  • iriver

    I’m playing with my new podcast device, the iriver H340.

    I’m totally blown away.

    iPod versus iriver:
    Design & interface: iPod wins.
    Features: Music, pictures, video (watching Sex and the City now), radio and excellent recording. iriver wins.

    The iPod and the Creative Nomad Jukebox will go on sale very soon.

  • Name issues

    De Smet is a common name in Belgium. That’s why I choose to act with a nickname (Smetty comes from De Smet) on the web.

    Today Smettie is hot. Boudewijn Bouckaert refers with this name to Yves Desmet from De Morgen.

    I didn’t like it while I was reading the story (doesn’t matter that he wrote smettie with “ie”). My name is to common, my nickname abused and my first name is linked to the XXX-industry.

    Should I go for a total name change? Any suggestions?
