Jobs Says No to Flash on iPhone.

And while all the flash nerds can gripe and cry about this all they want… they should probably talk to someone who actually owns an iphone. I dunno about you, but me and my iPhone toting friends want NOTHING to do with something as insecure and unstable as flash on our cell phones, which are capable of making phone calls from telephone numbers printed on the web.

That’s just asking for some jackass hacker to come up with some way to exploit my phone and while I trust Adobe for photoshop, I don’t trust Adobe for anything else and certainly don’t want to have to mess with a resource hungry Adobe app on my iPhone. It takes 2 gig worth of RAM on my PC to make anything Adobe run smoothly, iPhones just don’t have that kind of real estate.

Speak up in the comments, fellow iPhone owners!… [Read More]

Gary Gygax, Father of D&D, Dies.

I wasn’t sure. Early reports on this came from Troll Lord Games’ forums, where people were posting that Gygax had passed, but nothing official had come out just yet. Then I came upon the story at a Wisconsin TV station, where Gygax lived with his wife. His wife confirmed his passing to the associated press… and there it is…

Gary Gygax, the man who co-designed Dungeons and Dragons, believed to be the very first roleplaying game, is dead. He was 69 years old, and at the time of his death was still writing adventures for D&D, even though he was no longer working on the core rules for D&D itself. Gygax and Arneson’s creation changed the world. It certainly changed my world. Gygax was certainly not one of my favorite characters in the gaming industry. It had been rumored for years that Gygax was a misogynist, among other major character flaws.… [Read More]

Heath Ledger Dies at 28.

How sad is this?

The suspected cause is a possible drug overdose, other than that no news. They found him today.

Apparently filming on The Dark Knight is already over and the film is in post-production right now according to IMDB, so we will still get to see Ledger’s performance as the Joker, but I was really hoping we would get to see more of him in this new Batman series. What I’ve seen so far of the new Joker is impressive and downright cool.

My heart goes out to Ledger’s family, particularly his 2 year old daughter, who barely even got the chance to know her dad. … [Read More]

I Love my AT&T Store.

So this morning, after 3 weeks… I received yet another anonymous text message from some person looking for some guy named Dave. It started a while back. My husband and I were watching House, and I was getting phone calls from this dude who sounded like he was stoned saying, “Eh… is Dave there?”

The problem is, I know several guys named Dave, and in an emergency situation, I could see one of them giving a stoner my phone number if he had no one else to turn to, so I always asked, “Which Dave, I know two and none of them live with me.” Stoner Dude (not his real name), hung up after saying, “Well it was his number this morning. Aww man!” After three days of this, I finally managed to convince Stoner Dude that this was not his phone number, and that he was going to have to come up with another way to get in touch with his friend.… [Read More]
