Well it’s finally here the much awaited release and my review of Quicken Essentials for Mac.  Okay maybe not everyone was waiting for my review but it’s nice that it’s finally out I think you can agree.  There’s a definite drought in the Mac world as far as personal finance software is concerned. The good news is that the field is widening as the You Need a Budget 3.0 is in full swing which will run on PC and Mac.  I was anxious to see how this Mac specific version stacked up to YNAB and also to Quicken 2010 for the PC which I recently reviewed.  So grab a cup of coffee and let’s ...

Even Geeks Need Rest Too
1. Leave work at work: so often when we come home, we are frustrated after a bad encounter with a boss, supervisor or just another co-worker. The important thing to realize is we have to let these awful situations and circumstances stay at the work place to circumvent these daily frustrations from being taken out on the ones we love: our spouses, children, family and friends. This process should start in the car ride home. Try thinking of serenity. Put your feet on the gas and crank up the tunes. The last thing you need to do is enter your home pondering the hustle and bustle of the next day. Use these hours at home to wind ... market research, surveys and trends
It Lives, Igor!
The job of writing a technical article lands on my to-do list every so often. Between occurrences, I manage to forget about the need to do these so that each time a new one pops up it comes as the same surprise: a mix of anticipation at the chance to do some writing and worry about where the time to do it will come from. Anyway, in order to bolster my usual mix of weak reasoning and doubtful conclusions with some half-baked evidence, I turned to Google. In the recesses of my memory I seemed to recall that someone had once combined a PC and a Sega Megadrive[1] in one unit; a spectacular example of the misplaced faith that will ... market research, surveys and trends

Dana Epp's ramblings at the Sanctuary: November 2003 Archives
about the possibility that Apple might be coming out with a Tablet PC. That could be very interesting... if Apple can make it as slick as the Inking API that Microsoft has. On that note though... I am not sure how well the whole Tablet idea will work out. Scoble has always drank the MS Tablet Koolaid and spews a lot about it... but I can say first hand after spending a week with him, that it is unrealistic to tout the Tablet as an end all solution. Why do I say that? Because during the whole week I was with him, he didn't use his TabletPC once while I was around. Hell, it wouldn't even boot up when I tried it in his ... industry trends, business articles and survey research
Will you outlive your retirement savings?
An article appeared on Bloomberg last week that sounded the alarm on the very real prospect that millions of people will outlive their retirement savings. Lawmakers Seek to Prevent Americans Outliving Savings (Bloomberg, June 11, 2010) had this to say: “In 1983, 62 percent of workers had only company-funded pensions, while 12 percent had 401(k)s, the center said. In 2007, those numbers were 17 percent and 63 percent, respectively”¦ Most American households at or near retirement “are consumed by fear,” said Anthony Webb, associate director of research at the research nonprofit. “Instead of walking ... industry trends, business articles and survey research

Apple iPad: Breaking through in the enterprise
Like most analysts and observers, we were both a surprised at how quickly the iPad was hitting critical mass, but not surprised that people were responding well to the device itself. After all, we’d both traveled to the conference with an iPad in tow. Jeremy brought his iPad in place of a laptop and used it as his primary computing device throughout the trip. I brought my iPad in addition to my laptop and used it during my flight to New York to prepare my notes for the panel that I moderated at the event. As we talked about the iPad’s big sales numbers, I told Jeremy that I was skeptical about whether the ... market trends, news research and surveys resources
Hyatt's new Andaz opens in New York City's Midtown
Hyatt on Monday opened its second, chic Andaz hotel in New York City, marking the 5th location for a fledgling, luxury boutique brand that's managed to grow during the hotel industry's toughest time in modern history. I traveled to New York on Tuesday to tour the hotel on its first full day of operating, so here are a few photographs and observations... The hotel, by the way, is part of a mini-hotel-boom going on in the city , which my colleague Kitty Yancey Bean chronicles on USA TODAY's Dispatches blog. In future posts, I'll tell you about other elements that make the hotel pioneering for New York and for ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

Anime for geeks only? - Yahoo! Answers
Earleir on in the year, an Anime/Manga club was set up at my school. I saw the presentation for it, and recognized the drawing cartoon style from pokemon- the show everyone watched when younger :D So I got my friends to come with me at lunch to see how it was. Honestly, I was totally surprised. I'm not naive enough to believe that only nerds like anime, but seriously! I'm not the most popular girl, but I have a normal girl status- like friends with everyone(bah lol)! That club was full to the BRIM with snorting geeks who drew amazing! manga, and were basically a stereotypes dream: glasses, bad skin, yellow ...
