Keep your eye upon the doughnut, and not upon the hole.

My friend and colleague +Jeremy Horwitz has an awesome and visionary Kickstarter project in the works that promises to seriously revolutionize the food scene in Western New York. The campaign ends in six days, and if you have any ties whatsoever to Buffalo or Western New York, or are somebody who wants to contribute to something amazing in the culinary world, you seriously need to check this one out.

Time to purge my office...

You know you're a packrat when you're cleaning up and find this stuff kicking around.

Not to mention the boxes of 5.25" diskettes, and even a few old 8" ones.

Chromecast now in Canada

So it seems that Chromecast is now officially available up here in the Great White North.

Of course, I already got one from across the border last year, and while it's an interesting device and I do still use it sometimes when travelling or visiting friends, it pretty much does exactly what my Viera TV and PS3 can already do in terms of YouTube and Netflix apps, and the same thing I can already do with my Apple TV in principle. Still a pretty cool device for $39, though.

Hmm, interesting... Hadn't noticed the lack of "auto-play" as I guess I hadn't used the Chromecast extensively enough, nor is it a feature my Apple TV has ever had. I know my Viera does have that, but I've gotten so used to simply playing the next thing manually that it's never really fazed me.

I do like the queuing and auto-play features for YouTube, however -- that's something that's conspicuously missing on the Apple TV side, and as a result I'm much more likely to fire up the Viera YouTube app when I have friends over and we're just wandering around through YouTube.

Now here's a really good idea....

What do you think ladies, would this work for you? For that matter, why be gender-specific about it? If I were a young single guy, I certainly wouldn't mind a woman doing this.

Social Media Editor for iLounge.com, Author, IT Consultant, Dad and other stuff
Introduction
I worked in information technology consulting and project management for 15 years primarily with enterprise and government organizations. Morphed my consulting skills, combined with a fascination with Apple technology, into a writing career about five years ago so I could stay at home and spend more time raising a family. 

I currently write for iLounge.com, covering tutorials, the weekly Ask iLounge column, and feature technical articles along with the occasional product or app review and handling of social media.  I have also written three editions of iPod & iTunes Portable Genius.  

In whatever spare time I have left, I'm a stay-at-home dad / house-husband and still do a bit of work with the Royal Canadian Air Cadets as a reserve officer in the Royal Canadian Air Force, which I have been involved with for 25 years.

Possibly one of the oldest barbershops still operating in Toronto -- over 54 years under the same ownership. Extremely friendly and professional service.

Nice ambiance, good service, great burgers. I'm more of a meat eater but several vegetarian friends have declared their veggie burger the best they've ever had.

A great little off-the-strip ramen place. Simple but effective menu. Small but popular spot, so there may be a wait, but it's definitely worth.

Its a Starbucks. Not much else to say. It used to be a nicer spot to hang out before it shrunk in size -- the former expansive seating area with local artwork on display is no more, having been overtaken by another business. This is now just an average small and cozy Starbucks.

One of the friendliest coffee shops I've ever had the pleasure of visiting.
