My Christmas Present to You: a blinking Christmas tree for your email signature!

Every year, I add a blinking Christmas Tree and “Merry Christmas!” to my email signature.  Consider it my way of sharing the joy of the Christmas spirit.  This year I decided to make that tree available to you and anyone who wants to use it.  It’s my gift to you.  Insert it into your email client and customize your own signature and help spread the Joy of the Christmas Spirit too!

Here’s the tree:

Google Launches Nexus Trio today

Today Google launched the Nexus 10 inch tablet, the Nexus 4 Phone, and and updated Nexus 7 tablet.

The 3 Nexus Devices

I was personally waiting for the Nexus 4 phone but right off the bat its lack of LTE speed is an immediate deal-killer for me and that’s a bummer because it looks like a nice phone.

The tablets are interesting though I’m not sure they are competitive with Apple’s iPads at “only” $100 less. Why would someone not spend the extra money on an iPad and get the most popular device with the most apps?

However, if you love Google (like I do) and not so enthused about Apple (while I do buy Apple hardware I run Google software on it), these are worth a closer look.

I do wish, though, that there was a Google Store I could go to and get hands-on with these devices.
