I’ve got some good news and some bad news for you – which do you want first? Sure, let’s get the bad news out of the way…the summer is ending! I know, shorter days, cooler temps, less Pina Coladas…all pretty harsh. The good news is… football season is here!

Oh, So This Is How You Get NFL Players To Answer Your Questions
NFL players must have really bad hearing. Every time I am at a game I yell various questions down to the players, and I guess they don’t hear me, since they never respond to me?

It Is Great To See Technology Connecting Rather Than Dividing
Seriously, big thanks to Lenovo for allowing us to ask that question of Mason Crosby. Technology is great, but often it seems to divide and replace real life social interaction. Just look at any group of teens and you will see them not talking to each other, but instead all on their own device and texting with others. As a Dad, this really has me concerned. Is all this new technology going to hurt our ability to socially interact?
Mason’s response shows that my fears are probably misplaced. Yes, there are teens who spend way too much time texting, but you also have technology like Skype and video chat that allow people to stay connected to their family, even while traveling and that is a great example of technology bringing people together. We had a similar experience when we showed kids the Lenovo Horizon Table PC – it brought the kids together and that was refreshing to see.
