Minor Tech Makeovers: Cheap Tricks to Make You Think You Own a New Gadget

Minor Tech Makeovers: Cheap Tricks to Make You Think You Own a New Gadget

Spring is great for a lot of reasons. I can finally sit next to an open window without shivering. (I’ve found through VERY scientific research that I can stand about an hour and a half of 50 degree weather in a t-shirt before I get way too cold and have to close my window.) Baseball is on almost all the time, and I ...

When is it Time to Upgrade Your Mobile Tech?

When is it Time to Upgrade Your Mobile Tech?

I have an iPad 2. I don’t use it very much, but it’s there for me whenever a new game comes out … or whenever my Macbook is just out of reach. The iPad 2 came out on March 11, 2011. In the grand scheme of things (and I’m not talking about the “cosmic calendar” from “Cosmos”), three years is nothing. But ...

How to Use Google Like a Pro

How to Use Google Like a Pro

Google is great. We all know that. But do you know how great it is? (Really, really great.) Like I said a couple weeks ago, if you’re only using Google as a traditional search engine, you haven’t begun to scratch the surface. Google can do so many things that it even has an official site dedicated to tips and tricks. ...

Xbox One and Post-Titanfall Depression

Xbox One and Post-Titanfall Depression

Titanfall is great. Like really, really great. It’s the Xbox One’s best game and the most fun I’ve had with any next-gen game. I can’t say whether it’s worth a $450-$500 investment (if you don’t own an Xbox One), but it’s certainly the most convincing argument to jump into the new generation of video game ...

Five Sites That Will Save You a Lot of Time

Five Sites That Will Save You a Lot of Time

The more time you spend on the internet, the more you realize that some things should be a tiny bit easier than they actually are. Here are a handful of sites I use a lot to make my day-to-day comings and goings on the internet a little bit easier, quicker and less stressful. (1) isup.me (aka Down for Everyone or Just ...

Checking In: Xbox One and PlayStation 4, Four Months Later

Checking In: Xbox One and PlayStation 4, Four Months Later

This is a very big week for the Xbox One. We’re four months into the new console generation, which means two things: It’s too early to tell who’s “winning,” but … … we still have a good idea of what’s going on. I’ve been meaning to re-visit the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 since I first reviewed ...

Viral Marketing and the Mystery Behind HUVr

Viral Marketing and the Mystery Behind HUVr

I love viral marketing. There’s something awesome about a company bucking the traditional path of advertising their product and going in a completely new direction. Whether you’re pushing a hit TV show, deodorant or a pointless movie remake, there’s something inherently charming to me about doing your own ...

Twitch Plays Pokemon: Nine Million Monkeys Trying to Write Shakespeare

Twitch Plays Pokemon: Nine Million Monkeys Trying to Write Shakespeare

“With an infinite number of monkeys and an infinite number of typewriters, one will type Shakespeare's plays." -- Émile Borel. There’s a fascinating social experiment currently underway right now: Up to 75,000 people are “playing” a single game of Pokemon Red over on Twitch.tv. In the five-and-a-half days since ...

Facebook’s ‘Paper’ is the First Must-Download iOS App of 2014

Facebook’s ‘Paper’ is the First Must-Download iOS App of 2014

If you’re (a) on Facebook and (b) have an iDevice, you need to be using Facebook’s newest app, Paper. There’s no two ways about it. Paper (or, more formally, Paper – stories from Facebook) is a complete re-invention of the way you interact with Facebook. Gone is the clunky Facebook app we’ve come to know and ...

How Amazon Prime Can Avoid a 50 Percent Price Increase

How Amazon Prime Can Avoid a 50 Percent Price Increase

Few things give me more “bang for my buck” than Amazon Prime. For $79 a year, I can one-click shop to my heart’s content, and never worry about hitting a Super Saver Shipping minimum or wonder when my stuff will arrive. Free two-day shipping, $4/item overnight shipping, no minimums … it’s hard to complain about ...
