viksoe.dk - GMail Drive shell extension

This is way too cool. A tiny shell extension for Windows XP that lets you use your gmail account as a disk drive. It shows up on the "Send to" menu when you right click a file. It also shows up as a drive from "My Computer". It looks like you can only move files on and off, you can't write to it directly. This is a nice simple way to help me keep little things in sync between work and home.

more stupid itunes

Feb. 27th, 2006 | 02:04 pm

Ah, another week, another dot release for itunes. Each week as I go through the update process I wonder the same things:

  • Why do I have to download 40mb of executable every time I go through this stupid process? Why can't Apple have inline product updates like so many other pieces of software? If opensource firefox can figure it out, why can't they?
  • What exactly has changed between x.x.2 and x.x.3? What is the value in obfuscating it?
  • I wonder if this one will be any more stable? (The answer to this is always no).
Why do I keep using iTunes? Mostly inertia. And the ways in which it's unstable are vaguely annoying but not enough to move me on. And I'm still recovering from the hundreds of hours I spent playing with different mp3 players, many moons ago. :)
