iPhone 3G

First things first… it comes out July 11th, so all of you calm down. Now, for those who don’t know what I’m talking about, it’s all about the new iPhone… iPhone 3G. If anything was missing from the original iPhone release, it was 3G support as opposed to EDGE technology. The simplest way to ...SHARETHIS.addEntry({ title: "iPhone 3G", url: "http://www.seanpaune.com/2008/06/09/ipho ne-3g/" });

Hard Drive Failure

Well, the Dell Vostro 1500 I got in late April had something go wrong with the hard drive on Wednesday, and it is completely fraked. I went home on Wednesday afternoon to do some work, turned it on and was greeted by a blue screen of death. After several attempts, I couldn’t even get it ...SHARETHIS.addEntry({ title: "Hard Drive Failure ", url: "http://www.seanpaune.com/2008/06/08/hard -drive-failure/" });

U2 Manager Likens ISPs To Shoplifters
2008-06-07 20:25:00
Paul McGuinness, the long time manager of the super group U2, is up to his antics again. Back in January of this year, Mr. McGuiness made an infamous speech about how all Internet Service Providers (ISPs) should institute a three strike policy for people caught engaging in music piracy on the Internet.

Transformers 2: Revenge of the Fallen

Yes folks, I’ve been trying to fight the urge, but it’s that time again. That magical time where Michael Bay makes another movie where it looks like he threw a bunch of ideas in a blender, hit “mince” and then put the results on celluloid for all of us to “oooh” and “awww” at.

Jim Davis Calls Garfield Minus Garfield ?Fascinating?
2008-06-03 23:42:00
When I first wrote about Garfield Minus Garfield, I thought for sure that the strip’s original creator, Jim Davis , would eventually shut the strip that removes his beloved cat down. Sure, it?s silly on some levels, and you wonder how long this can last before Jim Davis, the creator of the comic strip, tries to shut ...SHARETHIS.addEntry({ title: "Jim Davis Calls Garfield Minus Garfield “Fascinating”", url: "http://www.seanpaune.com/2008/06/03/jim- davis-garfield-minus-garfield/" });
Bo Diddley
2008-06-03 05:16:00
Bo Diddley was one of those musicians that most people would see him and go, “Oh yeah, that guy with the square guitar.” Then they would just move on. Sometimes, and even worse, they remember him for that “You Don’t Know Bo” TV commercial with Bo Jackson. Without Bo, rock n’ roll wouldn’t have moved forward like it did. Bands like the Rolling Stones may not have happened, and his influence is still heard in guitar riffs all over the musical spectrum. His guitar playing was always a mixture of pulse-pounding riffs mixed with a sense that at any moment they might spin wildly out of control, losing all semblance of planned music. His playing always seemed to leave you with a sense of wanting to say, “Whew! We made it out alive!” In short, he was one of the greats, and it’s a sad day for music that he’s gone. Hopefully history will remember him well for his contributions to the musical sounds we enjoy today. ShareThis
Metallica Backpeddles Their Way To Relevancy
2008-06-01 08:50:00
In 2000, Metallica founder Lars Ulrich was one of the biggest names and faces associated with fighting the file-sharing site Napster. I can vividly remember Lars wheeling a cart load of documents (for obvious photographic effect) up to the doors of Napster, proving who had shared his band’s music through the music site. He then ...SHARETHIS.addEntry({ title: "Metallica Backpeddles Their Way To Relevancy", url: "http://www.seanpaune.com/2008/06/01/meta llica-backpeddles-their-way-to-relevancy/ " });
Apple Fans Begin To Worry Me

The other day I talked about how Apple fans were obsessing over some info on cargo containers. I thought, “Okay, one off oddity, whatever.” Yeah… I was wrong. Two more stories have popped up since then that make me wonder how you can obsess this much over a company and its products.

I have never purchased from Ikea before, but after several mentions on collectibles sites, I decided to give their Detolf display cases a go.

Rachael Ray And The Scarf
2008-05-29 20:16:00
As long time readers of my blog will attest, I despise Rachael Ray. I have even likened her to “Satan’s evil servant“, she annoys me just that much. However, and this may cause the Earth to be torn asunder… I think this criticism of her is just ludicrous.

Someone Wake Me When The 1980s End Again
2008-05-29 08:41:00
Apparently the studios in Hollywood have suddenly realized the 1980’s were twenty years ago, and it’s time to remake every movie under the sun. The latest reports I’m hearing have us seeing remakes of the 1980 version of Flash Gordon, 1984 invasion thriller Red Dawn and the original Highlander movie from 1986. Why?

Ageism Is Getting Rampant

Just the other day I spoke about how a social network, Faceparty, had decided it was best to delete people over 36-years-old because they may be sex offenders.

I’ve waited 30 years for a better Millennium Falcon toy. The picture to the right shows what’ I’ve been waiting for. See, the one they released in 1978 was “okay”, but it always seemed lacking.

How I Did With Last Year’s TV Predictions
2008-05-15 20:49:00
Since there are no upfront presentations today, I thought I’d score myself on how I called last season’s predictions. ABC Samantha Who? (formerly “Sam I Am”) Sean’s take: Sam I Am stars Christina Applegate… anyone remember “Jesse”? Yeah… exactly my point. In sandwiching this between Dancing With The Stars and The Bachelor makes NO sense. And could someone tell me how The Bachelor keeps finding this many desperate women? It survived, and actually got decent reviews and ratings. Caveman and Carpoolers Sean’s take: No one, NO ONE, is upbeat about Caveman. I have no clue how it even made the schedule. And Carpoolers? A sitcom set… in a car… yeah, okay. Both flopped. Pushing Daisies, Private Practice, Dirty Sexy Money Sean’s take: All three sound like crap basically. I don’t like Grey’s Anatomy, so Private Practice holds no interest for me. Dirty Sexy Money is just a silly name, and Pushing Daisies… look, it’s Dark Angel season 2! Private...
