End of the Week

So I've been doing quite a lot of backend system cleanup on my Mac.  When one does an upgrade there are bound to be things that don't work quite right. 

I've had the Console open for the last few days and I've been chasing down error messages in the log files and fixing as much stuff as I can.  So far I haven't broken anything... I guess that's good.

In the meantime, out in the real world there have been some interesting developments.

****

Like over in Germany where Babette hit "Reply All" and brought the German Parliament email system to a halt. Nice little Denial of Service.

****

Facebook is planning an IPO.  Can't wait to see what happens once they have to start disclosing information about themselves instead of us.

****

Supposedly there is going to be a Twitter boycott.  I'm trying to figure out how they'll do it without using twitter to communicate about the boycott...

****

Face it - there is no such thing as "privacy" out there anymore.  Privacy on the net is an illusion.  I've seen people who wouldn't touch Facebook ever, turn around an use Google for all their stuff.  Someone tell me what the difference is because I must be missing something.

****

So there you go. Have a great weekend!  You are now up to date on almost nothing.

A Couple of Random Thoughts

There are a couple of headlines on the Mac Rumors site I just couldn't pass up.

Apple Retail Stores Coming to India?

Will they have American help desk people serving them? 

****

'Absinthe A5' Brings First Untethered Jailbreak for iPhone 4S and iPad 2

What will your device remember afterward?

Have a great weekend!

Awesomeness

Looks like yesterday's animated GIF from The Oatmeal has garnered him far more attention than he ever thought possible.  Really cool indeed!  Go read the post protest fun.

The Internet... Clinging to Life by a Thread

Before the SOPA and PIPA bills shut down the internet for good... hurry up and check this out.

Monumental Paper Architecture

or these

Incredible Photographs of Jellyfish

Cool stuff.  I found these on Flipboard for iPad which is really quite amazing.  They find some of the most awesome photos.  Of course this brings home to me exactly how uninspired my own forays into photography have been.  Oh well. 

So, go read them now before you can't any more.  Soon apps like flipboard, not to mention social networking of every kind, may be shut down with a single complaint.  What a sucky way for such a tremendous thing like the internet to slowly lurch to a halt. *sigh*

Are We Past the Holidays?

I think all the Christmas commercials are finally finished. I've never understood why car companies play them into the ground through the beginning of January... we're already sick of them by November 1.  No it won't make me buy someone a car for Christmas. Geeze.

****

Heard that some girl bungee jumped and the chord broke. Someone explain to me why one jumps off a perfectly good bridge.

****

The sports world is in meltdown because Tim Tebow played a competent game and has moved his team along in the finals. Here's a tip for everyone who is having issues with this... stop listening to sports talk while this is going on. If you don't listen you don't have to hear Tim talk about his religion. I'm pretty sure the Patriots will take out Denver this coming weekend. We'll see.

****

Headline of the day:

Extinct Giant Tortoise May Still Be Alive in Galapagos

Ummm... so is it extinct or alive... it can't be both.  They need a new headline writer. Let me do the job an editor should have done:

Galapagos Giant Tortoise May Not Be Extinct

How's that?

****

Last of all, if you exercise, please pay attention to what your body is telling you.  Although they specifically pick on yoga this time, this could be any type of exercise.  Unless you are an Olympic athlete, it's not a contest... really it's not.  So stop trying to outdo everyone around you and pay attention.

****

Okay that's it for now.

My Current Favorite Commercial

I'm not sure if they play these commercials other than during hockey games.  So if you aren't a hockey fan, you might not have seen Tim Thomas in his acting debut trying to get "Peggy" to help him with his credit card.



It cracks me up because it's so very Boston.  The cabbie is played by a local DJ Alicia Love, here's a bit about her

If we have to watch commercials about 1000 times per event, at least they should make us laugh.
