Four years ago I wrote that the political media was dead and didn't know it yet. I thought at that time we'd quickly bury that corpse. Tonight we drove another stake into its undead heart but like zombies the only sure kill is to kill the head. I'm sure everyone feels a huge sense of relief that the elections are over. Especially when we have spent what seems like an eternity listening to the media talk about the "race". Perhaps that is part of the strategy.
I'm about to go speak to the crowd here in Chicago, but I wanted to thank you first.
I want you to know that this wasn't fate, and it wasn't an accident. You made this happen.
You organized yourselves block by block. You took ownership of this campaign five and ten dollars at a time. And when it wasn't easy, you pressed forward.
I will spend the rest of my presidency honoring your support, and doing what I can to finish what we started.
Was messing around with some old iPhone 4s and Walmart Family Mobile since my parents wanted the phones and wanted the cheapest phone bill they could get. I found various how-tos on the web and tried to combine what I found into one set of sensible instructions. Hopefully in the future things won't be like this.
Just thought I'd record my predictions for the iPhone 5 before it is announced and see how close I can get. Essentially a lot of this is already known from leaked parts. I'm under NDA regarding iOS 6 but I might guess at features that I have not seen. I've updated this with comments about what actually was announced.
The care of human life and happiness, and not their destruction, is the first and only object of good government. - Thomas Jefferson
Many of the truths that we cling to depend on our point of view. -Obi-Wan Kenobi
Recently I received a letter from Reed Hastings, CEO of Netflix, telling my why he raised prices on my service and why he was making changes that would make Netflix less convenient for me to use.
I took some time to look at the videos of Metro/Windows 8 and also download the Developer Preview. Plenty of information is already available at the MSDN website. Probably the best of the presentations is the one given by Jensen Harris - 8 traits of great Metro style apps. Taking these 8 great traits point by point I'd like to give you my impressions as a long time iOS and Mac developer.
Does history record any case in which the majority was right? - Lazarus Long
