WWDC 2015

I know people go overboard analyzing the slogan and imagery when Apple announces an event, but I'm surprised I haven't seen much speculation yet on this image.

To me, it looks like a bunch of Apple TVs (from the top view) hidden within the circular shapes. Coupled with the hints of a reset for the hardware and the new subscription service, I'm shocked more blogs/writers haven't noticed this yet.

Seems like a legit observation +Steve Boothe. Do you think the circles could represent round-faced Apple Watch models to shut the Moto 365 fanboys up? 

:D

"War"

I may not always agree with Marco, who himself is a bit of polarizing figure. But, like more and more people (from both ends of the political spectrum and in between), he's making sense on this issue.

"Edward Snowden continues to be much more of national hero and a true American patriot than the President."

Huge News

for me as an accountant. I can't wait to get back home and download the preview onto my Mac and take Excel for a spin. 
It's about time. Microsoft Office for Mac is getting its first major update in years.

Something Big Brewing at Apple?

This is a repost of an article I shared about a year ago. It was an interesting bit of speculative tech fiction. But was there a kernel of truth to it? Could Apple be prepping to take on Google in, of all things, Search?

Fast forward to today and you have some curious developments:

1. Tim Cook is loudly beating the drum of data privacy in recent interviews, going so far as to call it a human right: http://m.imore.com/tim-cook-says-no-one-should-give-their-right-keep-their-data-private

2. Actual (but sketchy) reports that Apple is looking into search: http://appadvice.com/appnn/2015/02/google-this-apple-might-be-prepping-its-own-search-engine

3. Others are taking notice of the privacy competitive advantage: https://aralbalkan.com/notes/apple-vs-google-on-privacy-a-tale-of-absolute-competitive-advantage/

4. Google facing the possibility of losing the default search in iOS if Apple doesn't renew the contract: http://www.marketwatch.com/story/5-concerns-that-are-holding-google-back-2015-03-03

Wouldn't it be very interesting if Apple did take Google on...all in the name of keeping user data private?

I'm in the process of changing all my online subscriptions to point at my Outlook.com address too. Unfortunately Google still manage to intercept vast amounts of my mail because so many of my contacts use Gmail.

This February is shaping up to be Buffalo's coldest in the 145 year history of recording temperatures. The old record is 11.6°, set in 1934.

The last time the temp was above freezing was 1/29, so it's possible we may experience a completely below-freezing month of February. Another rarity.

It's currently -8°. Ugh!
Hang in there. It can't - and won't - last forever. The week to finish off February will, fittingly, be another brutally cold one, according to National Weather Service forecasts. But, early March is starting to look promising. Not warm. Just promising. Sunday's forecast high temperature - 34 degrees - could... Read more »

Presenting the Fandroid Troll of the Week

This troll starts out strongly criticizing Apple for its "hairsay" (presumably "hearsay") promises that weren't kept. Clearly, the troll doesn't does understand what HEARSAY means, much less how it's spelled. Just how can a promise be hearsay or vice versa?? And don't even ask me what that last sentence of the first paragraph means.

Fact check: Apple never promised sapphire. That was the media drawing its own conclusions. Perhaps that was Apple's plan but unless it's announced, ITS ONLY AN UNVERIFIED RUMOR!

Like a (troll) boss, notice that comments have been disabled. Why would you want someone pointing out you're wrong or call you out on your own false facts.

Let's wait and see what features the watch actually has before calling a rumor a promise. Ok?!
 
Once Again Apple Doesn't Come Through with Its Hairsay Promises ... Tim cook Do four Home Work First ##

I am still amazed at the levels some of these guys will go. He has such hate for Apple that he posts stuff like this. Their minds are so preoccupied with hating Apple they make fools of themselves by posting misinformation.

A Must Read

I'm only part way through this lengthy article on ISIS, but it is already one of the most informative pieces I've read on the subject of this evil group.

Best line (a quote from a Princeton scholar who studies the group's theology) describing Muslims who claim ISIS is un-Islamic:

“embarrassed and politically correct, with a cotton-candy view of their own religion”
The Islamic State is no mere collection of psychopaths. It is a religious group with carefully considered beliefs, among them that it is a key agent of the coming apocalypse. Here’s what that means for its strategy—and for how to stop it.

Well, come to think of it we originally only wanted one and told our boys there was no way we were getting another one. So you see how that worked out.

Is anyone really innovating lately ? And it doesn't always have to be inventive or innovating to be useful. Apples is great at taking existing ideas/markets and making them useful to the masses.

Shocking

overhaul of a logo. I'll never look at the Browns the same way. Being a purist, I don't think this BRAND NEW LOGO will stand the test of time. One can only hope the old logo will be seen when the team wears "throwback" uniforms. 
Did the Cleveland Browns change their logo or use a new filter?

A Quiet Riot Documentary

A surprisingly well-rounded documentary I caught while flipping channels in my hotel last night. The story of the downfall & death of Kevin Dubrow is contrasted with the subsequent struggle to revive the band while replacing an iconic lead singer and dealing with his loss.

It does have a few Spinal Tap-like touches (which I wonder if they were contrived) but on the whole it was very interesting. 
The Quiet Riot documentary, 'Well Now You're Here, There's No Way Back,' has found a cable home at Showtime.

Always in search of Truth
Introduction
Bio: Father of four and husband.  I grew up in Salamanca, NY and graduated Summa Cum Laude with a Bachelor in Accounting from SUNY Fredonia.  I'm a little north of 40 and an unapologetic product of the 80's. Faith: A follower of Christ, I believe in being active within the Body and serve as our local church treasurer and on the board.  Biblical studies, especially digging into the Hebrew and Greek texts, are a treasured pursuit. Tech: An avowed techie, I enjoy anything relating to computers and mobile devices / gadgets.. iPhone owner.  Community: I'm very active in our local Little League program.  Besides assisting in running tournaments, I enjoy being the guy that nobody loves: the umpire.   History:  I have a keen interest in the American Revolutionary War and the nation's Founding, along with history in general.  Currently president of our local chapter of the Sons of the American Revolution, I've tied this interest to another hobby of mine, genealogy.  Sports: I've grown up watching my beloved Yankees and the hometown Bills and Sabres.  I attend all the Bills home games, suffering through the last decade of futility that began with the infamous Music City Miracle forward lateral! Sherlockian: A boyhood obsession with the Sherlock Holmes stories has been rekindled as an adult. I love Sherlockian scholarship and am a proud member of the local Holmes society: An Irish Secret Society at Buffalo. Espresso: Coffee is one of my true passions.  Everything about the "bean" fascinates me: the story behind the growing process, the brewing methods, and the people.  For me, espresso is where it's at, and I am the designated home barista for the neighborhood.  With my trusty Rancilio Rocky and Silvia setup, I'm able to replicate (if I'm lucky) some of the results from even the better cafes I frequent when out of town. I've branched out to the Kalita Wave pourover system to produce fantastic cups of coffee. Physics: I love to read articles and books that touch on the expanding understanding of our world through physics.  I like to follow today's theoretical advances to see if they will be experimentally verified.  The ability to deeply understand the universe we inhabit is one of the greatest gifts we have been given.
Bragging rights
I've seen every NFL team play a regular season game in person. I also attended the game where A-Rod slammed his 500th HR, although that probably deserves an asterisk at this point.
