    Iphone or Not Iphone

    The iPhone is pretty, but that's about all I can say about it. I just had my 2nd 1st Gen iPhone die in a year.  The battery life is pretty crappy if you actually want to do anything with the device.  If you only make a couple of calls a day your fine, but if you try and use the iPod or video...

    Your First Computer

    I actually had a TRS-80 Model I with the 8k expansion interface.  Yes, 8k.  You loaded everything off of a tape drive. When I moved up to the Commodore 64 I thought I was in high cotton.  :)

    Windows Vista - Whats Your Opinion?

    I think Vista looks nice, but it's bloated and even on my high end pc it's sluggish at times. I don't do anything on it other than a little gaming.  All my data is kept on my Macs. One thing I've noticed is that from time to time, even with a fresh install, if my machine goes into sleep mode...

    Restore MBR

    How about a video on removing Ubuntu and restoring MBR in Vista? I could always restore the MBR with XP, but playing around with different Linux distros under Vista, I can't get the MBR restored to wipe Grub.

    What do you think to Safari

    I use both, but tend to use Safari the most.  Some sites don't render properly in Firefox.  I do like the ability to customize it.  I've also noticed Firefox tends to sometimes cause my hard drive to spin up often and for no real reason.  Makes my laptop run hot when it does that.  Shutting down...

    Obama will win the election, no doubt about that. Nothing will change, it never really does.

    Iphone or Not Iphone

    Yea, I think so.  I bought a 1 Gen iPhone when they came out last year and it's the best phone I've ever owned.  Actually got one for myself and one for my wife and it's pretty amazing as phones go.  Just a great example of how Apple knows how to make a device that has the user in mind, like the...

    Earthquake In California !

    Had a nice shake here in Southern Cal today.  Was sitting at my computer and my desk started to shake back and forth.  Not too bad though and only lasted about 10 or 15 seconds total me thinks.

    Your Favourite Movie Of All Time

    All time favorite, low budget, light on special effects, Colossus The Forbin Project.  1970. How could any geek not love a movie about a giant computer that takes over the world?
