Does technology simplify your life? – Caller ID Watches

Does technology simplify your life?

“‘On Thursday, Sony Ericsson and Fossil Inc. announced a line of bluetooth watches that vibrate when a call comes in on your cell phone, display the number of the caller, and allow you to press a button to send the call to voicemail. No more digging around in your pocket or purse before deciding if the call is important enough to interrupt a meeting.'”

Quote: Power of Two

You can’t love a crowd the same way you can love a person. And a crowd can’t love you the way a single person can love you. Intimacy doesn’t scale. Not really.
Intimacy is a one-on-one phenomenon.

I think it’s true !

My Kubuntu

My Kubuntu is up and running. Just I had to manually install few packages for Audio/video players.

Things I can do from Kubuntu:

  • Play VCD/DVD and many media formats( mp3,3gp etc )
  • Browse – I have Opera and Firefox
  • Lot of tools for programming
  • Fun games and utilties
  • Aplications for Image viewing and Editing ( Well, we can’t expect Photoshop )
  • Office Apps( This needs lot of improvement )
  • My bluetooth dongle is identified without installing extra software and I could tranfer data from my mobile.

What I miss:

  • Can’t play Age of Empires/Need for Speed underground
  • Still the fonts and other display is not as good as Windows
  • Can’t transfer data to/from my Creative Zen Touch

Ubuntu rocks!
