Hands on with the Nook Tablet

Barnes & Noble released the Nook Tablet back in November and it's caused more than a bit of a stir in the "budget" Android tablet market.

Does it live up to the hype? I like mine, but there are some severe limitations to the machine.

Introducing Wikipedia Brown!

Yes, it's a sad thing -- The Natural State Hawg is looking a bit abandoned these days, isn't it?

Well there's a reason for that -- the bulk of my attention has been focused on since April 2010. Why? That's more of a news site than this one is and, hey, I actually make a few bucks with that one.

Besides, there's something to be said for owning your own server space and installing WordPress on it. Ah, the joy.

At any rate, one of the things we've focused on at the aforementioned site has to do with original projects. For the absolute latest project, click here to listen to Wikipedia Brown, an original bit of modern audio theater featuring some actors from the Royal Theater here in scenic Benton, Ark. Fun stuff. We hope.Maybe....

Firefox 4 -- a nice improvement

The new Firefox 4 browser is out and it's well worth a look.

Mozilla did its homework on this one, tested the heck out of it and has put forth a browser that's good enough to not only gain on the dominant Microsoft Internet Explorer, but possibly halt gains in market share made by the aggressively marketed Google Chrome and Apple Safari browsers.

Want to read all about the new Firefox browser? Sure you do! Just click here and you're on your way.

OTR serials

Yes, The Hawg is an old time radio nut.

I love those old OTR programs -- can't get enough of the things. I was born well after those had been shoved out of the way to make way for television, but that doesn't matter one whit.

I've got another site -- First Arkansas News -- that's been keeping me busy for close to a year now. Rented my own server space. Installed Wordpress. Modified the heck out of a template to suit my needs. Fun stuff.

Speaking of fun, I just started a new section over there -- click here to check out the OTR serials on it. We're talking about great stuff -- Superman, Lum and Abner, Little Orphan Annie, One Man's Family and Flash Gordon. The page will be updated often and more programs will be added regularly. Check it out and submit a request while you're over there, huh?
