Everybody Needs a Buddy….

Living in the Northwest, we pay some of the highest prices for gasoline. How do I know this? Not from the news, but from a simple app called GasBuddy. We all know that gas prices are not coming down, and every so often, it pays to call on a buddy for a little help.

2012 marks the 100th anniversary of the Titanic sinking. Since her maiden voyage and sinking on April 14, 1912, the story of the RMS Titanic has fascinated generations of researchers and fans. The 1997 blockbuster movie brought the ship to life and right into our living rooms. Everybody knows about Jack and Rose and their tragic love story, but what about the real passengers? What really did happen?

It’s no secret that the Internet lovers are flocking to Pinterest. 30 days ago, I didn’t know anything about it but with an average of 1.36 million users daily and growing, the social photo pinboard has taken the web by storm, and top online retailers are creating Pinterest boards. So, is Pinterest worth looking into?

“Really, Steve? Myspace?”
Yes, I know what you’re thinking—it’s nuts to be talking about Myspace and Justin Timberlake in the same blog. But hear me out: it may not be so crazy to be talking about this after all.
Enhance your iPhone 4 Pictures
Friday, February 10, 2012 by cyberacoustics
Some say that a picture’s worth a thousand words. I say: depends on the picture. With so many camera phones and point-and-shoot cameras out there, one only has to join a site like Flickr or even poke around on Facebook to see just how bad some pictures can be. But what if you could make your pictures stand out—just by using your iPhone, and spending less than $100?
“Portlandia—The other side of Portland, Oregon
Thursday, January 26, 2012 by cyberacoustics
Even though I’ve been working and living on the west coast for over 20 years, I still say I am from the east coast. I’ve lived outside of Boston, NYC, and Washington, DC. I’m a die-hard Yankees and Giants fan and understand the way of life back there, but I’ve been lucky enough to visit just about every major city in America. Each one has its own personality and distinctive culture. But when it comes to Portland, Oregon (“Ore-gone” if you’re a non-native), this city is in a world of its own.
Steve on CES: A Post-Conference Update
Thursday, January 19, 2012 by cyberacoustics
Well, I’m finally digging out from attending the Consumer Electronics Show last week. Believe me, it wasn’t easy. I had to cover approximately 3,100 exhibitors spread out over 1.8 million square feet all while dodging 153,000 attendees. Did I mention it was in Las Vegas? On a positive note, this year will surpass 2006 records which is a good sign that we’re bouncing back.
CES 2012 - What Will Be This Year's Hot Products?
Wednesday, December 28, 2011 by cyberacoustics
In less than two weeks, the marvel of CES will begin. People from all over the world come to Las Vegas to see what the electronics industry will showcase for 2012. If it plugs in, runs on batteries, or uses solar power, then more than likely you’ll find it at CES, and the question is always “Which product will steal the show this year?” I already know that mobility is going to be hot once again. Any hand-held device like phones and tablets will dominate the floor space. Here is what I expect to see.

Ok, we’re less than 2 weeks away from Christmas and the funds are about to run dry. As always, the last person on your list is the hardest to buy for.

I feel your pain, so I have listed 5 cool gadget gifts for under $100.00 that might ease the headache of trying to find the perfect present. Here you go...
