I added a Peace Lily to my room based on this 1989 NASA study around using plants on space stations to improve air quality. SCIENCE!

If you're on a road trip this weekend, stay vigilant like this driver.

(NSFW Language) This video is a healthy reminder to keep your cool when faced with the poor decisions of other vehicles on the road. The occupants of the truck were absolutely in the wrong, but it's equally important to ensure you're in a safe location and report the (possibly) drunken behavior. The last thing you need is to be right, but dead. Stay safe by acting safe!

It's a good day to be cycling around ‪#‎CLE‬. I discovered Chagrin River Park today, which has a good set of trails for cycling or walking for all ages. I'm also trying a new challenge of riding in lower gears to keep my cadence high for a better cardio workout. I need to find an inexpensive bike computer to help keep track during my ride.

Instant flashback to 1989.
 
Love Nintendo? If you live near one of these 8 select Best Buy locations nationwide, they're holding qualifying events on Saturday, May 30th for this year's Nintendo World Championship. In the meantime, we'll rewatch our old copy of 1989's "The Wizard".
At select Best Buy stores on Saturday, May 30, compete for the high score in <em>Ultimate NES Remix</em> and a spot in the championships in L.A.

Damn, none of those are close to me. I better find Beau Bridges and start a road trip. Maybe I can call that Nintendo hotline number, I'm sure it's still available ...

Flashback Friday - Mad Max Fury Road remixed into an 80s trailer. The synths were a bit light, it needs to be more punk, but otherwise a wonderful bit of retro-work.

That weird feeling you get when your mom gets the same smartphone as you. Happy for her, yet depressed that your gadget is no longer more advanced.

Always great to see the interest in #tech  shown by the kids (and parents)!
 
The Geek Squad Academy team helped kickoff the Dallas City of Learning event this weekend with hands-on demonstrations to teach about technology.

I think most of us would love to play Mario Kart: Fury Road.

Huh. The movie Real Genius is 30 years old. It's one of the first positive geek movies I can recall.
An examination of the greatest geek campus comedy ever, Real Genius, and why it still holds up better than most college films 30 years on.

Even the most advanced security can be defeated by a poorly chosen password. On this week’s #TechTuesday segment on WTAM 1100 Newsradio, Bill Wills and I discuss basic tips on how to choose a strong password. I do recommend the use of a password managers, such as +LastPass and +Dashlane 

We also talk about +Kerbal Space Program, a fun but smart physics-based game for all ages with an interest in rockets and spaceflight. More information and a free demo can be found at kerbalspaceprogram.com.

Listen to #Tech Tuesday on WTAM 1100 Newsradio in Cleveland every Tuesday at 7:50am. Follow Bill Wills on Twitter as @billwillswtam and myself at @agent3012.
