Alternative Energy source

Over the last few weeks Things in the world really been crazy specially with earthquake in Japan.

I have done an analysis of the Chevy volt looking to go truly electric and think this would save a lot of money in the long run. The Chevy volt is projected to go 40 miles on electric charge, but that number is reduced when running the heating system and electrical systems, true range is around 20 miles. I am considering the Ford hybrid Fusion as an alternative to the Chevy volt just because of the short range on the battery for the Volt.

Due to the nuclear problems in Japan, I also consider going solar to power my house. I am waiting for estimates to come in to install solar electrical system. I'm hoping this solar system is the wave of the future. We need to reduce our carbon footprint and implement new renewable energy sources.

I did use Dragon Dictation to complete this post which save me a little time. Happy spring!

My Favorite iPad applications

I have owned my iPad for three months and my favorite applications are:

  1. Flipboard which is a magazine style link to Google reader, Facebook,  Flipboard content (tech, photos, style), top men, digital, SI, USA, Car and drive and many more. I probably check out this application every day.
Friendly for Facebook quick way to check and update your status

Ipad notes - who needs paper?

Dragon dictation -- just got a new mic to help dictate notes, still testing and implementing into blog

CNN news

iPad task

The iPad is really convenient,  but can not replace a lap top. (Just saying!)

Lastly, I am testing my Logitech video camera which has some audio bugs I am trying to work out. Check me out on video.
