Zune 3.0 Coming

Mmmm…Zune 3.0. I’ve just read Jason Dunn’s (of ThoughtMedia.com) report on a recent Microsoft meeting discussing the Zune 3.0 release. I am completely sold on the Zune platform and am greatly encouraged by the up-and-coming release. Perhaps the greatest boon of them all is that the Zune team will be…Continue Reading

Twitter Updates for 2008-08-20

My ping pong game was good today, but I hear the Olympic players are legendary! # I want a hydration pack that holds 1.5L or less and has a water-resistant/proof MP3 pocket w/headphone port. Ideas? # @HamWithCam Don’t hit the silver lining – some of us are banking on that!…Continue Reading

Hide and Seek

Sometimes a new song is played and you instantly fall in love with it.  It could be that it’s a great emotional swelling in your body, or just something so groovy that you can’t keep still while you listen.  Other times, it might be a contextual reference that gives the…Continue Reading

Zune 2.x

You may recall that I had written up the Zune Wish List a couple of months after I received mine in December of 2006. I took the time to assess my needs and what the Zune hardware and software could do to meet those needs. It has now been nearly…Continue Reading

We recently attended the Gypsy Mediterranean Arabic Balkan Dilos Musicians of Atlanta meetup.com event. It was a complete blast!

Today, I see that the device is available for a mere $104.99 including shipping. There is absolutely no reason…Continue Reading

Reading into some of the reviews will give you more hope that MP3fiesta is what we were looking for after the fall of AoM. However, upon a true…Continue Reading

DiY PC: Antec Nine Hundred (Case)

I’m in the process of building out a new custom PC for the house – the first one in quite a while now. Contrary to what you might think, as a technology guy I’m usually a little late for getting things up-to-date around the house. As such, I’m replacing an…Continue Reading

Philips DVP5960

I just bought a new DVD player to replace our perfectly working existing version. But this one is so much cooler! It has a USB port on the front, which most people gloss over at the mere mention of interrelations between household electronics and computer technology. However, I see the…Continue Reading

Zune Wish List

I couldn’t find a place to send my Zune wish list, so hopefully the Microsoft product managers are reading my blog… Zune Hardware: Alphabet ToC Navigation in addition to click-wheel Ratings categories (so I can play 4-star or 5-star music only, for instance) The ability to remove songs from my…Continue Reading
