gadgets: Meat packing made easy!

WaPo wants a piece of the app action!

I just got e-mail from the Washington Post about their new iPhone application, City Guide. We are continuing to explore opportunities to translate features on washingtonpost.com for mobile audiences and the City Guide application was a natural fit. With this...

the world is not such an awesome place

One of the issues lately that really makes my blood boil is Photographers’ Rights. The idea that taking a photograph makes someone a terrorist is just stupid. And giving someone (usually a rent-a-cop) the arbitrary power to question and/or detain...
