Life in the Palm of My Hand

I have been eyeing the Palm Centro since it came out but was only recently able to put hands on a review unit. But before I get into reviewing it, I feel I should warn you of two things: 1) I like Palms. I have been using one version or another since the original PalmPilot Continue Reading

Did I Drink the Cool-Aid?

I’ve been putting this post off. The problem is not the product I want to review here—the Sony Cyber-shot T2—it’s me. I’m afraid I’ve been brainwashed. I spent two all-to-pleasant days with a group of bloggers, Sony staffers, and outrageously fun photographers at the delicious La Valencia hotel in La Jolla, California.

Kill Your Television!

I am a fan of projectors. Mostly because I think TVs–even flat panel ones–are obnoxious, ugly, and take over the living room. I have not had a TV in my house in at least 5 years and I never intend to buy another. Projectors are polite and demure. They only display movies or TV when Continue Reading

Geek Girl Bling

I don’t personally own an iPod but I know I’m in the minority there. Still, I don’t even normally covet one because I love my Napster To Go account where I can download as much music as my heart desires for a flat-fee of $14.99 a month. Apple won’t allow Napster To Go on their iPods so Continue Reading
