Hello 2.0

psp browser

Finally installed the PSP 2.0 firmware update and I can now browse the internet from my PSP. Cool shit.

Update: So far first impressions of the browser is thats its pretty cool, perfect for checking up on sites from bed before I go to sleep or at the airport while I wait to pick someone up. I haven’t any problems browsing except for 2 websites. 2:48AM’s sidebar didn’t show up on the PSP and Idontlikeyouinthatway.com gave me an out of memory error. Other then that everything worked like a charm. To make my life easier I also create a homepage for the PSP which includes links to all the sites I visit, this way I don’t have to type each one out manually.

Info on Your Apple Laptop Battery

Posted by Mark

This is a really cool software called coconutBattery and I can’t wait to use it on Nat’s PowerBook once I get home. This software gives you a whole bunch of details about the laptops battery including how much charge it originally held and how much it holds now. Nat’s battery is pretty messed up, in OS X it says her battery would last for 26 more hours when in reallity its more like 26 minutes. [Link]

Bortukala

Posted by Mark

I don’t like Arabic songs nor do I listen to them but for some reason I like Bortukala. Here are two versions of the Bortukala video. I guess the first one was made when the guy didn’t have any money and the second one once the song became more popular. I believe the word bortukala in this Iraqi song is like biatch in a rap video?

Bortukala 1 (3.98MB)
Bortukala 2 (2.62MB)

Google Account & Gmail

google

A few days ago I noticed that every time I copy pasted a url from my Google search results it added some new google gibrish to the url. So I did a bit of research on this and it turns out google has a new option where it tracks your searches for you. To disable this you need to go to google.com and on the top right hand corner click on Search History and then on Pause. [Link]

Finally, there is a new option in Gmail where you can change your “From:” email address. Click on Settings then Accounts.

Google Talk
Have you google talked yet? I have to say I think this is the worst idea from Google. I personally don’t think they can penetrate the MSN and Yahoo communities. [Link]
