Over on Geek Entertainment TV are some of the top Quake 4 players: the girlz of destruction. I’m more partial to the interview Irina did with the guy who started Alive in Baghdad.
For those who don’t live in the United States this one by Ze Frank probably won’t make all that much sense. But, it’s a funny guide to surviving visits with family.
The tech blogosphere was getting boring for the past few minutes so Emre Sokullu and Richard MacManus saves us from the hell of boredom by talking about the Google OS.
I think they are both drinking better Merlot than I am. Can you send over a bottle?
Why would Google want the hell of doing an OS? They are having a much better time just selling ads on top. And they will continue to be successful at doing that, no matter what Bill Gates says.
The real Google OS, by the way, is what’s running on their datacenters. They have teams doing nothing but writing drivers for disk drives. Why? To make their server OS work better across thousands of servers.
If Google is going to sell an OS, it’ll be a server OS that’ll be a good hosting container for a ton of Web 2008-style services. Doing an OS for a laptop or a desktop? Please.
Got a dog? Or a cat? Hey, Printing for Less guys! (They let employees bring dogs, but not cats to work).
Then you’ll wanna watch Lunch Meet with the folks who do Dogster and Catster. Oh, and they are profitable! Take THAT Web 2.0 skeptics!
Remember the good old days when it used to take Google weeks to index sites? I do. Ahh, the good old days of 2000. Anyway, as richards tirade shows us Google is now building new indexes within two days of the events (I was #1 last night, tonight I’m #31).
This is Jason as we haven’t heard him in years.
Am I doing too much Merlot, or is he asking for a job?
I have a sneaking feeling Jason has a lot more up his sleeve than a mere job.
Hey, Jason, if you’re up in Half Moon Bay, I’d love to buy you a Mojito. Our guest room is open for you anytime too.
