Fresh new look

I have changed the name of this blog from Netbooks, the Universe and Everything to Technology, the Universe and Everything. This is because the previous title didn't quite catch the essence of this blog anymore. When I started this blog I blogged about stuff related to my then new netbook, but it appears that there's only so much you can write about one. Since then I have, for example, bought a new desktop computer and a new smartphone as well and I have written about things related to both of those.

While changing the name I figured that now it would be a good time to renew the looks of this blog as well. Blogger didn't even have the previous look in their selection of styles anymore. I have now also added a box of the most popular entries to the side bar. So, welcome to the same old blog with a fresh new look and name. :)

PS. In case you didn't get, the name of the blog was and still is a reference to the novel by Douglas Adams.

The best TED talks

I have compiled a list of the most interesting TED talks I have watched so far. There's a talk about gaming, a couple about data visualization and a few about brains. There's a talk by F-Secure's Mikko Hyppönen and one by the skeptic James Randi. MythBuster Adam Savage's talk is also featured. It's not about robots but there's another one about them as well. Currently there are thirteen talks but I'll probably update the list as I encounter more good enough talks. Watch one or a few, let me know what you think about them and also feel free to suggest new talks for me to watch!
