Begriplig Svenska Fail

DN.se vid 14-tiden i dag:

Skärmdump från DN.se med det underskattade ordet eklatera.

Eller var det bara jag som inte visste vad eklatera betyder?

10 Ways to Tell if You’re a Photographer

Photodoto (which is a great photography blog, btw) has a great post with 10 ways to tell if you’re a photographer.

Although I don’t yet have a digital, I know I’ll be guilty of most of those points when I finally get one… 🙂 Apart from the one about the car… I don’t own a car.

Muchos Funny: BBC Mixup

The BBC made a bit of a mess (and a very funny story) when they got mixed up, and interviewed the wrong guy on the news. Here’s the full story for you, with a video clip of the broadcast.

Sony: Oh The Irony

Sony CD Walkman D-NE700

Found some gold material. The following is a translation of a paragraph in the manual for my Sony CD Walkman (D-NE700):

Audio CDs with Digital Rights Management Technology

This product has been manufactured for playback of discs which adhere to the Compact Disc (CD) standard. Recently, some record companies have started selling Audio CDs with digital rights management. Please note that these discs do not adhere to the CD standard, and therefore may not be playable on this product.

Does that mean I won’t be able to play back Sony’s own CDs on my Sony CD Walkman? Heh. Sony are so way off track they’ll need a fleet of GPS satellites to find their way back. Over the years they have made many good CD Walkmans (Walkmen?), and the one I’ve got now is actually superb. I can play mp3s until my ears bleed if I’d like to. (As long as I’ve got the AVLS turned off…) But now they’re just loosing touch with reality completely. My next portable player will be a DAP, and I can already promise you it will not be a Sony. As it is I can see no reason for anyone to get a Sony DAP. They are totally overpriced and – more importantly – they are limited in all kinds of ways. (And I doubt they’ll be adding Ogg anytime soon, too…)

No. I’d say that with time, Sony will realize that you don’t get any business if you keep trying to control your customers’ every move. The customers will go to the company that gives them what they want. At the moment Sony is giving them the exact opposite.

Funny

These. I’d say they are the first high-quality Firefox flash ads I’ve seen so far. Nothing previously has had that professional touch.
