Why I Hate the Xbox 360

A couple years ago I discussed my preferences for the Playstation3 and the Wii over the Xbox 360. Recently I’ve had new reason to renew my hate for that horrid device. As a quick background: I am a Microsoft guy… have always used their computers. In the last generation of consoles I owned only an […]

Lego Games on iPod and iPad

Our sons (3 and 5 years old) are playing more and more with Lego, which pleases me greatly as I was a Lego kid growing up. Being a hoarder I kept most of my old Lego as well we have bought several newer sets for the kids. In the last couple months the two of […]

More reasons I like my iPod Touch
