Space Needle

Of one thing I am confident; the Space Needle has been photographed significantly more than 8 times. Notwithstanding the ubiquity of it's image across the city (heck I can even buy Space Needle imprinted underwear) I felt drawn to take my shot and awesomize the heck out of it. Behold!

Kindle Fire as Secondary Laptop Monitor

There are plenty of times when I need additional real estate for my laptop: when I'm on a call using OCS and want to have the controls front and center; Amazon Cloud Player etc. Rather than hauling a monitor with me Ive been using the Air Display app for the Kindle Fire. It’s $9.99 and works over Wi-Fi ( both devices must be on the same network). You also need to download and app for your Mac or PC from the Air Display website here.  If you don't have a Fire you can use any Android device, iOS device, Windows computer, or Mac as your second monitor.
