    Blister packs are EVIL!

    • 5 Comments
    SO I recently got a new gadget, the Microsoft Wireless Notebook Presenter Mouse 8000 , which is very cool, but it reminded me of a truism that is unescapable. That is, that the blister packs that this and many other products come packaged in are completely...

    Fuel cell charger?

    • 4 Comments
    Interesting story in CIO about a company producing Microsoft-branded fuel cell-based recharging devices. Whether the speculated purposes are true (Zune and/or Windows Mobile devices), this sounds kinda cool. And since I own both, I'm very interested in...

    Storing data on CD/DVD

    Zune Bashing in the press

    • 2 Comments
    It's not news that there have been lots of critics of the Zune. I own one (brown), I like it, and I use it as regularly as any electronic device I own apart from my computer and cell phone. So clearly, I'm not likely to jump on the "Zune sucks" bandwagon...

    Lasik Today

    • 1 Comments
    So my LASIK procedure is in a couple of hours. At noon today, I'll be getting the procedure done, then I'm supposed to nap for 4-5 hours. Always nice to have a nap mandated by your doctor. I'm having my surgery performed by the same surgeon who did Tiger...

    KB vs. Search

    • 0 Comments
    So, back in the day, I was always a big fan of the Microsoft Knowledge Base . It used to be that I knew that if I got an error message in Windows, and typed in the first few words and did an exact phrase search, I could be fairly certain that I'd find...
