I love working in airports. Yes, there are crowds. There’s noise. There may be a crying baby next to me – but I have some of my peak productivity when I’m sitting in an airport terminal, waiting for a flight. It doesn’t matter where it is (as long as it isn’t O’Hare) or whether it’s […]

A lot of people look back on their college days with nostalgia. I miss my friends and the organizations I used to be a part of, sure – but after having worked “in the real world” for about half a year, there are some things I miss that corporate life doesn’t lend itself nicely to.
The other day, I started thinking about how casually I use technology and how little of my time is spent “disconnected” from the digital world. I wake up, check Facebook/Twitter/Email and head off to the train to go to work – some days I walk quietly to the station, checking my phone every once and […]
For those of you who haven’t heard, Google launched the beta version of a same-day delivery service in the Bay Area called Google Shopping Express. The premise is simple: The stores you know and love now do same-day delivery thanks to Google’s personal service. I decided to give it a try.
Several months ago, I stumbled across this blog post courtesy of a Facebook friend, and it’s stuck with me. I’m the first to admit that I don’t know nearly as much about the small business and start up world as I should, but the article provided a pretty good general overview of leadership principles and […]
Alright. I’ll admit it. My first review was a little over the top with excitement about having a new smart phone. Since I’ve had the chance to use my Nokia 928 for close to three months, I decided that I wanted to do an update review based on some additional things I’ve found. First of all, I […]
Today I started a simple Windows Phone app and ran into a couple of problems with Visual Studio 2012 on the Windows 8.1 Preview. If you have just started out on an app and are unable to run the Phone Emulator, read on for instructions on how to update Visual Studio 2012 for Windows Phone […]
A few months back when Google announced that they were keeping Chrome OS and Android separate, I wrote a blog post about why this disappointed me. Yesterday, when Apple announced the iPhone 5S, I got a little bit of that excitement back. The introduction of the 64-bit mobile operating system gave me faith that my dream […]
My first computer ran DOS. I was 2 years old when I installed my first computer game (I couldn’t say the word “setup”, but I could apparently spell it right) and I’ve been running on Windows ever since. 3.1, 98, ME, XP, Vista, you name it – my personal primary computer is running the release […]
As I mentioned in my earlier review about my Nokia 928, the Windows Phone app store leaves a bit to be desired – no Robot Unicorn Attack? That said, I stumbled upon an app yesterday that completely blew my mind. It isn’t every day you find an app that can read foreign languages better than […]
