Last week, Sony introduced their new Playstation 4. Today, Microsoft’s Xbox One went on sale. Considering it’s been 7 years since the PS3 and 8 years since the Xbox 360 came out, the gaming community has had lots of pent up foaming-at-the-mouth excitement. Frankly, I’m disappointed. Sony and Microsoft should have released on […]
“You think you can stare down Elmo? Elmo doesn’t even have eyelids, so bring it on.”
For some strange reason, the realm of technology is absolutely replete with rivalries. Apple vs. Microsoft; Google vs. Yahoo; Microsoft vs. Sony; Apple vs. Google; Blackberry vs. Irrelevance. Perhaps it’s the passive nature of the nerds behind-the-scenes; […]
I was driving an Escalade for much of yesterday. They’re decent enough vehicles, if not exactly exciting. Nice to drive, comfortable, just all-around decent. But one thing bothered me, and I just couldn’t get past it. On the dash, on the passenger side, is the exact same “Cadillac” logo that you would have […]

In our world technology moves very quickly. It doesn’t take to long for a good idea to come and go in the blink of an eye. That item then looks horribly out of date in less then a decade from release.The future according to Bill Gates wasn’t on a phone or on your computer. It was going to be sent to you over the air.

Apparently XBox fanbois are called "X-Bots". More importantly, there are actually XBox fanbois? Really? Why?
Here’s the thing: virtually everyone I know has an XBox 360. They play these games on them, and apparently have lots and lots of fun. Yet every time I’ve visited, they’re not having fun and playing games, they’re […]
OK, ragging on IE is almost becoming a cliché, but as a hobbyist/emergency web developer, this kind of thing drives me all kinds of crazy. I wish I knew who actually took this photo and if they could tell me who’s presentation this was, because for those who know anything about W3C, standards, and […]
"T'Pol and Archer? Impossible!"
I was struggling last night to do some simple account maintenance on Facebook. I even — horror of horrors — resorted to asking the “Help” files for assistance, which is, as we know, usually about as productive as bashing your head against the keyboard. Sure enough, it proved to […]
Every couple of months, I get the same email sent to me. It’s a collection of bad predictions and stupid quotes. Things like the university professor for business giving a C+ to an idea for an overnight delivery service to the guy to went on to start FedEx. But there’s one on there that […]
