Hi! My name is Cédric Bozzi, I make websites and iOS apps, and this is my blog about technology (mostly a Twitter archive, really).

Vista license only transferrable once to a new computer before you’re forced to buy it again. I’m waiting for official confirmation on this, because I can’t make any sense of it at all.

Oh wait — actually, it does make a little sense in that most users don’t upgrade their computers and have to reauthorize Vista: they just buy a new computer, coming itself with a new Vista license. So the motivation could be to reduce the number of computers sold sans Windows license, and probably fighting occasional privacy by restricting the possibility of installing the same license on a couple computers in a small office or family.

Nevermind that it’s borderline extortion. And nevermind the nightmare of Windows Product Activation failures.

Idea: The Wii Workout. Heh.

Ambilite 5.1. I like the idea, just as I like the basic Ambilite concept, but I’m not sure how interesting this variation is. And I’m not sure about the fans, either.
