Microsoft Surface Studio PC

The Microsoft Surface Studio

Microsoft’s new all-in-one desktop PC – the Surface Studio – is an absolutely gorgeous computer. If I had a home office and $3000 burning a hole in my pocket, I probably couldn’t order this computer fast enough. I’m not a digital artist or anything like that, so I don’t really have a burning need for […]

On Headphones

How important is the headphone jack on your phone? Until recently, that was a question many of us had never considered. I mean, why would we? In the 29 years that I’ve been on this planet, I have used many different devices, but no matter what device I was using – be it a portable […]

Sorry Apple, I’ll be Keeping my Kindle Fire

As you know doubt heard (and it’d be hard not to), Apple released they’re latest iPad to the masses yesterday. Since I’m basically the gadget nerd at my office, I had several coworkers ask me in the last week whether I would be ditching my Kindle Fire for the Retina Display goodness of Apple’s tablet. […]

Steve Jobs

I’ve been spending the last week pretty much glued to my new Kindle Fire, which is to be expected. It’s shiny and new and therefore requires my attention for many hours of the day. However, I’ve been using it more for one activity than any other, which has been unexpected (though honestly it shouldn’t have […]

Apple, iPods, and Apathy

For iPod users, this time of year is akin the Christmas. September is always New iPod Season, with music and gadget geeks alike waiting, wallets open and ready, for Apple to reveal the latest and greatest iPods. In case you didn’t know, today was that day. I was able to watch the event live thanks […]

Not The Droids I’m Looking For

My boss told me today that she’s getting a Droid Incredible soon. I have to say I’m incredibly jealous (no pun intended). As I mentioned a few months ago, I’ve been trying to decide what smartphone to get soon. I’ve pretty much resigned myself to buying an iPhone 4, but I’m still very drawn to […]

iPhone OS 4.0: The Future is… Soon

Last week, I wrote about Apple’s imminent announcement regarding the next version of the iPhone OS.  Well, Jobs has since shown his hand and it may actually be a winner. Multitasking, Game Center, and Folders all look to be great additions to the platform. I can’t wait to try them out on my iPod Touch […]

iPhone OS 4.0: Hopes for a Better Smartphone?

Once again, Apple has something up their sleeve. Today, just a few days after the release of the iPad, the company is going to reveal the details for the next version of the iPhone OS, which powers not only the iPhone but the iPad and iPod Touch as well. I’m an iPod Touch owner myself, […]

Off to the Apple Store

Tomorrow, that is. After further review, I’m thinking I may want to buy the revamped 6G iPod (Classic) rather than the touch. The main reason is HDD space. Currently, I have 6.9 GB of music in my library, excluding another 0.5 GB of Podcasts (mostly Grammar Girl) plus whatever videos I decide to add. In […]
