Journal: Google operating system

Journal by Oldsmobile

So, should Google just go for it and start working on a Linux based operating system. IMHO yes. Today it's probably easier than before, since Windows Vista isn't exactly on a roll.

Journal: I finally got a series 60 Nokia phone!

Journal by Oldsmobile

I've finally gotten my hands on a series 60 Nokia phone, an E65 infact. So far, I'm in total love with it. Upgrading from my previous phone, the Motorola RAZR, it's like going from gadget to a real computer.

I liked the hardware and haptics on the RAZR, but the software sucked ass, whereas now I've got a phone with so so haptics but excellent software.

Now I've been itching to take a video clip with it of some interesting event so I can post it up on you tube!

Journal: I finally know what's wrong with Wikipedia!

Journal by Oldsmobile

Yay! I finally realized what the problem with Wikipedia is. Why there are edit wars, why there is no respect for expertise and the many other problems.

It is due to the lack of notation. Notation is not required in Wikipedia articles. However, it could easily be made a rule, that any bit of information entered should refer to some material. Any material without notations should be clearly marked as personal opinion or the ramblings of some madman or whatever.

This would finally fix Wikipedia!

Journal: People are dumb

Journal by Oldsmobile

Someone complaned about my comment to the Challenger disaster and social conflict in the 80's and got my comment moderated from +5 to -1 flame bait. What a dumbass, especially considering his rather ill-informed critique.

Journal: Degrading comments

Journal by Oldsmobile

My comments have degraded from witty observations to simple silly shouts from the sidelines. I need to start reading posts again.

I did think the article on internet newspapers sucked.

Journal: Trolling on the Iraq war

Journal by Oldsmobile

Well, I decided to troll a bit, since my karma was so good and write a few comments on the Iraq war. Got a few replies, thought they seemed to degenerate into manic rants on how America is bringing democracy to Iraq.

Oh well, since the only people reading it were fanatical supporters of war, it didn't seem very usefull to start a flame war on the matter.

Wrote a comment on the Patriot act post, and got an immediate reply about the assassins, should have expected that. Luckily someone corrected the commentor before I had to so I don't think I'll comment.
