  • I Want the Galaxy Nexus

    Me want: Galaxy Nexus Review (by The Verge). I’ve been waiting for this phone for quite a while. Believe it or not, I’m still on a basic phone, an old LG Dare. I’m not really into Apple products so I never went for the iPhone but when Android smartphones started to come out, I felt…

  • Rain Go Away

    Rain, go away, you’re ruining the US Open!

  • Summer Doldrums

    Except it’s not. I’m busy as freaking heck right now and have been for the last 2 months. I wish there were more hours in the day and I had gotten more sleep this weekend, so I wouldn’t be so tired right now. I’m behind schedule on a lot of work and feeling a little…

  • VoIP Incoming Call Routing

    I use a company called Viatalk and since it’s a VoIP, it comes with a lot of free features that either aren’t available with landlines or you have to pay extra for. I especially love the Incoming Call Routing feature that Viatalk has. It gives you a lot of flexibility in handling incoming calls from…

  • What Scares Me About This Election

    Electronic voting machines. Stephen Spoonamore is a cyber security expert who’s a lifelong member of the GOP and he’s been saying since 1998 that electronic voting machines are completely insecure. It’s a relatively trivial thing for people who know what they’re doing to hack the vote and leave absolutely no trace behind. He explains this…

  • PayPal Phishing

    I recently got a spoofed email attempting to phish my PayPal account details. I think of myself as pretty adept at identifying phishing emails but this one came at just the right time. This email came from PayPal’s abuse department, indicating that there was some recent suspicious activity on my account and provided a link…

  • I Hate People Who Park Their Car Selfishly

    It really peeves me when I see people parking their car on the street taking up 2 spots when they could’ve easily moved their car forward or back to make room for another car. Such inconsiderate behavior really ticks me off. I have a female neighbor who does this ALL THE TIME. Her car is…

  • Casio EX-Z75 Faulty Battery

    I purchased a Casio EX-Z75 digital camera about a year ago and for the most part it’s been working perfectly and it’s a very good camera. However, I didn’t use it for about 2 months or so and it seems the rechargeable lithium ion battery is dead (it’s a NP-20 battery). When I try to…

  • Century Eggs

    I remember seeing an episode of Fear Factor a long time ago where they ate century eggs and all the contestants were getting grossed out. I thought it was pretty ridiculous because I think century eggs are delicious. Either Fear Factor purposedly prepared the eggs to smell / taste really bad or the contestants were…

  • Happy New Year 2008

    Well it’s my first post of the new year and I’d love to impart wisdom or some useful insight into life but I don’t really have much to share. So let me just say I hope this new year brings good things to everyone. Idleness is the holiday of fools! That’s my motto and it’s…
