Now Google Knows Where I Am

Google has just announced the release of a new version of it’s Google Maps with My Location application that “knows” where you are based on the cell towers you are connecting to. It seems very cool and scary all at the same time. I would not be surprised if the next version integrates with Google Ads. While I am looking up an address, ads will be popping up on the screen for a store that I am driving by.

Update:
I just read this article that does in fact claim Google will be pushing ads based on location technology.

My Lost Obsession

Since the end of Lost Season 3, I have been obesessed with the thoeries I have found on various web sites. The most intriguing and indepth theory I have seen was posted by Andrew Smith’s site. I so hope he will evolve his comic strip that he has created to accompany his theories.

Also browsing through YouTube I have run across many videos that key into background information that I have not determined to be true or something made up outside of the show. One of which is the following video linked to www.hansoexposed.com.

After reviewing ABC’s Lost Connections site, I have found some things that I missed while watching the show.

I have to admit that I was a little disappointed finding out that the end of season 3 was not going to be the end of show. I was not sure how it would last for the announced three more seasons. But, after reading a few of these fan sites, I realize that there is so much that I don’t know, so many connections left to be made and questions to be answered that I cannot wait for the next season to start. In the meantime I will continue to obsess over the theories and details that I can glean from the web and be all ready to go for season 4.

Windows Live Writer

This post is being created by Window Live Writer.  I was just about to check out a tool called BlogJet when I came across a news article discussing the beta of Windows Live Writer.  I have not compaired the two as of yet but Windows Live Writer hooked right up to my WordPress blog site and seems to be very easy to use.  More to come as I get into more features.

Invasion cancelled?

I have been a faithful viewer of ABCs Invasion. After watching the season finale I was left a little disapppinted. But now I am hearing that the show will not be back next season.

You would think that if they were going to cancel the show that they could have rode off with a huge “War of the Worlds” type of ending. Or maybe something like a clone army of Sheriff Tom Underlays fighting off the hybrids and then the final face-off between Zura and Underlay.

Killing off Larkins character as the big season finale cliffhanger…thats just LAME!!!

Life Hacks

So I was listening to a podcast by Scott Hanselman at www.hanselminutes.com and the subject was Life Hacks and I had one of those moments that made me stop and think.

A Life Hack is a basically an organizational tip or trick to help bring some order back to your life. Everybody has a cell phone, PDA, blog, instant messenger and 200 junk e-mails to deal with everyday. In between all of that blitz of media we have to do our job, take the kids to soccer practice, and mow the lawn. There doesnt seem to be enough hours in the day (or so I thought).

If you get a chance, go out and pick up the book Getting Things Done by David Allen. I am sure there a more than a couple things that you will be able to use to make you life simpler and help put you back in control.

I have also been listening to Merlins podcast at http://www.43folders.com/podcast. He provides some interesting perspective on David Allens GTD book as well as his a few of his own thoughts. He usually starts with a very offbeat anecdote but then ties it into a GTP principal that really makes you think. The Hipster PDA is pure genius.
