Apple included a game with the XCode developer tools – can you believe that?

And it’s not just any game (no it isn’t Halo), its BlastApp!! An old classic from the NeXt-days (ok, so I only read that in the about-box). You should try it out, it truly sucks.

 

I think 2004 will be the “year of the clean cola” for me.

When Pepsi Twist entered the market, it became my preferred cola, same with the Vanilla Coke, and more recently the Pepsi X. Right now though, I have come to the conclusion that clean Pepsi (or Cola, as long as it’s bottled on glass, or in cans) is the best. But cola needs to be served cool.

Yeah, on with the wrapping for me – merry Christmas to you all!

 

New Desktop!

22Dec03

First things first: all my Macs (and some friends) are covered with the most amazing Christmas desktop to hit the screens this holiday: mine. It’s just some hair, and some red color, but oh my it looks so good!

So if you haven’t already, go download by clicking the preview below!

Now on to the other desktop: again, mine.

I switched my two old desktops for a new, large one today.

New one, with all the stuff.

Zoom-in on the exciting stuff. Now I even have space for my EyeTV, HUB and Modem.

 

Well, not really, but todays topic is: girls and computers.

I’ve always felt/knew that my PowerBook setup was awesome – both visually and performance wise, but for many of the people who drop by my room, it is their first experience with a Mac. Boys will start out by asking about the specs, and when told it has “only a GHz”, they soon lose interest. Fine with me, really, so I can keep it to myself 🙂

Girls, however, go crazy! No questions about RAM or drive size here, just pure excitement!

One girl who had a look yesterday called it a “sinnsykt deilig maskin” – roughly translated, a terribly beautiful machine. Couldn’t agree more. It’s sexy, it has a smooth keyboard, a lit-up Apple at the back, and this whole aluminum feeling. It’s small and thin. Not to mention the JBL Creature speakers, looking rather small (at least if the amp/sub is hidden, which I’m thinking of doing right now), but with a huge sound. And the green LEDs lighting up below them. Aww.

My conclusion: girls are born Apple fans. They are the people who care more about esthete than horse power. Kinda like myself. But of course, to me, my Mac is also a tool, and not just furnishing.

 

Yay I’m alive and kicking!

Been busy doing my Christmas shopping recently, but it all starts coming to an end now. I still hope that I will get time to make a new movie this holiday season, and I hope that I’ll put the movie making in new gears this summer. Like a rapid production. I realize more now then ever, that it’s something I actually enjoy doing.

Watch out for more on my new web project in the coming weeks!

Oh, and I got to mention one cool piece of software, brought us by Eric whom we all love and know from Freshly Squeezed Software: Recent Tunes. Adding a menu bar item with your X number of most recently played songs in iTunes. Nice.

Ho, ho, ho!

Christmas is drawing closer, and in a weeks time, I’ll be home for the holidays. There is a lot to take care of, like installing Panther on the iMac. I will also try and push a few updates for my software, to enhance for Panther. And hopefully I’ll get some time to work on one of my upcoming web projects. More might come.

Right now though: relaxing.
