Apple:AOL::AOL:CompuServe

Apple:AOL::AOL:CompuServe

What the hell? Another click-bait headline for an article filled with Apple-bashing garbage, designed to bring the masses in with their teeming, steaming fingers commenting away? Not really. It’s actually a complimentary comparison (though for the very reasons it is, many of the likely readers of this article will be offended). So I sit down […]

Musings on Employment, #1

Musings on Employment, #1

So I find myself looking for work in what is claimed to be the recovery time of the worst recession since the Great Depression (although Nevada is still at record unemployment – 13.7% at last report), and some thoughts come to me.

The time at Bright Systems has been great experience. As things change, though, so must priorities and positions. What comes next? Unknown, but every job brings new learning, new skills, and new perspectives.

Apple is evil. Film at 11.

Apple is evil. Film at 11.

Just as “film at 11” is an anachronism in every sense (there is no film these days, most news is obtained at times other than 11pm), “Apple is evil” falls squarely into the same category. Yet, click-bait ├╝ber alles, and we still have the mindset that everything Apple does has to either be benevolent graciousness […]

So, is AT&T holding back?

So, is AT&T holding back?

No surprise that AT&T is weaseling as much as possible regarding network infrastructure expenditures and so forth, but what if it’s even worse? What if AT&T really is making all the infrastructure improvements they say, but those improvements simply aren’t “turned on” yet? The “whatever Apple is going to announce” is going to add a […]

You Can Keep The Dime (1994)

The dust mound grew with each sweep. Peter moved through the room, sweeping from end to end, making his way from one side to the other, moving the dust into a long mound on one side of the room.
