Over the past few months I have written a few articles about the HP Stream 7 (Stream-lining-A review of my new companion device, A Tale of Two Tablets).  So when I got this e-mail today from eBay I thought I would share it with you… in case you are interested in a 7” tablet that … Continue reading Deal on the Stream 7!

How Surface changed my thinking… and helped my shoulder

I travel heavy.  When going through airport security it is not uncommon for me to pull three or four laptops out of two laptop bags.  In addition to that I will have external hard drives, a plethora of cables, and all sorts of other junk.  It has resulted in very strong – albeit often aching … Continue reading How Surface changed my thinking… and helped my shoulder
