Hidden in Plain Sight on Facebook

It’s likely that I’m just late to the game here, but do large corporations that spend a fair amount of money on their Facebook presences realize there’s something not quite right going on? I first discovered this after creating a page for my fledgling t-shirt business. With a business page on Facebook, most proprietors would like visitors to see something … Read More

Game-Changing Tech

OnLive Gaming Service

Spawn Labs HD-720 In a nutshell, it’s a Slingbox for gamers. It will allow you to remotely turn on your gaming console and play your games over the internet. I saw a demo on the Engadget show and it looked promising. The caveat is that you are limited to whatever game disc happens to be in the console tray, unless … Read More

iPhone III

After an almost year long love-hate relationship with the iPhone, it looks like firmware 2.1 FINALLY brought the much needed stability it should have had from the start. The love-in is on (for now).

So let’s get the well worn … Read More

Assuming this is real, it is a crying shame for Redmond. (Though not as quite as shameful as the rollback to XP options being offered by many PC vendors.) Like countless others, I was counting the days til February 15th-the originally-leaked date for the first service pack release for the beleaguered OS. Now it looks like it will be at … Read More

The eBook Debuts, Gutenberg Shrugs

As stated numerous times, I am a shameless gadget whore and until recently (i.e. marriage and looming fatherhood) a longtime early adopter. But I can proudly say that I was never once-not even for a second (Okay, maybe ONE second) seduced by the LCD screen of the eBook concept, the announcement of which long preceded my newfound life of relative … Read More
