‘Talk to me on your-jpg.com’ scam

I received a very obscure text message this morning asking me to click a link your-jpg.com. First off, anyone texting me at 5:54 in the morning is either A) working the same morning schedule I am and they’re probably looking to vent, B) they have the wrong number, or C) they’re a lunatic. Regardless, the text I got was from none of the above. Well, perhaps C. We’ll get to that...

Bubba Watson stops by Dubsdread

My girlfriend Tara sent me a great video this morning. We recently moved to Miami from Orlando. While in Orlando, I tried to get out and golf as much as possible. Granted, it was never enough, but Orlando was loaded with great golf courses. The closest golf course to our apartment was Dubsdread, an historic, little public course that is just on the outskirts of downtown. It’s fairly easy to...

Yahoo’s big mistake in buying Summly

The minute I heard about Yahoo’s acquisition of Summly, a news-aggregating website developed by a 17-year-old kid for $30 million dollars, I wasn’t surprised. Wait, yes I was. And all because I looked at the website and watched Nick D’Aloisio’s video and scanned his platform and realized at 17-years-old, the kid had it figured out. He had created an algorithm that had...

March Madness: The ‘Sweet Sistine’

If filling out an NCAA bracket is simply not enough for you this month or March, get holy! Introducing the Sweet Sistine – the top 16 ‘papabile’, or eligible cardinals up for the new title of Pope. Of course, there are 117 cardinals in the running now that Pope Benedict the 16th, (now Pope Emeritus) has retired to his summer home south of Rome to pray and meditate for the rest...

CleanPrint saves trees, consumer stress

In a time of rapid development of new software, apps and technology, it’s common to find ideas that ‘miss the mark’. Sure, there are problems that need solving in this world of technology. Tech has grown so quickly, it’s hard to stay on top of everything. It seems anyone can hire someone to develop a mobile app or a piece of software. Some are even smart enough to do it...

The new Minnesota Vikings logo

I’m biased, but I like Minnesota for a lot of reasons. The weather is nice (4 months of the year). The fishing is pretty good. The air is clean and the people are the nicest I’ve ever had the pleasure to deal with. I also like that fact that we Minnesotans like to ‘keep it simple‘. Case in point, the new Minnesota Vikings logo. It doesn’t look new. Can you tell any...

Poland Spring caught with tweets down

Most Americans like promises of moving our country in the right direction – especially if they’re kept. But not nearly as much as they like a Republican wetting his whistle during a speech following the President’s State of the Union address. It wasn’t President Obama’s plan to raise the minimum wage to $9.00. It wasn’t his plan to put more boots on the ground...

Lots of iPhone 4S parts

Well, my first run at replacing my iPhone 4s screen was a success…somewhat. I ordered some screens from eBay and hoped for the best despite many warnings about what to look out for when ordering said screens. I received the screens about a week later and dove right in on Sunday afternoon. I managed to take apart the phone, and I carefully marked what part went where. It took me about 40...

Pope Benedict’s statement of resignation

In a shocking announcement, the Vatican has reported that Pope Benedict will resign on February 28th, his spokesman Father Federico Lombardi told CNN Monday. Lombardi did not give a reason for the resignation. Benedict, the 265th pope, is the sixth German to serve as pope and the first since the 11th century. He has led church after the third-longest papacy in church history and during a time in...
