Welcome!

Welcome to StevenSokulski.com. As I now have both a MySpace account and a Facebook account I have decided that it is high time for me to unify my bloggings in one space. Thus the domain StevenSokulski.com will actually serve a purpose, providing that unifying space. Stay tuned for the thoughts, theories, and tinkerings of someone who isn't trying to see things too differently, but can't help it sometimes.

Sons of Anarchy - Season 4, Episode 3 Song

Season 4 Episode 3 (S04E03) of Sons of Anarchy is a killer episode. Lots of conflict being setup for the rest of this season and beyond.

One of the highlights is the closing of the episode, which plays out against the song All of This Could Have Been Yours by Shooter Jennings & Hierophant (iTunes).

Great song, great ending.

iPad Screenshot Orientation Bug

My iPad 3G is still relatively new. Though the "ohmagod...soshiny" honeymoon phase has ended, I still absolutely love the thing. I picked one up on opening day and was out of the store by 5:05 with the device in hand.

I've had good intentions of writing down my first impressions on Apple's so-called magical new device, but the time has not made itself apparent yet. That said, I wanted to take a few moments to jot down some thoughts on a bug I discovered within the first 24 hours of owning an iPad.

Michael Buble: Missing the 140 Character Boat

While I hate to return from such a long blogging hiatus with what is something of a negative post, this has struck me as something that needs to be talked about. And since it just now irked me once again, I'm going to talk about it right now.

Twitter is an excellent opportunity for real celebrities (and those that we as humans have given celebrity status to for no apparent reason) to strike a bond with their fans. It allows multi-million-dollar corporations to appear accessible and real to their customers. Twitter is a great thing.

CityCenter: A First Look

Apologies for the low quality of the photos seen below. All I had with me that night was an iPhone.

CityCenter, the multiple-hotel, condo, casino, and shopping center, is far from finished. Large walls adorned with "Coming February 2010" are the landmark of the newly-revealed Crystals shopping district, construction cones line the large driveways that lead in and out of the mini-city, and there is no self-parking available to non-hotel guests at this time. But, seeing as the much-anticipated opening had occurred just a few nights prior, I decided to stop in for a visit.

iPhone Wish List: Editable Autocomplete

When Apple announced their much-lauded iPhone, the lack of a physical keyboard was a common topic on the keyboards of tech bloggers the world over. The cupertino-based consumer electronics firm, having that same day dropped the word "Computers" from their name to become Apple, Inc., reassured fans and hopefuls that several advancements had been made to make the touch-based keyboard as easy to use as a physical set of keys.
