An App for That

by on Monday, November 14th, 2011

The new catchphrase this year has got to be, “There’s an app for that.” I read today that there are over 1 million apps. How in the hell can a normal person stay on top of all those apps? That is crazy to think we, the general public, have such a great need, desire and demand for little bits of software to solve all our problems or make life so much easier for us.

The only app that I can thin of that would help me is one that would tell me exactly where I set down my cell phone or car keys, or did someone move them in a cleaning frenzy. I think at least once a week I am searching for my damn phone because it is not where I thought I left it.

Notebook vs Netbook vs Tablet

by on Monday, November 7th, 2011

My girlfriend has been dropping big hints about wanting a netwbook. I thought it would be smart to go to Electronics Express and take a look at the netbooks. I haven’t really paid much attention to them – they are cheap and small and not something I’ve been worried about. I have a big screen laptop that I love and would never be happy with a tiny 9″ netbook screen.

So I went into the store and told the guy I was looking for something for my girlfriend, maybe her Christmas present. Of course, she was not with me, and I am not sure spending that much money on something for her is a good idea without her along to tell me which ones she likes. But I took a look at what they had, and damn those things are small. I guess she could drop one into her big ass purse and be a happy girl.

I have to think about it before I make a decision about going with a small one or getting her a new tablet, which is the way I would go. At least I know what the netbooks look like now, and if she has her heart set on one, then I guess Santa will have to pony up.

Spotty Coverage

by on Thursday, August 18th, 2011

If you travel and use a cell phone, you will appreciate the fact that a couple of companies do a much better job at service area coverage than others. Even though cell phones have been in use for over 20 years, there are still huge gaps in coverage across the country.

I was shocked when my Sprint cell phone did not get a signal at all for three days while I drove through parts of Maryland and Pennsylvania. This is a pretty populated area and I expected to be able to call business contacts at least from the hotels at night. There are still parts of Delaware that do not have wi-fi in the hotels.

This is 2011 people! Get caught up with technology!

Newest WordPress

by on Sunday, July 10th, 2011

Believe me, I know full well that WordPress is free. I have been using WordPress for about three, maybe three and a half years. But it sure seems like lately I have to install way too many updates. This is the WordPress newest version and then all my plugins have to be monitored and updated. This is getting to be very cumbersome. I wish they would only do an upgrade once or twice a year. Not 2 and 3 times a month like it has been lately.

Trade show

by on Monday, June 8th, 2009

A couple of times a year our delivery company goes to a trade show and this year will be no different. Every year we put up trade show exhibits and this year we will be getting our trade show exhibit from Gilbert Displays. This will be the first year we have worked with this company and from what I have seen so far this will be our best year ever. Over the years we have went from having a single table to having a full sized display with video and I am sure that this years display for the trade show will be bigger and better than ever.

Gilbert Displays has every thing you need from the ground up for your trade show display, Gilbert Displays designs and custom makes the displays for the trade show displays and I think  that is out of this world. I love the imagination that goes into building a trade show display booth and I think that Gilbert Design has itself at the top of the field in designing trade show displays. Check out the web site for Gilbert Displays at http://www.gilbertdisplays.com/ to see if they can design something for your company at the trade show you attend every year.
