Some Apple tablet features

Jason Calacanis apparently had access to the Apple table 10 days ago. If you take a look at his status update feed on twiter, you find really interesting reports about the table, namely:

It will have an "ebook reader" mode that saves a lot of battery time; Battery life for gaming/wifi is around 2/3 hours; He hints that people will be able to play first person shooters on this thing, the specs must be awesome; Will have 2 cameras. One that shoots what is in front of you, another shoots you; Solar power pad in the back for recharging; OLED screen; At&T AND Verizon contracts available, probably; Thumbpads on each side for gestures. Reads fingerprints for security; Builtin HDTV tuner; The price will be 599, 699 and 799 depending on size and memory;

If his tweets are accurate, then we have an awesome device coming up indeed :)

Computers and jumps

I've been loving my Mac Book Pro so far. OSX is, without a doubt, one of the most brilliant pieces of software engineering I have ever encountered; I almost feel sorry for not "going mac" earlier in my life.

But, no matter how good it is, the only thing that has been going constantly through my mind lately is the thought of jumping again. I have been doing some spare time math, figuring out how much time one can spend in free fall (with and without a winged suit). I think once I do the AFF course (Accelerated Free Fall) I will be addicted for good :D
