The price of an iphone? June 29, 2007

Filed under: Uncategorized — eo @ 10:42 pm

If you want to buy an iphone, you might be interested in how much is iphone. Well, the pris (the cost) of an iphone is $599.

Strange, huh? Why not $600. Why not $599.99. Or maybe $597. That’s very interesting. I think apple would get the same amount of purchases if it was $600. Or not? Would it drop? D&D’s interested in this whole pricing idea.


Virtual dissection

Filed under: Educational — eo @ 10:35 pm

Dissection is the process of disassembling and observing something to determine its internal structure and as an aid to discerning the function and relationships of its components. It may refer also to some spontaneous natural process of dissasembly as in aortic dissection. (Wikipedia says so).

But how can it be virtual? Well, simply. Check out this example of virtual cat dissection or this one on virtual frog dissection. That’s it. Don’t do it IRL.

Is NewCo worth $1,000,000,000? June 28, 2007

Filed under: Uncategorized — eo @ 10:22 pm

There is an article of NewCo claiming they are worth a billion dollars.

They are in a video market like YouTube.  YouTube was sold for 1.65 * 10*10*10*10*10*10*10*10*10 US dollars. Are NewCo worth that much? I doubt that.

However, I was originally tending to write about something else too. When YouTube got sold to Google, I saw an article writing about how people who had a few shares of YouTube (like the guy who works at the reception desk there) becoming millionaires. That’s a hell of an interesting idea. I wonder if that was really so. 🙂

And no, NewCo reception-guy, you’re not getting that much. Yet.


A pan-African state! Wouldn’t that be cool?

Filed under: Uncategorized — eo @ 9:37 pm

I missed it. Gaddafi urges a pan-African state. Meaning, uniting all the countries. Like, the United States of Africa. Wouldn’t that be cool?

Wondering whether that could help Africa economicaly. I think the idea is well worth some thinking.

Of course, it’s not gonna happen. Not in this century. But still, what an interesting idea.

Read the full article on BBC or something.

I’m so much NOT into gaming so I wouldn’t really know what to write about it. Anyway, this violent perversive game called GTA is soon to have another release. I mean, GTA 4 this time.

So, Grand Theft Auto 4. What will it be? I don’t know. But there are some analysis of the trailer.
