Praise for those in the “Tech Generation”

Are you one of those who are “as conversant with technology as you are with breathing”?

If so, you will not be surprised at the comments in David Pogue’s recent column in the New York Times in which he discusses the fascinating ideas his students came up with when they were set the task of re-designing the ordinary watch.

Novel as the ideas were, his column didn’t show pictures of any of the design ideas mentioned. A little web browsing for “unusual watch designs” brought a link to the following site with its 15 Unusual and Creative Watches, which provide some visual examples of just what is possible when designers turn their hands to everyday items.

Tech Tricks and Tips – reminders?

I can never be reminded too often of the basics of technology. Here David Pogue, the New York Times’ technology columnist, provides another group of those little helper tips that can save you so much time. As he puts it, we all have “knowledge holes—things everybody thinks everybody else knows about the basics of consumer electronics.” Thank you, David, for helping fill some of mine!
At the end of his blog post he mentions his previous batch of tips and tricks. They’re worth a look, too.
