So sweet. I had to login to Reddit just to upvote the rant and comment.  Instead of reprinting the text, I screenshot it for justice.   The basics of this is someone ranting, and rightly so, that a grilled cheese is ONLY bread and cheese.  You add anything else and its a melt.  Now one may… Read More


Sculpting in VR is nothing new.  Actually, very little in VR is new, instead its what happens when things get lighter, faster, cheaper.   Back in the 90’s we could create sculptures and move walls around in VR but it was very cumbersome, lacked the high feedback fidelity required to really make sculpting in VR productive… Read More


I just saw this on reddit, dated Sept23.  This is really scary.  I just checked my meter and I use around 100g a month, but what if comcast decides, hey lets do more cost levels, say 50g, 100g, 200g.  THEN what?  Anyway, here is the text from xfinity themselves.  BTW, notice that you can save… Read More


Ok, that was horrible and I should be bludgeon with a heavy brass object, however, once I explain what xTV is, perhaps you will forgive me a little bit. “ok, fine then, what is xTV?” XTV is a internet video service for the enterprise. (IPTV) But it’s not useful to just enterprise users.  Imagine you have… Read More


Here is a great life hack.  If you do not need ice for your drinks, then put something else in there.  Like candy!  Of course you can put fruit or mochi or anything else that is small and taste good either frozen or just thawed.  I can see berries or grapes as well.  I wonder… Read More


It was announce through Forbes that Microsoft is planning on releasing a watch in the next few weeks.  No solid news on what it will look like yet, but my bet is that it will look somewhat like the LG; clean, simple square.  It is reported that it will have bio metric tracking as is… Read More


There are two ways to write a pebble app, use c code and release to the Pebble store, or as I have done with NewsSnacker, write in JavaScript and release to the Pebble app store.  They only problem is Apple has not released an update to allow iOS users to install apps written in JavaScript.  … Read More


I took the 540 spin drive out of a new cheap laptop and decided to put an old SSD in.  Yes it totally makes a differnce.  However, when trying install off the USB drive, windows would not see the SSD I just installed.  After a number of trying and lots of searching, I found the… Read More


As it has been reported, the battery life on the Moto360 is so poor you cannot even for a full day.  However, there is hope.  The most recent firmware update had improved the battery life significantly.  So much so that users are reporting more then a day usage.  This assumes you are not using ‘always’… Read More


I got this via email and thought I would share.  Looks cool enough.  Basically local navigation on your Pebble.  Right now, its iPhone only; I do not know if there will be an Android app (I asked) but I will update this post when I find out. Where To? 7.0: iPhone local search app completely… Read More


Its been 24 hours since the Apple Watch debut.  Now that we have seen more pictures of the watch and learned a bit more about it, I think I can finally give my impressions.  This of course is tempered by the fact I have not seen it in person and there are still things we… Read More


My first coded pebble app.  I’m using Pebbles new beta javascript system, so even though it was very easy to code, there does seem to be an issue when hitting the ‘select’ button to go from story to story.  Hopefully this will get better. For iOS users.  Right now you cannot download from the Apple… Read More
