Life is a series of choices. Every step is a choice, an option, a decision. We try our best to make these choices based on what we know. What we pick may not be based on what is right and what is wrong, but what we believe in our minds and hearts. Whatever we do decide, we have to compromise. It is always one or the other.

Protect your Mac from getting stolen

I’ve seen the Mac do many wonderful and great things. Never have I been so impressed in my life, check out the video.

You can download iAlertU for free, and you don’t really need a remote. It just looks way cooler, and is better than using a password.

My Creative Profile: Creative Pathfinder

Thanks to Shayma (ahamshay.com) for posting about an online creativity profiler. The test is a part of the Art Institute of Pittsburgh online division. I still remember watching the TV when I was in the US and always seeing the ads of the institute wondering if the scholarship program would agree if someone wanted to study in such institutes. I don’t think they will.

And as you know I am a large promoter of creativity and freeing your mind. After taking the test it turns out I’m a creative pathfinder and this is what it said about me.

HOW DO I THINK
Inspiration comes from innovation: your conscience lies with the future, You are inspired by how a problem is solved, not discussed. It’s all about natural form… it can seem random, but there is an intentional symmetry that really appeals to your eye. You seek out your creativity by grabbing opportunities that come your way. Challenges invigorate your mind and provide you with a point of reference.

HOW DO I LIVE
Nothing beats the buss of getting far away from the grind of daily life, kicking back, and enjoying a little serenity! Others see you as someone who can fix it. You’ll always get stuck in, not afraid to fail on the route to getting the right answers. Bliss is a feeling free to do as you please, exploring the world and your limitless imagination. Grabbing some time for you is a must. You like to keep well informed, soak up as much information as you can.

HOW I CREATE
Your strengths lie in your confidence to try out the unknown, mastering it before the masses. Being on the cusp on something new excites your appetite for cutting edge technology. You love the twists and turns of a well-told tale. The drama of life is one of your big passions. Pen to paper, you can grab any opportunity to record the thoughts that buzz about; you’ve got a creative head on those shoulders.

HOW I WORK
You learn best when you can discuss and argue the point. Learning should always be challenging and exciting. It would be great to be able to manage your own workload and be your own boss. Once you’ve got the know-how, you could realize your dream.

So What is your Creative Profile?

KISS!

Kissing

The picture has nothing to do with the post, I just like it. Also, this isn’t about THAT kiss but a totally different K.I.S.S.

I have been reading for a while now about a principle of simplicity on Wikipedia, branching off to other links and topics (So much for number 8 in my previous post!). I think I have found what I have been searching for for years.

I tend to spend too much time thinking (That’s number 7 in my previous post!) about everything and anything. From random silly stuff, to serious life-changing thoughts. I tend to philosophize a lot too. Thinking about theories, possibilities, examples, experiments, and so much more! I noticed that most of the process of thinking and doing things in this world is way too complicated! So many things could be a lot simpler.

So here it is folks, my calling, and my motto of the week for you!

K.I.S.S.Keep it Simple, Stupid (And other Variations.)

P.S. There’s a mention of Occam’s razor in that Wikipedia article. Occam’s razor is about theory selection. If you have multiple theories that reach the same conclusion, then the one with the least necessary assumptions is the best of the group. I also found the following comic, you have to understand the idea behind Occam’s razor to get it :p

Emotion-Sensing Furniture Changes Hues

Emotion Sensing FurnitureFuwapica — Soft and flashy. This is the new furniture of the future. Whereby it interacts with your mood and its surroundings to change hues. A concept would be such that..

a person might walk into a room furnished with Fuwapica, place a memento or favorite item — let’s say a blue vase — on the table and sit on one of the chairs. Gradually the chairs begin to change from white to blue.

Isn’t that just very cool? Read more about it at the Discovery Channel Technology News website.

Harry Potter Premiere Photos

I was taking a look at the Harry Potter Premiere Photos, and couldn’t help but notice the three pictures with Emirati people in Photos 9, 10, 11. I thought that was real cool.
