Playstation Vita… I think I’ll wait.

The day is here and the Playstation Vita is out. I’ve messed around with one at the local Gamestop and I’m just not as excited as I once was. The UMD import tool is not available in the U.S. and the system uses proprietary cables and memory cards. There isn’t any on-board storage in the […]

Gone back to iPhone

So I tried it. I really did. I spent almost a month in the Android ecosystem trying to love my Sony Ericsson Xperia Play. Alas, yesterday I returned to the iPhone. I found the Xperia Play a little slow. Switching between a game and texting was painfully slow. The text app also didn’t sort messages […]

Making the switch… back to Linux/Windows

I’ve been a long time Mac fan. I made the switch back in 1996 and was even more hooked after the move to Unix as the core of Mac OS in 2000. I have had an Apple laptop as my primary work machine since the G3 Pismo model. I’ve been working more and more with […]

Apple refunds my Lion purchase

I filed a trouble ticket with the Apple App store reguarding my purchase of Lion and my plan to return to Snow Leopard. Apple has said they will return my money for Lion since I was dissatisfied and won’t be using the software. Well done Apple. Your customer service is good. Too bad your marketing […]

WWDC 2011, not so exciting after all

Apple’s WWDC keynote gave Steve Job’s the opportunity to show off the new MacOS X, the new iOS and the iCloud service, none of which seem to be all that exciting.  I was left with more questions than answers after the show.  Here’s just a few of them: If Lion is a download only install […]

Commodore C64x to ship before June 15th

The web store at CommodoreUSA.net is showing a mid to late June ship date for the C64x computer.  I can’t wait to get one of these.  I had a C64 in the 80’s with which, like more Commodore users, I engaged in an emotional attachment.  The machine itself was wonderful and I learned a great […]

Working with OS/2 Warp in Virtualbox

For the past few days I’ve been working to run OS/2 Warp on my Macbook Pro.  Some of this is for nostalgia but I’m also interested in seeing if one can use a non-standard operating system for infosec purposes (i.e. Pen Testing, Digital Forensics, etc.) I’m using VirtualBox on a Macbook Pro running Snow Leopard. […]

The AF is trying to get control of social media

Slashdot had an article Air Force Wants Hundreds of Fake Online Identities but I think this is a misnomer.  In light of recent frauds committed by Facebook criminals abusing Air Force officers’ identifies I think this is a good move on the part of the Air Force and I believe we’ll see several government organizations and […]

A little free media relations advice for Time Warner’s CEO

Time Warner’s CEO is pejorative in his comments about Netflix.  Sorry Jeff, being dismissive of a new technology isn’t smart business it only serves to show your company as defensive and behind the times.  Anyone recall Steve Ballmer’s reaction to the first iPhone in an interview?  He dismissed it as being less than significant because […]
