Surface Tension

Oh man, Microsoft really threw down the gauntlet yesterday, didn’t they? I sort of feel like any of those scenes from “You Got Served”¬†where someone pulled off a really awesome dance move and the crowd was like “damnnnnnnn”, and, and….wait, why are you giving me

Textual Intercourse

As a geek, there are certain things that you just inevitably get hooked on. I don’t know what it is, but more than any other subculture, geekery clings to the signature things with which it is associated with the fervor of a giant dog and

The iPad’s Short Term Curiosity

So in the midst of all this food writing I did, I sort of missed the fact that Apple’s iPad, the “magical and revolutionary” multi-touch device, came out to excited Apple users everywhere a few days back. Touted as a mobile tool of convenience with
