a bad Christmas CD with one really good song

a bad Christmas CD with one really good song

Borders store. Rack of Christmas CDs. Erik intrigued with CD. Tried to listen at listening station. Did not work. Decision made to gamble $4. Listened to first four songs in car. First four songs crap. Don’t buy “The Reindeer Room: A Christmas Chillout” unless you like weird techno elevator trance crap. Blog post to be […]

ipad screen as giant camera

ipad screen as giant camera

Let’s get crazy here, real crazy. I want Apple’s iPad to have crazy camera skills. Forget about the silly little pin-sized circle that currently acts as the iPad’s camera. I want the ENTIRE SCREEN to function as a light-sensitive imaging chip. So that 9.7-inch (diagonal) LED-backlit glossy widescreen Multi-Touch display with IPS technology would also […]

cheapest tablet

cheapest tablet

I have to admit I’m intrigued by the $99 Walgreens tablet. It’s the Maylong M-150 Middie Universe Tablet Powered by Android. Certainly the iPad is far superior in every aspect. Yet forking over $500 for the iPad is quite an investment. What intrigues me about Walgreens’ tablet is that someone on a tight budget who […]

living room in a PC

living room in a PC

I strangely feel a very strong connection to this living room in a computer. Perhaps it dates back to my years as a tech guy. Or maybe it’s my pack rat nature crying out. I do have an Apple G3 tower (circa 1999) that I absolutely refuse to toss because I want to convert it […]

lightsabers on the wii rule

lightsabers on the wii rule

I bought Star Wars the Clone Wars: Lightsaber Duels/Jedi Alliance for Nintendo wii. If there’s ever a video game that I’m sucker for, it’s one that has open battles with lightsabers. Game on. Sign me up. I’m not a picky gamer. Heck, I’m not really even a gamer. (Though I’ll school anyone on Super Mario […]

you did what?!

you did what?!

Recently the blog, 30-Year Old Cardboard, featured the 1972 Topps Traded card for HOF’er Steve Carlton. It cracks me up how Topps used the font “Stencil” for the word “TRADED” and they made the graphic extra large. It makes it seem like Carlton is like rotten eggs. Surely Carlton’s expression in the photo suggests that […]

Nikon 50mm for under $30

Nikon 50mm for under $30

Is it just plain crazy that I want to buy a 50mm Nikon lens for under $30 on ebay? I can’t find any under $60. I don’t even need auto-focus. I want a pancake lens for my Nikon FE (film manual focus camera) so it’ll be easier to carry around when I want to take […]
