13 Hours shows how much we don’t understand about each other.

What happened was tragic.

Tonight my roommates and I watched 13 Hours, the movie that depicts what happened in Benghazi. The film is really well made and I almost didn’t have enough time to write this post because I was too busy watching it. What happened was tragic. It really puts in perspective how lucky we are to live in a stable country and how tumultuous the politics are in the Middle East.

Vivino – The best choice for a Wine App.

Earlier today a friend of mine invited me to join Vivino, a wine app. From first use I understood it, liked it, and would use it again. The apps easy to use UI is really what gets me excited. A simple, almost Twitter like, feed on the front page and only four options of what to do. You can browse this feed and see wines the people you follow have ranked, you can check what wines you’ve already ranked, check out recommendations and wines across all of Vivino’s platform, and (the best part) get locations for places that have wine near you.

Samsung’s Galaxy S4 is simply the worst.

I made the switch from all Apple products at the beginning of this year, and switched from the iPhone 4s to the Galaxy S4.  At first I was overly excited.  I love the Android Operating system, and do believe it is the future of mobile.  Still in love with it, the problem the operating system has is the phones made for it (Google’s Nexus Line) are all middle of the road.  So in-order to be on the “cutting edge”  I decided to go with either the HTC One of the Galaxy S4.  One of my colleagues had just gotten an S4 around the time I purchased mine and I like the features, so I got one.

I had all my news and updates flashing before me, and a lot of which I want to read but am not able to at the moment. I like Evernote, but I stumbled upon Pocket (@Pocket) when browsing for article curators, and this is bar none the best.

Waze is the best mapping app ever.

Before we left for our entrepreneurial adventure to Dallas, Marikha (@marikhacabel) and I needed to find a new mapping application for me to use. I have an iPhone 4S, and at the time we were leaving Ann Arbor for Dallas the 2nd beta for iOS came out. When you used the mapping application it had a problem with overheating the phone and a problem crashing often, so I wanted something more reliable. We stumbled upon Waze (@Waze) who had recently been bought by Google for 1.1 billion dollars, so we were interested. We downloaded the app and hit the road and saw an immediate difference in the beauty of Waze over any other mapping system.
