Farewell Mr. Jobs

I am a technology geek. I know this is shocking. Probably none of you could tell. It started young for me. When all of my friends were buying the first Atari I was saving up paper route money to buy my first computer (A Commodore Vic 20). I was an early adopter of Apple products. […]

Digital Comic Book Pricing

I am not going to be making a few of my friends happy today. This blog will annoy them to no end. I truly understand their pain but it doesn’t change how I feel. Comic book stores are dead. Some of them just don’t know it yet. DC could have and should have delivered the […]

The New DC Universe

So if you read comics (and maybe even if you don’t) you know DC Comics is about to hit the reset button on all of their comics this week. 52 brand spanking new comics will start rolling out with the publication of the Justice League #1 on Wednesday. Then every Wednesday we will get about […]

Apple Police State

I stumbled across an article a few weeks back that talked about an amazing new technology being developed by Apple. It seems they want to put out a commercial device that would disable the iPhone, iTouch, and iPad from recording sound, taking pictures, or video. Apparently, the thought process behind this is to allow musicians […]

Weiner’s Wiener & Other Tales of Stupid

When stories first started appearing that New York Congressman Anthony Weiner had sent a picture of his love pump to some unfortunate soul on Twitter I was willing to give him the benefit of the doubt. Twitter accounts get hacked all the time. I didn’t totally believe it but I like to wait for actual […]

Unless you were abducted by aliens (hope they didn’t probe too hard) or fallen completely off the grid, you heard the news. It sent shockwaves across the comic universe. DC Comics is starting over. Every superhero book will get a relaunch at number 1. All of their superhero books will become more current and younger […]

Naughty, Naughty, Apple

You ever get the strange, creeping sensation that someone is watching you? You quickly turn around and look but no one is there. The feeling lingers in the pit of your stomach leaving you paranoid and uneasy. Well, I am here to tell you that you are not crazy. Your every move is being watched […]

Ooh Shiny iPad 2

It took awhile for Apple to ship it to me but my iPad 2 finally arrived on Monday. Now I am not saying I rushed home at lunch like a complete salivating technology geek (okay, I did rush home and there might have been some drool) but when FedEx notified me it had been delivered […]

New York Times Slapping Down the Paywall

They said they were going to do it and they have kept their word. Today, the New York Times slapped a paywall on their site effective March 28th in the United States (Canada gets a head start on the whole paying thing because, hell, whose afraid of Canada complaining). That intake of oxygen you heard […]

I Need Minions

I would like to take a break and step away from the media frenzy known as  “what crazy ass things” did Charlie Sheen do today and well do anything other than read about the man’s public meltdown. This includes a willingness to eat Brussels sprouts, have my body hair removed by boiling hot lava (okay […]
