My first computer was given to me in 9th grade, which was a laptop running Windows 98. Before that, we had rented a computer for word processing from a Nebraska agency, which ran Windows 95 and had a dot matrix printer along with it. Being one of the relatively young Gadgeteers, you may laugh at [...]

NY-Travel-Show-01

Fellow gadgeteer and friend since college, Jackie Cheng and I recently went to The New York Times Travel Show here in New York City. We are both fans of traveling and see the sights, so we figured let's check out the show and see what exhibits were on display.  We were also super excited to [...]

When asked to participate in this series I was reluctant, actually I am reluctant, mainly because my writing area has been declared a mess by certain individuals in my household.  But then again, I subscribe to the old saying that "if a cluttered desk is evidence of a cluttered mind, what does an empty desk [...]

Recently, Julie asked for us to show our desks and what's on them. With mine, there is not much to tell. I’m an art director by day and freelancer by night, so my desk is usually strewn with all kinds of junk. Add to that my passion for all things audio, and I keep pretty [...]

GTG Phone case-1

We have talked about wallets, pens and bags. These are what I would consider everyday carry items, so let's continue with another everyday carry item - your phone and what you use to protect it. For me, I have two carry modes, everyday and heavy travel. For my everyday mode, I am using a tech21 [...]

I know that this is a series about each of the Gadgeteer members’ desks and what things we use to do our work, but since I have just started as a Gadgeteer, I will also show you where I do my homeschool teaching. To begin with, science and technology are in my blood, but so [...]

I already told you about my spiffy elfa design-it-yourself desk.  (Check the related links at the end of this post to find the original post about my desk.)  Since I built that desk, I've moved to a new house, and my desk easily disassembled and reassembled at the new place.  It looks like it was [...]

Hi, my name is Mark Rosengarten and I have a problem.  It's a gadget problem.  It's an addiction and has been as long as I've been aware that there was such a thing as a gadget.  In fact, I have been an avid follower of The Gadgeteer since it got started, it has always been [...]

So, Julie started this "Show us your desk series" and I thought I would add mine to the list. As you will see I don't have the same amount of cool bric-a-brac that Julie posses, but then again she has been at this longer than I have :) . What you do get to see [...]

I have been a writer here at the Gadgeteer for over a decade. Hard to believe it has been that many years. It all started with a tech question in an email to Julie that led to her eventually asking me to join the team. I believe there were only four of us back in [...]

I must say that I’m pretty satisfied with my workspace, having tailored it to my needs over six years as a remote home office employee. What you see above is the “electronics corner” of the room. The photo doesn’t include a massive (and messy) desk directly behind the chair; nor another corner with filing cabinets, [...]

In this installment of my-go-to-gear, we look at wallets. Oh the art of carrying things in our pockets. Wallets have become an art form these days, have they not? I remember when there was just simple bi-fold or tri-fold wallets made out of leather in either black or brown. My how times have changed, not [...]

This is a quick tip for all my fellow Android users. Have you noticed that your Android smartphone is always warm to the touch or that your battery life has taken a nose dive? When I was using the Samsung Galaxy S3 as my primary phone, it would often feel warm even when I had [...]

Next in the list of my go-to gear are writing implements.  I think I mentioned in a previous review, that I believe writing by hand has become a lost art form. That does not mean it will go away, but now days we are just as likely to see stylus-to-tablet as we are to see [...]

In the last couple of months you have seen some obvious changes to this web site. At the end of December we rolled out a brand new layout and at the beginning of this month we moved to a faster and more powerful server. I've been running The Gadgeteer for close to 17 years now [...]

grandfather-clock

A few weeks ago our 25 year old grandfather clock stopped running. We tried restarting it multiple times by swinging the pendulum and it would run for 30 minutes or longer, but would then stop at some point. We had a clock doctor come to the house to clean the clock 7 years ago and [...]
