It's a Micro World after all is a blog dedicated to discussing pretty much whatever I feel like. When I delve into scientific matters it will primarily be discussing microbiology (agricultural, bioenergy, and environmental focus). Otherwise, I'll probably ramble on about sports and life.

Awesome Stuff
Wednesday, February 9, 2011

1. I love my AppleTV. For years I've wanted a home media center. After scrounging and saving (for about as long as I've been pining for it) I was finally able to put one together. Nothing too big (though a 42" television looks big unless it's side-by-side with a 50") or too fancy. I did promise myself I'd keep it all Panasonic so all the components would mesh together nicely, so the AppleTV is the exception. With that said however, it compliments the rest of the system. The sweet thing is, since all of my media is on my desktop and sorted (in a very anal-rententive manner) in iTunes, it was almost a no-brainer to go with the AppleTV (also looked at the WD TV Live Plus but it doesn't come standard with wireless). The wireless connection between the desktop in my home office, and the AppleTV in my living room is perfect for someone (i.e., me) who didn't want to run wires throughout the house. It doesn't currently have Hulu access, but that's about the only downside I've seen so far. Now that I've got my home media center, I can focus on the less important things ... like furniture.

2. Here Come the Mummies came out with a new album, Carnal Carnival. You got to check it out. If you don't want to buy without extensive listening. They have a free 8 song EP available for download.

3. Who knew that AOL still existed, let alone had the money to buy HuffPo?

4. A bit of lab etiquette ... if you are working with a collaborator keep your naming convention for your samples consistent. It's bad enough that you're working with multiple (over five) environments, with multiple sites (over ten) within those environments, and multiple temporal samplings (over four). What makes it ten times worse is when you hand me a spread sheet that has four different naming conventions for each site ... because you probably couldn't remember what you named the sites the last time you were there.This is not the way to make friends, or keep collaborators happy.

5. One would think that merely placing the camera on a headband and wearing it 24/7 would be easier than having a titanium plate inserted in ones head. But hey, what do I know about art?

6. A set of intriguing discoveries may loom on the horizon (or under it), now lets hope they don't contaminate it.

Why can't microsoft add something like appleTV to the xbox.  It seems like it'd be crazy easy.  We might even pay for it :P

Thanks for drinking the Apple kool aid.  I love the Apple TV, however downloading movies is a bit slow.  So I do it in advance on my Mac and stream from my iTunes but otherwise works like a charm.

I thought the X-Box already had that via media center? And most new TV's have something similar native.

AOL's been a tricky company to call since '02. They merged with Time Warner, became a media content player, got spun off, and now are scooping up content on the cheap. Can they repackage it all into something viable? Maybe. Maybe not. Wall Street and Madison Avenue have no idea how to read it. Which means investors are gonna start toeing the line soon trying to figure out which direction the wind will blow. And it's not like $315M is an obscenely large investment for AOL, comprising roughly a tenth of their 2010 revenue. I'd be more interested to see if they have a team working on the merger young enough to pull off the sell to Madison Avenue.

@Jade, I love watching movies at my house. They sound better here than in the theater and they're cheaper!

LOL. I have close to the biggest HDTV you can buy and a Bose surround sound system. For weeks I had to answer the questions "Isn't this amazing?" "How great is this picture?" "have you ever seen resolution this good?"

Me: "Dude, it's a TV. I don't need to see the pores on someone's face this close."

Jade, if you need someone to take that HDTV system (and the Bose speakers *swoon*) off of your hands, let me know. I can rent a truck.

LOLOL. Are you kidding? My man studies kung fu. He'll kung fu my ass. He is in love with the TV.
