Thoroughly Disappointing: Pebble is Shutting Down


Pebble has just announced that it is shutting down operations, having sold to Fitbit. I find this to be a thoroughly disappointing move, not because I was amongst the first to back Pebble on their original Kickstarter but because, yet again, a company with an amazing product, that set itself aside from the mainstream, has…

HP Pavilion 14-c001ea Chromebook


I’m into the Google eco system in a big way. Although a long term Apple fan, I have always enjoyed the Google eco system, making the final jump from iOS to Android early this year with the sale of my 4S and the subsequent purchase of the Nexus 4. I’m so glad I jumped ship….
