MacOS is the Worst Part of Apple Silicon 2023/1/23 11:42 PM
I recently took a new job and my new employer gave me a choice between a Lenovo Thinkpad with Windows and an M1 Macbook Pro with MacOS. Even my least dedicated readers know that I have no love for Windows and have spent literal years trying to rid myself

Pop Goes the Gaslighting Weasel 2022/12/28 2:12 PM
I've spent a lot of time debating on whether or not I should even write this blog post. Truth is that I was this close to just letting the entire thing fade into oblivion but after searching out some reading material on the subject, I decided that I need

A Farewell to Arms 2022/12/6 3:57 PM
There is no great way to put this without a certain segment of my readers recoiling in horror, so I'm just going to say it. I'm tired of fighting for things on the job. After over 20 years of professionally being combative when I thought the situation c

The Siren Song of Set It and Forget It 2022/9/28 2:27 PM
The point of today's post, or diatribe if you prefer, is to push back against the notion that once you have a piece of tech integrated into a workflow, you are pretty much good to go barring any sort of critical failure. Sadly a lot of people believe thi

All Hail the Tech Magicians and their Cantrips 2022/9/7 3:33 PM
Before I launch into this month's diatribe I want to offer my readers a word of warning: I've been feeling very pessimistic about tech in general as of late and this piece will expose a large portion of that to my audience. If you are already depressed

Hasta La Vista Android 2022/8/4 12:48 AM
Well two and a half weeks ago I finally put on my big boy pants and took Annette down to the local Apple Store... and bought two iPhones. That decision came about because of years of accumulated frustration with Android, Google and Android OEMs. If you w

Sometimes The Only Winning Move Is To Not Play At All 2022/6/29 3:28 PM
Although this is mostly a tech blog, from time to time I have used this platform to share my political opinion. I don't know if any of my readers really care one way or another, but today I'm going to talk about politics a bit. So if you don't want to h

Proof of Life: I Still Have Something to Say 2022/6/22 2:17 PM
So its been a few months since I have posted anything here and the reason why is simple: I just haven't been feeling all that chatty lately. Now you might be thinking, "Has Jay finally run out of tech things to talk about?" and let me assure yo

Scam Review: Big Tech Bullshit 2022/2/16 12:06 AM
This is a post that I will probably come to regret writing and publishing in the future. The reason for that is simple. This post is going to make a lot of former, current and potentially future co-workers feel like idiots. That's because the topic for

The Great Social Media Retreat 2022/1/30 9:58 PM
A few weeks ago I changed my life on a whim. I deleted my Reddit and Twitter accounts. To be fair, I have deleted my Twitter account before, so perhaps that one isn't a big deal. My Reddit account on the other hand was practically a prized possession.

Year End Musings - 2021 Edition 2021/12/30 3:18 PM
I'll be honest: it's been tough deciding what to write for my last blog post of 2021. Not because this year hasn't been eventful, but rather because in true douche bag writer style, I couldn't come up with any kind of theme to tie all the things I wanted

Linus Tech Tips, The Time Has Come To Say Sayonara 2021/11/23 10:12 PM
So part two of the LTT Linux Challenge video series just hit and I gotta say: I'm done. After watching Linus slander Linux because of things that are totally out of control of Linux or were the result of his own obvious half-assery, I no longer have any i

So over the last few weeks Linus and Luke over at LTT / FloatPlane have been teasing us with tales of their so-called Linux Challenge. The basic premise being that whichever of them can switch from Windows to Linux on their daily driver home PCs, wins th

Fun, Franchises and ReMastered Classic Games 2021/10/6 2:35 PM
So long time readers will remember that about four years back, I posted a diatribe entitled "Repeat after me: Games are supposed to be fun" that basically railed against the realization that a lot of the new games floating around weren't actuall

Now Thats One Bad Apple 2021/8/14 2:20 PM
As some of you know, I had tentative plans to switch from my DeGoogled LineageOS / Android phone (some variation of which I have been using since 2016) over to an iPhone just as soon as they managed to rid their devices of that garish notch. Thankfully, t

The Rise of Ryzen 2021/7/20 12:39 PM
So anybody who is even remotely paying attention to processors knows that Intel is in some really deep shit. Back in 2014 they were essentially riding high above all of the competition and nobody could even come close to challenging their vice like grip o

Spock Was Wrong: In Tech it is Easier to Create than to Destroy 2021/4/5 8:17 PM
I assume most of you didn't already know this, so I'm going to clarify it up front. One of my favorite sci-fi trilogies is comprised of Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan, Star Trek III: The Search for Spock and Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home. Obviously the
