  • Did you get fooled today? Lots of April Fools jokes out there, so make sure you read through the whole article before you buy into it.

  • When I go to most shows, I fly solo. CES and NAB are bigger, which means its a lot better when 2 people are there. But this year I decided to fly solo to the event. It will make things a bit tougher, especially if there is an inattentive patron that could possibly walk right into the camera rig. So I have to make […]

  • Walking the streets of Austin for SXSW does two things – it destroys your shoes and it tires you out. That is why I stopped into this building, which promoted rejuvination and relaxation through sleep. I ended up getting to know more about this area and the new FX TV show called “The Strain” (coming in July). In this video, I talk with Raimy […]

  • While at SXSW, I got to try the Sony Cybershot DSC QX10 camera. This is the camera that wirelessly connects to the smartphone and takes over the camera. The 18 megapixel camera can bring higher quality photos into your camera. The add-on lens is one of 2 in the Sony line (QX100 being the higher-end version). The advantages of this camera are you can […]
