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

I was just as excited as everyone else when I read on a post via Reddit that a computer program called Eugene passed for the very first time!  Seems a supercomputer running a program called Eugene Goostman passed the Turing test during an event at the Royal Society in London.

The details are still dripping out, but it seems a hacker called ‘Oleg Pliss’ is accessing peoples iPhones by using your Apple iCloud account and invoke the ‘Find My iPhone’ service.’  Oleg will then lock your phone and charge you £55 to unlock it.  There is not much you can do about it right now… Read More

This has been a rough few days for Apple.  A ‘goto fail’ hole appeared in the OS that lets people defect a security server key which lets them do .. well not sure.  From a quick read of the code, seems like if you can get a false handshake to work then depending on the… Read More

I was just thinking...

It did not happen over night.  Back when I first got Brandi, my orange fur ball, I did what most single guys do at the time.  Go to the store and buy whatever dry cat food was on sale.  She was not thrilled with it, but liked it well enough.  And life was good. However,… Read More

This is not new news, SimCity5 has had one of the worse release in recent memory.  As a big SimCity fan, I was sadden that I just could not justify paying for this.  I have been waiting for a good hack that will allow me to play offline, then I figured I would buy it. … Read More

I remember when the Lytro infinite focus camera came out.  I was pretty excited and could not wait to get my hands on one. Then I got my hands on one.  Meh. First, a little background.  The Lytro camera will let you take a picture then let you change the focus AFTER the shot is… Read More

Sigh. I just do not get Microsoft sometimes. Most of the time their commercials are ok, and now and again, they are just pointless fluff as their surface commercials.  Then their latest efforts, we go to dumb bordering on insulting. {Update:  According to TC, they are NOT going to end it. In fact, there is… Read More

Normally when I buy furniture, I do like most people, go the to store, endless number of stores, and hopefully find something that looks good, fits, and in my price range, I buy it.  Well this time I decided to expand to looking online and went with Amazon.  Mistake. I bought 4 chairs and table… Read More

So, like any story, there seems to be 8 sides to this coin. As I just wrote about a few hours ago, Tesla’s founder and CEO Elon Musk claims that the Article written by John Broder in the New York Times claiming that the Tesla Model S was not matching claimed range and in fact… Read More

I was around during the PC wars of the 90’s, watch people piss on Windows when XP came out, then piss on Vista (although Vista deserved it) and then 7, and now everyone is hating on Windows 8 because of “Metro”. Screw off.  While I think the whole apps thing on Apps on Windows 8… Read More

Seriously?!! Apple is already planning on making a new iPhone? If the iPhone5 what such a crash and burn (as alot of people think), shouldn’t they be taking a a little time to improve on some of the features that the iPhones are lacking? Android OS has quite a few things that put them ahead… Read More


I have been using Windows 8 on my 5+ year old PC laptop for awhile now and have been happy enough with it. In fact, I always encourage anyone I know to update to Windows 8.  Its worth it.  The “metro” part of win8 however, has never been of much value to me.  Actually, no… Read More

I wrote a few days after the release of iOS6 that I would not be updating because Apple maps suck and told my readers that if you use maps ALOT, like I do, do not update until they fix it… or until Google releases an app. And they did.   And now people are upgrading to… Read More
