Red Lantern Sheldon Cooper

Or me in real life. Not sure which I'm going as for Halloween but they're kinda interchangeable.

Food trucks at 2013 @DCVegfest

Food trucks are a welcomed addition to DC Vegfest this year. Woodlands Vegan Bistro, The Randy Radish, Everlasting Life, and BONMi.

First meal at 2013 @DCVegfest

Black bean "crab cake" sandwich and chicken fried "steak" with kale and mac & "cheese".

My first bite at 2013 @DCVegfest

Chocolate chip pumpkin vegan cheesecake on a stick. So worth the wait in line.

All systems go for #DCVegfest

Starbucks in one hand, iPhone in the other, and Contour Roam2 on my shoulder.

My doctor has good judgment (in PCs)

At a doctor’s appointment and noticed my doc upgraded his notebook to an HP Elitebook 2760p. Used it in notebook mode the entire visit, but felt reassured by our shared good judgment in computer equipment.

I have so few reasons to wear this shirt.

Waiting to see Herr Metal at Herndon Friday Night Live.

Spycam'd Dennis Kucinich at Poplar Spring

Tanya walked right past them, but I recognized the unmistakable couple.

If I had to lose my superpowers...

...sandwiched between two Rogues is pretty much the best way to go.

This is random

Guy with two smartphones

One for talking, other for reading. Outside a Google office.

Saw this woman U-turn in the intersection...

...to park illegally.

I see a big salad in my future.

Maybe a couple.

Bought a new Motherbored (not a typo)

Assume "bored" refers to holes drilled as there's nothing boring about this piece of jewelry.

I suppose that does belong in the "toy" section...

Only at Target.

FLASHBACK: iPad: Why I won't get one

FLASHBACK: iPad: Why I should get one

Not only do my points still stand, but they’re even more correct three years later. Multi-touch gestures and split keyboard further distinguish the interface. App support is monstrous. Smart Cover is closer to my wedge design. iPad is now the only home computer my wife uses. Contrast that to these losers.

Macadamia Milkshake

Actually a smoothie made with macadamia nut, coconut milk and other stuff. Tasted like a liquid macadamia nut. Yum.

With FreedomPop, I can work anywhere.

And still I chose to be outside in the rain under an umbrella.

So glad winter is over...

Heavier snowfall than I saw all winter. Happy Spring!

Prediction: Back-to-school 2013 will be Chromebook crazy

I'm calling it: PC vendors, backed by a Google ad blitz, will hit this year's back-to-school season hard with Chromebooks for all budgets.

FLASHBACK: Google Chrome OS: Winners and Losers

Took a few years, but with the Chromebook Pixel, Chrome OS is one step closer to the potential I predicted when it was introduced in 2009. Big turning point will be when Windows PC vendors (ASUS, Acer, HP) offer their own high-end Chromebooks.

Marco Arment rehashes my bigger iPhone idea

Marco Arment describes how Apple could release a larger iPhone in addition to the current size. Not bad, but he neglects to address how Apple might maintain even iPhone pricing, as I did eight months ago.

128GB: Why a Streamlined Tablet OS Matters

Two tales of tablets with 128GB storage, one less positive than the other.

Tanya put heart cucumbers in my salad.

Because she loves to feed me things I hate.

"The Perfect Tablet Concept" vs. Microsoft Surface

"a different idea for what we're going to see from Apple in 2013"

Happened upon this post on The Verge forums. Bartosz Misiak thinks the iPad line could split four ways by size and display: iPad, iPad with Retina Display, iPad mini, and iPad mini w/RD. Different from what most expect, but I’d been wondering the same since Apple dropped the 3rd gen iPad w/RD but kept the non-RD iPad 2.

"make things happen"

Just like we had to make things happen on netbooks, we’ve got to make things happen with Windows 7 on slates” – Steve Ballmer, 2010

Today, netbooks are dead, Microsoft did nothing with Windows 7 on slates, and they aren’t doing much better with Windows 8.

"some mixture of voice, the pen, and a real keyboard"
