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.
Your virtual liaisons.

Everyone has been buzzing about Facebook’s great accomplishment, today marks it’s ten year anniversary! You can check out their “Look Back” feature as a celebratory creep on your life over the past ten years. The feature goes through a highlight of all your events on Facebook since you created it. This can be fun, exciting, scary, depressing, and every emotion in-between; all dependent on how you’ve acted over the years.
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.
This piece is entirely satirical.
Last week, I upgraded from my historically reliable 2008 Macbook that was on it’s death bed and to the surprise of myself and all of my friends I decided to switch from Mac to PC. I fell in love with Windows operating system after playing with my friends Surface a while back. However, I wanted to use a Sony product, so I decided to get a Sony Vaio Duo. I want to focus more on my experience in the switch to the operating system rather than the actual product I got, but I have to say, this is a stellar machine.
Stand in an open field and notice the dim lit night sky,
You’re all alone with the corn brushing your back,
The moon is out tonight, full with all it’s might.
What are you thinking about?
Who are you thinking about?
Look up again, tomorrow is upon us.
Dear sweet time, where have you gone?
These days, months, and years don’t add up,
At least not how I want them to,
Yet here I sit in awe of your humble shadow,
Ever creeping – slowly taking the soul each night.
Yet here I am to hear you tick away.
Swallowed by the mundane days and unwanted voices,
Wasted by unconscious thoughts and untrustworthy events,
Playing tricks on those who created you,
Through an act they can’t help but give their faith,
Sleep well little angel, time will pass morning will come.

When I got my new Samsung Galaxy S4 I quickly realized it’s potential in new curation. 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.
