Why I Won't Be Buying An iPad (Yet)

· Posted in Hardware
I didn’t want to write about the iPad on day one, because I was fairly negative overall. I’m still not completely sold on it; it’s missing some things for me. Granted, I’m not the target audience for this device, and all these things I’m going to talk about are my pressure points.

The Dell E521 Hates Me

· Posted in Hardware
So today I started my new job. There was much rejoicing. Mainly by my father, whose bank account I slowly siphoned away whilst at university. Being a software engineer (member-in-training), I work on a computer. This computer happened to be a Dell E521. Not a top end machine, but for what I was going to be doing it was plenty of machine. I could do with it what I wanted I was told; awesome. I'm now the first person at CodeBaby to be running Ubun…
