Many of the products that will be on the shelves later in the year end up being shown at this conference. Running from January 10th to the 13th, it’s short – but it makes up for that brevity in sheer volume of interesting products. These days, I mainly watch with an eye to seeing what’s next in technology. So, let me take you through some of the more interesting stuff to come out of this year’s show.
Many folks seem to be a bit confused about this. Since I’m a frequent visitor of Starbucks stores time and time again I hear that it’s not possible to pay for purchases at the counter with an Android phone. I hear that there is no official Starbucks application on the Android platform. I hear all sorts of things, so let me set the record straight on this so you have happily ditch (or, keep it in a safe place) that Starbucks card and start paying with your Android phone.
Recently, I tweeted about a nightmare-ish experience while ordering from DirectDial. Given that I was short on details with my tweet, I wanted to take the time to expand on what happened.
You might remember my predictions from last year. This is something I do as a fun aside, just to see how many things I can get right in the coming months. By no means do I have a magical ability to see the future, but I do get things right from time to time. So, sit back an take a look at last year first – I’ll go over what I got right, and what I got wrong. After that, I`ll move on to 2012 with a new set of predictions.
I’m back with another blog from the past! This one I would place sometime in 2001 or earlier with an update on May 13, 2004. One of the most amazing facts about this post is that IExpress is still in Windows! This small utility is still included in Windows 7 and I would even expect it […]
I had such a scenario for a client and the information available from Microsoft was cloudy at best (See, Microsoft IS investing in the cloud!). In this case, the client was running Windows 7 Professional x64 and required Windows XP for a number of his internal applications. In this article I’ll explain what the “obtains and installs Windows XP” process entails and how much it will cost.
I take lots and lots of screenshots on all the platforms I use. One of the best platforms for screenshots, however, is the Mac. You may know that on the OS X platform, a region-based screenshot is extremely easy to do with a Command-Shift-4 keyboard shortcut. Nothing like that exists on Windows (except for the print […]
As we’ve learned from recent Google Reader changes – this type of change results in a serious backlash. But, don’t fret – I have some tips to help you make better use of the free Logmein product. In some case you can simulate the features previous lost by Logmein’s changes.
The Internet has simply exploded with information and ideas from people. If you go to one news site, you may see completely different news stories than you would at another – not to mention not finding what you’re looking for at either one of them. There is a way to see more information in a more personalized manner.
I’m a big user of the Android Operating System. I’ve been using it for some time since having the first Android phone, the T-Mobile G1 in late 2010 and now, recently, the Nexus S. I’m really not a fan of the iPhone – in fact, I can’t take that phone seriously. What is most interesting […]
