Logitech SqueezeBox Duet review, simply awesome

There once was a time when I assumed that setting up a quality home music network would be challenging and costly. I thought that my main options were either the (1) Sonos Music System or (2) Airport Express + iTunes combination. Two different methods of music network bliss – each with their own caveats. Sonos […]

Spain – beautiful, vibrant, and full of color

Syl and I enjoyed an awesome 2.5 weeks visiting parts of Southern Spain with a group of friends and their significant others. We made our way through Chiclana, San Fernando, Cadiz, Granada, Seville, Conil, El Bosque / Benamahoma (for a 5km hike) and Gibraltar. As I type this, our bags have yet to be unpacked. […]

Four real-time options for collecting user feedback

If you are writing for an audience online, one of the first services you should enable is real-time analytics.

FriendFeed just announced new themes for users. What’s a social web service without, right? Oddly enough, the selected theme for a given user profile is visible for the profile owner only. Can I choose how my profile or group page looks to other people? At the moment, selecting a theme will change how FriendFeed looks […]

Win Visio Standard 2007 for designs, wireframes, or idea dumps

If I worked primarily on a PC, Microsoft Visio would be one of the most used apps in my dock Start Menu. I can’t speak from personal experience, but based on the features (and from what others have told me), Visio is a solid piece of software – especially if your daily tasks involve creating […]

Hi Apple, the Genius Bar knows, so… 3.0.1 Update soon?

The iPhone 3GS is a great upgrade from the original iPhone 3G. The processor bump, memory boost, and 3.2 megapixel camera with tap-to-zoom & video recording have made me fall in love with the iPhone all over again. If you’re contemplating or have made the jump from the iPhone 2G, the comparison between the two […]

Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen vs. Terminator Salvation

Not much needs to be said here. Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen and Terminator Salvation. Which one do you think will have a bigger box office turnout? Personally, I’m leaning more towards Transformers as my favorite of the two. Original video embeds were from Vimeo but were taken down.
