Cyberhand Touches and Feels

I put my order in today for a new Cyberhand to replace this 30-year-old model I’m using. Talk about out-dated! The new hand is controlled via an internal wireless receiver/transmitter (Telemetric Link). It includes Force Feedback (efferent and afferent response), which is a huge boon to amputees, I’m sure.

Harry Potter and The Goblet of Fire

**MINOR SPOILER COMING** We saw Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire this weekend over the holiday. It’s the first movie we’ve seen in quite some time. I’m glad we did, too. It was really an enjoyable movie and certainly grown up from the original. The movies, like the books,…Continue Reading

The Apprentice: Trump vs. Vader

Broken Promises

Promise Technology, Inc. has proven to have some of the worst technical support in the world. It’s widely accepted that Promise’s ATA RAID controllers are among the best, but what good is a great controller if there’s no one to back it up in case of failure? My onboard RAID…Continue Reading
