Putting my “Early Adopter” card back in my wallet … for now …

Putting my “Early Adopter” card back in my wallet … for now …

The problem with being an early adopter is by all intents and purposes you’re the guinea pig. Any issues with the hardware you’re going to run into them. Software? You’ll run into them. Microsoft had to replace 12 (yes, TWELVE) of my Xbox 360’s before I got one that didn’t have any issues. Vizio has replaced myContinue Reading

Return Volley: Microsoft’s Xbox One

Return Volley: Microsoft’s Xbox One

November 22nd will go down in the annals of history as the day Microsoft launched the successor to its extremely popular Xbox 360, and named it the Xbox One. Yeah, I’m not feeling the name, either.

Excuse me, is that your wrist vibrating?

Excuse me, is that your wrist vibrating?

I have a confession to make … I have a watch problem. I love watches. If you follow me on Pintrest, you’ll see the board I have with the most pins contains watches. I don’t know exactly how many watches I have in my possession, but it’s quite a few. All sorts of dials andContinue Reading

The first salvo in the Next-Gen Console Wars goes to Sony

The first salvo in the Next-Gen Console Wars goes to Sony

Unless you’ve been away from any type of media over the last couple of weeks, you’re aware that on November 15th Sony launched its next-generation console, the PS4. Considering over a 24 hour time span they’ve sold over a million units, I’m going to go out on a limb and say it’s looking like a bigContinue Reading

What could be “in your wallet” in the near future

What could be “in your wallet” in the near future

Over the summer, in preparation for a family trip out of the country, I took the time to do something that I should have done eons ago but just never got around to: figuring out what I carried in my wallet. I knew I needed to take the bare minimum, but needed to be sureContinue Reading
