Nobody Here but us Lemmings.

More Book Delays, still can't upload my photos from my Canon Power Shot Camera onto Apple Snow Leopard, FIVE MONTHS HELD HOSTAGE BY MAC!

The title says it all. I upgraded my mac to snowleopard and now I can't upload photos to my canon image browser software. Amazingly enough, the Apple I-photo software offers NO WAY to super impose words over the photo.

As anyone who has seen the prior photos I have created, they ALL have text on them. Costco has joined on the consumer fraud by continuing to sell canon powershot cameras in their store with the canon packaging that states the cameras work with macs.

If a camera's own proprietary software WON'T WORK on an computer platform, than the camera is being sold as an incomplete package. I learned a long time ago that archiving a library in master location is the simplest way to create a work flow. I refuse to bend from that principle.

I have found over and over that the digital world is all about destroying solid, steadfast rules in exchange for playing things fast, easy, and changeable to maximize profits even if it means destroying how people were already using their products.

Parallels can be made between our dysfunctional economy and punk companies like Apple that are too big to care.

Don't forget, the Cat Who Ate Chase Bank, the book, coming out in early 2010.

The Problem With America's Debt - Glenn Beck - - Gasp, Glenn Beck compares China to Chase Bank, makes no sense.

Posted using ShareThis

Glenn Beck does not understand the real damage that consumer debt is creating. He thinks we would be "better off" owing Chase Bank rather than China. This is just nuts. We would be better off incentivizing the consumer credit card debt by removing the interest rate charges for any consumer who is committed to PAYING DOWN THEIR CREDIT CARD DEBT.

Everybody wins, even the Chinese. But Glenn Beck falls short with his analysis. The alleged tea bagger could not bring himself to admit that national banks have destroyed local economies.

I will give some credit to Glenn Beck for spotlighting that the Barack Obama is holding on to part of the stimulus money so that the democrats can use it just before the next set of elections this fall to seed Wall Street and possibly electrify regions of the country with stimulus money.

But Glenn Beck loses the credit, and then some, when he has the gall to say consumers would be better off owing Chase Bank rather than China.
