Slow tech updates

Seems like we've hit a stopping point in tech... went shopping looking for new stuff.
Gigabit Ethernet is the top still
I got an 8 port gigabit switch about six years ago.  My core2duo laptop is 5 years old, it was just shy of $2k when I got it, even though new laptops are $300, I'd still have to spend $1000-$1500 to get a suitable replacement.  Speakers aren't much better, and seem like poorer build quality, even the thousand dollar speakers are disappointing compared to stuff from the 90s. xbox, ps3 and wii have been around for years now.  Once the consuls switch to disk they got worse, I won't get a new one till they have them with SSD from the factory or something newer.  Sure I could install my own SSD, but I shouldn't have to. Moore's law still applies, but I think were at a holding point, with millions unemployed, we need to spend this time getting everyone caught up, we are only as good as our weakest link, and right now there are many weak links that need to be strengthened.  What happened to all that cool stuff we keep hearing about in popular science, wired, gizmodo, Reddit and so on.  All vaporware..  in my spare time I'll be working on a web app that should help a lot of people,  can't wait to have a working beta to share.  I'm writing from my galaxy nexus, sorry bout the poor writing... hope to have the nexus 4 soon, it does seem like cell phones are the only thing rapidly advancing, but even that seems like those rapid advances will come to an end soon,  let's hope not.

just finished a cup of Coffee ;) and getting my day started.  I'm in Las Vegas, checking out every hotel, and networking with all kinds of people. I might take a nap before I go. Need to visit a little meeting spot, I'll be doing some online work from there, then In n Out burger for lunch.

Need to work on my main project which is a new webapp.  I'll be posting a job  on dice or elance, I'll be checking reddit for some advice before posting though... maybe I can figure out something and get the page put up before then.

I was thinking of making some mesh box, found out about a new tranciver that is one chip for every frequency, forgot who makes it though.  need to work on a maker bot too...

Need to set up some bitcoin trades.

Need to post some CL ads
