Various types of funny things I catched up somewhere in the net or in the real world!

Cute little Kitten VS Apple MacBook!

Now, tell me if this isn’t cute:


I was playing on youtube when I saw this video! It’s crazy, incredible, I love this :D

You should all know that I’m a Mac fan (I only use Macs, and I install on each of them Ubuntu too :D ) so this video kinda makes me suffer too :\

That’s just because I can’t imagine how can someone let his cat do THIS to a wonderful MacBook!! Argh!! He he. Well, in the page of the video there are also really stupid minions, call them trolls if you like, saying things like: “Macs are only good for your cat to play with them, cause they are crap” and so on..

I really ask myself: are they actually so stupid and ignorant as they look or do they just act, paid by Redmond? Well, in both cases, it’s really sad that such arrogant ignorant kiddies exist in this world… they say that the world is nice because it’s full of different kind of things… somethings shouldn’t just exist at all, like this kind of people.

If you want to have a know-why of some reasons for this comment I gave here, read THIS article I wrote about Vista and this Review of Ubuntu on a MacBook!

As for the kitten, poor Mac (This kind of computers are not only the greatest computers on earth, they also are something really precious, like gems), but the pet is something tooooo much lovable :D

Free Software Sticker Book? Wow!

Hallo people, I was casually surfing the net and look at what I found!!!

free software book

Now, isn’t this GREAT? Download it, Free Software Sticker Book is a pdf file with a very high resolution and guess what it contains? loads of Linux and GNU related stickers for every taste :D

This is a wonderful tool for you, for me and for my laptop, for everyone indeed! The art of the sticker is great in almost every case and this book is periodically updated with new art! You can contribute it for free emailing it at the devels of this piece of artwork :D

Imagine to print one of those wonderful Debian or Ubuntu stickers on a photographic high resolution sticky paper and then remove your windows logo from the non dell non apple laptop and substitute it with a wonderful logo from this Book! This is not only a wonderful eyecandy for your computer, it is also a very useful way to help spreading Linux around your friends and with all the people looking at your laptop in general!

I don’t know you, but when I see a strange logo on another one’s laptop I always tend to try and look what logo is that… cause there are very few of those logos on PCs these days: winzoz, intel inside, nvidia, ati, what else? Now there are plenty more!

And in this book you’ll also find bigger logos with many others finalities, such as, stick one on your car ;)

Download and use it, people! I’ll stick one on this page now :D here I go:

Ubuntu VS OSX in Veronica Mars… did you notice?

Well, Veronica Mars has been one of my prefered shows last year. I saw every season transmitted in Italy and I’ve been loving her and the misteries of that TV show.

Something that is surely not a mistery to anyone is that Veronica Mars may have received an enormous monetary sponsor by Apple. In Veronica Mars every cool character, every protagonist, is someone who uses a Mac. There are MacBook Pros everywhere, Imacs and so on all over the serie. If someone is a shy character, then be sure he uses a PC. If someone is cool, he uses an Apple computer. Thy appear everywhere in the serie. Guess how much Apple actually paid for this massive ad and by the way, almost any America TV Show or Holliwood Movie actually is full of Apple computer everywhere. No surprire. They are the cooler, the most advanced, they make they’re show with the awesome design… they are the best and most advanced peace of hardware in what the computer world has to offer, and that’s for sure.

But in Veronica Mars there’s a part of the show where we can listen to a conversation between a girl, one of Veronica’s best friends, and an almost unknown guy. They’re conversation is basically centered on which Operative system is better, Ubuntu Linux or Mac OSX. None of the two is a winner in this conversation and that’s a very good thing. First because they mentioned Ubuntu in a TV Show, one so popular… and second because they didn’t conclude that OSX is better. Each of the guys just points out why he uses he’s OS. And that’s all. The boy whants the girl to try Ubuntu, she is happy with OSX and here’s the question…

I don’t remember the name of the girl but she was a computer expert, an hacker, a very skilled one, in the TV Show….

Update: BBQChips gently pointed out in a comment the name of the girl I was talking about is Cindy Mackenzie, often refered to as impl Mac…. is it a casualty that her name is that of the Apple computer ;D ?? I don’t think so.. ;P

so how came she uses the most userfriendly OS out there and not a geek made and made for geeks OS such as Linux? Beside the fact that Ubuntu is for human beeings and it is very user friendly, there’s no doubt that ubuntu Linux is a better hacking platform than OSX. IT has much more programs, tools and so on to hack someone else computer, to access and violate nets and so on… and in the movie this girl actually does all this sort of things…. so why does she use OSX? And where the hell did she find the right programs and tools to hack things that well in OSX? Sure OSX is a BSD based system, that is a cousin of Linux… But Linux is a better hacking platform for sure…

So tell me girl…. why don’t you try Ubuntu? I can only imagine what sort of things you would be doing with it if you are a genious hacker with OSX :D !

Windows problems in Milano Linate Airport…

Well, the pictures kinda explain everything I guess…


Linate error 02Linate error 01

Uhm… see something weird on the screen or is it me? 

I was taking my plain from Milano Linate’s Airport, I had to go to Brindisi in Puglia and… woa-hoa! What do I see here???

Incredible but true. In a very prestigious Italian Airport, here’s a giant screen with an illustrated animation but… something’s wrong! See, the Windows System just got a problem! There’s the security log in pop-up displayed and even the Task Bar is visible! Really nice to see how Windows can create problems at every level of use :)

Dear Milano Linate administrators, why not switching to a more solid platform? Let’s see… Linux?

Well but after all we can see that even on this airport and in this particular computer, they use Opensource software after all! And here it goes Firefox, perfectly visible on the taskbar!

Linate error 03

A zoom on the taskbar reveals the presence of the Firefox Web Browser! LOL… :D

What can I say? It’s really shameful and ridiculous but at least they had enough brain to use the burning fox… too bad they didn’t use a Linux system instead of that crappy and buggy Windows OS…
