Brand New iPhone

I’m very excited for the new iPhone…assuming it really has this invisible feature. I love gadgets, but in truth my interest in new phones has dropped off considerably. Most new features seem simply bigger screens or slightly snappier processors. It’s been a while since a new feature really impressed me. ↓ TranscriptCZAR: I accidentally replied to all of campus with ... Read More »

Mac Versus PC

I’ve actually had someone get angry at me before because I said I didn’t have a huge preference between the two formats. I’ve used both and find both to have some strengths and weaknesses, but beyond that it’s mostly a tool in my mind. I get someone preferring Toyota over Honda, but I can’t see why it would make them ... Read More »

Or else just frustrating everyone that works with them. ↓ TranscriptMITTENS: I don't understand how your communication budget ... Read More »

iSad

Yesterday was a sad day with the passing of Apple co-founder Steve Jobs. When I heard the news it just made me incredibly sad. I wasn’t sure why at first. Certainly I have no real connection to Jobs. While I use some Apple products, I hardly consider myself a diehard fan. Nor would I be as sad to hear of ... Read More »

Convenient Timing

It’s hard to believe that Osama bin Laden is actually dead. I’m sure there will be conspiracy theories to come out of all this (there’s already plenty about 9/11), but even not doubting the official story, this day is hard to imagine. Not because it’s such a relief, but because I had long ago reserved myself to the idea it ... Read More »
