Sure Happy It’s Thursday.
Where has the year gone? Yes it’s September and that means fall is in the air. Ok, not so much fall here as humid and foggy.
This morning’s breaking news is coming from the NFL about the reversal of the DeflateGate, and now Tom Brady gets to play at the start of the season. Thank goodness this has been resolved and the entire minutia matter can disappear.
The other news matter that continues to drone on is Hilary and the continuing saga of her email. I can only think that all news outlets are milking this for all its worth to have daily content. The bottom line of this issue is that Hillary Clinton is in direct violation of 18 USC 793, the Espionage Act. That being said, where is the Grand Jury and or the Department of Justice, to begin prosecution? How long will the American public continue to let this travesty go on?
Baseball season is nearly over and seeing as we’re in the northlands this seems much more like football and hockey country. It will be interesting to see what sort of hockey games we’ll get on the cable here.
Being in the central time zone also gets a different perspective on any sporting events. I’m sure we’ll get all of the Packer games and likely the Vikings as well as both cities are within four hours of us.
This day three of this and I’m working to push through some writers block. There are plenty of other thoughts and ideas roaming around in my head and they are not in any sort of alignment to be able to be put to keyboard and out in the blog. I guess I can continue with the stream of random thoughts and observations and then there are the commentary on current events and such. We shall see.
I’m looking into Google Analytics and how that can assist the blog and get things moving. This is a completely new area for me so bear with me as I try new things out. I’m posting sometimes to both the wordpress site and the mobile Winksite, and we’ll see what sort of overall response comes out of that.
Something interesting in the technology area: Canon printers have a known issue with not printing black ink after a period of time. There are years of posts in a google search regarding this issue and from what I can see, Canon hasn’t bothered to fix the issue. Rather they’ve and some others have posted a fix which involves replacing the print head for your particular machine. Now, were I so inclined and had the free time to embark on just such a task, sure no problem. Given the current state of the economy of printers from any of the big box electronic stores or on line, I’m better off finding a new printer. Also, I’m not sure just how old this printer in the office is, and I’m sure that I can find a fully functional feature rich one that will suite me and the office just fine.
Sure Happy It’s Thursday.
The ads the google is placing at the top of one of my gmail areas are in no way related to anything I’m looking for. Neither are they anything related. Massive #FAIL Google.
Samsung Galaxy Note II
The device has a mind of its own. This morning finds the normal Google search bar and mic graphic at the top of the screen above the time is gone.
Then the Multi window tab which usually sits at the 10 o’clock position will appear and then be missing as well.
Google to open retail stores to compete with Apple Stores. Only to compete with Apple Stores? They completely ignore the Microsoft Store’s across the country. The best thing about Google and their
entry into the retail arena, is that there are plenty of empty store fronts in the shopping malls across the country.
Google to open retail stores to compete with Apple Stores
Google is launching retail stores by the end of the year to sell its own products we’re reporting over at 9to5Google.
