As apparently my eyebrows were “Too antennae-like”. So, in the name of getting a nice headshot done, I had the world’s tiniest haircut on my eyebrows only. Who said my life wasn’t sometimes surreal?
At the same time, quality Alex writing is available for your enjoyment in print and online. Just yesterday I was trying to explain all my many and varied outlets to a lovely PR person*, and I suspect confusing her terribly. In the print world, I’m naturally enough in this month’s issue of Australian Macworld, where I discuss the true terrors of technology, and specifically why describing every new smartphone as an “iPhone Killer” is quite a dumb move. It’s not quite up there with “JesusPhone” in my least favourite terminology, but it’s certainly close.
Meanwhile, the October issue of PC User Magazine features my reviews of the Samsung i8, CorelWordPerfect Office X4 Standard and the Jabra SP700 for your enjoyment.
But wait! There’s still more!
The October issue of Australian Netguide is practically overflowing with Kidman-related goodness. If you take everything that I and the clone have written, it is in fact overflowing, but only in the good, environmentally friendly, drought-breaking way. I would say search out the stuff with an “Alex” in front of it, but the deputy editor is called Alex, just to confuse matters further. So, you’ll just have to hunt down the reviews and features with both an “Alex” and a “Kidman” in front of it. This month, that includes reviews of the i-Mate Jama 201, Nokia 5310, Nokia N95, Nokia N78, Palm Centro, LG KF510, LG KF750 Secret, LG KF600, Sony Ericsson W760, Sony Ericsson C902, Sony Ericsson K660, Sony Ericsson C702, Samsung SGH-U900T, Blackberry Curve and Apple iPhone 3G. And that’s just the phone feature! You’ll also find reviews with my byline of the Iomega Media Xporter, Netgear ReadyNAS Duo RND2150, Kodak AutoMagic CD-R, MobileMe, Altec Lansing T612 Speaker Dock, ABC iView, Corel WordPerfect Office X4 Standard, Whereis Everyone, Google Lively, Chronicles Of Narnia: Prince Caspian (PC), Metal Gear Solid 4 (PS3), Ninja Gaiden II (Xbox 360) and Super Smash Bros Brawl (Wii). And, to top things off, the Broadband Directory to Australia’s best ISP deals.
But I’m not done yet. Although I probably should be. There’s also online contributions, which today both come courtesy of APCMag.com:
Phwoah: Sony unveils 25 megapixel DSLR: “Full frame, full-fat 24.6 megapixel sensor and a fully sick blow to your wallet await.”
Qantas to offer paperless iPhone 3G check-in: “Now you’ll really hate it if you lose your boarding pass…”
