Comes before us the headline in the Financial Times technology pages that “Internet-enabled TV’s to feature ‘app stores’“. The FT story they goes on to give some insight to the Consumer Electronic Show (CES in the biz) going on in Las Vegas.
What seems to be coming in a marriage of your television with a computer and services like 3D movies, social networking, news browsing, other internet-powered services and so forth.
I continue to be stunned by the foolishness of humans: Am I the only guy who has noticed that software developers seem bent on creating another level of existence – a kind of ‘mirror of life’ in software? What’s wrong with life out here in the physical world?
If you want a really mid-expanding thought instead of your usual nap in today’s session of Conference Room Follies, go read up on Matryoshka dolls…better known as nested Russian dolls.
The whole Divine Comedy of Universe comes into view when you realize that rather than improve our own consciousness at a group/human level, maybe our whole purpose in the Grand Scheme is to pass knowledge into the physical layer. Question is, is there something bigger than Universe such that Universe is just a shell app? Might there be something like:
Ultraverse which is running a shell app called
Uberverse which is running a shell app called
Universe which is running a shell app called
Humans which now developing a new shell app called
And as software learns to write its own code to expand itself….why ‘thought’ may turn out to be nothing more than a transdimensional tunneling virus, huh?
Hell of a News Tip
Here’s one for a Washington Post or NY Times reporter to sniff around from our anonymous news tips:
Thank you for writing intelligent information that is useful. I have really become tired of the Repeaters, Talking Heads and Arguers. I look forward to reading your article everyday. It is refreshing to not be inundated with propaganda.
Today’s article brought something to mind that I would like to share. (get the Tequila ready) In 1998 President Clinton tried to bomb OB in A training camp. Strange thing is that they all vacated the camp 30 min. before the attack.
I thought this was interesting at the time. Yes, something that just does not seem right. Then a few years ago I heard that there is only one ex-president, ex-head of intelligence organization and long time family friend of the Bins. That invokes his right to receive the daily Intel reports. Yes every morning. Click. Big enough for ya?
Oh? Do ex’s still get the daily? Wonder about exveeps, too….
The Right ‘Billy Jack’ Quote
Yesterday I mentioned the 1971 movie Billy Jack and a pretty good quote that has (to some extent) stuck with me over the years. A reader, realizing that 61-years of accumulated spurious data has dulled my once-precise recall sent in a link to this wonderful resource at the IMDb (Internet Movie Database) which is you scroll down to about line 40 you can pick up the dialog.
Turn’s out Mr. Needscoffee was trying to recall this presact quote that summarizes the deep longing of those of us who just want to sincerely try to live happily ever after…
“Oh, really? Tell me, where is that place? Where is it? In what remote corner of this country-no-entire goddamn planet is there a place were men really care about one another and really love each other? Now, you tell me were such a place is, and I promise you that I’ll never hurt another human being as long as I live.
Nor would I write a critical comment. I feel like thet battery bunny… “Still looking…” but only in a serious way for 39-years….
Down at the WuJo
Ah, to the mat, where reality and woo-woo meet. The latest from the Orb Society shows up:
Got my equipment in and I am seeing objects in the southwest Just outside of vegas , looking to get some good footage over the coming weeks Saw 2 low altitude objects this week , below 5k feet very bright , twice as bright as Jupiter In the video below around 5:17 is a some footage of one of them that came in low and went behind a palm tree and then gone
Seth Orb society
Yeah…interesting video, but get back to us when you can train ‘em to bring coffee. One thing to be aware of if you are doing sky watching is the new NOSS satellite systems which have apparently been deployed. Sample pictures here. Part of the Naval Ocean Surveillance System, seems to piece together that the Navy has its oar in the spy game nowadays in a major way which likely explains by guys like Stan Deyo who used to have access to sea surface temperature anomalies (which might be used for EQ predictions and such) have been shut out by the Navy from real-time data.
Led Astray by GPS Department
Sorry to keep coming back to this topic, but if Elaine & I can be severely misled by our GPS (and I nominally claim to know what I’m doing with electronics, LOL) here’s another story on topic: “Google’s Navigation App Takes a Wrong Turn: Rich Jaroslovsky.”
And it’s a sad commentary on the times when “Bank thieves foiled by GPS-spiked cash.” And wots this? Sony is out with a new camera which seems ideal for those picture-snappers from the Census Bureau : They’re put both a GPS and compass into a new digital camera! I’m still pondering why Census needs my house coordinates, except that as a wild free-thinker, I may need to be carpet bombed some day; freedom can be only so free, don’tcha know. Hmmm….
While the “EU says Europe’s ‘superior’ GPS system on track for 2014“ I sure hope they’re not using GPS to find their way to work.
How Cold is It?
If you have any great/unusual description of how cold it is (aside from the witches mammary or the well-digger’s hemorrhoid medicine receptacle) send ‘em along. 19º outside and only 61º and likely to get even colder.
I’ve got every tube-type ham radio turned on, even the linear amplifier (which sports a couple of 3-500Z’s which contribute a bit of heat. OK, 140 watts to be precise: 14 amps at five volts on the filaments times two and we all know electronics is as simple as PIE [power in watts equals amps (‘i’) times volts (‘e’). Cold P=IE at that.
Weather like this makes me appreciative of humanity’s greatest advancements: Indoor plumbing and tube type radio gear and why cats and dogs get to sit on laps now and then. I may have to throw some anti-freeze in the coffee later on….high risk of brain freeze persists. Still, it’s the kind of weather where you want to throw another cat on the fire….Ooops! See what I mean?

A Simple Tactical Trading Plan for 2010 and $1,000
Having outlined the case for P-3 to arrive in 2010, the next problem is “OK, what to do with that information?” Right. No point having a sense of the future if it is not the basis for appropriate action. So we begin this week with a discussion of my favorite topics when comes time to invest — “casino theory” — and an important corollary I call “index theory”. By combining the two into a short “Options School” I think you’ll find my personal trading plan for 2010 to be pretty interesting in the potential for even a small investor like me. So we begin by exploring ‘casino theory’…

“Live on $10,000″ A Year
With another round of layoffs due to start later this month…a round which will start to axe many of the middle managers who have managed to avoid the HR grenades…might I suggest a preemptive tactical move? Voluntarily dropping your lifestyle back a bit, since we’re all being marched down that road by either circumstances or some out-of-control-PTB types who write checks to Washington lobby and to anti-reformers in California! A good starting point, at least if you’ve still got $10-bucks is my e-book “How to Live on #10,000 a Year…or less!”
It’s an automatic download. It’s written in an information dense style: The whole thing runs about 65 pages, but it gives you a vision of how to not only live on the cheap, but also how to migrate up the economic foodchain if you have a little hustle left… Click here for the index and details.
My commodity broker JB Slear and I have written a simple book to get you started on high density hydroponics. It’s an example of how someone with a little creativity, access to a few ‘dollar stores’ and willing to try out some new farming techniques can grow an amazing amount of produce sin a very small space – like even an apartment balcony (if it gets some sunlight). Sound interesting? It’s just $10 bucks here…
