Julie's comments are in Black, Judie's are in Blue and italicized. Mobius 2005 was held at the Edgewater Inn in Seattle, Washington this year, and other than a jaunt to race go-karts at Champs on the second evening, we were predominantly on the 3rd floor of the hotel most of the time. The first night [...]

My Windows to Mac OS X odyssey started way back in the Spring of 2002, during the heyday of Apple's Switch campaign. A friend at work had given me a demo of his Titanium Powerbook, and it wasn't long after that I placed my own order for a G4 TiBook. Once it arrived, I was [...]

Name: Ellis DeGuzman Location: New Jersey Gadgets are my life. It's kinda sad, actually, thinking about the things I've done for my gadgets, but I would have to say that it's all worth it :-D. How did my gadget obsession start? Well, it's a long story, but I'll tell it anyway. It all started when [...]

Name: Michael M. Location: New York, New York I think I’ve got a problem. I’m waiting for the day that my loved ones invite me to a sparsely decorated hotel conference room to confront me about that problem. I have a gadget problem, and it’s gonna take a whole lot more than some hackneyed intervention [...]

Name: Terry Pan Location: Hong Kong I am a copywriter in a full-service ad agency. My gadget story is a bit unlike the past gadgeteers. It’s about a process to find out the BEST gadget that fits my need. Once I find a gadget good enough (at least for a certain period), I will stop [...]

Name: Mike Oetting Location: Kansas City I suppose it all started nearly 10 years ago in 1996 with the launch of the Palm 1000. I remember reading the press leading up to the launch of this product, and I was hooked. I thought it was the first PDA which seemed to have a fair amount [...]

Name: Terence Wong Location: Sydney, Australia This picture is of me and a Sentinel from The Matrix exhibit at Warner Bros Movie World in Queensland, Australia.

Like many of you, I have seen countless email advertisements over the past couple of years touting everything from a FREE $250 gift card to a FREE laptop computer. Generally, these ads will make promises of how one can get something for doing essentially nothing, like by trying a product and getting a few friends [...]

Name: Dave Hawkins Location: Reading, UK I’ve always been interested in gadgets of all types and have worked my way through a wide range of personal organizers, PCs and communications devices in the past. Because of my particular circumstances I guess my requirements are slightly different from some people. During the day I work for [...]

Julie's comments are in Black, Judie's are in Blue and italicized. Read Part 1 here and Part 2 here. Friday Julie and I overslept! I could swear that the alarm clock was set correctly, but it's possible that neither of us even heard it when it went off. In any case, by around 9:30 we [...]

Name: Curtis Hinson Location: Texas, USA I just read through a few of your Gadgeteer profiles and thought I fit your profile. My first meetings with gadgets were back in the middle 80s when my family got a Tandy computer with an 8088 in it. I had some experience with electronics and programming as a [...]

RSS Feed Primer Article

It's funny how some forms of technology can be around for years before some of us ever really notice them. Case in point: RSS feeds. Most of you have probably heard of the term RSS before. Some of you are probably even using it. This article is for that group of people that have heard [...]

I am 14, and live in Vancouver, Washington. [...]

  The unthinkable recently happened to me. I had my Tungsten C stolen from me in broad daylight. Hope was lost. Fortunately, thanks to a past Gadgeteer article “Insuring your Gadgets” I had added a ridiculously cheap (far cheaper than a good case) endorsement in my renters insurance policy for my Palm, so it was [...]
