Solar Energy is a bust

Sorry kids, it just can’t work based on how it stands in 2017! As much as we would all love the situation is that we just cannot, unless we are the elites, or even the lesser elites, say that Solar Power is sustainable. Why is solar power not sustainable? While it seems a no-brainer to say that solar power is a win win situation it may be more of a case of unless you own those solar panels outright and have the luxury of also having a battery storage system that will cover some of the time that there is … Continue reading Solar Energy is a bust

Facebook’s News Feed is still totally broken and biased

After all the uproar during and post Election cycle over fake news and bias in the Facebook News Feeds, months on the problem has seen very little improvement. Sure the problem has “improved” when it comes to the actual news stories but the following happens in more than 90% of occasions. The Link Title Rather than be an accurate link title Facebook will use something that makes someone click on the link for example a story about Barack Obama may very well be titled “Donald Trump” when the story is all about Barack Obama going off somewhere to write his … Continue reading Facebook’s News Feed is still totally broken and biased

Apple Airpods Bluetooth Heaven or Hell

When Apple launched the iPhone 7 they also introduced the Apple Airpods a bluetooth version of their classic earpods that they supply with every iPhone. There has been much said about the Airpods in reviews and some pretty biased sounding reviews.   I recently purchased a set and decided I’d do my own review, no photo’s no bullshit, just factual use. Unpacking After a long wait, almost six weeks from ordering to delivery, they arrived,  the airpods come with it’s own lightning cable but no charger.  This is typical though of the many sets of bluetooth earphones I’ve used over … Continue reading Apple Airpods Bluetooth Heaven or Hell

Conservative or Liberal, Who’re the most interactive on Twitter?

An interesting question is, who are the the most interactive, in fact who is most likely to be responsive to another person’s tweet on twitter and what type of person are they? Having been an ex-liberal I had many followers that were very regressive and as I transitioned from slightly left of center to being far more to the right of center than I was ever to the left I tended to notice a difference in the people I interacted with or didn’t interact with. Background Yeah I really need to give a little background to the switch from the … Continue reading Conservative or Liberal, Who’re the most interactive on Twitter?

When it is important to offer up citations or evidence of fact

Recently during a tweet I upset someone that I actually have much respect for Jason Calicanis because I was not as clear with my statement about citation being needed and he took offense.  This is to clear up why and when it is important to use cite references to substantiate you claim. At the time of the tweet Jason Calicanis thought that I was derogatory against his tweet with suggested that the ‘start up suggestion’ was as good as the suggestor had thought.  In fact it was the quoted tweet which claimed it was and that he was wrong and … Continue reading When it is important to offer up citations or evidence of fact

Yes, Apple are making a transition towards Arm Based Mac’s

I’ve written about this before, a long time ago, it is only now that tech news is slowly coming to this realization like lumbering idiots that they are. macOS is becoming legacy software – The Verge While they are still fluttering thinking that it is the end of he Mac lineup they don’t grasp that the reason that the development departments hAve been  medged is the same reason that that TMSC is focusing on 5nm chip fabrication for Apple devices. As I pointed out back in Is the Apple Macbook an indicator to Apple’s future Macbook range design? Months ago that the x86 chipset … Continue reading Yes, Apple are making a transition towards Arm Based Mac’s
