I bought my dad an HP Chromebook 14 on Woot. Then they showed up on Woot again a month or two later and I got one for my wife. I haven’t changed my opinion of Google (no privacy) and still lean toward Apple and Microsoft products.  My dad has a gmail account and so does […]

How to Delete a OneNote 2013 Notebook

I was looking for a way to delete a notebook from OneNote 2013 that is stored in OneDrive.  Found some links, but nothing that was clear worked, and everything else was unclear.  A few steps make it very easy: 1. Close the notebook in OneNote (right click > close notebook) 2. Navigate to your online […]

Surface Pro 3 vs MacBook Air

I use Windows 7 and 8.1, IOS, OSX, and Windows Phone 8.1 pretty much every day at work and at home.  I also use my Kindle Fire HD and Fire TV as needed for reading and movies (love Amazon Prime).  I’m a little obsessed with gadgets and rotate them through to keep up with the […]

Lumia 520 is Showstopper Example of Price/Performance

Internationally, Windows Phone has growing market share.  IDC, Yahoo News via BGR, and an outfit called Kantar WorldPanel have been quoted all […]

Nokia Lumia 1020

I went to see the Lumia 1020 at the local AT&T store. The quick plusses compared to my Lumia 920: Thinner Lighter Excellent low light camera – they have a neat display box with various light to test it yourself The price is a little high, but if I didn’t already have the 920, I […]

Raspberry Pi

I’ve been fiddling around with the raspberry pi and an old Atrix 4G laptop dock.  Lots of people show how to hook them up on the web, and if it wasn’t a little cumbersome with the cables it would qualify as a super thin netbook. Still haven’t decided what to make out of the raspberry […]
