Quante Wright Out Of Jail

Being away from the notebook most of the day for two days caused me not to update until now …

Judge releases Quante Wright, former gang member, from jail

Wright must wear an electronic monitoring ankle bracelet so that federal probation officers can keep tabs on his whereabouts, Mordue ruled.

After serving six years in prison, Wright went to Bryant & Stratton, earned an associate’s degree, and got a job selling cars for Lowery Brothers Chrysler Jeep. Syracuse.com / The Post-Standard published a story about Wright’s successes on June 14. He was fired by the car dealership the next day.

The Past Casts A Long Shadow And Shit Is All Fucked Up And Still Bullshit

Previously I posted about Quante Wright, who was a natural salesman with a criminal record who turned his life around. But due to his criminal record, he was fired by a car dealership employing him after a success story about him appeared in the local media. See: The Past Casts A Long Shadow.

The story gets even worse: Quante Wright, former gang member fired by car dealer, sent back to jail

Napoleon Hill: Did He Ever Meet Andrew Carnegie?

Thanks to Sean T. Carter in Comments for pointing me to this.

Napoleon Hill – the Lies about Andrew Carnegie

Had Carnegie wanted a major study of ‘success’, he could employ the best, most authoritative minds in the business, and demand they report within months. He was an old man in 1908 — why invite a nonentity to undertake unpaid research conscious he probably wouldn’t live to see the results twenty years later? Carnegie was decisive. He got things done.

This is a detailed analysis of written statements made by Napoleon Hill that simply don’t reconcile with one another and which contradict the historical record.

There’s only one way to tell if Hill ever met Carnegie: Find Carnegie’s Guest Book.

Asus Zenfone 2 With Six-Inch Screen

Liliputing: Asus Zenfone 2 with a 6 inch display (ZE600KL)

Mobile Geeks: ASUS ZenFone 2 mit Snapdragon 615 und Laser-Autofokus im Hands on-Video [Google Translate]

The Asus Zenfone 2 ZE600KL has the same design as its smaller siblings, but it has a 6 inch screen. Oddly the screen is a 720p display, which means the phone has a bigger, but lower resolution display than the version currently sold in the US.

While the phone looks like the smaller Zenfone models, the screen isn’t the only thing that’s different. This model has a Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 octa-core, 64-bit processor instead of an Intel Atom chip. And it has a laser auto-focus feature for its 13MP rear camera.

Asus will offer the phone with 2GB or 3GB of RAM and 16GB or 32GB of storage. You can also remove the rear cover to access a microSD card slot.

Well, that’s … an odd collection of choices to create a six-inch phone.
