I recently picked up a Polaroid Cube+ video/still camera. It was an end of the year sale, so I figured what the heck might as well check it out. So far my better videos have been transit items. So without any further ado, here is the video I took of riding the train from Terminal 2 to Remote Parking at… Read more »
When traveling, I highly recommend bringing along a power strip or a power cube. Yes, we all travel with lots of electronics so this device comes in handy but there are other reasons as well. I use a Monster Outlets To Go Power Strip and its companion option with a USB port in it. The reason I like this device… Read more »
As my loyal reader and twitter follower is aware, I just attended the InfoComm2014 convention. I found myself struggling what to do with all these business cards I had acquired.

When traveling with toiletries including medications, be aware of the temperatures you are putting them through. Some medications, including contact solutions, have storage temperature ranges for the ingredients to remain potent.

This one might seem odd to some, but I have found it very helpful. I travel with my own bar of bath soap. I have found that the bath soaps can be very hit or miss when traveling.

The new mode of delivery I am thinking of is digital distribution of audio products. I do purchase music as a digital format less often than most people think. The reason is that most delivery methods are compressed. I do believe that compression should be applied judiciously. Not all compression is bad, as I sit listening to music on my iPod on a plane.

I think that people suck. I do not think that persons suck, just that people in general are very self centered and do not think of anyone but themselves. I know that this statement is odd coming back from a vacation, as typically that is when you think most people get more relaxed, and I did.
