The voice-over is annoying, but concentrate on his words.

It’s bad enough we can manipulate photos as if they were dream matter.

But this technology goes so much further… it’s almost a blasphemy.

Palm’s Outlook

September 25, 2007

Palm, Inc. (PALM) – New Product Difficulties

Although the investment by Elevation partners and cash distribution to shareholders is a positive, we don t believe the company can exist in its current form as it is too small to effectively compete in the market for smartphones.

September 25, 2007

India is celebrating sixty years of independence from their former British overlords.

A whole bunch of events are taking place in New York City.

Last night I happened upon an Indian pop singer giving a free concert in Bryant Park. He was great!

He’s Remo Fernandes. [PDF link]

If you ever get a chance to see him or hear his stuff, do!

Blog Notes: I’ll Punish You Lot. I Will!

September 25, 2007

I know how to get up your noses.

DigitalLife is coming up here in New York City, beginning Thursday.

I’ll be there (with feral bodyguardage so don’t get twee ideas).

With a camera.

Now what if there’s an Asus Eee?

What if Palm heeds my threats accedes to my begging listens to reason and brings a Foleo for me to fondle?

You think I won’t molest the shit out of those things?

And then want to blog about them here?

Ah, but this blog might go away on Monday.

So why the fuck should I waste my time putting up such good stuff for your ungrateful ass?

Prove me otherwise. Click click give give.

My Wife Faces Homeland Security Part I: Homeland Security Presidential Directive #12

Let me ask you this: When the President of a nation can make a unilateral declaration that invalidates laws passed by Congress (e.g. the Privacy Act of 1974), laws passed by the States, and the Constitution itself, what do you have: a.) a democracy, b.) a republic, c.) a dictatorship. The answer is “c.” When laws and the Constitution are subservient to the directives of a single individual, it is a dictatorship. I am sorry. But I cannot interpret this in any other way. Call it a nascent dictatorship if you prefer. But we now have a system where a directive by a single individual takes precedence over law (Federal and State) and Constitution. THAT is about as un-American as you can get.

By the time this son of a bitch is out of office, we might be too far gone to save ourselves.
