I’m tired of Google firing me. Another Google product I use almost daily was put into the Deadpool today… Google Latitude. Just a month ago I wrote this article about the product and how my family uses it… and now it is gone. I do get the business side of this as they are not making money on them but what happens when I lose my Google Voice...

With everything from this past week going on I wanted to share a tool I use to let my friends and family know I am safe. I tell both my Wife and my daughter… “If you want to find me at any time just look on your phone” If for some reason you have not heard about it it’s called “Google Latitude” Latitude lets you see where your...

Data Cards – REVISITED

Mar 25, 2013

It’s been over 2 years since my last guide to Data Cards so I figured it was time for a new one… I have to laugh at all the people getting “Sponsored” by Mellenicom seeing as how it’s the #3 post of all time on my blog… I didn’t get one Due to the VERY limited nature of the beast I am intentionally not talking about...

Warren Buffet has been on a roll lately buying up newspapers… I can’t figure out why.  I made a blog post almost 3 years ago about “The Rocky” in Denver   I figured someone would face plant by now… but the papers keep getting saved. Moving to the country we found out very quickly that you can’t find out what is going on as easily as in the city. ...

A Slight Risk Of Profit – The weekend target in your hometown.

There has been a lot of press lately about those pesky storm chasers and clogging up roads all over the plains.  The media has been having a heyday talking with local Law Enforcement and Emergency Managers about if chasers are really worth it (From a safety perspective) for the “Problems” they cause.   Let’s throw out all the talk of saving lives and...

Feb 10, 2012

So with the “new” and improved version on the way (A new model that supports Android) and the old on clearance I decided to give it at try.   Amazingly I have never even heard of this thing until now and for the most part with good reason. The Appradio works “in concert” with your iPhone 4/4S (And I would assume older I will touch on...

We lost a Father, Son, Friend and Storm Chaser today whose passion for chasing will never be matched ever again. This “kid” would drive all night, every night to see a storm… most times alone just to see natures fury unload. I cried for a little while, I talked with friends, I joined in the “SN Tribute” like everyone else but in...

I was on the #1 show in the country tonight… In Norway

May 29, 2011

I have said time and again I don’t want to be on TV.   Monday over the lunch hour I received an interesting email from a news producer in D.C.   Apparently NRK (The Norwegian Broadcasting Company) wanted to do a story about Joplin and Storm Chasers and wanted to know if I could meet them in Joplin for an interview. Obviously I was not chasing Joplin...
