Dentist

So I went to the dentists today for a deep cleaning. Let me start by saying that dentists are the devil. I’m convinced that they get joy out of causing their patients pain.

Self defense.

June 16, 2010 9 comments

So last Friday my roommates and I had our house broken into by a couple guys. They jumped my one roommate while my other roommate was in his room still. Well my roommate came out of his room and grabbed the one guy and beat him to the point you couldn’t recognize his face. The cops show up and take the report, but never arrested the guys who broke in. Now we’re getting threats because the one guy got beat up so bad. My opinion is if you break into someones house you deserve whatever you get out from it. What’s your opinion? Should my roommates have not done anything? What would you do if this happend to you?

Obama – Forgetting About America

January 6, 2010 Leave a comment

The sad thing about this song is that this song tells the truth. You realize that if McCain and Palin would have been elected we wouldn’t have senators buying off votes for the single biggest bill in the last 50 years. We might have some bribes for little bills that don’t realy affect anyone but the state that wants them, but it wouldn’t be on a bill that is going to ruin America for our kids and grand kids. Sure we need health care reform, but we don’t need the government controling the entire health care system. If the U.S. government wants to reform health care and loser cost for the American people then they need to just put stipulations on how much can be charged for health services. They need to cut down on malpractice lawsuits. They need to stop the drug companies from raising prices to where the average American can’t afford them. What we need is a government who helps American citizens not one who wants to control them. I’ve stated in my other articles how I feel about government control. We are suppose to be a free country, but at the same time the government dictates what we do everyday. Where is the man that ran for office who was supposed to bring change and listen to the American people?

Another thing! What ever happend to the redistribution of wealth? All Obama has done since he got into office is hand money out to the leaders of corporate America, and line their pockets even more. If a corporation can’t keep doing business the way they always have then they need to either fix the problem or go bankrupt. The tax payers money is not for saving some rich mans company from bankruptcy. If they can’t run their company then they need to step down or close down, and let someone who can handle doing what needs to be done. If GM and Chrysler would’ve went under then someone with fresh ideas and determination to produce something better would step up. I fully believe in America and it’s people that we have enough brilliant young people who will step up and create new companies which will create new jobs, and we don’t need the president giving away tax payers money to save companies that haven’t moved ahead with the times or are to greedy to take a pay cut in order to save their own jobs.

Nexus One

Have you heard of the nexus one?
It’s google’s new phone. Click the link below to get a 3D tour of it.

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif.–Forget about the Google Phone already: the Nexus One is merely a blip on Google’s long-term strategy for the rise of mobile computing.

One could be forgiven for assuming Google was about to knock over the smartphone market–two and a half years after Apple did just that–with one quick blow going into Tuesday’s Android event with a phone designed by Google and sold at retail by Google. After all, that’s what the Internet said would happen leading up to the event.

But what actually emerged from Building 43 on Tuesday is just another Android phone: a nice one, to be sure, but one featuring hardware designed completely by smartphone maker HTC and software features that will soon be available to other Android phones with advanced hardware, like the Droid. The real story is perhaps less sexy than a sleek iPhone killer that so many techies would love to see compete with Apple, but it’s a sign that Google CEO Eric Schmidt has learned his lessons about competition over a lifetime in the tech industry.

What Google is trying to do is gradually reel in Apple over a period of years by emphasizing open phones with open application stores sold through a variety of channels running an open-source operating system. And, for good measure, it’s also trying to do nothing less than reinvent the way mobile phones are sold in the U.S.

In order to do that, Google is going to have to do two things. It will need to show that consumers are willing to embrace a distribution channel for smartphones that is not controlled by wireless carriers, who will never give up their gatekeeper role over access and pricing of these phones if they are not forced to do so by customer demand. And it will have to continue to create compelling mobile software that serves as a check on the iPhone.

Google is certainly proud of the Nexus One. But it didn’t build the phone, which, in any event, is at best a modest improvement on the current generation of Android phones.

According to a source familiar with the process, the Nexus One was designed by employees of One & Co., a San Francisco design firm acquired in 2008 by HTC. Andy Rubin, vice president of engineering for Android at Google and leader of the project, later told GigaOm that “there are no hardware or industrial designers on my team.” Leading up to Tuesday’s event, widespread reports claimed that Google had designed the Nexus One by itself, and while the company may have specified hardware requirements to go with its software, that’s not the same as designing the phone.

So while Google is not making its own hardware, as Rubin maintained back in October, it will eventually be doing the second thing he claimed Google wasn’t doing that day: competing with companies it formerly considered customers.

With T-Mobile and Verizon on board for the Nexus One launch, all appears rosy between Google and those partners, who even though Android was a free product were essentially the end customers of that software up to this point. But make no mistake: Google’s ultimate goal is to create a business plan where top-notch Android phones are created by companies like Motorola and HTC and then sold through a virtual mall of sorts where carriers like T-Mobile and Verizon have to compete for your business.

Indeed, in the same report referenced above, Om Malik’s sources claim that behind the scenes, Motorola and Verizon are annoyed as they were expected to be leading up to the launch of the Nexus One. That’s because Google’s plans for the Nexus One and future Nexus One phones involve cutting out the heart of the smartphone market.

At the moment, the carriers cut three-way deals with the phone makers and operating system vendor to sell phones exclusively on their network, hoping to get the best phones on the market as to entice as many people as possible to sign up for two-year contracts with data service. What Google is proposing is a business model in which you pick a phone and then separately pick a carrier, all without having to leave your house.

In other words, it would be like buying a PC. Comcast doesn’t have an exclusive deal with Dell where if you want one of their PCs, you have to get it from Comcast and lock yourself into a two-year cable modem package. It means wireless carriers would have to compete on pricing and the quality of their networks rather than exclusive deals for hot phones.

Google argues this is what caused the PC-based Internet to flourish, and if the mobile Internet is to do the same thing, it needs someone to break the logjam of carriers, phone makers, and software providers.

But will it work? After all, at the moment Google is sort of doing exactly what decries: it’s offering an excellent phone through an exclusive channel tied to a single carrier. Later this spring the Nexus One will be available on Verizon’s network, but it’s harder to sell unlocked CDMA phones (Verizon’s technology) because they don’t use removable SIM cards found in phones based on the GSM family of standards. So that phone might well be tied to a two-year Verizon contract, and Verizon confirmed Tuesday that it won’t be sold anywhere other than Google’s store.

But Rubin said during a question-and-answer session following Tuesday’s event that Google has to be in the game before it can start shaking up the market. He linked the potential for this type of strategy to the same revolution that took place in retailing, with companies like Amazon.com proving that people were willing to buy products over the Internet without checking them out in stores first. That allowed companies like Amazon to eliminate the overhead associated with maintaining a physical retail store and consumers to have more flexibility with their spending.

In a way, the strategy behind the Nexus One is very Googly: launch early and iterate constantly. Schmidt’s previous gigs at Novell and Sun Microsystems showed him what could happen when innovative companies were slowly subsumed by determined competitors with deep pockets (Novell versus Microsoft) and open software married to cheap hardware (Sun versus Linux). This time, he’s marrying both in an attempt to remake mobile computing in Google’s image by taking on Apple and the wireless carriers.

Don’t expect Google to sell a ton of Nexus One phones in 2010. Rubin told GigaOm he thinks the company can sell 150,000 this year, which is a fraction of the 1.8 billlion smartphones that Pyramid Research recently said it expects will be sold over the next five years.

The upside for Google is that even if this strategy doesn’t work, the mobile Internet will still carry advertising.

Government Control

January 4, 2010 Leave a comment

Ok my post today is about how much control the government has and how much is to much. I don’t use drugs but I’m a believer that the government shouldn’t dictate what people put into their own bodies. I’ve got some videos on steroids just for an example in this post. If the government can continue get more and more control over what we say and do as American citizens then what’s stopping them from taking away all freedom? Just because something is bad for an individual does that mean that our government should outlaw it? What about sports? people get hurt in sports all the time why doesn’t the government outlaw them? How about alcohol and tobacco? Sure the government puts restrictions on who can buy them but they don’t completely outlaw them. The reason for this is GREED and wanting more power. Correct me if I’m wrong but wasn’t America started because England was to greedy and wanted to much control over peoples lives? Is that what it’s going to take to make our government realize what they are doing? Now I’m not saying that we need a revolutionary war here, but I am saying that we need to let our political officials know what we want and stop them from having so much control over us.

Obama’s Executive Order 12425 (interpol)

January 2, 2010 Leave a comment

” A few days ago Recliner Commentaries commented on President Obama’s quietly-passed executive order allowing Interpol to operate in America, unrestrained by the U.S. Constitution or American law.

Today, Larry O’Connor wonders aloud if any reporters would ask our president:

“Mr. President, is it true that due to your amendment to Executive Order 12425, INTERPOL may break into a home without a warrant, seize private property of a US citizen, hold a citizen for questioning without the right of legal representation and not be subject to any legal or criminal repercussion?”

I have to wonder, under this executive order, what would prevent a future corrupt President from exerting influence on Interpol to have his or her political enemies arrested and deported for trial, let’s say, for example, for hate crimes violations due to “defaming” Islam or speaking out against homosexuality?”

Quote from The Recliner Commentaries

Ok now our suppose to be great leader is taking our rights away without anyone knowing about it! How can this be legal? Interpol has no right to just barge into my house and take what they want, or imprison me without some set of rules to follow. If interpol was aloud to treat American citizens like this, then what’s stopping our president from having complete control? I do believe Obama is trying to take over our country and all he really cares about is the power he has and how he can get more of it. Since he’s been in office he has done nothing to help Americans, but has taken sides against America every chance he has gotten. If we don’t stand up against this tyrant now then soon we won’t have the ability to even question his doing without being thrown in jail or executed. We can not sit back and watch this mad man take control of our country any longer. He should be impeached for not upholding the constitution, not receiving a nobel peace prize. America is on the verge of becoming the next Roman empire with Obama playing the role of Caesar.

Bowl Games

Penn State 19 – LSU 17

Way to go Big Ten. Now I just need to the Buckeyes to win and it will officially a great new year. I’m picking OSU over Oregon for the simple fact that I don’t think Oregon has faced a defense like Ohio State’s. My score prediction is 23 – 7 only because the ducks do have a good offense and OSU defense will spend most the game on the field so they are going to be tired.
