Technology Blog – Not Made of WOOD

August 6th, 2009 at 6:15 pm by under Entertainment

I just wanted to write a quick post because we got a note into the newsroom today about the tech blog.  This is it.  I do not have a dedicated link, like you may find for Bill’s blog on the top of the main homepage, but an undaunted reader should know there are other ways to find the tech posts.

The easiest is to go here: My Posts ( You can also go to the entertainment section of the blogs (  There you’ll find a chronological list of the postings, which you’ll notice Aaron Lafferty frequents more than I.  You can also find the five most recent posts on the homepage, but my posts reside there for only a short time usually.

My most recent reviews were for the BlackBerry Curve 8900 and the Palm Pre (which actually came in one, two, three parts).

I also do peripheral reviews for gaming companies, I really liked the Razer Sphex (a very economical gaming-grade mousing surface that has an adhesive on the bottom of it to stick to your desk), and I found the Logitech G19 gaming keyboard stunning, if impractical. My favorite mouse right now is the Razer Mamba, though I use a Razer Lachesis myself.

I’ve built a PC for the blog and listed out components. I saw the future of the home phone.  My ears have been blasted by a nice set of cans, and I’m working on getting another pair of headphones for review.  I’ve also met an android, even though it was encapsulated within a phone (the T-Mobile G1).  I’ve also been caught in a storm (which would have been a better name for my BlackBerry Storm review in hindsight).  I also told people not to buy a Blu-Ray player, though I am wavering on that declaration (I still need cheaper movies).  I’m in love with DVR’s.

When it comes to games, I’ve been Left 4 DeadSoiled My Plants and gotten stuck in a World of Goo.  I’ve done battle with Demigod, seen the Fallout and witnessed the Dawn of War, but never delivered the multiplayer review on it (which could change seeing as they just released a rather massive patch for the game adding much depth).

You can also follow me on Twitter, where I post immensely more than I do here (probably because it’s limited to 140 characters).

I’m working on a review right now for Bookworm Adventures Volume 2 (a great game for wordsmiths or their apprentices), and just today opened up a HP Mini (a netbook provided for review by Verizon).  I also recently was able to sign up for a Google Voice account and will be posting my thoughts (so far I love it).

As for my original introduction post, you can find it here. I hope this was helpful.

    My converter box doesnt work. I used to get channels 3, 8 13, 17 and 35 with simple rabbit ears, I can hardly get channel 13 with the box and the new antenna. Ive gone over the installation time and again with no results. adjusing the antenna does nothing. Any suggestions?

    I’m not an expert in that regard, but WOOD TV has a hotline setup to take DTV calls. It’s 1-877-FYI-ASK8. I’m not sure if it’s still up, but you may want to give it a ring.
