We just got the LaCie itsaKeys in at work the other day and I just had to buy one. There's just something cool about carrying a flash drive with me at all time.

Swift is just too misogynistic and arrogant that I just had to write a response to his poem.October 23, 2007A… Continue reading From the Archives
I am so caught up in school work and work in general that I realized that I never found the time to blog about a milestone in my life. Anne and I had our two year anniversary on the 28th of February. This marks the longest relationship that I have been in my life and… Continue reading Belated Milestone
From the moment I sat down in the theater and overheard a girl asking her friend, "I heard Watchmen about retired superheroes like The Incredibles," I knew that reviews for this movie would be severely polarized.

Yahoo announced on Friday that it would be shutting down it's DRM servers so that customers that bought PlaysForSure (the most ironic name, ever) DRMed music would be out of luck.

After debating whether or not to buy the iPod Touch 2.0 firmware for $10, I gave in and purchased the firmware (which should be free but that's for another post). I was excited to see all the cool new (and finalized) apps that I could use. I had jailbroken my iPod and had a bunch… Continue reading I Paid $10 to Break My iPod Touch

A judge has ruled to allow Viacom to access YouTube's information about what user names and their IP addresses has view and uploaded what videos. This is a very scary thought. They will now have access to millions of people's private information because a few people uploaded illegal clips of their shows. This is another… Continue reading YouTube Privacy = Nonexistent
Editor's note: The previous quarter was tough. It was the first quarter in which I took classes that actually required me to do reporting. I had to interview several people multiple times and on my own time. My instructors gave me limited help with my writing and no help with finding subjects. I stretched my… Continue reading Hope in the worst possible time to try and become a journalist
