How have you been? I've been focusing on schoolwork.
On topic, I thought I'd provide a quarterly update since I'm not as active here as I once was. In the realm of tech, I got myself a HTC Windows Phone 8X in December and have fallen back in love with Windows Phone all over again, thus where the Instagram for Windows Phone
concept came from. It really is a wonderful platform that everyone should give a once over, though any in-store device doesn't really communicate its strengths that well.
On the Windows 8 side, I'm running a desktop with it full-time, though the amount of time I spend in the new experience is limited to one app: <a href=apps.microsoft.com/windows/en-…
">Netflix. I on-and-off will use the new Twitter for Windows 8 client
, though I keep going back to the desktop version of MetroTwit. It's something where a touch screen would really make it worth while, but I don't have one.
Moving along, I've also made a number of posts on my own blog pertaining to Windows Phone, Windows, and cable news:Lets Fix it with BlueThe Compassionate News Network?So, It's Surface ...

In all, it's been a pretty good number of months as Seattle starts to shift into spring. See you all again in a couple months, maybe with some new work posted here before I do another round-up post like this.
