The new Samsung QN800A is a masterpiece of technology and really brings the concept of a TV to a whole new level.

Starting with the design, this tv is slender with only a 0.7" width it is the first truly flat tv monitor I’ve ever seen. There is barely a…

The new year brings New Years Resolutions and usually a bunch of change. At least it’s usually a good excuse to try something new and create that “new you” compared to the previous year. I’m sure most of this comes from a couple of months at the end of the…


As I usher out 2018 and usher in 2019 I just like to write about all the highlights of the previous year for posterities sake. It went by fast and with so much happening it’s sometimes hard to remember everything. I’d really like to better capture everything in numbers next…


The Samsung FlexDry DVE60M9900

I never thought that drying clothes could be fun and interesting until I received the Samsung FlexDry! It takes doing the laundry to a whole nother level. We live on a small farm with donkeys, goats, chickens, sheep, and three dogs so we’re always doing loads of laundry from dirty…


I’ve been on the both sides of the spectrum from leading engineer teams being forced to make the hard decision of quick fix or hack to meet a deadline. Causing the accumulation of technical debt.

More recently I’ve been focused on the product and features, pushing the engineering team to…


It’s been a long time, where have I been? Well, a little over a year ago we made a big change to our life/lifestyle and moved from sunny San Diego, CA to unrestricted and unincorporated Driftwood, TX (just outside of Austin).

I was excited to receive the Samsung POWERbot R7040 and instantly unboxed it, quick start guide, manual, charger, power supply, remote, and the vacuum bot. I set up the POWERbot on its charger to start it’s initial 1.5-hour full charge to start its first maiden cleaning.

Unboxing the Samsung POWERBOT R7040

First impressions, the box is fairly standard electronic/appliance type of packaging with some dense plastic air wrap around each part. It is definitely packed tightly and would be hard to damage in shipping and nothing very fancy. The quickstart guide is great and is easy to comprehend and the setup…


I’ve been very busy over the past two months, more to come on that but let’s just say I’m now a Texan! …


Everyday Carry (EDC) is a thing. Imagine my surprise when I learned that there are many communities around this subject matter. Here I thought I was alone in my obsession for bags and carrying everything I need each day.

Since cycling into work a lot less I’ve been in the…


I got off the plane and headed down to the rental car shuttle pickup outside of Dallas Love Field. Opened my phone and clicked on the SilverCar app and clicked on the button for a pickup. It gave me the choice of a text or a call so I sent…
