Humble Origin Bundle 2 - A Nostalgic Update Brings More Games
It's one week since the Humble Origin Bundle 2 first launched, so naturally it's time for the final games to unlock. Those of you (like me) who bought the bundle and beat the average already will find the games automatically unlocked for you. And if you hav...

Repairing and Replacing the Nexus 5 Screen

$500 Budget PC Guide
If it's been a while since your last PC upgrade, chances are good that you stand to benefit from a refresh to your hardware. While in theory anything with a Core 2 Duo / Athlon X2 (the later variants at least) or newer is still "fast enough", gains in effic...

A Mighty and Magical Humble Bundle

Overview of Laptop Processors, April 2015
Recently I've had a few people come up to me asking for advice on buying a laptop. The problem with asking for advice on a laptop is that many are looking for a good budget  laptop, and the term "budget" is rather vague. I've spoken with many people over th...

Humble Origin Bundle #2: Just Buy It Already!
I've been a long-time fan of the Humble Bundle, not necessarily because they support charities -- which is always nice -- but simply because they have many excellent offers where you can pick up several quality games at a great price. Not every bundle is wo...

Microsoft Windows Speech Recognition
I've been a long time user of Dragon Naturally Speaking, going all the way back to 2006. I've also fooled around with the speech recognition provided by Microsoft, which used to be a part of Microsoft Office but it's now built into Windows (starting with Wi...

Graphics Card Guide, April 2015
I mentioned working on some other articles, so this is going to be my first real non-cryptocurrency article in some time. Given my background, it's only fitting to start with graphics cards. So you're thinking about buying a new graphics card (GPU), but not...

Computer nerd, cryptocoin enthusiast, and laptop guru
Introduction
I hail back to the days of the glorious Commodore 64, where I spent many an hour as a youth playing games, learning BASIC, and generally devouring all things technology. Yes, I even know what it's like to use a dial-up modem to connect to a BBS at 300 baud (ouch). I've been using PCs since the early Intel 8088 and 8086 running MS-DOS 2.x, and I've used just about every major release in between that and our modern Windows 8.1 -- and Windows 7 is still better in my opinion. I've also studied computer science, done some web programming, ballroom danced around the world, worked as a professional programmer, and now I'm a technology journalist.

Fast and quick service, and I always appreciate it when a company vacuums your car during the oil change. Great job!
