8 Patriotic Wallpapers For September 11th

Today marks the 10th anniversary of the attacks on the World Trade Center in 2001. Since that day, we as a nation have rose to rebuild, both in a literal sense and in spirit. We’re building a new World Trade Center, we’ve taken down the man behind the attacks, and we’ve created a memorial to remember our losses. Today is a day to take a moment to remember the ones who have fallen for our freedom, and to be thankful that we have that freedom.

In honor of Sept. 11, here is a collection of patriotic wallpapers. You can view them here.

Sony SA Series Vs. Macbook Pro 13″

This post is part of program called “Charged and Ready” by Sony Electronics and Microsoft, where a group of college bloggers have been given a Sony VAIO-S series laptop to test and review.

As you may well be aware, I’ve been testing out the Sony SA Series laptop that Sony sent me a few weeks ago. In my last post, I compared the Sony’s battery life with that of my Macbook Pro. Now, let’s take a look at some other comparison factors of these two laptops. Read More…

Wallpaper Resources

I’ll admit it; I used to be a complete desktop customization nerd. If you were to look at my computer a year ago, you’d see Rainmeter bars everywhere with widgets for my email, Twitter, calendar, and notes, as well as a clock and lots of random lines that I just made to make things look complex and “computer-y”. Alas, I found that I ended up playing with my desktop customizations more than I actually used the functionality they provided.

Since then, I’ve become something of a desktop minimalist. I don’t even like having icons on my desktop – in fact, on my Windows machine, I used Fences to hide them. However, I still love finding awesome wallpapers. Read More…

This Laptop Has RIDICULOUS Battery Life. Also, Wanna Win One?

This post is part of program called “Charged and Ready” by Sony Electronics and Microsoft, where a group of college bloggers have been given a Sony VAIO-S series laptop to test and review.

Remember that Sony S-series laptop I unboxed a couple of weeks ago? Well, I’ve finally gotten a chance to test out its battery capabilities against those of my trusty Macbook Pro. In short, the results are quite awesome. Read More…

Who needs tech support?

If, and I quote, “your computer messes with you interface, and ain’t compatible with your RAM or something,” then YouTuber Steve McGranahan, “World’s Strongest Redneck”, has a fix for you.

This is probably the stupidest yet funniest video I’ve seen all day. Not because it’s actually funny, but because he has an entire channel with dozens of videos just like this. The South may not be bright, but it sure is entertaining. I found this channel after RayWilliamJohnson featured another video of him trimming his hedges by swinging a chainsaw around on a rope. I think I was hooked after he decided to sand the surface of a table by putting in on a road, sitting on it, and pulling himself along by grabbing the back of his friend’s truck with pliers. That’s proof that innovation isn’t taught in school, dammit.

 

Sony Sent Me A Laptop. Here Are My First Impressions.

This post is part of program called “Charged and Ready” by Sony Electronics and Microsoft, where a group of college bloggers have been given a Sony VAIO-S series laptop to test and review.

Sup internet bros (and ladies too). Last week, Sony sent me a free review unit of their just-released VPCSA21GX/SI laptop, which is part of their new S Series. As an “influential student voice” (it sounds weird to say that about myself), I’ve been asked to review this laptop and give my opinion as to whether it would be a good buy for students. Read More…

Is This The Best Webcam Ever?

Last night I got a couple packages in the mail. One of them was my copy of Adobe CS5.5 Master Collection (that’s right, bros), and the other was a webcam I ordered. This isn’t just any webcam, though; this is the Logitech C910 Pro HD Webcam. Read More…
