And…this week in awesome

OK.  I admit it.  I was feeling pretty bummed out last week when I wrote my confessional.  But this week I’m feeling way better.  It might be because I have upgraded to a 15″ MacBook Pro with a retina display.  Yeah.  Seriously.  Retina is like a game changer.  I can’t go back to a normal screen.  I feel like all of a sudden the world is clear for the first time.

Speaking of gadgets and computing.  I had a veritable stockpile of goodies when I arrived home after a month away.   There are so many things that I need to install and configure that I haven’t even had a moment to touch.  A new wifi cam, Leap Motion, another Pebble watch, 2 Chromecasts, an electronic muscle stimulator (yeah, reahab stuff) and then there were a few packages that weren’t even mine containing goodies.

After I get around to opening all of this stuff I should also be getting to reviewing some of it.  There are a few winners and a few losers in my lot so I guess I’ll have to let you know.  But the one thing I can say is to run out and get a retina display.  I gave up the MacBook Air for it.  Actually I spilled water on it and it died, but such is life.
