  1. July 2013

    Well I have some time to blog as family time has become more consuming. Work has become more demanding and last week my wife gave birth to our first child (daughter).

    Being a first time parent is extremely demanding. Thank goodness I have the rest of this week off. I chose to take
    the late night/early morning shift to help the wife get some sleep. I told her I'll go Midnight-7am if she can do
    7am-230pm. We'll see how it goes... She has to pump every 2 hours, so she makes ...

  2. What color is the sky in Redmond?

    So, yes, I'm not entirely pleased with the new Xbox One, particularly in that they are locking all games to your ID and console, much like Xbox Live Arcade games today. One truly amazing thing, though, is how deluded they are in thinking there's absolutely nothing wrong with this.

  5. Review: Lenovo U410 (Part 2)

    DISPLAY: The screen is the U410ís other weak link. (The keyboard being the other.) A resolution of 1366x768 is standard for ultrabooks and laptops at this price, so I canít really fault Lenovo for not exceeding the standard. But, my Dell 6000 had a 1680x1050 display and that was six years old. Why hasnít the industry pushed for better resolutions? Why are laptops lagging behind tablets? (Googleís new Nexus 10 is 2560x1600!) For whatever reason, you cannot find affordable ultrabooks with nice resolutions. ...
