A while ago I posted an article on our sister blog, Jo'blog, about a cleaning product that I thought was particularly useful. The post's heading 'Free advertising' worked wonders on google.co.za, but it's been drawing the wrong kind of people, non-bloggers (obviously) who think it's a free platform to display their stuff. Selling cars, internet services, special event planning, buying stocks and most recently, Crack-a-caps.
Bizarre. I love the bit about the 'trendy frayed patch'. Genius! Haha!

Quite possibly the worst phone, ever...
I buy a fair amount of phones every year, generally of the smart variety. This bad boy is the worst I've had in ages. Ladies and gentlemen, allow me to present, the SonyEricsson M600i:
Crap interface, non-tactile on-screen s/end buttons (one of the many reasons I'm in no rush for this). Idiotic phonebook search, unimpressive battery life, and badly placed function buttons i.e. you're always pushing one when you should be pushing the other.
Pity she didn't take the phone with her...!

I'm so smart.

Will 3D printing be a crime?
Imagine having a 3D printer. Need a larger coffee mug, print it. Need a chair? Print the parts and assemble. There are millions of everyday (and not so everyday) objects that you could just print out if you needed it. What if it had a copper/metal cartridge, you could print out circuits. Start printing electronic devices? Fuck...
Anyway I was wondering then, what if someone created an iPod in the software and made it available to download via bittorrent? Then millions of users would be download object files and printing there own accessories etc. I hope it happens soon... :)
Well here's the start of it...
And if you like the idea of that, then listen to this... (It's called "Printcrime" by Cory Doctorow)
