GoogleTV seems interesting. It’s basically just like Sezmi, except it works with DVRs and STBs from any TV provider, not just OTA. Oh, and no monthly fee either (I’m guessing.) I had Sezmi free for a few months during the LA pilot program and was so unimpressed with the hardware and implementation that I returned…

It’s nice to be nice
It’s nice to be nice to people when they’re not expecting it. (It’s the bus driver’s birthday.)

HTML email is hard
If you thought browser support for web standards was tough, try getting HTML email to look the same in every mail client. You can’t. Not even close. The best you can hope for is to have your design degrade gracefully in less-able clients. You can’t just save and hit F5 to reload and view your…
Sprint is about to get rich
I have unlimited data, 200 text messages, and 450 minutes of talkin’ with AT&T. That costs me $80 a month and I’ve always considered it to be highway robbery…especially since I don’t send very many texts and I only use about 200 minutes a month. Sprint (under their Virgin Mobile brand) is about to unveil…
