Microsoft released its very own fitness band today. Microsoft Band is a sleek, techy, black wristband that works with Microsoft Health. It also allows you to interact with Cortana, get text messages, and access your calendar and notes. I’m all about this gadget!
UBER is a popular private car service that you can sign up, access, and use from the convenience of your own smartphone. They are in most major metropolitan areas and have apps for the iPhone, Android, and Windows phone platforms; which I give them big props and kudos for. I’ve heard a lot of good things about them on the service side and they are always hiring and looking to build their driver ranks.
So the Dallas Cowboys stubbed their toes last night on Monday Night Football dropping an overtime game against their arch rivals. Washington eked out a victory 20-17 in a great, gritty game that saw their third down blitz package bother the Cowboys for damn near three quarters. On the up side I really liked how the Cowboys didn’t really panic at any more point during the game and remained committed to the running game. Tony Romo injured his back on a tough, twisting sack that took him out of the game.
Last week I attended a social shin dig at the HQ for Couch Surfing in San Francisco. I’ve hear a lot of good thing about CS since moving to the Bay Area and I know some folks that use the service. I’ve always wanted to learn more about it so I signed up last week to check it out. I noticed they had grilled cheese and wine soiree so I got signed up and decided to check it out.
I love learning new words and new vernacular. I attended WordCamp SF this weekend and I picked up a new term from another developer. In her presentation she was talking about web portals she uses specifically for doing mock-up sites or to test and demo products and features to clients or her internal teams. She calls these sandbox sites.
The Judge, starring Robert Downey Jr. and Robert Duvall is an absolute MUST SEE folks!!! This is an A+ top rate film and I don’t give out that grade very often. The story is riveting, the acting superb, the chemo-shower scene is one of the most intense and well done scenes as I have seen all year. Seriously, this is an awesome, dramatic, and wonderfully complex film that you will not regret seeing.
