This guy and his wife both dumped the iPhone for the Nexus One

May 31 2010 Published by under Ramblings

I’m finding this to be more and more common… for those who actually buy and try a Nexus One, they prefer it over the iPhone. Its looks like sales will continue to grow for the Nexus One (and all Android) once people can try and buy Nexus One’s in brink and mortor stores.

Meanwhile, I can’t wait to see what Team Apple rolls out for the new iPhone next week! πŸ™‚

On April 24, I put aside my Google Nexus One and purchased a white 32GB iPhone 3GS from AT&T. Two days ago, I returned the Apple smartphone and cancelled the service. My reasons should interest anyone considering AT&T and iPhone between now and June 1st, especially, and after June 7th. The first date is when AT&T jacks up early termination fees; the second, when Apple is expected to announce the iPhone 4G.

Self-Discipline Outdoes IQ in Predicting Academic Performance in Adolescents

May 25 2010 Published by under Ramblings

This is a fascinating read…

Highly self-disciplined adolescents outperformed their more impulsive peers on every academic-performance variable, including report-card grades, standardized achievement-test scores, admission to a competitive high school, and attendance. Self-discipline measured in the fall predicted more variance in each of these outcomes than did IQ, and unlike IQ, self-discipline predicted gains in academic performance over the school year.

WTF?! Twitter integration coming to OnStar! Cummon! Really?

May 20 2010 Published by under Ramblings

Cummon… do people really want Twitter integration with Onstar? That seems like its going too far…

β€œWhile in your vehicle, you can use OnStar to submit and retrieve tweets (messages) via your Twitter account. Using OnStar’s Voice-Activated Hands-Free Calling system, and having your voice converted into text, you can provide updates which would appear in the β€œWhat are you doing?” section of your Twitter homepage. It is also possible to listen to a tweet that was sent to you by someone else after it has been converted into voice. You can send and receive tweets without having to type or read anything.”

Why doesn’t Apple make their own Flash player like how they made their own web browser?

If the specs are open, why doesn’t Apple just make their own player?

Its definitive – high fructose corn syrup is bad for you

I can’t wait until I can get all my sodas with real cane sugar again… yum!

The back-to-back, double whammy announcements that PepsiCo (PEP) is ditching high fructose corn syrup in Gatorade along with the results of a scathing new study from researchers at Princeton make it official β€” allies of the controversial sweetener have lost the war.
