Smart watches are stupid

Sony_Smart_watch.jpg

I keep seeing more and more stories pop up about smart watches, but I really can’t see a device like that being even remotely attractive. It’s interesting to me that companies like Sony are even going after anything having to do with a watch. I haven’t worn a watch in so many years; I can’t …

Microsoft_Surface_corporate.jpg

Hey corporate workers! It seems like every blog out there has an opinion [even mine] about the success and failure of Microsoft Surface, but I don’t think anyone is really covering the fact that Microsoft Surface is going to allow employers to get some free work time.

I’ve always said that having 2 monitors in a work environment is better than one.  The simple fact is that you can see more information on the screen at one time, which makes you more productive. A couple of years ago, I wrote an article about purchasing an USB adapter to allow you to connect …

It’s really funny that if you look at the history of the personal computer, the keyboard is probably the longest standing friend to the personal computer and it seems to be pretty well-established; and damn near impossible to get rid of… Watching the race of touchscreens, portable devices, smart phones and whatever else comes along; …

PC’s and laptops aren’t dead- no matter how much its being reported

ul0dzyeq.jpg

I hear people say all the time about how they need to buy a tablet or they need to get a touch screen. When I hear this I just smile. Technically, we’re just on the cusp of touch screens and tablets. And while tablets and Smartphones are undeniably powerful, they don’t have the power of …

The new Facebook Messenger – but do you need it?

I was kind of surprised to see this new application/feature of Facebook being offered to everyone. I mean, did you happen to notice the pop-up window in the bottom right-hand corner?
