Jarvis Standing Desk Review

I’ve had a standing desk for a while now, I have had one at Uncubed for years, but when Nicole and I decided to redo our home office (we both primarily work from home) I wanted us both to get standing desks.  In the way back it was easy, Geek Desk was more or less the only/main game in town. Now however, there’s no shortage of options, and opinions :) As we do now, I started by asking around on Twitter and Facebook. Many chimed in with what they use, or what they’re looking at for themselves. Rarely did anyone recommend the same thing as anyone else, until (IIRC) two people mentioned the Jarvis. Then someone pointed me to this awesome blog post. Which quite literally saved me a good couple…

Stop comparing everything to an iPad

I was at a Nintendo event last week, for a sneak preview of their new WiiU. (Pronounced, I think. We you). The big new feature of the WiiU is the game pad controller dealy. Which has a large screen (Which seems to be enough to warrant a comparison to the iPad). During the event I asked a lot of questions of the demo wranglers, to make sure I knew exactly what the WiiU was, and how it was gonna fit into my life. Doing so made it clear, that much like the…

I Am Not Busy

I’ve talked about being busy before. Lately it’s kind of come back around again with a post in of the NYT titled “The ‘Busy’ Trap” I’m not busy. When a friend says “let’s go get coffee” I go. When my wife IM’s and asks if I want to take a walk, I go. When Bike to work day happens, I ride in it. When there’s a party in a park, I go to it. When an opportunity to take a trip with my wife comes up, I take it. I get my work done though. It just doesn’t consume me. I run my own business, two of them actually. If anyone should be busy I could argue it’s me. But I’m not. Do I have things to do? Yes many of…
