The pretty things that Sony make

The pretty things that Sony make

It’s a good day when you can go to Best Buy and see a brand new toy from Sony. Sony is introducing its brand new line of 4K televisions. The one that I saw was the XBR-55X900A. My thoughts? Well, this is their 55-inch model, and it was … I’m sorry? Oh, what on earth isContinue Reading

Retail Therapy: TigerDirect

Building your own PC is a double-edged sword. On the one hand, you can make it however you want. Big hard drive(s)? Check. Fast graphics card? Check.

Protect the Keys to your Kingdom

Protect the Keys to your Kingdom

This post is long, but it’s important, so no complaining about the length! It happened again … an email from a website that I frequent and have a profile for has been hacked. A list of usernames, email addresses and encrypted passwords have been stolen from their “secured” servers. So now I go through theContinue Reading
