Why Apple, Google Bested Coca-Cola as Top Global Brand

Was proud of iPad365 – not only on “New and Noteworthy”, but also on “What’s Hot” in Technology. I broke down and joined Empire Avenue. My stock jumped to $58.51 in the first two days. Does that mean I’m rich?  Spent the weekend relaxing – on Sunday we did Tandem Kayaking on Lake Monona. Not an easy task at times. Last night’s TWIGG we talked on XE10 and the upcoming GDK for Google Glass. I also tried Google Hangouts with Q&A. While I liked how it worked, in the end the quality wasn’t there. Not sure if the problem wasn’t...

5 Tech Things: Meteors, Microsoft KIN, Twitter Pay Model

This week on the 5 Tech Things You Should Know: A Big Meteor came across the Midwest sky.

Blogworld New Media Expo 2009 Day 1

The day was long, but well worth it. I got on a plane about 5:10 this morning. The flight would take me to Chicago, where I would have to wait until 8:11 to continue on. However, problems kept us in Chicago a little longer. The plane had some technical glitch that could be fixed by unplugging (something), then taking one from another plane. They kept saying it would only take a couple minutes. …Two hours later… We finally got underway after 10 AM. With a 2 hour time shift, that brought the plane in at about 11:45 AM. Got to...

Ramblings – 5-03-08

I’ve been looking at the site and noticed that for a semi-bloggish atmosphere, I have no Blog stuff on here. Mostly News and Podcasts. So I decided to practice the art of self-humility and talk about the things happening in life for the past week. I call it “Ramblings”. Live show was awesome. I am not just saying that to promote, it really was. Although we didn’t get to 20 people, the ones that were there were interactive and fun. This week I upped it to 25 people. If 25 are watching and chatting, then I’ll be giving away a...

Focus#5 CompUSA closes, Apple Store thrives.

After a few years of turbulent times, CompUSA will finally be closing their remaining 103 stores. In the meantime, Apples’ Surge allows them to open a 3rd store in New York – which pushes them to 201 stores. So with all this, is it “Out with the Old, in with the Apple”?   The Computer and Electronics retail store known as CompUSA opened it’s doors to the public in 1985 (the company started in 84, but was only a wholesale distributor. It was also not called CompUSA until 1991.). By 1996 it was making it’s presence known by launching CompUSA.com. In its existence, the chain...
