Google Photos looks great, but many Google+ Photos editing tools didn't carry over.

+Julio Ojeda-Zapata My thoughts too mate. I am so disappointed that they didn't carry over the same editing tools as before. Like i don't see why they couldn't have because really all they done was separate photos so you don't need a G+ account!

A clever GoPro-and-iPad system for hockey coaches eliminates game-video editing.
When Mitch Baker was an assistant hockey coach at Bethel College in St. Paul, he went through highs and lows on the job.

Pretty neat. This is kinda similar to Phil Hodgett's Lumberjack system, which not only helps real-time logging, but also builds keyword collections and more within the editing system.

Blaze pink for hunting garb joins Sunday liquor sales as a no-brainer that will go nowhere.
In a move that could both liberate hunting apparel aisles and underscore unease around gender stereotypes in the outdoors, a group of Wisconsin state lawmakers Tuesday introduced legislation that would allow fluorescent pink to be worn by hunters.

A garden of wooden crosses at Fort Snelling honors those killed in Iraq, Afghanistan.
Once a year, just before Memorial Day, members of Amvets Post 1 in Mendota haul out plastic bins containing hundreds of small, white, wooden crosses -- each representing a service member killed in action in Iraq or Afghanistan.

Posting directly to my WordPress blogs from OneNote? Cool ... but I use Evernote. Evernote?
OneNote has been around for a very long time - since 2003 to be exact – but I do not remember hearing about OneNote all that much until a couple of years ago. My own awareness of OneNote and its abilities increased dramatically when I attended a session on the product during the 2013 Microsoft ...

Depending on the last time you tried it the interface has changed a great deal. There are two versions of OneNote currently, 2013 and the Modern UI version. I use the 2013 version on the desktop and Modern version on tablets. I still use Evernote for some personal use, but OneNote is my main app for work/business.

Tech writer. Nerd. Boricua. Cover picture by Steve Borsch.

I’ve had a lifelong fascination with technology, and I’ve been a journalist all my life — starting with my cute little articles for my grade-school newspaper, “La Flama,” in San Juan, Puerto Rico.

So, in a way, I’m one of the luckiest persons alive: I work as a technology journalist.

Today, I cover consumer technology for for, a MediaNews Group and Digital First Media property, and its St. Paul Pioneer Press dead-tree counterpart.

I report on a wide range of tech topics, post often to my tech blog, and slap together tech videos from time to time (when I’m not in one).

I also write books on occasion.

My third, recently released book, The Mobile Writer, is aimed at those who want to be productive on mobile devices (such as iPads and Android tablets) but don’t know how to get started. The book is a tech-gear and how-to guide for those wanting to get real writing done on ultraportable computing gadgets, but confused about their many hardware and software options.

Buy The Mobile Writer  here.

I’m also the author of iPad Means Business and Twitter Means Business. A fourth, coffee-themed book is in the planning stages.

I’m active on TwitterGoogle+ and Facebook, among other social networks.

I make frequent appearances on local and national TV-news broadcasts, radio programs and technology podcasts. This blog has archived video or audio of most such media appearances.

I speak with some regularity about journalism, technology and social media (and how the three intersect). A number of such engagements are archived here in video or audio form.

I’m a nerd (in the sci-fi-fanatic and tech-enthusiast senses of the word). I love to merengue, make sushi and brew that perfect cup of café (watch me rave about my favorite coffeemaker).

A native of Quito, Ecuador, I spent most of my childhood in San Juan and wear the “boricua” badge with pride.

I live with my wife and son in St. Paul, Minn., where I sometimes grumble about the non-tropical climate but love to strap on a snowboard.

Get out of your KFC rut. Pollo Campero, a fast-food chain of Guatemalan origin, serves divine grilled chicken along with to-die-for empanadas, tasty beans, awesome yucca fries (that could make you forget all about the potato variants) and fried plantains. I eat here a lot with my family and the staff knows and pampers us now ... but you'll be treated well, too. You won't have your food brought to your table at KFC. Oh, Campero has fried chicken, too. It's good, but the grilled chicken is better. You may disagree. Check it out and see! You may never again go to KFC.

Two bites into her rama spinach peanut curry, my wife reacted badly to something in the dish and almost coughed up a lung. I sent the dish back, explaining that my wife was in distress, and asked for something else on the menu. Management refused to provide a replacement dish and insisted on charging us for the mostly uneaten plate. We refused to pay for it, paid for the rest of the bill (no tip) and left. We will never eat there again.
