A Simple Solution to the Deflated Balls Situation

Anyone who follows sports should know about the scandal surrounding “the big game”. After the Patriots played the Colts (and won), something was noticed about the balls. They were too light.

Google banned one of my ads, the reason why will leave you astounded

I’m just a normal guy. I don’t have a huge advertising budget, so I have to be very careful when targeting my ads to keywords that would be of interest to my targeted demographic: freedom loving people who believe in the Right of self-defense. In this case, the site I was promoting is called SittingDuckPolicy.com, a site that lists places…

One man’s terrorist is another man’s freedom fighter

Food for thought… I’ve been hearing a lot about attacks that are being carried out around the world. Many that I talk with fireback with the quip “One man’s terrorist is another man’s freedom fighter”. “Domestic terrorists” is a label being used by government agents to vilify people critical of practices that limit freedom, Liberty, and infringe upon our Rights.

What if you could stuff your whole computer into your mouse? (video)

I’m a fan of mobile computing. You might have picked up on that thanks to my involvement with Pocketnow. Inside our smartphones are fully functional computers. They have multi-core, multi-GHz processors, a couple GB RAM, a fair amount of storage space, and so much more. Thanks to ARM-based processors, based on RISC rather than CISC concepts, we’re able to get…

Life and Death with the Nexus 6 (video)

Over the years, my primary smartphone and tablet have always been members of the Nexus family. I’ve had ample opportunity to try other Android-powered devices, but I always keep coming back to Nexus.

It’s National Joe Day!

According to Yahoo! News, March 27th is “National Joe Day”. All these years I never knew such a day existed! How can you properly show your appreciation for your favorite Joe?

Street Racing, Prowling, and Suspicious Activity — in My Neighborhood!

I’m a very sound sleeper. I can sleep through baby’s crying. I can sleep through conversations. I can sleep through almost anything. Early Sunday morning I was jolted out of my sleep by the sound of tires squealing near by. A lot of squealing. I was out of bed in an instant. Out the window I saw three cars tearing out of…
