Macworld again... *sigh*

I love this time of year. Xmas has passed, my birthday has just passed a few days ago... I can look forward to Macworld and think about xmas/birthday presents I can buy for myself.

What you don't do that? Duuhh.. :)

This year was good. I'm thinking its time to get the Apple TV and the Apple Air. I'm also leaning toward the iTouch rather than the iPhone.

I just don't do verbal. I don't like to chit-chat and talk bollocks.. fortunately my Mrs doesn't either.

I also don't want to commit to a 2 year contract. I think carriers suck more in the US... or maybe they just have more power.

In any case.. Loren Feldman again best sums up macworld.

Fate of Facebook

I was watching a vlog by Loren Feldman (I wish we had more of that NY attitude in Bay Area) about his departure from Facebook.

I tend to agree. Facebook really doesn't offer me *anything*. I'm fed up of it and specifically people who are on it.

Listen.. I try and update my status, ping people and generally interact, but I've noticed that more and more people just can't be bothered to be social.
I thought that was the point of joining a social network? The use of technology to maintain social relationships. Hello?

I've come to to conclusion that people join these things becz its cool and their friends are there or for marketing. Once the've had their initial fill they don't bother logging in again. Grrhh..

With Scoble being temporarily kicked off Facebook (he was breaking the TOS by extracting his own data), leaves a bitter taste in my mouth. The whole Beacon incident has made me realize that I can't trust Facebook to the same degree that I trust Google.
