A real mixed offering of writing today, with a little bit of everything from the stupidity of “free” Facebook offers to using VPNs for more than just corporate security.
Slowly.. very slowly… my photography is improving. Which means that every once in a while, I get to play with
very cool gadgets.
I got told the other day that my job must be easy. I think the following articles dispell that… at least a little.
I write a lot most of the time. Then there are the weeks where I write so much, if I didn’t know I was me, I’d accuse myself of being a small army of Bolivian Word Midgets. This is clearly one of them.
Acer Aspire 5560G, Acer Revo 100, BlackBerry, CNET Australia, Fujitsu Stylistic Q550, Geekspeak, Gizmodo, HP, LogMeIn, Macbook Air, Nintendo, Optus, PC & Tech Authority, RIM, Samsung, Seagate, SSD, Top Gear, TouchPad, WALL-E

I ponder the utility of Google+ and make a badly dated MC Hammer joke. Because I’m sure it must be hip to be retro, right? No? Oh well, it’s my blog anyway. It could have been worse. It could have been yet another Vanilla Ice joke.

My odyssey into Android vs iOS continues, and I look at the pros and cons of different home networking options.
Things that shine seem to prevail today.
Over at Geekspeak, a quick primer on the state of Google’s Chromebooks:
Google’s Chromebooks: Shiny, Or About As Useful As Tailfins? “Is there space for yet another operating system in the marketplace besides Windows, Mac OS X and the many flavours of Linux?”
And then at 30 Seconds Of Tech, a video covering a product that sounds like digestive biscuit and (if the video is any indication) is prone to attack from other, larger streaming devices:
Over at Geekspeak, my weekly column has looked at the mobile office concept through the prism of the smartphone. By way of that brother of mine — the one I’m frequently mistaken for. I don’t know why — his hair looks totally different to mine.
Is the mobile office a reality right now? “The concept of carrying a single, small device to do all your on-the-go work is becoming more and more realistic…”
Meanwhile, at CNET.com.au, I’ve written up yet another Microsoft mouse:
