We are at an age where if we lose our connected devices, we feel lost or even violated. Not only is this a gateway to our friends and family through social apps, but it also contains our pictures, documents, lives – all on a smartphone, tablet, or computer. Last July I had my iPhone stolen […]

Today, Steve Ballmer announced he will be retiring in 12 months. This was set to a lot of mixed emotion. In this world of high technology, CEOs seem to have a good exit plan – Bill Gates had Ballmer in mind when he retired and Steve Jobs had Tim Cook. Ballmer has no one in […]

Last week I had a great opportunity to not only cover a conference, but also fulfill a life-long dream – go to Disneyland. Since I have grown up in the Midwest, doing something like Disneyland was a pipe dream. I knew eventually I would get there – which I finally did last week. At first […]
It’s really simple. I was tired of not seeing anything new. I was frustrated in looking at the new releases section on my Roku, and seeing Rescue Me there for the last 6 months. I was annoyed at playing the game “Find a movie I really want to watch”. Fact is, I stopped going to […]

I talk about them on my show iPad365. You might have a few of them on your smartphone or tablet. They might be simple games – sliding a wood block around – to complex games that take you to new worlds to destroy beasts. They could even just connect you with others to show your […]
So I listened to the State of the Union address last night, which was pretty uneventful. There were many themes that were brought to issue. One of them is not losing jobs to overseas workers and not giving tax breaks to those who do. Yet, President Barack Obama singled out one entrepreneur for his integrity in […]

Last night I wrote “I Quit” on my Social Networks. Today I explain my actions and also the resignation.
While Qwikster is not a name that screams DVD rentals, is it a good name to have? Is it a sign Netflix doesn’t have a handle on their company?
Hi. I’m Jeffrey Powers and I’m a Google+ addict. I was in a hangout last night that was going pretty well. We were talking about developing in different program languages. But there was a point where I stopped talking and listened (I guess I was getting tired). After 20 minutes of listening, I knew that […]
Yesterday I read that More Blockbuster stores are closing. Blockbuster is falling – with a losing 2010 and not a very great first half of 2011. Yet Netflix and Redbox seem to be doing pretty well. I don’t get it – Doesn’t Blockbuster see the writings on the wall? More important, why are they not […]
Today, Mark Zuckerberg announced Video Calling with Microsoft’s new acquisition in Skype. However, Mark’s presentation wasn’t that of a Steve Jobs (nor does it have to be). Nonetheless, a good presentation is important. We look at what Zuckerberg did wrong and how to fix it.

But all of a sudden it sparked emotion out of me; I got peeved at this article and more peeved that it was on Mashable. […]
This is one of the most impressive LEGO projects I have seen in a while. It’s doesn’t take a lot of LEGOs to build, but the precision that is involved makes it the most impressive. Here is the history: What was thought to be Greek technology turned out to Babylonian. Around the first century BC, […]
WiFi can save your life. Ford announced they have created intelligent vehicles that are talking to their surroundings. The idea is when one car is approaching too fast, your car can warn you and slow down. If a car breaks down, it sends a signal so the other cars are warned. “Ford believes intelligent vehicles […]
