Starbucks Karma…

So I walk into Starbucks this morning to order my usual  fuel. What struck me was the higher than normal amount of people sitting around acting productive on their internet devices of choice. It’s a typical day at my favorite coffee house. Here’s a company…

You may have heard the ranting over the past few months over the use of the Uber app and how it’s been taking money out of the hands of Taxi drivers all over the city. Have no fear cabbies! Hailo should be live soon to…

Hey Appleheads….Relax!

Air Force One?

Air Force One?

Listen, I don’t pretend to know every protocol for FAA communications or the security of our commander in chief. I have always been fascinated by flight and I’m scheduled to take my own flying lessons soon. But wouldn’t you think all communications between Air Force…
