I seriously never thought I would say that, but EA has awoken the casual gamer in me again. Recently I decided to move my Xbox One out of my living room and into another location in my house, the Den (as it is labeled in my Sonos system). The den is where my computer is located as well as a 42″ TV. Obviously, the 55″ in the living room plus surround sound gives a greater overall experience, but I realized I didn’t necessarily want all of that. All i really need is my leather recliner (also in the den) and a nice HD TV. 10-15 years ago I was much more into gaming. I had all of the consoles, and was an avid PC gamer. (I’ll blame Unreal Tournament for that.) and since then my console playing has dwindled. I have an Xbox 360 in the closet which hasn’t been turned on for 4+ years, and my PS3 which I used to play fairly often hasn’t even been taken out of...

Roku For Dummies!

By on Aug 22, 2010 | 1 comment

I recently purchased a Roku HD player at a great price from Amazon.com. I am an avid Netflix user and streaming video to my laptop is nice but watching movies on a television is a much nicer experience all around. My Roku arrived this week and, unbelievably, I installed it on my lunch hour after I ate my lunch and I was not late returning to work! In less than thirty minutes I connected it to my television and the internet, registered my device with Roku, Netflix, and Amazon Video On Demand. It was an amazingly simple process. I had been told that I would need to manage my Netflix queue via the internet to add movies for streaming, however Netflix has made some upgrades that allow you to search for movies via your Roku device making adding and deleting from the device is very user friendly. Download speeds are fast and I have not had any issues with any movies needing to buffer as I...

Fun With Photos

By on Apr 2, 2010 | 1 comment

Years ago I used to be really into photography. I took 4 years of photography and graphic arts classes where I learned many things such as how to use an SLR camera manually, developing B&W film and color slides and making enlargements. I used to take photos all the time. It really was a great hobby. Over the last few years I have moved away from all of that, but recently I decided to give it another go! This past week I decided to make a light box. If anyone is interested I can make a blog post about how I did it, though you can find many ways to make one just by searching online. The first round of photos I took with it can be found in this gallery on my Flickr account. Also, since spring has arrived I started taking some photos outside. I will be updating my Spring 2010 gallery on Flickr fairly often I hope, weather permitting. If all goes well, I hope to keep up with this hobby...

Review: Kodak Playsport

By on Mar 26, 2010 | 3 comments

A few weeks ago I posted some unboxing shots of the newly released Kodak Playsport. I think I have used it long enough now to write a fair review of the product. Features I will begin first discussing some of the features of the Playsport. It is capable of 4 video modes, WVGA, 720p, 720p 60fps and 1080p. It is also capable of one still photo setting of 5mp. I am sure the 1080p quality level of recording is a huge selling point, but I tend to use 720p for the most part. The size/quality ratio just seems to be better for 720p. I feel that if I use 1080p for most videos, it is basically overkill and will just fill my card much faster than necessary. The 720p 60fps mode uses the same storage space as a 1080p video, but when there is a lot of motion this mode is clearly the best. It is very smooth with little to no motion blur when recording at 60fps. It is great. Truely. Unlike the Kodak...
