Some of us have short memories given how close the polls are between President Obama and Vice President Biden, and Mitt Romney and Congressman Ryan. Romney and Ryan claim that the President hasn't been cleaning up the multitude of messes... Continue reading

Ugh. The majority of time I spent on next Tuesday's (June 5, 2012) ballot was to figure out 14 people to re/elect to the SFDCCC. Fortunately, just enough of them had a neglegent web presence, which helped me narrow down the field.

Bob, if you're a member of a political party in California, your county central committee makes decisions such as official party endorsements of local candidates and initiatives. They represent your county party members at the party's state central committee, which handles party decisions for California. The party's state central committe in turn represents California party members at the national level. For example, these are the lessor known people who attend state and national party conventions.

The Winter Holiday Hiatus of 2011 turned into a much longer lull, as blogging took a backseat to other activities, and will continue to remain on the backburner. Six years later, the momentum of Steve Jobs has propelled AAPL towards... Continue reading

The Borg finally released a SkyDrive app for Apple's iOS devices, a move they should have made long ago. Microsoft moves like molasses, and sucks at marketing so they have yet to educate the masses about their free cloud storage... Continue reading

The intent behind the Mobile Informational Call Act (H.R.3035) is hopefully less nefarious than—unrelated—SOPA/PIPA. However, MICA's current language creates an even bigger loophole to give telemarketers the ability to robocall people's cell phones in the U.S. A practical ammendment to... Continue reading

One of the few issues that attracts bipartisan support, and priority (thanks to corporate lobbyists) in Congress is the creation of new laws intended to protect content creators of software such as apps, books, movies, music, and more from digital... Continue reading

TiVo is finally back as an option for DIRECTV customers. Unfortunately, TiVo's lengthy absence and stagnation have resulted in trade-offs that DIRECTV highlights on its website. It's too bad TiVo didn't have the cash to buy Hulu because Hulu Plus... Continue reading

Lunch was a success! Need to remember to order more mahi-mahi, shrimp, and spam musubi next time instead of so many beef short ribs. Probably could have had less rice, and more green salad too.

L&L Hawaiian Barbecue is filling and inexpensive fast food. Their "mini" plates are often more than enough for a single serving. Some menu items are healthier than others. It'll be interesting to find out how catering from their San Francisco... Continue reading
