    Nexus 5 vs iPhone 5s

    I'm finding it fun to get a jailbreak-like experience without the cat-and-mouse game of jailbreaking iOS. Unlocked, rooted, and ROMmed, the sky really is the limit with regards to customization. I'm loving all my gesture shortcuts and navigation on a whole is much faster for how I use the phone...

    Nexus 5 vs iPhone 5s

    I've spent over a week now with my new Nexus 5. Being my first Android after 6 years of iPhoning, there is a lot to take in but here are my impressions of it so far (comparing to my iPhone 5, which I am still keeping): Screen The Nexus 5 has a really lovely screen. It will eat 1/3 of your...

    Can't decide to keep or not!

    My sister has that Droid and I think it's awful. Stuttery as heck. The camera is way too slow. It's heavy, too. The Moto X is a great phone by all accounts, but I'm waiting for a Nexus 5. The value with the Nexus line is undeniably good (if you're buying off-contract). And the well-known leaked...

    Disappointed with iPhone 5s

    I haven't. I'm waiting for the Nexus 5 announcement. Then it will either be that, a G2, or a Moto X for me.

    Disappointed with iPhone 5s

    The hardware has never been the issue with Apple. I think they still make the best handset on the market, although ignoring market demand for larger screens is a mistake, in my opinion. With few exceptions, they add features when they're developed to the "Apple smooth" level, not when the market...

    BBQs and grilling

    I just got one of these: http://www.amazenproducts.com/ProductDetails.asp?ProductCode=AMNPS5X8 You can use it in any grill. Or even a cardboard box.

    What did you Cook today?

    Tonight's sous vide beef roast. It went 20 hours at 132° and then 3 minutes on a super-hot grill. Not bad for a $10 round roast. I did, although I haven't used it yet. I need to procure some pork belly first. Once it gets a little cooler, I'll be doing some cheeses.

    BBQs and grilling

    More pulled pork today... this time testing out my new temperature controller on the smoker. It's holding a perfect 225° right now. It was very hard for me to maintain temps that low controlling it manually.

    What did you Cook today?

    Proper use of a microwave is a skill many lack.

    What did you Cook today?

    This time it was just a pot of water on top of a cheap electric griddle. I've done it before on the simmer burner of my stove, but this way was much more consistent. I'm about to blow some money on a full-blown temperature-controlling solution for sous vide with a crockpot or fan control of my...

    Just the iPhone5 these days. Little one won't let me hold her iPad anymore.
