    There is a very interesting theory about why IBM shed their vaunted ThinkPad & PC hardware division to China’s Lenovo.

  • Tahoe

    We went up to Tahoe last weekend to catch some of the record snows that have fallen on the Sierras over the past few weeks. Our digital camera’s battery ran out of juice so I only have this shot of a tricked out Mustang that we saw on the road but Doug Yarrington posted more […]
