HOW TO: Get ChromeOS's Google Talk webapp working on standard Chrome Browser

  1. Install Google Talk from the Webstore

  2. Look at the URL. Notice the ID of the plugin? Copy and paste it into a text editor.
  3. Search on your computer for the folder containing the plugin. The folder name is the same as the ID of the plugin (on windows)
  4. Open all javascript files (js directory) in a text editor and replace all occurrences of "navigator.userAgent.indexOf("CrOS")>=0" with "1" (without quotes)
  5. Save all and restart Chrome
  6. Open Gtalk from the appsmenu -> done!

  7. To see the message window, simply resize the popup
  8. BEWARE: It is just a hack, it may completely fail. Improvements welcome.
    Don't expect all functionality to work.... or any ^^

Enjoy! ;)

EDIT: If anyone knows how to enable the flag for floating panel support, the app may work just like on ChromeOS. The old flag got kicked out (--apps-panel)

New ways of communication. LOL, ROFL and beyond.

Many of you know these abbreviations that are used extensively all over the internet:
Most of you love them, a few of you hate them. But the latest grammar-nazi-troll-food is the next step in modern communication: meme-based words. Recently I had an extensive discussion with some guy that tried to showcase his superiority by questioning my intelligence, just because I used a meme. "Awesome Sauce", a goofy word I used only once, was enough to act as a catalyst for an intellectual battle of epic dimensions. Well this guy was, to be honest, unarmed.
His main point was, that the common Internet slang just supports the "stupidification" of the common population by raping language (or something like that). I have to politely disagree. The inability to follow the rules of grammar or to build correct sentences and making typos are a problem, not these "new words" that are emerging.

Radioactive tanning holidays!

So, while half Germany is/was chained to the tracks in Gorleben, Germany (The Atomic disposal waste whatever depot) to block the happy-train (the codename for the cask for storage and transport oradioactive material“ short CASTOR-Transport) from dumping Mr. Sadface (lots of radioactive crap) in a leaking salt-mine, the German Government decided to avoid all this media circus caused by thousands of tree-hugging and radioactivity-unliking neo-hippies and unemployed students in the near future.

Hard boiled eggs for breakfast ain't as healthy as an Apple.

... but they may go hand in hand. What I'm talking about? Scrotal hyperthermia.

your lap after 30, 60 and 120 minutes

Well... Guess what. Your balls like fresh air and chilly temperatures, but if you remember the MacBook unibody test results of the Core i7 model which showed a peak temperature of about 100°C (212°F) (luckily) on the bottom side of the notebook, you don't have to be a rocket-scientist to figure out that your little swimmers might want to avoid being cooked alive like a hummer.

God save the Queen! (and free online navigation)

So, the British Monarchy has finally arrived in the 21st century and got a Facebook page, yay!

I'm totally waiting for the first parteeeeey pics of the both youngsters Harry and theotheronewhosnameiforgot.

So I did a little research but sadly the MI6 still doesn't have a facebook page. Meh. Whatsoever. At least they didn't pixelate their address in Google StreetView like #blurmany did.

How to bypass the Google TV block of Hulu, Netflix and the major channels

Androidspin just posted something interesting...
As more and more sites block google tv, a company called PlayOn saw a chance to win our hearts... It's not free but comes with a certain amount of awesome-sauce, because it bypasses the blockage completely.

SyFy just got lame

Guess who joined the legion of doom aka "the networks that block google TV".. 
SyFy sucks.

Yeah right, SyFy. WTF guys? Are you too stupid to realize that you can't gain cash cows this way? What is the sense of all this childish crap?
Almost EVERY modern PC has an HDMI Out and guess what I still can do with my awesome tech skills...
I summon a HDMI cable with black nerd magic and connect it to a HD-TV. Wow. And, suddenly I've got your shit streaming on my TV.
Come on... why are you that stupid? You're pissing off a crapload of people. YOUR VIEWERS. You simply gain nothing from that!

BTW.: Canceling Caprica without a proper ending and introducing WRESTLING on a sci-fi channel PRIME TIME!? Are you serious? Who runs your crappy company? A horde of autistic monkeys?!

Monkey says fudge you

That was a short one. Rant rant rant.

Show me your phone and I tell you that Statistics are bullshit

Let's have a look at two graphs.
Monthly telephone bill per smartphone manufacturer

Ok. Simple economics 101.
If your girlfriend works for a phonesex-hotline, don't call her at work. Over 160$?! WTF? Are these stats from a third world country? Or is it from Brazil, where everything is a bit more expensive, just like the PS3 for over 3700 Bucks.

I feed the Trolls. Why Sony Move is gay and Microsoft Kinect isn't.

A short history lesson

We all remember the time before the Wii showed up in our, rather boring world of consoles. The time when couch-potatoes ruled the earth and the couch itself was a temporary storage room for pretzel-crumbs and chips and the occasional couch-pizza. The time where our asses and the couch formed a beautiful symbiosis and our girlfriends (if they existed) were far, far away from our beautiful kingdom of geeky manliness each time the magical glowing powerbutton filled the darkness of the room with it's warm and beautiful healing light.


Let's start with the Big Bang

Maybe some of you may remember that this blog already existed many many years ago. It was rather successful, but well... my priorities shifted a little and when my server died, the site died too.
Yeah, I suck, I know.
Many asked for it and bragged to bring it back. Ok guys, here we go!

So what can you expect here?
Lots and lots and lots of tech stuff and tech talk... mostly reviews and breaking news. We will see if I'll extend the topics to politics and pop culture too, but I guess I'll save that for my other blog -> on tumblr.
If you are easily offended... you shouldn't read my stuff. Seriously. Not a good idea.

Don't even think about it.
