Blog el swordo > Military Worship

Posted 08 August 2014

I went to a soccer game last week. Yes I said soccer get over it. Anyway before the game the paraded out a few soldiers and had them have a shot on goal. Of course they got a standing ovation. It seems like they do this same thing at other sporting events and the reaction is almost always the same. Now my question is why do we blindly respect anybod...

Blog el swordo > How much does smartphone battery life matter to you?

Posted 06 January 2014

I love my smartphone and I love nexus 7 but, I still have a dedicated mp3 player and my trusty old kindle lying around. The mp3 player is so tiny and weight next to nothing. On top of that it has physical buttons and doesn't have anything running in the background that could interrupt my music experience. The kindle is great if you plan on doing more...
