Tweeting From Walmart
posted on Sep 13 2010

Of all my favorite events from the wedding weekend, tweeting from Walmart was by far my favorite.

Here’s the story: I was in Olive Branch, MS. I got bored. I went to Walmart. I tweeted, with pictures some of the items I found. Glory.

You can view the session by searching the term #TweetingFromWalmart. It was an abbreviated session due to the dying iPhone battery that mine and every iPhone possesses.

My favorite item – Budweiser and Bud Light pajama bottoms – is above. Don Draper could sell these products with the tag line: “Budweiser pajamas… have on you, what’s in you.”






Abandoning the iPad
posted on Aug 10 2010

Wow. A writer for Gizmodo (along with many of those at Gizmodo’s staff) have lost the desire to use their iPads.

Three months ago I couldn’t imagine a life without my iPad’s big beautiful screen. Today, I am living that life. having ditched my iPad for the iPhone 4, almost completely. What the sh*t.

…and right at the time where I was thinking of getting an iPad. Though I must say, I simply want a larger iPhone. Chelsea and I catch ourselves dropping the laptops, and picking up our iPhones most nights. It’s easy to hold, use, scroll though, and type on. The iPad? I’ve played with it many times… not so easy to type on. Which takes me back to the need for a, oh, say… 7-inch model?

  • E-Reader obsession
    posted on Jan 6 2010

    With Instapaper full-force in its support of e-readers, sitting around reading my saved articles on a glaring computer screen isn’t something I want to spend my nights doing anymore.

    I want one. Now.

    I left work early on Thursday (but who didn’t leave work early Thursday) in order to swing by BestBuy and Barnes & Noble to play with the Sony E-Reader and the Nook. The Nook feels incredible, but it didn’t get too high of a praise in the gadget world.

    I read a lot of web articles, magazines, and PDFs (trade journals and older published works). Books? Not so much.

    This is my new dream, unless the Apple unicorn tablet turns out to be for mobile computing what iPhone was for mobile technology.

    Any of you who currently own (or are thinking about owning) one, comment below or shoot me an email with .
