The US federal government went on the offensive today and took control of 307 sport domains. Is it just a coincidence that the Super Bowl is happening in 4 days? OF COURSE NOT! This is the problem that hundreds of thousands of internet users have been speaking out against. Big content companies control the government. They speak out against certain domains and the feds jump right on them without any thought or due process. One surprising detail about today’s seizures was that .TV domains were seized. Many people including myself thought that these were untouchable domains for the US government since .TV belongs to islands of Tuvalu. However they are run and operated by a US based company called Verisign. So they do in fact fall under the control of the US government.
Samsung will release a gigantic phone to the United States on February 19th on AT&T. The Note comes with a 5.3 inch screen which some say is to big for a phone. I however say it is the perfect size for Samsung to come out with for the US market. Right now you have so many Android phones being released. All of which look and act the same. Sure the software differs from manufacturer to manufacturer but the actual size and appearance is very similar. The Galaxy Note kicks all the rest of the phones to the side and says “Look at me world. I’m a phone and my screen real estate is bigger than yours!”.
Last week a short 10 second clip surfaced of Matthew Broderick doing his Ferris Bueller character. My hope for a Ferris Bueller sequel were quickly crushed when you realize he is doing it for a commercial. Well it turns out that the commercial is for the Honda CR-V where Matthew Broderick plays himself. Even though we all know what character he is emulating. Here is the Honda commercial. Everything is awesome about it except the whole Honda CR-V thing. Ferris Bueller would never be caught dead in a CR-V.
Over my life on the internet one thing is always true. I jump around a lot. When I look back at my interests they are always changing month to month. What 1st got me started on the internet way back in 1998 was wrestling. Doing fan sites and rumor stories. 14 years has past and I’ve gone through so many phases like most of you.
I abandoned blogging and videos 2 years ago. Stopped taking pictures over a year ago. Pretty much neglected Twitter for a while and stopped doing anything social when it came to networking. I threw myself into consuming content on the internet but not creating it. Well those days are coming to a close. After much evaluation the time has come to start creating content again for the masses.
The first step is this blog. A sad thing happened with GoDaddy and all my previous blog posts were all deleted and GoDaddy wanted to charge me a few hundred dollars to restore my files. Unfortunately Mr. Smojo was not smart enough to actually BACK UP HIS FILES!!!! So this blog is starting fresh. Starting brand spanking new which maybe is a good thing. Once again this blog will be for everything that matters to me. Whether it be sports, android, or how MySpace will once again rule the world! (Haha that blog post will never happen thankfully).
Another 2 wonderful things I want to get back into are photography and video. For a very long time I was taking lots of pictures and doing short little videos. One day that all stopped. My camera just sat on my desk collecting dust while the battery sat in its charger. No reason for the stoppage, it just lost my interest. What I remember though is really enjoying it which is why it will soon be resumed.
I’ve found myself stuck in a rut this past year and I believe this is a solution to removing myself from this rut.
