Just a quick question and challenge for you guys – Are you pushing yourself to learn? I have felt kinda blah these last few month in terms of my motivation and creativity as a designer and developer. I think this was because I wasn’t pushing myself to learn new things. So I just recently decided to learn how to build sites in ExpresisonEngine and give myself a geek-ee challenge. It’s been frustrating and fun at the same time but I can say for the first time in a while I’m actually EXCITED about learning something and im actually doing something! (instead of putting things off).

So I’d like to challenge you guys to push yourself and learn new things! Leave a comment and let me know what you are challenging yourself with!

Apple iPad

Yesterday afternoon I tuned in with the thousands of fanbois and girls to listen to God, (I mean Steve Jobs) introduce Apples newest creation: The iPad.

Google Wave Invites

Hope everyone had a lovely thanksgiving! I finally had a chance to disconnect for a few days and relax. When I came back to internet land I noticed that I had 16 Google Wave invites in my inbox to give away.

I’d like to give away the invites to people I’ll actually talk to so if you think that you fit that bill leave a comment and i’ll pick you! :)

Droid has arrived

First, let me start off by saying that I love technology, and I think that the Android platform is pretty cool. I’m glad to see competition in the realm of reallyfreakingcoolcellphones, but the marketing of Verizon’s Droid struck a nerve with me.

As most of  you know i’m crazy about my iPhone.  I use it for work, business, blogging, communication, fun and many other things. I often have my phone sitting next to me while I work and prop it up against items on my desk so I can read my incoming alerts and messages.

I have been looking for an stand or cradle for a whle but wasnt impressed with anything I’ve seen so far. Most stands out there come at a premium price and I was just looking for something simple. Then I stumbled upon the GoGoStand.
