Good Bye 8-Track, Hello Blu-Ray

| No Comments
I still love and have access to my father's 8-Track collection (my personal favorite, "Little Anthony & the Imperials"), but I was the first of my buddies to switch to cassette tape.  And I liked the Beta, but the first video player that I played was VHS.  Honestly, I didn't pay much attention to the HD-DVD vs. Blu-Ray DVD battle.  Sony's Blu-Ray has won. This is great for PlayStation 3 owners.  So don't throw out all of your HD-DVDs just yet, they may be worth a few bucks on E-Bay down the road.
 
Check out some interesting background and stories on this shift to Blu-Ray:

Turn on the Lights, Brother!!!

Since February is Black History Month, I am highlighting Black Folk who have and who continue to breakdown barriers in the technology field.

So have you ever heard of Lewis H. Latimer?  "He is considered one of the 10 most important Black inventors of all time."  He invented the technology that allowed light bulbs to last longer. You have him to thank for lights in your house and on your street.

Also please read this written tribute about Mr. Latimer and a call for more support for minority entrepreneurs by U.S. Senator John Kerry of Massachusetts.

Happy President's Day!!!

This is not my political site (i.e. PoliticalJones.com), but this article was much too funny not to post.

From the New York Times:
"Is Obama a Mac and Clinton a PC?

So are you a Mac or a PC?

"WI-Fi World"

| No Comments
Do you remember dial up internet service?   The sound and the speed?  I was always told that the one thing you can count on in this world is change and innovation.  Folks are always looking for new ways to make the wheel turn faster and safer.  We are living in a Wi-Fi world now.  Clearly if you stand still you will fall behind.
AT&T and Starbucks are taking our growing use of Wi-Fi to the next level.
