Ever see one of those square barcode like looking thingys? You can see them now in magazines and on office doors and even on T-shirts. So what is it? Well I did a bit of searching, and found that WikiPedia, has a nice, concise, explanation which I quote […]
I have been running since 1978 (or was it 1977?). Some years I run more than others, some years (especially the last 10) I battle injuries that keep me on the sidelines. Way back when I started (1977, or was it 1978?), running was not something people did, […]
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 […]
My favorite tool on Wiondows 7 has got to be, by far, the Snipping Tool. The only problem is….the only screen capture I can’t grab with Snipping Tool is the Snipping Tool window itself. How funny is that? If you are reading this blog…or just browsing it…you have […]
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. Overall Opinion HoHum, but, at least […]
I spotted this last week and thought it was simply AWESOME. How many times have you fiddled with camera focus (or waited for the automatic focus to get it right) before taking a picture? This new technology, from Lytro, promises to change the way we take photographs. The […]
Been playing around learning Windows 7’s Windows Live Movie Maker. Even though it is not as robust as a paid for movie maker, it is, in my opinion, sufficient for hackers (like me) up to, maybe, the intermediate movie producer. Beyond that, you will have to find something […]
Soooo, are you ready to drop Facebook and move over to Google+??? Well, they are taking requests, but, apparently Google+ is not quite ready for the big time (why announce it and not be ready?????) . It looks interesting though…I will definitely try it and invite some of you to […]

Samsung Chromebook Acer Chromebook Google announced today the availability of their new Google “Chromebook” laptop like computers that will be at Best Buy and Amazon.com starting June 15th. These are laptop like devices that connect to, and use, the “cloud” for everything you do. They are […]
Carol’s mom sent me this via email this morning….VERY FUNNY Windows error message (I wonder if it is real, or just Photoshop???). Drive Safe! Never Forget.
Carol’s mom sent me an email this morning with the link to this video. VERY COOL. For those who care, I also posted a blog entry on my Technical Blog (TelBitConsulting.com) with this video, but, talking about the collaboration, video conferencing, aspects of the Corning vision. You can […]
Carol’s mom forwarded this to me this morning. At first, I thought it was going to be fireworks, ho hum, been there, done that, boooorrrrring. 🙂 BUT, this is awesome. Enjoy. I assume they are using lasers to do this while projected on a large building.
