Around the Web – 3/5/2009


  • Like robots? The Big Picture has pictures.
  • E.T. Phone Home. The Kepler Spacecraft will launch Friday in its quest for Earth-like planets in Earth-like places.
  • Read Kindle Books on Your iPhone. Can’t afford to shell out $359 for a Kindle 2? Download this free app that lets you read Kindle books on your iPhone instead.
  • How to Make Your PC Boot Faster. I know, my brother would say, “Buy a Mac.” (See PC and Mac in the Garden of Eden) The “/noguiboot” setting was a new one for me.
  • Gdrive in 2009. Google Drive, or Gdrive as it is better known, will offer online storage where Google servers have enough capacity to hold the entire contents of your hard drive. (Question: Do you want to give Google access to every file on your hard drive?)

    Google has an operational principle of “Don’t Be Evil”. However, I do feel awkward about how much of my information they keep and the fact that all of the advertisements in Gmail are contextually relevant to the message I am reading or the messages in the folder I am viewing.

    They are good at what they do, but sometimes it does have a bit of a Orwellian feel to it.
