Cord Cutting

I am not a big fan of television programming these days with a few exceptions. Fortunatley these exceptions have alternative means of distrubution other than a cable or satellite service. I’ve alternated between Netflix and Amazon Prime. Someday I’ll have to decide. What about news and sports, however? I’ve been testing out a new service … Continue reading Cord Cutting

Digital Tattoo

I was listening to a podcast the other day, and I cannot remember which one or even credit the source (apologies) but it really got me thinking about some of the unforeseen consequences of digital sharing. Everyday most of us put ourselves out there with various posts, tweets, pictures and comments. Let’s not forget photos … Continue reading Digital Tattoo

Twitter 7.0

Today marks the seventh year of TWTTR. As an early adopters back then we didn’t know what we were doing but we had fun exploring it and making it ours.

Chromebook: For Me

The Samsung Chromebook is a fantastic browser with a keyboard. It weighs less than  3 pounds with an 11.6” screen. The 16GB solid state drive is quiet and fast. Boot time is exactly 8 seconds to power on and go. True, 16GB is not much but it does come with an integrated 100 GB of free … Continue reading Chromebook: For Me
