Geeky stuff.

Mar 11 2015



I am normally pretty disciplined about skipping the first generation of any new technology, even when it’s an Apple product, but the new watch coming out of Cupertino is seriously going to test my resolve. I’m a gadget junkie to begin with, and an Apple FanGurl besides. Add in the fact that I’ve always had a “thing” for …

Wishful thinking …


Dr. Darling: The sound card in Eliza (our WinDoze netbook) seems to be working again. Shazzer: That’s good.

I *thought* it was kind of fishy when host Ellen Degeneres whipped out something other than an iPhone for the now-famous Tweet-seen-round-the-world “selfie” during the 2014 Oscar‘s ceremony last night! That’s because I have watched her talk show often enough to know that both she and her wife, Portia de Rossi, are iPhone owners. She …

My 1st week with my 5S


As promised by the Swedish online Apple Store on Halloween, my new SILVER iPhone 5S (there has been some debate about which finish I actually got) arrived during the week of November 18. Tuesday afternoon to be specific.  But in a cruel twist of fate, my schedule was so friggin’ busy that I didn’t even have time …
