We're generally about technology

Greetings Ya’ll!

Hello and welcome to my tech-blog, I have created this blog in order to share my passion for technology with others and to offer opinions and insights to our constantly changing tech world. First I would like to share a little about myself. I am a geek but I am a geek who would rather like technology to just work rather than have to tweak and monkey with it just to do basic stuff. Anywho my favorite part of technology right now is this exciting and emerging area of cloud computing, love it or hate it cloud computing is already here and is a trend that shows no signs of slowing down. I will explain in my next post the pros and cons of this concept. And that is how I will present most of my post because I am a computer/technology consultant, I don’t force my opinions of tech on others, I give them the pros and cons and educate people about technology and let them make there own decisions. If someone ask me my opinion on tech I will give it along with a logically sound reason as to why I like  or dislike something. e.g. I don’t tell people GNU/Linux is an awesome OS just because it’s Linux, believe it or not Linux isn’t good for everything. Which also brings up what I am a fan of in tech. I am not a fan of Microsoft or Linux or Mac or anything, I am a fan of what ever works in any one point in the space time continuum. For example if I am building a new PC and it comes time to choose an operating system, I need to ask my self what will work for this PC. If I am building it to play PC games well then I choose windows 7, I wouldn’t choose Ubuntu because even though it is a very good Linux distro, I don’t want to spend hours configuring wine or crossover in order to play a game I just paid $60 for, I want a system where I can just play my games. Also as a tech consultant I spend a good amount of time working with “normal” computer users, you know the ones who don’t know what a web browser is even though it’s pretty much the only app they use, the ones who when they run out of hard drive space start deleting system files just because they don’t recognize them, yeah those users. Anywho since I work with them I have a better idea on what they can and can’t do, what they want or need in a computer, etc. I have heard many reviews by geeks (technically inclined if you don’t like the “geek” term) on some new technology aimed at the average joe computer user and they bash is because it’s not what they would want. Well duh, of course it’s not what you would want it’s not aimed at you. I will be discussing come examples in upcoming posts. Well that’s all for now, I hope you’ll stick around and follow my blog.

See Ya,

Joshua Powers
