Why all the hand wringing about the Surface RT not running the same apps as Windows 8 desktop? Tech blogs all over the place are lambasting Microsoft for not making it clear. Outside of the 5-10% of the population that writes or reads tech blogs and computer magazines, do consumers actually know the difference or […]
A new 13” Macbook Pro was released this week. Faster, lighter, thinner, higher res (retina), etc. An amazing piece of equipment with a really cool commercial.

More like a big fat iPod than a tablet, but handy anyway. + Google Play Store, GPS, small and pocketable (a little […]
What I thought this website might be 5 years ago… doesn’t matter now. I like gadgets – usually end up buying more of them than I should, using them for a while, then selling them on eBay and getting another one. It is not a horribly expensive way to go unless you keep them too […]
