(That means "first day" and it's a biblical reference.)

I've ranted before about Google's long game; see Google's Endgame. I 2011, I predicted that Google was aiming at a unified user interface. I was partially right. Google is still aiming at a unified UI, but their goals are going so much deeper than that. I just wiped my cell phone, and the experience gave me a taste of the future, Google style.

All you need to know is there's a cut scene where a character talks about someone he lost, while Free Bird plays in the background.

Ice Cream Sandwich is the tasty new version of Android. A lot of the latest Android phones have gotten it already, but the Droid Bionic is still waiting. Waiting so long, in fact, it's starting to get embarassing. The truth is Motorola has been working on it, and a few very good "beta" versions have leaked to the web. So good, in fact, people are starting to wonder what they're waiting for. Personally, I got impatient and decided to take matters into my own hands.

For a while now I've felt that the Linux desktop isn't just "as good as" Windows / Mac OS; it's better. But is such an issue even relevant, as everything goes to the cloud? Yes - here's why.

a.k.a. "Procrastination, 21st-century style." I wanted a new skydome for my spinny cube (think: "computer desktop wallpaper"). I've got a space theme going on right now, and wanted a simple photograph of the Space Shuttle flying alone in orbit. Turns out there aren't that many photographs of this, probably because it was rare for the shuttle to be orbiting near another manned spacecraft. (Although not that rare; the shuttle docked with both Mir and the ISS.

I've hardly made it a secrety that I love Google and everything they do. But I also like to emphasize that I don't think everything they do is wonderful simply because I'm a fanboy. Rather, I am a fanboy because everything they do is wonderful. If the day comes where they start making terrible products, or someone else is making better, then I will switch allegiance. Will that day come? Probably; I used to say the same thing about Yahoo.
