Upgrading My iPhone Part Four: Using My Osmo Mobile

Weight I prefer using the iPhone X (6.14 ounces/174 grams) with the OSMO Mobile because it’s noticeably less heavy than the iPhone 6s Plus (6.77 ounces/192 grams) I’ve been using. This should slightly improve OSMO battery life. The iPhone 8 Plus (7.13 ounces/202 grams) is heavier than my iPhone 6s Plus, and is actually the heaviest of all of these… Continue reading

Why I Just Canceled Spotify

I learned that Spotify just updated their Terms of Service (TOS). Like Facebook, they want as much information about me as they can get. They should change their name to Spotispy. For example, they now are collecting: Where you are 24/7 How fast you are moving Your contacts’ information in your address book All of the media files on your… Continue reading

Some Tech Recommendations

  Waterlogue I guess you can now say that I officially live in Atlanta. We went walking in Piedmont Park where I took the quintessential “Atlanta” photo of the mid-rises reflecting in Lake Clare. The photo turned out nicely. In fact, the photo turned out so nicely I turned it into a watercolor using a new iOS app I recently… Continue reading

Ultimate Ears 18 Pro Custom In-Ear Monitors

Yes. I finally did it. After years of lusting after them. I gave in. I treated myself. A (very cool, bright, creative…) former student has UE as one of his clients. He bought a pair of the Ultimate Ears 18 Pro Custom In-Ear Monitors and posted a photo of his new pair. I made the huge mistake of commenting about… Continue reading

Our (Brief) Tesla Ownership Experience So Far [Updated]

Since I’m going to say some critical things I want to start out by saying that we love our Tesla Model S. However, ownership has not been without issues. So, I thought I would share the good, the bad, and the ugly. Hopefully, this will help Tesla improve their customer ownership experience as well as assist potential buyers in making… Continue reading

Greece/Denmark: Day Nine — Exploring Copenhagen 1

We spent most of the day today with Tim, a high school friend of Steve’s, originally from the UK, who spent a couple weeks living with Steve’s family back in the 1970’s as part of an international exchange program. They had not seen each other for 36 years (1977). Tim met his wife, now deceased, who was from Denmark, while… Continue reading

Crystal Surround Air Track = Cool Beans

I’ve spent the past week-and-a-half putting together a little condo in Decatur. Pictures are coming soon, but not too soon so as not to spoil the reveal! (I feel like a renno TV program or something.) One of the purchases: a Samsung Series 7 7100 LED TV. I love Samsung’s SmartTVs! They are so thin (less than an inch deep),… Continue reading

My Über Christmas Gift

Yes, I’m known as a geek, and I frequently get “geek gifts.” I wasn’t expecting this one at all. It really is interesting. I just now got to play with it. The small device connects through bluetooth to another bluetooth device (my phone in this case) and projects a keyboard with a laser. It also makes a tick sound when… Continue reading

Meet Chloé.

Yes, I knew it was only a matter of time. Chloé has now replaced Watts, my wonderful little 2006 Prius. Watts had less than 29,000 miles on him when he was traded in today. He averaged about 46.5 miles per gallon. This means that Watts burned about 624 gallons of gasoline during his time with me—far less than the vast… Continue reading
