You know, for kids!

When we pick up the little guy there is a familiar routine: “Hey, Buddy! How was your day?” “Good”, he says. “Can I check my dragons?” Out comes the iPad and it’s off to DragonVale.
Many of us got new gadgets for our holiday gift, and we immediately started filling them up with apps to play with. We’re no different. Truth be told, there are more apps on our gadgets for him than for us. We thought that we’d share some of his favorites with you.

Some Wishes For 2012

We hope that you had a safe and wonderful holiday season. If you're like us, you probably ate too much. You hopefully got to do this too, with friends and loved ones. And everyone hopefully started 2012 with a delightful new gadget!

That last one was kind of a plug, but you know…

We do have some wishes for 2012, and we thought we’d see how good we are at predicting the future.

Tin Cans & String:  The New Blackberry

Is Big Brother Reading Your Texts?

In case you missed the news, Richmond, Virginia was an international topic on Black Friday. At Short Pump Town Center in the city’s fashionable West End, software and antennas were installed to track shopper’s movements. It used the shopper’s mobile phone. It would tell researchers where shoppers went, how long they stayed, and where they went next. Analysts could then figure out how to market to someone who went to Urban Outfitters for half an hour and then made a beeline to Starbucks.

What’s In Your Diet?

We wanted to start out with a couple of stories.  Real stories, about real people.

Camera Store

The Death of the Camera Store

Driving in Downtown Richmond found me passing by the location of one of my favorite old camera shops.  The place had been around for over 60 years.  It was now closed.

I had gone there for years.  I still have my first camera, a cinderblock heavy Pentax K1000 that served me through school.  Heavy and clunky, it had no auto functions.  It would (and still does) take great shots, but would only do what you commanded it to do, seemingly lacking a soul.

Our Lives Are Richer Because of Steve Jobs

Our Lives Are Richer

Mozart still moves us over 200 years after he last graced the cobblestone streets of Vienna.  We still marvel at the haunting eyes of the Mona Lisa almost 500 years after DaVinci’s paint had dried.  As we type and text we thank Gutenberg and his 1440 treatise Kunst und Aventur (Art and Enterprise).
