Shizzolate that Shiznitt

Was looking at some sites and found a good find. Check out Snoop Dogg's Shizzolator, a well cool site that converts any site to Shizzle language. Have fun trying to Shizzolate the CNN website.
Click here to go to The Shizzolator and Click here to see a Shizzolated version of my blog.


Check out Guess-The-Google its a game where the Google Image Search process gets reversed, you have to guess what was written to get the pictures shown.
Also, I found a really nice site on GoogleHacking. Check it out , it has all the hacks and information on one blog so it's easy to read. Click here to read GoogleHacking.
Also check out this article on how to Supercharge software, good for those people who are STUCK with Windows.

Ohh and by the way, Firefox passed its 50 million download mark.

Blazing new Power Mac G5

Apple have done it again, another blazing fast PC that emits an architectural aura of brilliance (man i love their designs). Basic info about the Power Mac G5
The new Power Mac G5 line extends as far as you require. Two 64-bit G5 processors reaching top speeds of 2.7GHz, room for up to 8GB of main memory, pro performance graphics cards and ultrahigh-bandwidth system architecture will give you more results than systems costing twice as much.
You'll have to see it to believe it. Pictures courtesy a friend on Neowin can be seen here, and here.

Games go Sky-High

On a sunny California day, Lou Myers and three others became the first people ever to play a Super Mario game while plummeting from the sky at terminal velocity.
Lou Myers and three of his friends jumped of a place at terminal velocity of a plane so that they could be the first people to play the Nintendo DS quite high up in the air. Also, they tested their PSP's to full potential by standing at a LA intersection. Suprisingly, even at 300 feet apart, the wireless connectivity of the PSP was uneffected.

Internet Explorer 7 : Firefox killer? Nah..

Suprise, after Mozilla's succesful release of Firefox (the browser market figures for Firefox are so small; its no threat, it's just that they are gaining more ground) Microsoft has decided it's about time to come up with a new version to their buggy and flawed browser.
Enter IE 7.
Worth a read, to see what Microsoft are scheming.

Google yourself

Heres an article by the people at Wired News called "Check Yourself Out on Google". It's about the personalization of Google for each of it's members so that the search engine remembers who you are. Click here to read the article.


The Revolution has been announced.

With all the rumours that are going around about Nintendo going to show their upcoming Revolution console or not, we decided it was definitely time to get some confirmation so we called our contact within Nintendo and wouldn't leave the phone alone until we got a definite reply on the question "Will the Revolution be shown at E3 ?"

Well, ladies and gentlemen, we can now safely say "Yes!" to that question. Our PR contact confirmed that the Revolution will not only be talked about but also be shown at E3. Whether it will be playable however has yet to be confirmed.

Xbox 360 : Its all happening so fast!

Heres what i found out when i woke up today,

The popular gaming news website Evil Avatar has once again gotten its hands on the latest puzzle solution to the Xbox 360 from Our Colony. The picture this time shows a chrome image of some part of the Xbox 360. This indicates that in fact the Xbox 360 does not have an in fact white (platinum white shell), but a chrome/metal like appearance.

Also, a little bit more on the development kits for the Xbox 360

Now before you frantically click the title, be warned, these are not pics of the actual console. They are pics of the development kits sent out I believe last May or June to developers. Back then, the actual system was in such early stages that they shipped Mac G5 computers instead (free of charge I'd assume) to developers to start work on the next gen titles. The article claims that the kit is housed inside the case, when in fact this is not true. These are basically G5 systems (because they use PowerPC processors like the upcoming Xbox 360), but they are running a different kernal and operating system.

WIFI : What is it ?

Heres a handy article posted by the nice people at Cnet on WIFI. Click to read FAQ : Wifi Alphabet Soup

Set phasers to "May the 12th" !

The machine can stand upright and hollows in at the middle, like it's "sucking in its cheeks," our source told us today. Previous rumours had put the console as light silver, although fresh information says the final design may be white. It's impossible to tell from the documents, our source explained - although the glimpse of the machine's controllers given on viral marketing website OurColony does suggest a platinum-white colour scheme for the hardware.
The time has come ladies and gentlemen, the ultimte console-slaying machine is about to be previewed on Mtv on May the 12th.

A new look and Firetune

Hello there or Yekshemesh, i've changed the look and feel of the blog after i thought the Blogger template was too colourful, the current skin is much more simple. Thanks to help from the friendly people at Neowin. The template is from Blogger-Templates (theres a link on the blog).
  • Moving on, i was looking at new software and i found quite a decent program called Firetune. Firetune for Mozilla Firefox v1.x was developed for an easy and fast optimiazation of your browsing experience. Usually you have to optimize Firefox manually, which can be time consuming and difficult for the novice user.

April Fools Day

Unlike the GMail storage increase, Google Gulp is one of the first big April Fools jokes floating around the internet this year:

"At Google our mission is to organize the world's information and make it useful and accessible to our users. But any piece of information's usefulness derives, to a depressing degree, from the cognitive ability of the user who's using it. That's why we're pleased to announce Google Gulp (BETA)™ with Auto-Drink™ (LIMITED RELEASE), a line of "smart drinks" designed to maximize your surfing efficiency by making you more intelligent, and less thirsty."

Looks as though Wikipedia has been bought by Encyclopedia Britannica...

"On April 1, 2005, Encyclopædia Britannica - The Free Encyclopædia announced its immediate semi-hostile takeover of the Wikimedia Foundation and all of its projects (now to be called Britannican reference subdivisions), including Wikipedia (now called Wikipædia)"
