Standing on the Bridge of the U.S.S. Enterprise [VIDEO]

Enterprise D and Bird of Prey

There's nothing quite like it. It was August 2008, just two weeks before the closing of the Star Trek Experience in Las Vegas, NV and there I was standing on the bridge of the starship Enterprise. It's an incredible feeling for a life-long Star Trek fan. Now this was the bridge of the Galaxy Class starship Enterprise NCC-1701-D as featured on Star Trek: The Next Generation, not the original bridge from the original series, but it was no less exciting at the time. 21 years after we first saw Captain Picard command from it, relaunching Star Trek back on television, there I was standing on what seemed to be an exact replica of the television set.

After An Initial Stumble, the iPhone 5 Proves Itself [VIDEO]

iPhone 5 in Hand

After over two years using the iPhone 4, I was ready to move up to the 5 when it was released. As I did with the original iPhone, the 3GS, and 4, I was there on the release date waiting in line for it. The line was different this time around. Two years ago it was a little more than 3 hours from start to finish, this time it was only 90 minutes. I suppose my local Apple store has gotten better at handling the lines.

Tweetbot for Twitter Hits the Mac App Store

Tweetbot MacTweetbot, the long awaited Twitter client for the Mac is now available in the Mac App Store. For several months I have been alpha/beta testing the app on the Mac. I had previously been using YoruFukurou (not an insult, it means NightOwl) as my main Twitter desktop client. Although perhaps not perfect (then again, I haven't found a perfect Twitter client on any platform), it has powerful features for power users such as myself on Twitter. That said, it may not be the prettiest client either. Enter Tweetbot. Finely crafted and honed visually, Tweetbot is pleasing on the eyes and ears. If you have used one of their iOS clients, you will know what I mean.
