The Threadless of pins, Prickie buttons

  • June 9th, 2006

About a month ago, I received a few buttons from Since then, these pins have found their way on to my own messenger bag, a friends backpack, and a few computer desktops. Having received quite a number of inquiries concerning the tiny 1″ buttons, I realized that I had yet to share my thoughts […]

UPDATE: Content removed as per requested. Personal email credentials removed from the original post. Check the comments for the explanation.

Taking advantage of Skype on OSX

  • June 5th, 2006

As I had foreseen late last month after Skypes’ announcement that all SkypeOut calls would be free (through the end of the year), I can now admit that I am definitely running up the bill. Not by the minute, but by the hour. Today alone, I’ve clocked in 6 hours of SkypeOut calls. Hell, there […]

Collaborative research on OSX & Windows

  • June 3rd, 2006

Not surprisingly, the following is inspired by an actual end-of-the-quarter research project including multiple group members, multiple operating systems – including Windows & OSX – on both public (school) and private (personal) machines, varying degrees of computer knowledge & experience, and one shared topic. Being that I am in a bit of a anti-productive state […]

9rules dishes the round 4 list

  • June 3rd, 2006

What a task for Scrivens and the gang. The round 4 list of accepted submissions has been published on the 9rules blog. Tyme compiled a clickable list of the accepted entrants. Some people have emailed me to tell me how fortunate we are to have so many sites submit during round 4 and admittedly it […]

Recommended Dashboard Widgets

  • June 1st, 2006

Earlier today while browsing digg I stumbled upon a story titled The 9 Best Widgets [OSX Dashboard]. Re-familiarizing myself with OSX, I thought to myself “great, 9 of the best widgets that I should probably consider”. Based on the number of diggs (700+) the post managed to collect, I figured that the list had to […]

Initial impressions of the 2GHz MacBook

  • May 27th, 2006

My initial impression(s) of the MacBook 2GHz Core Duo? Amazing. These machines are very much as capable as their older sibling MacBook Pro’s. With the first revisions of these MacBook already nipping at the Pro’s heels with 2.0 GHz Core Duo’s, the decision as to whether that extra few hundred is really worth the metal […]

Apple Store: Not about the hardware or experience

  • May 24th, 2006

Recently, a friend and I dropped in at the local Apple Store (University Village) due to a minor mishap with her older G4 iBook. Somehow, the magnetic latch had managed to find itself slighty misaligned which prevented the cover from locking properly. We figured it wouldn’t hurt to take a few minutes to drop in […]

Personal interview on Pinoy WordPress

  • May 24th, 2006

Benji from PinoyWordPress, which caters to the Flilipino WordPress community, fired some one-on-one questions my way for an online interview. Something entirely new for me considering the interview focused on the roots of my current “aspiring” design phase. P_WP: Hi and welcome to, let’s start out first with how you got started in the […]

Haribo Gummie bears in 5 lb. packs

  • May 21st, 2006

I had no idea. I almost drooled at the thought of having one of these 5 pound bulk bags of Haribo Gummi bears sitting on my table. Reality soon set in. What if I actually had one of these giant bags of Haribo bears? Would my taste buds soon reject the idea of consuming 5 […]
