I made a post awhile ago about how I had briefly tried, and then gave up on, the search engine Duck Duck Go. I am beginning to rethink that decision. Not so much because I’ve been using Duck Duck Go and been impressed with it, but instead, have started really wondering if Google is giving [...]

My wife, who was carrying around our 11 month old son, Maddox, at the time, said she was going to take him for a walk to keep him occupied. I nodded absentmindedly, already completely engrossed with the iPad. At some point (I can’t say when as I honestly lost track of time) she stopped by and asked how it was going and that I should have at least a few more minutes before our son got fussy. I said a quick “Ok!” and she disappeared again.
