Yeah, I know I didn’t post one last week. I was on vacation in Joshua Tree (mini-getaway) and didn’t have internet! It happens. But I’m back this week with all the fun stuff I participated in!
This month is completely insane for anyone working in technology. All the companies want to announce their shiny new toys, and we want to see all of them! It’s definitely a challenge to be able to cover it all.
If you’re wondering (probably not), I ordered an iPhone 5 as a second line. Google Voice has been acting really weird lately, and some of my incoming work calls were being forwarded to an unintelligible old man… Plus I wanted one. They’re shiny. Still keeping the EVO LTE, though! I love that phone.
Here’s where I popped up online last week!
- How I Became a Host, Part 2 [Sept 16 2012]: I know, this is a link to a post on this very same blog, but I put it up late last night so you may have missed it! This is the second installment of the story of how I came to host. Here’s Part 1 if you’re REALLY bored. People ask me how I got started a lot, so I decided to write up some posts about my experience.
- Mobile Nations [Sept 17 2012]: The Monday Brief in which I get into iPhone 5 madness, Meg Whitman’s facepalm-worthy words, WP8 going gold, and more.
- Techfoolery Podcast [Sept 15 2012]: Episode #44: “Tech Fattening, But Still Delicious” - A super-size episode this week, packed with all kinds of goodness. Honestly, one of the best podcasts we’ve done, I think. Filled with insight and funny stuff. Try it out if you haven’t!
- G4’s Knuckle Up [Sept 14 2012]: All iOS this week (apparently nobody wanted to release a major Android title the week the iPhone 5 got announced?), but still some good stuff: Time Geeks & Friends, Super Hexagon, Voyager, Wonderputt, and VS Racing 2.
- Tecca’s “Just Show Me” [Sept 10-14 2012]: Using Notification Center in OSX 10.8, Organizing Widgets in OSX 10.8, Using iMessages in OSX 10.8, Creating Location-Based Reminders in OSX 10.8, and Organizing an Event on Facebook. As always, videos for the uninitiated, entry level lover of technology. If you love your new gadget, but have no idea how to really step up the way you use it, Tecca is a great resource.
That’s roll call for all the things, and just like every week, I appreciate your support and viewing. It’s pretty neat that you’re so awesome.
I think I might have a cactus addiction. Every time I come back from the desert, I bring at least one back. Two days ago, I picked up a pair of vintage cowboy boots from the shoe cobbler, and brought them home… along with a 3’ tall San Pedro cactus I picked up on Highway 62. Seriously, you guys. I love the desert.
Rock on, peanut gallery~
