Tivo Bolt, my response

TL;DR I’m a big fan of Tivo but sadly the service provided is outdated and too expensive. I was one of those extreme loyal followers of Tivo in the past. I had 2 Tivo boxes and I carried one of them with me on trips   It was so easy to bring one with me to watch the backlog of shows and leave the other one at home to keep recording local programming. Plus, at home, that’s how I got my 4 tuners years before there was a box that could do that. Sadly, I still love Tivo’s UI and ease of use but I think it’s way too expensive […]

getKuna Security Light may not be worth it

I tried to submit this review from their email they sent me but their site is having xml / xslt errors :p I’ll post it here, I think the public will appreciate it. There’s a TL;DR area at the bottom but it’s worth reading if you’re trying to decide on purchase: I spend a lot of time talking to customer support through email, especially Christopher about some real shortcomings in the system and policy as far as the Kuna goes. I purchased this to be a real dependable security solution yet I am always left to wonder if it’s really working and if I can really rely on it. The […]

Pre-New Year Excitement!

What a year it’s been. Just about a year ago, December 24th, 2014, I got my first job back in the computer field after deciding that the medical field was no longer for me.  Not to dwell on the past any longer than I have to, but I was held back from my original intentions of being a doctor all those years ago because of not being able to pass all the board exams. Even after I received my degree and finished my education and all that was expected of me. I was down an depressed for so long. I even entered the medical imaging field thinking I should just […]

What the best web technology to use on a personal website?

This was a question posed on Quora yesterday. The questioner received no answers at the time so I thought I’d give him a suggestion (in my humble opinion). Here is my reply: I don’t think there is a best technology for a personal website. You should just use what you know or what you want to know. I’ll give you my example, I am a career changer and I did go to a code academy to beef up my coding skills. I needed a personal portfolio site in order to get a job.  I had just learned Ruby On Rails so I thought I’d use that but I didn’t have […]

First thoughts on the Apple Watch

I’ve spent about 2 days with my Apple Watch now, I must say, as most Apple products are, it’s very easy to use. It’s also very easy to set up. After opening up my watch and turning it on, it took less than 10 minutes to input my information and tell it that I did not want it to bring all the apps I had on my iPhone that could be imported to my watch. After that, it was ready to go. It came with about 60% power and I was off to the races. Throughout the day, I did things like bring over some apps, set up my “glances,” […]

Finally Getting My Apple Watch Monday

So, I should be getting my Apple Watch this Monday. I’ve heard a lot of talk lately about how it’s just not worth the money, how it’s the best device for active people, and about how the specialness of the device runs out very quickly. In the end, I’ll decide for myself, but how do you feel? Everyone who reads this post, and has an Apple Watch, if you can take a few moments and let me know your opinions, it would go a long way in helping me think about how I should judge this device. Do you love it? Do you hate it? Do you feel like you […]
