Yup..last straw…see ya Facebook! I’m out.

I’d heard about this “feature” a bit ago, but never really took the time to look into it.

Last straw for me.  I’m getting rid of it.  Not that I use it much anyway.




Food for thought…

Project for the week

Going to try out OneNote this week.

I’ve been hearing good things about it for years and have always wanted to try it out. It’s out for the Mac and is FREE!!

So, why not.

I’m skeptical that it will replace my beloved Evernote. It’s going to have to do a lot and really impress me to do that.

However, I read and article this morning that gave me pause. it detailed how there is room (and purposes) for both apps within the scope of how people work. I’m really curious about that.

So, this week, I’ll be giving it a whirl.

I’ll report back on how it goes.

If I didn’t know better

I’d think I was back in Kansas.

With the weather here today, you could easily fool me.

Snow, rain, hail, thunder, lightening, wind, temps in the upper 20s and low 40s.

It’s like Kansas in the sprint time.

Don’t be a Glasshole

Seems Google has heard all the rumblings and concerns (and mocking) about their forthcoming product “Glass”.

You know the wearable device that looks like a pair of eyeglasses, but with a little computer and display integrated into it.

The product is getting ready to launch to the general public in a while, and Google has high hopes for the device. It is, after all, a huge step into the realm of wearable technology.

I’ve gone on record as hating the thing from the start. I would never use one, and I’m not sure how I’d react to actually seeing in the “wild”.

Google now seems to be hearing a lot more people like me express “concerns” about the device and how the wearers/operators/owners will be using the devices and behaiving in public.

So, they have published a “Do’s and Don’ts” file for the new “Explorers” as they call them.

It’s pretty funny.

The best thing is that they call people who are being jerks “Glassholes”.

Love it!

I’ve used the term before for a wide variety of things, but to think that the term Glasshole could become a permanent part of our tech/pop culture is too funny.

The last sentence is really the telling one.

Breaking the rules or being rude will not get businesses excited about Glass and will ruin it for other Explorers.”

In other words, please don’t be a complete asshat (read: Glasshole) with our pet project because we really don’t want organizations to start banning them like firearms or cigarets.

Yeah, that would be horrible for business.

Too funny!! (NeSFW)

This is so funny in so many ways.   Take a moment and watch this.  If you’re at work, be sure you have headphones on or turn the volume down a bit.

The language just floors me.   And the fact that it’s poking fun at Time-Warner is even better.
