Apple Watch Reviews Review

Some interesting takes here. And then...  #drama .

Read the linked article first. And then the following Twitter exchange:
  by Jean-Louis Gassée Product reviews of the Apple Watch launch are reaching new summits — and depths. A Business Insider post gave me an idea for a revealing experiment. This isn’t an Apple Watch review — I don’t even have a Watch, yet. I’ve been told that my 42mm alumin-ium Sport model will arrive in “4 to 6 weeks”, mid to late May. Even then, I’ll hold out for my third impression. I’ve learned to distrust my first reaction: I thought the iPod...

+Bill Meeks Oof! I thought I was prepared, but... Going to try to edit this into something less terrible.

But enough procrastinating. If I waited until I was absolutely ready, I'd never do it.

Crazy deal! It might not be the hottest tablet (hot... fire... nevermind) but for $79?! 

Don't look at me that way. I remember when HP was ditching their tablet stock some of you were forking out $99-$199 for that. That's right. I don't forget anything.

Now... what was I saying?

Yeah, but when I bought the HP TouchPad, it was great hardware for that price.  This is meh hardware.  ;-)

Still too niche for me, but definitely more tempting at a huge discount.
Remember the +Lytro Light Field Cameras that allowed you to refocus your image AFTER you took it? First announced in 2011, and then shipping in 2012, you can now score yourself one at up to 85% off.

This takes place in San Fran while DD happens in Hells Kitchen. It is a heist movie vs a lawyer drama. I think they can both easily exist in the same universe... The same universe that has a talking tree and a genetically modified raccoon. I like the difference

Just another geek with apparently too much time on his hands.
I'm a life-long geek who has been fortunate enough to find people willing to pay me to play with technology every day. I must be doing something right because now they pay me to tell others how to play with technology.

Or maybe I've been doing something wrong. That just now occurred to me.

At any rate, I also enjoy exercising my creative side by dabbling in photography, drawing and painting. All with a digital twist, of course.

If you are wondering about how to classify me as far as your circles go, the following are some ideas:
  • Technology/Geek
  • Photography
  • SharePoint
  • Apple
  • Google
  • Android
  • Comic Books
  • Literature
  • Art
  • Weird
I know many of you have more...interesting...groupings. You will probably need to get to know me a little better to determine which of those I fit into. If I don't warrant a circle of my own, that is.
