My latest blog for AirPatrol: There’s a generational gap in the Internet and I might be on the wrong side of the canyon. Greetings from my “Grandpa Box.” If you're wondering if that’s a term for some sort of geriatric storage container, no, it’s not. It’s what my 23 year-old son calls my year-and-a-half old [...]
