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 …

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.

Easy Like Sunday Morning

I should be posting something useful, insightful and interesting here on Restless Tech this morning. Of course, that would be a radical shift from what I normally do! I wouldn’t want to shock you too much so I will stick to my normal, vapid emptiness! I have been up for a couple of hours reviewing …

Conspiracy Theory

Cult of Mac has let us in on the fact that Facebook is not the only company trying to get in on the act of buying photo sharing apps. So, to get into the act, I’d like to announce that I’ve actually entered into negotiations with Kodak to buy the troubled company. I’ve offered $11, …

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 …

Walking and Texting

20120416-105711.jpg

The gentleman in the picture above is committing one of the cardinal trade show sins; texting while walking. Come on buddy, you obviously need to pick one or the other. While not quite as foul as its ordinal cousins “texting while driving” and “texting when you should be paying attention to what your spouse is …

Southwest Early Boarding

. One of my favorite tricks when flying on Southwest is their Early Bird boarding add on. If you are not familiar with Southwest (who I lovingly call the Greyhound of the Air, or Cattlecall Airlines) they have an “open seating policy”. This means that you get in line and grab any seat you see …

Apple March Mania

College hoops has March Madness and apparently Apple is trying to compete with their own attempt to froth the buying public into a complete dither. From 9to5Mac the celebration of the 25 billionth download is upcoming and some lucky punter is going to win a $10,000 iTunes card. You can enter without downloading anything here. …

Retro Valentine’s Day

That’s right, I am kickin’ it old school. Disney Princess, pre-perforated Valentine’s cards complete with heart stickers and temporary princess tattoos. Well, I mean I assume that they are temporary. How embarrassing would that be! Can it be any more retro, any more grade school throwback than the whole box of Valentine’s so that I …
