When I hear stories like a 104 year old Twitter user (Ivy Bean), I wonder if it’s our own reservations that keep us older folks from diving into the latest and greatest tech. Children are less likely to allow the intimidation of new technology get in the way of using it.
The release of a Blu-ray 25th anniversary edition of the film last week is like welcoming an old friend back in shiny, new HD duds. As soon as the movie starts up again, I’m instantly transported to the first time I saw this classic as a kid in the theaters, and it is wonderful!
Tonight’s the night. The first Dancing with the Stars results show of the season. Geeks everywhere are holding their breath to see if Steve Wozniak and dance partner Karina Smirnoff will be the first couple sent home.
It’s been a tough competition for the Woz, the geek celebrity who’s been working his way through dance training despite suffering a fractured foot and some rather harsh comments from the show’s judges on his performances.
Yet, Woz’s enthusiasm has remained high. Heck, he has managed to get an offer to walk fellow Dancing star Maksim Chmerkovskiy down the isle (according to CNET).
Now we’re not counting Woz out, but are giving him credit for turning lemons into lemonade. That’s why we started our Twitter account, GeeksforWoz. We feel it’s our duty to help him through the competition. Hopefully even to victory.
I can’t wait. Only eight hours to go.
It can be a frustrating work day in this fast-paced, always-on, Internet-ready world when a key piece of technology fails. Especially when that technology is your email server. But imagine how much more stressful it is when your email address ends in “whitehouse.gov”.
According to the CNET, the incoming team at the White House found their usual high-tech work habits halted due to an email server outage that lasted almost 24 hours. Uh oh.
