Reusable Headlines

This chap spotted this headline …

CES Was Full of Useless Robots and Machines That Don’t Work

Whilst this chap would generally agree with this and similar sentiments that surround the CES … it strikes him that it could be reused each and every year …. just replace the appropriate words …

CES Was Full of Useless IOT Devices That Don’t Work

CES Was Full of Useless Solar Powered Equipment That Don’t Work

Etc

Beyond that of course – a lot of the stuff they have is just well … unclear …

by unclear … do you you mean stupid?

The original headline if you care to read it … This chap didn’t bother.

Secret Bilderberg Meetings

This particular chap had never heard of the Bilderberg Meetings …. and has to say right out of the box … it isn’t the meetings that are secret … they have a web site that tells you all about them. Well – at least when they were held, who was there and who runs them. It’s just what was discussed that seems to be kept under wraps.

And that is all well and good … I mean … even if we wanted to know everything about everything that goes on in the world – well – we just couldn’t – could we?

For example … the 65th and latest meeting occurred just this past June.

The World Order connected through Bilderberg

The names involved include only 4 names from the tech community .. Continue reading “Secret Bilderberg Meetings”

Urine Luck

Or, perhaps, it’s just an ad campaign.

Ah yes … technology at its highest calling and delivering the best. A newspaper insert treated to indicate pregnancy if peed on.

“Widdle here, get a discounted crib” is the pitch.

And … goes on to note the estimable Guardian … that they’re not even the first with this, er, novel — channel? tactic? Continue reading “Urine Luck”

And We Wonder Why We Have Harassment Issues In Business

From the second paragraph we quickly discovers a veritable contradiction in terms …

Many participants don’t seem the least bit embarrassed, much less ashamed. On the contrary, they speak proudly about how they’re overturning traditions and paradigms in their private lives, just as they do in the technology world they rule.

Few participants, however, have been willing to describe these scenes to me without a guarantee of anonymity.

I think you mean contradickshuns in a dicktopian world

We Don’t Block Ads … We Block TRACKING

Apparently …

Advertisers may soon know us better than we know ourselves.

The whole article can be read here, but commensurate with one of our objectives …

We have objectives?

… of providing a public service, this chap thought he would share a few of the lines from the article and provide commentary.

Important to note that to save you the click through – which will want you to know that you are running an ad blocker if you are running a tracking blocker (go figure) … we have examined the piece and present you with the results below.

It is the AD Industry that keeps the term ad blocker high in out minds so that we feel guilty if we switch them off – implication being that we are simply taking the food out of their children’s mouths ….how else can they make a living?

I have an idea ….

First, the article is in Adage … so obviously pandering to their readership. Continue reading “We Don’t Block Ads … We Block TRACKING”

This Is The 21st Century … Right ?

I ask because we invented the CRT in 1897.

CRT Monitors were in wide military use during the 1950s.

The Plasma screen appeared in 1964.

LED screens first took to the stage in 1977.

The internet got started in the 1960s.

In 2015, ITC estimated that 3.2 billion people had access to the internet.

And yet … here we are …. in 2017 …. with five people – including Trumpette, Tillerson and Pence … stood around a printed map showing the possible paths of Hurricane Irma.

Good Grief.

Back to the last century in so many ways. If only they’d just go back to school, too. You know, remedial Geography, Economics, Civics, Math…
