Imagine my happiness this morning as I awoke to this big, beautiful screen glowing at me….”You have a new update”. Seriously Apple…this has GOT to be the one that provides copy/paste functionality…surely…you wouldn’t let it go on this long would you?
Yes….yes they would. No such luck in this update. I’ll play around with it through out the day and report back later.
Yeah, so…last night, I’m driving to the Metallica concert. I’m coming up on 270 when all of the sudden, I see a man running from his car that had a small fire coming out from under the hood. So I quickly make my way to the side of the road. I’m no hero, but I wanted to make sure he didn’t need help in case someone was still in the car…no one was. I waited around until the firetrucks were there and then took off…but not before I got a picture. This was after the big blazing had subdued…it was pretty cool though.
Word on the street is…Apple wants to get into the search engine game. This shouldn’t really surprise anyone given that since the Job Era began, Steve has been pushing for newer ground breaking technology by reinventing the proverbial wheel every single year. And they’ve done it. The iPhone is the perfect example. Anyone remember the Apple Newton? Yes, the Newton failed miserably, but given the spice of Job, the newly created iPhone plunging into the smartphone industry completely wiped out everything else. In fact, Q3 2008 showed the iPhone 3G as the most popular phone out of all of them; which ended the 12 quarter record that the Motorola Razr set.
The rumor goes that Apple has not hired any new search engine developers recently (and you gotta have those); but since Android is now a competitor with the iPhone and since Google is currently the Safari default for all Macs, it would only seem likely and reasonable that Apple wouldn’t want their competitor staining the epic beauty of the illustrious aluminum creations. Keep your ear to the ground though and stay-tuned for a new battle…to the death!!!
Ok people, here’s the deal…I’m not here to tell you who to vote for, or to explain the issues, or even try to decipher the candidates…but I am going to tell you that you need to vote. You have all heard the reasons why a million times and you don’t need me shoving propoganda down your throat, but given that I own this tiny little section of the internet, I’ll speak my opinion.
You have a freedom to vote; a freedom to have a part in the selection of our next Commander and Chief; you have the ability to play a role in history. There are others in this world that would kill for your spot in this country. So please, don’t waste the opportunity to express yourself and your opinions…please vote on November 4th.
