Nice one, sun

Came across this site a few days ago, but it was down due to excessive hammering. Still worth posting here for those who may not have seen it. Fabulous piccies of the sun done using some special Swedish boffin technology. Amazing.

Love 15

The Candystand Tennis Game is a great free Shockwave tennis game. It also has lots of advertisements spread liberally around. Does this make it an Adver-Game? I suspect so, but does it really matter that much?

Oh so close….!

When I first saw this I thought, YES! At last a real competitor for the iPod. Until I looked closer and saw that the Neuros MP3 Digital Audio Computer features sluggish old USB 1.1 transfer technology. Aaargh! Don’t these folks realise that for 20GB storage devices you need SPEED to upload your tracks? Anyhoo, apart from that, the specs look to be really quite awesome – * 20GB hard disk * HiSi feature which lets you audition a song on…

Smellyvision

Is smell the last uncharted territory in computing? Do we all harbour a secret desire to smell the roses of that gardening Web site or sniff damp cellars in our scary computer gaming?
