Stop the madness!

Thursday, Sep, 5 2013

There it is.
The next big thing....and just in time for Christmas. Imagine that.

We're sheep in this country.

We want, no, gotta have, the latest, greatest coolest thing to show off to our friends. You're only as hip as your tech gadgets, right?

"Like, God, she's still using like, like a laptop thingy. GAWD. OMG!"

We're tech crazy, even when we don't really need it. And we're lazy.

So that's why I guess this newfangled "SmartWatch" will be a hit.

Who wants to fumble around looking for a cell phone when a text, email, notification, or heaven forbid even an actual PHONE CALL comes in? Now all you'll have to do is look at your watch.

Heck, you can even surf the net there. I would suggest you get your eyes checked first though. Good luck reading all that info on a screen that's less than two inches.

Stop the madness I say.

Remembering passwords

Wednesday, Sep, 4 2013

How many passwords do you have?
Oh yeah, user I-D's too.

Lets be honest, it's a pain to try and remember all those passwords and user I-D's.

Write 'em down in an effort to remember? Well that kinda ruins the whole idea of passwords now doesn't it?

But coming up on the PhilCast today, the future of this dilemma I believe. New technology that could soon change the way we have to remember this stuff to get in and out of all the places they make us now go on-line.

Beer Sandwich?

Tuesday, Sep, 3 2013

Yup.
How about a beer sandwich?

I'll explain in a couple of stories about odd new foods coming out.

A beer spread is one of them. The other is a deep-fried soup.

That, plus "HowzYer Weekend?" stories after the long Labor Day Weekend....on the Tuesday, back-to-school PhilCast.

Labor Day Weekend already...

Thursday, Aug, 29 2013

For me personally, it has sort of been the lost summer. Still, it has flown by fast. Welcome to Labor Day Weekend already.

Thursday--The PhilCast goes until 5:00 and then it's Packers' pre-game.
Friday--"PhilCast Classic Clips", as both Reggie and I have the day off. Bob Salm will be spinning the hits. I may be listening from PhilCast SW, so don't screw it up 'Salami'!
Monday--Labor Day. No PhilCast
Tuesday--I'm back to live PhilCasting in September....the kids are back in school....and I'm counting down to the end of Sept. when my wife "Mrs. Biggest Name" finally leaves her job in Waukesha County and joins me here in the Fox Valley to begin her job hunt.

Anybody know of a place that needs a payroll specialist as of October?!

Happy Labor Day Weekend.

Twerking

Wednesday, Aug, 28 2013

Suddenly it seems, thanks to some snot-nosed little attention monger named Miley, the country seems obsessed with 'twerking' (Google it...I'm not going to waste my time)

A) I don't care
B) I really don't care
C) That is all
