Trade Show Fever

Thursday, January 24th, 2008

No, I’m not talking about those people who love to go to trade shows and can’t wait for the next one to start. I’m talking about how I just came back from Macworld Expo and nearly everyone I know who was at the show is now quite ill. One associate is even in the hospital […]

Thankfully, Michael Johnston of pointed us in the right direction and got Bryan set up with a WiFi-to-iPhone bridge that will hopefully allow him to post easily.
