Quick Word: How Many Alexa Echo Speakers is Too Many? Asking For a Friend

By  •  In General

Two minutes ago, I added an Amazon Echo speaker to my Amazon shopping cart because it was just $53 and I’d been hoping to catch them on sale for weeks. Now I’m wondering if one can possibly have too many Echo speakers in a single house?

Quick Word: My new phone, the Apple Watch

By  •  In General

Let me preface all of what I’m about to say with this: I’m a technology lover that finds himself hating technology. It’s all too complex. When I want to do something, I want to do it. I don’t want six steps and a troubleshooting guide.

A taste of Mass Effect Andromeda has me wanting more

By  • 

Bioware finally takes the blanket of secrecy fully off Mass Effect Andromeda this week. It’s impossible to overstate how popular the Mass Effect franchise is. I have friends with weapons from the game tattooed on their forearm (Hello Stein.) Members of my family have insisted on sending me home from a party early so that I could play the first three games in the series.

I saw a character skin that I liked and figured I’d download it. After all, I spent $100 on a game and Season Pass. I might as well take full advantage.
