While it's REAL easy to point a finger at FB and say "Hey you guys are targeting transgendered folks!" where do you draw the line? If I'm NOT transgendered but prefer to be known as Michelle, or my stage name "Sir Geeksalot" or something, should facebook be able to stop me from doing so? It's another matter if… » 10/01/14 4:00pm Yesterday 4:00pm

I went through almost the identical experience - since I support our execs and a couple got androids I needed to learn how it worked in general, and in our environment - so I also made the jump to the M8 - and there were some things I LOVE about it...in particular the ability to customize notifications to the… » 9/30/14 4:13pm Tuesday 4:13pm

It IS incredibly cool to watch but I'd be curious to know (without googling for myself of course) in what circumstance would this be used over traditional welding? It certainly doesn't seem like it would be more efficient in terms of energy requirements, though it's probably quicker than having someone go around with… » 9/24/14 2:16am 9/24/14 2:16am

That's how it was in Jersey the one other time I waited (iphone 3G). This time around it was chilly and there was none of that - people dropped chairs in line and then went and sat in their cars...only really lined up as the parking lot started to fill up. » 9/21/14 7:29am 9/21/14 7:29am

I actually ordered the spigen up top for whenever the plusses arrive at my office. Was the nicest looking of what I saw out there so far. Not sure people know what to do with a phone that size aside from the "folio" style that the note series has made so popular. » 9/19/14 9:15am 9/19/14 9:15am

Went to the VZ store early, and boy am I tired - got a phone tho

Full review to come...but yes, I'm that idiot who's up at pre 4AM and ready to head over there for a 4 hour wait until the store opens. Long story relatively short, several "important" types want to see the 6 plus to decide if they want that or the smaller 6. Despite my reassurances that they do NOT want the larger… » 9/19/14 3:55am 9/19/14 3:55am

I've been contemplating pulling the trigger on a cheapie kindle for awhile now, but since I already carry my ipad everywhere it seemed a little redundant. For 70 bucks I might have done it anyway but I honestly can't imagine spending 2 bills on an e-reader. That's a lot of bucks for a single function device... » 9/17/14 10:51pm 9/17/14 10:51pm

In some states that's how it goes. We had a gun range in my general area (which has since closed up) where you could walk in with your own gun (NJ is handguns and rifles only, or at least was at the time), buy your ammo, and go to town, but no rental or loaner equipment of any sort. Not sure if that was just them,… » 9/17/14 2:38pm 9/17/14 2:38pm

Shrimpfest - what the hell is wrong with us?

See those dark storm clouds over head? They're the sign of a coming armageddon...and that armageddon is known as the all-you-can-jam-in-your-mouthhole delight that is shrimpfest. Now this would be a great time for me to mention I hate Red Lobster. Red Lobster is to seafood what KFC is to fried chicken - sure, it'll… » 9/16/14 8:05pm 9/16/14 8:05pm
