Wrapping up a busy week, getting ready for a not-busy-at-all weekend! Just talked to a friend and explained it as "football watching season", which also means "quiet programming while watching" season, thanks to Tivo and Slingbox. I need some downtime. Too bad USC lost to Oregon, otherwise tomorrow's Stanford game would be a lot bigger.
The Palm Pixi is out, and Engadget posted a rather complimentary review. Not groundbreaking like the Pre, but nicely evolutionary. I would observe that if you already have a Pre, you wouldn't consider a Pixi; it is considerably less capability in a slightly smaller device. Different from when I already had a Treo, and switched to a Centro; it was the same capability in a considerably smaller device. And isn't it interesting that the Pixi strikes everyone as feminine.
Linked just for the title: Grand Theft Koyaanisqatsi. Scenes from the game, although as Kottke notes not set to Philip Glass, although they should be :) Someone please remedy this immediately! (Someone will, I'm sure :) The game technology is quite impressive, particularly the shadows and clouds. The water is pretty excellent, too. One suggestion for the game designers: wind; trees and plants move, too.
Bram Cohen (author of Bittorrent and Python aficionado) comments on Google's Go programming language. Really interesting; I've ignored Go so far, but possibly I shouldn't. Google has the scale to make something like this happen.
ZooBorns of the day: Otter pups! WOW, cuteness exemplified...
