This is going to be a little nerdy, so if you bail, that’s fine.

I’m really, really getting sick of Android as a prevalent mobile OS.


And to get it out of the way, when I say “webOS”, people, I’m talking about the Palm Pre. The Veer, TouchPad, Pixi, Pre2, and Pre3. Okay?

AT&T and Verizon both came out a long time ago against the notion of Network Neutrality. They really, really want to pipe bandwidth to “special customers” who can pay for it, and limit bandwidth to those customers who can’t…primarily because it’s a revenue stream.

My car stereo will play MP3’s off a CD, but it plays them alphabetically. Which means that the only way I can get them to play in the order I want is to prefix them with a value I want. This program does that. Here it is. Download it. Download it right from here!

Okay, so my old, exceptionally expensive laptop’s graphic cards blew up. Don’t work. Then my desktop died. Thankfully, in a pinch of spend craziness, I bought a sub-400 dollar netbook last year (MSi Wind, great netbook by the way)…and I used that to get myself a job. Had two offers on the table, one was […]
