Well, let me go on a bit about the end of this. I am considered to be an old person by the standards of your community. I am an older listener of the podcast in my 40's. What this weekly podcast has done is basically opened me up to alternate ways of looking at technology, trying new products and changing buying and… » 4/04/14 10:37pm 4/04/14 10:37pm

Here is a tip, if you are doing some home theater configuration, and you plan on burying cable in a wall, ensure its good cable. Nothing is worse than re-doing cable in a wall. Its kind of obvious, and it has nothing to do with performance, just nuisance factor. » 3/27/14 1:23pm 3/27/14 1:23pm

I know its a small annoyance, but not being able to get to a 3rd tier in Evernote is a stupid limitation. I use these tools for a daily journal, and the simple task of tracking Month, week and day in nested tabs is logical and I can't get around the 2 tier limit of evernote. » 3/25/14 2:07pm 3/25/14 2:07pm

I'm always baffled by the "head in the sand" approach by religious people. If something is so false, then why are you threatened by the mention of it? Probably the same reason I whisper about Santa at Christmas. Because I know if you should reason it out in your head eventually that Santa doesn't exist, but I don't have… » 3/13/14 4:27pm 3/13/14 4:27pm

Word of warning. These prices rarely ever stay consistent. I recently had to trim a 50 gB Storage plan to 10 when a year-long promotion ended with a different vendor, major headache. Another note on Google specifically is that it reserves the same drive size on your local machine as your virtual drive space, So 1TB on… » 3/13/14 11:26am 3/13/14 11:26am

How about we cut every ancillary thing like young people who made online videos nobody saw "Voices of tomorrow" I think was the segment. Then we cut the lengthy introductions for the best pictures. Voting was done, who cares to see a 3 minute clip of the 9 nominees. Then let anyone who had 3 or more credits (FILM… » 3/03/14 3:32pm 3/03/14 3:32pm

For the ios and Google stores, I love the ease of use; however, I have to do a lot a research away from the store to figure out what the app does and how it works. Ratings and opinions are fine, but I need product detail before I get to reviews. » 3/03/14 9:15am 3/03/14 9:15am

Let me also chime in to tell everyone who is just now or recently getting apple lightning to usb cables. yes, you can get them for dirt cheap on monoprice or amazon. They will work for exactly 2 months. Apple devices can tell the power coming through a cable and will not work if its not their cable you are using. Heed… » 2/27/14 2:36pm 2/27/14 2:36pm

OK, here is a question that has been perplexing me lately. How many people are actively committing piracy in the world when it comes to Media (Movies, TV, Books, Games, Music, etc..) I look around BT and all the BT Tracker sites and see a few thousand people involved per torrent, but what does that equate to? I guess I … » 2/26/14 10:58am 2/26/14 10:58am

I think its funny that we categorize the 240hz refresh rate as looking "Fake" and a "soap opera" effect when its much closer to reality than what your eyes are typically used to. The other way with the much slowed down frame rate is what is actually fake. It tricks your mind into actually slowing down to process images. If … » 2/20/14 9:29am 2/20/14 9:29am

Well I have a couple pieces of advice. First, is to learn that a job is a means to an end. If you aren't out of school or on your career path, you need to pay bills and have some extra cash and thats about it, then don't treat it like this sacred thing. My first job was an office job where I drove 30 miles to get… » 2/20/14 8:22am 2/20/14 8:22am

I don't want to get into a Jimmy vs. Conan vs. Leno thing, what bothers me is that there is still a large section of the country that keeps the TV on from the 9pm show, to the news, then onto the Tonight Show, and if you mess with that, they loose their minds. Meanwhile, everyone under the age of 30 watches TV 100% on… » 2/18/14 10:27am 2/18/14 10:27am

The first thing you have to recognize is the reason you are in a bad job to begin with. Are you the problem? Is leaving just going to move the problem with you? One thing I would recommend to people is to do the following: Constantly Train in any and everything you can. Every month, visit your resume, and look for jobs … » 2/14/14 7:46am 2/14/14 7:46am

You can't go to work every day at the auto plant making cars and sit at a planning meeting on the fuel system with a guy who believed it runs on children's laughter. Every time you get near the subject he corrects you with this and shuts down the conversation. The answer is not to hold a meeting where we are going to… » 2/05/14 10:37am 2/05/14 10:37am

I would go the amazon route at first. One other thing you might consider if you haven't already done this is at least pay someone to edit your book professionally. Given the amount of print media that has died it can't be too hard to find someone willing to freelance edit your work. Editing can spell the success or… » 2/03/14 11:25am 2/03/14 11:25am

The primary one I would have to say is the Homebrew Wii hack articles of 2010 and 2011. It opened up an entire new frontier of easy gaming console hacks to me. So, in a way, you are responsible for a massive amount of piracy....sorry » 2/02/14 11:36am 2/02/14 11:36am

for 15 years I thought my brother in law was really health conscious until I was on a family lake outing and one of my kids grabbed his bottle of Ozarka water by mistake. Turns out he had been sneaking vodka for all those years. » 1/29/14 1:57pm 1/29/14 1:57pm
