Do you still build stuff?
I did build stuff up until a point when I decided to hire a programmer for the major part of a universal remote control I was developing. These days I am very busy in the world trying to inspire young innovators and entrepreneurs and haven't the time for development. The last thing I did was a Segway key burner with my son so I could set my own speed limits. I would need a lot of reeducation to be at the same stage today. It's easier for me now to observe and have opinions and talk about technology to interested people.
Q: Steve in another Gizmodo article you mention how there are a few Gameboy Lights you carry in your traveling bag. What kind of games do you like to play?
A: I only play the original Gameboy Tetris. I buy cartridges on eBay when needed. I have had some stolen and lost. My kids got too good at newer games so I only focus on a few puzzle-like games to be good at them. I was always #1 in the Nintendo Power listings in 1988 and after they said my name had been in there too many times and wouldn't print it again, I spelled my name backwards (Evets Kainzow) and sent in a photo of my score. When I got the magazine I'd forgotten doing this and was worried that a foreigner from the next city over (I used Saratoga instead of Los Gatos so they wouldn't catch on) had a score up in my range. I got worried but then remembered my joke. Whew! It's in some old issue of Nintendo Power Magazine - Gameboy Tetris score, name Evets Kainzow).
If we increase that to 4 iPhones, no matter if you're carrying them for others, we're going to have trouble finding anyone that does that.
Am I the only one who read through the article specifically to look for neat gadgets I could buy?
