Mar 31 2015 Email - The AppleWatch (Apr 2015)
Life altering decisions should not be taken lightly. I’m the type to brew and stew about them a long time before knowing what to do. But once I get clear, I like to burst into a room and announce them. “Honey, I’ve made up my mind!”

Trolls! - February NewsLetter (Mar 2015)
I barge in on my wife in the kitchen and startle her. I’m not supposed to barge, and startling is expressly forbidden, but I’m mad and I forget. The majority of our marital epic fail moments are due to me forgetting things. “I’m sick of Trolls!”

January 2015 NewsLetter - Grounded? (Jan 2015)
There are good times and bad in this world, but today will go down as a particularly dark day in history... [WARNING: Do not read the following sentence if you are driving, free climbing Yosemite, or operating heavy machinery. Reader discretion advised.]

Bad Christmas Cards - December NewsLetter (Jan 2015)
It’s nearly over, but it’s still that time of year. You know the one I mean, where you get pummeled with Christmas cards and Holiday newsletters?

Top 17 Things to be REALLY Scared of this Halloween - October NewsLetter (Nov 2014)
How can you tell when a writer is completely out of ideas? They invariably do a "Top 10" list! Or if they’re really depleted (or just lazy) they'll do a “ 7 Successful Something” list because coming up with 10 things is just too tiring. In a certain to be flawed attempt to prove that I'm neither, here are my top 17 things to be REALLY scared of this Halloween.

Sept 30 2014 NewsLetter - Happy Anniversay (Oct 2014)
Has it really been 8 years? Did I really forget my anniversary?

Aug 31, 2014 Email - The Tears of a Clown (Aug 31, 2014) (Sep 2014)
This month we take a short break from our normal humorous newsletters to reflect upon the life and death of Robin Williams.

Jul 30 2014 Email - Texas Pride (Jul 2014)
Our family just returned from a summer trip to Texas, the place I was born and raised till age 16 when I moved to Santa Barbara. A little bit of Texas goes a long way.

May 2014 NewsLetter - Breaking Up Is Hard To Do (May 2014)
I was only trying to move to a new web host. I had no idea things would get so complicated!

Apr 2014 Newsletter - iAddicted (May 2014)
"What if it's an emergency and the dog is choking?," my son argues. "Why would the school call to say the dog is choking?" Tune in for the iAddicted debate between father and ten year old to see who wins!

Mar 2014 NewsLetter - Meditation Machinations (Apr 2014)
“Om…….” “Om…….” “O.m.g. my back hurts,” I say to the empty room. Somewhere it is said that talking to yourself is a clear sign of insanity, but with plenty of other supporting evidence in my gene pool, I’ve never let it bother me.

February Newsletter - Side Stepping (Mar 2014)
My son is on to me! Will I be able to cheat my new FitBit, wearable exercise tracking device? Word is, extortion may be involved.

Jan 2064 NewsLetter - Dear Diary, 2064 (Feb 2014)
Well, it’s been 40 years since I took over Mick’s Macs & Son from my currently 102 year old founding father. It’s all I can do to keep him out of the shop. He still tries to upgrade nonexistent RAM in the holo-generators and reminds clients we do iPhone repairs. He seems oblivious to the fact that no one has even seen a phone in the past 20 years and kids today communicate entirely through avatars. He means well, but everyone just looks at him as if he’s crazy when he talks about how perfect everything was B.S.D. (Before Steve’s Death). From there he’ll preach about the lost skills of typing and literacy. I usually have the iBots gently guide him to the holo-room where the remastered Star Trek series will entertain him until nap time.

Dec 2013 NewsLetter - 14 for 14 (Jan 2014)
Prediction #12 Rumors will abound about iPhone 6 with exciting new features like being slightly curved, slightly thinner, slightly lighter, with about the same battery life. It will not fit any of your existing iPhone accessories or charging cords and will still confidently shatter when dropped.

October 2013 NewsLetter - Cats and Dogs and Mavericks (Nov 2013)
Did Apple really run out of big cats to name their OSes after? Is Mavericks a beach or a dog? Tune in here to find out!


















Oct 2011 NewsLetter - Steve Jobs 1955-2011 (Oct 2011)
Steve Jobs 1955-2011 Since about 4pm yesterday my world has been totally different. I knew Steve Jobs was ill, but it hit me as a numbing shock that he had died.  He seemed iconic, bigger than life.  How can he be gone?  He was the thing that made technology magic, exciting,mysterious, and the subject of massive rumor mills all...
