With the holiday season upon us and only ten days until Christmas, the topic of gift giving is on most people’s mind. This topic has intrigued me this year more than any other year, maybe because I am getting older, but I realized I needed to give it some serious thought.
A few weeks ago I purchased the HP Chromebook 11 from the Google Play store, which was my first encounter with a Chromebook. For as long as I can remember I have been using Windows-based PC’s and laptops. I knew my days with Windows were over, due to the never-ending crashes, non-responsive applications and the unrelenting downloads to update. It was time to move on.
I recently came across an article about the new Steam Machine beta by Valve. The concept of taking the traditional PC gamer market and consolidating it into a piece of hardware that can neatly be deployed in your entertainment system is intriguing. Personally, I have been waiting for the launch of the Xbox One, but this new platform might be a game changer, no pun intended.
Test Number 1
Okay, so this is going to be my first test using Siri’s Voice to Text in Google Docs to record my blog post on my iPhone. My first attempt was longer than thirty seconds and nothing showed up. It wasn’t a good way to start, but I quickly realized you need to record in short bursts of thirty seconds or less.
For the first time since I started my personal blog, I’ve completed my first major website redesign. There was plenty of debate going on in my head trying to decide the direction of this site and all of my future projects. I ultimately decided the WordPress.org platform provided me with ultimate flexibility, and had the most robust community of open source developers. Yes, I realize I am late to the party but better late than never.
