Oh man what a week. Its been crazy so no time to blog although I've had some great blog ideas recently.
Anyway no time to really chat today either but I just wanted to ask how come no one talked about the earth quake in India/Pakistan? Are we all tradedied out? Or is it that it didn't strike close enough to home.
Did you realize that the homeless from this tragedy may actually outnumber the homeless from the tsunami?
And here's a question I just thought was relevant. What happens to the promised aid when another tragedy strikes. I mean countries have deep pockets but its not limitless so if 10 bil is promised for one tragedy but a greater tragedy arises does that means that they pull out another set of money for the other tragedy or do they sort of cut the first aid package. Just wondering out loud because I saw some reports saying that the promised aid to Grenada last year is still just that a promise in the wake of all the natural disasters we've had this year.
Oh and to follow up my last post on phones I just wanted to take a shot at technology in general. Isn't it funny how we've been conditioned to buy a whole bunch of stuff that is really unnecessary? I was referring to camera and video phones last post. This time its the Ipod which now has video. Don't get me wrong I think the Ipod is hot to death! (And if any of my rich blogging readers feel like giving me some gifts like some other bloggers get I aint going to say no.) Anything music related and I've got to stop for a pause. I also know I'm not spending 300 400 bucks on something that small as long as I've still got a discman to keep me company. But now the apple released an Ipod with video this week. I mean having a micro slim music player is cool but how cool is watching miniscule video? I mean last I checked dudes were showing off big screen tvs, no one wanted to watch your 7 inch screen they want the 52" and those type of I'm in the game experiences where you can almost smell the action.
Ipods with video are for posers cause no one can tell me that you are actually seeing with any real clarity any music video on a 1 or 2 inch screen.
Oh just to set it straight I'm not anti technology. I'm just trying to keep things in perspective. I used to be a true technology junkie but then I had a boss many years ago who was totally anti technology and I actually gleaned some sense from what he was saying. I didn't cross over to his way of thinking but it just put things I perspective so while I keep up on the latest I just usually have to ask myself well is that such a useful thing to have first before I go all goo-goo ga ga over it.
Have a great weekend. I'll try to drop a few blogs next week.
By the way was I the last person to hear about Buju going to court for apparently assaulting some dudes.
