"Silicon Valley's Dark Secret: It's all about Age" has my mind spinning. Many thoughts. Too late to comment. #

Mini Mid-life Crisis — Go Fishing

The entire weekend I thought about how much I’ve been working lately. I’m out of balance, and unfortunately for those around me, I’m cranky. Tonight I sat reading (and/or looking at pictures) “50 Places to Fly Fish Before You Die,” and I realized that I’ve only been to ONE of the 50. Worse yet, I […]

Carriers and Device Manufacturers: Consumer Enemies

Regarding Android updates to Droid owners, Jared Newman at PC World goes on to recognize other manufacturers struggling to get Froyo to consumers: In fairness, Motorola’s not the only company to struggle with Froyo. Owners of HTC’s Droid Incredible are still waiting for their update — rumors of August 18 didn’t pan out — and […]

Digital Recluse: the New Internet Famous

While I was reading Paul Carr‘s blog post, “Thnks Fr Th Mmrs: The Rise Of Microblogging, The Death Of Posterity,” I had a flash back. The quote the stuck out for me was this: “… in an age when everyone and their dog is sharing every aspect of their life, being a digital recluse is […]

I agree with Dan — RIM should move to Android…Quickly!

55 Page Agreement

Apple updated their software license for iTunes and so I was greeted with a 55 page agreement on my iPhone. I’m guessing 95 percent just click agree. I can’t imagine more than one (1) or two (2) percent of people go past page page three (3). I wonder if this makes the lawyers happy? Why […]

I'm watching history repeat itself over and over again in the Mobile space. Unlike other markets, the mobile space is moving much more quickly. So the history lessons come faster. First there was Palm. Remember all the miracles that were going to happen with Palm? A new OS is coming? A new magical hardware device […]

I wonder when (or if) I will stop laughing at the movie The Other Guys. Will Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg were brilliant. # Contact Cleaner…No, "Contact" Cleaner #

Contact Cleaner…No, “Contact” Cleaner

There are moments that I am reminded there us a world on the outside of technology. I forget that often. Today a Google search reminded me. I have three or four contact databases that I want to merge and cleanup–sounded like a good project for the weekend. My Google search for Contact Cleaner, however, produced […]

Picture proof anyone can start a business–financial results may vary

Tonight I did what other bored business travelers do: I looked through the SkyMall catalog. I found some amazing new and exciting profits. Two below reminded me of how anyone with an idea can start a business. I truly wonder if my 14 year old daughter would ever wear (or be seen wearing) this handy […]
