Front End Developer Resume, An 11-pound Notebook, A 2-pound Netbook, and Internet 1996

“Front-End Developer” Resume – Awesome.

11 Pound, Two-Headed Laptop Rears Its Head(s) – Lenovo has released a massive laptop with two built-in screens (a 10.6-inch screen that slides out of a 17-inch screen). As a dual monitor user at home I have a tough time working at full capacity in coffee shops, but at 11 pounds I’d need to hit the weight room before I could lug this thing around town.

2.38 Pound, 10.2-inch Laptop – Netbooks had quite a year in 2008. Some say they’re a fad; other say they’re an alternative class of notebook and they have staying power. Bottom line: they’re cheap, light, and come with up to 6+ hours of battery life. Aside from the small screen and 95% keyboard, most of what I do these days when I’m on the road could be done on a Netbook. Imagine, a laptop you could open on an airplane and not hit the seatback in front of you.

A Look Back at the Internet ’96 – A short walk through the Internet Archive. Check out the awesome background on Pepsi.com. Makes Fresno Web Design look like something out of 37Signals.

JournalSpace Crashes; Out of Business Due to Lack of Backups – Another sad story. If you haven’t setup no-touch backups for your personal system, check out Mozy.

8 Core CPUs on The Horizon – Even with 2.3 billion transistors and 8 cores, Intel says they “will be able to maintain the power envelope of its current Core 2 processors.”

The iPhone as Web Server – I’m racking my brain…trying to figure out a use for this.

The iPhone web server has one calling. To piss off ATT Wireless! Cell phone providers billing schemes really annoy me. We have a chance for revenge! I say we start an iPhone based CDN! woo! People can go to the app store, download it for free, and we’ll pay them a cut of the revenues. Perfect business model! Revenge on evil telcos and consumers earning cash for doing nothing! Definitely needs to be a pyramid scheme though.
