Weekly Roundup

UPDATE:  In case you missed it, Vladimir Putin recently wrote an op-ed for the New York Times in which he offers counsel to the United States.  Yesterday “President Obama” responded with his own op-ed for the Huffington Post.  *** Katelyn Beaty writes at Christianity Today about our...

Can Microsoft Play with the Tech Giants?

Spoiler alert: I think Microsoft is one of the tech giants. When characterizing the technology wars of our age, I suspect many of us come up with the right wars. We think PC vs. Mac for home computers, we think Google and Apple for smartphones (though Microsoft is coming up in this area rather nicely),...

Mirror Mirror: the iPhone 5 and Introspection

Well, Apple did it again. They’ve announced and detailed a phone that will come out within the next couple of weeks. The pattern is predictable, which is far from a bad thing in the usually-in-flux world of technology, but there is something underwhelming about a lack of surprise. It comes with...

Which walls do you prefer?

This past week or two I’ve had the fun of playing with my new Google Nexus 7 tablet. I can now read all of my books and news feeds without having to either remain in bed or drag my laptop to the deck. What impressed me even more was how simple the setup process was, and the environment that was...

Microsoft’s Surface: The Tablet to Compete with the iPad

If you had eavesdropped on any of the conversations I’d had this last week about technology, it was probably about Microsoft’s future. With their unveiling of SmartGlass at E3, Windows 8′s Release Edition, and my general love of their Windows Phone platform, there was a lot to talk...

Microsoft vs. Apple: Things Just Got Interesting

Okay, I admit the title is a bit misleading: the ‘war’ between these two tech giants has been interesting for years. The developments over the last week, however, warrant some commentary. I’ve already argued that our mobile and desktop experiences would be converging, and it seems that...

The Bible Is the Seed, Not the Fruit

In Romans 10 we learn that the word of God is how people come to faith. God’s word is the seed that is sown and blossoms into faith in people’s lives, but what comes out of a seed is overwhelmingly stuff-that-is-not-more-seeds. There are the roots, trunk, and branches of a tree; then there...

Windows Phone 7: Why I Left My iPhone

I seem to still be finding my niche for blogging here at Evangelical Outpost. I’ve become the local guru on hip-hop, which doesn’t surprise me too much. Looking through my history, the only other topic I’ve written enough about to warrant a conclusion about my interests would be technology.

Grooveshark, Free Music, and the Future of the Music Industry

That title may be a bit much. More specifically, the title may sound like it is speaking to a lot of things, but I think it may actually all be one thing. With the recent lawsuits against Grooveshark by all of the major music labels, the folks over at Gizmodo sat down with the CEO of the little company,...

The Next iPhone: On the Love of Technology

In case it isn’t already clear, I’m definitely a fan of technology. In fact, I probably read about technology more than I read about most other things, with the exception of philosophy (since I am a graduate philosophy student). Later today, Apple will announce it’s next iPhone–whether...
