lets keep rolling

January7

I get great questions from my reader.

Sometimes I come up with a few of my own.

Why don’t cell carriers provide rollover megabytes?

We pay for data, but don’t always use it each month.

Think in terms of the way AT&T offers “rollover minutes.” So… Why not data, as well? If it’s a good idea for minutes, why not for data?

Maybe the answer includes the fact that AT&T does not offer unlimited data plans – like Sprint. Another reason why I switched. But, behavior like this, on the part of AT&T is driven, in part, by their current relationship with Apple.

This questions exposes yet another nonsensical greed tactic by the, or a, cellular service provider companies.

Peace be to my Brothers and Sisters.

    Based upon your enthusiasm for Apple, when do you predict they will ship more non-windows units than MS ships Windows 7/8/etc units? When do we reach the psychological (tipping) crossover point and when do we reach the actual numeric crossover point?

    never, actually.

    the best influencers are always in the minority, eh?

    on the other hand, if you define “units” as any product – to include iPads, iPhones, iTVs, etc relative to software (Windows 7), then my answer might be by 2014 (April, in fact).

What’s All This About?

"What am I looking at?", you might wonder.

Lots of stuff.

Meanwhile, here, I discuss events, people and things in our world - and, my (hardly simplistic, albeit inarticulate) views around them.

You'll also learn things about, well, things, like people you need to know about, and information about companies you can't find anywhere else.

So, while I harangue the public in my not so gentle way, you will discover that I am fascinated by all things arcane, curious about those whom appear religious, love music, dabble in politics, loathe the media, value education, still think I am an athlete, and might offer a recipe.

All the while, striving mightily, and daily, to remain a prudent and optimistic gentleman - and, authentic.
