My 2011 Is Your 2014

WARNING: From time to time, I get really pissed off and must do a Very Angry Post. This is one of those posts. Stop reading now if you don’t like such posts.

Here, 2011: Apple’s Next Greedy Move: Exclusivity

2014: Apple, Google offering game developers special incentives for exclusivity

Now just STFU when you find what I write hard to believe.

You are the idiot. Not me.

The shit I have to eat from people who can’t think…

Today I’m getting shit over Chinese tablets. Come back in three to five years when practically everyone is using a Chinese-brand tablet.

Google Books Advanced Search

Chinese Livestreams Make Money

Lucrative Stardom in China, Using a Webcam and a Voice [If paywalled, plop the title into Google; could work.]

Addiction Runs The World

Coincidentally, I was thinking about how the goal of every business is not to have customers, but addicts.

And then I realized that as far as Western Civilization is concerned, commerce has really been about nothing but addiction.

Some day I might develop this thought further. But not right now.

The Most Powerful Tool In The World

This is something I’m certain Napoleon Hill would have added to his “Magic Ladder” had he paid a bit more attention to the actual anatomy of industry.

It’s a tool to ensure the completion of any project, whether for work or for life. But it’s hardly ever used and whenever it’s suggested or revealed, it’s usually dismissed or ridiculed.
