After spending a few months bonding with my Nokia N85, I now feel comfortable providing a follow-up review of the phone. It’s good news: the honeymoon is not over. Overall I am impressed with the quality of the phone itself, as well as the quality of pictures and video. And the OLED screen still elicits [...]

Totally awesome. The above sums up how I describe my new cell phone, the latest electronic toy added to our menagerie. After  years of merely getting by with a free Motorola Razr, I am now living large with a Nokia N85. As with most Nokia phones worth owning, the N85 is not available from AT & T. It can be [...]

For the holidays, Grant bought our mom a set of Luigi Bormioli Duo double-wall drinking glasses. These glasses have a two thin layers of glass separated by an air pocket. This construction apparently provides superior insulation and fends off condensation. Bodum has a similar range of glasses. Reviews of these glasses from all over praise them [...]

Before I returned to school that following fall, I purchased the B50 home brewer and have been thrilled with it at college. I have now owned [...]

Overview Before starting the review I should give some perspective on the type of person writing it. I am a technology freak, constantly researching the gadgets that can make my life easier (or more complicated – depending on device!). My first real watch, following the Zelda wristwatch, was a Casio calculator wristwatch. This watch served [...]

I have never been a big fan of earbuds, like those bundled with most MP3 players simply because the sound quality is so poor.  I always found myself pushing the earbuds in very tight to see what sound quality I could be having.  Thus, I got a pair of Bose Triport over the ear headphones, [...]

City Pass

10Oct06

Sheryl, a co-worker, his wife, and I recently returned from a weekend getaway in Chicago.  This has been my second visit and on both occasions I purchased the City Pass.  The City Pass is a booklet which contains admission to attractions in major cities such as New York, Chicago, Boston, etc.  Each booklet was $50, which pays for [...]

I finally got to see Little Miss Sunshine yesterday, at The Campus Theater in Lewisburg, PA.  This film is another example of a well-made independent film building enough momentum via film festivals and word-of-mouth, that it could spread from limited release to wide release with a very small promotion budget (think Napolean Dynamite).  The film [...]
