Simple, Hotel Tonight, & Uber: 3 Services I Love Using (& You Will Too)

Posted on in Apps iPhone Lifestyle Reviews Web

Simple, Uber, and HotelTonight are 3 of my favorite companies (and apps) that are clearly ahead of their time. I believe that each one is a perfect example of “how everything will be done” in our hyper-connected future. I’m excited for the day when everything will work as smoothly and friction-free as the experiences I’ve

WP Engine WordPress Hosting Review

Posted on in Reviews

WP Engine is serious hosting. In fact, I usually don’t recommend them to anyone who’s just blogging for fun or isn’t running some sort of business online. Dreamhost and Hostgator are actually a lot cheaper and are pretty solid choices when it comes to more “hobby” cases. Where WP Engine does shine though – is for medium to

Wow, what a letdown. All around. Last year I got really excited about Spnkix (which is awkward to spell – they should have called them Spin Kicks or Spin Kix or something. Though I guess it’s still better than Spnzkixzzz). Someone on Twitter posted about the Spnkix Kickstarter project and I thought “hey, this is

Adobe Creative Cloud Upgrade – Is it Worth It?

Posted on in Reviews

Updated May 9th, 2013 – my edits are in italics. Adobe recently changed its pricing structure to only have subscription-options going forward. Also, my one year $30/month deal expired so now I’m paying $50/month.I think the first version of Photoshop I ever used was Photoshop 5 or 6. Since then I’ve upgraded to every major

Tablet Hotels has one of the best collections of luxury and hip/modern hotels around the world. They also offer a $195 per year Tablet Plus membership.

Founders Card Membership Review

Posted on in Reviews

Last Spring after I got back from the Summit at Sea I got an invite to sign up for a Founders Card membership. Since I was doing a lot of traveling at the time, I thought it might come in handy, especially since a few of the perks seemed right up my alley. Founders Card

Sony NEX-5N Camera Review – a DSLR Replacement?

Posted on in Reviews

Several years ago I shot almost exclusively with the Canon 5D mark II and fell in love with the photos it produced, especially in low light. Over time, however, it just got too bulky to travel with. I got tired of lugging the thing around. Last year I looked around to see if I can

OWC 480 GB SSD Hard Drive for Macbook Air

Posted on in Reviews

I’m completely obsessed with my Macbook Air 11″. It is a thing of beauty – a machine to kick every other laptop’s ass – by a longshot. I remember hauling my first laptop – a Dell, and how big and bulky that thing was. I feel in love with my Macbook Air 11″ during my
