Ad from a computer magazine for the Newton 2100The Apple Newton is one of those devices that I had been keeping my eyes on for a while. I wasn't sure when the original device was released - the original messagepad - but I know that it was out in the market when I came back from Greece. While I was in Greece I couldn't really afford to spend money on computer magazines, as much as I wanted
Ghostbusters 2016 trailer looks great! :)
I had my doubts about the New Ghostbusters film (mostly because I thought they were going with the old ghostbusters just rehashed), but this seems like it's going to be a really good film picking up from where the original quartet left off! Can't wait to see it :-)

Tablets are dead...not!
Every now and again I come across a piece of clickbait that I just can't help but to click on. This past week I saw this piece on TechCrunch the other day, supposedly proclaiming that tablets are dead. The main thesis of the article is that since there wasn't a lot of brand new, innovative, product in the tablet lines at MWC (mobile world congress) that the tablets are now a commodity

Retro-Futuristic: The Newton smartwatch
Every now and again you see some retro-inspired futuristic gadgets. I am not sure where I came across this, but here it is - the Apple Newton Watch - complete with mini stylus ;-) I wonder what the specs for this thing are...
It's super Tuesday! Go Vote!
I can't believe it's here! Super Tuesday! For those of you abroad, this is when a lot of states hold their primary elections (instead of having an election here and an election there in scattered form). This is usually when front-runner nominees show up.I can't believe that Trump is projected to win Massachusetts (I mean...seriously people!) Good thing I am independent and I can vote in
