Omron HBF-306C Fat Loss Monitor Review

Way back when I used to live in Virginia, something magical would happen about once a month. I’d take off almost all of my clothes in front of another guy and he’d pinch me gently all over my body. Meaning, my friend and personal trainer Yoda would use calipers to measure my body fat. I […]

PlayStation 4 Initial Impressions

PlayStation 4 Initial Impressions

My Sony PlayStation 4 console arrived on launch day. I’d pre-ordered the PS4 console and the game WatchDogs from Amazon in October.

Cards Against Humanity’s “Holiday Bullshit” Sells Out in Less Than 4 Hours

I got an email today from the folks who make the excellent game Cards Against Humanity. Last year at around this time they sold a holiday expansion pack, which I purchased before I even got the retail version of the base game and the expansions. At 12:40 I got the email. I was in the […]

Setting Up My Nexus 5 on AIO Wireless

Last week I received my Nexus 5 Android smartphone. I was excited to get it, but there was one problem: the Nexus 5 isn’t compatible with Verizon.
