Beer Cloud vs. The Fuddy Duddy

It took me a while to warm to the idea of putting a blog up on the internet. Now don’t get me wrong, writing the blog is a blast now for me – but the truth is, I can be a techno fuddy duddy. I have been known to hang on for dear life to my “old ways” of doing things even as the newest technologies scream toward us with the speed of a T1 connection – that’s still fairly new – right?

So putting up thebeerroad.com has been a big step forward for me, but there’s one tech area that I’m still resisting as long as I can. As others around me use their cell to keep them organized, find out where they are and where they’re going, download and read novels, stream music, play games, buy tickets to events, and otherwise just remain on the “cool” side of the technology bar, my phone, I will tell you, does everything I need it to do – darn it – which is just make and answer calls. But if I said sometimes it’s the app and not the phone, you would know what I mean, right? Every day new software applications for cell phones come out, some useful and some maybe not, but some are just too slick to resist. And although one in particular has been out for several months, I saw it in action recently for the first time. And yes, it may be enough to push me over the technology edge, and maybe help me lose my technology fuddy duddy label. Come on, you knew it would have to do with finding and learning about good beer, right? If you haven’t seen it yet for yourself, I now give you….BeerCloud.

This demo is for the iPhone, but I understand that all you Android users can get it now too.
