Twelve South BackPack 2

  • August 9th, 2012

As usual Twelve South delivers with their new BackPack 2. I’ve been a long time fan of their BookArc vertical notebook stands. I don’t have any experience with any of their “soft” goods like the BookBook or SurfacePad, but Twelve South’s ability to execute a small idea with precision engineering and attention to detail is […]

Great opportunity to move to Media Temple

  • May 29th, 2012

Are you happy with your current web host? I know I am. Media Temple is currently running a special Summer Starter Kit special: 50% off SiteMover + 20% hosting. SiteMover is Media Temple’s completely new hands-off solution for site migration. I just used it last week to move from an older 3.5 Dedicated-Virtual to the […]

Creative advertising, zoo vs. children at home

  • May 8th, 2012

I will never ever find visiting a zoo boring or old. I can count the number of times I visited one as a kid on one hand which is why I find this print campaign so awesome. Check it out, noises you hear at the zoo vs. noises you may hear at home with restless […]

Agree or disagree? Time for an App Store reset?

  • May 1st, 2012

I chanced upon a blog post titled It’s Time for an App Store Reset. While not at all fair for some apps, the idea of having a view of the App Store minus minus the stale, old and broken sounds appealing. I would appreciate a purifying rain to cleanse the App Store of cruft. If […]

Streamdin for iOS & Android available for download

  • April 11th, 2012

An old project was dusted off and relaunched this week for both iOS & Android: The core functionality of original web-based application remains – geotagged Twitter activity displayed in real-time on a map. View activity around your current location, or search for a new city to check out. Both apps inadvertently "throttle" digital noise […]

iTunes movie purchases can not be re-downloaded

  • January 20th, 2012

Ok, I admit up front that this is more of an [informational] rant regarding the iTunes Store. In addition to iPhone / iPad apps, I purchase music, television and movies. I rented a movie once but was disappointed by the asinine expiration rules of digital rentals. After hitting play I have 24 hours to finish […]

Early powder morning at Stevens Pass

  • January 19th, 2012

I purchased the GoPro Hero2 a few weeks ago with plans to use it during my various outdoor activities. Here’s a sample while snowboarding at Stevens Pass. Overall I’m impressed with this tiny little video camera. It’s bare bones but I’m not complaining. The protective case and various mounts make it super versatile. If you’re […]

Honestly, how is the Jawbone Up?

  • December 7th, 2011

When the Jawbone Up was announced, I was excited. Excited with the idea of data logging my daily routine. Initial reviews were positive. I almost purchased one until I stopped and wondered “would I really use it?”. I mean sure, of course I would use it. For awhile at least. I probably would have given […]

My Amazon Kindle Fire thoughts

  • December 5th, 2011

A few weeks ago I linked to a Kindle Fire review. Now that I’ve had an opportunity to spend some hands-on time with the device, I can share my own thoughts. Without organizing any of these into any specific order: The 7″ screen and overall form factor is great. I can hold the device comfortably […]
