I would say that my first set of internet friends, who I went on to actually interact with in any meaningful way, were folks that I met up with in an AOL Paintball chatroom. It was my freshman year of college (95) so the internet had been around, but was still fairly new. I was also new to paintball, having just… » 1/29/15 6:10pm Yesterday 6:10pm

I remember drooling over the adamos...both of em...when they first came out. They were so unique that it was hard NOT to want them (especially the XPS). When the reviews started to drop, so did the desire, but I admit I always kept that form factor in the back of my head as the "something different" I would buy, if… » 1/29/15 3:50pm Yesterday 3:50pm

Beyond that, when the first walkman came out, it was your option if you wanted to listen to tapes on the go. It wasn't a saturated market, the way mobile music devices are now...with most smartphones doing a damn respectable job, and plenty of dedicated music players available for a hell of a lot less, I really don't… » 1/29/15 9:20am Yesterday 9:20am

OK so perhaps this is a silly question but...wouldn't a bear vault be just fine if, instead of a tab, it had a combination lock built in? I mean, I know the bears are smart and all but instead of having a physical release, make it some kind of logical one. Wouldn't that keep the bears out and the people in (Assuming… » 1/28/15 3:17pm Wednesday 3:17pm

Not surprising that they'd want it - wifi for conferences especially is big business. When we have a conference we usually setup our own access points and network direct to our network...and the bill for such things is well into the 20-30k range, with the biggest we did topping into the 6 figures. That having been… » 1/27/15 4:46pm Tuesday 4:46pm

Did the NFL really expect that they were going to get anything different? Unless they somehow manage to say "You have to show up and answer questions with accurate answers", they have no power here. The dude doesn't want to talk to the media. If his team, owner, and coaches are okay with it, just leave the guy the… » 1/27/15 4:13pm Tuesday 4:13pm

Alright now look, I'm not an apple fanboy, though I do like their stuff...but the macbook air irritates your poor widdle wrists? Seriously? I've done a 6 hour train trip, working on my mba the whole way and, remarkably, I didn't feel myself overheating, getting a rash, or dying... » 1/27/15 1:29pm Tuesday 1:29pm

100% yes on the ford flex. Rented one a couple of years back when I had to haul my team around Florida and the thing is great. Fantastic interior space, and didn't drive anywhere near as "big" as the Expedition did back then. Definitely a car way up there on my list. » 1/26/15 1:14pm Monday 1:14pm
