Great expectations!

The new Stones album due out very soon can now be listened to in full length at Rollingstones.com: A Bigger Bang. After a quick listening session I have to say that at least 50% of the songs are really good or great. My favorites so far: a really funky "Rain Fall Down", bluesy "Back Of My Hand", "It Won't Take Long", "Laugh, I Nearly Died" - which reminds me of Tattoo You's "Heaven" and even Keith's "Infamy" is not bad. I am counting down the six days remaining before I can buy it.

I had never heard of this idiotic movement before reading the Wired article about Yomango yesterday. And then when walking home from work I found some evidence of it so I decided to bring my camera today and snap a picture of it. The text says "Pasa del consumismo absurdo" meaning "Ignore this riduculous consumerism".

Everybody's... (google) talking!

Yesterday evening I was all exited playing around with the new Google Desktop and adding some of the cool plug-ins and then this morning I heard the news about the new Google Talk. The first reactions seem to be that this new IM is nothing special and that more was expected from Google. The user interface sure looks good without all these ads and pop-ups that I remember from Yahoo IM, MSN Messenger and ICQ. Google Talk uses the open jabber standard so I guess a lot of those unhappy with its UI will use it through Trillian or Gaim. As for me I hope that over time Google's Gmail, Desktop, Talk, Blogger, Picasa and other utilities will become more and more integrated and finally offer me what I am really looking for (I will know when I see it!).

Finally Online!!!

After two month waiting I am finally online at home now. Spain really seems to be in the developing world when it comes to telecommunications. Let's see if my ISP will offer a good DSL service.

Just a small experiment

It cannot hurt to try this The J-Walk Blog Link Experiment, especially since I will finally get my Internet connection at home today and have to start thinking about getting to blog regularly again.
