Mulled Beer

I just tried my first mulled beer: BFM La Dragonne.  While the weather is not quite appropriate yet, it is just beginning to get cool here in Atlanta.  I heated it to about 55 degrees C and enjoyed it in a wine glass, though perhaps a tumbler would have been better.  Also while the beer is labeled at 7%, someone scratched it out and wrote 4% by hand.  Not sure what that’s about.  I’m going to save a bottle for Thanksgiving and enjoy it again with family, when the weather is more appropriate.  Christmas might be a better choice, but I don’t have that kind of patience.

This week I came across two very appealing technologies from completely unexpected sources. Granted, these aren’t new, but I think they pose interesting challenges to the reigning awesome sauce (Mac OSX, iOS, Android).

Actual innovation in the operating system space from Microsoft? Windows 8 looks like it could be a real challenger.

And the Nokia N9. Just when I had written Nokia off for good, they produce a phone that looks like it’s actually worth looking twice at.
