I’ve noticed that there [...]

Remember the 90s? Modems, Windows for Workgroups and Netscape Navigator? Well the user “SquirrelMonkeyCom” on YouTube has done a fantastic job of creating a video called “If Facebook were invented in the 90s.” This video is a blast and is a great way to reminisce about the early 90s Internet.
Thinking of leaving Facebook? Think you’re ready to take the plunge? Well good luck. I tried today and failed. Maybe you’ve got the guts to cut the cord? I got it worked up in my head that Facebook was just an evil corporation gathering data about me and my friends and that it would someday [...]

What happened to the iPhone 5? This seemed to be the question everyone was asking yesterday as Apple’s new CEO Tim Cook took to the stage to announce the iPhone 4S. Consumers and analysts alike were expecting a new form factor from Apple but what they got was much of the same albeit with greatly [...]
With the news yesterday of Twitter it’s pretty impressive how far this application has come in a short time.

You all got those lectures as a kid. Mind your manners at the table, watch your P’s and Q’s, sit up straight, hold the door open for others. If you had parents like I did then you definitely got lots of guidance on how to conduct proper social etiquette and manners when dealing with [...]
The title of this post could just as easily have been, “why do I lose focus so easily?” or “why am I so undisciplined?” as I’ll have to admit to having a bit of adult ADHD. I am easily tempted by new devices, apps, news stories, blogs, sporting events, and well … everything. I [...]
