Teradek’s Cube is one of the best ideas I’ve seen in a while…

So there’s this little company in Irvine called Teradek, they have a good reputation for building IP video streaming boxes. The kind you would hook up to your edit suite to share cuts with directors or producers in another location. Cool right? Well ya but not exactly mobile, until now. They have just announced that […]


Why you should go see Step Up 3D…

I really liked Step Up 3D, I know, crazy right. I was tricked into seeing it and ended up enjoying it. As you can imagine the story was not exactly the greatest (hilariously bad at times, which is a good thing), but the dancing was truly amazing. Now to be fair my wife comes from […]

In large, I’m not a big advocate of all photography happening on your phone; I think the depth of field you get from a 35mm film […]


What happened to my MacPro update?

I’m just saying we waited for close to 2 years for an update and all Apple could come up with was a few more cores and a slightly faster PCIe buss. They don’t even build that stuff… Not cool. What happened to USB 3? How about another PCIe slot? I understand that it costs money […]
