Roku or Apple TV?

I updated my MacBook to Mountain Lion this week and so far, so good. There is definitely a theme of unification between OSX and iOS with the Apploids newest release. Notification center, the cloud, reminders and notes all play nicely at the OS level with Mountain Lion. The killer feature though may be AirPlay. I …

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 …

Amazon to Invoke Time Machine Clause

Well, OK, that might be stretching it a bit, but according to Geeky Gadgets they are working on extending their distribution outlets to be able to offer same day delivery. Amazon has already made agreements with several states to begin collecting tax in those states and as the Verge has pointed out more traditional retailers …

Firefly Grille- A Restaurant Report

20120628-190511.jpg

With a tag line like “Green Hills’ Friendliest and Funkiest Little Neighborhood Joint” I suppose that I should have had my expectations well tempered for what was to come. A “joint” in this sense almost always means that the food outpaces the ambience. I was not quite prepared for the inside of Firefly to look …

Summer Rickshaw Lovin’

For some of us, nothing says love like curling up with a good book by the pool, at the beach or even in the backyard hammock. If you are anything like me though, it is a fifty-fifty decision whether I read on paper or something electronic. I actually like the flexibility of having a whole …

Transit of Venus

OK, not that kind of Venus. Nor the “Men are From Mars” type either… The once in a lifetime astro-planetary interface kind of transit of Venus. Don’t think that just because this happened 8 years ago (across the sun’s southern hemisphere) that this is some crazy, common astro-event. This is solar system gold. In the …

Silly and Pointless

…but still wonderful. If you haven’t been by Snorgtees in a while you are missing out. My current favorite: Vapid and generally silly, sometimes embarrassing but never, NEVER boring! A couple of other great ones… My favorite sort on the site is the geeks and nerds one.

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 …

Table 3 A Restaurant Report

Titanic 3D is 3 hours long. This apparent non sequitur does have a point. My wife and I dropped our daughter off at the movie and we had that amount of time to kill. What could be better than a long, leisurely dinner to kill that time? The great thing in this instance is that …

Runnur for Production

I mentioned this week that I bumped into the owner of Runnur at the NAB show. It reminded me of what a cool production tool this was. As soon as Andrew saw my post he sent me this picture. They did a custom run of Runnurs for the backstage staff at South by Southwest in …
