GPS Sends Almost 100 Drivers To The Middle of A Field
If I were stuck in traffic and my phone told me it had a plan to get me out, I might throw a Hail Mary and go for it no matter how weird it seemed (hey..at least we're moving, right?) - but it's a good reminder that you can't just blindly follow the advice of technology (even Google g…
Alexa Meets Big Mouth Billy Bass
One of the most useless, but decently selling redneck hall of fame gifts, Big Mouth Billy Bass, is getting reborn as a useful, high tech smart speaker.

New Phone and Starting Over
I got a new phone yesterday and the entire process just made me feel stupid. Here's a small list of things I didn't know the answers to, when asked yesterday.
My GMail password. My iTunes password. My 4 digit code for the Verizon website...
Time for a New Phone
Here's my list. Root canals, colonoscopy, long meetings at work, and bad service at restaurants.
