Why I use a Mac

Friday, August 30th, 2013

I could give you the typical response of a Mac fan on this one, no viruses, more elegant OS, yada, yada, yada… But I wont. I can summarize my love affair with the Mac with one simple sentence… It does not get in my way. I recently wrote about workflow and tools, hope it was […]

Top 5 Things I hate about working in Latin America

Friday, August 16th, 2013

1. People not being able to say no, or, “I’m not interested.” Instead they string you along. 2. Clients not paying on time or paying what they agreed to. 3. Clients being cheap or pound foolish and penny wise. 4. Extremely poor time management, if you want to have a meeting at 9am, set it […]

Race in America and the Don Lemon Effect…

Tuesday, August 13th, 2013

I normally dont talk Politics on my Business Blog, but wanted to share this with my readers. Interesting discussion on @DonLemonCNN response to Russell Simmons last night. I made a comment in response to some of my Phamily ΖΦΒΣ. I want to break that comment out because in many ways I think it stands on […]

My Experiences with the Palm Pre+

Tuesday, June 29th, 2010

I have spent the last two days playing with a Palm Pre Plus, given to me by a friend at Palm Inc. Been a while since I got any technical swag from my various contacts out there, and this one was very welcome. I have re-fell in Love with my iPhone 3Gs since the release […]

Adventures in iPhone(ing)

Thursday, June 24th, 2010

It’s here, and the new iOS 4 update makes me feel real good about giving up my Blackberry. As usual, I sweated through the process of jailbreaking the phone, using the iPhone Dev Team’s remarkable tools. I was surprised that they released the 4.01 version of their jailbreaking application just ONE DAY after the official […]

The Continuing Stupidity of Microsoft Xbox Support!

Thursday, December 3rd, 2009

In my continuing Saga of trying to get a reasonable compromise on Support from Microsoft on their Defective Xbox 360 Product, they have apparently decided I am not understanding “piss off,” in English so they sent me an email in Spanish tonight. Estimado David Anderson, He intentado comunicarme con usted el numero telefonico provisto (+506-8876-9807) […]

Is it time for a class action lawsuit against Microsoft for the Xbox fiasco?

Tuesday, December 1st, 2009

As you know, I have been fighting a running battle with Microsoft for the last four or five days over servicing my DEFECTIVE Xbox. Each answer from them gets more ridiculous. Below is their latest, with my answer to them at the top. As I have explained before, but apparently you guys are NOT reading […]

Busy Morning

Saturday, March 14th, 2009

Today I set out to get some work done on my/our internet presence. Part of my problem has been that we started the Utopia Group with no REAL Web Strategy. The domains were purchased and the not much more than setting up email accounts was done on most of them. The Grupo Utopia Site is […]

Interested development professionals, researchers, faculty, and graduate students should register as soon as possible, as demand means that seats will fill up quickly. Please […]
