Wishful thinking …


Dr. Darling: The sound card in Eliza (our WinDoze netbook) seems to be working again. Shazzer: That’s good. It means we can wait awhile longer to replace the MacBook Air.  Dr. Darling: Why would we need to replace the MacBook Air because of a dead sound card in Eliza?

Move over, Nutella.


It’s been a good run for Nutella in the U.S., but I think its reign as the premier “How-to-get-away-with-eating-chocolate- for-breakfast” spread is about to end. Now I will be the first to admit that I seem to be one of the few people in the world who is not all that crazy about Nutella … …

Looks like Christmas is coming early this year

Silver iPhone 5S

I know it’s just now Halloween, but here in Sweden … where there is no Thanksgiving holiday to mark the official start of the holiday shopping season … some stores are already beginning to decorate for Christmas. Granted, the Swedish Apple Store is not one of them. But it has started selling the new iPhone 5S unlocked, …
