Jobs mystery: Krugman blames Apple http://finance.yahoo.com/news/jobs-mystery-krugman-blames-apple-074749010.html

"All technology from the iPhone onwards has had zero impact on the British economy. It's made no progress whatsoever despite all of this stuff," he told the audience.

Technology gadgetry is more distractive than productive. And there is research suggesting shrinkage of the brain due to multi-tasking. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sciencetech/article-2768303/Do-use-smartphone-tablet-watching-TV-Then-brain-wasting-away.html

For me, just flying around with the rather basic terrain is fun. Imagine cooking up a game with more compelling scenery artwork and actions.

http://this1that1whatever.com/stock-charts/tesla-nasdaq.php When Tesla stock dipped below $200 ($181.40 low on March 27, 2015), I considered buying but didn't have the gumption due to how much cash Tesla was burning while China sales were stalled. Then came the Tesla battery announcement with $800 Million in its first week. Tesla stock is $244.20 in afternoon trading on May 14, 2015. Tesla Motors needs to be renamed to Tesla. http://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2015-05-08/tesla-s-battery-grabbed-800-million-in-its-first-week

Freedom of speech and expression but ... Anyone who shouts obscenities such as FHRITP in public (if proof is captured in video) should be immediately fired by their employer. If unionized employee, good luck getting your union to support you. Kiss your union dues goodbye. But then again, the expression is tolerated on the Internet and social media. One radical approach would be for social media sites to censor content ...

Mormons came to the door. I talked to them for a while. It's a nice to have them politely listen to my views as a devoted atheist. They were intrigued by my self proclaimed devoted atheism. They asked why/how I came up with that. I said it came in a flash, and not even in my #1 and #2 most creative thinking places. I think it was a sign. I should start writing my devoted atheist manuscript. I may get thanks and appreciation many hundreds of years later. Oh never mind - I much rather spend my time learning 3D technologies for modelling, animation and gaming.

Continuing to enjoy the challenge of learning Unreal Engine 4 while trying to come up with good ideas for a game, animation or modelling in the 3D realm.

+LRoy Shreding A lot of effort by Epic Games went into making the trees and foliage which I used. I like the arches - maybe begging for a desert setting. I'm actually thinking of doing buildings in a city with a drone flying around poking and spying.
