    Why do you need it? Just because it's there? And Steve Jobs told you that you do?

    iPad. Lord have mercy. I don't even think I have a joke that has not already been said before. I'd say I'm speechless, but I don't do speechless. I had a conversation last night with someone that is super cheesed-off that their music content is being...

    Multitasking Kills Puppies

    OK, maybe it doesn't but it's definitely overrated. And I can't do it . I sometimes have focus so intense that someone walking up behind me and saying "hi!" can scare the crap out of me. Like heart-leaping scared. So flipping my focus back and forth...

    As suspected, David Lee Roth is a business genius.

    OK, it was never suspected. Didn't even cross my mind really. I mean, the brown M&M thing? It was just so much easier to assume it was diva tendencies. Zebra spandex and general nuttiness? Also things DLR excelled in. Who would have known he was an...

    Gawker gives you the rules on using sick days (hint: don't use them when you are sick because that is no fun at all). The hangover day has been a topic of conversation. Some people feel it's OK as long as you don't do it a lot. Me? I like to punish...

    Intensity, achievement, ridiculousness and villainry on The Amazing Race

    • 3 Comments
    It's exciting to see a Microsoft employee, and his wife , as contestants on the 16th season of The Amazing Race . I've had so little time for television lately, but will make a point to watch this season. I love the show and would have otherwise taken...

    Managing your social media

    • 0 Comments
    Even if you don't engage social media for work (I do, obviously), there is a lot of information coming through different accounts and profiles and it can be hard to manage all of it. Fast Company has a short article (for the n00bs, OK, I admit) to help...

    Uncluttering at work...

    I struggle with time management. I get my stuff done, but the issue of "time" always comes up. Yesterday, someone mentioned that everything I was talking about with regard to my life outside of work was about time too (Do I have time to get this all done...
