640 million dollars UPDATE

March 29, 2012 Leave a comment

That’s the current prize for the mega millions drawing on Friday march 31. !

This airport needs closer parking ! 

Ever wonder what could be done with that much cash?

Here are a few ideas.

You could buy a jet or two,
a big house for the two of you, with a horse or two

You could visit every spot on earth and check every item on your bucket list .

Huangshan Mountain

You could buy a trip to the space station just to hang out and check the view.

ISS lobby

Our father, who art in heaven…

 With whats left over, you could help:

  • 45 million taxpayers on food stamps, 
  • 23 million Americans who are  jobless 
  • 1.5 million bankrupt.
  • 4 million  or so foreclosed.

The derivative of x^2 

With whats left over you could make a $10k dollar  donation for college to every  American student “for free”.

With whats left over you could play lottery another few million more times     

Something to consider after  you win and plan to spend the winnings! 


New Ipad review

Its New! Its faster! It is dynamic HD1080p!

Not that exciting to you?

Apple is starting to sound like other CE platform that’s on its last legs anyone remember,  8 track,Walkman, Beta-Max,VHS Laser disk..?  

Anyway lets break it down:

1) Form factor is sleek and stylish.
2) New 5X processor that lets me do the same stuff, faster.
3) New 4g support.
4) Higher resolution pixel screen.

WiFi Verse 4g


The option of wireless platforms is a typical apple offering, but $250 for the privilege of 4g is price gouging at best, since Android devices that have 4g sell for less than $100.

That said the buffet of features will always get the person with eyes bigger than their stomach.  So order away. For those who have a personal task in mind get the Wifi is great for personal use if your always in reach of a hot spot.

The business user should get the 4g because they are on the  move all the time but make sure you have an unlimited package. These devices have a lot to say online, they will eat up the bandwidth just running apps without your help.
With AT&T new announcement of limited bandwidth, I would consider the 4g, this is something that any other carrier controlled data network  can  do and it will affect your apps.

Same old Bell

I worked for and organization that created the telecom standard. The bell system. The day I was hired I was told that Ma Bell had 3 basic rules.

Don’t remember her smoking 

1) Don’t steal her stuff
2) Don’t screw up your job
3) Don’t mess with her women

and she would give you a rewarding job for life.
I worked there while the company was dissected around me, I even helped tape bathrooms and inventory her assets.
Back in those days most meetings were about enlarging capacity to ensure that customers (the whole country) had bandwidth .  It seems that after divestiture the company was more focused on its shareholders rather than its 80 million or so customer base.
2010 Reported Consolidated Revenue @ $124 billion so I find it hard to accept that 1999 dial up speeds are part of the 4g all you can eat, most expensive service in the world experience! 

The empire controls the data, you have been warned.

Singtel currently has 435 million clients, non are subject to the same unprofessional standards or service and performance.

The old Ma, while dominating and ruthless was honest and her clients services came first.

The sight of a forced slowdown is shameful at best, but more likely #2.

From "My" point of view

I keep reading how Obama has done so many things for the American people how as president he has made progress with this and stopped that, got this, and has done that

“a black Santa!”…

From my taxed ass point of view when I add up the “this” and  “that“, what I find is nothing more than a bunch of weak ass concessions that have been given back from the Bush days.
Obama has raged war for 3 years, left the terror jails stay open, the despots still paid, but mostly he has left the nation living in fear of WMD, Bio terror, nuke mushroom clouds, all the while  the criminals are given presidential shields of protection .
To add insult to the actions taken by this president, those “concessions” of this and that come with more conditions that affect the taxpayer.
YES WE CAN, my ass!

Nigel Farage the Co-President of democracy is an out spoken English “public servant”. What he said rings true around the world. These are some of things going on in the world that Americans should pay attention to. 

The Greek economy has been in the news but not Ireland. Last year Ireland spent 998% of there GDP.
The Italians have spend 220% of their GDP and now are not allowed to hold elections.    
Who is in charge?
 And the winner is
