We made it. Winter is finished. Not that it was a particularly bad winter, it’s just nice to be done. Now it’s onto warm temperatures, sunny skies and patio beers! Oh, and I’ve also got a few new device recommendations but none of them are as exciting as patio beers. Not much is, actually. Hmm… Come to think of it, I should have written this article from a patio. Lesson learned. Next time I’ll make better choices.

If you can believe it, I’m actually recommending a second place to purchase computers from. It’s Dell. I’ve bought 3 computers from Dell recently and I’ve very happy with them. No longer does Dell put a bunch of crapware on their machines. These things are great. Navigating their site, however, is not so great. There’s way too many options. But that’s why I’m here.
