A few months ago I was in NYC checking out all the latest gadgets and accessories at a tech conference. A small company called inNuevo caught my eye. It is the sister company (and product arm) of architectural and interior design firm Marshall Moya Design (MMD) whose recent work included the beautiful renovation of Washington, DC’s historic Howard Theater. The company is now using all its years of architectural design knowledge to dabble in the iPad accessory market.

Even the best photographers need a little help to make their photos shine in the digital world. We are coming closer and closer to the day where photo-editing software actually can auto-correct almost any image. Adobe’s Photoshop Lightroom 5 gives users the power to enhance their creations at a reasonable price.
It always strikes me as odd that so many people spend a fortune on really nice home theater systems but then skimp or neglect the most important piece – audio. I happen to be one of those folks. Which is sad, considering that I do review Blu-rays and DVDs. The reason I always skimp on the audio portion is that for me a nice 2.0 soundbar has always been “good enough”.
Are you in the mood to rent and stream a 3D movie but always disappointed in the very limited selections – assuming you can even find an online service that even supports 3D movies? iTunes doesn’t support 3D, Vudu just started a limited selection of 3D streams, don’t even get me started with Cable OnDemand. 3DGO has stepped in to fill this gap. Their new online service is dedicated to streaming 3D movies. Check out my video interview after the break – and yes, I put in a very rare appearance on camera. What was I thinking!? :)
Webflakes is an interesting new project. The goal of the site is to provide a better selection of curated content to American audiences. They do this by hand selecting popular international bloggers and translating their content into English. I recently had conversation with Webflakes CEO Nathan Shuchami. Nathan has over 20 years of experience in executive and CEO positions.
The first thing you notice when you fire up Windows Phone 8 for the first time is how unique and unlike its two main competitors (Android and Apple) WP8 really is. This new operating system is a bold step forward for Microsoft and in many ways for all mobile platforms. I know you can skin Android devices however the manufacturer and to a lesser extent the user wants, but as an iPhone user for six years I’m really, really tired of the blandness of iOS. I want some pizazz, some innovation, and some oomph. For good or bad, WP8 delivers these in spades.
Something very weird happened to me two weeks ago. The Microsoft PR team reached out to me to ask if I’d like to take their Windows Phone 8 “switching challenge.” This is part of their new program to convince people to dump their iPhones and Android phones in favor of a Windows 8 model. They asked me which phone I wanted to try and my response was: Send me the best phone you have. They sent over a beautiful blue ATT Nokia Lumia 920.
