Once again, it’s been too long since I’ve posted something on here. I figure if I don’t post something now, then it will be an even longer period of time before I post anything on here. Sometimes, I’ll check the news to see if there’s anything interesting to write about. I do find some topics that do interest me, but, a lot of the time I can’t really think of anything to add, or I don’t know enough about the subject to be able to post anything intelligible about the subject.
This is a screenshot of the headlines on CNET News. And these are my thoughts:
- “What You Need To Know About Gawker Breach”
- OK. I don’t know if I’ve ever even been to Gawker. I had to actually click through the title to read a little on this article before coming to a conclusion as to what I thought about it. I still can’t really tell what it is, as there is no “About” page on Gawker’s entire Website. I had to actually Google it before coming up with something. Apparently, it’s a blogging network and, according to Wikipedia, it is the parent company of Gawker.com, Fleshbot, Deadspin, Lifehacker, Gizmodo, io9, Kotaku, Jalopnik, Jezebel, Gawker.tv, and Cityfile. OK. Well, I’ve only been to two of those websites, I only frequent one of them, and I’m not a registered member of any of them. I frequently visit Gizmodo.com because they blog about all sorts of gadgets and I enjoy the layout of the site and the posts. I visit Lifehacker even more seldom, to see if they’ve got any recent, cool tips or tricks to throw my way, and I haven’t been there in months. Sorry, LifeHacker. You can just call me “LifeSlacker”, OK? So, how does the Gawker Breach affect me? Well, apparently, it doesn’t.
- Wikileaks Vulnerable to Espionage Act?
- Well, this headline should come as no surprise to anyone who’s been following the story of Wikileaks, its releasing of classified government documents, its owner coming under fire on allegations of rape and molestation, and their website being hacked so many times that they’ve had to change hosts at least five times in the last week. So, I’m really surprised that they would come up with yet another way to try and bring wikileaks down. Though I must commend them for trying to get the government to hear their argument for free speech rights, though, I don’t think those rights are in effect when you’re releasing to the public, documents that have been deemed classified by this government or any other. What good are you doing ANYbody by releasing documents that give up the position or former position or stronghold of US forces in Iraq, Afghanistan, or any other country? You’re just releasing them to say, “Haha, look what I did!” No, you’re not a sheep. You’re a wolf in dumb ass clothing.
- Book Takes Aviation Fans Inside Dreamliner
- Of course, this one is about a plane. But, what about it? Who are these fans of this plane? I didn’t know planes had fans. Except…engine fans. I really liked that Cesna I was on that one time, but I’m not going to give it a standing ovation if I ever see it rolling down the runway again. True, the title doesn’t actually imply that they’re fans of a plane, but if you read into the article, it does say that “…photographer Edgar Turner gives aviation fans a wonderful behind-the-scenes look at the making of one of the most anticipated planes of all time.”I didn’t know there were fans who anticipated the release of a new plane. I guess that’s an entirely different kind of geek, altogether. I anticipate the releases of new Operating Systems and Web Browsers, hoping that they’re packed with features or bug fixes that I’ve been waiting for, as well as the release of new hardware, like a new notebook computer with more RAM and a more powerful processor. Anticipating the release of a new plane brings to mind the indulgence of a world I haven’t delved into since I was a little kid. I used to look at pictures of jets in magazines that my uncle would have. Pictures of F-14s, F-15s, F-16s. I always wondered how high up the F-numbers went o_O. And what did an F-1 look like? Isn’t that a car? Well, according to that website, its contractor is Mitsubishi, so maybe it is car-like? Wonder if it has cruise control.
Well, there you go. Apparently, I did have something to blog about. Wonder what kind of interesting method I’m going to find next time to blog about something? Honestly, a lot of the tech updates they’ve been releasing lately have been really boring in my opinion. Even watching the presentation of what Apple’s new OS, Mac OS X 10.7 Lion is going to look like, didn’t hardly impress me in the least. That’s why I wrote it like this; because I’ve been snoring lately when reading headlines. I am trying to remain the optimist, though. They always save the best for last, anyway. Them and their “one more thing…”
