Apple Watch: 2016 Predictions
Friday, 2016 January 1 - 12:46 pm
Ah, the old blog. I guess you can't really rely on me to post consistently about much these days, but I'll at least come around once a year to write my Apple predictions. This is more for me than for anyone else... kind of a mental exercise.

Thoughts on the iPad Pro
Friday, 2015 September 18 - 3:27 pm
So, one of my predictions about the Apple Event last week was way off. Apple did indeed announce a bigger, heavier 13" iPad Pro, complete with an optional keyboard and an optional fancy stylus (the Apple Pencil). There are multiple reasons why Apple may have come out with this device.

FOOTBAWW. Yes, I'm back at it. Hope has returned to Michigan with the arrival of Jim Harbaugh as head coach. He's proven nothing yet, but it's hard to imagine it could be worse than the debacle of the last couple of years.

Hey Everybody
Saturday, 2015 August 22 - 11:04 am
I guess the site's been down for a couple of days due to changes from my web host. I'm here so rarely that I didn't even notice.

So, what's new? Well, there'll be some interesting Apple news coming up, and I'm getting geared up to resume reporting on college football. This season is hopeful for both Michigan and NCSU, so maybe it'll be more cheerful than years past.

Anyway, who knows if anyone still even reads this stuff any more, but if you do, sorry for the inconvenience. Regular posting will resume shortly.

2014 Elections: The Aftermath
Wednesday, 2014 November 5 - 12:13 pm
Well, it's pretty much over: Republicans have retaken the Senate. Alaska is still counting but will probably go to Sullivan (R) over Begich (D). Louisiana will go to a runoff in December that favors the Republican. It looks like Warner (D) will squeak by in Virginia over Gillespie (R); this after he was projected to win by something like 9%. So in the end, it looks like a 54-46 majority for the Republicans.

College Football 2014: The End
Sunday, 2014 September 28 - 12:36 pm
Back in 2008, I stopped blogging about football midway through the season. Michigan was in Rich Rodriguez's first year, glumly looking at a 2-6 record, and struggling with a couple of earnest but untalented quarterbacks. To some degree the struggles were understandable: there was a major schematic shift in the offense, and the quarterback cupboard was left bare after Ryan Mallett transferred. Michigan limped to a 3-9 record that year, and I thought it was the nadir of Michigan football.

New CBS Show Scorpion Riddled with Errors
Tuesday, 2014 September 23 - 1:12 pm
I could swear I saw promotional materials for CBS's new tech-y series "Scorpion" promising that the show would feature technically accurate hacking techniques based on real-life stories.

That went out the window in the show's first few minutes. If you plan on watching the show and you don't want spoilers, then stop reading here. But trust me, you probably don't want to watch this show... so read on for just a couple dozen of the hundreds of plot holes and implausible elements to this show.
