iPhone the linker.

Super cool iPhone software is being developed in Japan. The software, called sekaicamera, will link outer world (where we live) to the Internet seamlessly. With this software, the real world will be like a part of the Internet, and the iPhone will be the linker between two different worlds.

Special characters

I was looking for special characters today. I need these characters to write scientific protocols. I listed up some of them which I need to use. Complete information about the special characters can be found here.

Google Chrome (update)

I am writing this post with Google Chrome. I just find that I am having a problem in adjusting image size and position with this browser. Of course, this browser is a beta version that must contain a lot of bugs. I should not complain.

Since I do not use Internet Explorer at all, I do not appreciate this browser as much as other people do. FireFox or Safari are already fast enough in my environment.

The Winning the web blog boldry predicted like this.
By 2010, Google Chrome will be the LEADING web browser, ahead of IE and Firefox.
However, I don't think so. In the bottom line, I think Google Chrome is very fast. But even after excellent FireFox had released, majority of people stuck to the Internet Explorer, because they didn't know how to shift to it. People who do not have IT literacy, will stick to the Exploerer forever.

Picture of the day

I took this picture last month at Antelope Canyon. It was amazingly beautiful.

San Francisco Half Marathon

I run the San Francisco half marathon in August.

That was not a race for me but just a part of my training. However, it was a really nice and memorable run. As I planed, I spent 2 hours and 30 minutes to run 13 miles. Therefore, it was a kind of slow and easy run (Although it was a very long run for me). I crossed the golden gate bridge, which was bit covered with fog, along with many other runners. It was very beautiful and looked different from the one I usually see from a car.

It was good that I actually did not walk at least and completed 13 miles. It was an accomplishment for me. I decide to run the full San Francisco marathon next year.

Google Chrome

I was traveling a lot in August. I went to Philadelphia, Aspen, Boston and Phoenix. Therefore, I did not have time to write this blog last month, but now I am back.

Google is going to release their first web browser, Google Chrome, tomorrow (15 min later). I will download their web browser as soon as possible.
