Yeah, I know, it’s september 🙂 So what? i like to give myself time to choose. I also like to shop online, so I started visiting all the online shops I know.

The first one that caught my eye was fungift.ro. I aready knew that fungift had…funny stuff ( 😛 ), but some of the things I found were just crazy: a Santa pen or a wine bottle ornament. Too bad I’m broke… 😀

I’ll be back with more shops tomorrow.

Logo UrbeeKrogos Software (owned by DragoÅŸ Novac) has launched urbee, an interesting J2ME application. It brings a list of upcoming events on your mobile phone, using data from Metropotam. This means that, for now, only Bucharest events will be available.

Gadgets, Romana / 1 Comment

În mod excepţional, există şi o variantă în română, sub formă de comentariu aici.

I downloaded the latest release candidate… Unfortunately, I could install it ONLY in Safe Mode. And as usual, Microsoft Support was lacking (only available by phone and only in the USA…). Fortunately, Google is always around 😀
First impression:interesting design.
Second impression: I wand the menu meniu (done), and I want it ON TOP of the addressbar (I know, I’m old-fashioned :) ).
Third and last impression: I’m annoyed by the “Open new tab” mini-tab (although it’s pretty useful), I’m annoyed by the menus-displaying toolbar buttons (they take up too much space – they should dissapear instead of being grayed), I’m….too demanding? :P.
Conclusion: I’ll stick to Firefox…

Charles Hooper from news.com has a very interesting article about the new Boot Camp from Apple. IT’s an application that allows Mac users to run Windows on their machines. Charles pretends that it’s just a commercial trick from Apple, who hopes to attract Window users to their side of the computer world.
