Google could cut deep with a Razr


word should spread like wild-fire that Motorola is bringing back it’s wildly successful Razr – but now as a smartphone.

this should give Motorola something of an “edge”, eh.

the Razr was once the best-selling cellular phone in the world, until Apple came-out with the iPhone in 2007. the Razr quickly followed Palm (acquired by …Motorola), fell out-of-favor, and became virtually extinct.

…that noble device will now be known at the “Droid Razr”.

I had a Motorola Star Tac ($1200 in 1995 or 1996) that was the precognoiter of the Razr. my wife had a Razr. it was a good “chick phone”. a lot of golfers carried them.

if Larry Page and his crew of advertising bandits at Google had the advance thinking that they could or should buy Motorola Mobility with the strategy of dropping the Android Operating System into it and growing their marketing structure around fond memories of yesteryear, I think that’s pretty slick. it’s reasonable to assume that Google has the research capability to identify buying trends and behavior, and this signals future business opportunities.

Google’s deal to acquire Motorola Mobility for roughly $12 billion is not done yet, but analysts have already “baked” some forecasting into Google’s strike price. but, I see this as a good idea, and will be good for shareholders (I like Google any day over $302 and $475). …maybe less so for end-users. never mind that, for now.

I suspect that women, in particular, will like the new Razr, as it fits in their cosmetic and cocktail bags and skinny jeans. and, golfers.

more later.

peace be to my Brothers and Sisters.

Golf: A Game of Extraordinary Courage


This, only just in, from out there:

A man who used several different bent sticks to hit a ball to an area comprised of very short grass surrounding a hole in the ground was praised for his courage Monday after he used a somewhat smaller stick to gently roll the ball into the aforementioned hole in fewer attempts than his competitors.

“What guts, what confidence,”

ESPN commentator Scott Van Pelt said of the man, who was evidently unable to carry his sticks himself, employing someone else to hold the sticks and manipulate the flag sticking out of the hole in the ground while he rolled the ball into it.

“You clearly have to be so brave, so self-assured, so strong mentally to [roll a ball into a hole in the ground]. Amazing.”

On a more serious note… The man in question apparently hurt his knee during this grueling activity that brings into stark focus man’s triumph of will over pain.

Peace be to my Brothers and Sisters.

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.
