I'm off to recharge my batteries for a week and see just how much sun this Irish-descended body can handle. Because I'm not the type who can unplug easily, I'll be doing this in an area that has no good Internet coverage, so posting will be light in Technotainment this week. Andygriffith

Look for a couple of features and product reviews – things that I've been meaning to do more of, but the steady flow of news this year has kept my focus elsewhere. And, should some major news breaks during the week, David Cohen will likely jump in with one of his tremendous live chats.

Thanks, as always, for reading and posting your thoughts in the comments. See you in a week.
