Steve Jobs – 1955 – 2011

By , October 5, 2011 9:53 pm

Rest in Peace Steve. We will miss you.

Steve Jobs RIP 1955 - 2011
“No one wants to die. Even people who want to go to heaven don’t want to die to get there. And yet death is the destination we all share. No one has ever escaped it. And that is as it should be, because Death is very likely the single best invention of Life. It is Life’s change agent. It clears out the old to make way for the new. Right now the new is you, but someday not too long from now, you will gradually become the old and be cleared away. Sorry to be so dramatic, but it is quite true.
Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma — which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.” – Steve Jobs
“Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world are the ones who do.” – Steve Jobs
“Stay Hungry… Stay Foolish.” – Steve Jobs

Help for Haiti: Learn What You Can Do

Hulu to start charging in 2010

By , October 24, 2009 6:07 pm

News Corp. Deputy Chairman Chase Carey opened the B&C OnScreen summit, he talked about where he sees the business of online content going.

Carey said “It’s time to start getting paid for broadcast content online” and “I think a free model is a very difficult way to capture the value of our content. I think what we need to do is deliver that content to consumers in a way where they will appreciate the value,” Carey said. “Hulu concurs with that, it needs to evolve to have a meaningful subscription model as part of its business.”

I been using Hulu.com since it was in beta and I like it the way it is. If they want to start a subscription base service I don’t think they will get many takers. They would have to provide more content and allow downloads so I could play them on and iPod or iPhone. Oh yeah and NO commercials. With so many options like Amazon, Netflix and iTunes I don’t see a Hulu.com paid service working to well.

This is why I think Cloud computing is bad

By , October 11, 2009 4:43 pm

The T-Mobile Sidekick Disaster is why Cloud computing will never work. If you rely on Cloud computing and no local back up this will happen alot. Why would you only rely on that? I know its bad to say this but, if you don’t have a local back up of your data and someone else’s server crashes it’s your fault. Not the provider of the service. They should look at Dropbox. If you want your data any where you go Dropbox is the best answer.

US lab debuts super laser

By , May 30, 2009 8:49 pm

Breitbart.com posted an article about a “super laser” made by the National Ignition Facility. I think this is the first step to the Death Star. 

fusion reaction triggered by the super laser hitting hydrogen atoms will produce more energy than was required to prompt “ignition,” according to NIF director Edward Moses.

“This is the long-sought goal of ‘energy gain’ that has been the goal of fusion researchers for more than half a century,” Moses said.

“NIF’s success will be a scientific breakthrough of historic significance; the first demonstration of fusion ignition in a laboratory setting, duplicating on Earth the processes that power the stars.”
