Creative ideas for start-ups… maybe…

Michael Eisenberg is a well known VC partner (Benchmark Capital) and an avid blogger. In one of his recent posts, Michael refers to 8 different approaches to raising a start-up company, in the midst of an economic crisis. The full blog entry can be found at his blog, however, after reading it myself, I would […]

So long Fedora… Hello Mandriva PowerPack

For the past 3 years I’ve been a devoted CentOS/Fedora fan. I mean, while CentOS gave me a highly robust and stable server platform, Fedora enriched my desktop and allowed me to work seemlessly and easily. While others kept snering at me: “Fedora? Fedora? I use Ubuntu, I’m hard core Debian”, I kept to myself […]

Israel now officially speaks Arabic

Apparently, according to the BBC, the most spoken language in Israel is most probably Arabic. Well, at least judging from their website. I was browsing the web for some information about the “Doctor Who” TV series (if you have no idea what I’m talking about – shame on you!). As it is a BBC series, […]

So long NYC, Hello TLV

So, my trip to the US is finally over, and I’m currently sitting at the BA lounge in JFK, NYC. I have to admit, that compared to the BA lounges in LHR, the JFK lounge seems somewhat dull and disappointing. The time right now is 7am (US time), and apart from coffee, drinks and some […]

Goodbye PHX, Hello NYC (Astricon 2008)

It’s the 27th of September, and AstriCon 2008 is over. I have to say that I really enjoyed myself. Apart from the lectures that I attended, that had opened my eyes to some new areas of Asterisk (I’ll be needing to think about those), I’ve met some people and finally managed to achieve some of […]

Our body is so fragile

It always amazes me how fragile our body really is. For those of you who had met in person, you know that I’m a fairly bulky guy – which means that I’m slightly larger than most people. In any case, there is nothing more frustrating than throwing your back – it’s the most annoying thing […]

Mobile browsing – BlackBerry eat your heart out

Ok , so i’m still taken by my E90, but I can’t argue with the facts. Browsing the internet with the E90 is a treat. The automatic page adjusting and resizing, makes almost any web page readable, just like on a normal PC. The browser supports JavaScript, enabling AJAX based sites work just right. I […]

I finally purchased a Nokia E90

Ok, I admit it, I’m a techno/gadget freak. There is nothing more exelrating then purchasing a new gadget and getting to learn it. For me, the Nokia E90 is something I’ve wanted to buy for a long time, but was not available in Israel at shops. I have no idea why is that, but only […]

WordPress finally upgraded

Ok, after running on WordPress 2.3.1 for almost 6 months now, I finally upgraded to version 2.5.1.┬áIn addition, I’ve also modified the theme to be a bit more modern, as the old theme was a little too grey for my taste. If anyone experiences any issues, please report back.

Ballmer Omlet anyone?

Steve Ballmer, CEO of Microsoft, had been reported as egged by an Hungrian student, during a lecture at the Budapest University. Now, as much as I would have wanted to be there myself, I have to admit that egging him is somewhat childish, unless that would have been followed by a frying pan to match… […]
