Samsung Galaxy Tab Banned in the United States

"Although Samsung has a right to compete, it does not have a right to compete unfairly", said the judge who failed to see the irony in his words. The Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 is now banned from the United States, thanks to Apple and it's anti-competitive business tactics. This only continues to provide evidence that the concept of "freedom" highly touted in the United States is false.

In country were corporations rule and elected officials are merely slaves to the corporate royalty, this kind of stuff is to be expected.

United States Creating "Spy Viruses" (FLAME)

The idea that The United States of America purposely created a virus and infected thousands of computers sounds far fetched. However, if you've been listening to the news these last few months you may have come across something called "FLAME". FLAME is highly complex virus/malware that is so well written that even I am amazed at what it does. FLAME is the type of virus I would have written if given the motivation. From voice recording, to Bluetooth device snooping, it's definitely a virus that wants to spy on you.

The Sad State of Digital Television

Is it any surprise why so many people resort to downloading pirated content from the Internet, or why so many people are "cutting the cord" (aka, canceling cable service). Cable companies like Comcast are increasing rates almost twice a year while at the same time offering less and less service options.

Patents and Copyright Hinder Advancement

In the last couple of centuries, the advancement of our knowledge and technology has been slowing down. Not because everything that could be invented has already been invented, or because people are running out of ideas. No, It's due to artificial ideological limits that silly humans are imposing on themselves.

Twitter to Censor Tweets

It's a sad day for freedom; Twitter the popular micro blogging service has decided to put forth plans to censor the 'tweets' across various regions of the globe. The move sounds very similar to what the movie studios currently do with DVD and film releases. Will this be the beginning of the end for Twitter?

The Real Purpose Behind PROTECT IP and SOPA

On January 18th 2012, we witnessed the first ever global protest. Thousands (if not millions) of sites small and large "blacked-out" for 16 to 24 hours to raise awareness of an ongoing threat coming from the United States of America. Many supporters and the corporate backers of the threat have reacted with comments that are down right idiotic, thus showing the hypocrisy or ignorance of those who currently hold power in our world.

The threat is real, and goes beyond the pending legislation that prompted this protest (PROTECT IP / SOPA).

Mark Zuckerberg does not Deserve to be a Multi Millionare

Facebook is successful because it taps into the inner wants of people in the United States. This is fine even though I myself believe Facebook is utterly useless. However, the CEO and supposed "creator" of Facebook, Mr. Mark Zuckerberg does not deserve to be where he is right now. I know nothing about the guy, I've never seen the movie related to the subject, and I never knew that there was a real life person who thinks Mr. Zuckerberg "stole" Facebook.

Does HP Really Disappoint with WebOS

Did anyone really expect any other result? HP has been known for taking great things and messing them up really bad, just like Oracle, Apple, and Microsoft.  Why this happens, I do not know.  Maybe the CEO's of these large corporations are not seeing the bigger picture.  However, HP really is very bad at almost everything (except for laser printers).  I've said it before, and I'll say it again, when HP bought Palm, I knew it was all over.

How I Hate Voice Recognition Based IVR's

If you don't know what I am referring to, let me give you a hint: "Thank you for calling for help please say...". It seems as more and more companies (especially banks) are utilizing these automated voice activated "interactive virtual response systems". Some are are not so bad when they give you the option of saying what you want or pressing the key you want. Others however won't let you through to a live person for almost 3 minutes. You either have to sit there an wait till the stupid timeout kicks in, or play along with the computer.

Ubuntu Loses it Lead, Now #2

Ubuntu Linux is no longer number 1. Today I noticed on Distro Watch (a website that tracks Linux popularity) that Ubuntu has given up it's #1 spot to Linux Mint. This should come at no surprise to anyone who has kept up with the latest developments this past year. Since dropping support for full desktop computers and targeting small screen devices with their "Unity" desktop environment, Ubuntu has lost users in flocks.
