Thanks for the comment Jer! I hoped to update the blog more often, but the good news is that I've been keeping pretty busy and haven't had much time for blogging. :) Hit me up on LinkedIn and let's see how we can work together.

LOL - thanks Yana. I don't think I had to worry about an awkward scratch here or there because I was out cold. But yes, there was an infrared camera on me. They didn't even try and hide it, it was right there in the top of the room looking down on me. It was weird at first, but I got used to it quickly.

Sadly, I never got the results of the sleep clinic because we moved to Florida.

He's right. Same with Hulu, Blockbuster, Fancast, and any other online video store.

BUT - found an Universal Remote for you, so that might compensate: http://www.ohgizmo.com/2010/03/23/newkinetix-re-u...

LOL - it's ok John. Fanboy or not, you're still cool in my book. ;)

I have an iphone and a slew of iPods. But I also have an iriver and a samsung mp3 player that I love. There's pros and cons to living in Apple's world, as we all know. ;)

I haven't had many dropped calls here in Florida. But in Vegas it was effin ridiculous. I couldn't even get a signal at most spots on the strip. The airport was marginally better. I didn't make it out south or to Henderson, but I hope for your sake AT&T is better in the neighborhoods. I had T-mobile when I lived there and had no complaints. Hope Vegas is one of the next major cities to get the upgrade like SF and NY were. It is badly in need of it, especially at conference time.

iPad: it will be interesting to see what they roll out with for added features in next generations. I know for a fact I won't be first adopter. But we'll see what they do in the future as software and processors advance. The other tablets on the market are very much what I'm looking for, as long as I don't have to use outlook (the gmail interface is awesome though!).

Actually, there is a home automation app for the iPhone. I imagine it will be available for the iPad too. Not a true remote, it still won't play your Xbox or Blu-ray player.

Ha, you're baiting me with posts about Apple products. Ok, I'll bite but I'm leaving the exact same comment as I did on Facebook. ;) I'm lazy like that...

"Am I just an Apple FanBoy who has to have the new shiny gadget?" Hmm... you have a Macbook Pro and an iPhone, and probably other iPods in your home. Add an iPad at the head and you become Fanboy Voltron! Just sayin. ;)

You provide valid points, especially about the camera, GPS, and movies, but you haven't compared to other devices on the market.

There's a multitude of tablets that run on Android, Jolicloud, or even Windows 7 tablet edition that are viable competitors and offer full browsers and plugins for those browsers (flash, silverlight). There's nothing an iPad can do that these can't. You can even have your iTunes library (music, videos, AND LPs) on the windows 7 devices. Even the iPad won't support Apples own LPs.

My biggest grief about the iphone OS is that of video support. Yeah yeah yeah, I heard all the comeback rhetoric about "but it will support HTML5 - that's a flash killer!"... problem is, it isn't. Flash is the standard. It's what people use. 75% of all video on the web is encoded in Flash. The fact the iphone/ipad doesn't support it is a huge deal to me. I avoid watching Youtube videos on my iphone because its painful.

Watch this video, it's enlightening: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-p-RZAwQq0E

Final thought: the HP Slate is cheaper than the iPad. And proposed Android and Windows tablets that will come to market at the end of the year will be even cheaper than the Slate."

I'd guess it's because she was justifying her screw-up of losing the papers in the first place. She felt better saying it, and perhaps thought you would feel better by hearing it too!

Ten years is quite the feat, John. Something to definitely be proud of. I'm glad I had the opportunity to work with you through 3 of those years!

I wish you much success with your new projects!

I have to say I agree with you James. We all remember what happened to Kobe, right? Not much. I'd think the more old-school traditional brands like Buick and Nike will be the first ones to respond with a reduced sponsorship (or drop Tiger completely). But I'm pretty sure his contract with EA Sports won't be going anywhere soon.
