Barnes and Noble vs Borders

Barnes and Noble has always been my preference when it comes to big book stores, their organization scheme was the first that I knew and has always seemed “right” to me. But a dark, dark shadow has loomed over Barnes and Noble’s welcoming organizational strategy, the dark shadow that is a lack of plugs. They […]

Losing It, By The Numbers

It has been four days since I got back to San Jose, only four days, and already I’m about to implode. In these ninety-six hours, I have accessed the internet twice outside of a coffee shop, once at Chris Whipple’s place (an apartment prospect) and once at an old office I once worked at in […]

Bad Motherfucker Redux

A friend, Craig brought up an interesting point in relation to my previous post, “Andy, Motherfucker”, that in reality one would rather be a “bad motherfucker” than simply a “motherfucker,” so it may be in my best interests to be known as “andy, bad motherfucker.” A search for that, at the moment, brings up a […]

Cool Labs Stuff from Etech

I’m at Etech and they are about to start the “From The Labs” section. They’ve always got tons of cool stuff to show for these things, although it will be tough to beat Applied Mind’s dynamic 3D topographical map. Microsoft is talking about storing all data from somebody’s senses, as it should only really take […]

Andy, Motherfucker

During a recent stint of self-righteousness and Googlejuice measurement, it came to my attention that searching for “andy, motherfucker” did not bring up my blog. I know, I know, it boggles my mind as well. How could Google, our omniscient and peaceful master not see the obvious connection between those two words. Andy. Motherfucker. Come […]

Katamari Damacy or Why I Am Cooler Than You

He was the Japanese equivalent of an indie rock star, the kind of guy who made an album because he thought it would be fun to do only to find out everybody else loved the same things as he did. His game had just been bought by a major publisher, money was surely rolling in […]

My Ideal Fight

Whenever I am walking home form work, I am usually crossing a street after the walk light has changed to green and a car coming from the other direction (towards me in the lane nearest me) decides it wants to make a right turn before I get across the intersection. Frequently, it tries to beat […]

Let’s Go Surfin’ Now, Everybody’s Learning How

Come on and safari with me… My coworker Jennifer and I had to fight to the death over who got to use that title on their blog post after reading about the discovery of a giant frozen sea on Mars. Actually, she’s the one who started singing… so I guess I owe her all the […]

Why Aren’t There Any Good Phones?

As noted in my last entry, my phone has taken a bit of a stumble. Boris was kind enough to let me use his P800 while I work on getting it back up to speed, and Dick lent me his P900, but all in all it has been slow rolling. It took about 20 minutes […]

Does Anybody Have A Spare T610?

I have a Nokia 6600, it is the coolest phone I’ve ever owned, but it will no longer sync with my Mac via iSync. Recently, whenever syncing contacts, it brings up a spurious “Low on memory” error. I have done everything I can think of to make this damn sync work, including formatting the phone […]
