Thoughts On Smartwatches

I used my first smartwatch in 2008, reviewing the Sony MBW-150 (made by Fossil). It was a simple watch, essentially a ‘normal’ watch with a small LCD display embedded in the face, which would scroll various messages from my smartphone. My second smartwatch, the Pebble, was bought years later, in …

LG G Watch First Impressions

A Quick Note About Social Imagery

Working in social media for the past 5+ years, I’ve seen various types of content rise and fall in popularity. I remember, while working at RadioShack, when we began to see that image-centric social content was significantly more engaging than text-only. It took us a couple of months to figure …

Wednesday Watch: A Year Of The Selfie

One of the things that today’s mobile consumer is known for is the selfie. This is a photo taken of yourself, usually using the front-facing camera on your cellphone. There are variations of the selfie, usually based on the facial expression that one is making in the ‘selfie’. For the …

With Smartphones, Case = Cash

With the shift from post-paid to pre-paid, the resale value of smartphones becomes an increasingly important factor.

Podcasts I Recommend

Since I started my new job at TripCase, my commute went from about 15 minutes to about 50 minutes – quite the leap. I’ve actually been enjoying it, having finally discovered the time to listen to podcasts again. Over the past few months, I’ve explored quite a few podcasts, and …

Otterbox Commuter For HTC One M8 Review

A few weeks ago, I picked up the HTC One M8 for my ‘work’ phone. It’s a great phone, but the materials used for the body of the phone, while high quality, are SLICK. I knew immediately that I would need a case, and for me, that meant an Otterbox …

Wednesday Watch: This Way Up

Wednesday Watch is a new series that I’m starting as an easy way to share the various videos that I come across during my Internet wanderings. First up is a great little animated short about a pair of ridiculously unlucky undertakers. It’s only about 10 minutes long, and it’s quite funny. …
