Why The Great Gas Stove Freak Out Is FLAMING OUT
The Biden Administration is planning to take away your gas stove from your cold, dead fingers. A headline that Fox News and other right-wing media had promoted for well over a week. But an interesting factoid came out since then.
The states with the most gas stoves are California and New York.
Hence, only wealthy liberals—A.K.A., foodies—can afford to buy and use gas stoves. Foodies aren’t your typical right-wing demographic. It wasn’t surprising that Fox News moved on to a different controversy.
Here’s why the great gas stove freak out is flaming out.Read more “Why The Great Gas Stove Freak Out Is FLAMING OUT”

Switching From T-Mobile to Mint Mobile to SAVE $$$
T-Mobile sent me a SIM card kit to switch from the Sprint network six weeks before they shut it down last year. Swapping the physical SIM cards in my iPhone XR took only five minutes to complete. I didn’t notice any difference between the two networks in Silicon Valley.
Three months ago, I swapped SIM cards again.
This time from the T-Mobile physical SIM card to the Mint Mobile virtual SIM card. Swapping between the two types of SIM cards took only five minutes. I didn’t notice any difference since Mint Mobile uses the T-Mobile network.
What I did notice was I’m paying $40 less per month for cellular service.Read more “Switching From T-Mobile to Mint Mobile to SAVE $$$”
Will Renfield Be Funnier Than Love At First Bite?
Universal Pictures released the trailer for “Renfield” that is coming out on April 14, 2023. Renfield, played by Nicholas Hoult, tries to escape the toxic relationship with his boss. We see flashbacks of incidents that suggest his boss might not be your typical psychotic boss.
When his boss announces himself at the door, he’s invited in and reveals himself to be Dracula, played by Nicholas Cage.
Most movie trailers I’ve seen over the years have been, “Meh… maybe.” I’m really looking forward to seeing this movie. But will “Renfield” be funnier than “Love at First Bite”?Read more “Will Renfield Be Funnier Than Love At First Bite?”
Will SiliCon With Adam Savage Change Venues in 2023?
The organizers for SiliCon with Adam Savage sent out a poll to past attendees last month. I found some of the questions about the dates and the location for the venue to be interesting. The show has been at the San Jose Convention Center in late August since 2019. The poll asked questions about dates in late October and the Santa Clara Convention Center.
