On Wednesday, April 16th, my mother passed away. My brother and I were at her side. We knew that this day was coming and were as prepared as could be (which is to say not much). On the positive side, she died at peace and without any pain.
My intent is to keep Gadgetorama focused on gadget news so this is about as much as I will say about this.
The next few days will be busy to make all the final arrangements for my mother. Only then do I expect to resume regular news coverage here. News will likely be sporadic at best for the next week or so and then I hope to get things back on track.
Thanks for your patience!
