I can't hold it in any longer. I'm experiencing some serious cognitive dissonance here with some of my recent choices regarding technology. Back in the day, I was a hardcore dedicated DOS guy. Between running my own BBS (it was called The Laughing Dog. I need to dig up some of my ANSI/ASCII art one of these days) playing Doom over 2400 baud modem and watching demoscene intros, I couldn't imagine using a Mac. I ridiculed the PowerMacs we had at my high school -- they simply felt sluggish and limited to me.

In-ear headphones are truly a dime a dozen. There's everything from super cheap, sub $10 'phones that just barely get the job done, to insanely expensive models such as the Westone 4R, clocking in at a cool $499.

I’ve never been much of a “TV person,” to be honest. Being that I’m not a big fan of scheduling my life around sitting in front of the big screen at a given time, it’s just never been practical for me. However, I’ve gradually integrated television into my digital life using a combination of tools that have been around for a while (TiVo), Internet-based streaming services (Netflix), and a method to discover what shows I want to watch.

We live in a world of apps. Apps are everywhere and lie at the core of most of our mobile computing lives--especially when it comes to tablets and smartphones. Lesser known is the ability to install apps on network connected devices, such as network-attached-storage (NAS) products and other equipment.
