Cable and Satellite TV gives the general public everything they need, when you don’t really know what you need.  And then, they give you more.  More channels are available than you can dream of.  No one (at least no one I know) watches them all.  But, the broadcasting companies know this.  So, they package channels that they know you want, with channels that you probably won’t use, JUST so that you can upgrade your package to another level.

Just finished replacing the downstairs thermostat with the new Honeywell Wifi-Enabled Smart Thermostat. It was a tough call between the Honeywell and the Nest.

I got my Pebble!!  I am loving it!  I can upload from hundreds of watch faces.  Right now, I just chose a basic one.  But, what I love most, is that I get my phone notifications on my watch.  I can see who is calling, read my text message that just came in, or check what that email was.

I’m sorry iPad. As an e-reader, it’s not working out. I’ve found someone else. She is incredibly thin, light, and glows! Kindle just knows what I like.

Its not you, it’s me

Oh my gosh!  Have any of you checked out the new iMac?  Totally killer!  Larger hard drive space, more memory, quad-core processor, 27″ display, higher than HD resolution, smart touch mouse, I can just go on and on!  Check out Apple’s video!

Chillin at Panera

I love Panera Bread Co. I think their sandwiches are a bit overpriced, but their free wireless, open atmosphere, and decor really make it nice.

So, I’m just chillin, getting some work done on my laptop. Love Technology. I can pretty much do my work from anywhere (I said, pretty much). Still have to go to the office today. 😦

My day started early, with a call at 6am, then my weekly conference call at 8:30am, then another call at 10:30am. By then, I was already working on other things, so I stopped by Panera to grab a bite to eat…… well one thing led to another.

Of course, I’m not getting any work done now……….. better get to it.

This is just the coolest thing!  I’ve been watching Johnny Lee’s videos that he’s been publishing for a little while now.  He has really done some cool stuff with the Nintendo Wii remote.

Most of it is 3D stuff, and usually only stuff you would find in movies like Minority Report or iRobot.

He’s turning special effects into reality.  Check this out.  He’s using the Wii Remote to transform a plasma, into a real-life 3D image! He has others, that turn any flat object (table,desk,wall) into a whiteboard.  He can even manipulate the screen using this hands, just like Tom Cruise did on Minority Report, “scrubbing” the images.
