    Leaving DC in a couple of hours. I’ve been traveling since last Tuesday. First for work and then to visit Jackie’s parents. It’s going to be good to get a night in my own bed.

  • Punching more holes in the 'Apple Quality Myth'

    September 5, 2010 Jake DiMare

    The computer on the left is a Dell Latitude D800 I purchased in August of 2002. The busted one on the right is one of the last of the Apple iBooks. I bought it for my Mom in June of 2006, and then inherited it shortly thereafter. Want to guess which one cost more? The…

  • Greenland…

    August 11, 2010 Jake DiMare

    Recently, the thought occurred to me Greenland is soon to be a lot warmer than it has been traditionally. With only about 57,000 permanent residents and the fact it is a protectorate of one of the most liberal governments in the world…it might be a cool place to acquire land.  Unfortunately, the only way to…

After I left home I spent many years on the road and…

    June 5, 2010 Jake DiMare

    Just installed the WordPress app on my new phone and this is the first ‘mobile blog post’. Not too bad really, the typing on this phone is really fast and easy. The predictive system works quite well. The voice recognition works surprisingly good if I speak slow in a quiet room.

  • The good old days…

    April 29, 2010 Jake DiMare

    The weather’s been cold in Boston for a few weeks so I’ve been catching up on Seinfeld on cable. It’s weird moments like this when I realize how old I am. Seinfeld’s been off the air for more than ten years. They are still hilarious though…

  • Another Tablet Option…

    February 16, 2010 Jake DiMare

    The OpenTablet7 from OpenPeak has me thinking. What if my tablet also fills the role of a phone? I hadn’t really thought about this before but it interests me because I have terrible cell phone reception at home and I have been thinking about VoIP as an alternative. In addition to being free from the…
