Hardware : MacBook5.1 , iPod Touch 4, Apple TV 2, iPad 2 :
I have been called an Apple fanboy because I am invested in and like the OSX / iOS system and appreciate Apples hardware design and suprising Chinese build quality (thanks Foxconn). I like google Chrome as a browser, and think the term windblows is appropriate al la vista kin IE et. al.
I have a home built Linux only desktop and a pair of windows machines, and I manage a Win 7 laptop and desktop for a tech newb relative.
For cameras I roll a Pentax W90 for the rough when hiking and snowboarding: whilst I recently replaced a Canon A590is (handed down to the newb) with a Canon S95 for almost everything else. My iPod touch cameras get worked with the app PhotoStitch for strange photo fun or if my S95 is not with me.
I roll a Prius, Phantom X and GSXR600 on the street and buy ethanol free gas for my ice machines.
Former Engadget browser, I switched to TIMN and then The Verge because The AOL way is lost!
I dislike the big 4 wireless carriers for their data plan ripoffs, but rock a dumb phone on big red :|
I also dislike the Comcast / Time Warner telecom duopoly or anything else sleazy and unethical that is bad for the free market and consumers: but surf via Comcast xfinity cable :/
I am a Christian and a Scientist in RL, and have a Eco green bent for recycling, energy conservation, electric vehicles, organic foods and locally made goods.
I was a tech nerd long before I was an Apple fan, and like Ubuntu as much as I like OSX.
I like to joke around with my comments, so don't get too bent out shape: negative emotions are toxic!
PS: please excuse all of my typos: English is my primary language. The typos are driven by three issues. 1 iOS autocorrect, 2 Virtual keyboards and the lack of tactile feedback, 3 most of the time I am commenting on the verge it's via my iPod or iPad. I can't wait for comment editing to arrive on the verge!
