Isn’t this what I worked for?

The question is peculiar, “isn’t this what I worked for?” as it comes long after my “release” from my last job in the not-so-beloved Corporate America. I asked myself something akin to that query 7½ years ago as I was coming off my recent firing (laid off). Having taken a rare trip out of Florida… Read more »

How many times must I Awaken?

Ta da! The Stars Wars weekathon is over, timed perfectly to end on Sunday. Now, with the mythos firmly in mind, I’m now primed to watch “The Force Awakens”. And watch. And watch. And… It’s not as if I haven’t gone to see movies multiple times before, but since I’ve grown up (I hear a… Read more »

3D or no 3D…that is the headache

Except, it’s not science fiction anymore. … Read more »

Aritificial intelligence?

This is not a fantasy.  This is not a tale of make believe.  What follows is real life; a depiction so eerie, so terrifying that you may have trouble sleeping peacefully tonight.  Read on, if you will, but beware, for you may feel a presence surrounding you that you were yet unawares… They know.  That’s… Read more »

Get that camera away from me!

Technology is an astounding thing.  It evolves and grows almost as a living creature.  Tempted as I am, I don’t purchase every techno-toy that is generated out of the inventive minds and manufacturers.  Some items find their way to me through gifts (e-reader, Bluetooth); some I have always tended to stay current (home computer, home… Read more »
