Droolart Chindogu created for a assignment on Venture-Lab’s Crash Course on Creativity
Scary scenario on the future of gaming & gamification of your life.
One of the most inspiring talks I’ve seen this year. #fb
"[smart]phones are so powerful, why are … we treating them like they are little, little thin client attached to the cloud?"
"AFAP, As Frictionless As Possible"
If you have the chance watch at least the first 2/3 of the talk.
Here’s and commandline example to convert a VDI to VMDK for VMWare Fusion using VirtualBox.
You need to install VirtualBox to get the required tools.
Get it here: http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/server-storage/virtualbox/downloads/index.html
/Applications/VirtualBox.app/Contents/MacOS/Vboxmanage clonehd “/Volumes/Drobo/Virtual Machines/windows.vdi” “/Volumes/Drobo/Virtual Machines/windows.vmdk” -format VMDK -variant standard
Used this with newer VirtualBox 4.2 and Fusion 4 and it works. The additional parameters given in the original blog don’t seem to be supported anymore.
Looks like a very promising way to teach kids how to programm. I looked around previously and couldn’t find quality material.
Finally no more clutter with multiple chargers lying around and several outlets taken. #fb The Callstel Universale USB-Multi-Loader handles six devices with 4 selectable adapters and 2 USB-Ports. The adapters on top have enough space to the base so that even devices with covers can be loaded. It has enough power to load a iPad 3 which the Belkin loader I tried previously failed on. A lightning adapter is not yet available so I use one of the USB ports which is better for iPads anyway as it’s a little fragile to have them stand upright.
The new Toshiba 2TB HDD fit’s nicely on top of the time capsule and hides behind the iMac.
