It’s a bill with a very friendly name, pirates are bad, and we’re going to stop them, politicans can even show it’s a sign that both parties can work together, as it has bi-partisan support. Except, that it was drafted without the… Read more »

Your words are weapons of mass destruction. They can be used to make people pull a trigger, or lay down their arms. Share your words wisely. The only security checkpoint against this weapon is your own heart. Keep it in check. This is universal, it applies in business, and in your personal life.
I’ve been traveling a lot for the past 2 months, when I meet people, the conversation usually ends up in a “who do you work for? what does ZippyKid do?”. I am after all doing this for business. Usually people haven’t heard of us, or the other players in the WordPress Hosting niche, some people… Read more »
Samsung today “promised” a 2Ghz dual core phone. I went on twitter and asked “Why?”. I can’t make my case in 140 characters, so let me try here. I’m glad that Samsung will still be around in a year, I’m glad that there will be alternatives to the iOS, Windows, Android, Motorola monopoly/conspiracy. But that’s… Read more »
Emerson is often misquoted with the saying “Build a better mousetrap and the world will beat a path to your door”. He never said something that dumb. What he said was: “If a man has good corn or wood, or boards, or pigs, to sell, or can make better chairs or knives, crucibles or church… Read more »

It’s an Amazon Daily Deal, it’s $3.99, it costs less than your venti caramel frou frou… if you’re a fan of Tron, Snowcrash, Hackers.. you’ll love this… Read more »

Why do people still not pay attention to this stuff? I’m not commenting on choice of colors, but rather that it’s not obvious… Read more »
Why Monopolies Suck, arrogance of Time Warner Cable. Update (May 12th 2009) I’m leaving the original post up, but in case anyone else stumbles upon this, I’d like to share that the issue has been resolved to my liking with Time Warner. As always it was one bad apple giving the bad impression and discomfort…. Read more »
This post talks about how Microsoft’s new Ad puts Apple on the defensive. I beg to differ. The Ad is cute, but it preaches to the choir. The apple fanboys don’t like it for some reason, the windows fanboys think it’s a punch in the face of Steve Jobs. But seriously is it? In the… Read more »
The results of the election have proven once again, that the ideals of humanity, know no color, or ethnicity.
That there is always light at the end of the tunnel, and that race relations are getting better, things are changing
and the younger generation, is ready to take control of it’s future.
Now, I’m not delusional, I don’t believe that by the end of November, Gas prices will be around $0.99/gallon, or people
will not be evicted from their residences. There is a lot of work ahead of us, the hard part is about to start. Enjoy this
electoral victory for a few days, but start preparing for the tough times ahead.
