Weekend Links #2

Weekend Links is a collection of links that I found over the course of the week. They make for great weekend reading, and come out every Friday, just in time for you to peruse them as you’re trying to find anything else other than work to do. Here’s more data …

Wednesday Watch: Skype Adding Multilingual Instant Translation

In the not-too-distant future, Skype will be able to automatically and instantaneously translate your voice calls to other languages. This will make it possible for you to call someone who speaks another language without having to hire a translator, or fumble through the conversation in broken translations. The technology will …

How Jawbone Is Using Their Data Smartly

Earlier this week, an earthquake rocked northern California in the wee hours of the morning. According to CNN, it was the strongest earthquake to hit the area in 25 years. Jawbone, makers of the ‘UP’ fitness band/sleep tracker, smartly used their aggregated user data to insert themselves into the conversation …

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. …

Moto X – Things I Don’t Love

Now that I’ve had more time to spend with my Moto X, I’ve had a chance to discover a few things that really irk me about it. None of them are really dealbreakers for me, but they’re there, nonetheless. 1. No wireless charging – I knew this going into it, …

Moto X: Things I Love

I’ve had the Motorola Moto X for a few weeks now, and am really pleased with my purchase. I’ve already shared my first impressions, so I wanted to list out some of the things that I really love about this phone already. 1. Battery life – good grief, this phone …

In Praise Of The Sony SBH20 Bluetooth Headset

I love listening to music. If it had it my way, I would be surrounded by music all the time. I also love ‘magic’ technology, and being wireless. I had previously been eyeing the Nokia BH-121, but could never actually find a place to purchase it, so I started looking …

Wednesday Watch: A Diva’s Full Performance

Fifth Element is one of the greatest sci-fi movies of all time. Sure, it’s rather cheesy at times, but let’s face it – it’s greatness. One of the best parts is the diva’s opera performance, which in the movie, is cut into with action scenes, for a riveting viewing experience. …

I Ditched Facebook’s Apps And It Is Awesome

A couple of months ago, I uninstalled the Facebook apps I had on my phone. It was only three – the actual Facebook app, the Messenger app, and the Pages Manager app. And it was the best decision I’ve made in a while (at least pertaining to apps and whatnot). …

Hollywood Is Jacked Up

Going through my RSS this morning, I came across an article on The Verge titled “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2 is already slated for a June 3rd, 2016 release” and it made me cry a little inside. There are a few reasons that this headline just makes me sad: For starters, …

Moto X First Impressions

So I sold my Nexus 5 and bought a Moto X through MotoMaker.com. Mainly just cause I was bored with my Nexus 5, but also because I’ve been interested in the Moto X for a while, and my curiosity finally got the best of me. I bought a GSM Unlocked …

Thingiverse Finally Gets A Competitor In Pirate3D’s Treasure Island

Fun pirate branding aside, I’m really glad to see the emergence of Pirate3D’s new 3D project repository, appropriately dubbed ‘Treasure Island‘. While consumer-level 3D printers are now a thing, CAD and similar design skills aren’t really something the average consumer really has, currently. Thus, most people, when they get their …
