I don’t know if you’ve noticed, but this is the start of week 42 of 2009, meaning that there are only 10 weeks left until the start of a new decade. Pretty exciting stuff. I can vividly remember when the ball dropped in NYC and it turned 2000. I was there. Something that wasn’t so glamorous and memorable however was my RSS reader this morning. It took only an hour to clear through 300 items, most of which were total bollocks. That being said, there were 3 mildly interesting videos that were passed around. Without further ado:
The Palm Pre being dunked in a glass of beer, working for a few seconds, and then dying. Some people who have way too much time and money made this. You can tell by their idiotic belly laughs. [Via: Gizmodo]
The Nokia N900, like the iPhone 3GS, can lock focus at a fixed point at the start of recording a video and then hold that focus for the duration of the video recording. There will be a day, some day, when autofocus can be had while recording video, but until that day comes, this is the best technology can bring us. [Via: The Nokia Blog]
An 11 minute preview of the new Samsung Giorgio Armani Windows Mobile 6.5 phone that was recently announced in Italy. What can I say, it’s a really pretty phone, I just wish it ran Android. [Via: Daily Mobile]
Enjoy your week. Keep fucking that chicken.
