On the bench with back problems

I had been working on a great project with the State of Minnesota (more on that in a future post), when on July 3rd my right leg stopped working.  Well it worked, I just couldn’t move it without screaming at the top of my lungs. I was in St. Paul, MN for most of that…

My iPhone 3G Review

Call me a traitor.  Call me weak minded to the Apple Jedi mind trick.  Yes I have a 3g iPhone, the cheapest one of course. My Treo 750, which I really liked, was starting to have some battery fade.  In addition, I was using the IE browser on my Treo more frequently, with more and…

New Role for Mhass

No.  Is the PS3 a cheaper and better Blue-ray player than stand alone players?  Yes.  Not only is it the cheaper or the same…

HD-DVD going the way of Beta Max?

It is starting to feel like HD-DVD has lost.  With Transformers only available on HD-DVD, I thought there was a glimmer of hope, but I am pretty sure the fat lady is singing. Why?  Disney. I think Disney was the camel that broke the straw back.  It is really frustrating that I can’t buy my…

CES: Monday Afternoon

So, I am here at CES 2008, I got a last minute push to come out for some meetings. I don’t plan on doing a blow by blow like Engadget, but I might post some cool stuff I see.  I am not actually at the show yet as I have some meetings to attend after…
