My sunny days get perpetrated by black thoughts shading the horizon.
I often dream of different realities but none compare to the one that I’m living in at this very moment. It brings chills to my spine to even think such a way but who else really cares? I mean even though we travel the same frequency we’re all on different bands.
Without any of my misjudgment coming into play, it seems that what I see dwindling afar always seeps in the little crack it balances on. A rare but mystifying moment turns to sadness and grief. What does that even have to do with anything you might ask?
Remember that song by lil John that came out around 2005-2006? All he did was yell “READ A BOOK!” Many years later as I reflect on that song those words of wisdom by lil John have inspired me to read… More.
I’ve struggled to keep a consistent schedule reading. I’ll start a book and be happily attached to it for a good month. After 30 days I grow tired and think less about the book and next thing I know I’m back to reading random bullshit online.
What I find crazy is that I can delve into these weird news stories on the internet, take some time to read a page of Lore on ESO, then scroll through countless news feeds trying to correct other people’s grammar. As technology grows and we become more reliant on Search, News Feeds, and Instagram pictures, we lose focus on what technology is really here for, to Aid us.
We have an endless supply of information geared toward us but what AI scripts and algorithms provide us with are articles about stuff we like, but not stuff we should check out… If that makes any sense.
You would think at this point in my life with all these screens in front of me and everyone else in the world, I would read more. Ya know like a book with substance or an educational magazine, yet I stay posted on Facebook and Reddit scrolling away my life as I skim through horribly worded comments and upvotes.
With that said, I’m going to subscribe to Blinkist to train myself to read more. I think my problem stems from anticipating the end of a book and I get overwhelmed and give up on even trying to finish. With Blinkist I’ll get the core facts I want and also read a bite size portion of an entire book.
I really love Google. My Pixel phone has been great for a good year and a half and I’m really looking forward to the Pixel 3. Google has a badass hardware line and it’s only getting better as we progress forward.
One thing that has been bothering me for quite some time is Google’s messaging apps. They have Hangouts, Android Messages, and Google Allo. Out of the 3 Google Allo seems very promising but after reading about how Allo fell from the top 500 apps list in their very own Play Store, it made me question what in the hell Google is doing.
Google Allo in my opinion is the better of the apps with its smart AI features and elegant design. Just like Apples messenger you can message people from your computer (even though is browser based) and has all the fun filled emojis, stickers, gifs, and smart reply features. What’s really confusing is that Google has implemented these same features in their Android Messages app which makes no sense at all. Why not just take Android Messages out of the picture and make Allo the main texting app on the Pixel phone?
If Google wants to be a fierce competitor to Apple, they need to make Allo the main app of which users communicate through instead of bombarding us with several different messaging apps. Facebook messenger and Whatsapp pretty much have that area on lock. I just really want to have that cool as experience that I had with iPhone but on my Pixel but Google can’t make their minds up.
While often made out to be fierce competitors, Apple CEO Tim Cook and Google CEO Sundar Pichai recently shared dinner and a conversation together in Sillicon Valley. Images of the meal were shared on Facebook and discovered on MacGeneration. more…Filed under: Google Corporate
Now for a fanboy like me, this is a site to see. Two CEO’s from rival companies chopping it up over dinner is a spot that looks verrry expensive. The question posed by 9to5Google is “What are Tim and Sundar talking about?” Well Here’s my guess…
It’s something that I thought about all the time, an iPhone running Android, or vice versa. I wouldn’t be the first person to mention something like this, Steve Wozniak even thinks that Apple and Google should work together. I honestly think that if Tim and Sundar were to create a smartphone together and dropping all past altercations aside, they could topple the smartphone market with just one phone. The device would be the most powerful, elegantly designed piece of technology that this world will ever see. Not to mention that Tim and Sundar can also knock Samsung off their radar. I’m not saying that because I don’t like Samsung, it’s because both Apple and Google had conflicts with Samsung infringing their copyrighted technology.
So what do I think these two CEO’s are talking about? Building an iPhone/Pixel that runs on iOS-Android.
For anyone who owns an Android device, you may or may not have heard about Google Allo. Google Allo is a smart messaging app that is practically like iMessage, WhatsApp, and Kik. The only difference with Allo is the taste of Android. Whether you have used it or not, there really isn’t much dazzle to it. I mean hell, the only awesome feature I found was the Google AI integration. Other than that, it’s just a knock off of what other tech companies have to offer.
In all honestly, the App is clean shaven and runs flawless. I recently purchased a Google Pixel and ever since going back I don’t think I want to return to iPhone. (lol I’m just kidding) Seriously though, Google Allo has been gaining slow momentum. The app recently reached 10 million installs after its first 3 months out but why should we really be concerned with that? Why doesn’t Google just take the route that Apple did and have the app pre-installed and set as the preferred texting app instead of that messenger crap. I get that shit confused with facebook messenger a lot which screws me up everytime I share something and I get the display of apps to choose from.
The fact of the matter is, if Google really wanted to take Allo to new heights, they should make it the prefered texting app on all android devices. Going back to Apple; they created iMessage and made a universal messenger that developed a secret community among iPhone users while categorizing everyone else as SMS. I strongly suggest that Google should take this approach. I mean hell, if you’re gonna copy the “familiarity of an iPhone” with the Google Pixel, at least try some of Apple’s other ideas.
Many of us probably have a love and hate relationship with Ads on the internet. Every so often you might come across an Ad that actually displays stuff that you’re interested in. Other times you’re forced into a choke hold on a YouTube video watching a 30 second Ad. That’s when companies like Ad-Block Plus (ABP) came into the picture to help eliminate Ads. The only problem with ABP is that since they are completely blocking Ads from your viewing, the websites that use those ads to generate revenue are now losing money. To help fund this sites and make the system look a little more supportive, Google Contributor came into the picture offering users a way to pay a monthly fee to help fund the sites they enjoy.
Google Contributor Launched back in 2014 with a set of prices users can choose from. You had the option to pay either $2, $5, or even $10 depending on how many Ads that you don’t want to see. The $2 range was the lowest tier level and it was gauged by Google that users would see 5-15% less ads. If you prefer to see less to no ads then the $10 plan was the way to go. The prices and statistics may not seem like much, which is why Google revamped Contributor. Instead of the weird price ranges, Google has set a starting price of $6.99 per month. This price range works way better than the others prior to the change simply because users will actually see the reduction in ads. Google also has done away with the percentages of ads you will not see. Instead they actually gave us numbers this time around estimating that users will see 400-2000 fewer ads clogging their webpages.
Contributor works with all web browsers and on most mobile devices. In order for that to work though you will need to be signed into your Google account. In this revamped model, ads are entirely removed or replaced with a pixelated image carrying a Thank You message. With their new set price range, users will more than likely have a more enjoyable experience with less ads and the comfy thought of support they give every month.
For all of you Apple fanboys out there, get ready to buckle your seatbelts because the rocky slide for Apple’s decline may be starting. During Google’s earning call, the company has surpassed Apple as the most valuable company in the world. Alphabet, as the company has renamed itself, brought in 21.3 Billion in revenue. Analyst were expecting Alphabet to bring in $8.09 per share but the search giant eradicated those speculations making them the most valuable company in the world.
Apple’s decline in stock didn’t happen overnight, their numbers have been falling for quite a while. Alphabet on the other hand has slowly climbed to its peak. Many of us probably would have never guessed this day would happen but it was coming either way. Apple has a few tricks up its sleeve for the coming years, hopefully we’ll see hardware from the company that will keep its heart pumping. In the meantime Google (Alphabet) who is a software company with a little bit of hardware thrown in is still vulnerable to the foreign rate exchange and the global economy.
Have you ever rolled a joint and then tried to smoke it only to find out that it won’t light? Then you have to go through the painstaking process of unraveling your joint, grabbing your pipe, then packing a bowl. It screws everything up because now all of your plans that you have gone through and made are now being pushed back 5 minutes or so because you got to redo you weed mistake.
What makes it worse its that you’ll get sad, open your refrigerator in search of yogurt but there isn’t any so you settle for strawberry sherbert. You’re only satisfied for 20 minutes because you realize that people who spell the word in front of the word that in this sentence with a letter “S” are foreigners. It makes sense right? I know that I’m not the only one who thinks this.
To top it all off with the icing on the cake, you began to think about all the other junk food thats in the fridge but you’re afraid to eat them because a sick stomach in the morning is something you do not want to deal with. Its kind of like a hangover but your not sick because of the Remy. OH and besides this nigga Fetty Wap, who in the HELL ELSE drinks fucking Remy Martin? NOBODY that I know of. Now you can easily joke and say that my friends are broke but we all got jobs and pay bills, so take your “broke” jokes across the river with the rest of those damn hoosiers.
I could go on all day but doing that would just get those weirdos jerking off to the impractical thoughts that pierce an ovulating mind. Just think of all those wonderful thoughtful juices seeping from the clustered lines and squiggles that scatter across the human brain. Its a bit gut turning but to say the least, the beef was cold.
Oh before I go, can we all just come together the summer of 2016 and make a video that says “Fuck Donald Trump?” Like I can’t be the only one who wants to take a shit on this noggin and piss in his nostrils. Like for real, fuck that rich bastard who appeals to the ignorant poor people. Those same ignorant poor people who don’t have money to pay for health insurance but want Obama Care abolished. Its bullshit but lets not think about it as we walk through life accustomed to un-equal trade and value.
How ever this shit goes, I know to not enter the realm of mistakable primitives and unjust conspiracies.
ps. Fuck Samsung, they are forever copying Apple. I just see the new design leak for that damn Galaxy S7, its ugly. I read rumors that the iPhone 7 will not include a home button and incorporate the 3D touch as a button but on the screen. Just watch though, Samsung will see what revolutionary creation Apple has implemented and then will copy it. Its fucking pitiful
So check it, I was on my old blog Lounge Chair and saw that I made a post about a Batman 3 movie that was set to be released July of this year! What shocked me the most was that how many views my blog got from just that one little post. I mean it was just a little paragraph and a flimsy photo like this one…
and from there the stats have been off the charts. Its crazy… While I’m on this topic I have come across that this is a well known rumor for a good 2 years maybe. I haven’t kept up with it not one bit.
(3 minutes of google Searching)
Okay…now I see whats up…The Dark Night Rises. I saw this ages ago on IMDb, this movie is supposed to come out July 20th and has a long list of cast members that I will not eeeven right on here.

Its everywhere! No matter what website you sign on to now they have added the feature that everyone loves and uses on facebook and twitter every day! The status update or the micro blog. The things that people do every time they log on to there facebook or get on twitter. It seems to be popping up everywhere! One website that I didn’t ecpect it to be on was IMVU, a graphical instant messaging client created by IMVU Inc. I was stunned to see it there, they call it “pulse”. Now I’m just waiting for youtube to get one. It seems like the new thing that everyone loves to do. I love to do it! Just look at the side of my blog and you will see my status updates. I’m not made at it kind of annoyed on how every site wants to do it. Why can’t they sit down and come up with something that will beat there competitor instead of joining with them. I don’t, I own a very un-successful blog and trippen over the fact of status updates. Comment your opinion.
