If you remember that expression, you just carbon dated yourself to the 6th century B.C. But no worries, I remember it and the yellow happy face, and “The devil made me do it,” and the yellow happy face with a bullet hole. Jeeze. The 60’s were such odd times.
“Here come the fuzz” was a derogatory phrase about the police … Continue reading
Like most people, sometimes I see what’s coming, but sometimes I don’t. This piece is a shot in the dark: what I suspect is coming to our rather-near future. It just seems to make sense to me as various indicators point in the same direction.
In our hyper-connected society, more and more teenagers are choosing not to get their driver’s … Continue reading
Corporations are about maximizing profit. I get that. For all of its brilliant “Think different” marketing, Apple is, in fact, no different.
Years ago I watched a documentary about the first MacIntosh. Several people who were on the team that put the original machine together were interviewed. One of the guys, I forget his name, spoke of how bottom line … Continue reading
Last month I reviewed the YOPO lens kit for the iPhone 6+/6s+. You can read about that at this link. I was terribly dissatisfied with the quality of the images the kit produced. To be frank, they were just so poor as to be unusable.

When I really need a quality shot, however, I still bring out the Canon glass, but the iPhone creates … Continue reading
You assholes are getting what’s coming to you! And you more than deserve it! You and your absurd 300GB bandwidth limit! Your horrific phone system. Your wretched customer abuse masquerading as support. Frankly, I hope Brian L. Roberts, CEO of Comcast, loses his fortunes, that all of his good employees go to work for Google and Verizon, and … Continue reading
Short version: Unless you are wanting to play a few games on your TV, or unless you want to cut the cable cord, the new 1st gen TV is a total pass. Version 1 of the tvOS is, as has become standard practice for Apple’s new products, a big step backwards. The foundation they have set in place has potential … Continue reading
