I ran into this Pringles Can offer this evening after popping a few of these crispy treats. I was curious to see if it was worth investing in a total of 4 canisters of these chips. Thanks to youtube, I have the opportunity to get a preview of this sound device. After watching the following video, I just wonder what can be done to this can to increase the bass output? Modifications or hacks will surely be coming next.

Back in the day when I had control of my Hotmail inbox, I used a nifty email client program that was attached to Windows called Outlook Express. It allowed me to check (offline & archive) my mail, tune into the groovy newsgroups, and update my contacts with ease. After the Vista upgrade, I lost my friend.
Now, I have discovered Windows Live Mail, my long lost friend has been replaced with a lean mean machine! I am currently checking it out so I really cannot share my personal pros and cons of this new product. However, I am sure that I will not be disappointed. Thanks Micro$wizzle!

Finally making time to jot a few thoughts in my blog….
This year I have different role at my school. I have taken on the responsibility as the official tech contact in addition to co-teaching in an 8th grade math resource classroom.
I will utilize my blog in addition to twitter to facilitate some meaningful dialogue on my experiences with both challenging endeavors. I look forward to working on my SLO (Student Learning Objectives) and PDP (Professional Development Plan), too. Sarcasm intended (just kidding!)
I will share details of these two required beasts later…

DirectTV is about to launch some very special technology this month. Starting on June 11, they will broadcast the 2010 FIFA WorldCup in HD 3D! Unfortunately, you MUST have an official 3D TV to see the special effects. Right now, I believe Panasonic is leading the way with this technology with DirectTV. Haven’t heard much HD 3D news from LG, Vizio, Samsung or Sony. However I know they will push some quality TVs too but I am wondering on the $$$ tags, ya dig?
I also haven’t been by BestBuy lately to see if any are on the shelf, but word on the street that the price of these sets will be reduced for consumers to get hooked. I can see how these TVs will lower the cost of NON-3D sets (thinking about selling mine now!) and the benefit of bars/pubs to pick these up as gimmicks to lure customers that cannot affort but desire to watch that big game in 3D. Yes, the future of television is here…

Hmmm…. I am sure that you have seen either of these two new codes (QR & Microsoft tags/codes explained on Joseph Kim’s blog)especially if you read any current magazines.
UPC codes has been around for awhile and for years, people in marketing has been trying to make it useful for the consumer. In the late 90′s Radio Shack pushed the cuecat to help consumers to scan products to go to the vendor’s website. Unfortunately, this concept did not materialize to anything the average person would really want to do.
However, in the past few years, vendors have been experimenting with the usage of QR codes on smart phones as demonstrated in the image below. I am sure that the usage mobile tags will continue to grow in this smartphone age.

Kinda funny that I ran into some info that exposed this new national holiday that is being pushed by Story Corp. My pastor last Sunday touched this topic saying that we should practice listening to our Creator, versus speaking to Him only. In other words, when generally communicating, there is usually input and output – a bi-directional flow. So as Christians, why don’t we practice this in our prayer life? He further stated that listening requires a demands a reaction. So I am gonna stop there and ask you who will you listen to tomorrow? Check out the above video for some ideas…

I am glad that the leader of our nation is addressing this issue…

Since the summer is over for the most of us teachers, I guess that it is time for Mr. R to get back on the grind with his blog. I hate that I have sat on a lot of info. However, if I can remember, I will kick out whatever I’ve ran across that’s worthy of discussion. Shalom!

This is a great start of father’s day weekend! On this day, for the record, the Emancipation Proclaimation was signed in this Great Country. Signed to do what?
