Running with Technology

I am no Forrest Gump or Usain Bolt when it comes to running, but I have grown to enjoy it. I ran my first 10K when I was 17 years old at the Cooper River Bridge Run in Charleston, South Carolina. I didn't really prepare and had no idea what I was getting myself into. I was just happy to finish and earn the t-shirt. I ran that race for 5 years in a row but gave up running races as I got slower (and heavier) every year.

Pi Day, A Year Later

A year ago today I launched this blog, not knowing it would play a part in changing my life. What better day to launch a technology themed blog than on Pi Day (3/14), right? This morning, I walked through the campus of Southern Polytechnic State University (where I am pursuing a Masters in Computer Science) on the way to my assistantship and noticed Pi signs taped on buildings and signs. The geeks here at SPSU are celebrating Pi Day today with several events including a 3.14 mile run, a pi(e) walk, a pi(e) in the face (of your professor) fundraiser, and a pi(e) art show.

The "wink" that changed it all

Technology is amazing! I know that's a pretty general statement, but technology continues to change my life (for the better, of course). Technology, specifically the Internet, has really made a significant impact on my life over the last 5 years. I think it all began with the popularity of social networks, starting with Myspace. Myspace allowed me to more easily communicate with my friends, some new, some old. Now, Facebook, Foursquare, Twitter, Instagram, LinkedIn, and others are part of my social networking repertoire.

Rugged Tablets: A perfect fit for foresters

I have given presentations at several forestry conferences across the country in the last year about forestry related mobile apps for smartphones and tablets. The presentations typically lead to a discussion about hardware and whether we need rugged devices for field use. There are several case options including Otterbox and LifeProof that will help protect your device from accidental drops, water, or other elements that may cause damage.

New phones and tablets galore!

It has been awhile since I have posted here at forestgeek.com. It is not for a lack of trying, but my life has been so busy lately. I started graduate school earlier this year and that has taken up a bulk of my time. I am pursuing a Masters in Computer Science at Southern Polytechnic State University near Atlanta, GA. After working for several months with students at SPSU developing an Android app for my forestry business, I decided I wanted to go back to school to learn about software and app development.

Smartphones: Good Buys and Nice Tries

Yesterday, I posted about some of the latest and greatest tablets out there. Today, I wanted to take some time to write about smartphones. This is not an easy task. Unlike smartphones, most tablets come in a Wi-Fi only model. With Wi-Fi only models, you don't have to worry about the hassle of choosing a wireless carriers and their two year contracts. A few of the tablets also come in 3G/4G models that can be purchased through a carrier.
