Maurie’s journey: Maurie Begins Her Experience  In Stargardt  Stem Cell Trial

High Contrast’s Maurie Hill has started on a path to explore options in vision restoration that many may have read about. She bravely tells her story with us on the podcast and has offered to provide us with updates as she continues her journey.

DISCLAIMER:  Maurie is a stockholder in Advanced Cell Technology (ACT), sponsor of this trial. Also, Maurie notes, “ I’m not a doctor or scientist, but I’ll answer questions as best I can.”

App Review: You Don’t Know Jack For iOS

Note: This app is being updated and will be back on the iTunes store soon!

Remember that wacky trivia game with the odd pop culture jokes mixed in with really strange questions about history, math and the human body in a game show like format for the PC and mac circa mid 90’s? No? Well, if you do, the gang at jellyvision has rebooted “You Don’t Know Jack” for a whole new age. The humor is still slightly off, the questions are still nerve-racking but the game hasn’t lost a step from what you played years ago. Joe checks out the game for iPad and he mentions the good and the bad in his review.
