  • Price Check by Amazon: Free iPhone App Compares Price Of In-Store Items With Amazon's Prices

    Amazon has released Price Check, an iPhone App that could make shopping this holiday season a little easier. The concept is pretty simple: you go to the mall and see an item that catches your fancy.

  • Christmas Memory ™: D&D by myself


    I was a bad nerd. I wanted to do all the nerd things – program, play D&D, read fantasy – but I was no good at BASIC, didn’t have any friends, and for some reason I could never get into hardcore fantasy sci-fi novels.
