Geekazine on WISC-TV Talking Cyber Monday Deals

This morning I was on WISC-TV 3 for News 3 This Morning. I talked about Cyber Monday deals for a 3 minute segment at 6:20 am. Charolette Deleste interviewed me for this segment. We started out talking about the history of Cyber Monday. Simply put – 10 years ago, with a lot of homes not having a good internet connection, and a big bulky computer in the public area – Not to mention the kids running around so you can’t shop for their gifts – most people reverted to Monday at lunch time to do their shopping. However, this year we saw a jump in sales because retailers used the whole weekend to give deals. Add to that, a 14% increase in people using their mobile devices to make purchases this weekend, they had a great Black Friday weekend. So now Cyber Monday is here. Charolette asked which websites...

New Theme to Geekazine.com 0

New Theme to Geekazine.com

Over the weekend, I put up the new look to Geekazine. This included the new logo, which I’ve been mulling over for the last 3 months. I wanted something that would show what Geekazine is about. Now it’s out. NOTE: I had to take this poll out because there seems to be a glitch in the program. Look to the left side on Geekazine.com and you will see the poll question. Thanks to those who’ve answered!   There are still a couple items to add to the new theme. The idea is to “Brighten up” the site. Last iteration was great, but it also started looking like too many band-aids were getting put up. The new connection bar (Twitter, Facebook, Google Plus and more) will be up shortly. Take a look, and if you see any issues, please let me know. ITM – let me know if you...

Ford’s New Mustang with Track Apps for Performance Monitoring 0

Ford’s New Mustang with Track Apps for Performance Monitoring

Two weeks ago, I visited Ford in Dearborn, MI for a super-secret unveiling. We were standing out by a building next to the Ford test track – 8:30 pm. Huddled around in the dark, pushed up to the barrier line. Then, a blast of lights came on that pretty much turned night into day. No sooner could our eyes adjust as the lights went off. We heard a rumbling in the background. Then, the lights came on and five cars sped in front of us. Lead in by a 1965 Ford Mustang, we saw the next generation of Mustang. But before we could study the cars, the lights went off and we were shuttled into the building. I had to hold onto that secret until today. But now, after the LA Auto show, we can talk Mustang. The muscle car of Ford has been updated to match the...
