I was quoted in this St. Paul Pioneer Press story about Google+ and the overwhelming nature of so many social media sites: Social media overload? You’re not alone. How experts manage
Greg Swan, who works in public relations and Internet marketing, said he thinks people will learn to cope with the vast array of social-network choices.
“We humans adapted to balance hundreds of television channels, overloaded email inboxes, full social calendars and six lanes of freeway traffic. I would hope no one will lose sleep over fitting Google+ into their social portfolio.”

I’m quoted in this Pioneer Press story today, talking about iPods and my issues with FM transmitters.
I still don’t see why Apple doesn’t take the FM tuning technology and build it into their iPod. Look for the next iPod to receive and transmit FM signals.
