My Star Wars theory on Rey’s parents

Rey

It seems like every Star Wars fan has his or her own theory on any number of thing from The Force Awakens. I had not really given a lot of thought to possibilities of Rey’s parents…at least not until recently. I had hoped that she, like Ezra Bridger from Star Wars Rebels, would develop force […]

Top 5 Snoke Theories from Star Wars: The Force Awakens

Snoke

Star Wars: The Force Awakens opened a year ago and people have had plenty of time to form theories as to who “Supreme Leader Snoke” is and how he ties into the Star Wars universe. Snoke only appears in Starkiller Base as a hologram, so there’s no way to know for sure how large he […]

You shouldn’t use Google Play Music for Podcasts…unless you’re a podcaster

Google Play Music Podcasts

In April 2016, Google Play Music added the ability to play podcasts through its Android app. “Finally,” everyone said, “Google has their own podcast feature like Apple added to iTunes ten years ago!” …and so, all was right with the world.  Well, not really, because Google really screwed it up. First off, they only support […]

I’ve lived in California for almost four years now and have come to realize that Californians can’t build good homes. There are three main reasons that have helped me come to this conclusion: Heating In my house, we have no air conditioning.  (There’s only a couple weeks when we really need it anyway.)  We have […]

Stand up for What You Believe In

I’m seeing a lot of Trump supporters (I was going to say “Republicans”, but realize that’s not necessarily true) saying, “Your candidate lost! Get over yourselves!” NO. I will not simply roll over. I will fight for the values that I believe in and what I feel is right. I hope that people in congress […]

Pink Fraud

Two weeks ago, I went on a nice long vacation with my wife.  While walking back to our hotel from a restaurant, I saw a QR code with a Lyft ad taped to a post.  I scanned the QR code and got credits for Lyft.  I think it was $50 in credit…or maybe it was […]

U.S.S. Voyager

21 years ago, Star Trek: Voyager had just hit the airwaves. I made some predictions about the show and posted them to Usenet… Here are my predictions for Voyager that will probably happen at some point. 1) The most obvious plot is that Voyager finds a way home but for some stupid reason that will be argued […]

Monster’s problem was putting sales before tech

A while back, Huffington Post published an interesting article on Monster.com, my former employer.  While I agree with most of the article, I think it’s only partly right. “It wasn’t a technology failure; it was a leadership failure.”  Actually, it was both.  The leadership failure caused the technology failure.  Sal and other Monster leadership focused […]
