Indian Tech Support

This is a slightly humorous short story I wrote a few weeks ago. The story is basically an exaggeration of the frustration someone might face while trying to work with tech support over the phone.

Feel free to share the story with others or tell me what you think about it. And yes, I drew the RAM stick.

Macworld 2011 Photo Gallery

Geeks Rule was busy this week visiting the Macworld Expo 2011 at Moscone West in beautiful San Francisco. I know I had a blast walking around the expo floor and taking pictures.

I purchased some new earbuds from Sennheiser and even got some comments on my cool hair and wire bracelet! Check out our photo gallery of cool Apple and tech products on Dropbox and Facebook.

Surprise on September 1st

Redesigned products and new operating systems weren’t the only hot topics at the Keynote on the first of September. Naturally, an event so centered on music can’t possibly go without a live performance. The surprise guest, though, blew me away. I had never expected to hear him introduced as “…one of our favorite artists” by Steve Jobs, but when I saw the album artwork Steve displayed on the screen, I nearly wept for joy.

Chris Martin stepped onto the stage.

Although the rest of the group had been “too lazy” as Martin put it, to attend, he had been more than willing to play for the crowd in San Francisco. He played two of Coldplay’s greatest hits (Yellow and Viva La Vida) and a new song, called “Wedding Bells” that may or may not be released. Coldplay is working on their next album, which I predict* will be released sometime next year. Until then, you can satisfy your curiosity about this amazing group at the Coldplay website.

*According to Amazon.com and Chris Martin, the album will be released before the end of this year.
