Upon replying to a YouTube message today, here’s what I was greeted with:
500 Internal Server Error
Sorry, something went wrong.
A team of highly trained monkeys has been dispatched to deal with this situation. In any case, please report this incident to customer service.
At least the folks at YouTube have a sense of humour!

While there are many companies out there offering to test your internet’s connection speed, some will even charge you a subscription fee for a simple Download and Upload rate.
This is where Speedtest.net really stands out. It’s FREE and it has an outstanding graphical user interface that overlays your location and that of its servers on a map.
After removing the invisible shield screen protector on my iPod, I applied the full body shield which covers just under 100% of the iPod’s surface. Once again, I’ve been very impressed with the results!
“Each component is a modular and shaped so that it cannot be inserted into the wrong place. A number system was also developed to replace confusing specifications that are present on today’s software.”
We’ll have to wait and see whether Dell will bring out the XCS anytime soon. Or maybe Apple will beat them to it by introducing this modular concept in the yet to be announced Intel Power Mac replacement.

A few weeks back, I got an invisible shield for my iPod’s screen. I was so satisfied with it that I decided to go for a full body shield for my iPod.
Now that my all new full body shield is here, just how easy will it be to remove the old screen shield so that I can put on the new one? According to the FAQ on ShieldZone’s website,
Q: How do I remove the invisibleSHIELD if I need to?
A: Removing the invisibleSHIELD from your electronic device is easier than it may seem. It is much like peeling off a sticker. You will want to start at one corner and slowly peel back small pieces at a time until the invisibleSHIELD has completely been removed from off of your device.
Is a material as tough as the invisible shield (which was originally designed to protect the edges of military helicopter blades) as easy to remove as ShieldZone claims? Let’s find out!

Ex Sony technician, Kouzi Ichigaya has come up with a simple idea to keep cool this summer: The USB Air Conditioned Shirt. It’s powered either by USB or AA batteries or through your car’s cigarette lighter.
Somewhat to my disappointment however, it’s not exactly air-conditioned. The shirt simply features two fans on each side of the waist which blow air inside the shirt. This leads to evaporative cooling by vapourising sweat without the use of any heat pumps as is the case in air conditioners. It’s nevertheless a cool idea, but to be fair, I think it ought to be called the air-cooled shirt.

During my cyber-travels today I came across this animation from hitachi that attempts to explain perpendicular technology in hard drives in a very interesting and lively way. Thought I’d share the video.
If you enjoyed the “Go Perpendicular” animation, then, read on, another educational video from Hitachi after the jump.
Following some research funded by NIST (National Institute of Standards and Technology) at Seagate, it was found that nanotubes that leak a lubricant vapour could lead to 10x bigger capacity hard drives!
