I have my Xbox set to remain in standby mode at all times. The mode does use power but it means system and game updates are applied when you’re not using the console and the system boots faster as it’s in a sleep mode and not completely turned off. Cold boot takes almost 3 minutes […]

Used this in San Francisco a lot. The cards worked great! Never an issue and it was very convenient. I’d love to find more ways to use Passbook.

I’m not a professional photographer or reviewer of gear. I’m an amateur so if you’re looking for an end to end review of the Olympus OM-D E-M1, hit up DPReview.  After a month of research and reading reviews, I decided to upgrade my aging Olympus E-PL2 that I bought in January of 2011. The three […]

I’ve never ordered a CTO Macintosh before and have it arrive within 3 business days. Amazing timing as I’m going out of town soon for another work trip.

I even have one of those Burton Jackets with iPod controls on them (I use an iPod classic + skull candy helmet when riding). Wearable tech is going […]

I don’t have any gamer friends that I know. I don’t know anyone with an Xbox that does anything other than just watch Netflix or Hulu so I’m just throwing this short post up to see if anyone out there has an Xbox One, plays Dead Rising 3, Battlefield 4 or Call of Duty Ghosts […]

I work a job that issues a smartphone and a computer. I have to attend meetings from home sometimes and this requires having technology. I also like the advantages of buying content digitally and not relying on a cable company and digital books are superior to the physical ones. I’m still in the world of […]

I’ve completely stopped reading the newspaper, books and online articles. I’ve stopped playing the 1-2 games I like (Simpsons and Plants vs Zombies) and I’m spending a lot less time in bed lately. When I lay down, I’m going to sleep, not to read or browse Reddit. Why has my consumption of the best of […]
