Autumn, my favorite time of year.  The crisp cool air, changing leaves, and the opportunity for awesome dates.  Spending the afternoon on the bank of a pond for a picnic or at a vineyard for a wine tasting or at a park to toss around a football or Frisbee are all great ways to pass […]


Google and Motorola Mobility, hereafter Motorola, sitting in a tree m-e-r-g-i-n-g. Yes, Google is set to acquire Motorola and I, for one, think it’s awesome.

If you are a single gentleman of means or a wife or girlfriend looking to give the gift for the guy who has everything can I suggest the Zafirro Iridium razor.  According to the official website the notable features include the following: Exclusivity – 99 numbered units will be produced at a price of $100,000 […]
