Conference Hound-Up February 16, 2012: Vodka Makes You Smarter and Cows Make You Popular

So now there’s a Windows 8 and a Mountain Lion for Mac OSX that I’m hearing about, both due out later this year.  Get ready to upgrade, everyone!  There’s something inherently cooler about downloading a Mountain Lion than downloading an Eight.  Maybe that’s just me, though. CrushIQ in Napa Valley provides two intense days of [...]

It’s Paul Newman’s birthday.  If he were still alive, he would be 87 and making the rest of us look lazy, selfish and ugly.  Let’s all enjoy some quality food products and watch The Hustler in his honor. Yesterday began the Houston Auto Show, and today begins the Pennsylvania Auto Show, Portland Auto Show, Greater [...]
