J.J. Abrams — as a guest on Jimmy Kimmel’s show — takes suggestions from the audience for the direction of the upcoming Episode VII. At least they all agree on Chewbacca and Leia.
The Telegraph reviews Dan Brown’s new novel. You have to read this.
They start filming the 40 minute episode in three weeks! I still remember the opening line of the first episode: “Hello, IT. Have you tried turning it off and on again?”.
It may be just an ad for the Audi S7 but it’s very well made with very clever dialogues.
Live long and prosper.
I’ m sure you once had a Nokia Phone with the infamous ‘Snake’ game in it. Have you ever beaten it? This 13 minutes GIF animation shows you how it’s done:
Of course, if you’re as impatient as I am, you can watch the accelerated (down to 2 minutes) version instead1:
- I dare you to stop watching it before it finishes. You know you can’t. ↩
I have a Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 50mm f/1.4G prime lens for sale. It comes in it’s original box and includes all it’s original accessories (lens hood, front and rear lens caps, soft pouch), plus an extra UV filter. You can check out its full specifications here or here.
It is a great lens, in mint condition and the reason I am selling it is that I haven’t used it for a long time as I find that it no longer suits my shooting style.
I’m selling it for Eur280. If you are interested, and in the Athens area (I prefer a face-to-face transaction, so that you can see the lens before you buy it) send me an email.
World Backup Day was on March, 31 (yesterday, as I write this).
Do you keep regular backups? If not, start now (here’s a guide to give you some ideas). If you do keep regular backups, good for you! But, have you ever tested that they work? Testing your backups is equally important. You don’t want to find out that something is wrong with them after a disaster, when you need them most. So, if you didn’t do any of the above yesterday, go do it now1!
- And set a reminder for next year on March, 31. ↩
Have you noticed that most weather forecast websites look like they were designed in 1998? If so, you should take a look at Forecast, a new weather service with the best user interface I have ever seen!
Update: If you view it on an iPhone, it loads as a *jaw-dropping* HTML5 web-app.
I just found out that, about two weeks ago, BBC Radio 4 has begun broadcasting an audio version of Neal Gaiman’s Neverwhere, starring the voices of actors such as James McAvoy, Natalie Dormer, David Harewood, Benedict Cumberbatch AND Christopher Lee!
Thankfully, for those of us not in the UK, BBC has made the episodes available both on their web site AND as a podcast. The only downside is that the podcast feed only contains the latest episode, so if you — like me — just found out about this, you have to listen to the fist 5 episodes on the web.
Have you tried listening to audiobooks before? It’s a good way to pass the time during a daily commute to work. Give it a try.
