  • My next camcorder

    So I have had a Canon DV camcorder for almost 7 years now. I have been tempted a few times to upgrade, but Sony may have finally come up the one that has the two features I am looking for: HD and HD ;-). There is no way I would upgrade to a camera that…

  • Smash-em up

    A few of us from work made our way to the Kenton County Fair last night to see the demolition derby.  Nothing better than seeing a bunch of grown men and women crash in to each other in beater cars from the 70s and 80s.  There were a total of 5 rounds and the ultimate…

    …I bought an X-BOX 360 over the weekend. Just couldn’t resist anymore. Was in Best Buy over the weekend and saw a few premiums just sitting on the shelf. Only have one game, Project Gotham Racing, but so far it is definitely a step up from my PS2. It’s so good it’s making me want…

  • The Manufacturer.com – The illusion of openness

    The Manufacturer.com – The illusion of openness Interesting article from one of my favorite pubs out of the UK on manufacturing.  We have been talking about an SOA strategy at UGS for over 5 years.  In some ways it was forced upon us rather than a grand vision because of the needs we had to…

    General Motors getting vehicles to market faster – Autoblog This is good news for one of our biggest and oldest customers, GM. It seems that they have at least solved the TTM problem, which had been an issue for many years. Now if they could just get more “inspired” designs like the Sky and Solstice…
