Last year, Apple announced the 12″ Retina MacBook ultraportable. Today, the machine got its first update. There’s a lot of things you’d expect and others that are a little surprising. Let’s take a look at what the 2016 model brings. The 12″ is based around a 2304 x 1440 Retina display. This doesn’t change neither … Continue reading "Apple Refreshes Retina MacBook"

BB10 is for all intents and purposes dead now as it will have no devices in 2016. That is fantastic for the survival chances of Blackberry.

Yes, the #iPhone SE does have a point and an audience.  Its just not us. http://www.thetechhangout.com/iphone-se/
If you’re reading this, chances are that the iPhone SE is not for you. We’re the geeks, the power users that always want the latest and greatest. What we aren’t is the majority, no matter what we think we are, we’re a very vocal minority in Apple’s sales. You’ll hear about how boring the SE … Continue reading "iPhone SE: It’s Not About Us, Its About Everyone Not Us"

Story
Tagline
My here opinions are my own and don't reflect the views of anyone I'm employed by.
Introduction
Who am I?  I am a professional with skills in writing, PR, and customer service.  I am highly skilled, intelligent, and learn new skills extremely quickly. I am humble, patient, and take direction well, but can operate independently effectively and I work well with others. I am a person who cares deeply about the job I do and creating a positive outcome for my clients.

Who am I?  A product of the 21st century with my roots in the 20th.  I'm a lifelong technology fan, most of it on Macs, former hardcore gamer, and guitar and auto geek.  My other hobbies include history (especially military, aeronautical, and maritime), science (both physical and biological), philosophy, and when I need to decompress, you can find on a trail somewhere amongst the trees.

You can find me writing for technology sites, co-hosting Deconstruct, and being a semi-frequent guest on technology podcasts.
Bragging rights
I hit .700 in little league one year. I'm not kidding.

This place is a technology mecca. KEF Speakers, HUGE curved UHD TV, 30 UpDesks, 3 robots, a giant psycho wall... I mean cyclorama. Just watch out for the Kreepy Kitty and the dynamic prank duo of Gio and Kubby. Also there's a Chihuahua visiting the place which doesn't serve you Taco Bell. If you're Dallas, and by Dallas I mean Farmers Branch, you have no excuse not to visit.
