Utah Valley University designates special texting lane

No, this is not an Onion article. This is real life, and I am ashamed in all of you for contributing to this ridiculous storyline. But it’s so ridiculous that it’s laughable and therefore, it’s right up my alley of musings. Basically, Utah Valley University (Utah’s largest public university) has decided that its texting students are too slow to be in the general walking traffic and therefore must be herded like cattle into their own special texting lanes. Once again, I repeat, this is real life.

It may be a bold statement to say that Wahoo’s Tickr X heart rate monitor transmitter is the best I’ve ever tried in the past 15 years, but this is no ordinary workout strap.

The 15 best tweets about Netflix being down

Luckily for me, I had a Sixers game to watch last night so I didn’t even notice that NETFLIX WAS DOWN. By the time I got home last night, it was all ready for my bedtime ritual which consists of two episodes of Friends. IT SOOTHES ME, OKAY?!

If you’re in the Northeast, chances are you’re bracing for the blizzard of 2015, or her alias, Juno. Over here at Technology Tell, we’re staring out our office windows at the flurries of snow beginning to circle Philadelphia.

The five stages of CES 2015 withdrawal

My top five favorite moments of CES Press Day 2015

Admittedly, I’ve been super stressed out about CES 2015. I mean, there’s just so much to see and so little time to see it. And you know, Las Vegas has a habit of being distracting. HIT ME!

Thus, I feel like I’ve been taking advantage of all the fun “rites of passage” that CES Press Day 2015 can provide.
