Apple Deals More Geek Crack

It will be no surprise to anyone that reads this blog that I so want the iPad from Apple. Seriously Apple stop dealing the Geek Crack, I'm obsessed with my iPhone enough as it is. Still debating if I am going to spend the money yet, but I WANT IT!! I hope Apple starts working on the iMan that I've been suggesting for months at some point soon.

Advice On Learning New Things

I came across this post today via Lifehacker (I site I LOVE - if you haven't checked it out, you must) and it's well worth giving a few minutes of your time to read it. It was written by a young programmer, Matt Nowack, but the advice is valuable to anyone that wants to learn new things and challenge themselves.

Lord Of The Froth

I did this post about great coffee gifts to buy when I didn't really know how my current boss best liked her coffee. As it turned out this gift idea was a great one to give her this year for the holidays, so that I could make her coffee the way she loves it at the office. The post is worth checking out if you need to get a gift for a coffee lover, but I also have a tip to share about making foam with a frother (like the one I suggested in the post or any one you buy) - FROTH it COLD! You can heat the foam afterward, but it will not froth nearly as well warm. I had no idea.

Need A Gift For Your Favorite Green Friend??

And no, I don't mean Kermit the Frog. If you or your boss has a friend or client who's into green living, Caldrea is a great line of products to buy. They have products for the home and great hand lotions as well (in a variety of scents). The packaging is chic and elegant and the price point is pretty reasonable.

Weekend Read

I'm not using the term in it's usual sense of all the scripts people take home to read over the weekend. I'm referring to what I will likely be reading on a weekend soon after I get the new draft of my tv spec done. The new book by George Lucas, Blockbusting, looks interesting and informative for anyone who loves movies and especially people who work in the business.

A Big Keyboard For A Small Smartphone

I can't explain why I want this keyboard for an iPhone that ION displayed at CES, but I kind of do and I can actually see a use for it. If you travel often and don't really need a laptop, but might end up needing to type a bunch of e-mails, it would being useful. I guess my decision about it will be based on the cost. When it's available for purchase, I will blog about it again.

A Great Local Place To Get Gifts For Your Favorite Foodie

It's hard to find gifts for the people you love that are super into food and cooking because they are so passionate that they buy themselves what they want. I love finding little places that I didn't know about that have great niche stuff for foodies. I just recently heard about a place in Pasadena called Beyond The Olive that specializes in all sorts of olive oil that looks pretty interesting. You can buy stuff from them online or pop in. If you have a foodie in your life, it might be worth checking it out.

Another Gadget For Me To Dream About

I love my iPhone I really do - well especially the non phone part of it, but the new Google Device, called The Nexus is making me want to stray a little. I'm usually not a cheater, but who knows what might happen now.

Drunk With A Twist Of Sugar High

Need a gift for your favorite wine lover who also loves sweets, try Cabernet brownies. Sugar and alcohol seems like an ideal combo if you ask me.
