Friends Don’t Let Friends Read Forbes for Tech News

Friends Don’t Let Friends Read Forbes for Tech News

It’s a saying that I’ve been using for months: friends don’t let friends read Forbes for tech news. You’ve probably heard the story. The terrorists in Paris used Sony’s PS4 to communicate and plan the attack! Well, no. That was the story you read over the weekend. Starting on Monday, you started reading stories about how that’s simply not true. I’m not here to talk about how the Paris attackers communicated or how it’s untrue…

Why I Think Microsoft Killed Project Astoria

Why I Think Microsoft Killed Project Astoria

It’s the normal news cycle. On Friday, we found out that Microsoft might be killing the Project Astoria bridge. On Monday, everyone writes about why they think it happened. I felt like I should throw my hat into the ring, as I have a theory that no one seems to be voicing. First, a little backstory. Microsoft announced four “bridges” to help close the so-called “app gap” and bring more apps to the Universal Windows…

Microsoft Could Invade your Privacy with Windows 10

Microsoft Could Invade your Privacy with Windows 10

Before you read on and leave me angry comments, note the title. I didn’t say Microsoft is invading your privacy with Windows 10. I said that they could. Ever since July 29 when Windows 10 was released, I’ve been hearing about the privacy concerns over and over. The Linux fanboys never stop. They always show up with some article from Forbes to show that yes, Windows 10 invades users’ privacy. First off, trying to prove…

Seriously HTC? WTF?

Seriously HTC? WTF?

The world of smart phones around us is rapidly changing. You might not see it, but it really is. It was only three years ago that Phonebloks was first heard of. Everyone was super excited at the concept of a modular smart phone. Why? Because all of the phones at the time left something to be desired, whether it be the display or the camera or the processor or the battery life. There was just…

Can Microsoft Really “Wow” Us Today?

Can Microsoft Really “Wow” Us Today?

It’s 13 minutes before the big Microsoft event and I’m hammering away at my keyboard because I have something I want to say. We haven’t seen a flagship Windows Phone since June, 2014. We haven’t seen a flagship Surface since May of that same year. With the outcry for Windows devices for enthusiasts, it’s no secret that Microsoft really can’t leave anything on the table today. Paul Thurrott wrote an article called “This is Microsoft’s…

Doctor Who s09e02: The Witch’s Familiar Review

Doctor Who s09e02: The Witch’s Familiar Review

I really love The Master’s new character, Missy. She’s the perfect character that you love to hate. When I reviewed s09e01 last week, I said it reminded me of season six, which had a very compelling seasonal plot, starting off with two very compelling episodes that leads into the finale. That doesn’t seem to be the case anymore, since nothing was really left unresolved in s09e02. The Witch’s Familiar starts off with Missy and Clara…

How For the Love of Tech Got its Name

How For the Love of Tech Got its Name

I hate the name of my web site. I really do. It’s too long. I tell people that I’m a blogger and sure enough, they ask me the name of my web site. I tell them it’s “For the Love of Tech”, which is followed up by a series of “What?” and me promptly reaching into my pocket to just give them a business card. I started For the Love of Tech, now often shortened…

AT&T Next: A Contract by any Other Name

AT&T Next: A Contract by any Other Name

There are loads of benefits to being a blogger with a medium sized audience. I’m not so small that I’m making stuff up to get page views. I’m not so big that I have to kiss the asses of advertisers. The thing I love the most about having an audience is that when I have a bad customer experience, I get to tell the world. It’s not just me taking out my frustrations on that…

Doctor Who s09e01: The Magician’s Apprentice

I’ve never reviewed a TV show before; however, the tech world and the sci-fi/fantasy/comic book worlds are becoming more and more intertwined. You’ll see a review like this on The Verge, right? And hey, it’s my web site and I can write whatever the hell I want. Plus, I fucking love Doctor Who and I want to talk about it. Also, I may as well point out, spoiler alert. Not only does this article provide…

Developer Pulls Peace from the iOS App Store

Developer Pulls Peace from the iOS App Store

We’ve been hearing more and more about ad blockers, their rise in usage, and the increasing effect that they’ve had on content creators. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. If you’re reading a really good article on your favorite web site, and you want that web site to die forever, use an ad blocker. I even threw my own two cents in with Another Argument Against Ad Blockers. The fact is that…
