FOR SALE (cheap!): Alabama Voter Information. Cost? Only 1¢

Posted by Warm Southern Breeze on Thursday, September 13, 2012

Here’s another item from our “Stupid things governmental idiots in Alabama do” files.

When I registered to vote, I refused to give my phone number.

After all, it’s not required by law.

Isn’t it nice to know that you’re valued so little by the state’s officials?

Alabama sells voter information, for one penny

By Rena Havner Philips, Press-Register

MOBILE, Alabama — For one penny, a political candidate, or even a private company, can buy from the state the name, address, even cellular telephone number if a person submitted it, of any registered voter.

And for $30,000, it can get Read the rest of this entry »

The Not Too Tall Tale of the Tail -or- The Shortened Tail’s Tale

Posted by Warm Southern Breeze on Tuesday, June 26, 2012

I don’t much write about myself on this blog, and there are several reasons for that, not the least of which is that, in some way, I don’t think many people care… either about me, my life, or anything else other than what is beyond the end of their noses. And yet, I may be wrong.

Call it skeptical, if you will, or perhaps even cynical, but to my way of thinking, there are many more things which are far more interesting in life. And of those things which are interesting, I am probably least among them. For those primary reasons, I do not write about myself, or my experiences. Further, I suppose that what I think, and how I feel is adequately expressed in the thoughts that do proliferate on this blog. Besides, I don’t have to be talking about myself all the time. I think that’s a rather healthy self-perspective – to not be self-consumed, but to be more concerned with others, than with self. The word for the antithesis of that characteristic is narcissism. And I am definitely not that.

Be it right, wrong, or indifferent, it’s what I’ve done. And for the greatest part, I probably won’t change that – though I perhaps could, to some extent. We’ll see.

However, this time, I’d like to take a brief respite, or departure from that approach, and share something that, for one reason or another, continues to touch my heart. So for a moment, please indulge me.

Today, I was Read the rest of this entry »

Why is your cellular service so crummy?

Posted by Warm Southern Breeze on Tuesday, February 7, 2012

In writing to a friend about telecommunications – starting with the demise of the pay phone – I wrote “I know how ya’ feel.

“How some ever… we were told about how these things might change as far back as ten years ago (or thereabouts), or so.”

I began to explain that we’re now undergoing is a national transformation – albeit one that the telecoms are hating/loving. The problem is, that the dinosaur telecoms are being driven toward revolution by the technology. They’re not leading, they’re being moved by force.

And that force is the people – the market. And yet, there’s a problem with being moved by force. And I do not refer to force in a mild way. I refer to force as ‘when-push-comes-to-shove’ type of force.

The seeming ubiquity of such low-cost technology is Read the rest of this entry »

Why the idea of “SMALLER GOVERNMENT” is a myth

Posted by Warm Southern Breeze on Thursday, February 2, 2012

I never cease to be amazed at the silliness, tomfoolery, and outright stupidity – that’s being kind to so describe such behavior – that some elected fools… er, officials assert.

The Seat of Government

For example, one of the most popular, well-known and oft-repeated mantras of the TEA Partiers and other radical Republicans make is one of “smaller government.”

Allow me to be uncompromisingly forthright – also known as wholly blunt: Read the rest of this entry »

iPhone Screenshots – Excessive Temperature Warning

Posted by Warm Southern Breeze on Friday, November 11, 2011

How do you know if your iPhone is too hot?

If you can’t hold it in your hand?

No.

Developers obviously considered that issue, and created a screenshot just to let users know if the phone overheated.

Undoubtedly, there are numerous other iPhone screenshots about which many – save developers – are unaware.

Here is another.

Apple’s iOS inherently more secure

Posted by Warm Southern Breeze on Tuesday, February 8, 2011

Once again, Apple Computer rises to the top!

How?

Their iOS does NOT use Flash.

McAfee reported that Adobe software products such as Flash and Acrobat were the “clear choice of malware authors and cybercriminals.” Read the rest of this entry »
