iPad - iDon't

Some people are foaming at the mouth over the new iPad. I hate to rain on their parade, but ... I can get the same functionality for 1/2 the price. And furthermore: * The iPad isn't a real widescreen (16x9) * Doesn't have a USB port [yet] * Can't multi-task * Has no camera * Doesn't support e-ink * Doesn't have a slot card * Doesn't have a GPS * Closed source OS * And finally - no Adobe Flash But it does have touch screen. All these people will shell out $600 for a touch screen? Not me. Don't drink the Kool-Aid kiddies :)


Feist is my favorite indie pop singer. Her voice has a nice earthy cadence and soulful tone. Here is a very charming video of her singing her hit "1-2-3-4" adapted for 'Sesame Street' dealing with learning the number 4.

reflections on a winter morn

frozen light suspended in time frozen dreams imagined and sublime early morning darkness slowly abates consciousness quickens the sleeper awakes transitory perceptions visions left behind worlds hidden from the mind harken voyagers with limited epistemology think upon this construct 'reality' hidden variables your models eschew vulgar unobservables an ontological stew pray consider strict materialists all something lost in man's Fall fragile understanding truth or lies trusting naught with Positivist eyes pray Science thou informest men unresolved e'er why arrogance then temporal prison the philosopher's derision what then make a decision amazing grace destroys any wall have faith Christ restoreth all bright transcendence the universe clear bright belief nothing to fear by Zachary Uram (c) 2010
