For the past week, I’ve been grousing over Michael Arrington’s sudden about-face in regards to the website Klout.  For years now, Arrington has been happy to relegate Klout to the pile of irrelevance, and I was in agreement with him.  But then he released this blog post last week that not only says he “likes” […]

Dyson DC35 Animal vs DC34

Last week, I told you a little bit about my journey to find a “useful” vacuum cleaner.  My requirements were simple:  The vacuum *needed* to work with no shortcomings or frustrations, and I wanted it to be battery operated.  I ended up extensively testing two Dysons and a Shark.  Today’s video goes over some differences […]

Dyson DC35 Animal: Ease of Use Demonstration

I recently went on a hunt for a vacuum or vacuums that would accommodate my hectic life.  The older I get, the shorter my days feel, and sometimes I find myself looking for an edge.  In this instance, I was looking for a vacuum that was cordless, light weight, and would get the job done.  […]

Conan O’brien Wades Into The Apple Vs Samsung War (Video)

It looks like Team CoCo might be Team Apple after this video from one of his recent shows. Astute observers will notice that the “British guy in the black shirt” is an allusion to Apple’s design chief, Jony Ive.  What do you think?  Funny, or meh?

My Twitter Follow Policy

In recent months, I’ve learned that if you don’t provide people with information, they’ll try to guess the answers on their own.  They won’t contact you and ask for you to fill the blanks in; they’ll just make assumptions and then act on them.  In light of that, I’ve decided to go ahead and post […]
