I want to get a UMPC, I have my eyes pretty much set on the Fujitsu U1010 right now. It's a nice size.. I love the convertible clamshell form factor. I never really considered the HTC Shift because I didn't see anything special from it, other than the fact that it probably costs a bomb!

But recently a video review has surfaced and it revealed a very interesting feature, the HTC Shift has a Pocket PC side to it! It's a dual processor device, so you can either boot into Vista, or switch over to the ever ready Pocket PC OS. Cool!!!

Unfortunately... having a feature like this would just increase the price of the Shift EVEN MORE! I'm just gonna keep dreaming about the U1010 then.

This is why he is now locked in a crib instead of the bed.

Can't believe I missed this last week. 2 updates have been released for Windows Vista which you should probably install ASAP. The updates haven't been pushed to Windows Update yet so that's why you still don't see it in the update list. They are:-

  • Performance And Reliability Update :- Fixes some performances issues, most importantly on the list of fixes... When you copy or move a large file, the "estimated time remaining" takes a long time to be calculated and displayed. Oh THANK GOD!!! Installed and tried this already, seem to be doing it's job properly. But... on my PC a little QUIRK happened... EVERY account I had on the system seem to have been duplicated, so at first I had 2 accounts on my login screen but now I have 2 of EACH account. I think it has something to do with my fingerprint reader cause the additional accounts seem to be grouped under an Other Credentials button in the login screen. Not to mention in my users list on my PC it still just shows 2 users only. This quirk didn't happen on my colleague's PC which didn't have an additional form of login authentication, ie. A Fingerprint reader.
  • Compatibility And Reliability Update :- This seem to fix compatibility problems with other programs, haven't tried this yet. Can't say I've run into any of the problems listed though.

One of my new year's resolutions when I started the year was that I will not start 2008 saying I should have been a better father.

I've failed that resolution today, I was careless, while answering a phone I forgot about WZ and allowed him to fall down a flight of stairs.... in his WALKER! He seems to be ok, other than having a bruised cheek, and he seems to have a bruise on the side of his head as well (although I keep thinking that's a trick of the light) He doesn't seem to have suffered any broken bones, could still walk and crawl after the incident. Eat... sleep.. could still make logical choices, choosing a 360 controller over a chew toy... and then proceeded to chew on the controller.

I blame myself for allowing him to fall down the stairs, but I also blame the mofo who called me to delay a meeting which because I was rushing for I put WZ in the walker in the FIRST place!

Our local TV station, TV3 recently did a piece on the urban myth of notebook detectors, basically a device that's able to detect if you have a notebook in your car or not. A transcript of the segment is here, but it's in Bahasa Malaysia so if you're not from around here I guess it's gibberish to you. Read on for a quick look at what the article mentions.
