The Brilliance of Simplicity

The Brilliance of Simplicity

I have always admired businesses who thrive on a simple concept/idea. I believe that if you do one thing really well you can make a good living doing exactly that. I have recently come across a couple of products in this category that I just had to blog about. The first product is something I […]

Ultimate Dinosaurs / The Science Muse...

Ultimate Dinosaurs / The Science Museum of MN

Today we visited the Science Museum of Minnesota to see the Ultimate Dinosaurs exhibit. This was our first visit to the museum and I have to say I was really impressed with the facility. Not only is it huge and filled with awesome exhibits but it was also extremely well kept and easy to navigate […]

iPhone 5 Review

iPhone 5 Review

One year ago today, I posted a review of Apple’s iOS 5.0 and now a year later I am back w/ a review of the iPhone 5 running iOS 6.0. After spending a week with the iPhone 5 I have really grown to love it. I upgraded from an iPhone 4 (not 4S) so the […]

iOS5 Review

iOS5 Review

After months and months of waiting, iOS5 is finally here and I am very happy with the new features and functionality. The update did come with its share of woes for some users who reported that the update process failed multiple times, bricked their device, etc but fortunately the two devices we updated the night […]

In this article you will find […]

Initially I really disliked Lion for the simple reason that Spaces was gone and Command Center functions quite a bit differently. My biggest complaint was that Spaces […]

MacBook Air Thoughts & Review

MacBook Air Thoughts & Review

I spent the last couple of days playing with the brand new i7 MacBook Air and I have to say it is an incredible piece of hardware. The form factor is perfect and the speed/functionality is unlike anything I have used. I am a happy owner of a 13″ MacBook Pro (Core2Duo model) but the […]

Google+ Thoughts and Review

Google+ Thoughts and Review

I have been using Google+ for about two weeks now and I have to say I am really impressed with the service. There are a few things that I want to highlight because in my opinion they are what make G+ great. The first is the integration with Gmail. Not only do you see a […]

GitHub for Mac

GitHub for Mac

GitHub just launched a GUI client for OSX and I am ecstatic. Git/GitHub are fairly easy to work with from the command line but having a GUI client for managing local/remote repositories is really nice. Just launch the app (see above) and you will be presented with a clean, simple and functional UI. Your repositories […]
