Why didn’t anybody tell me they released one of my favorite “Crap Cleaner’s” (CCleaner) for the Mac?  Granted, it’s still in the early BETA stages, it still seems to work like a charm!  I have been waiting for this release for awhile, so I am really glad to see it finally […]

Talking to Michael Mozart on Google Plus Hangout, he’s informed me of a new Youtube called Cosmic Panda. check it out!  He’s also the guy who Al from Al’s Toy Barn in Toy Story 2 was based off. For good reason too, considering he has a 6,000 square feet toy […]

  OK. Time for some nit-picking, but don’t worry — there will be a few positive remarks thrown in there. I have already complained enough (and so have many other Google Plus users) about the problem with the stream being, how do you say it, unreliable?  No, I’m not saying […]

While still in the very early stages of the Matt Fowler Network, I’m trying to decide which live streaming option to use.  There really are so many, it’s hard to choose. Right now, I’ve been playing around with Justin.tv, and I am happy with the results, but I am always […]

Steve Jobs wants Sean Connery to take part in some sort of advertisement, and Sean Connery isn’t having it. He doesn’t sell his soul to Apple. After all, he is James Bond. He’s Scottish. And he won’t have any of that, Mr. Jobs   (by the way, I realize that […]

For awhile, I kept all of my old posts (prior to 2007) on a Typepad blog. Why? Mainly because at one point in time they were on a blogger account. Then I exported them, and moved to Vox. Well, SixApart bought them out and I was forced to shove them […]

92 degrees outside.  How wonderful. I mean really.. earlier it was 88 heat index of 96. First I don’t get why they just don’t say it is 96 out.   Oh well. However. The high today was projected at 92.  I know most meteorologists can only go by what the flashy […]

…In FOREVER! I picked up a 12-pack today, so I could relive my childhood snack. No, they aren’t good for me. And there’s only 10% nutritional value (Vitamin C) packed inside– or so they say. But I don’t care. They sounded delicious, and go great with Sweet Tarts. I don’t […]

In honor of Subway’s “Februany” $5 Foot long special (even though February is almost over), I decided to ask my community one solid question: What’s your sandwich? Do you have that select one that you always get? I know I do. It’s the following: Bread: Honey oat Meat: Turkey Cheese: […]

When I die, it is too late. Oh well. Some of these life insurance ads are a little pushy if you ask me. What’s the price of my death? How I see it, once I’m gone it won’t matter to me.

When younger kids grow up, meaning ones who now  are currently 10 or younger — they will not know what it means to not have a cell phone, video game console, ipod, touch screen devices,  3D, high speed internet, social networking, among other things. Is this good or bad? One […]

Since my recent decision to pull out of the election and not run for President, I decided to make a poll so I can see what people actually think about this. Vote now: http://twtpoll.com/y6sojo Yes, I realize how short of a run this was… but it just wasn’t my style.

New Poll: No Longer Prez

I want to take the time to talk to my loyal readers about Google TV, and my prediction for the future of television and technology as we know it. First of all, I’ve have had the hunch for quite sometime now that Internet TV was going to make a comeback. […]

I wanted to touch base with those of you confused about my recent announcement. All I have to say on the matter right now is some things have to happen. Use twitter it is your friend. That is the best way and I’m not going to be keeping any updates […]


Edit: As of Oct. 27th 2010 – I have pulled out of the race for president. It was meant to be a funny thing to begin with, and became more serious than expected. Also, I have come to the conclusion that I have no place in politics. With that being […]

Can’t recall if it was AT&T or Verizon who said that Google was “free loading” on their network.

Google: First of all, I want to congratulate you on an excellent operating system. I hadn’t had the privilege of using an Android powered device until now. However, i’m confused as to why the Droid X has yet to receive the latest update 2.2 codenamed Froyo. Especially When the new […]

I have to get my hands on this story. It’s too much. It all started with Verizon issuing AD’s displaying a rich vibrant red 3G coverage map, and AT&T’s “spotty” blue coverage map. Of course, why wouldn’t this make AT&T upset. Turning to legal matters would seem like a sure […]
