Research for this post included a field trip to a building on Madison Ave to find an office that doesn't exist.

Of course, 5:30 in the morning is the perfect time to knock a mug of tea onto my laptop. Never has a laptop been torn open and ripped apart so quickly. Please not the motherboard, PLEASE not the motherboard...

I got pushed into a pool for this hands-on review. No wonder they kept telling me, "We really want to get this done in one take, okay?" Sometimes I get the feeling my co-workers don't like me very much.
One of our favorites from CES 2013 is finally here with North American LTE.

Bethesda and ZeniMax are hard at work on a new MMO, and it's taking you back to the world of Skyrim, Oblivion and Morrowind.

So what do you do when you receive an email like this:


"Hello Mr. Levy,

I just finished your book "Hackers". I had no idea you were a writer for "wired", totally cool! Great book by the way! I just wanted to stop by and say hello, show my appreciation and to apologize. I apologize for the fact that I did not purchase your book, hopefully you follow the "Hacker Ethic" as strongly as your have written about it. It was located in a collection of other books that I discovered on the internet. However if your ever in the Metro Detroit area please drop me an e-mail and I will buy lunch that day. Promise.

Thank you again for a great book!

DAVE"


Clearly by "apologizing" this dude realizes that an author might not appreciate his show of appreciation when it comes with an explanation that he got the book from a pirate site. ( I also suspect at one point he might have heard the distinction "free as in freedom, not free as in beer.") I'm not really bent out of shape that people might come across my book in this fashion, but I do think that if it had some impact on someone, just for karma's sake the impulse would be to make up for it by something like buying the book for a friend (or Dave's own library), buying another of my books, sending $ to charity, or simply vowing to do something along those lines at some point if Dave found himself flush.

I think even Dave suspects that it is highly unlikely that if I am in Detroit on travel I would schedule my day around having lunch with someone who cheerfully tells me he has plucked the fruits of my labor without leaving any pennies in the jar. Also, the grammar in his letter leads me to suspect that I might be confronted with something less that the wit of Noel Coward.

Should I write Dave back? What should I tell him? Or do some of you think think that he's behaving honorably?

Google+ just tried to tag Nathan Drake as me. I wonder if technology is trying to call me handsome or 'bit of a stereotype' :/
