OK so it was not actually a Kingston memory stick that I got given for Christmas. But this 8GB beauty has changed my work laptop from OK to great. I stuck it in and the option window came up asking me if I would like to use it as readyboost. What the hell I thought lets go for it.

Hardware technology by itself is just a useless piece of plastic/metal/grains of sand.

Julius realises he has taken the wrong fork in the road?

Posted by DBS in Untagged 

DBS

If you want to get the headlines in the Sunday TImes there are a number of things that jyou can do. Firstly you can get found out for corruption or fraudulant dealings as Beke Cele, Schabir Shaik and a few others have. You can get there for being promiscuous as other personalities have done. but the cake must go to Julius Malema.

iPad note taking apps Moleskine on the iPad?

Posted by DBS in Untagged

Moleskin is a name that many people will associate with high quality notebooks of varying sizes.
I downloaded the iPad version to give it a try as well.
Immediately I didn’t like it. It won’t work in landscape mode so you have to turn it to be portrait.
This is one application that you need to look at the help to get started and that is to me counter intuitive with apple applications. It will allow you to write on the screen using your finger or stylus and you can also use the keyboard as well. However selecting the input mode is very tedious and not quick to do.
It does not have any palm protection so you have to use it carefully if writing.
It does have different paper style including squared, plain and ruled. It will also allow you to share your thoughts with facebook, twitter and email which some people may like.
Also missing is voice recording.
You can also input images that you have taken using the camera.
If I wanted an application to use as a travel log then this might be an option. But for an application to use in a sales environment it is just too slow to use and the lack of landscape mode makes it not the best implementation of an Apple application.

There are some things that developers including those at Apple do that try to turn the product visually into something that it is not.
