Random 60: Laptop or Desktop? | Favorite on Viddler.
Laptops are more powerful today than the computer used to launch the Space Shuttle in the 1960s. That is a fact. Look it up. That said, some people prefer desktops with much larger storage devices, displays, amounts of RAM, etc.
I’ve been using laptops since 2002 and haven’t gone back to desktops since. What about you? Laptop or Desktop?

After watching Heroes last night (since we went on vacation we had two episodes to catch up on) I thought about the actor who plays Sylar, Zachary Quinto, who is also going to be playing young Spock in the upcoming Star Trek film by J.J. Abrams and Co.
Turns out the official site has some wallpapers on it, thought they were a bit of alright.
A few ear tips and a quick eye brow shave and he’s into character!

The above photo was posted to Flickr from my iPhone a few minutes ago. Â I wanted to show off, in all its glory, the new desktop picture I’m using on both my Macbook and external monitor courtesy ofÂ MarkÂ Bixby.
But this brings up something that I’m completely torn over. Â Where should I post my mobile photos? Â I have a mobile photos category here on my blog, a Brightkite account that makes it dead-simple to post photos and remember where they were taken an in context, and a Flickr account.
It seems like every time I snap a photo with my iPhone I have a different idea of where I think it should go. Â I like having everything I submit to the Web here on my site. Â I think photos of what I’m currently eating at a restaurant is best kept on Brightkite for a lot of reasons, and perhaps an artsy mobile photo like this one would be best submitted to Flickr. Â Is that the answer? Â Should I diversify where I submit my mobile photos?
And better yet, why do I care so much? Should I care? Â Does anyone else care?

The crew over at the Iconfactory, who are the creators of Twitterrific among many other things, are doing a tribute to Indiana Jones this month. Â Here is a snap of my desktop, which I took using Skitch, to see the icons and one of their desktops in action:
You too can sport such Indy awesomeness by downloading
I’m looking forward to the next three icon set installments for The Temple of Doom, The Last Crusade, and the new The Kingdom of the Crystal Skull. Â I would have liked to see a desktop image or two for each of these movies included in the icon download.
