Well, I have to say that this was not what I expected FaceBook to announce today. “Graph Search” is their system to access the info that many of us use to make social decisions currently with FaceBook. Where do I want to eat FaceBook? Where do my friends like to hang out FaceBook? What is …

Consumer Trends

Consumer research data is always interesting but it is not always useful… I found a couple of nuggets of “hmm” in the infographic below from the research crew at Ericsson. For instance, point 4 that mobile network coverage is the fourth most important driver of satisfaction with urban life? I mean, I have been known …

The Southern- A Restaurant Report

The Southern is an extension of the restaurant and catering company of Tom Morales. With brands like Loveless Cafe and Saffire and his own TomKats catering company it’s not like he has to prove anything to anyone. To me though, the Southern looks to be his way of making a statement. It is an intriguing …

The Lexicon of Tech

I was listening to a story on the radio talking about the recent hiring of Marissa Mayer as CEO of Yahoo. One person interviewed about her commented on her personal “gravitas” The commentator even used the syntactically unclear sentence, “The reasons why the male geek is ascendant are complex.” The interesting thing to me was …

New Spire USA Torq Backpack

Glad to see that Spire USA has production running again on their excellent Torq backpack. The original Torq was actually the very first review I wrote and I was inspired to do so after a rather exhaustive search for the perfect laptop backpack. It was the best I could find and it looks like they …

Copper Kettle A Restaurant Report

The Copper Kettle is curled up right at the feet of Lipscomb University on the Granny White side in a small row of shops. Draper’s Jewelry anchors one side and the Kettle is tucked right in the middle. If you are a southerner, then I do not have to explain what I mean by the …

Subscribe To My Blog

So…you know I am supposed to be like…technical? I am…really. No, seriously. I apparently just need to go to WordPress school. The Blog Subscription plug-in that I was working with is apparently flawed. Sort of like that parrot in the Monty Python skit. By which I mean it was completely, and utterly non-functional. I have …

iKeyboard Review

As I have mentioned before I have keyboard issues. Well, I have lots of issues, ( just ask my long-suffering wife) but the particular issues that I am referring to today are rooted in my truly abysmal handwriting. I actually LIKED Grafitti on the original Palm units because it would convert my hideous scrawl into …
