When I was younger, my parents would often suggest that I write a letter to my grandparents. At the time, it kind of seemed like an odd thing to do, but getting a letter in the mail was (and still is) a great feeling - but I couldn't tell you the last time I
You sign into Facebook, and are confronted with something new on your wall. It's begging to be clicked on. It promises you something funny, something revealing about someone else, or information about your profile you'd love to know. So - do you click on it? How could you pass that up? Of course, it may
I talk about twitter a fair bit, and I notice people have one of 3 reactions. They either say "I didn't know you were on Twitter! I'll follow you! What's your twitter name?", or they give me a vague, blank look as if to say "I already have Facebook, why do I need Twitter?" or,
Yesterday, a friend emailed me to ask if he should get an iPad or a Motorola XOOM. He wanted my honest opinion, and so I told him what the deciding factor needed to be - did he own already own apps for iPad/iPhone/iPod Touch, or Android apps? Although the devices cost similar amounts, the costs
I'm a proud Android user. Whether you want to debate about how great it is or how iOS is better (or even Windows Phone 7), there are some things about Android that are just amazing. Here they are. 1. Voice Actions - Trying to navigate the menu of a phone while driving is challenging. Google

You need a cable. A car charger. A case for your phone. Anything. You get in the car and head over to your local store, right? Absolutely not. Would you buy bread, eggs or milk from 7-11? Of course not. Those are convenience stores – they’re convenient to get to, but you pay a premium
A couple of years ago, a guy from work approached me. “Hey, good news!” he said. “I’m getting a Macbook this weekend!” I asked why. “I want to go online, and I’m tired of the anti-virus software trying to get me to pay. I want a Mac so I don’t have to worry about viruses.”
This subject is one that’s absolutely amazing, once you take the plunge. Sure, it’s kind of strange having a computer in the living room. Sure, you have to find somewhere to hide it, or make it look like part of the furniture. But the amount of things it opens up to you … here’s a
This is a great question I get all the time. I'm going to break this down into categories as much as possible. First, ask yourself - what do I want my mobile phone to do? Do I want to email from it? Sync with Outlook or Microsoft Exchange? Send instant messages? Install applications
This has irked me for years. Why waste half a piece of paper when printing? Duplex printers address this issue well - they print a page out, then suck it back into print on the other side.
