Bill Gates = street cred +1, 3 Geekerisms, 2007s 3 big web trends chartered

Most of the time we all think Bill Gates is the ultimate evolution form of the geek:

– The kid you payed out can now buy your family and make them dig for lemmings

– Likes computers and has oversized frames that make Steve Urkle look less retarded

– At one stage (for a long ass time) had social skills that equate to that of a home schooled man girl (WTF?).

ANYWAY this clip made my respect for him that is already upmost, skyrocket. Not only  has he created an empire, he knows how to have a good laugh. The man is a role model for all, unless you think otherwise but meh.

 Great post by Steve Rubel from Micropersuasion –  And the 3 web trends are:

1. Social Networks

2.  Microblogging

3. Web Applications

Check the link for a detailed synopsis.

Here’s a great article.

A Mexican boy by the name of Diego, glued his hand to his bed because he didn’t want to go to school hahaha

‘Palacios said Diego sneaked into the kitchen in the early morning to get the industrial glue, which he then slathered on his right hand. She didn’t hear him get up, but later awoke and found him watching TV with his hand stuck to the bed, she told Mexican newspaper El Universal.’

Best quote today.  LINK to the article

On a green note for 2008 –

A list of 21 things we supposedly didn’t we could recycle!

Not only do i dislike gym buffs I dislike the actual gyms. From being tried to be sold to sign a contract that was 2 years+ to being hounded there after to join. If you’re looking to join a gym put some serious thought into it before you sign a contract – go for a short term or a per session basis.

Here’s a super list to keep you in check before you make a ‘dumb and dumber’ moment as you sign the contract.

Finally for all those that are looking into buying a next- gen gaming console. Here’s a chart to help you make your decision that much more easier. I have a wii….and a PC.

Too many it seems internets is a way to fill in for our bf/gf…check these stats. Makes one ponder upon where does the fine line between online social interactions actually start to hinder the offline? But then again, if you’re having fun who’s to judge? But you know, we all love the Star Wars kid (clip that will make u guffaw) .

Has your gf beat your ass at the game you claim to be awesome at? Get ready to get royally owned by the lady gamers…Chicks dig games is a new site designed for the refined female gamer that likes to frag, shank and pwn your lazy ass at games.

Here’s an article that will at least give you a guideline of what brands to consider and bash when purchasing a LCD or plasma TV.

Feeling a little down? emo? LOL Etavitom is the place to bring motivation and inspiration to your life!

Zune? iPod, Google opens OpenSocial, Give yoself a ROFL!

 Hey guys,

Awfully sorry on the delay! I now have the connection I need to hook up a mean post!

Oh by the way, I just saw the movie Munich, an eye-opening story on the Israeli and Palestinian fighting based on the 1972 Munich massacre. If you haven’t seen it yet, feel free to check it out some time. 8.5/10

Hope we are all well, shall we begin?

Tech Love

So Microsoft’s answer to the iPod – the Zune has a new campaign, do you like it? Too bad I just bought a new 3rd gen iPod nano, now it took a little time to grow on me but I guess I’m slowly becoming a fanboy…damnit!

Google opens OpenSocial and provides Orkut support, are you social? To learn more about OpenSocial go here.

This is for the marketing minded, how much advertisers pay for the attention of NYC – a nice way to ballpark figures for campaigns. I hope you enjoyed as much as I did. It’s a video clip by the way (less than 2 minutes and worth it).

Here’s a great link for the Creative minds, 30+ links for Mind Mapping Tools!

Lifestyle

I had to post this hehe This is how to get laid in 1977 and your ass kicked in 2007. NICE as ice with tonic.

Best Bollywood clip translation EVAR! ooooooooooaaaaaaaaauuuueee Benny Lava (watch it and you’ll LOL)

Now I love my gaming so when in need of an energy boost or the extra kilo that will turn me into Gimli I turn to my list of top 23 snacks for gaming! Some are on the edge of pushing the edge of whether you are a fully fledged macho male – but if you like pedicures, manicures etc.  then read on past #13  Our friendly local sys admin and I decided #1-13 is just fine for the majority of us. 🙂

Scientists find the oldest living animal. Then kill it. The title made me ROFL OL.

What’s a ROFL without a pic?

idiot

Have a great week guys!
