Up in the Air: Brickell Corner

A few weeks ago I took the Phantom 2 Vision + out for a little flight time with my fiance’s family. The sun was setting in Brickell and there were plenty of people going about their daily business.

Phantom 2 Vision Plus travel case

When I got my Phantom 2 Vision Plus from DJI my biggest concern was learning how to fly without crashing the thing. That would come relatively quickly (no crashes yet, knock on wood), and now I’m starting to take some great video with the Phantom 2 Vision Plus. But when it came to traveling with the Vision Plus, I have to admit, I didn’t know A) what the rules were for travel and B)...

Up in the Air: Brickell Key

Up in the Air: Brickell Key It was a great night for flying near Brickell Key in Miami, Florida. We had some friends in town from Tennessee along with my fiance’s parents – so we decided to break out the Phantom 2 Vision + Drone and get some good aerial video as the sun was setting.

How to read all your old tweets on Twitter

Twitter is quite a way to communicate, isn’t it!? I love it. But it wasn’t always that way. In 2009, I thought Twitter was childish. Who the hell is going to post two sentences and have it mean anything to anyone? Well, I was clearly wrong. It’s blown up to be how many of us gather news, communicate with friends, family and colleagues, tell jokes, find out drama and learn about...

GeekLift: Spacebar trick, Google power search and CCP hotkeys

What’s a GeekLift? Simple. It’s boosting your geekiness. Since moving to Miami, I’ve seen plenty of face-lifts, boob-lifts, butt-lifts, boat-lifts, you name a lift, I’ve probably seen it. Sure, those things may make you look more attractive (or support that nice boat), but they don’t make you smarter! With a GeekLift, you’re learning basic tips and tricks to...

IRS Cheetahs cancel softball game with GOP’s Team Cornyn

Republican Texas Senator John Cornyn must have been licking his chops to get on the softball diamond and leg out a double to score another run against the IRS Cheetahs. The game was scheduled for today, but was abruptly canceled by the Cheetahs. It could be that the Cheetahs don’t have enough players. We get it, other responsibilities get in the way in life. It happens in softball. Or it...
