Finally Redmond tried Linux Terminals and understood how bad the Command Line was on Windows!! http://withinrafael.com/new-experimental-console-features-in-windows-threshold/ only 14 years too late (at least!)
But it's never late to catch up!

Great tool to build custom maps (and using OpenStreetMap behind): http://umap.openstreetmap.fr/en/

Holidays with bikes and kids, is it possible?
With a bit of patience and ingenuity, yes :-)
and yes we do not have a Fiat 500, so that was not that difficult ;-)
Note: the trunk is fully filled up, not a space left of a single Duplo guy more! ;-)

Bon une news revue par Martin Vidberg et qui aura le mérite de m'avoir fait sourire !
Quand à la "polémique", entre gens sérieux elle n'a pas lieu d'être. Copé est vraiment un "fouille merde" il ferait mieux de se taire quand il faut.

Bizarre, ça sonne un peu comme un problème d'alimentation au niveau de tes ports USB :-/ Je sais qu'il y avait des laptops un peu sensibles là dessus dans le temps, mais ça ne devrait plus exister, enfin j'imagine :-/

(par contre effectivement, c'est un peu pénible que Windows réinstalle le driver quand tu branches le périphérique sur un autre port. Mais sur un PC normal, c'est à peu près transparent. Donc quand il n'y a pas de problème, tu ne t'en rends pas compte...)

Argh... just plugged in a new USB3 HDD to Windows 7 at work, and it is taking longer for Windows to install the driver and let me access it than it would have take me to create a new directory and mount the disk in the terminal on Linux!
Incredible!!

I guess that those who don't have a watch, won't see the point of a "smartwatch", they just don't need it because they have a phone. While those who own a watch are looking after the mechanics or because it is jewelry.
Apple has probably more chances in the latter category, but who will pay for a gold watch that would be obsolete (and hugly) in 3 years time?
It is also a bit too expensive for just a fitness tracker, which by the way I hardly see the point of!
Back in March I wrote a Plus report about The Trends That Form Wearables, and after watching Apple's Keynote this week, I still don't see any change from what I wrote back then.

Super les Impôts !!
"Vous ne pouvez pas installer notre application car vous n'êtes pas en France"
Bravo, et quand on doit déclarer ses impôts en France mais que l'on est à l'étranger, on fait comment alors ?!?
Notez cher lecteur que je n'ai pas reçu de déclaration papier à remplir... (soupir)

Hooray! I got both the mouse and keyboard working! Gosh Microsoft you ought to make automatic USB driver installation much more robust! 30 min to have a working mouse and keyboard, this is not acceptable!

Windows 9 should not address in priority the look and feel or if we should have a "start" button or not on the desktop interface.
No Windows 9 should get a proper and working USB stack!! It's 2014 and it is a 18 years old technology, come on Microsoft you can do it!!!

PS: I was planning on working from home this afternoon, but I am still hoping to get my "USB mouse" (yes you read it correctly, my mouse) working! No it is not a fancy mouse, it is the dumbest Logitech mouse they have: 2 buttons and a wheel! What is so difficult about this??
O man o man!

PS2: I writing this from my Mac while waiting for the PC to reboot :´-(

The new trend in video is to take a camera capable of high-speed recording (GoPro, iPhone) and point it out the window of a moving object. 

The result is a very serene from of motion art, which is quite fascinating to watch. The video below is just one of the many examples, which is part of a longer series that you can see here: http://vimeo.com/83663312

Here is another one from Jerusalem (on a snowy day): Jaffa to Davidka

One thing that struck me though, was to look at the expression on people faces. I would almost call it zombie like. We really need to design a better world than one where people are just waiting to get on some form of public transportation on their way to their boring job :)
