A couple days ago, I announced that I would be trying 2 experiments. Both involved giving up my 13″ Macbook Air in favor of a Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 Android tablet and a Google Chromebook. The plan was to use a devices for 5 full days to see if it could cut it as my […]

Julie’s Gadget Diary – It may be iPad Mini day for some, but it’s Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 day for me!

I’ve been wanting to try the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 for awhile now, and I finally caved in and ordered one yesterday afternoon from Amazon. Thanks to my Amazon Prime membership, shipping was only $3.99 for next day. UPS just dropped it off to me about 20 minutes ago. How’s that for almost instant gratification?

Julie’s Gadget Diary – I think I’m having a mid-life tech crisis

I think I’m starting to sound like the grumpy old gadget woman lately, but today’s Apple iPad mini event did not excite me any more than last month’s iPhone 5 announcement. If you recall, I decided NOT to buy an iPhone 5. I dumped my iPhone 4S and defected over to camp Android with a

I sorta hesitate to post this for the world to see because I’ve been known to change my mind. A lot. After feeling more fizzle than sparkle about Wednesday’s iPhone 5 unveiling, I’ve been going back and forth in my mind about my decision to pre-order one. I have been saving my Verizon upgrade since

If you read my review of the Midori Traveller’s notebook, you might remember that I thought it was insanely priced for just a square piece of leather with a couple holes punched in the spine and some elastic bands to hold it closed. After that review, I ended up ordering a BIG piece of leather

If you read my gadget diary post from last week, you’ll remember that I sent my 3yr old 27″ iMac to Powermax to get credit for a future purchase. They’ve already received the computer, so I’m just waiting for them to complete the review process before they deposit the credit into my account. I don’t

The title of this post didn’t make you think I was leaving Apple and going back to Windows, did it? It will be a cold day in … when that happens. 😉 No folks, I’m still happy to be an Apple addict. But I’m bidding farewell to my 27″ iMac, because I’m trading it in for credit

Happy Birthday USA, you’re looking pretty good for 236! Most of you are probably outside waiting for your charcoal to get hot, but for those of you that are still indoors enjoying the air conditioning and surfing the net, I thought I’d post a mashup article of miscellaneous thoughts, news, etc.

When you live in Southern Indiana like I do, seeing a celebrity is a rare event. Lucky for me, I work for Cummins Inc. and our Cummins Turbo Diesel engine just happens to power the Tornado Intercept Vehicle 2 (TIV 2), featured on the Discovery Channel television shows “Storm Chasers” and “Mythbusters”. This vehicle has been designed to
