About a week ago I got a call on my cell from an electronic store in my neighborhood telling me my iPad2 had arrived. Having heard such good things about it from a friend of mine, I was excited to get my hands on it. I wasn’t disappointed. Simply put, the iPad2 is a thing…

the added pressure of living in a high tech world

The other night my wife and I watched the movie “Hot Tub Time Machine.” We enjoyed it but I can’t say it’s a must-see. What I will say is that for anyone who grew up back in the 80s you’ll laugh. The director did a great job capturing just what life was like back then.…
