Siri-ous Mistake

I need to make a public correction and an apology.

Earlier this week, I posted a blog titled, "Meet The 'Real' Siri." In it, I referenced a video originally posted on the tech blog theverge.com. The title of the video is, "How Siri Found Its Voice."

Skeeter Is Heard Worldwide!

Perhaps you've read some of my previous blog posts having to do with amateur radio.

Summerfest 2013 In Austin Aug. 2-3

Amateur radio enthusiasts from all over Texas (and beyond) will gather this weekend in Austin for the 30th annual Austin Summerfest at the Crowne Plaza. Amateur (aka "ham") radio is both a hobby and a service.

Amateur radio has also been proven time and time again to be a reliable means of emergency communications, "when all else fails."
