As a kid, I was a dreamer. I spent hours looking into the Radio Shack window, always dreaming of what I would do with a Tandy TRS-80 and all the peripherals I would buy. We were never able to afford that stuff then, and by the time I got to undergrad, I had lost interest. When I went back to grad school 5 years later, and I had to buy a PC, that little kid from Radio Shack came out again. It's been some 11 years, 40 laptops, 11 smartphones, and 9 Tablets/TabletPCs/UMPCs later. I have gladly joined the Carrypad team and hope that at least a little of my commentary is worthy of consideration.

Posted on 05 December 2011

I have only had my Amazon Kindle Fire for about four days. I have admittedly spent a lot of that time in my Amazon account on a PC setting up my account to access more services and content channels than I have been using in the past. I have also not had much time to […]

Nokia: More Relevant in the US Than Ever (Maybe)

Posted on 04 November 2011

Nokia has only been relevant for me once in my smartphone life, and that was when I was overseas. Since returning stateside, I have not given Nokia news more than a miniscule glance as I pore over the day’s tech reports. In fact, I have not honestly cared about a Nokia phone release since the […]
