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!

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...)

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 :)

Why Microsoft? Why?
I just installed the Windows SDK and it told me that the installation is not full unless I reboot. That was not a question but an information. But I could close the dialog by saying OK or cancel!?!
Ho crap! Would cancel ignore the info or would it cancel the installation? And would OK tell the machine I understand the message or force a reboot? I chose OK and without further ado Windows rebooted!! :-(
Really crap UX as usual!

The Atacama desert is a very beautiful place.
It's a great place to test a rover, and I am sure also to test my bicycle one day ;-)

ESA’s test rover has been fitted with scientific instruments and made its first tracks in the sands of Chile’s Atacama Desert. Meanwhile, team members have explored the area to select a suitable site for testing, flying a drone to produce an aerial map. Th...

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!!

From all to all java plug-ins...
Firefox 26 Beta add a "new" feature described as "All plug-ins, with the exception of recent Flash plug-ins, are defaulted to 'click to play'". This version is now out of beta, but the feature was changed to "All Java plug-ins are defaulted to 'click to play'".
A half step forward...

I have a dream...
...one day cars will be the exception!

PS: I really dislike being treated as third class citizen when I am on a bicycle...

Grrrr you can sometimes let your phone almost fully charge before going to bed and discover the next morning an almost empty battery...
And it was the whole night in airplane mode.
Today's culprit is Google Service. What were you doing last night?
