Personal Computers (PCs), Notebooks and Laptops…remember when these things used to be , well a thing. You would get excited to get a new computer, it was after all the ultimate tech gift, sitting on top of the gadget food chain.

At 11:45pm last night I started running, like a caged rat, in my basement. The night before, much to the amazement of my sleepy cat, I started walking loops around my house. While this may sound like the actions of a Dad who has spent a little too much time around glue sticks, there is actually something else going on here. I have become addicted to the Misfit Flash that I wear on my arm.
The Misfit Flash is a fitness and sleep tracker that somehow guilts you into hitting your goals, being active and even getting more sleep. While, fitness trackers are not new, the fact that the Misfit Flash sells for under $50, does bring these trackers to a much larger potential audience.

I hope you are not reading this on the weekend or during the summer, because school is about to start…

Hate to start this list off on such a heavy note, but if my calculations are right, you have probably lost the ability to process what I am writing anyway. Look, human to human, I got to say it – we’re just not doing well. Luckily, the Consumer Electronics industry has created endless gadgets and sensors to save us from certain doom. I wrote all about it here, so please if you still have the muscle strength to click, check out my piece on why humans are doomed…unless gadgets can save us.
#2. It’s Only A Matter of Time Before You Get Mugged By a Drone

You made it! Take a deep breath, it is Christmas Eve. For better or worse, the shopping is done.

When you imagine a robot, do you see an app controlled cylinder, traveling at 14 MPH and doing almost magical moves in mid air? Yeah, probably not – but that might all change when you see our video review of Ollie The App Controlled Robot from the fine folks at Orbotix (who brought us Sphero [...]

Reality, I think it is time I see other realities. Don’t take it personally, it’s not you, it’s me. I mean, you have your gravity, logic, physics and consequences – which are all totally cool, but I just need a little more freedom at this point in my life. I need to experience what [...]
