tiny url preview

My favourite web service TinyURL has a new “preview” feature: simple convert any URL that looks like http://tinyurl.com/abcde to http://preview.tinyurl.com/abcde and it takes you to a page that shows you what link it’s pointing to, instead of auto-redirecting. A great idea for links from people you don’t trust!

famous talkers

The guy behind the iPod, Tony Fadell was here at the CS building to give a talk (with good pizza afterwards, which was the whole point of going there). Things to note: They’ve sold over Eighty Seven Million of those, with over 100,000 of them being manufactured a day. He also passed around his new iPod shuffle for people to see, which is so crazy tiny that it’s not funny — you could actually swallow it.

Next talk to note: on November 16th; is Orkut Büyükkökten, the creator of Orkut.

eery aptness

Guidelines for Platonic Friendship :

1. No hugging for greetings or salutations. Hugging is only allowed for personal tragedies or blessed events when the emotional significance of the situation blocks out the knowledge that your boobies are pressing against me. We have hands; lets shake them.
