Tonight I ate some of the most delicious salmon EVER… and, just as gratifying, I made it! Total prep & cook time: under 10 minutes (seriously).  Total cost: Under $10. Here are before and after pics: Ingredients: Salmon (duh!) Brown rice Real butter (everything’s better with butter!) Spices (I used garlic salt, pepper, and red curry […]

So THIS is a *tiny* glimpse into being a minority…

She walked into the class and noticed right away that no other students looked like her. All men.  Many seemed to already be acquainted, or in a few cases, fast friends.  Clearly they’d been through similar classes before. And halfway through the class, her fears were realized; everyone was more experienced than she was.  More skilled. […]

Waffanas (#1 in Adam’s “Cooking for the Lazy” series)

Mon, 04 Jan 2016 04:26:21 +0000

tl;dr:  Want to save time and scrolling? Pour waffle mix. Throw sliced bananas on it. Wait ’til cooked. Eat. YUM!   Today I made waffanas, my brilliant name for banana-stuffed waffles.  They were super delicious and very easy to make, even for cooking-incompetent and kitchen-lazy people (like me and, perhaps, you). NOTE:  I’m linking to Amazon products below* […]

Relishing those juicy leaked memos? Bad idea.

Sun, 18 May 2014 23:05:15 +0000

The leaking of corporate memos might seem either innocuous, societally useful, or both. In reality, it is typically neither.

In-flight entertainment on planes: Airlines should just give up…

Sun, 27 Apr 2014 20:36:16 +0000

Time for airlines to throw in the towel on seatback screens. Our tablets are more flexible, more personal, and way easier to use. And we can load them up with the (uncensored) movies and music we* want to enjoy.

Fitness wearables: Enough raw numbers; give us smart advice!

From my experience, all the current fitness wearables fail to help us identify correlations that could efficiently and dramatically improve our lives.

Mon, 24 Feb 2014 06:02:53 +0000

'Broken Age' is an utterly charming and delightful game, albeit one that's made a few tough choices so you won't have to.

Moto X – Trusted Bluetooth Device tested products list

Wed, 25 Dec 2013 06:42:11 +0000

What devices work with the Moto trusted bluetooth device feature? Kind folks over at AndroidCentral and I have tried a bunch of devices out so you don't have to ;-).

Why I’ll no longer read your no-comment blog

Mon, 23 Jan 2012 05:14:00 +0000

Earlier this evening, I followed a link from Techmeme and encountered an editorial that was, well, IMHO just flat out wrong.  Inaccurate, illogical, the whole nine yards. As I was reading it, I considered adding a comment to provide corrections and contrasting opinions, but then reconsidered, since it’s just not worth my effort to crime-fight […]

Reflections on the New Year

Sun, 01 Jan 2012 23:09:00 +0000

I had just gotten back from a party.  Quite a fun one at that, with warm friends, delicious chips and true cake, even balconies. But still, something wasn’t right.  The New Year had come, but contrary to my hopes, I still lacked certainty, focus, clarity. Luckily, however, I was prepared.  I know not everything can […]
