Trying Out Google Chrome

11 Sep, 2008 - 2 minutes
I had read about Google chrome and just had to try it out. I would’ve tried it sooner but I kept forgetting to boot into windows. I always like to try different things. I first tried to use it under wine but that didn’t work out for me. I’ll try again another time. I was disappointed right from the beginning. No menus? No title bar? That really takes away from the usability for me and just isn’t how I prefer things to be.

My Creative Zen Vision W

13 Jul, 2007 - 3 minutes
Molly gave me a Creative Zen Vision W for my birthday this year. I am impressed with how well I can see the screen. It’s bright even at 50% back light and has good contrast. That’s important to me because with my old player I could hardly see it with it’s pretty bad contrast. The screen is huge too. I have the 60 GB version which I would’ve preferred anyways. I’ve put everything on there and still have over 10 GB to spare.

My Thoughts Garmin 60csx

I know it’s not exactly new anymore but I thought I’d post my thoughts on it. I picked one up last August after my old Magellan Meridian Color was wearing out. After falling on some rocks near the Appalachian trail on NJ in a down pour the screen fogged up. I figured it was time for a new one. Molly needed a GPS because her etrex legend was falling apart and I decided it would be easier if we had the same ones.
