Apple iPhone vs. Google Android

Ran across an article on TechRepublic article A very personal Google Android vs. Apple iPhone war just got some more personality.

Email, JAWS, being blind – technology marches on

One of my clients has a website I was hired to completely redo as a CMS system. I accepted the job at a serious discount (mainly because I live there) and […]

Connecting the Dots – a solution found.

Sometimes the hardest thing about working with a technical situation is scoping out the best solution – especially when it isn’t the obvious one.

For example, let’s say you want to setup an online ecommerce store, but your pricing structure does not work with teh shopping cart out of the box. At this point you […]

Happy 4th of July!

Happy 4th of July! Don’t forget to remember from whence we came (hint: the Founding Fathers talked a lot about God – and not in some wishy-washy vague sort of way)

Projects currently underway:

Lakewildwood.org redesign MowProducts.com – tech help ..and of course, this site! Way overdue for a redesign
