Quoth the Raven: Nevermore!

It lends itself to endless tongue-in-cheek analysis. I couldn’t resist… (Bear in mind, some of this reflects more entertainment than actual opinion.)

Baltimore Ravens Safety, Bernard Pollard, says that, the way things are going, the NFL may not be in existence in 30 years. His comments seemed more bent around the “sissyfying” of the All-American “man’s” game.

It seems a lot of things have been commandeered by “Great Successors” these days…

North Korea is inching toward normalizing relations with their Southern kin. Talk about departing from a nation’s founding! Wow.

Apple’s root market feels alienated in lieu of Jobs’ departure, especially with all the talk of branching out toward “lesser quality” Apple products—DAH! Quality was why everyone raved over Apple before the 2010’s—an Apple without a “quality” buzz is like a bee without honey. STING! Maybe “bad Apple products” is just a rumor started in the Big Apple on Wall Street so someone could buy up bigger Apple stock at an even bigger discount.  · · · →


The PointIt broke my heart, but, honestly, we all knew it was coming.

A man wanted to be a writer, his father told him to conform to society like an interchangeable part, he became a leader in an industry funded by Apple contracts, then said to ignore Steve Jobs—the very man who made him rich. It reminds me of the brat teen, cursing his parents, saying he has nothing.. when he, too, has a MacBook, iPad, iPod, iPhone, and maybe even an iHome and the accouterments to boot.

Steve Jobs didn’t get along with people because he stayed focused on his vision: putting a ding in the universe. His company cultivated teamwork, not because they tried to get along, but because they pursued the same goals, ruthlessly. Steve didn’t worry about food. He was hungry during some of his greatest years of learning because his passions took priority. And, most of all, Steve didn’t sell himself, rather, he sold the idea that computers could be as consumable as Apples.  · · · →
