Learning about Q4OS for the first time. Since this video was posted over a year ago, I would like to believe that this OS has seen its fair share of updates over the past 15 months. Time to download this baby and see what it feels like within VirtualBox.

Bladeless Wind Generator  

It's so refreshing to expose our minds to another branch of genius in the world around us. Today I would learn (for the first time) about a project where a team of individuals are developing a bladeless wind generator. From first glance I saw the touch of genius, and I wanted to do my part to reshare this resource with others. More people need to know about this interesting innovation.
 
... And Now For Something Completely Different ...

Vortex Bladeless: a wind generator without blades - instead of using wind to turn a turbine, this device is designed to achieve a harmonic oscillation induced by the wind. This oscillatory mechanical movement is converted into electricity via electromagnetic induction, similar to an alternator.

An IndieGoGo crowd funding site is almost at its US goal of $50K: https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/vortex-bladeless-a-wind-generator-without-blades--3#/story

First Time In History of Windows  

Got a notification on my Windows 8.1 platform stating the fact that I could reserve my FREE upgrade to Windows 10. If you think that I'm excited about this offer, you are CORRECT!

Microsoft Office 2016 Consumer Preview  

Learning about this version of Microsoft Office for the first time today. Thanks to this article. Gotta give my props to Microsoft for stepping up their game with software innovation.
Want to try out Microsoft's Office 2016? Now you can. And if you own a Windows 10 phone, you can soon download the universal Office apps as well.

Amazing Microsoft HoloLens Demonstration  

The video demo in this post run just over 3 minutes, and it will provide us with a glimpse of what's possible with HoloLens. Another "game changer" in the marketplace.

Windows 10 Build 10102 Watermark Message  

Trying to make sense of this watermark message found on the clean install of Windows 10 Build 10102. Even with this build of Windows 10, Microsoft Edge does not show up, and Spartan is still lacking the ability to capture notes for various websites. Let's hope for more improvement with Build 10108.

Windows 10 Build 10147 and VHD  

I am pleasantly surprised to see how well Windows 10 Build 10147 is running within the VHD file I created on the internal hard drive of my laptop. Happy to discover that it will no longer be necessary for me to re-partition my hard drive just to install a different version of Windows, or another flavor of Linux. Let the good times roll.

Well as I run a dual boot machine with Windows and Linux, I kind of like what you posted already.

The main thing I like though is the return of the Start menu.

Windows 10 Memory Lane  

Stumbled across one of my entries in OneNote 2013, and it showed me how much time has passed by between various "Builds" for Windows 10. As of this writing, I have Build 10130 running through VirtualBox on my laptop. I like what I see thus far, especially with the revamp of the Windows Insider app. Keep up the good work Microsoft.

Make a 2-minute Stylus  

I need to give this project a try. Nice to find some creativity.
We've shown you how to make your own touch-screen stylus before, but Sharon Vaknin has another quick and dirty design. Take a peek at her secret weapon for navigating her iPad and becoming a Draw Something master.

Windows 10 Build 10114 Bring It On  

I am ever ready for this build for Windows 10. With this Build the Windows Insider Hub has been overhauled, which is impressive to me. In this build I hope to see some improvements for Microsoft Edge, and it's ability to allow us to to share content with OneNote.
In the latest build of Windows 10 to make its way outside the walls of Redmond, the Insider app has been completely overhauled with a new interface and more features as well.

Update: Working with Build 10147 running inside of a VHD file residing on my hard drive. No longer necessary to partition in order to install Windows or Linux. Such a blessing to learn something new.

As of this writing Build 10130 is currently available to download.

MSDN Channel 9 Build Microsoft Products and Services  

It has been quite some time since I looked into resources available through MSDN. Now that I'm investing time into Insider Hub for Windows 10, I'm becoming exposed to some resources that I had not been aware of. In keeping with Development for the Windows platform, I believe that I'm getting exposed to a "whole new world." I like what I've seen thus far, and I hope to spend more time with these amazing resources.

Google+, Google Android, Linux, Open Source, Social Media and Going Green. Let's talk about it.
Introduction
I am a God-fearing, Intelligent Man, who is interested in Faith, Family, Finance, Humanity, Personal Development, Professional Networking, One on One Coaching, Agriculture, Green Technology, Going Green, Web Development and Education. I love to meet new people through people that I already know, as a benefit of Social Networking through Google+.

I also have a strong foundation in Technology, and I'm very interested in the Linux Operating System. After 15 years (collectively) in the Health Care Industry, Traffic Engineering and other industries, I have a renewed interest in the field of Education. While I love technology, I'm still learning about the importance of basic human relations. After all, "Systems are only as good, as the people you have behind them."

Believe it or not, I actually *enjoy* conversing with folks here on Google+. Discussions threads are very lively for the most part, and the use of circles helps to provide a unique way of looking at our relationships.
Bragging rights
My "genius" for technology would begin at the age of 15, and would begin to skyrocket from 1996 onward ever since I learned about the *amazing* Linux operating system.

Damion was professional and very helpful through the application process. The location for Public Storage is also a convenience as it runs along the Metro F4 and Ride On 17 bus routes. I would definitely recommend this place to others.

This is a very health conscious store that has so much to offer the local community. Finally after almost 2 years from my previous review, I decided to join the Food Coop, and I'm glad I did. Best decision I ever made for this year thus far for 2013.

I have never actually been *inside* this building, yet I can say that it has a beautiful landscape that is very Green. So much so, that one can feel a sense of tranquility when you walk through this area. The Takoma Park Recreation Department is relatively close to Piney Branch Elementary, and it's possible to find this location while riding the Ride On 17, 18 or the F4 Metro. As long as the bus route is heading towards Maple Avenue, this facility can be found.

This restaurant provides me with delicious food every time. Tilapia Fish Special with Cabbage. Service with a smile is usually rewarded with a Tip. That's just the way that I roll.

I haven't been to Brookside Gardens for some time now, yet I did have a good time while I was there. Now that I think of it, I need a place a trip to this place real soon.
