Column: Music player skips tracks and how-to instructions
The instructions weren’t simple. They were as far away from simple as they could be. I had a cell phone now with three gigs of storage capability; why then shouldn’t I just move some music onto my phone, the better to listen to if I ever go on an airplane somewhere. That’s...

COLUMNIST: Baby pictures peering back in time
There are several pictures of my two granddaughters pasted inside the glass doors of my kitchen cabinets. They are now more or less one year old. Each time I go to fetch something from whatever cabinet, they are there peering out at me. Well, actually, they're peering at the camera,...
