Two full charges with the Pebble Time
June 30, 2015
Thursday, a week ago, I received my shiny new Pebble Time in red. It was quite exciting to receive; I had been looking forward to playing with it since the Kickstarter. While I had an original Pebble, I didn’t wear it much for a variety of reasons. I’m betting $200 that version 2 will have worked out all the major flaws and provide a much better experience.
How NOT to inspire faith, the mobile app for Ike's Place
September 27, 2011
As of last week, I’m now officially a resident of San Francisco. With this comes many benefits (like delicious food from crazy places) and many detractors (I have to sell my truck). Let’s ignore the down sides of living in the city and just focus on one thing, a sandwich place in the Castro called Ike’s Place. Their sandwiches are delicious and the place is AMAZINGLY busy. It seems that they’ve taken this as a sign that the food gods are pleased and invested a little into their technology. Normally this wouldn’t anger the tech gods, but Ike’s has invested just enough in their mobile app to be embarrassing.

One of the greatest inventions for small site hosting is that of Google Apps. I, like many people these days, own a number of domain names. I host sites for those domains along with sites for my friends. One of the few services I don’t offer is email — and that’s where Google Apps comes in. It is the most perfect mix of Gmail (which I like, though I know some don’t) and custom email domains… well… almost perfect.
