Isn't it amusing...?

That the same country that thinks you can have guns wherever you go, prohibits bringing water into an airplane?


Modern Man

"I’m a modern man, a man for the millennium. Digital and smoke free. A diversified multi-cultural, post-modern deconstruction that is politically, anatomically, and ecologically incorrect. I’ve been up linked and downloaded, I’ve been inputted and outsourced, I know the upside of downsizing, I know the downside of upgrading. I’m a high-tech low-life. A cutting edge, state-of-the-art bi-coastal multi-tasker and I can give you a gigabyte in a nanosecond!

I’m new wave, but I’m old school and my inner child is outward bound. I’m a hot-wired, heat seeking, warm-hearted cool customer, voice activated and bio-degradable. I interface with my database, my database is in cyberspace, so I’m interactive, I’m hyperactive and from time to time I’m radioactive.

Behind the eight ball, ahead of the curve, ridin the wave, dodgin the bullet and pushin the envelope. I’m on-point, on-task, on-message and off drugs. I’ve got no need for coke and speed. I've got no urge to binge and purge. I’m in-the-moment, on-the-edge, over-the-top and under-the-radar. A high-concept, low-profile, medium-range ballistic missionary. A street-wise smart bomb. A top-gun bottom feeder. I wear power ties, I tell power lies, I take power naps and run victory laps. I’m a totally ongoing big-foot, slam-dunk, rainmaker with a pro-active outreach. A raging workaholic. A working rageaholic. Out of rehab and in denial!

I’ve got a personal trainer, a personal shopper, a personal assistant and a personal agenda. You can’t shut me up. You can’t dumb me down because I’m tireless and I’m wireless, I’m an alpha male on beta-blockers. I’m a non-believer and an over-achiever, laid-back but fashion-forward. Up-front, down-home, low-rent, high-maintenance. Super-sized, long-lasting, high-definition, fast-acting, oven-ready and built-to-last! I’m a hands-on, foot-loose, knee-jerk head case pretty maturely post-traumatic and I’ve got a love-child that sends me hate mail.

But, I’m feeling, I’m caring, I’m healing, I’m sharing-- a supportive, bonding, nurturing primary care-giver. My output is down, but my income is up. I took a short position on the long bond and my revenue stream has its own cash-flow. I read junk mail, I eat junk food, I buy junk bonds and I watch trash sports! I’m gender specific, capital intensive, user-friendly and lactose intolerant.

I like rough sex. I like tough love. I use the “F” word in my emails and the software on my hard-drive is hardcore--no soft porn.

I bought a microwave at a mini-mall; I bought a mini-van at a mega-store. I eat fast-food in the slow lane. I’m toll-free, bite-sized, ready-to-wear and I come in all sizes. A fully-equipped, factory-authorized, hospital-tested, clinically-proven, scientifically- formulated medical miracle. I’ve been pre-wash, pre-cooked, pre-heated, pre-screened, pre-approved, pre-packaged, post-dated, freeze-dried, double-wrapped, vacuum-packed and, I have an unlimited broadband capacity.

I’m a rude dude, but I’m the real deal. Lean and mean! Cocked, locked and ready-to-rock. Rough, tough and hard to bluff. I take it slow, I go with the flow, I ride with the tide. I’ve got glide in my stride. Drivin and movin, sailin and spinin, jiving and groovin, wailin and winnin. I don’t snooze, so I don’t lose. I keep the pedal to the metal and the rubber on the road. I party hearty and lunch time is crunch time. I’m hangin in, there ain’t no doubt and I’m hangin tough, over and out!"

~George Carlin


Marin Amis stole my quote!

In his latest book, House of Meetings, published in 2006, Martin Amis writes, at the thir paragraph, or so, of the last chapter,
"Whatever doesn't kill you makes you stronger." Not so! Not so. Whatever doesn't kill you doesn't make you stronger. It makes you weaker, and kills you later on.
I wonder where he got that? Perhaps here in 2002? I guess there is no originality anymore... A reference would have been nice, Martin! As I said then, Who publishes these guys?


We lost a Great One!

George Carlin died of a heart attack. He was 71.


Show them to me!

I love good country music! Great video too!


Well, that's how I feel!

You know that feeling you get when you get that feeling?


It was just a bad day!

Apple does care about unlocked iPhones!

A few weeks ago MacWorld Editor Jason Snell wrote an article saying that Apple didn't care about unlock iPhones. He and I even had a short discussion about it here. Now we know that the new iPhone must be activated in the store. If you buy it online you have to go to a store to activate it. Furthermore, online may be the only way to buy an iPhone as a gift because they will not let you leave the store with an non activated iPhone. Who is the genius inside Apple that thinks making it harder to buy will make the iPhone a better seller? The price reduction is nice, and the goal of 10 million is low, but Apple is in huge problems and it's not because Steve Job is sick.


The problem with me and her?

We had great chemistry, but terrible physics...


The iPhone Almost Worth it now

I detach myself briefly from watching the Euro 2008 (on an airport thanks to my slingbox), in order to read about the "new". It's really the same old iPhone but now has 3G, apps (but only if Apple approves), and a new look that still looks old. The only interesting news is the new price 200$. Almost what it's worth. Won't be sold unlocked, so the unlocking business will improve, you have to thank stevo for that! My flight is delayed! Great! I can watch the whole game now... even if Italy is losing now...
Update: I didn't realized because I'm kind of allergic to stupidity, but the new iPhone launches on July 11... So, it's going to be another month without iPhone sales. You can still buy Nokias and Blackberrys during that time, those companies should also thank Stevo, the share holders should fire him (again).


Massive Parallel iPhone Supercomputer

Starting tomorrow I will buy your cheap old iPhone so you can buy the shinny new city iPhone 3G. My plan is to run massive amounts of iPhone on a grid computer platform to build the largest most powerful supercomputer ever. Just contact me through twitter.
