I love sharing off the beat news from my former homeland... good luck at the #eurovision2015  PKN!
 
The Eurovision contest isn't until May, but Finland is already getting into the news.  As usual, it's not because anybody thinks Finland will win (after all, they changed the voting rules after the one time Finland did win), but because the Finnish entry is a bit unusual.

As always.

(*) And by "enjoyed" I obviously mean "cringed". 
Finnish punk band Pertti Kurikan Nimipäivät will represent the country in this year’s competition. They’re the latest in a fine tradition of off-beat entrants from the Nordic state that’s come last nine times since 1961

More snow this morning. I've had enough, time for a good book, the couch and a warm blanket (or dog).

I was trying to remember who delivered the commencement address when I graduated with my Master's degree but can't remember. Guess I'm getting old. But proud to be GWU alumni :)

The one thing I would add is to think like a revolutionary... don't accept the status quo, don't get too comfortable with the existing process or rules. Be willing to look for opportunities that come about when you break the rules.

This made me home sick! Even in the winter!
It's the absolute worst of the Nordic countries.

In my opinion it all comes down to having an open and inquisitive mind
Incredibly smart people aren't always born that way, but rather are constantly working to improve their intelligence. Here are 7 ways that you can get smart fast.

So sad.

This is such a trip down memory lane... there's only 3 phones on this list I didn't work on in some way. 
In less than a week, Microsoft Devices, formerly known as Nokia, will be joining Mobile World Congress for the very first time. Emotions run high from the company that once stood proud and tall with innovative smartphone designs and features. On 2 March, however, smartphone enthusiasts might be treated to an all new Lumia device running on the unified Windows 10 platform.

Sony CEO is considering getting out of the not so profitable phone and TV businesses... sad news since I absolutely love Sony XBR TVs, picture quality has always been amazing and ahead of everyone else.
Sony's appetite for struggling through the cutthroat smartphone and TV segments may have finally faded, with the company's chief exec saying he will no longer
