  • Apple iPad2 and Vidyo

    A friend shared this short video on Google+ today.  Pretty amazing stuff. Oh yeah…my friend lives in Italy and works for the New Jersey based company that developed the video chat software shown in this video.  Vidyo (see my getting older review of Vidyo here). Drive Safe!  Never Forget.

  • Facebook Skype Video Chat

    Well, it seems that Facebook now offers point-to-point video chatting from within Facebook. Good for them!  BUT…point-to-point is kinda useless…just saying.  I have more than one friend I like to chat with, and all the Bay Shore Kids could have a reunion.

  • Einstein The Talking Parrot

    Chau sent me this via email this morning!  Amazing bird. Einstein is an African Grey Parrot and is the star of the Knoxville (TN) Zoo’s bird show. If you want to read a terrific book (Fiction) dealing with genetically engineered animals, including one very smart parrot, read “Next” by Michael Crichton. Drive Safe!  Never Forget.
