Facing North

New Office
Calvin's New Digs

We moved offices a couple of weeks ago and for the first time I have an office on the north side of building H at Novell. Building H at Novell's Provo UT campus runs east to west and the offices along the south side get the sun beating in them all day.

Another plug for some openings we have on the accessibility team. We are looking for a Project Manager, a couple of QA Engineers, and some packaging/build engineers. Check out the openings here. Contact me if you are interested!

We still have openings so please contact me if you are interested. Cambridge is always a fun and productive visit and there seems to be an air of creativity in the people and surroundings that is infectious and inspiring. A large part of the team will be located here so I look forward to visiting more often.

Nat was also in town and we spent some time talking about Barack Obama (and Nat's fundraising campaign). I haven't made up my mind yet who I'll be voting for, but I know I do not want Clinton in office so I contributed.

Wake Up Alarms (part 2)

Back in January of 2013 I wrote about wakeup alarms and compared the difference between Android and iOS.  That was back on an iPhone 5 and a...
