Cold Weather Ahead


With the temperature dropping recently I’ve been debating picking up something warm to wear at or to work.  I’ve been debating between the following two:

Condor Men’s Summit Zero Lightweight Soft Shell Jacket Condor Men’s Alpha Tactical Fleece Jacket
CondorSoftShell CondorFleece

At the moment I am leaning more towards the Tactical Fleece.  Partially because I already have a nice Pea Coat but it’s not something I would wear around as much inside.  I really like the Soft Shell Jacket, especially the stow away hood but as silly as it may seem, the placement of the side pockets bothers me.  I like to put my hands in the pockets of my jackets when standing idle or cold and the placement of them on the Soft Shell inhibits that.  Whichever one I get I’ll do a review on and let you know what I think.

Initial Impressions for the new Google Inbox


Google’s new Inbox service seems to have slipped right by me as I only found about it last week.  Its being rolled out in typical Google fashion, that is “the limited invites to create buzz and demand”.  While its fun to be on the inside of this loop it can be frustrating to be left out.  Luckily there is an easy hack that I won’t bore you with.

It’s different.  My knee jerk reaction to different can sometimes be negative so I have to remind myself not to let old age creep in and to still keep an open mind.  I can see where they are going with it and after my initial, “yea but how do I …” questions are resolved I think I’ll have a better idea of what I think about it.

Stay tuned!
