Blue Screen of Death during Olympics and more!

It happens all the time, the old Blue Screen of Death (BSOD), If you have ever worked on a windows computer (and really who hasn’t?) at some point you will run into the dreaded wall of Blue.

It usually happens at the worst possible moment, like during the Olympics opening ceremonies.

On my latest trip to New York City I witnessed two major problems on some pretty big screens.

I was in town for only three days and wasn’t really looking for windows errors, I just happened upon them.

The first was on the corner of Times Square. It looks like somebody needs a virus check up. I am not sure what was suppose to be displayed on their huge screen but I am almost positive it wasn’t this.


The next one was a nice restaurants menu on display.

I am not saying Macs don’t have problems as well, I just didn’t see any.

BoxOffice comes back to app store as Now Playing

Picture 6.pngAfter so many apps vanishing without a trace or an explanation, it’s nice to see an app come back even though the circumstances are still a little sketchy!

BoxOffice, a very handy app that let’s you know what’s playing at your local theaters, was pulled a few weeks ago. The developer, Cyrus Najmabadi, was unable to give any details due to the iPhone SDK NDA. He is said to be unhappy with the whole deal, but glad that BoxOffice is back in the Apple App store.

Another interesting twist, BoxOffice was re-named Now Playing, so if you are missing your movie times and location info, go download Now Playing and enjoy….until it mysteriously disappears again!
