It was announced today by HBO that GoT is renewed for a fourth season. So that’s nice. And I was right in my previous speculation about where some of the changes this season would be made. I’ll have to think about that some more.
Don’t decode this unless you have read the third book or you are happy to be spoiled! It contains speculation on some essential changes that we will see in the third season of the TV show.
So with the organised crime connection to the horse meat scandal why haven’t they told us the results of the tests for human DNA in those burgers and lasagne?
Got my new iMac yesterday evening and set about transferring my data from Time Machine and such.
Applecare and Thunderbolt to Firewire 800 adapter arrived separately.
Foam pads top and bottom.
Simply unfolds and lifts out.
And then some waiting.
Ordered new build-to-order iMac this morning. Delivery supposed to be 18th-21st December.
21.5 inch screen
NVIDIA GeForce GT 650M with 512MB
3.1GHz Quad-core Intel Core i7, Turbo Boost up to 3.9GHz
1TB Fusion Drive (combines 128GB of super fast flash storage with a traditional hard drive. )
Magic Trackpad, Keyboard, Thunderbolt <-> Firewire adaptor, Applecare.
So that should be handy.
I made $481.27 freelancing online this month. So that was interesting. I made more money from that than from my shareware release. I think most people who self-publish software (shareware, trial ware, App Store, MAS) are in the long tail. I have some ideas for software that can be written fairly quickly that might also actually sell. To get it on the MAS still requires me to pay another freelancer $300 or so to do a retina resolution icon set. So icon designers have a guaranteed income from app programmers.
It’s been a long time coming but it was inevitable.
It certainly makes sense to include tablets (iPads) in the totals for personal computers since that is exactly the role people are using them in. What makes less sense is not including those other devices running the same operating systems (iOS and Android) with smaller screens – smartphones and iPod touches.
I thought it was the best of the trilogy, albeit a bit too long for comfort in the cinema. They really need to bring back intermissions on these long films. It had a reasonably interesting female role for Anne Hathaway, a fair number of twists and turns that I didn’t see coming, and a bit of have your cake and eat it that it mostly got away with.
