I have one similar to that, but I live in the Valley...which boggles the mind as to why we don't have AC built in.  Darn old buildings!

It's Pi Day (3.14). They must've went crazy for this in 1592 (think about it).

Yet another jam-packed flight and no one sitting next to me. My strategy is nearly flawless and my seat mates are loving it!

Story
Tagline
Senior Associate Editor at TechRadar.com with a degree in Journalism and passion for wearable tech and TVs
Introduction
I'm the Senior Associate Editor at TechRadar with a passion for wearable technology and TVs. I reviewed Google Glass and Chromecast along with Fitbit Force and Jawbone Up24. As an owner of both an iPhone and Android phone and tablet, I make myself familiar with both mobile operating systems.

I graduated from Penn State with a journalism degree and minored in history. I know the news that matters to people’s lives. I’m world-wise and politically-savvy. At age 14, I started video game news and reviews site Gaming Target, then moved on extend my writing portfolio to... G4TV.com, UGO.com, GamesRadar, GamePro, Machinima.com, Best Buy's @Gamer Magazine, PlayStation: The Official Magazine, Ticket (part of Montgomery Newspapers) and The Lion’s Roar, where I achieved the position of editor during my third semester with the college paper.
