500,000+ visitors and counting.

iThink that is the mark of a good blog. A blog iSimply started as a response to a situation… it has spawned so much more and all of it for no cost to me at all. Except my time, energy and combination of the two to make the RSS subscribers happy. And speaking of happy, iAm officially happy to have reached 500,000 visitors to the web pages of Thunk Different.

Thank you readers, WordPress, Apple, the Wall Street Journal, IBM, and everyone else who has published my work and made this possible. iAm humbled, iThunk none of this was possible and wouldn’t have been with out the web & the people the make it possible… you. 😉


Should iStart a Facebook blog or MySpace Blog? Start a WordPress blog.

October 11, 2007

Where to start your blog? Facebook? MySpace? A YouTube Video Blog? Hells no. WordPress baby. There is much more functionality on having a wordpress.org selfgodzilla hosted blog, but WordPress.com is truly a great system. AND, unlike blogger, vox, typepad, etc. WordPress is open source. Just like parts of Leopard. So get wth the program and lets make the EFF, W3c, and that important committee that sets internet standards happy and keep it fresh, clean, and open source. Self-less WordPress plug, go go godzilla!

How tall is Godzilla?

Where does he go after a fight?

Why does he fight?

Has he been to France?

Is Godzilla really a male, can a god be male?

All this and more, beginning here. Godzilla’s favorite weblog, just follow the rabbit.

New iMac Benchmarks: Santa Rosa Chipset Speed Tests. 24″models

August 13, 2007

primate labs results24 inch iMac Performance via Primate Labs!

August 9th, 2007 Steve Jobs announced new iMacs on Tuesday and while I’m not sure Iimac speed test like the new enclosure, I do like the other improvements that come with the new iMacs like faster processors, more hard drive space, and the Santa Rosa chipset.

I thought I’d compare the performance of the latest 24-inch iMac against the previous generation of 24-inch iMacs using Geekbench 2. While I don’t have any results for the 24-inch iMac with the Core 2 Extreme processor right now, I’ll update this article once I receive results for the Core 2 Extreme processor.

Setup

  • iMac (24-inch Mid 2007)
    • Intel Core 2 Duo @ 2.40GHz
    • 2.00 GB 667 MHz DDR2 SDRAM
    • Mac OS X 10.4.10 (Build 8R4031)
  • iMac (24-inch)
    • Intel Core 2 Duo @ 2.33GHz
    • 2.00 GB 667 MHz DDR2 SDRAM
    • Mac OS X 10.4.10 (Build 8R2218)
  • iMac (24-inch)
    • Intel Core 2 Duo @ 2.16GHz
    • 2.00 GB 667 MHz DDR2 SDRAM
    • Mac OS X 10.4.10 (Build 8R2218)

Primate Labs is reporting the baseline score, rather than the raw score, for each benchmark (where a score of 1000 is the score a Power Mac G5 1.6GHz would receive). Higher is better.

Web 2.0 Video: “The Machine is Us/ing Us.” Interview Question.

August 12, 2007

Please take a second to check out this video, I have contacted an attached author, Michael Bianchi, regarding this production about global communications and the project itself. Here is a quote from Michael whose video is featured in the project…

What do you mean by “communication” ? Are you talking about the daily emails that i’m receiving? Are you asking me if this particular video , “the machine is us/ing us” brought me new & important contacts?…

If so , I have no idea. my youtube channel has a total of aprox + 4700 members. I’ve been contacted by film festivals , tv networks , fans , haters , musicians , producers etc…But many important opportunities never came to fruition because I’m located in Paris. & I’m contacted by americans (80% of the time).

One of my videos , titled “youtubers” was screened at a short film festival….and apart from that , I’m currently working on my very first fianced short film project.”

So there you have it.


Dear Real Steve Jobs… Thank you for iLife ’08.

August 8, 2007

red buttons Dear Real Steve Jobs,

Thank you. The iLife ’08 released today looks to be the most revolutionary media software package on earth. The iMacs… incredible, .Mac – Thank god, Numbers – expected, but thanks. All is all, iLife ’08 fills in the gaps that the Leopard keynote was missing, and then some. iMovie… who is that guy who simply came up with this idea, the idea that changed media forever? I want to buy him a gift on Facebook, and then buy him a real one, doesn’t matter what it is, a beer, candy, a rainbow, whatever he wants. He deserves it. He deserves to go on more vacations. Send him to india, the pyramids, the wall, stonehenge. I’m interested to see what he comes up with. iThink we all are.
