The Apple iPad…Dare I Have Doubts?

OK, so i’ll admit when i first heard about the iPad (I was rooting for the name iSlate)I was expecting a full on-OSX device with all the wireless connectivity, ease of use and that typical Apple “WOW” factor.
And like…lasers.  Maybe  even a teleporter.
I’ll warrant that maybe we’ve all become a little jaded about how cool the iPhone really is, but it seems that this really is a big ass iPhone…without the phone.

Nifty.  So the iPad can serve as a really cool reader, and other than that, the only real benefits I …

Think I finally got the Pictures Page Fixed!

Check out the peace sign with the other hand!
I’ve been struggling with the software recently, and haven’t had the time to really get in there and fix it till today!
I think, however, I’ve finally settled on the format I wanted for the Pictures page, complete with pics from Holden’s first B-day (better late than never, eh?)
I’ll be streamling and organizing over the course of the week, and will definitely be updating at least the photos much, much more often.  Right now the challenge is figuring out how to keep …

Hi.  I’m a Mac.  Was a PC.

OK, so I needed a new notebook, and have always like the whole Mac “thing”, but was always put off with the fact that I could get a faster, better specced PC for less than half the price.  I’ve been using PC’s successfully for many many years now, and I feel VERY comfortable with my level of knowledge and proficiency with them, but I gotta tell ya…I LOVE my Macbook!
I was the guy bashing Mac fanbois for years for their cultlike following and seemingly blind following of Apple dogma complete …

I’m such a geek…

So I finally got my iPhone!  YAY the wait is over and I can stop bugging my AT&T insider about upgrading!  And as a result, have gotten NO sleep at all.
Well, you gotta set up all your stuff and get all your contacts sorted out…clean up your iTunes library mess around on YouTube you know.
Of course it’s kind of ridiculous because, well I’m at home with a computer hooked up to my big screen and a wireless keyboard on my lap. But instead, here I am looking like quite the knob …

2006 Mazdaspeed 6

In Japan, it’s known as the Atenza. In Europe it’s known as the Mazda 6 MPS.
In my driveway, it’s known as Fujin (Japanese god of the wind), and I LOVE this car. It’s got the perfect blend of practicality, power, safety and luxury that I was looking for, and there are VERY few that meet my stringent criteria. Other models I was considering were the Subaru Legacy 2.5 GT, Audi A4 2.0t, Mitsubishi Lancer EVO VII, Subaru STI, and the Infinity G35x, but for some reason I …
