Sorry, We Are Not In Right Now


Thanks for checking out our blog, we really appreciate it.

However, our blog has moved to

Sorry that you have to visit another site to find us, but it is worth it...we have all of our 'classic' posts and comments on the new blog, plus a ton of new thoughts and ideas.

Why are we moving? Basically, Blogger failed us and never responded to our emails and requests. A clear example of poor customer service...too bad, we liked Blogger.

Come over and see us on the new blog.

Microsoft Launches 'Surface'

Microsoft will unveil a coffee-table-shaped "surface computer" on Wednesday in a major step towards co-founder Bill Gates's view of a future where the mouse and keyboard are replaced by more natural interaction using voice, pen and touch.

A Surface computer is able to recognize physical objects from a paintbrush to a cell phone and allows hands-on, direct control of content such as photos, music and maps. Surface turns an ordinary tabletop into a dynamic surface that provides interaction with all forms of digital content through natural gestures, touch and physical objects. >>Full Story

Thoughts// While the initial launch of Microsoft Surface will be aimed at hotels, retail establishments, restaurants and public entertainment venues, the possibilities of such a technology in a Visitor Information Center setting could be very intriguing.

Imagine if visitors could sit around this table and download information, maps or photos directly to their phone. Or allow visitors to be able to pull up and manipulate various maps with just the touch of a finger. With a reported starting price of $5,000-$10,000, this type of technology may not be that far away.

Make sure you watch the is pretty amazing stuff.
