LEGO Ron Burgundy

A friendly reminder, don’t steal photos. When my son handed me a LEGO man to play an alien spaceship abduction, I looked down into my hand and into the eyes of LEGO Ron Burgundy. Son: “Who is Ron Burgundy?” Me: “The newsman Will Ferrell plays in the movie Anchorman. If we had a desk, I […]

Macro Cell Lens for iPhone

Last time I was on PhotoJoJo they had three items for sale. Now they have three billion phoneography gadgets. I was going to buy the three pack lens set until I saw the $15 rubber band macro lens. The Macro Cell Lens works on a Blackberry or Droid as well, as PhotoJoJo claims it works with any mobile […]

Shrimp, Roaches and Diatomaceous Earth

If you have a weak stomach then read no further.  If you ever thought you had a stomach bug then it might have been worms. I read that roughly 80% of Americans have intestinal parasites.

Watermarking Photos for Instagram

  After the TwitPic photo Terms of Service controversy (see photo copyright update below), I began noticing Instagram users were posting other user’s photos as their own.  To help mitigate unavoidable theft of my content, I began watermarking photos.  Especially after reading a parent’s photo of their child ended up on a billboard in another country.  Kind […]

iPhone FileApp Great for Traveling Writers

I was without Internet this summer in Las Vegas which meant not much writing.  Unless Twitter microblogging counts.  My writing managed to stay alive using the iPhone WordPress App but writing on an iPhone is about as microblogging as it gets.  I managed to write a great post but it took a while.  My genius […]
