Why is it that everyone seems to think that Amazon has the last say on everything? In a world where everything is based on profit, don’t ask what’s wrong with the product, ask what’s wrong with Amazon. (more…)
This was no ordinary iPhone. This was my 5S. Why am I wondering what have we done to let these people take over our lives? Who are the brain police? (more…)
Someone recently asked me which search engine was better, Ecosia or DuckDuckGo? So I wrote one of my “Teachable Moments” … this is a very difficult question to answer.
I’ve added Google into my answer because that’s the one to benchmark. They’re all fairly good, and as you might expect, nobody is as good as Google. Of course, unless you’re one of the millions who really hate Google. Then the second choice would probably be DuckDuckGo.
What would you think if your friend carried a recorder into secret sessions conducted by your state on how to get rid of votes? How to change a ballot, and how to list it incorrectly? (more…)

When you are 14, World War I starts, and ends on your 18th birthday with 22 million people killed. Later in the year, a Spanish Flu epidemic hits the planet and runs until you are 20. Fifty million people die from it in those two years. Yes, 50 million.
I’ve preached against bogus web advertising for nearly 30 years. It’s half the web’s problem, and most of the bandwidth problem. If publishers would have held true to some of the original basic advertising modes, the industry wouldn’t be where it is today. Programmatic advertising could change everything. But lazy ad buyers are failing to embrace that change.
Obviously, WiFi is great. It’s changed our lives, allowing for an unprecedented degree of flexibility with internet-enabled devices. Home WiFi is even good enough in large portions of the United States that people justifiably feel comfortable using it for everything, such as work, gaming, and streaming.
