Post CES and MacWorld Blues

Now that CES and MacWorld are over, it’s time to look back.

CES is still a much larger event and yet it was eclipsed by Steve Jobs’ MacWorld Keynote. Once again, Apple stole CES’ thunder. I am still processing and formulating the information overloads from CES and MacWorld.

Let’s see.

MacWorld

  • Apple iPhone, AppleTV, and the new Airport Extreme base station. No real news about Mac OS X, Macs, and other softwares from Apple.
  • ModBook – A tablet Mac.
  • No GPS support on Mac OS X from Garmin
  • …to becontinued

CES

  • XBox 360 HD video and larger hard drive.
  • Something about Windows Vista and its variants.
  • Sling Media’s SlingCatcher.
  • Tons of other products, to be added later.

This will take a while for me to write something interesting regarding CES and MacWorld.

Rants: Annoying Blog Entries

I use the “tag-surfer” feature on WordPress from time to time. It’s a great feature for finding out other blogs on WordPress.com based on keywords/tags. I surf a few tags and one of them is “tech”. In general I like reading other people’s opinions, and some other informations (links to interesting news, announcements, etc).

I easily get annoyed by three types of blog entries:

  1. SPAM BLOG
    No explanations needed.
  2. Flamebaits
    There are entries filled with FUD (Fear, Uncertainty, and Doubts), trolls, “controversial” contents, etc. They are just looking for attentions and page-hits Most of the time I’d get over it cause they are pointless and useless, just like the tabloid journalism.
  3. Unoriginal, Plagiaristic, Annoying, Stupid, Stolen blogs
    OK, OK! This is a rant, so nevermind the attempt to spell out Up Ass blogs.
    Anyway, there are entries which are basically a carbon copy of Digg.com, Slashdot.org, etc.
    Even better, a lot of time those entries aren’t even well thought out, because these so called “bloggers” just copied and paste the title and the entry without even reading the article. The best part is that they didn’t even read the articles or notice if they’re just fake news.
    Please cancel your WordPress blog and stop blogging forever! At least, learn how not to steal other people’s contents.

Anyway, this is a rant!
