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.
SarahPAC has evolved from a straight-forward website with a limited goal to a full-fledged official Sarah Palin‘s interactive website. Everything for the general public is there-her Facebook posts, her tweets, email updates and of course the PAC donations. These are detailed, better broken down and my bet is that her PAC will increase due to this flexibility.
For those interested in a speech appearance, the option is there. The website design is impressive, colorful and very patriotic. Kudos to all involved in this project. GAME ON, indeed!
The Almighty God has spoken. The end of times are near. Under the Obama administration, I expected nothing more than rainbows and unicorns. Maybe the seas would have parted as the prophet Moses asked God for one of the most incredible display of His power to save His people from being murdered by the Egyptians.
When I saw this I had a “shock and awe” moment. I could not believe it! The image that looks so dark, with the skies opening (below) for Easter evening’s spectacle is quite impressive. I wonder, W.W.O.D. (What Would Obama Do) if he was standing outside?
Now for the kicker: THAT is scary. Repent and convert President Obama, repent and convert; do this at least for the good of ”your” country. Oh and do not leave God out of any prayers, mhkay? He might be a bit offended by it. Example below:
Until, that is, the Thanksgiving Proclamation of 2009 — the first from President Barack Obama. After a passing reference to a George Washington quote (the first President had observed “by acknowledging with grateful hearts the many and signal favors of Almighty God,”) — that’s it. God does a vanishing act from the Obama Thanksgiving Proclamation. What Americans get instead are thanks to “Native Americans,” the fact that Americans “observe traditions from every culture,” must band together to be “serving our communities” and “have gratitude for all we have received in the past year; to express appreciation to those whose lives enrich our own; and to share our bounty with others.”

UPDATE: The Right Scoop uploaded Andrew Breitbart’s speech, and called them on all the unions’ tactics to try to get away with money, from Trumka all the way to the Wisconsin Capitol.
Saw this video from a person that was “on the other side of the aisle” as he recorded with his cell phone the tone of civility, peace and sheer American classic patriotism with decent hand gestures and moving protest signs-oh, those signs…you gotta see this for yourself.
As Governor Palin was speaking, they were shaking penny jars (this from an attendee that is a member of HotAir) and this lasted the whole event. “Democracy and freedom for me, not for you.” If Andrew Breitbart told them right then to “go to hell” I don’t blame him one bit for it.
Watch and see for yourself what happened. The media will not report this; it’s gonna be one of those “sweep under the rug” tidbits because after all, they are all for class, civility, hope and change.

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!
