Viiiiva Heart Rate Monitor

viiiiva

One of the things I like to do when I’m cycling, is keep track of various statistics related to my ride. This includes things like speed, cadence (how fast I’m peddling), and heart rate. To do this, I have a number of sensors that connect to my bike computer (Garmin Edge 810).  The sensors communicate …

Responsive Web Design

Responsive iPhone

As part of my fundraising effort for the Tour de Cure, I registered the domain “ridewithdavid.com”. I wanted an easy to remember domain that I could use as a portal to the fundraising page that the ADA provided. So I created a basic web page that would redirect the visitor to my fundraising page after …

Flight Status, Siri?

2012-12-03 17.07.34

OK, I admit it … I kind of like Siri on my iPhone. Some of the features are darn right useful … being able to tell the phone to remind me about something based on location, get the current weather, send a text message by voice, etc. Recently I found a case that Siri seems …

OK, I’ve had this phone a few weeks … time for me to list some of the things that I don’t like about it. First a caveat … in general I do like this phone a lot.  Some of the things I’m about to list are possibly due to policies imposed by the mail services …

And Now I’m a Droid

Motorla ATRIX

Android … to be specific. I decided it was time to upgrade my phone … and switched to an Android based phone.  I got a Motorola ATRIX. I was split between the ATRIX and the HTC Inspire … the Inspire has better battery life and a bigger screen, but the ATRIX has expandable memory and …

AT&T Microcell

Microcell Activation Error

We’ve never had good cell phone coverage at home … even when we had Verizon service. The coverage with AT&T is even worse … but, we do like the iPhones. I was pretty interested when AT&T announced they were rolling out 3G Microcell devices. Basically, a Microcell is a tiny 3G cell site.  It provides …

eBooks Readers

I just finished the 12th book in Jim Butcher’s Harry Dresden series … Changes. The book was quite good … very intense … and a shocker of an ending. I thought this was the last book of the series … but I’ve read somewhere else that there are eight more books planned for the series. …

iPhone Complaint

Well, not so much a complaint about the iPhone … more a complaint about the manufacturers of iPhone accessories. Specifically … I really wish they would design accessories that are supposed to hold and/or dock the iPhone so they are adjustable enough to accommodate a sleeve or case that the iPhone might be in.

iPhone 3G S

It’s been more than a year since we got the original iPhones … so when Apple announced the new hardware version for the iPhone, I figured it was probably worth getting.   The new version has a lot of features that I wanted … and, frankly, thought should have been in the first version.
