Over the years since i started blogging, I have found myself writing a post for the sole purpose of sending it to someone the next time they ask me a question like “What is the point of Twitter?” or send me a message asking me to like their Facebook page. Well, this post is another one in the series.

So I have been using Google’s Nexus 7 tablet (sent to me by Google) for a month now, and I figured that by now, I know the device well enough to formulate an opinion and share that opinion with you. But first, a little background.

Let me start this post with a short story/disclosure. A while back I traveled across the world and stopped over on the way for a few hours in Italy. While the pizza there looked delicious, I found myself wandering into the electronics store in the local airport. There, in the middle of the store were the Bose QuietComfort 15 Noise Cancelling Headphones. Now, a little background. I am no audio expert and so I never owned any fancy earphones in the past. My older brother, however, is. He loves him some good sound and his house is lined with Bose everywhere you look.

One of the things I have noticed over the past few years is that technology and the billion dollar industries it creates have gone completely mainstream. While processors, screen resolutions, and data connectivity types were terms used by geeks only a few years back, now, the latest iPhone or Samsung Galaxy is a topic of discussion among pretty much all parts of the population.

Around the time of Apple’s developer conference WWDC every year, I am faced with a dilemma. Do I update my iPhone/iPad to the new version of iOS, which is in Beta for developers or do I wait till it is more stable and publicly available? Somehow, I always come up with the same answer and it involves my heart stopping for a few minuts while my precious iDevices come back to life. If you have updated an iPhone or iPad, you know exactly what I am talking about.

I have been using an iPhone for a few years now as my primary mobile device. Of course, I have a few other devices I play with throughout the day, many of them running Android but my main phone has been an iPhone since I ditched my BlackBerry.

Looks like College Humor has done it again, created a spot-on video. The app described in the video below is exactly what every person who has ever thought of an app idea needs desperately.

TweetBy: Hillel Fuld (@hilzfuld) Every so often a new technology comes along that you instantly know will be a hit and set a new standard. You know, the original iPhone is an obvious one, but there are other ones that are smaller and also left their impression on the world of technology. Things like the [...]

Seeing someone join Twitter and watching them make the same mistakes so many others have made is often painful. I am referring to spamming celebrities in the hopes that they will get a response (and more followers, as a result). I am talking about misusing hashtags on every word in the tweet, in the hope to show up in people’s searches (and get more followers, as a result). And those are just two of the many things you see new Twitter users doing.

The tech space is so ironic sometimes. While pundits refuse to believe that anyone can compete with Android’s market share and are quick to dismiss Windows Phone with the claim “They are just too late to the game”, the same is happening to Google in the social space.

As I spend more time on the social Web, some enlightening facts become apparent daily. For example, I know I hang out on Twitter and Google+ way too much, but most normal people do not. I know, it is hard to believe, but some people have lives outside of Twitter and Google+. What that means is that when I share a blog post I wrote, a cute picture, or any other type of content on Twitter, Facebook, Google+, or any other platform, there are going to be many people who do not see that content.
