Amazon Wants Patent For Inserting Ads Into Books

karl3 learn to ignore ads (219 comments)

i don't know if i'm a medical phenomenon, but i've always been extremely good at ignoring adds. a couple of months ago, i ended up in a group discussing a mildly controversial billboard, and i was the only one that hasn't seen it. on my way home, i've noticed that same billboard was *virtually* ~5 meters away from my flat, so i must have passed by it dozens of times on way to my buss stop. you've already learned how to ignore lots of stuff (like your own smell or traffic noise), so learn how to ignore adds as well.

How Do You Sync & Manage Your Home Directories?

karl3 Re:moving online (421 comments)

i know, but i suppose none of the 3rd party services will be shut overnight, so i'll have time back my stuff up. the thing is, i don't like to carry stuff that don't fit in my pocket (for me, netbook is a couch accessory), and i pretty much always have an access to a pc. actually, i work more on other ppls computers than on mine... and i'm always forgetting to transfer everything i need to my phone + bluetooth is too slow for large presentations (especially when the other person has old phone with 1.x version).

karl3 moving online (421 comments)

i've tried many approaches - none worked. solution seems to be online. i've already moved my bookmarks to faviki, music to grooveshark, pics and vids to facebook, docs to to google documents. ... i only haven't figured out what to do with my films.
