Hibi no Neiro - Sour (Music Video)

"This music video was shot for Sour's 'Hibi no Neiro' (Tone of everyday) from their first mini album 'Water Flavor EP'. The cast were selected from the actual Sour fan base, from many countries around the world. Each person and scene was filmed purely via webcam.

Director: Masashi Kawamura + Hal Kirkland + Magico Nakamura + Masayoshi Nakamura"

 I've seen some really cool videos in my life, but this, by far, has got to be one of the coolest ones I have ever seen! Everything seems to just flow perfectly, and these people have never even met or been in the same room as each other.

T-Mobile G1 Tethering To My Macbook Pro & iPod Touch

What's up guys, Byron here once again. I know you guys have got to be tired of seeing me by now but I got another video. I recently rooted my T-Mobile G1. Rooting is similar to Jailbreaking in the sense that it gives the user priviledge to run apps that aren't approved by google/t-mobile. Right at the top of the list of unapproved apps is any App that allows you to tether your 3g service. In this video I demonstrate my G1 tethering to both my Macbook Pro & iPod Touch. Hope you guys enjoy!

Google Chrome OS

OK! So, you may or may not know Google are creating their own Operating System called 'Google Chrome OS.' The thing i want to know is, is this a good thing? or is this a bad thing?

In my eyes and the eyes of many other people, Google own too much of the Internet market share. They own some of the best and biggest websites on the web today. These include: Google.com, Google Mail, Google Docks etc and yes, Our all beloved 'YouTube.' People have mixed takes on weather they are doing a good job or not with YouTube but that's a different post, and also Googles latest addition to this is Google Chrome.

So, yeah! They have the top sites on the web, A web browser of their own and now they want there own OS. I don't know weather to laugh or cry.

While the new OS by Google 'Google Chrome OS' will not be a match for Windows or OS X now, in a few years they could own a few percentage of the OS market share. Now, that may not look or seem like allot but to Apple and Microsoft but more competition from a company as big as Google could be really bad in the few years to come.

Now i want to know, What's your takes on Google and what their doing. Personally i don't like it. But thats just one boys opinion.

What’s So Bad About The Ad? Get A Mac Ads vs Laptop Hunters Ads, Why It All Evens Out.

 

The one thing that really bothers me about advertising is that most of the time all of the time they aren’t true. One thing that bothers me even more, is that people go out and criticize the ads, my self included. It’s human nature, that’s for sure, to critique.

Perhaps one of the most common advertisements you could see people criticizing are the Laptop Hunters ads by Microsoft, which aim at people looking to buy a laptop within a certain price range, and the Get a Mac ads by Apple, which are aimed at PC users who are frustrated with their computer.

myself, have even criticized the Laptop Hunters ads, along with several other YouTubers, including thecreativeone and cockyjeremy. The reason for criticizing the ads is quite simple, we are the opposing team, or side. The PC users criticize our ads, therefore we criticize their ads.

But that’s not the only reason. We, as humans, have the logic to know that ads are there to promote the opposing “faction” and we see it as “cheap”, or as a lie. For instance, the Get A Mac ads by Apple usually summarize PCs by associating them with viruses, sluggish performance, and more for the business people.Whereas Microsoft’s Laptop Hunters ads will display Macs as too expensive.

But it all evens out.

No matter what side you are on, you are going to have to accept the truth and realize that all ads are biased and completely untrue, in a sense.

It just depends on what side you’re on.
