New Twist on Old Classic – Lemon Tea for the Winter Chill

(c) FreeFoto.comI have been visiting irc channels lately, especially the #TeamWhiskey one as I am a user of their rom for the Samsung Vibrant.  My buddy Miles has a cold.  He was kind enough to make some Stop Motion animation that featured me, so I am returning the favor.  Feel better.

As long as I can remember my parents have been treating my numerous colds with the same old remedy.  Warm Lemon Tea…

Review: Boxee Box

Rainbow Boxee BoxHere is the much promised Boxee Box review.

Well, what can I say.  Yes, it is odd looking.  And very pretty all at once.  Kinda like the Hellraiser cube.  Scary and beautiful.  But, not like it will kill you. It makes your life mo bettah. And isn’t that what we all want? A mo bettah life? Say yes. Ok. I saw the question posted on twitter, Why would you pay $200 for this when the Boxee software is free. And after hugging it out we came to the conclusion that for people that don’t want a second computer or a really big machine right next to their glorious 40″ flat screen, $200 is not all that bad. And I’ve had a Roku for a year, so I’m not coming at this with no base.

Boxee Box Launch Event

Boxee T-ShirtOn November 10th Pipe and I went to the Boxee Box Launch Event here in NYC.  We weren’t sure what to expect, but we knew it was going to be great.  It was cold out.  We had to wait outside.  No one knew what line we had to be in (We were there as press) and were actually bounced back and forth a few times.  We finally settled on the Vip/Guest List Line and after 30 minutes or so the line started heading in.  Weeeellllll, I have NO idea what the organizers were thinking, but while they checked 1 person off the guest list 10 from general admission walked in.  They even had their “Let me get drunk” bracelets on. This was not the greatness I was expecting.  After about 10 minutes of the VIP’s mean muggin the staff, they just started letting everyone in and slapping us with bracelets.  Woot!  I was happy again.

Review: Tmo Samsung Vibrant (Update 09/17/2010)

Avatar on Samsung Vibrant ScreenThe phone has been out for some time now, and I finally got one as a gift.  Thank you, Pipe!  Yes, sadly, there is no Front Facing Camera it was all a dream…  or rather a nightmare.  That was T-Mobile’s call (a terrible lapse of judegement) and Samsung had to comply if they wanted to sell phones.  The international version, Samsung Galaxy S GT-i9000, does have the FFC.  So, does the Canadian model and looks like the Sprint model has FFC and uniquely a physical 5-row keyboard (Nice!).  But, I don’t have access to those phones.  My only base for Android comparisons are the HTC manufactured T-Mobile G1 and the My Touch.  Right out of the box you can tell you’re looking at an upgrade.  Read more
