A whole mess of N800 / N810 news.

There is a whole mess of news related to my favorite internet tablet that has come out over the past few days.
Nokia N810 with WiMax
First off, there was the debut of the WiMax enabled N810 at CTIA 2008. Other then the addition of the WiMax radio, only the color of the standard N810 has changed. It is slightly darker now and I think it looks pretty good.

Forget talk radio and news shows. My top 10 list of useful podcasts and IPTV shows for techies.

I figured it was time to take a break from the tutorials for a moment and have some fun. Well, that’s not completely true. NPR is having one of their two week fund drives and I can’t personally stand to sit through that on the way to work. It would be different, if once you made your donation, you could some how stop hearing all the fund raising breaks. Something to work on.

Anyway, seeing I’m solely depending on the content on my iPod to entertain me during my commute, I thought I’d share my top ten favorite podcasts and IPTV shows with you.
Safety Tip: Only use the IPTV shows if you take the Bus.

The internet can be your best friend or your worst nightmare. Morons beware!!

This story comes to you from Philadelphia where Jesse McPherson spends his days as a front-end web developer, but in reality he claims to be a Rock Star. On March 12th, Jesse’s house was burglarized and his xbox 360, an old powerbook (which they grabbed the wrong charger for) and TV that was ripped off the wall were all stolen.

Having little faith in the local authorities to locate and recover his stuff, he took it upon himself to do his own detective work. He used google maps to locate the nearest pawn shop and contacted them about his missing items. The pawn shop owner remembered someone trying to sell a G4 powerbook without the charger and a dead battery (same as Jesse’s), but the shop’s owner wouldn’t buy it from him.

Luckily, this pawn shop had cameras and he let Jesse view them and take pictures of the suspect. After getting the photos, he contacted the detectives for his case but he waited around for 3+ hours and no one ever showed up. (I guess there must have been a buy 12 get one free donut sale going on) He waited about a week and still no response.
