The greatest dad who ever lived!

What a powerful statement this is. I am sure that you to could name someone that you think is the greatest man but you may be incorrect.

Let me tell you about my dad. He was the greatest man that ever lived.

I know this now and it is an absolute truth that cannot be disputed by anyone currently living, previously alive or yet to live. This is something that you too will confirm by the time you read this blog and you to will only be capable of understanding it once you father leaves this world; and not a second earlier though some may be close to understanding it.

You see there is a magic moment that happens once you realize that your pappy has passed into the next existence and it is at this moment in time you truly know that you have a purpose and only you can fulfill it. It is the lessons your dada has been bringing to you since he provided the seed that fertilized the egg in your mother’s womb and there does not seem to be any way for you to know or learn this until he leaves this world.

It does not matter if your father left you at birth or any time thereafter; what matters is that in his presents or absences you have been on a life’s mission to discover his teachings great and small; putting them into meaning that only you will know how to use. It is in this discovery of joy that you fine the ability to transcend time and extend indulgence to bring that self-discovery into focus that all who come into contact with you can also learn from.

This however is only part of your story. I am sure by now you have realized that you mother has also played an equal role. You have to reach life’s plateau by yourself by bringing together the lesson of your parents and writing the thesis that will be known as your life story.

Now that you have reached the end, I know that you understand why I am saying that my father is the greatest man that ever lived; it is because I am writing this from the perspective of you the reader. It is my dad, it is your pappy, it is half of our birth.

In memory forever, thank you dad!


Things we miss travelling.

A vacation is one thing but when you are gone for an extended period of time you feel it more. The pain of knowing that tonight your favourite program is on television. Oh sure you have it recorded and you can watch it when you get home, but what about all those bloggers and FB friends out there. You know they are waiting to spill the story, well made just share who did what and OMG!!!

Well what if you off to Europe for a new job and get there only to discover NETFLIX et la is not available at all because your out of you region. DOH! Can you believe that could happen. Really?

I just love technology. First regular TV and then cable and satellite; and now Internet TV. BUT WHAT GOOD IS IT IF YOU CAN NOT WATCH IT WHEN AND WHERE YOU ARE.

I am so glad you think that way too. I found the answer for us, and it is BRILLIANT!

Just in Apple iPhone threat ...

 In an email I received there was this link "Apple's Worst Nightmare Comes From an Unlikely Source "
and I just simply had to read it after all I had just written about RIM.

 After you read this article I would be interested in see if you catch the same major point as I did and as this writing none of the commenter there seem too. Like so many other articles on technology items that response is so often form the vendor patriots or opposition, gleefully waving their banners in support of their side of the  cause. I believe they are missing the issue all together.

This line in the article approaches what I see an the underlying message and not just for Apple:

"While Apple could easily add Meizu to its list of patent infringement cases here in America, the company may not be able to do the same in China."

The problem with outsourcing is in the LAWS that govern the manufacturing process. I have been reading about the knock-off problems for years and anyone that I have spoken to that has visited the countries that are leaders in manufacturing of consumer good have all told tells of street vendors selling what looks like at best factory seconds.

I wonder if companies like Apple in this case will do a cost benefit analysis on setting up manufacturing at home. After all there is a very available labors force  and I believe that Detroit and Cleveland have cheap land and workers available.

What if Blackberry did ...

I read an article this summer that talked about the Blackberry problems to market the playbook and smart phones against Apple specifically; but that they where loosing all around to include Android. As a BB user myself I just accepted this as more iHype from techno junkies looking to get their 15 minutes and let it go. Or so I that I had let it go.

After the dog had woken me up last night and having attended to his needs I attempted to go back to sleep.
