USAToday: Apple loses some of its magic touch with iOS 7

Seems that major media outlets may finally be seeing beyond the Apple distortion field, and calling IOS 7 out of the cloudy mist.  I stated in an earlier post how dreadful IOS 7 was on appearance alone.  Now USA Today notes the problems stacking up since it's release on September 18th of this year.
Draining batteries, dropping Wi-Fi and spotty Bluetooth connections are getting big boos across discussion boards at Apple's own support communities. Some apps are working poorly or slowly, the interface is harder to use for some people, and game players have also found faults.

Will Apple fix the pastel color from the 60's flashback, ala technicolor dreamcoat, that has washed through the corporation full of hippies?  We can only join hands, sing, and hope so.

Star Trek: Classic Trek Revived

Seems that with each episode that Paramount creates, they get further from the original artistry and direction that Star Trek storied by Gene Roddenberry.  If you yearn for the great stories, strong characters, and focus n acting instead of gratuitous special effects that seem out of place, then here are 2 fan sites that have shown the Classic Trek is still worth watching.

Star Trek Continues, and Start Trek Phase 2, The New Voyages, are fantastic examples of what Paramount should consider, bringing back Classic Trek in a revival unparalleled in modern Cinematography.

Check out each site for full length episodes, vignettes that are sure to please, and desktops and information for all fans.

iPhone IOS 7 versus IOS 6

Take a look at the side by side comparison.  I ask you, truly... which looks better?  I must say up front, I don't own an iPhone, but was looking for a deal.  I won't be getting an iPhone now.  I will not even consider it if I have to get IOS7.  IOS6 had nice 3D shadows, and 3D icons.  A great look and feel.  That is all gone for speed I guess, ala Windows 8.  Shame, of all the boneheaded things to do, NEVER follow behind Windows 8, and Microsoft's screw ups.  It just goes to show that Apple without Jobs is DOOMED!  Apple must be full of group think and a bunch of robots.  I give them 5 years before the iTower starts to crumble.

How the Great Pyramids Were Built - Discovered by Jean-Pierre Houdin

Jean - Pierre Houdin has discovered how the Great Pyramids were built.  KHUFU's pyramid, which is the largest, was built from the inside out, using a 7 % ramp along the outer edges.  Then a pulley system was used in the great center chamber, and evidence shows the theory to be correct.  I myself have stated amongst friends that it is preposterous that slaves built the pyramids, this theory supports the idea that skilled dedicated workers actually were paid and hired to build the Pyramids.  In the outer areas, well fed skeletal remains support my statement.  The entire theory is brilliantly simple, and is easily acceptable as the true theory on how the Pyramids were built.  Fascinating!

Rush Limbaugh Runs America - says Barack Obama

The president of the United States seems to think that I'm something more than relevant, seems to think that I'm something more than an entertainer.  The president has blamed me more than he blamed Boehner or McConnell or anybody else in the Republican organizational chart.  The president says the Excellence in Broadcasting Network is the single most powerful force in Republican/conservative politics today!

CultTVMan News on Batman Adam West Moebius Kit

There will be a Batman kit coming from Moebius Models that was shown at the San Diego Comic Con.  This is scheduled for the 4th quarter of 2013 according to CULTTVMAN Fantastic Modelling.   The image shown is a painted concept of what the kit may look like.  Jeff Yagher sculpted this model to drum up interest.  I would say Kudos, we are interested.  I hope they move forward on producing this model kit.  I have seen garage kits modified to Adam West's likeness, but this is the best.

Ford F-150 Tremor for 2014 - Finally Worth a Look!

Finally Ford will deliver a sport truck worth looking at. The Tremor for 2014 is a very nice looking stock F-150. Look at the images from this Motortrend article to see the new center stack, which is my favorite mod. The old center stack was UGLY and scattered. One major flaw is that the V6 ecoboost will dominate the truck. It may be a good engine, but give us something closer to the Dodge Hemi = Performance!

Star Trek Shuttle Restored - Like NEW!

The Galileo 7, a life-sized prop used as a shuttlecraft in the original “Star Trek” TV series in the 1960s, was christened after being completely restored by the business after months of work on Saturday afternoon. The prop is 24 feet long, 14 feet wide and weighs more than 3,000 pounds.
Looks like this is an amazing transformation. I read this several years ago, and this shuttle prop was a mess. It took real money, effort, and dedication to get this back to original glory! Congratulations!

Apple's Past Mistakes Could Be a Sign Of Things To Come.

One has to wonder what Apple was thinking when they created these bombshells. MacWorld shows us the largest mistakes Apple has made since their inception. Something to consider, they are doing really well now, but Apple has a hard headed nature to it, almost condescending. They don't make what customers want, they force customers to buy what they make. Sometimes the results work, sometimes they don't. Read this interesting article from MacWorld.

New Look for Weblinksnewsletter

It is quite apparent that the look and feel has changed for Weblinksnewsletter.  My old Blue.Green template has gone and replaced with a more modern site with modern features.  Not sure what mileage I will get from it, but it is still nice to see a change.  Hope you like it!  Not the Batman peel back in the top right hand corner - Schweet!

Windows 8 - Why you should hold off.

Adrian from ZDnet says: With the introduction of Windows 8, Microsoft removed the Start button, the Start menu, and pushed the desktop into the background. Were these changes too much for users who'd spent decades getting used to how Windows worked? Read More...

I say that Windows 8 at first glance runs well, is easy to use if your apps are on the tiles already, and yes, very snappy.  What I don't like is the kludgy fat finger - non precision interface.  Fingers are nice for big blocks and 1st grade pencils, but the mouse pointer is a precision device, not a blob.  I also dislike the way that the most useful settings lack easy paths to the advanced settings.  Windows 8 and yes, even Windows 7, make you dig deep to find advanced settings.  Power users beware.  Advanced settings should be accessible via a one stop shop screen or app/library.  Why all the hunting?

I wonder why the Start Button was pulled from the Windows 8 desktop?  Why couldn't Windows 8 have both the tiles and the Start Button, and why didn't Microsoft allow it's users to choose?  Makes you wonder how they tested the interface, if they did at all.  Remember Windows 95 supposedly went through extensive usability testing?  Windows 8 was tested by 10 programmers who like smart phones. Did they even test on PCs?

Welsh Remodeling Closed for Good - Out of Business - Good Bye!

Welsh Construction Remodeling, LLC
3901 E Monument St Baltimore, MD 21205‎
‪(410) 732-1360‬   welsh49.com

Welsh Remodeling has reportedly gone out of business.  My wife and I dealt with them 5 + or more years back, and the experience was horrible.  The workers did a pretty good job, we had windows done, and siding.  Windows were great - great guys who did a great job, especially on my front window, took special time to do a great job.  Siding guys were lazy, and didn't want to put the porch lights back on, or my house numbers they knocked off.  They would hammer or hit them off the house with force, they said it was my problem - they just do siding.  NO you took them down, get your electrician up here to put them back on.  I ended up doing it myself.  Incompetent!  I had a whole list of issues, and their manager treated me with NO respect.  One of my requests was to have caulk applied to a power cable that went through the siding.  I asked several times, so the manager came a few weeks later and put a HUGE gob of caulk on the spot (3 inches thick).  Just to teach me a lesson.  Well what comes around goes around, sorry the good workers lost their jobs, but Welsh stunk and deserved to go under.  Many customers got work done, and think that it was good, but if you had an issue they didn't make it right, and didn't respect the customer.  It was just a matter of time.  No warranties will be honored now, so lets see over the long haul if they remain happy.  I filed a BBB complaint, but they did nothing, BBB basically worthless too!

New Toyota Tundra 2014

"Seven years is a long time in the automotive industry -- and, it now seems, the full-size truck market. We've watched Ford introduce twin-turbocharged engines, Ram roll out rear coil springs and active aerodynamic touches, and GM recently completely overhauled both the Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra. Toyota, however, has done virtually nothing to amend its Tundra since it debuted in 2005 -- but that changes with the 2014 Tundra."

Arms Victory for 2nd Amendment - No Arms to States that Restrict Citizens!

A growing number of firearm and firearm-related companies have stated they will no longer sell items to states, counties, cities and municipalities that restrict their citizens' rights to own them.

"The Federal Government and several states have enacted gun control laws that restrict the public from owning and possessing certain types of firearms...If a product that we manufacture is not legal for a private citizen to own in a jurisdiction, we will not sell that product to a law-enforcement agency in that jurisdiction."

Listen to what Obama is doing, Ronald Reagan knew!

Want to see how Socialist Obama is simply re-reading the same old nonsense? Ronald Reagan spoke out about the same exact liberal and socialist principles that Obama's plans create. Poverty. This is a long one, but worth watching. Take note how the struggles then are the same struggles today, and how the Socialists are using the same tactics to take your money in Taxes and how they are still trying to throw out the Rule of Law. Be careful, it is happening before our eyes.

Stop Gun Violence, Mandatory Gun Ownership!

(NaturalNews) The most appropriate response to gun violence in America is to simply mandate that all able bodied, responsible citizens own guns and be formally trained in their proper use. This is the unconventional impetus behind a new movement known as Project Amendment 28, which follows the lead of Switzerland in trying to promote a peaceful, well-balanced society through compulsory gun ownership.

Though it is sure to generate considerable controversy among those with a political or personal aversion to guns, the concept has already been shown to be a success elsewhere. According to Mike Piccione from The Daily Caller, the man behind Project Amendment 28, the U.S. would do well to mimic the model of the European nation of Switzerland, which has long maintained that all civilians should possess firearms, and also happens to have one of the safest and most desirable societies in Europe.

"[The Swiss] love guns so much that their government picks up the tab to ensure that people own them and form militias," writes Piccione, advocating for a similar approach here in the states. "That's right, government funded civilian militias are the foundation of the most peaceful of European countries."

Switzerland is so comfortable with guns, in fact, that some citizens openly stroll the streets with Sig SG 550s, for instance, a powerful and fully-automatic "assault rifle" that would draw considerable attention here in the U.S. And contrary to what the anti-gun lobby would have you believe, this unique policy of open gun ownershiphas not resulted in a society marked by bloodshed and school shootings.

"[Despite the prevalence of guns, the violent-crime rate is low (in Switzerland): government figures show about 0.5 gun homicides per 100,000 inhabitants in 2010," wrote Helena Bachmann in a recent piece for TIME. "By comparison, the U.S. rate in the same year was about 5 firearm killings per 100,000 people, according to a 2011 U.N. report." America's founders envisioned a similar 'gun culture' in the U.S. What this illustrates, of course, is that guns are not the problem, and that they may actually be the solution. By properly training citizens to use firearms, and then arming them with weapons capable of promoting peace and defending against violence and terrorism, a nation can stand strong and unified. To some, this idea might sound crazy, but it is precisely what the founders envisioned when they penned the Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution with specific provisions for a well regulated militia.

"In order to provide for the security of the individual, state and general well-being of the country, all able bodied individuals shall be required to own one modern firearm and a minimum of ten rounds of associated ammunition," suggests Piccione as the possible wording for a potential 28th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution that would require gun ownership.

"Individuals are required to receive training in marksmanship and operation of firearms... Individuals that are fundamentally opposed to owning a firearm shall be taxed and each year shall register with the government as firearms objectors until age 62 or until proven by a medical doctor to be unable to operate a firearm."

LEAP Motion Controller - Gesture Interface

Welcome to the future, this is truly futuristic, using tech from today. One thing I dislike about touch screen computers, I leave prints all over the thing. Smudges, marks, yuck! But with the Motion Controller, you no longer have to touch the screen, but you are still free from the mouse and trackpads. This gesture control interface has alot of promise if it can deliver as advertised.
