Sync shared Google calendars with your iPhone or CalDAV device

When you add your Google account to an iPhone or CalDAV enabled device by default you will only see events from your calendar. If you someone has shared a calendar with you there is no clear way to make it available on your phone. Google has a tool to enable shared calendars to synch however to push you toward the Google apps Google has not made it easy for anyone else. Lucky for us the tool is simple to get to and use. Simply follow this link and check the calendars you would like to sync to your phone.

Last days at Microsoft

This photo harkens back to late 2012 when I worked at Microsoft Open Technologies Inc. In the final days of my tenure there I had dismantled my workstation and dropped down to the MacBook Air and my trusty iPad 1st gen as an external monitor.

Pyramid of monitors

I ran across this photo while looking through some folders. This workstation is from 2013. Hard to believe that was 2 years ago!

Dual monitors at Drip City

Finally found the USB extension and I am now able to have dual monitors at coffee shops!

Today I tested this out at Drip City coffee and other that draining my battery faster (duh, powered off USB) it worked out perfect! Not a full replacement for my 6 monitor house setup but great for on the go and working from coffee shops.

The monitor is an AOC. It works fine but I would like to replace it with a couple Lenovos which are much higher quality, smaller form factor, and full HD.

Desk of years gone by

While roaming through some photos from back in the day I stumbled across a photo taken of my desk when I worked at Microsoft circa 2011. It is amazing to see how technology has changed even in the few intervening years.
