I scored the new iPhone 13 Pro

Well, I really bought last Friday (9/24/21) but I wait several days to execute the migration over from my really good Xs due to last weekend being pretty busy. It was also my first time doing the iPhone-to-iPhone migration since … Continue reading

Pre-Cursor to the iPod in 1975

In adjusted dollars, this would cost 200 smackers and you’d still have to provide your own facial hair, blow-dry coiffure, patterned shirt and the bell-bottoms we can assume he’s wearing. It’s amazing how much we’ve managed to miniaturize headphones to … Continue reading

We’ll add not the killing people feature in an update

Obviously, this plays into our upcoming fears about Artificial Intelligence but I think near-future computers will just kick back and wait. We’re doing a pretty good job on our own poisoning the planet.

Shmow-zow! It’s Enchiridon Day!

If the numbers on the back of the famous Fantasy manual are a date, then yes, it would be today! However, it’s only a coincidence because eight, 13 and 21 are part of the Fibonacci Sequence if you’re going from … Continue reading

One hundred days of learning Italian!!

Italian is what I’m primarily learning. I’m also picking up bits and pieces of Spanish while also refreshing my French. Why though? It all started with my friend Jeremy who lives in the Netherlands. Thanks to Amerika finally shedding its … Continue reading

Five Million Steps!!!

I started tracking my steps in 2019 when I found this pretty cool, free app for my iPhone/Watch. I would’ve achieved this much sooner if it weren’t for the pandemic since my daily walking around my work campus would’ve doubled … Continue reading

Let’s see Red Amerika solve this

What’s wrong with this picture, July 2021 Edition

What’s really frustrating is that America is capable of doing both. We don’t need private asshole-billionaires (who don’t pay their taxes) trying to claim the Moon and Mars as private property. I won’t disagree with the criticisms from the Sixties … Continue reading

2006: Twitter begins

Austin is testing pizza-delivery ‘bots

The robot mostly made the news because it would be using the bike lanes in downtown Austin which might stir up our vocal cyclist community. I think the robots resemble a miniature Zamboni®. I couldn’t find out who the robots … Continue reading

Made it to the Solstice 2021

Jennifer isn’t a fan of the Sun since she prefers to hit the sack around the same time old people prefer to. It’s mostly due to her job as a nurse; she wakes around 3:30 AM and shows up by … Continue reading
