Electrical Outlet (June 2010)

Have your say

Which side of the fence are you on: Mac or PC?

(Or Linux/other?)

And why?

Upgrading computers is a treat

Truth is, I didn’t need the laptop.

But I lowballed an offer on eBay and the guy said yes and next thing you know, I’ve got a tablet PC. A Pentium III, for goodness sake.

First few days with the Motorola Droid

Is your phone -- or your phone service -- a perfect 10?

This is entirely unscientific. It has no meaning whatsoever. It’s a tiny sample.

But it was fun.

Went out among some cool people on Friday evening in downtown Champaign and started asking four questions:

Starting Friday in Champaign: Bunch of DIVAs selling gadgets and other stuff

 I wonder if I can sneak out of the office for a bit on Friday morning.

There’s a garage sale I’ve heard about, and garage sales speak to me on an elemental level. I often find two of my favorite things: bargains and gadgets.

I watched as you came closer. You knew I would, didn’t you?


Once in a while, there is a tease.

See you at the tweetup

There will be a gathering Wednesday evening of people who sure know a lot about gadgets. And how to have fun.

The event is the C-U Tweetup. It’s from 6 to 9 p.m. June 2. We hold them at different places. This one is at Crane Alley, 115 W. Main St., in downtown Urbana.
