Hmm, a technology blog? What to pick? What to talk about?
I think I might talk about IMDB. Personally, I LOVE the Internet Movie Database. I get lost in it. All I want to do is find out who Joe Bloggs was and, after 3 hours of clicking on different names and going ‘oh, he was in THAT’, I realise it’s possibly time to go back to what I was originally looking for. It’s also helpful for verifying things, whoever is entering these entries normally enters tonnes of information. Unfortunately they rarely enter the caterer (the poor forgotten caterer).
Not only does IMDB have information about the movie, there are also reviews from people who have seen the movie…not paid reviewers but everyday people.
If I’d been smart enough to look at the IMDB entry for Lady Chatterley, I would not have wasted an hour of my time seeing it (and yes I know the movie goes for three hours, after nodding off during one of the ‘love’ scenes, I left). At least one person mentioned that I would have fallen asleep if I didn’t like DH Lawrence (which I don’t…but some of the movie adaptions of his novels have been good).
Hmm, as I’m typing this I just realised that technology could be outside the internet realm. In that case then I want robotic vacuum cleaner…one of those ones that sense furniture and vacuum around it. Sure it wouldn’t do the corners well but it would do the rest of the carpet. (Although, if the Choice Magazine tests are anything to go by, it doesn’t do that so well either). Ah well.
