Obviously this didn’t come from grandma’s house. The Gramophone came from Restoration Hardware a couple of weeks ago and acoustically amplifies the music from the handheld device you place in the slit. It actually works amazingly well. The sound travels into the hollow bottom and then out the metal horn shape. It gains a slightly vintage sound. I love it!
I was sitting here working away when my new phone rang, the one with the new 415 number. Only one person in all of the world knows my new number right now, and the person calling wasn’t him. How did this person, who I know, get my new number?
I thought the characterization of video shot on the 6 Plus as “cinematic” was going to be a marketing overstatement—simply gross hyperbole! No. It’s not! The video is buttery smooth, beautiful, stable, gorgeously fluid. Shocking! Simply shocking!
So when my friend Mark told me that they were changing from AT&T to T-Mobile, I decided to give T-Mobile a careful look. I was, unexpectedly, pleasantly surprised by the aggressive plan T-Mobile is offering to increase customer market share to switch mobile carriers.

I occasionally actually overhear conversations about the next big thing all around the bay area. After all, this is the epicenter of the tech industry. In this post, I’m going to let you in on what I think “the next big thing” is going to be! Reflecting on the Recent Past Back in 2003 – 2004 […]

It’s amazingly fast, and Final Cut Pro actually runs on it without the horrid beach ball spinning every time I attempt to do anything! I think I’ve pretty much set up everything, though I’m sure I’ll bump into a […]
I read, or a friend of mine suggested—I don’t recall which, that we are in a golden age for television. Numerous excellent programs are available. So, I’ve been thinking about this: Are we really in a golden age for television programming? As a child, we had to center our schedules around our favorite TV programs. If […]
Over the years I’ve made numerous purchases (tens of thousands of dollars) from B&H Photo Video in New York City. They have good prices and a quick turn around. Additionally, I immediately save 8.5% because they don’t bill sales tax. On January 14, 2014, I ordered a totally decked out new Apple Mac Pro. They said it […]
I’ve been rather quiet on the blog front for a couple of weeks now. I’ve been busy at work on my blog behind the scenes. Very busy indeed! But I’m now back to posting. Welcome A2! I’ve spent the past several weeks switching hosting companies: from MediaTemple to A2. My experience with MediaTemple between March […]
