Goodbye HTC – Hello Samsung!

Goodbye HTC – Hello Samsung!

Well I’ve kicked HTC to the curb after owning one of their smart phones for nearly 2 years. Before I got my HTC Thunderbolt I was desperate for it because it was not the iPhone and was being touted as the best Android at the time; it wasn’t. I still love my Thunderbolt but it’s a love that someone has only after mastering its failures and beating the device at its own game. I beat its terrible battery life, I beat Verizon’s lack of...

The Future of Sniping can be Found in Texas

While attending an event at SXSW I was able to see quite a few developments in the area of technology. What I expected to see were things like the xi3 modular computer that is roughly the size of a Coke can but what I wasn’t expecting to see was something that I had just read about in Gun World magazine. TrackingPoint had a very busy booth at this event and it was easy to see why – they had guns and what looked like a video game...

I Need Your Help: Galaxy Note 2 or HTC DNA?

My contract with Verizon is about to allow for an upgrade and while I’ve thought about dropping them it’s just not going to happen so I’m hunting down a new phone. As some of you know I’m the proud owner of an HTC Thunderbolt – a phone that Verizon and HTC proclaimed was their flagship and then threw it under the bus and never looked back. The phone is useable stock but the battery life is hilariously terrible and the constant lies...

Knife Wielding Man Tasered Outside Buckingham Palace

London – A knife wielding maniac was tasered outside Buckingham Palace after interrupting the changing of the guard ceremony with a 6 inch knife. The unidentified man broke through a police cordon on Sunday and slashed at officers before holding the knife to his throat. Police deployed Tasers and the man was quickly subdued but the video is quite dramatic. You can see one officer deploy his Taser but it appears to not affect the...

Ben Shapiro takes on Piers Morgan

I’ll be the first to say that I’m not a fan of Ben Shapiro or most of his thoughts on the path America should be on but I caught his interview with Piers Morgan that centered completely on guns and gun control and I enjoyed what I saw. Piers Morgan has had multiple figureheads on to talk about guns including Alex Jones and all of them have left a bad taste in gun owners’ mouths until this one. Ben Shapiro had no problem laying out his...

I Love Windows 8

I’m pretty sure that I’m in the minority when I make the above statement but I am likely one of the few who has had ample opportunity to explore Windows 8 on a new computer. I’ve seen a load of articles that have done nothing but criticize Windows 8 but nearly all of the sites writing those articles are so pro-Apple it’s almost hard to bear and as a result of those articles I quickly dismissed Windows 8 as a...

Jaguar kills prey in Brazil

This is probably one of the coolest things I have seen on YouTube in a long while. It’s amazing to see how animals act in the wild and it’s even more amazing that this was caught on video.

3-D Printed Gun Doesn’t Last Long

Most printers just spit out sheets of paper that hold text and pictures from your email but some printers can actually spit out guns, well almost. I can already see the ATF scrambling to come up with some sort of software that doesn’t allow anyone without a FFL (Federal Firearms License) to use these printers to print weapons or weapon parts but for now you can use a 3-D printer to make firearms although that is still illegal...

App Review: PressReader

Have you ever looked at your newspaper and wished that you could get it just the way it is on your tablet but without the cumbersome paper? If you’ve mumbled that statement under your breath while struggling with your big bulky newspaper then you’ve no doubt tried your local papers’ app and I’ll bet that it just wasn’t up to snuff. I personally have tried a few newspaper apps and they were more hassle...

Think Your Email is Safe? Think Again

If you think your email account is safe from intrusions or even from the law then you need to pay a little more attention to what happened to retired General and former head of the CIA – David Petraeus. A single Gmail account ended the brief tenure as Director of the Central Intelligence Agency for David Petraeus. While the potential national security violations continue to be reviewed by Congress and other branches of...
