Samsonite introduces “the NaN collection” luggages

Samsonite, the world’s renowned brand name for luggages and travel bags, has made a step further to attract geeks, hackers, and the like by introducing the NaN collection luggages, which is now generally perceived by business insiders to be the next bold move of Samsonite since their launch of the Black Label and Samsonite by Starck series, both of which are very successful and have once again made Samsonite to be one of the most fashionable luggage manufacturers in the world.

NaN, which means Not a Number, is a value or symbol used by the internal of computers to indicate the result of an operation on invalid input operands, such as the calculation of the square root of a negative number. The reason why Samsonite picks this obscure acronym for their latest edition of luggages is still unknown, and we are also unable to find any data or financial figures on their website to support their decision for such a niche market. Our informal phone survey shows that most geeks will prefer this or this rather than a clumsy luggage that will never have enough compartments to hold all of their gadgets anyway.

iPhone so sexy

10 days have already past since 2007, and Apple, Inc today gives me an idea for my new year resolution, to get an iPhone this year.

Am I too materialistic? No, I just love good design and appreciate their attention to details. Take a look at their demos and you’ll also wonder why traditional mobile phone company can’t make a phone that’s as easy to use as Apple’s. Be creative.

QR code WordPress plugin

I used to show QR codes in my old theme (not in the current theme as they don’t blend very well) and my friends think that’s intriguing, so I had been working on releasing a WordPress plugin to do that for quite some time. It’s not difficult because WordPress documentation is quite clear, and I’ve finally brushed up the code and released it under an open source license. If you want to get your hands dirty to embed some wierd codes in your blog to scare your visitors away, or you want to show off your technical savviness, you have come to the right place. Go to this page for downloads and instructions.

vi search

visearch

Creators of any website that resembles my homepage must be vi-addicted. *grin*

The author is crazy enough to implement hjkl keystrokes for movement in the search results, i for insert, commands like :q and :help for quit and help messages, etc. There is also a status bar at the bottom that looks exactly like a normal vim. Uber-cool.
