MIT PESO

Posted by rom on July 20, 2005

If you don’t have anything to do this afternoon, please attend the launch of the MIT PESO. This is one initiative that is critical to the development of the nation. If the government is dilly-dallying to support high tech entrepreneurs, this programme definitely compensates for it.

Students, professors and professionals are all welcome to attend.

Join na!

New Digital Camera

Posted by rom on July 17, 2005

I promised myself that I will not buy another digital camera until I get to find more time to go out and take photos. Right now, I am swamped with work and my idea of leisure seems to be in front of my powerbook typing away! Circumstances, however, dictated that I buy another digital camera but not the one that I’m eyeing but a different kind.

I bought this one. Apologies to those who are viewing my blog using portable devices since the site requires Flash. Anyway, I bought this digital camera – comes with 32MB of internal memory and a 64MB Sony Memory Stick Duo. I know, I know – I never endorse Sony Memory sticks because it is more expensive compared to other flash-based storage formats and also only works on Sony products! Unfortunately, I have no choice and I think that I will be getting a 1GB version, too! *tsk* *tsk* Will just wait for a friend to come home from the US – much cheaper there than here. Come to think of it, it will come in handy when I get my PSP!!! *Christmas wish list*

My new digital camera connects to my powerbook wirelessly via Bluetooth! Cool, huh? Yes, I can transfer images and videos between the two devices. I can also do it via USB whilst charging the camera but who wants to bring cables anyway?! 😛

Here’s a crop of a photo taken using the new camera.

Podcasting

Posted by rom on July 15, 2005

I am currently conducting an experiment by having my students do podcasting instead of the usual slides in presenting their projects. I am hoping that the resulting podcasts will not be boring and I do hope that the students enjoy doing it.

Speaking of podcasts, I did not know that Apple’s iTunes now carry my podcasts! Yes, issue 7 and 8 are available for download. I have received a number of e-mail already asking me when the next issue will come out. I might just release another one in the very near future.

Stay tuned.
