Mann's Chinese Theater
Articles on TechFreep will be a bit spotty over the next week…because we’re moving out to Los Angeles.

That’s right folks, I’m making a cross country trek starting this Thursday and should end up in California the following Wednesday. I’ll try to write as many articles as I can in the meantime, especially this evening, tomorrow and on Wednesday. I doubt I’ll find any Wifi connections traveling along highway 40, however, so there shouldn’t be anything posted between Thursday and Wednesday of next week.

Sorry to put the site on hiatus like this, folks, but we’ll resume posting as usual on Thursday, November 16th. Thanks for the patience, and be sure to check back in the meantime for more TechFreep-y goodness.
