You Must Have the Day One Journal App

While I’m in mood to rave about things that really work (Yesterday I just wrote my post about the Movi Freefly Personal Cinema Robot.), I want to talk about a piece of software I’ve been using since it first came out: the Day One Journal app. This is the most awesome journal software I’ve ever seen, and I’ve just about… Continue reading

Those Photo Apps

New photo apps that heavily process photos get me almost every time! I have to try them out. I’ll never understand the digital magic under their hoods. Perhaps that’s the reason I feel so drawn to them? So here are some experiments from today’s photo apps download of the Prisma app for iPhone. (Despite what you may find, there is… Continue reading

My Profile Selfies of Late

Thought I should share a bit about my last few profile pictures. The above is my latest selfie. I decided to try something radically different: partial face focusing on one eye without my glasses. It sort of works. I say sort of because when it’s tiny, next to a Facebook comment for example, it looks kind of weird, as in:… 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

Sonos Wireless Audio System – Amazing!

I’ve been working with the audio, security, TV installer guy for the better part of 3 weeks to install/enhance the media and security systems in the house. The all house audio system and the surround system for the main TV really sound shockingly great. (I had no idea how much I would enjoy streaming music throughout the house with decent… Continue reading

iOS 8: Now, That Just Ain’t Right!

Get ready… I was sitting here working away when my new phone rang, the one with the new 415 number. Only one person in the whole world knows my new number right now, and the person calling wasn’t him. How did this other person, who I know, get my new number? I checked my old phone, which was still on… Continue reading

My New iPhone 6 Plus

Initial impressions about my new iPhone 6 Plus Above is a screenshot from my iPhone 6 Plus’ home screen1. So here are my reflections on the plus after having only had it for 2 days: Size: It’s big! It’s too big for me to hold comfortably in one hand and simultaneously use it with that hand. Size: It’s big! I’m… Continue reading

Changing Mobile Carriers

I’ve had an iPhone since they originally were introduced seven years ago. I actually waited in line for several hours at the Apple store in Lenox mall, Atlanta, Georgia. I posted about that experience back in the day. I’m one of those few remaining users who got AT&T’s unlimited data plan. But I’ve always hated AT&T1. To me, they have… 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

Apple iWork ’09 Download

I have moaned and groaned before about Apple releasing new versions of software they know does not contain all of the features of the previous versions: feature regression.1 Apple did the same thing with iWork ’09. The very latest versions are designed to work on iPads and in the more common browsers (on any platform) for shared (cloud-based) use. To… Continue reading
