A Sad Goodbye To Tecca

Just a short note to say that Tecca, one of the best technology websites I’ve ever read, is shutting down this week. I’m so very sad about this, it’s hard to express. Even before I joined the Tecca team I admired the website. I loved the mix of tech news and reviews with space and science stuff and the geeky… Read more →

The Next Big Thing

I’ve typed some variation of this sentence dozens of times over the past few hours, yet typing it again still feels very odd: Today is my last day at Laptop Magazine. Yep, I’m leaving my post as News Editor after almost exactly two years in that position. No, I am not going to This Is My Next like all the… Read more →

New Design Is Almost Complete

I know that I’ve neglected this blog for a long time. It’s mostly due to being so busy at work.

Experiment: Tumblr

I don’t know much about Tumblr but the service intrigues me greatly, so I decided to try it out and experiment with it a little. As it’s meant to be an extension of this blog, my Tumblr will basically be about tech. But my goal is to do more fun stuff around tech, like taking pictures in weird places, recording… Read more →

My Special Fashion Week Appearance

If you’ve seen some of Sony’s latest commercials you may have noted that Justin Timberlake is shilling for them these days. So it’s natural that they’d sponsor the William Rast[1] show at Fashion Week.¬† Thus I got to attend the show and sit in fancy VIP seats right behind one of the most powerful fashion editors evar[2]. Also, Jessica Biel… Read more →
