Celebrate timeless beauty with the Limited Edition HP 12c

by on August 31st, 2011

Celebrating 30 years of greatness usually occurs in a club, or in a tropical destination with all of your closest friends – at least in my world, but in HP’s world it’s held in a very intimate setting, with folks passionate in a plethora of things. That’s how my Tuesday evening began. Actually, it began after I greeted HP’s lovely Laura Harich, and then spotted a fellow CMU alum, whose father was also in attendance, who also loved CMU…great times! I love running into my fellow Tartans everywhere I go – especially when its at a technology event, or simply an event that brings working brains together.

Back to the topic at hand – in a dimly lit backroom, hidden in a steakhouse in the financial district, I was introduced to HP’s masterpiece – the HP 12c. I didn’t tell a soul in the room that I had never heard about the 12c, but now, shoot, I can talk to you all for at least an hour about it.

Web Wednesday: FHumor.com

by on August 31st, 2011

FHumor.com is the reason I couldn’t go back to sleep today, after waking up at 4 am and going on Facebook to ‘kill’ time, or read myself to sleep…a friend linked a picture from this site and I went and 15 minutes later, I was still clicking to pictures – cracking up.

(BTW-I blame not being unable to fall back to sleep on the amount of oxygen my cells received from laughing as much as I did)

Check out the site…I guarantee this will become a bookmark that you frequently visit when you have time to kill or need a good laugh…

Lenovo’s New Android Tablets

by on August 31st, 2011

There are times when I receive invites and I’m not sure if I should feel super cool, or if I’m just Mike’s +1. Yesterday, despite being Mike’s +1, I felt super duper cool because we had an evening of 3 tech events – back to back to back. Needless to say, we only made it to two – but probably the best two I’ve been to this year.

Lenovo – our first stop had a beautiful set up at the W in Union Square NYC. I love Lenovo – and for more reasons than just being ex-IBMers, like myself. I have been a ThinkPad fan since my college days – Carnegie Mellon encouraged its students to get IBM laptops, and in the graduate business school, it was mandated (if I remember correctly). The computers are great – they’re durable, last a long time, don’t crash, feel nice and they have the lovely reminder to ‘think’…it’s wonderful.

Favorite Website of the Week: ZocDoc.com

by on August 29th, 2011

logo_header_b__201108271505 Ever needed a specific doctor/dentist and couldn’t find them?

Limited availability? Traveling for work? Living in a new city?

I’m sure you’ve said yes to at least one of those questions and have been frustrated by the runaround that some insurance companies give you, even if you’re searching online.  There is never enough information – either the phone number is missing, or you can’t see their availability.

The answer is ZocDoc.com – a good friend just told me about it this week and I’ve already used it.  It’s FREE, easy and reliable.

Thanks for Nothing HP & Apple

by on August 28th, 2011

stocksdownThanks – my 401k probably went down another 9% this week because of you two.  How is the tech world supposed to move forward with this uncertainty of what next i-gadget is coming out, or if they will continue being cool.

And HP – damnit HP.  Can you not do such a good job at confusing the heck out of the world…

HP TouchPad…cute…not so great web OS, but still sexy…$499…and then $99…

Come onnnn…why not send a memo to your top fans, like me…now I can’t buy one anymore and I even though I signed up for the ‘please pick meeeeeeee’ website, for those that are still interested, I’m still not hopeful. I bet I was potential HP TouchPad buyer #29485723542394.

by on August 26th, 2011

What the…crap?

Did I just read that?

That is what I asked myself this morning when I read about this new device that may potentially hit our markets…

A waterproof USB drive that vibrates and stores…stuff…

I am still confused and waiting for the “haha, just kidding…” but I think it may be real.

The Future Project – and why you should join the movement to inspire

by on August 26th, 2011

There are many folks who hate to read, yet spend their day online…do they not know they’re reading? Well, the difference is that they’re probably reading something they enjoy – something they are passionate about.

The Future Project used a very similar analogy to frame their mission. There are too many students that are not motivated, not graduating, not excelling because they just aren’t connected or engaged with their work/school/community/body/etc (add whatever else you want).

The power of words…or lack of…

by on August 26th, 2011

I love words – because of words, you folks visit CuteGeek.com and we appreciate that.

But so much can be said, without saying it…it’s like love. Don’t tell me you love (fool), show me (babe)…

I have two videos to show you that exemplify the power of our eyes, and how easily we can drive a point without spelling out what it is.
