I’ve been quietly working on something new in my spare time and now I’m ready to start talking about it. RadResume. It’s an app for iPhone and iPads that is being designed to allow anyone to quickly and easily create beautiful, elegant and effective resumes.

The main impetus for this is two-fold: 1) For years I’ve wanted to put my varied skill-set of design, software UX/UI design, and online marketing to use in an app project like this. 2) A while back I was hiring for a position with one of my older projects and discovered that out of the 150 or so resumes that I received, they were all terrible from a design / standing out point of view. I started to research the market and discovered what I believe is a gap that can be filled with an app like this.

Stay tuned for more details.

This past weekend Michelle and I attended the wedding of some close friends in Harrison Hot Springs. Here’s a few of my favourite snaps I took from the event. Congrats Sam & Jenna.

 

I happen to be writing this on the very first Mac I’ve had the pleasure of owning. No, I wasn’t one of the passionate minority that used Mac products well before the current decade+ wave of Apple product popularity took root around the world. In May 2009 I bought a 15 inch, Late 2008 MacBook Pro – the 2.66Ghz Intel Core 2 duo version with 4 GB of RAM.

A few things made the jump to a Mac and away from Windows PC’s / laptops possible:

  1. I had had multiple iPod’s and loved every single one.
  2. I was one of the lucky few Canadians who managed to go across the border a couple of months after the iPhone’s launch in the summer of 2007, jailbreak it and for a while, I and my other few Canadian techie brethern were the goddamn life of the party anytime we’d bust that thing out. The first iPhone (having owned Palm Pilots and Compaq iPaqs) was the most incredible computing device I had ever owned by a country mile. The oft-described halo effect had its way with me.
  3. I was so sick of Windows, and more importantly shitty PC laptops that would fall apart 18 months in and be really terrible at anything and everything demanding an ounce of portability or power, I was more than happy to try something new.
  4. A good friend and new girlfriend sung the Mac’s and Apple’s praises, and well, who can resist the charms of a new girl in your life?

So here I am, 50 months in with my trusty MacBook Pro. The main things that strike me 50 months in:

  1. This past January, I stuck an extra 4GB or RAM, bringing me up to 8 total and that made a nice difference, but sticking an SSD in there has made this feel like a completely new computer. I can anticipate this being my main machine for probably another 12-18 months.
  2. The build quality of this, at this age, is unlike any other technology product I’ve owned before. It’s simply a tank. I’ve dropped this thing (it has a tiny dent) countless times. Bumped it, spilled drinks on it, basically abused it for well over 4 years and with the exception of some minor scuffing and scratches, it’s still incredibly beautiful and feels almost as solid as the day I bought it.
  3. What four year old laptop can you bring into a coffee shop amidst all the latest and greatest and not feel like you’re pulling out some sort of stone tablet? A MacBook Pro, that’s what. It might not be the thinnest or lightest or fastest anymore, but it’s still beautiful.
  4. It continues to amaze me that after all these years, so many of the PC manufacturers (all well on their way to some level of extinction or severe downsizing) still don’t get the simple idea of build quality.

Hooooo boy…

It’s been a while since I’ve updated this presence on the web. While I hope to continue to post random musings on here about my life as an entrepreneur, I think this site will turn a little more personal as I start to hopefully blog about technology, design and other things somewhere else. In the meantime, I wanted to blog about my experience with my first Mac which you should scroll up for as it will be the next post.
