Quiet Reflection Room

Apparently there is a Quiet Reflection Room at work. What is this room for? Can't people  reflect at home or at church? Here is an idea: go to the reflection pool by the Lincoln memorial and reflect there.

RIP Nexus 7

HTC One brief

I got annoyed when trying to get my new phone from Sprint. I did not understand why they needed my Facebook account or my Dropbox account to set up the phone. I don't know the passwords, so I took the phone home. Turns out there is a giant Facebook widget you can not get rid of. Lame!

Looks like the phone uses DropBox to backup the phone. Got 23 GB for 24 months free. Do I get charged for the space after 24 months? Lame!

After a year of using the pure Android experience on the Nexus 7, I can feel the differences. Mostly minor.

Google Voice integrated with Sprint! Voicemail now handled by Voice. Hopefully Google does not kill this product.

Fortunately you can create a custom Home screen so you do not have to see that Facebook widget. Overall, I like it.

I was a bit annoyed I could not figure out how to get Google Now, then I found it! Sweet.

First Smartphone for me. I think I can get used to it. Basically it is my PDA with a phone app and data connectivity. With the case, I got from Otter box, it feels a bit bulky, but I think I'll be able to use my Jabra clip when I commute or walk about. Should be just fine.

Cruise ships

Recently got back from a cruise on the Crown Princess.

I thought it was interesting that we docked right next to Disney
Magic. That was my first cruise ship.

After they get a female president and a gay president, are they going to focus on getting a good president?

One rrason you would add ASP,Net controls in SPD pages is that you can use them as filter controls for Data views. "Cool."

The Neverending Story audio book at my local library? On the web site anyway. "The movie is better."
