I spend many years of my life writing software, much of that for embedded controls for commercal kitchen equipment. I still get excited when new systems are turned on for the 1st time.

I am traveling internationally this week. For the most part the trip has been great except for some difficulty in connecting to the internet.  For some, that is not a big deal, but I have a serious ‘connection’ dependency. I feel this need to be connected most of the time. I wish it was easier […]

Breaking the Silence:)

I have waited for almost three weeks … I cannot hold back any longer. I have been soaking up everything I can find about the new Apple iPad. I have observed that people are either REALLY excited about the iPad, or they are really turned off by it.  There doesn’t seem to be many people […]
