Headphones and a soothing voice are what I’ve been accustomed to for years now when I attempt to get in some recreational reading/listening. Audio books have long been my method of choice simply because multi tasking, say a long road trip or a busy work schedule are made possible. Juggling multiple projects at once fits right in to a busy American lifestyle. Today, however, I rediscovered a past holiday gift to my daughter sitting out on a shelf collecting dust. A tech gadget that I assumed would be the least popular gift that year, as it was related to reading. Continue reading “A Book, on a Nook?”
I read online today that Microsoft was going to try and compete with Google and the Chromebook.

How can you not be interested in the latest Macs just sitting there waiting to lure you in to paying top dollar for the latest in design and function. This is where I can almost hear those die hard PC fans moaning and groaning about the Apple tax people like myself are more than willing to doll out for a reliable machine. YES, yes I am aware of the trendy tax! That being said, I like to think of that Apple area as a mini geek’s playground! You get to click on the keyboards.. you get to swipe on the glass surfaces! You get to imagine how lovely these babies would look on your, desperate for an upgrade, work station. I fall for it every time!
