Free Will (and other compulsions) is the second book in J. Daniel Sawyer’s Antithesis Progression series, which manages to combine science […]

One of the hallmarks of Nifty Tech is the fact that it takes work off of your hands. As a result, one very easily begins to take it for granted. The tech blends into the background, and instead you focus on just getting things done. This week I’m going to be looking at a piece […]

This is a review that I’ve planned to do for a long time. It seems like each time I get geared up to do this review, the manufacturer changes something about the product and sets me back to square one. Which means that I’m trying to do a review of a very good, unsung piece […]

Technical Difficulties.

by Doc Coleman - Nifty Tech Editor December 20, 2011 Announcements

We are sorry for the problems with the previous post “I’m bringing Nifty Back” giving a 404 error. We’re working on the problem, but WordPress doesn’t seem to be behaving properly at all.

I’m bringin’ Nifty Back.

by Doc Coleman - Nifty Tech Editor December 20, 2011 Announcements

This blog has been quiet for a while, but I wanted to assure folks that it hasn’t gone away. Scott and I have both had to take time away from Nifty Tech to pursue other projects. We had set a pretty steady pace, but with all the demands on our time we weren’t able to […]

I know things have been pretty quiet around here in the past few months. Things have been pretty chaotic for me this summer and The Nifty Tech Blog has pretty much taken the brunt of it. Scott has also had a tough time of it, with publishing a Young Adult novel and a collection of […]

EEE Pad Transformer

I’ve been wanting a tablet for a long, looonnnnng time. To tell you the truth, apart from the coolness factor, I couldn’t tell you why, but I was told to get whatever I wanted for my birthday. My Mom had planned on throwing me a big party, and that hadn’t materialized. So, she gave me […]

#FollowFriday – @Americas911: Honoring First Responders, their families, and the victims of the September 11th attack.

by Doc Coleman - Nifty Tech Editor August 19, 2011 Editorial

I am not a big one for politics. Really, I’m not. A lot of the time I see politics as the opportunity to choose a side between two incorrect answers to an irrelevant question. There are problems inherent in the system, and all the energy goes to choosing sides instead of actually attempting to solve […]
