Artificial Intelligence is here!

TypeAnalizer (found via Doc Searls ) has nailed my blog completely. It has classify this blog as ISTP (Introverted, Sensing, Thinking, Perceiving) that is Introverted Thinking with Extraverted Sensing. More concretely, it says I am "The Mechanic" characterized as:
The independent and problem-solving type. They are especially attuned to the demands of the moment are masters of responding to challenges that arise spontaneously. They generally prefer to think things out for themselves and often avoid inter-personal conflicts.

The Mechanics enjoy working together with other independent and highly skilled people and often like seek fun and action both in their work and personal life. They enjoy adventure and risk such as in driving race cars or working as policemen and firefighters.
I think that is absolutely on the spot!

People Are Fucking Boring

Apple pushes jailbreakers towards Windows.

Apple has become so stupid that it is making extreme efforts to not allow jailbreaking of the iPhone on the new Macbooks. This is stupid in so many levels. Imagine, for a ridiculous moment, that Apple succeeds and at some point jailbreaking is impossible, so unlocking is impossible. Leave aside the fact that neither jailbreaking, nor unlocking is illegal. If Apple succeeds it will be the only phone in the world people care about that can't be unlocked. That will do wonders for the sales, right? Couple that to the fact that, despite what Apple has touted, Blackberry is beating the crap out of Apple in Worldwide Market Share, and you see why the plot to increase the value of Apple stock will have to burst at some point.

Ferrari wins!

Why the hell is the Kindle great?

There are a few more Kindle users now and even Oprah has adopted it I am finding myself more and more often talking with other people, Kindle owners or not, about what makes the Kindle great.

To get it out of the way, the Kindle is great, but as this late review hints at, what makes the Kindle great is not the gadget part. As a gadget it has a lot of defects, it leaves you desiring so much more, stupefied about some design decisions and lack of a feature (or ten! ). No, as a gadget the Kindle is a failure. But there are three things the Kindle does great. First, you can read books on it. It is, after all, its main purpose, and when you are reading a book, the gadget doesn't exist. Second, it allows you to buy books. This gives you instant gratification, which I can't emphasized enough how great that is. Finally, it allows you to manage your book inventory in a very efficient way. Most readers fear being left cold without a good read. When you are on a trip or when you have to wait for your books to arrive. You want a pile a books. But the pile gets hard, you want to read the latest book, leaving some of your early purchases in the cold. Well, no more. If you want a book, and if it is available for the Kindle (a big if! ), then you can read it immediately and you don't have to buy it, until you want to read it. It's a great feeling.
