If you haven’t watched his Stanford University’s Commencement Address, please do so. Print it, and reflect on his message and his advice to find love in what you do; a very inspiring speech. Stay hungry and stay foolish; succeed is around the corner.
The world still grieves Steve Jobs’ departure from this world. We all knew it was coming, but still when it happened, the world stopped spinning-for an infinitesimal second.
America became enraptured with Jobs’ love and creativity of his signature technology. Millions around the world need and use Apple instruments to communicate, share pictures and now have some FaceTime instead of texting away. Apple revolutionized the market and pressed hard on the rest of the competition and everybody benefits in the end because now the world is quite accessible.
I learned how to type on a Macintosh, and still ingrained in my brain is the startup sounds, and the buzzing sound of the A:/ drive when it ejects the floppy disk. Windows quickly followed suit, and is still an incredible monopoly; corporations are quite forced to update and increase their productivity through Microsoft software, their upgrades and other nick-knacks.
Both Apple and Windows give us people with incredible skills that are often either very needed, or typecast-the nerds, or geeks. Right now the best way to describe many of them are “home brewers” – developers that create those “apps” for smartphones and tablets. There’s nothing short of amazing when immersed in a software engineer or a developer’s mind, where they make the difficult sound extremely easy and get us folks out of trouble and rescue us from a meltdown.
I don’t want to take away from what’s to come; our current crop of extremely talented individuals that now emerge from Google’s Android and HP’s Palm WebOS give the consumers a gamma of choices that can only come with healthy competition. IBM goes as far as 1911 and still trades strong, but in the seventies Apple kicked in, and now in 2011 we hold a thin computer in our hands.
And for that Mr. Jobs, I thank you very much.
Additional Note: Since I have a TouchPad and was hoping for a makeover with Meg Whitman, I am very disappointed-she’s still agrees with the kill of the TouchPad’s WebOS. Now she has to cut outrageous salaries; dissect HP, and make it profitable and hopefully change her mind to improve a good product.

President Obama will be speaking to the United Nations General Assembly on Sept. 21.
This will most certainly account for heavy traffic during this time.
Please come with flags or your own hand made signs.
Tell President Obama that you want him to veto the Palestinian call for statehood.
Thousands of Americans will be arriving via buses, trains, and planes, but most will not be Jewish Americans. It seems that the Jewish Organizations have failed to act even in the face of Israeli leaders calling upon everyone to rally in front of the UN in support of Israel (www.durban3nyc.com/).
Pamela Geller will attend the LA event, check it out here.

“We got to keep an eye on the battle that we face: The war on workers. And you see it everywhere, it is the Tea Party. And you know, there is only one way to beat and win that war. The one thing about working people is we like a good fight. And you know what? They’ve got a war, they got a war with us and there’s only going to be one winner. It’s going to be the workers of Michigan, and America. We’re going to win that war,” Jimmy Hoffa Jr. said to a heavily union crowd.
“President Obama, this is your army. We are ready to march. Let’s take these son of bitches out and give America back to an America where we belong,” Hoffa added.
Obama addressed the crowd shortly after Hoffa.
Via Weasel Zippers, it seems that so far Obama approves. Does he want to be kicked out of the White House or imprison and destroy America? And I’ve been sarcastic about calling him an Anti-Christ.
Governor Palin‘s speech in Iowa has has so far an interesting range of reactions, from revealing the true illness of America that suffers from direct political influences to a total disappointment because she didn’t announce her candidacy for 2012.
You may say that Rove‘s seed sprouted amongst some people but America is not patient, used to regular partisan standards on all parties and want this all over and done with in order to go back to their surreal reality shows, so they can get rid of Obama later.
Nobody believes as I do that this is must force Obama to respond. Palin laid her card without any specifics just like the rest of the GOP do-and why should she? Obama will present His “Ultimate Miracle Cure Jobs Plan” that will have none of the suggestions in Palin’s plan.

GOP Establishment-Are you willing to give some, and take some? Or let the US Constitution fly by, ignoring what this president has done to this country that WE THE PEOPLE love so much?
GOP contenders: BE UNAFRAID. THE GAME IS ON!
Are the GOP possible candidates too afraid of the media?
Are the GOP possible candidates too afraid of confrontation?
Are the GOP possible candidates unable to engage?
Are the GOP possible candidates proven leaders with expertise with the military-and respected BY the military?
Are the GOP possible candidates salivating to take on Barack Obama, look him in the eye and tell him ENOUGH IS ENOUGH?
NO MORE! IT STARTS NOW AND PLAY HARD CORE CONSTITUTIONAL PROTECTION FOR AMERICANS!

This is the real deal with good stream and sounds.
Here’s a tidbit of this information. Spread it all over the Internet, and tweet about it! We can count on cable networks and other news media to cover parts of it, but not the whole event:
