affiliate summit west 2009: vegas baby

Said I may as well attend one of these conferences and try to ‘network’ a bit in the ‘aul Internet marketing world. Or it could be just an excuse for tax deductible trip to Vegas 🙂 The conference is on January 11th (Sunday) to January 13th (Tuesday) but I’m flying in the previous Friday, check out Vegas for the weekend. Staying at the conference hotel, the Rio which is off the strip. Anyone else going and want to meet up, shoot me an email georgiecasey at gmail dot the com or twitter

apple are shite

I’m not a fan of most Apple stuff, they’re overpriced and the hardware they use is cheap. They do make sexy looking stuff though, I’ll give em that. And they seem to get away with anything and still have their fanboy faggots drooling over them (I’ve experienced this species IRL in their herds at the diggnation filming in London).

Fan of the iPod and iPhone though. Not a fan of iTunes and Quicktime, which are required to update firmware on these two products. Quicktime is possible the worst piece of software I’ve ever used. It fecked up Youtube’s sound on firefox when it installed (with iTunes, which I need) by trying to play all video and sound files. So I went into settings and unchecked them.

Then I needed to update firmware on my Iphone to 2.1, which required an upgrade of iTunes, which required an upgrade to Quicktime, which changed back all my settings without asking and fecked up Firefox again. If Microsoft did this the bloggers would have a field day.
