Know Everything and Control Everything: 2 Apps to Try

Here are a couple of the latest (Yay! Free!) apps that I’ve tried. No surprise that I found them through Lifehacker. The first is Circa. (iPhone or Android) Circa is a news aggregation site (with Real news even). You can stay with the Top Stories default or check out national or world news, politics, technology, […]

A Very Shiny App Review

I’ve tried a few new apps and gadgets over the last few weeks. My priority has been finding a replacement for my Google Reader. Google Reader is going away for good in July if you haven’t heard. I-ve had Flipboard on my iPad forever, but I don’t really use it that often. The feeds feel […]

Eye Bones

Seriously. Aaghh! A Lady Grew Bones in Her Eyelids Because of a Dangerous New Surgery Remind me to take “Stem Cell Face Lift” off my Must-Do List

Why I’m Slowly Moving Away From Facebook

I’m slowing moving away from Facebook for a variety of reasons. Top of the list is that I’m not crazy about what a corporate juggernaut it is becoming. Going public never really improves the quality or customer service of a product. Facebook has got it’s place. It’s a great place to keep in touch with […]

How To Be An Awesome Blogger.

Blog.   Seriously. I haven’t posted since July 22. Two weeks. No excuses. I have surely had time to write at least something brief. Although, to be fair, I am participating in Camp NaNoWriMo AND readingĀ  Hemingway‘s face off. I spend entirely too much time reading (Problogger) planning (The Blog Herald) strategizing (Copyblogger) …about blogging […]

Foursquare can then announce your presence to your friends and followers on Facebook or Twitter. You can compete with your friends to earn the most check in points. You […]

I’m Not BranchingOut and You Can’t Make Me

I am currently on: Facebook Linked In Twitter (as is my dog @spenserthedog) MySpace (pretty much dormant) Pinterest Google + (still waiting for the +) Goodreads Letterboxd Wordpress Blogger Digg Spotify Sound cloud Klout StumbleUpon But for some reason, […]

This is How I Know I am Old

I heard part of an NPR story this morning about VC in Silicon Valley and I was wondering why the Viet Cong would be interested in investing in startups.

Earthquakes: Protecting Your Most Important Assets

My first instinct when I heard about the DC-VA-NYC Earthquake was to text my daughter who is away at college in the eastern part of NY State. The Gospel According to Twitter seemed to indicate that people from North Carolina to Boston were reporting tremors, so it seemed reasonable to check on her. My iPhone […]

Building a Castle on a Cloud

iCloud is the latest coolness from Apple and its first real foray into cloud computing. They have taken a few swings at this market with mobileme, .mac and iTools, but none of these apps were as robust or all-encompassing as iCloud. You get 5 GB of storage for free. The easiest way to explain cloud […]
