Show me the Plus!

I will admit up front that I’m definitely not the biggest sports fan in the world. I am however a cord cutter, which means it’s quite difficult to get access to sports content. Being from the Midwest I was raised on basketball, and I still follow both the NBA and NCAA. I also enjoy the…

Building Government 2.0

Building Government 2.0

I very rarely wade into the world of politics, and I have two reasons why. First of all, it’s an ultra corrupt world of backstabbing, lies and grandstanding. None of that is appealing to me.

A Whole New Gold Rush

Call me naive – or worse – but I am pretty excited about the future being an Apple developer. This might seem kind of crazy considering iPhone sales are down and Wall Street is, of course, predicting Apple’s imminent demise (hint : they still had like $10 billion in profit.. I think they can make…

Coffee Crisis

Coffee Crisis

This past two weeks have been traumatic to my morning routine, but it gave me a chance to test out Starbucks online ordering. So the short version is the Starbucks I stop by every morning – MY Starbucks – is temporarily closed for remodeling. The first day I thought nothing of it. I continued on…
