The straw that breaks a camel’s back is significant only to the camel.
My poor Facebook friends. I put up with their incessant quiz results. They get to put up with my whining about it. One Facebook friend of mine (Hi, David!) questioned whether Facebook is even aware of the issue. Ha! Okay, time to make sure. Do I get bonus points for asking on Twitter? I said… Continue reading Facebook, Pretty Please?
At least, it could… I rant about all of the stupid quizzes on Facebook. I bet some of my friends wonder why. How about a simple demonstration — a list of all the quizzes that have “graced” my news feed (and that I blocked). I have hope (some, at least…). Facebook could let us define… Continue reading Facebook, We Have a Problem, And a Solution Exists
Don’t forget to read the fine print. And I’d apologize for the language, but it’s mild compared to how I feel. It’s like buying a car, but without getting the car.
It’s said that one never speaks of politics or religion in polite company. Here I’ve done both. In fact, my definition of a true friend includes being able to discuss both and showing up to help on moving day. Why do we talk politics? What’s the point? Is it to win votes for your candidate?… Continue reading Neither Politics Nor Religion
Call me cynical, but I think there’s more to Google’s new Chrome browser than a stable platform for web apps. At least, I hope so. My experience with Chrome has been a mixed bag. Although I love Chrome’s clean appearance, it has issues: Adobe Reader makes all of Chrome’s tabs inaccessible until the document is… Continue reading Google’s Real Reason for Chrome
I got to bed late last night, so today’s post is lame and rambling, just like always. Scott Adams The restrooms at work have those motion activated paper towel dispensers. You know the type: wave your dripping hand in front of the sensor, it dispenses a length of paper towel. Want more paper? You have… Continue reading One More Inane Blog Post on the Intertubes, This One About Bathroom Paper Towel Dispensors
Oh yeah! I want to borrow hundreds of thousands of dollars from a mortgage company that advertises using a stupid dancing girl ad! I guess, like for spam, there are enough idiots that respond to ads like this to make running them worthwhile. It’s sad, really…
Nordstrom will no longer have live piano music in its stores, claiming its customers “compliment canned music more often than live musicians.” Ignoring for the moment Nordstrom’s laughable excuse for wanting to saving money, this is sad news. My children take piano lessons. Their piano highlight of the year is to play at Nordstrom during… Continue reading Nordstrom: No More Pianists
There. I said it. Let the ridicule begin. Another old fogy doesn’t understand social sites. As my niece says, “What ‘ev’.” I started social networking on MySpace. Yeah, I know — I’m a little old for MySpace, regardless of what the experts claim. I signed up to see what my daughters were doing online and… Continue reading I Don’t Get Facebook
