Google’s April Fool not so effective this time

Sunday, April 1st, 2007

Except that you ain’t fooling me this year!!

Google TiSP (BETA) is a fully functional, end-to-end system that provides in-home wireless access by connecting your commode-based TiSP wireless router to one of thousands of TiSP Access Nodes via fiber-optic cable strung through your local municipal sewage lines.

It’s pretty daft this one, their pigeon post one I thought was the best but this is not so cool as the other ones.

Any fools who believed this one?

Addiction to the Web as a form of sacrifice?

Friday, March 30th, 2007

Is giving up internet or myspace or facebook truly a sacrifice?

In this recent CNN article it was discussed how students give up social networking sites during Lent as a form of sacrifice so they gain spiritually, normally people fast during this time of year. Because it is so addicting, it can be considered a “true sacrifice”.

Maybe I am not completely addicted to the Internet as they are, but is that truly a sacrifice that will bring you closer to your religion worthy of the term “sacrifice” ?

Somehow, I don’t think this is true. Should a smoker be given praise for sacrificing smoking during Lent as a form of sacrifice only to return to this later on?

Fasting is a need, perhaps Internet is a need to, but would you consider not talking to anyone over your phone a sacrifice that is more meaningful, or fasting or doing community work as a larger (and more meaningful) sacrifice?

How about I stop playing World of Warcraft for the period of Lent as my form of sacrifice (if I were Christian) ? I don’t know about you, but I think this is a pretty lame sacrifice.

Miyazaki’s new Movie Gake No Ue No Ponyo

Wednesday, March 21st, 2007

Only very little information is available but it’s official, animation grandmaster Hayao Miyazaki will be making a new Movie slated for a release in 2008 called Ponyo on a Cliff.
The basic outline is about a goldfish princess who wishes to become Human and a five year old boy, Sosuke is involved with the goldfish princess Ponyo.

The setting is in Seto ( 瀬戸内海 ) which is the setting of the scenery, no doubt awe inspiring if it can inspire Miyazaki himself!

It is widely discussed that Miyazaki used his own Son as the outline for Sosuke, where he felt that he did not spend enough time trying to understand him. His son Goro directed another feature film by Studio Ghible called Tales from the Eathsea which was apparently poorly received by Hayao Miyazaki himself for a variety of reasons, causing friction within the family. Could this be a form of self reflection and redemption?
