    DigitalHermit got a reaction from Askew in Cortana Commercial (Cortana vs Siri)

    Not true, you either have personality, or you do not
     
    That said you might become better in time at expressing it or finding ways of incorporating your personality in writing (a skill few posses)
     
    The best tech journalists generally try put some emotion into things, maybe they are super cynical, perhaps they are a bit of an arse, maybe they are humorous but each one has something to add to the article.
     
    Just writing words about a product are not enough, nobody wants to read a fact sheet. For a start it sounds like you are reporting, like you would read in a newspaper.
     
    Even something little like "Another product announced along with with the shield tablet is the new xbox shield controller", something like that just adds a little humour and shows that you are aware of other tech products, proving you are knowledgeable and humorous
     
    Example, one of my favourites is Alistair Dabbs who writes for the register, here is his review on the kindle fire http://www.theregister.co.uk/2012/11/08/review_amazon_kindle_fire_hd/
     
    this is one paragraph from the article that sums up what I was trying to say
     
    "Picture someone on a station platform waiting for a train, whipping out a mini tablet and then clumsily turning it in all directions, peering closely at each edge until he's found out how to switch it on. He might look like a dick but unfortunately that's what you'll look like too."

    DigitalHermit reacted to MyInnerFred in Are you an introvert or an extrovert?   
    Agreed, I like being small groups and being alone at times. Heck alone time is a must... but that doesn't mean I enjoy being a loner, I think its only natural for human beings to crave social interaction. 
     
    I'm shy too, however prior work experience in being a salesman has help make me a bit more outgoing. For me its a balance in a big group, I don't want to be totally ignored as if I wasn't there but I don't want too much attention either. If I have nothing to add to the conversation I keep quiet and that happens quite often.

    "When I got it I did have a little trouble booting it up, but it was fine once I gave it a little kick. Case looks amazing, probably the sole reason I got it. Runs very well, Capable of performing amazing computing feats, a step above other PC's. Laced with top of the range technology, it's a whopping size 2 (terrabytes). And best of all, I got two of them!"

    this is not really a retro computer, but still retro tech
    for those who don't know what this is, its an audio recorder and player with tapes
     
    its temporally assembled as one of the inner rubber belts broke after all these years. but i guess everything else still works

     
     
    these meters still work if i set the monitor to display the input signal (when i hook it in parallel with my speakers)

     
    edit: more things:
