EFF Patent Busting
In an fantastic display of their freedom motivated spirit the EFF is going after the removal of several patents that are just to broad and vague to be issued to any one entity. Most of these are not just broad but also in existence and widely used prior to the patent application, making the attempt to patent them a ridiculous idea that would stifle creativity. Check it out for yourself and join the Patent Busting.

Dell Latitude D810
This laptop is nice enough, I LOVE (yes, love) the screen resolution. The HDD space is OK, 1GB RAM is not so much anymore when photoshop routinely eats up 600+MB. The Wireless is good but I could have sworn that I spec'd out Bluetooth and I don't think that it works. Oh well... It is nice to have all that screen real-estate.

Sony MDR-EX51
I dont know what is up with these headphones but the cable shielding is really weak and has degraded over a very short time. Now the shielding is coming off and cracking and somewhat softer than the other sony earbuds that I have had.

Infrared Camera
This is just a hack of an older infrared camera that I got for one of my birthdays but I love this thing. I continue to tweak it and I am working on an infrared light to go with it but I want something with the light output of a flash but yet this camera has no flash so it would be difficult to sync. How about a 500watt halogen flood with a visible light filter?? Just kidding...

Just before the baby was born... A New iPAQ
I got my first 3715 just before Maya was born. It has an integrated 1.2MP HP Photosmart digital cam, WiFi, Bluetooth, and a 400Mhz processor...

It is nice enough to tide me over until I get my 4705...

My Precious... My Versary Present... OH MY PRECIOUS..
I received my new Laks Memory Music watch for my anniversary from my WONDERFUL, THOUGHTFUL, CARING, SPECTACULARLY BEAUTIFUL WIFE!! This last Saturday. It is a great and wonderous thing and brings me much joy. I am just amazed at how well thought out it was and yes, it is big, but not too big. I am really in geek heaven now having 256MB of ultra-portable MP3 goodness... Audiobooks, music, and file storage all on your wrist. It even has...

Still considering the ScotteVest
After ordering my MP3 watch from LAKS I am still considering the ScotteVest as a possible present for my anniversary. Why, it just has so many cool things to it and it will hold all of my digital devices (with the exception of my TabletPC). Wish it would hold that one as well.

Got it!!
Received my new tablet pc today... Toshiba M205 with great specs and I have to say that it is liberating. I already feel less chained to the desktop even though I am not exactly mobile at work. I am very excited!!!

4G iPod - just got one
Let's face it, the battery life on the 3G iPods just plain sucked. The 8 hours quickly turned to 5 hours if you were a power user. About now you notice that a new guy is on the block and in the stores, and he is $100 cheaper... The 4G iPod boasts the same battery life but after some tweaking Apple has gotten it to last 12 hours between charges. I swapped mine and have to say that you should be aware before you rush to BB to further exploit their warrantee that the new one is of course smaller and...

Anniversary Present
The present from my wonderful Tina is a Laks Memory Music watch that is a 256MB MP3 playing watch. It is quite expensive and sells branded by BMW through their enthusiast sites for $275 but of course I am getting the unbranded version which is cheaper by about a third. (Crazy people have too much money) I am pretty excited about it and plan to wear it every day.

My First Entry
My first entry includes an Apple Airport Express with the purpose of extending my current wireless network to better cover my bedroom and provide ability to serve my new Hauppauge MediaMVP (Music Video and Pictures) set-top-box (or STB) and extend the availability of the digital media that I download and record/rip.

I am having issues getting the Airport Express working with my current Netgear FWAG114 Prosafe VPN Firewall wireless router...

Does anyone know if the Netgear...
