When I was watching Google’s live event yesterday and heard that the new Pixel 2’s would be going on sale that day, I immediately opened a new tab on my browser and went to check the Google Play store. Sure enough, they were available to order, so I did just that. I ordered the Google… Read More

It’s been three months since I switched from an LG G6 to an iPhone 7 Plus and I’m ready to go back. Big shock right? Three months might not sound like a long time, but it’s the longest stretch that I’ve had with an iOS device in many years.  Why am I switching back? It’s not… Read More

I’m having a first world style crisis today because I think I want to go back to Android. Am I crazy? Well yeah, that’s been established before now. But let me back up a bit… If you’ve been following along at home, you’ll remember that after years of using an Android smartphone, I recently switched… Read More

I left work early this afternoon just so I could go home and watch the iPhone X Apple event in real time instead of reading live streaming commentary from a big site like Gizmodo or The Verge. I started out watching it on my 12″ MacBook but a few minutes into it, I had a… Read More

If you are anything like me, finding something to use as an EDC isn’t always the easiest task.  Often I go through multiple options before finding the device, gadget, bag or in this case pocket knife that works for me.  I have drawers full of failed EDC ideas that didn’t work for me for one… Read More

I’ve been using a checkbook application on mobile devices ever since my first Palm Pilot.
