Boy, did I love Nintendo! I remember when I got mine. And, when I got new games, I would play and play them until I beat them – sometimes, in a couple of days. I remember going to Phar-Mor in Rivergate to rent games for $1.50/game. Frequently, I would play them for 2-3 days, beat […]

Really cool new features ahead from Microsoft Windows 10.
Fascinating thoughts from Eric Schmidt: “There will be so many IP addresses (…) so many devices, sensors, things that you are wearing, things that you are interacting with that you won’t even sense it.” Surely you will sense it, because you’ll find this magical at-oneness with the digital world far more interesting than, say, the […]
