Troubling End!

One of Microsoft’s finest techs was drafted and sent to boot camp. At the rifle range, he was given some instruction, a rifle and bullets.
He fired several shots at the target. The report came from the target area that all attempts had completely missed the target.
The tech looked at his rifle, and then at the target. He looked at the rifle again, and then at the target again.
He put his finger over the end of the rifle barrel and squeezed the trigger with his other hand.
The end of his finger was blown off, whereupon he yelled toward the target area, “It’s leaving here just fine, the trouble must be at your end!”

The Ring

Dave took Mary out for a romantic dinner where conversation turned to the subject of marriage. Dave had been saving for an engagement ring, but he was in graduate school and in dire need of a new computer.
Mary was understanding, telling Dave they had the rest of their lives to get engaged, so he should use his savings to buy a computer instead. During dessert, Dave suddenly reached into his pocket and pulled out an engagement ring.
Mary was stunned, but after she collected herself, she looked up and prompted, “Well, don`t you have something to ask me?”
Dave then got down on bended knee. “Honey,” he said, “will you buy me a new computer?”

Microsoft to sell Ad space in error messages

Microsoft announced that it is selling advertising space in the error messages that appear in Windows. Acknowledging for the first time that the average user of their operating system encounters error messages at least several times a day, Microsoft is trying to take financial advantage of the unavoidable opportunity to make an ad impression.
“We estimate that throughout the world at any given moment several million people are getting a “general protection fault” or “Illegal operation” warning. We will be able to generate significant revenue by including a short advertising message along with it,” said Microsoft marketing director.
The Justice Department immediately indicated that they intend to investigate whether Microsoft is gaining an unfair advantage in reaching the public with this advertising by virtue of its semi-monopolistic control over error messages.

Wii Breakages

The Nintendo Wii’s strap is connected to a motion sensitive remote which is used to control the on-screen action. Reports show that the wrist straps have been breaking during use, leading to the controller slipping out of hands, smashing TVs and windows.

Nintendo say that if use correctly there straps wont break but have also offered that they will replace all users straps for free if they are to break. To prevent this problem happening again Nintendo are releasing all new Wii’s with an “enhanced” strap that is less likely to break during use.

The console has been a massive hit for the company with more than 325,000 consoles sold in Europe in just two days, more than 600,000 sold in the US and more than 400,000 on launch day in Japan.

Nintendo have even left a list of the way to handle your Wii and how to wear the strap

  • Always wear the wrist strap while playing.
  • Keep a firm grip on the Wii Remote at all times.
  • Make sure people and objects are out of the range of movement before play begins.
  • Players should keep at least 1m (3 feet) from their televisions.
  • Players should dry their hands if they become sweaty or wet for any reason.
  • Do not use excessively rapid, violent or wide swinging motions during game play.

An A4 Sheet can hold upto 256GB of Data with the new ‘Rainbow Technology’

Data can be encoded into coloured geometric shapes and stored in dense patterns on paper.Files such as text, images, sounds and video clips are encoded in “rainbow format” as coloured circles, triangles, squares and so on, and printed as dense graphics on paper at a density of 2.7GB per square inch. The paper can then be read through a specially developed scanner and the contents decoded into their original digital format and viewed or played. The encoding and decoding processes have not been revealed’.Techworld.com
