Ubuntu 13.04: A Little Deeper

A few weeks ago, I stated that it wouldn't be fair to pass judgement on Ubuntu 10.04 just yet. But that was before I took the plunge, fully installed it as a dual boot, and actually used it in my day-to-day activities. At this point, I think it’s safe to go there.

Review: PocketCloud

This weekend, I was looking for a way to get a little more utility out of my new Nexus 7, and I came across an app from "Wyse Technology" called PocketCloud. I have to say I was pretty impressed.

Review: AudioGalaxy

I've played with home radio apps in the past, things like Icecast and Shoutcast, as a way to have easy access to my rather large music collection. They've been "ok", but they've always seemed a little kludgy, and in this age of mobile access, the app suite really wasn't fully formed. On top of that, these were more broadcast tools than music selection tools. What if I wanted to hear something different than what my playlist was offering me right now?

[UPDATE] Google bought these guys and turned the lights off. I'm using Subsonic these days. 2/27/13

Review: Windows 8 Developer's Preview

"TLDR" version: Meh.

If you are in to this sort of thing, you may have noticed that Microsoft has released a developer's version of their upcoming Windows 8 operating system. It's very pretty and obviously based upon the same "Metro" UI found in the recently released Windows Phone 7 OS.

The more I know me ...

Greplin is a new web based service of which I recently became aware. It's claim to fame is that it's the Google for sites that Google can't see: Namely, password protected sites behind which we post and store data in a manner than protects our privacy but makes it difficult to search. Now you can have your cake and eat it to.
