PHP. Like a virgin.

November 6, 2011

PHP. For the very first time. Hard to believe after all these years I’m doing some PHP.  It’s dangerous and seductive. Simple. Dynamic. Very much like C, which I have done a ton of over the decades. But not like C. I’m making all the rookie mistakes and I’m sure they will pass with time. So honestly […]

Apple TV

October 25, 2011

Cracked it? One thing I’m wondering about the Apple TV speculation that I don’t know why hasn’t been mentioned. Make that two things. Why can’t the TV run iOS and therefore Apps? Think along the lines of a kind of augmented reality TV. Or how about being able to use touch on your TV? Like the MS […]

Buried in our phones

October 21, 2011

I was sitting in the Whole Foods Pub the other day and I could not help but notice how we are all buried in our cell phones. Or should I say we are all buried in our Smart Phones. I guess there will come a time where we don’t have to speak at all. There was […]

Kiss my…for a change

October 10, 2011

Time for a rant. If I’m buying and your the prospective vendor why don’t you try to go out of the way and tell me why I should use you. I’m not asking for much. Am I? Instead I’m feeling it is the reverse. Economic times are bad for me, but guessing they are just […]

Ted Dziuba

October 7, 2011

Go read Ted Dzuiba’s Blog. I was just reading a bunch of his old posts last night. Great stuff and a must for us programmer designer types. He’s a bit of a curmudgeon and uses the F work once in a while, but it is a hard core wake up call. He urges simplicity and not to […]

Steve like Moses

October 6, 2011

Last night was elation to utter sadness in only the course of five minutes. First we found out our Kickstarter project (more on this later when we get it up for listing) got approved. Then five minutes later a text from a friend that brought the night down hard. Steve had died. When I see […]

Rock Climber

October 4, 2011

I saw something on 60 minutes Sunday night that blew my mind. I know it doesn’t take much, but it was about a Rock Climber named Alex Honnold. The crazy part is that he doesn’t use ropes and he is climbing big pieces of granite like El Capitain. He lives out of his van and […]
