Friends Come to San Francisco

Friends Come to San Francisco

It’s been about 6 months since I’ve moved to San Francisco. This city is crazy, I love it, I hate it, and I can’t imagine what life would have been like had I stayed in Rochester. At the age of 25, I regret nothing about this move, and even if I end up back in Rochester in a few years, the experience that my self and Sarah are having here is something we’ll remember forever. The weekend of Halloween, we…

Lenovo N22 – Thoughts Part 3 – Final

Lenovo N22 – Thoughts Part 3 – Final

The morning of my flight to Las Vegas a month ago, I made the executive decision that I couldn’t travel with my new Lenovo. I was planning on bringing my Retina MacBook, and I needed to bring Dell 7450 for a user, and the addition of another laptop? The TSA would probably think I was a mule. I love the portability of the 12″ Retina MacBook, but it’s not a powerful machine at all, halfway through typing a line for…

Thoughts on Trump’s Election. A Few Days Later.

Thoughts on Trump’s Election. A Few Days Later.

These last few days were rough. I’m not quite sure what to make of this. But as I said, we’re not going to take this laying down. We will not get complacent. It started Wednesday morning, friends sharing some articles about how “it’ll be ok, it’ll get better” and you know what? That’s NOT what I want to hear right now. We’re fired up, we’re angry, and by telling us that it’s going to be ok, then we’re get complacent….

Microsoft Doing Big Things

Microsoft Doing Big Things

Today Microsoft announced some new things in the Windows 10 and Surface World. For the first time in a LONG time I was wowed. I’ve hands on lately with a Lenovo Yoga 900, the touchscreen was pretty, the watchband inspired hinge is engineering beauty, but today when I saw them announce the Surface Studio, I was floored.

In Search of a Lightweight Linux Distribution

In Search of a Lightweight Linux Distribution

The first decision, for many Linux users with a new machine, is what distro to install? Now I understand that many users that have been using Linux for some time have settled on one main distribution they prefer, that they’ve come to know, etc. In my case, I prefer Debian on my main laptop, (although use of a Fedora VM has me curious about other distros), but the machine I’m hunting for a distro to install isn’t as powerful as…

What is the Future of Mac? Pro-Sumer Not Professional.

What is the Future of Mac? Pro-Sumer Not Professional.

Let me start this article with one thing. I love Apple computers. I love Apple in general. I’ve read the books, seen the movies, watched the documentaries. The first computer I ever used was an old Mac, I can’t remember the model. I had a 2009 MacBook Pro that got me through college and then some, it lasted 7 years before it met it’s end at the hands of a beferage. My previous and current position consist of support Macs,…

Riding a Bike in San Francisco

Riding a Bike in San Francisco

There are a lot of cyclists in San Francisco. Many ride road or mountain bikes, something with gears, but you’ll often see bike messengers riding fixed gear bikes or single speed up and down Market St, weaving in and out of traffic rather impressively. I made sure that my car during my first drive from Rochester to San Francisco had enough room for my bike, a Trek Earl I purchased a few years back. I knew that I wouldn’t be…
