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.
Review: NCIS (The Video Game)
January 5, 2012
For Christmas I got NCIS the video game. I had been curious about it, which is why it was on my Amazon wishlist, but I was not curious enough to actually fork out the $40 for it. The game doesn’t have very good reviews on Amazon, but I do love NCIS… so it’s worth a shot, right? No… no it’s not.
MythBusters is the Best Show Ever
April 16, 2010
This past evening I was watching some of the latest MythBusters’ episodes after I had returned from Aikido. It just so happened that after class a few guys had gotten to talking about court, then DUI checks, then to the MythBusters’ test on how to beat breathalyzers. As I was watching the show, I realized something: MythBusters is probably one of the best TV shows ever. I’m being serious here. Stop and think about it for a second.
