  • Being sanitary. … I guess that’s the end of that.

    Yesterday I was at the toilet at work. A coworker came in, did his business in one of the stalls and simply walked out. No washing hand or at the least pretend to do so, like some of my other co-worker. Yes, I can tell the difference. When you turn on and off the water […]

  • Verizon rep – being a long time customer is definitely important, but….

    I just got off the phone with a Verizon Wireless representative. I was inquiring about upgrading my phone and what kind of deal they could offer me. I had to revert back to a 5 year old phone due to a recent mishap with the mobile phone I was actively using. The deal they could […]

  • GE Calls For More Exports from the US

    On the way to work this Friday morning I was listening to NPR. They broadcasted an interview conducted by host Renee Montagne with General Electric’s CEO Jeffrey Immelt. Mr. Immelt spoke at an economic forum in Montreal earlier in June. He is asking for the United States to increase its exports, especially in areas where […]

  • What is the point behind a URL shortening service? Why are there so many?

    What is the point behind a URL shortening service? In essence, why is everyone using them and why are there so many? These were questions asked on TechCrunch, yesterday, by Ronald Tin, but not in so many words. My reply to him was as follow: Ronald, the point of a URL shortening service is to […]

  • 3000MB does not equal 3GB

    I find it so annoying when companies and individuals, who are in the technology business or are technically inclined, incorrectly calculate storage space. For example WordPress founding member Matt Mullenweg, in his “Free Space to Three Gigabytes” post states that the free space on WordPress.com will be increased to 3,000 MB, yet the title states that […]

I have embedded the UStream.TV live video stream below. The nice thing is that there is also audio, not just silent video. 07:48 AM Currently it is […]

  • Developing a business website solo – I underestimated it.

    I have been working on and off on developing a business website with functionality other than this is who we are, this is what we do for some time now. It has been taking me some time now to make some progress on the DomainVentory.com project for Innovadix, because of duties like family, day job […]

  • I was right! Buy Yahoo stock.

    Last week I tweeted that Yahoo’s stock was at $10 per share and it was time to buy. Comments on my tweet said that it is pointless to do so. As I was on my way to New York, I wasn’t able to provide a response to the comments. With today’s reports about Yahoo’s CEO, […]

  • Environmentally friendly!! What? Just keep sending me the Paper statement.

    I really don’t like it when companies decide to start sending me e-statements instead of a paper statements under the pretext “… reflect our commitment to the environment and will provide our customers with a new ‘earth friendly’ service.”. Uhh … What? Just keep that paper statement coming, because I am not going to log […]

  • Comcast gets owned by the FCC. Well, sort of.

    Another win for Net Neutrality. Today it was reported that the FCC “disciplined” Crap…Comcast for their violation of their customers basic write to access information on the Internet. I say disciplined, because Comcast was not punished via a financial burden. They were just told “you were bad. Don’t do it again. Fix it.”. It is […]
