All too often mobile forms make use of drop-down menus for input when simpler, more appropriate controls would work better. In this quick 4 minute video I highlight how simple stepper controls can be a useful alternative: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CW4qKTJqHPo

Glad to see two of the largest U.S. banks really investing in mobile payments and supporting Android Pay and Apple Pay both equally.
Apple Pay is convenient, but cash is king. Someday soon they could join forces.

Humanizing our digital world.
Introduction
Think of  me as a hybrid of a conductor and a translator. I organize creative teams to best accomplish a project. Then I speak in the native languages of web dev, design, photography, word smith, app dev and a little Wookie so the team knows how to best complete a project. Do not worry. I can translate all of their ideas into 'normal' human speak as well.

The Adventure Carolina guides were great once again. They were focused on everyone's safety while still keeping the day fun. We got to paddle at our own speed most of the time. No acts of heroism were required (injuries, alligators or people falling out of their boats) on our group's outing, but I am confident the two guides were prepared. Fair warning, you are likely to catch the kayaking bug after your tour.

I recently contacted this shop looking for the BLAKROC album on vinyl. While the other stores (3) around town only checked their physical inventory, Eric (learned the owners name via email exchanges) took the extra step and contacted his distributor to see if they could locate a copy of this 2009 album at that higher level. Even though we did not have any luck with that route either I was still impressed that they even made the inquiry. They will be my first call next time I am on the hunt for a piece. They get a five star rating for customer service!

Pawleys Front Porch is located in the Five Points area of Columbia, SC. The restaurant has been around for a few years (3 or 5). Their main draw are the hamburgers (~$10). Be sure to checkout their online menu. My favorite is the "Wadmalaw" burger or chicken sandwich. After being featured on Diners, Drive-ins and Dives it has become a "must-try" spot in town. Tourist and locals keep it packed during lunch. My advice; go early or wait until after 1pm. The porch is enjoyable nearly year round thanks to the Carolina weather. My beer geek buddies say the selection of brews is pretty good to, if you are into that sort of thing. Price: $$ Average visit: 50-60 minutes

Over the years I have been to Rockaway's a few times for lunch. The food is pretty good, but nothing to brag about. The reason we are not patrons more is because of the service. No quick lunch breaks here. Food takes some time to be prepared. You will be lucky to get out in under an hour. The waiter stop by the table a little as possible. Ration your drink. *Update: Things might be turing around for Rockaway's. Last week's visit was quick and the waitress was attentive.

A great trip back in time to my childhood. Atari, NES and N64 games surround the cashier. Looking over the titles caused me to regret parting ways with those old systems. They had a couple refurbished systems for sale, but I resisted spending entirely too much money. The staff was very knowledgable too. I spent most of my time in the store picking the brain of one guy and enjoying his stories. I was very impressed with the backstories on some of the more rare games. They also have a smaller board game section with new and classic games. I would highly recommend this store to anyone looking to rebuild their childhood game collection or perhaps find a loving home for those forgotten games in your attic.

When the office lunch crew cannot decide on a place to grab lunch I suggest Takosushi for the eclectic menu options. A little mexican. A little sushi. Be sure to look over the menu online before heading over. My typical order: bean & queso dip with chips and a bento box for lunch. Weird combination, but it works. The food is good and is prepared quickly. Service is typically really good. The lunch crowd does not overcrowd the restaurant, but the dinner/happy hour crowds take over. Not the cheapest place to grab lunch.
