Today is simply way too hectic for me to devote the time I need (and want) to do either a full MacBook Pro unboxing pictorial or video…and it’s killing me! I want to open my box! Since I have a Samsung camcorder review due next week, I should probably do a video, right? That [...]
Once again, we invite you to eavesdrop on our email conversations… Wayne: R.I.P. … the Internet slays another print publication… Mitchell: I was a subscriber to PC World for about 5 years, and then I realised that I was paying for a magazine with content that I had read weeks earlier on the internet. It [...]
The term “mid-size,” when used to describe an automobile, is a bit misleading these days. Today we take a look at a pair of recent “mid-size” sedans we have driven recently. One is celebrating a half-century of production this year and the other is a rebadging that should have been done several years back. Both [...]
Think you’ve got lots of hard drive space in your notebook computer with a 250 GB hard drive? Well, think again. 500 GB notebook hard drives are coming. Thats right, all the top players in the notebook hard drive industry have recently released 500 GB hard drives for installation in notebook computers; Samsung, Fujitsu, and [...]
Chris Spera called me the other day while I was driving my Alfa. We talked for a little bit, but then I finally had to admit that I was driving a stick shift in traffic, and holding my mobile phone to my left ear was a little bit tricky…since that was the hand I needed [...]
Two years ago I disconnected AT&T (formerly SBC ) and replaced them with Vonage VOIP (Voice Over IP) phone service. The sound quality is amazing and it routes every call over my internet connection. A month ago my good friend and fellow consultant Mark Chinsky started raving about Visual Voice Mail from his Vonage service. [...]
Well, CeBit 2008 is underway, and that can only mean one thing: No, Gizmodo is NOT running around turning off televisions (we presume). No, it means a lot of your favorite device manufacturers are making significant announcements, and Navigon is not to be left out. We have reviewed some of Navigon’s older units (sorry folks, [...]
Now alot of people will ask, what’s so different about Linux that makes it better then Windows? Well, alot of things really, but I think the best thing is the community. Ubuntu listens to the community and it’s even listening more now that Ubuntu has setup the Ubuntu Brainstorm website. Brainstorm is where Ubuntu users [...]
Mike Cane just sent this, and it almost made me spit Diet Coke onto my laptop’s screen. I’m not sure why it hit just right, but I bet it will put a smile on some of your faces, too… For the record, Mike’s email subject line said “OMG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1″
In my haste to bring you the exciting news about the upcoming IS-F luxury sports car from Lexus, I nearly overlooked the fact that we were in the Mobile Bay area recently to get our first impressions of another new vehicle from Toyota’s luxury division, the LX 570.

I received the UltraLapSR today and here’s the unboxing! It took a while to get here, but that’s because Zareason does the right thing and thinks of the customer first! Walk with me as I unbox this beauty! Building Linux hardware so you don’t have to. I like that!
For several months I have needed to take my MacBook Pro in for repair. Some of you may remember the ExpressCard that melted inside my MBP, due to a faulty motherboard. I’ve also noticed an increasing amount of grey pixels on my display, very annoying during normal use, and even more so when editing photos [...]
One of my goals is to work more productively when outside the office. I’ve already done away with Microsoft Office and Microsoft Exchange in favor of working “in the clouds” via the suite of Google Apps. The only problem with working in the clouds — is you need clouds (aka an Internet connection). To accomplish [...]
