We got three dash buttons yesterday – Tide, Bounty and Glad. Setup was pretty straightforward, although don’t try to run the microwave while you’re trying to pair the button with the app. The concept is pretty interesting, but as soon as we tried to select which Tide product for re-order, we didn’t see our variant… Read More

I got my latest Comcast bill today. A fee increase AGAIN. That makes three (3!) increases since December. My service originally started with Blast, the high speed Internet service. That was $66.99 for my condo in DC. The service is OK, except when it’s not, but there aren’t any real choices, so I’m stuck with… Read More

I spent last week at CES 2015 in Vegas. This show was really different from all past shows. Central Hall, the traditional location for all the glitz and glamour at the Las Vegas Convention Center, was strangely flat.

Donna and I spent most of the first of our three days at CES 2015 at Central Hall.  Fresh from last night’s keynote by Samsung CEO BK Yoon, where he announced that in 5 years 100% of Samsung devices will be Internet of Things (IoT) devices, we first headed to the Samsung exhibit at Central… Read More

Tom and I spent the day at the main show in Central Hall and were both shocked how – well – ordinary it felt. There were plenty of amazing TVs – 4k, 8k, straight, curved, and super thin, thinner than the slimmest smartphone, even! And I loved the door-in-door fridges from LG and the LG… Read More

I’m excited. Tomorrow we head to CES 2015. A lot of the “what to expect” reports are talking about the ultra-HD (i.e. 4k) TVs, the high-res smartphones and phablets,  and the drones. Oh, and the 3D printing space is going to be massive – but really, they need to start printing things besides Hobbits and… Read More
