A Few Cool New Tech Products

Tonight I attended a consumer tech show with a ‘70s sitcom theme, complete with Shirley Jones of The Partridge Family. But as cool as it was running into one of my favorite TV stars, I was there to see the gadgets. The Wi-Fi Smart Thermostat from Honeywell, coming out in May, can be controlled from […]

Using Windows 8 Without A Touchscreen

Initially I wasn’t sure if I should upgrade my Sony Vaio Z laptop to Windows 8. It doesn’t have a touchscreen, and Windows 8 was designed primarily for touchscreens. However, since I have a Windows Phone and will be getting a Surface tablet next week, I decided to give Windows 8 a try, to keep […]

My favorite Windows Phone Apps

I’ve been using my HTC 8X Windows Phone for over a month now, and I’ve been exploring new apps and settling in to my favorites. I’ve changed my start screen a bit since I first posted it, and it just keeps getting better and better. Now, I don’t do New Year’s resolutions officially, because if […]

Today’s Agenda: Tech porn edition

I’m at a Microsoft event right now, looking at some great new products and getting more familiar with some older ones. This is the kind of thing that I love. I imagine this is how a lot of people’s brains feel when they watch sports. Gathering some great ideas for holiday shopping, can’t wait to […]

How to wrangle your google calendar for a trip to another time zone

So in January of 2010 I landed in Las Vegas for my very first Consumer Electronics Show. I’d booked wall-to-wall appointments for three days straight and had the most impressively color-coded and organized google calendar ever. So it was quite a shock when I checked the appointments on my phone for the next morning, only […]
