Facebook ‘Camera’ App Review

I get a bunch of news releases in my inbox everyday. 98% of the time I delete them. But I was surprised to see one from the agency repping Facebook (one of them, anyway). The release talked about its new Camera App. ‘Kate’ let me know that the new app enhances the Facebook photos mobile experience. The biggest difference between ‘Camera’ and your iPhone camera is that the...

Increase local storage? iPhone message

The other day I was on my Safari browser on my iPhone 4 looking over a Twitter profile when a dialogue box popped up asking: “Increase local storage? Do you want to allow the website to use up to 10mb of storage on your iPhone?” I thought it was a virus, but I was on Twitter, so I was a little suspect of being suspect. After poking around, I was surprised to find how little was...

Someone is saying bad things…

I just got another one of these urgent, life-altering, panic-stricken email notifications from one of my followers on Twitter. Dang, not again. Why all the hate? It’s all a scam.

Ramble on

I’ve updated the look, feel and functionality of my blog. What was once, is now – a look at life from inside the TV news business. So, in essence, it’s time to Ramble On as Led Zepplin once preached:
Ramble On, And now’s the time, the time is now, to sing my song.
Thanks for checking out the new blog. I hope to update it often.
