briefly noted

I'm on my way out for a long meeting, so here's a little guerilla writing.

google forever

Just downloaded the Google Desktop Search. Now my search is integrated, going through Outlook, Powerpoint, Excel and everywhere else. It takes a while to index all my stuff, so I'm leaving my laptop at the office and going only with my Xda II.

The other application I'd like, but cannot have due to the system requirements, is Google Earth. This broadband app let's give you Big Brother OMAC satellite views of cities of the earth. You can pretend to be a covert black ops Warren Ellis team member getting ready for some nasty things.

horny pinoys

One of our esteemed Congressmen is shocked at the number of Filipinos registered over at Adult Friendfiner, The World's Largest Sex & Swinger Personals site. According to the Philippine Star today, over 200,000 Pinoys are on the prowl. The official (I forgot his name, sorry) thinks that certain cybercafes are actually cybersex peddlers in cyberdisguise.

Good grief, sir. With a population of over 80 million, you'd think it was obvious we like a little roll in the hay. We also appropiate technology to do what we want. And as for the cybersex-peddling cybercafes in cyberdisguise, um, any person with access to a computer with an internet connection can go to the site and register.

online gaming

There are around 3 million Filipino online gamers exploring the virtual worlds. This number (and market) is expected to grow by 18% over the next four years.

And to think I sold my shares in Netopia. Gah.
