Xbox Meh

Posted on May 21st, 2013

So I tried to follow along with the live blog of the Xbox announcement today. Nothing really excited me. That's not to say it isn't cool, or that I'm not going to buy one. It's just that nothing really jumped out and grabbed me. I don't think the problem is that it isn't cool, or doesn't have a pile of new stuff. I think the problem is that it...

Bitcasa - a Different Kind of Cloud

Posted on May 19th, 2013

I've started several blog posts about Bitcasa since I began beta testing it in the middle of last year. Most of these posts were rants and concerns however and I felt it wouldn't be fair to post them without giving Bitcasa some more time to fix their problems. I also didn't want to start talking about it or recommending it to friends before it w...

Understanding App Store Pricing

Posted on April 1st, 2013

As an independent Software developer you face a lot of challenges. One of the biggest is not having the resources to hire people to do the things you are not that good at doing.

Google Glass is an interesting project. We have only begun to scratch the surface of what this technology can do. Most people haven't even heard of it yet (it's not even close to being an actual released product), and already people are lining up to fight against it. What has them concerned is the potential privacy invasion that will come with d...

T-Mobile the un-carrier?

Posted on March 26th, 2013

So T-Mobile had their new contract free roll out and also announced that they will be carrying the iPhone. Is this really going to shake up the carrier industry? I really can't say for certain that this will change the world, but I think the idea of contract free is great. Any anything that puts pressure on the other carriers to loosen up has ...

How about a blog powered by Evernote?

Posted on March 26th, 2013

Do you know what would be a great idea? How about a blog powered by Evernote? I mean, I already keep everything in Evernote anyway. All my blog posts live their until I'm ready to publish them. What if I could just tag them and they would automatically be posted on my blog? I think I'll jump right on this idea and make a product. Oops, too late...

Getting Rid of Paper with Evernote

Posted on April 11th, 2012

I am a long time Evernote user. I’ve been using it since 2005, back when it was only a Windows client and there was no online service component. One of my favorite uses for Evernote is to get rid of paper. In this post I’ll show you some of the ways that I use Evernote to eliminate paper storage. Indexing One of the great things about Evern...
