Wednesday Watch: The Last Goodbye

All these years later, after both the Lord of the Rings trilogy and the Hobbit trilogy, it’s fun to go back and revisit these movies. What better way to do so than with a song sung by Pippin himself? The Last Goodbye, as sung by Billy Boyd (who played Pippin) …

Wednesday Watch: Best. Tree. Swing. EVER.

It’s official: the “tree swing” ante has been upped. Officially, don’t try this at home. Unofficially, I fully expect at least 3 of you to not only try this yourselves, but to spend some time trying to figure out how to make it even better. And I sincerely hope you’ll …

Wednesday Watch: The Landing

Wednesday Watch: Death and the Robot

On a dying world, the cloaked personification of Death and a robot have one thing in common: They’re both extremely bored. But when they finally dare to come out of hiding and meet one another, they change not only each other, but their world.

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 …

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. For most people dropping $400-600+ on a new phone isn’t something they can do frequently. For me, this means that I need to sell my current phone on Craigslist or eBay or something …
