I haven’t use my browser for almost a week…yes. I cannot believe it is happening, and it’s happening so fast – people spend less and less time with their browser right now.

from Knight Rider to Ubiquity

February 17, 2009


Knight Rider has always been my favorite TV show. Yesterday during an unexpected insomnia I re-watched the recent 18 episodes, and interestingly, K.I.T T reminds me of Ubiquity.
