Cirque du Soleil’s Kooza opens in Hartford CT on April 1, 2008. If you haven’t been to a Cirque show, you’ll be amazed by the acrobatics and unique acts. Think of Cirque du Soleil as circus for adults. There are no animal acts. Some people bring children – but the audience is primarily adult. This will be the third timeRead more
[Ed. note: Just for fun - leave a count in the comments section of how many times the word "strap" appears in this review, and I will choose a random winner (of an equally random prize) from the correct entries on April 3rd. Update: questionfear is the winner!]
As summer is approaching, I often don’t have a handy pocket that
Sometimes, an item shows up in my mailbox for review that I REALLY want to work well. Maybe the description of the item just sounded so cool that I hope it lives up to the hype. Other times I’m rooting for the product because I believe in their mission and am rooting for the company to succeed. But in theRead more
Twitter account? Guilty. Jaiku account? Guilty. Never update those two microblogs after getting a Facebook page? Guilty.
If you haven’t yet discovered the fun world of microblogging, it’s a great way of keeping tabs on what your friends and online acquaintances are up to without having to make the effort of actually contacting them directly. And vice versa. Depending on
This morning we laughed at an email about a groom who stood up and exposed his cheating bride to 300 reception guests. Have you received this one too? Doubting the validity (though not the humor ) I quickly went online to see if this funny story was true. Keep reading for the story and whether it’s true. More importantly I’llRead more
In an interesting move, iTunes has a shot fired across its distribution-bow…
I’ve been into digital music since 1998. I bought a Diamond MP3 player and a 32MB storage card back in the day, and was listening to MP3′s I had ripped from MY CD collection at all times of the day and night. It was a wonderful thing. Then,
I’m a talker… Always have been, and will likely be yackin’ my head off the day I die. I… have the gift of gab. We all know its true, so who are we kidding.
With the influx of new devices I’ve got, E-TEN X800, E-TEN X650, and BB Curve 8310, I’ve been doing a lot of talking lately. I’ve been
Had he not been on TV competing on a rain-soaked Doral golf course in Miami, folks might have thought Tiger Woods was in Dallas on Easter having dinner at Trader Vic’s. Parked right up front was a pair of shiny new Buick Enclave luxury crossover utility vehicles, the vehicle Tiger helped launch at its auto show debut last year.
Interested in one of the CDMA Blackberry 8830 devices offered by Verizon or Sprint?

The problem only seems to appear on the CDMA carriers – but so many people are reporting an issue onRead more
Mike Cane sent me the link to a Register entry today, about the My Touch Keys iPhone overlay. His exact words (which I have edited, because…yeah) were:
Ho ****! Back to the future! This **** was available for the TIMEX SINCLAIR at the time!!!!

They are in the process of launching their new site, My Today Screen.
As their About page says, they founded the site “after realizing that many Windows Mobile sites were expanding their coverage into other areas, or into mobility generally. With the number of sites devoted
Once yesterday and twice today I’ve had emails bouncing back from clients stating my IP address was on a blacklist. The list in question is relays.ordb.org. Problem is that this spam database was shut down in December 2006. According to an article on Slashdot, the ORDB service began returning false positives 3/25/2008 as a way to force administrators toRead more
Hallmark announced on Monday a new line of wrapping paper. Instead of using tape , this paper is self adhesive and Hallmark claims the wrap is “sticky enough to create clean lines and crisp folds without leaving any residue on the gift“. I couldn’t resist testing these claims – so I headed to Hallmark Gold Crown (the only place it’sRead more
Part of the lure of a being on holiday is the ability to get away from all of your tech distractions. But if you’re reading this site, then you’re probably like me and derive an inordinate amount of enjoyment from having all of your toys and gadgets with you wherever you go. There’s a lot to be said for puttingRead more
I just missed posting this review in time for Texas’ Spring Break, but it should still be timely for everyone who plans on traveling this summer. I’ll warn you now though, in order to use this product you’ll need to give up one of your vehicle’s cup-holders.
Why would I ask for something so uncivilized?
Because by giving up a
John Richards, Director of the Windows Live Platform, has announced that “Today Microsoft is announcing some significant developments to the Windows Live platform that demonstrate Microsoft’s commitment to data portability and giving users a choice of how to use and control their information.”

You’ll have to forgive me, as I was feeling too lazy to burn and then mail thousands of CDs out today. But I thought you all might like to listen to some of my favorite writing music, made possible by Muxtape.
The cool thing about this is that the playlist might not necessarily stay static – I can edit it
Trust me, I’m really trying my best to quit hauling around so many gadgets in my backpack. A 13” MacBook, power cable, mouse, 2 pens, iPod, iMuffs wireless headphone, JawBone headset, a smartphone of the week, Tekkeon battery charger, various cables, business cards and a legal pad are my bare minimums. Oops! I forgot the digital camera! What was IRead more
The Easter holiday delayed the delivery by a few days, but never mind, my new unlocked BlackJack II is here! I’ve had it for less than 12hrs but I wanted to post my first impressions of the device.
• Looks great. The glossy black body is more stylish and “hip” than the original BlackJack. The new design is less
I’ve been shopping for a used car. I know exactly what I want. The problem is getting it.
The vehicle I want isn’t common in my area, so I turned to the Internet to find one. What’s I’m finding, however, is that outside of buying via ebay, the shopping experience varies widely.
Ever feel paranoid about dropping your MacBook? The smart guys at Case-mate have a simple, yet effective solution to keep a grip on your 13″ Apple bundle of joy.
The Case-Mate Handle-it for MacBook is an easy to install handle accessory for your Apple notebook.
I’ve always been a big stickler for keeping my gadgets protected. I’m pretty proud of my iPods being fingerprint free for over a year now in its protective casings by DLO and OtterBox.
With the investment in laptops, it’s a wonder why people don’t use a lapcase case, especially with all of the choices available these days.
Case-Mate has come
