Newfie Makes iPhone App

Matt Smyth, 28, of St. John’s, N.L. can't understand what is wrong with this seal clubbing app. It was rejected by Apple. Hat tip to the Toronto Star



I guess seal hunting games are one more reason why Adobe Flash is better than Apple. You can go here to play Flash seal hunting games.

Dignation Proves iPad Wifi Sucks

Ironic that Kevin Rose looses his wifi connection on his iPad (Alex Albreit keeps his on his laptop). In defence of Apple, the ridiculous iPad case may have something to do with it.

A Tale of Two Cities p3

of the law fired blunderbusses in among them, loaded with rounds of shot and ball; thieves snipped off diamond crosses from the necks of noble lords at Court drawing-rooms; musketeers went into St. Giles's, to search for contraband goods, and the mob fired on the musketeers, and the musketeers fired on the mob, and nobody thought any of these occurrences much out of the common way. In the midst of them, the hangman, ever busy and ever worse than useless, was in constant requisition; now, stringing up long rows of miscellaneous criminals; now, hanging a housebreaker on Saturday who had been taken on Tuesday; now, burning people in the hand at Newgate by the dozen, and now burning pamphlets at the door of Westminster Hall; to-day, taking the life of an atrocious murderer, and to-morrow of a wretched pilferer who had robbed a farmer's boy of sixpence.

   All these things, and a thousand like them, came to pass in and close upon the dear old year one thousand seven hundred and seventy-five. Environed by them, while the Woodman and the Farmer worked unheeded, those two of the large jaws, and those other two of the plain and the fair faces, trod with stir enough, and carried their divine rights with a high hand. Thus did the year one thousand seven hundred and seventy-five conduct their Greatnesses, and myriads of small creatures -- the creatures of this chronicle among the rest -- along the roads that lay before them.

A Tale of Two Cities p2

which, strange to relate, have proved more important to the human race than any communications yet received through any of the chickens of the Cock-lane brood.

   France, less favoured on the whole as to matters spiritual than her sister of the shield and trident, rolled with exceeding smoothness down hill, making paper money and spending it. Under the guidance of her Christian pastors, she entertained herself, besides, with such humane achievements as sentencing a youth to have his hands cut off, his tongue torn out with pincers, and his body burned alive, because he had not kneeled down in the rain to do honour to a dirty procession of monks which passed within his view, at a distance of some fifty or sixty yards. It is likely enough that, rooted in the woods of France and Norway, there were growing trees, when that sufferer was put to death, already marked by the Woodman, Fate, to come down and be sawn into boards, to make a certain movable framework with a sack and a knife in it, terrible in history. It is likely enough that in the rough outhouses of some tillers of the heavy lands adjacent to Paris, there were sheltered from the weather that very day, rude carts, bespattered with rustic mire, snuffed about by pigs, and roosted in by poultry, which the Farmer, Death, had already set apart to be his tumbrels of the Revolution. But that Woodman and that Farmer, though they work unceasingly, work silently, and no one heard them as they went about with muffled tread: the rather, forasmuch as to entertain any suspicion that they were awake, was to be atheistical and traitorous.
   In England, there was scarcely an amount of order and protection to justify much national boasting. Daring burglaries by armed men, and highway robberies, took place in the capital itself every night; families were publicly cautioned not to go out of town without removing their furniture to upholsterers' warehouses for security; the highwayman in the dark was a City tradesman in the light, and, being recognised and challenged by his fellow-tradesman whom he stopped in his character of "the Captain," gallantly shot him through the head and rode away; the mall was waylaid by seven robbers, and the guard shot three dead, and then got shot dead himself by the other four, "in consequence of the failure of his ammunition:" after which the mall was robbed in peace; that magnificent potentate, the Lord Mayor of London, was made to stand and deliver on Turnham Green, by one highwayman, who despoiled the illustrious creature in sight of all his retinue; prisoners in London gaols fought battles with their turnkeys, and the majesty

A Tale of Two Cities

THE PERIOD

   IT WAS the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness, it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity, it was the season of Light, it was the season of Darkness, it was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair, we had everything before us, we had nothing before us, we were all going direct to Heaven, we were all going direct the other way -- in short, the period was so far like the present period, that some of its noisiest authorities insisted on its being received, for good or for evil, in the superlative degree of comparison only.
   There were a king with a large jaw and a queen with a plain face, on the throne of England; there were a king with a large jaw and a queen with a fair face, on the throne of France. In both countries it was clearer than crystal to the lords of the State preserves of loaves and fishes, that things in general were settled for ever.
   It was the year of Our Lord one thousand seven hundred and seventy- five. Spiritual revelations were conceded to England at that favoured period, as at this. Mrs. Southcott had recently attained her five-and- twentieth blessed birthday, of whom a prophetic private in the Life Guards had heralded the sublime appearance by announcing that arrangements were made for the swallowing up of London and Westminster. Even the Cock-lane ghost had been laid only a round dozen of years, after rapping out its messages, as the spirits of this very year last past (supernaturally deficient in originality) rapped out theirs. Mere messages in the earthly order of events had lately come to the English Crown and People, from a congress of British subjects in America:

Canadian History of the Mobile eBook

This guy is no Steve Jobs, but he does supply us with some of the background with regards to recent history of Chapters-Indigo's foray into ebooks.


The main thing I learned was that Kobo is an anagram for book. Hopefully, this will help me remember what the app is called on my iPhone.


I use the Stanza, Kindle and Kobo ebook iPhone readers. Stanza usually has the best section, as it is an app that allows access to many ebook stores. Kindle ebooks are usually cheaper, as they don't charge Canadian sales tax.


But when Kobo has the monopoly on the Canadian rights...

Americans love Crystal and Charline of Windows 7 ads

  • 18:20 According to Google Insights, pizza is more popular in Canada than in any other country. #

iPad Owners are More Likely to Vote for the NDP

Browsing the tweets on the lists of the 2500 or so iPad early adopters that I follow, I've struggled to find any trends that would justify the time I spent creating them.

You can browse these people's tweets yourselves, but to save you some time, here is my analysis: 

-95% male. You'd swear the USA was Saudi Arabia or that this was 1994 when only men used the Internet. iPad early adopters usually have their own penis
-Ages vary. The iPad craze clearly isn't generated by people in their teens. Nor is it by Baby Boomers. Although both groups are represented. Based on pictures, I'd say the average age is in early 30s. But 20 and 40 somethings are well represented.
-Urban. That's where the money is (and the people), so that's not surprising. But don't rule out small towns and far suburbs, they now have iPad owners too, just not as many.
-West coast. Probably perceptive selection on my part (and time of day/night I created my lists), but I detect that the iPad is more popular in places like San Fransisco and Seattle than say, Philadelphia and Baltimore.
-Needed for job. Many of the iPad early adopters earn their living, at least in part, thanks to computers and the Internet. In San Jose, you have the usual software suspects. In New York City, you have plenty of media workers.

That does it for the obvious/objective remarks. Take the following with a grain of salt:

-Apolitical. Without realizing, you may have pointcasted yourself into a very political corner of the Internet. The iPad owner isn't obsessed with politics. But based on the few "political" tweets, I'd say that generally, they lean to the left.
-White. There are Blacks that now have an iPad, but they are far fewer than the 250 it would have taken to reflect in my sampling their position in the USA. It would be interesting to see a racial breakdown of Twitter use. But based on the infamous hashtags that regularly trend, there are plenty of Blacks on Twitter. 
-There are 60 million people in the USA that have Spanish as a first language. I'd be willing the wager some serious cash that their demographic position isn't reflected among iPad owners.
-Educated. This observation is probably the most subjective of them all, but based on the quality and subjects of the tweets, I'd guess that most iPad owners also have a university degree. But at the other extreme, this isn't the PHD crowed. People got mighty excited at the prospect of watching ABC and Netflix movies on their new iPad. 

Man, that was the longest blog post I've made in a long time. To be honest, it was to justify the title. And the idea for the title came from http://twitter.com/Prog_Blog that conveniently lists the titles of recent blog posts on Progressive Bloggers. To my shock, only one member posted about the iPad all weekend.

If you believe in democracy and the importance of a well informed public, you believe in the Internet. The iPad is a tool that will bring the Internet to the couch. iPad owners won't all be reading the New York Times and the Huffington Post, but there is hope that there are enough well written Arabic Wikipedia articles to stop them from letting their government murder a suspected witch. Even in Saudi Arabia.
