We need to get away from the social media platforms and get back to RSS. The web and the Internet are the platforms. RSS is the protocol for the decentralization everyone craves....

Pixel 6 update: Buy my Pixel 6!

That’s right. For the low low price of whatever it auctions for on Ebay you too can have your very own Pixel 6. I’m setting the starting price at $400.00. That’s a little over half of what it cost me new. If it ends up being higher than that...

Senators to introduce legislation to access your social media data

Let’s file this under, “What could go wrong?” The bill, to be announced Thursday by Sens. Chris Coons (D., Del.) Rob Portman (R., Ohio) and Amy Klobuchar (D.,Minn.), would allow researchers to submit proposals to the National Science Foundation. If the NSF supports a proposal, social-media platforms would be...

Pixel 6 update: I wish I returned it in time

I’m well past the two week return period and I wish I wasn’t. The behind the screen fingerprint sensor is so bad that I disabled it and will now go security free on the lock screen. I’ve grown accustomed to using the fingerprint sensor on the back of my...

Windows 11 Widgets Won’t Work

Right outta the box! Well… more like right off the upgrade. I just installed the Windows 11 upgrade on my Dell XPS13 and took it for a test drive and right off the bat the Widgets pane won’t open. Yes, I rebooted. I don’t know if I’ll even use...

Facebook sees a world where you’ll make great friends in the virtual world but hate those same people in the real world. Not only that but Facebook will be the source of that rift. For those that dive in wish you all the misery Facebook wishes to provide....

A regular person’s review of the Pixel 6

I wasn’t going to do it. But I did. I bit the bullet and purchased a Pixel 6 because the battery life on my Pixel 3 is getting to the point where I need to plug it in several times a day and the phone’s hardware feels like it’s...

Technology refugee

This is a rant on computer and phone technology going in a different direction than I need it to be. Nothing fits what I want or what I do. Upgrade to the New Windows 11 OS | Microsoft 5G Google Pixel Phones – Google Store Episode 22 Value 4...

Google just saved me $1,100!!

How did they do that you might ask? By not having their cutting edge technology working. I’m still on a Pixel 3. I skipped the Pixel 4 and Pixel 5 because they just were not desirable phones for me. The Pixel 6 gets announced today and while the phones...

Technology rapidly replacing restaurant staff

Just say no to hiring. Competing against the federal government in hourly pay is a no win situation. Private business can’t compete against an entity that doesn’t have to turn a profit and has the ability to print money at will. High end restaurants might still need a wait...
