Some paper to use in case you ever want to roll your own business cards.
I’m still waiting for the Livescribe pen to come down in size and price, but then I’ll be all about rolling my own notebooks with specially-printed Livescribe dot paper.
I’ve been considering starting a Plex server and am interested in the Drobo. Here’s a write-up from one of my favorite blogs:
Running the local Plex server on my Drobo 5N is also awesome. It took no time to turn it on and lets me connect to the Drobo direct from any of the Roku 3′s I use for my TV viewing. There are a number of other 3rd party plug-ins like this for the 5N. I’m really thrilled!
Once I had enough characters picked out to work with, I brought the art into Adobe Illustrator and began creating vector objects of each character. Many typographers would autotrace these, but I always create the objects point by point. The time invested is hours versus seconds, but the results are far superior.
Obviously, there are a lot of characters on your keyboard that don’t show up very often, or at all, in comic book lettering. But it’s important to me that a finished font contain these things—brackets, a plus sign, accents, etc. It’s a matter of craftsmanship and pride in the end product.
T-Mobile’s LTE miracle
T-Mobile has been boasting a lot about its 4G networks of late, and in truth it has a lot to brag about. The country’s smallest national carrier went from zero to nationwide LTE in just eight months, and in November it doubled the capacity of its network in at least 40 major cities.
T-Mobile’s 20MHz network is pretty much on par with AT&T’s network as well as Verizon’s first generation network. But because of T-Mobile’s small size, its fewer 4G customers have a lot more bandwidth to play with. The result is T-Mobile’s current customers are starting to see consistently higher speeds than the other carriers.
Consider me a happy convert to T-Mobile.
