This happened about 20 years ago, and I am fascinated by the difference between what I thought was true and what the facts seem to be nearly 20 years later. Here’s what the media conveyed to me: A woman drove up to the McDonald’s drive through, bought coffee, put it in her lap, spilled it […]
Friday evening, after Steve got off work, we headed out for an adventure. First stop: Bodega Bay. Lovely evening. Very nice lodge. First thing the next morning, after breakfast and a quick photo or two with the iPhone, we started up Hwy 1 along the coastline of the Pacific Ocean. I just don’t think I’ll ever […]
Well, I’ve completely revamped the navigation system for my entire media collection at TimTyson.us. It has taken a couple of weeks, but I think it’s ready for its official debut! So here are two links: one to the navigation system designed for handheld devices: And the other navigation system designed for laptop and desktop […]

From the iOS Santa Dancebooth app… Hat tip to Fave Cuz.
So I’ve gone crazy with Instragr.am, sending enhanced pictures from my iPhone like a mad man. Now I’ve discovered Viddy, which basically does the same thing for video, although it has some limitation since it’s a new service. (The Facebook, YouTube and Twitter uploads failed. I had to upload it to YouTube through the iPhone’s […]
It’s worth watching the short ad to get to this spoof from The Onion News Network (link). Doing away with kid-friendly info bubbles and colorful photos, new ‘TIME Advanced’ will cater to adults with an interest in news. TIME Announces New Version Of Magazine Aimed At Adults TIME Announces New Version Of Magazine Aimed At […]
