Tomorrow will see the release of Windows 10 to the general public. Normally I would have long ago tested/reviewed Windows 10 myself, but I didn’t have time until recently so I’m waiting patiently for the release like everyone else. While Microsoft’s most notable product has generally been lamented through the years, Windows 10 is seeing a lot of very positive reviews. The last few months has also seen a blitz of marketing which centers around “of course, the start menu is back” and “Free upgrades” which are both popular choices with the user base. As soon as I get a chance to bump a Windows device, I’ll report back, until then… happy upgrades!
Dead MacBook or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Surface Pro 3
September 29, 2014
For about three weeks, I’ve carried around the Microsoft Surface Pro 3 as my “daily driver” laptop. I’ve written plenty of reviews about new machines, but what makes this “test” a little different is that I didn’t have a backup laptop. Under normal circumstances, anything I test is just a temporary thing. I may carry around a new device with me and use it as my primary computing platform for a week or so, but I always have the security blanket of my main machine. For the last couple of years, that primary machine has been a MacBook Air (well, really several MBAs). However, just after I got the Surface Pro 3 (SP3), I killed the LCD display driver (the physical component) during a meeting. I was in a rush so I grabbed the Surface Pro 3 which I had toyed with… and it became the aforementioned daily driver.
Quick Review: Jot Script (Evernote) Stylus
January 20, 2015
The Jot Script by Adonit, Evernote editionEven with the failure of the Pencil by Fifty Three on my “Go Paperless” kick, I remained undeterred. Second on the docket, was Penultimate by Evernote and the Jot Script (Evernote edition). I was most excited by trying this combo out since it seemed express built for my purposes. Plus, my end goal is my digital life in Evernote, so what better than an app (and stylus) designed specifically for that exact purpose?
Samsung Galaxy S4 – I'm quite impressed
May 30, 2013
Oh darn! I ruined the entire review. Here I was, going to tell you what I thought of the Samsung Galaxy S4, after my first week of use… and I gave away the ending in the title. Well, you know what? Screw it. I’m going to tell you what I think anyway because “I’m quite impressed” means very little to you, the discerning internet denizen. You want details, damn it, and I’ll try to provide them.
