I was really worried we weren’t going to have an NBA season this year but Santa Claus came to town with a nice holiday present! And my Bulls facing the Lakers at Staples , can’t beat that!

The really exciting part is that Sprint partnered with the NBA to give an official NBA app to us Sprint subscribers. I’ve only checked the app a couple of times but so  far so good.

The app offers exclusive NBA content with videos, news and radio access to games! I love that you can select your favorite team and when you open the app, it welcomes you to your fav teams “stuff”. The one time I tested the radio for a preseason game, it was quick to connect and it seemed pretty fluid. Honestly, I loved the NFL Sprint app before Verizon stole the contract. Sooooo I bet you guys will love it too! Check it out!

During my absence from the blog, the Android Market reached 10 billion downloads. 10 billion downloads!! Within a 6 month period alone, the Market had 4 billion downloads. This feat is a testament to the engine that could with the Android platform. I bet if I counted how many apps I have downloaded from the Market since I’ve joined the Android platform, some people’s mouth would drop open. Developers used to first create an app for iOS (iPhone) then move on to Android. However my friend, those times are changing rather quickly. Now, I am not talking about profitability here. That’s a whole another subject for another day. Check the numbers Google was nice enough to display for us here and broke it down a bit for y’all. Enjoy!

Questions?

My posts on this blog are not meant to be political in any form or fashion.  As a matter of fact, I have no affiliations with any  party or candidate.  I don’t mean to be wishy-washy. Some I like more than others but for the most part they are the same and end up being as such.  I have no formula about how I post.  One thing I know is, I am finding my stride.  Just like I did with my Orioles blog.  This is a continuation of my previous post, regarding how we are humans and not robots.  Come to think of it, a lot of my posts are roughly on the same wavelength.   I write a whole bunch of different verbiage but the theme is the same.  And it’s meant to be positive.  Technology had a big hand in how the Occupy Wall Street and subsequent groups began, developed, and eventually ended.

We Are Not Machines

I can’t stop watching this scene from The Great Dictator.

Charlie Chaplin was the king of Silent films, but this was, in my opinion, some of the greatest dialogue ever!  What is even more fascinating, is that this was filmed in 1940.   This was before the end of World War 2, Martin Luther King, the Civil Rights Movement, Malcolm X, the fall of the Berlin Wall, before the Internet, and before 9/11.

This was over 70 years ago and is all-so-important, vital, and relevant today.   So what does this have to do with technology?  Everything.

Since I was in grade school, I have always questioned things.   Hard to believe that anyone would find anything in their textbooks questionable or misleading?  Call it intuition, delusion, or whatever.

There has always been a group of people that find something wrong with our system, our government, and the status quo.  That’s a whole bunch of terms for the same thing.

Laziness is Not An Excuse

It’s Projection 101 from yours truly once again.

We are in the holiday season and that will lend itself to lethargic and lackadaisical behavior.    We eat a lot, drink a lot, and spend money we may not have on things we don’t need.  Not always but generally speaking.   This is a blog so I will have time for specifics later.  Just not in this post.

Does technology and all it’s conveniences help aid in you laziness?   Has it made you passive?  In a sense it has spoiled me and spoiled many of us.  I expect things to get done faster.  And I expect to do as little work as possible.   If it only takes 10 seconds then I want to it to take 9 and 8.  I am never satisfied.  If my laptop lags, I get upset.  I expect it to always work all-of-the-time.  If my Smartphone takes too long to find a number or to text someone, I get angry and curse the world.  Why are the numbers and letters taking too long (four seconds instead of one) to pop op on my screen.  Sounds healthy right?
