I only have a laptop and it looks to be just the same as using the track pad. If I had a desktop I would like to try this out.

With the loss of Steve Jobs I fear that that we have lost the brilliance and drive that is (or was) Apple.

I believe that this is reflected in the iPhone 5 failure to appear. My hope, and this is from a purely selfish point of view, is that Apple can still fulfil their destiny according to Steve, to create products that 'just work' like your TV or radio do. This is the way it should be, true plug and play.

I am sorry to see Steve Jobs pass on at such a young age. He will be missed.

Holiday Time

The Origin

holidayThis may not be true but I like it anyway. I recently found out where the word ‘holiday’ originated from and it’s an interesting story. Oddly enough Wikipedia dose not have this version on their site, so here it is.

Back in America’s wild west there was a guy called ‘Doc Holiday’ who would turn up at his local saloon each night, get drunk and eventually pick a fight and shoot someone.

Basically he was a drunken ass hole that was good with a gun.

So every night Doc would turn up, get a skin full and shoot someone, simple. You would think the patronage would have thinned out or the place would have gone broke or that people would have avoided the place. Who knows.

One day or should I say night, the Doc did not turn up, in fact, he did not turn up for two weeks.

At the end of the two weeks, things went back to normal, Doc Holiday returned and continued his nightly drinking and continued shooting at least one person per night.

Soon others in the town would take off for a break or to do business out of town and say that they where doing a ‘Doc Holiday’ and would be back in a few weeks.

This was eventually shortened to just ‘I am going on a Holiday’ or ‘it’s holiday time’ or something along that line.

Bali

It’s that time of year again for me where I get to go on my holiday, I am not going to shoot anyone but I am off to Bali. I will be back in early September and start writing again.
