Recent Additions to Tech Portfolio

I recently dusted off my E*TRADE account and began trading again, my portfolio needed some updating for sure. About a year or so ago I got out of many tech stocks that I was into pretty heavy and did some serious diversification.

Project Glass by Google! Holy Cow!!

I was fascinated by the iPhone the first time I saw it, since then nothing has really impressed me until today when I saw the new Project Glass from Google. Okay, I'll admit I thought the iPad was pretty cool too when I saw it, but then it sunk in, it's a bigger iPhone, duh. This project Glass thing though, wow. In case you haven't seen it here's … [Read more...]

After a brief hiatus The Cotton Club was back online this evening w/ Keith Crawford, Tyler Presley, Steven Trotter, Chris Spencer, and Mike Fraietta to discuss Google+.

Thoughts on Google+

I have had a Google+ account for a while now and aside from a few chat sessions, or hangouts, the week it was launched, I pretty much just got around to checking it out this evening.  I must say I am pretty impressed so far w/ the level of engagement I see as well as the clean design that Google has brought to the table. One key feature that I … [Read more...]

This week my guests for The Cotton Club included Keith Crawford, Robert Blake, and Brant Collins.  Some topics … [Read more...]

Quick Thoughts on Google Buzz

Okay so when Google started pushing Google Profiles the other day I knew that they were laying the foundation for something social, and it wasn’t going to be Orkut on steroids, insert sarcastic giggle here.  I went ahead and setup my profile a few weeks ago, you can find my profile here... Turns out my assumption was correct, Google launched … [Read more...]

Feedburner Socialize Service (Push RSS to Twitter)

Lately I have had a lot of frustrations regarding Feedburner regarding the way they randomly drop my subscription counts.  On any given day my subscription counts can drop from somewhere in the 900’s to the 300’s for no apparent reason.  Most of the lost subscriptions can usually be tracked back to FriendFeed but after going back and … [Read more...]

How Bing Will Rank Your Tweets
