Buzz April 2010: Zuck of Borg

In the month of April, Failbook continued to fail user expectations of desired privacy settings. Mark Zuckerborg, the CEO of Facebook, wants to assimilate everybody’s privacy by default to whatever Zuck of Borg deems it. If you are using Google Buzz, be sure to follow me I’ll follow back. Here are some recent buzz posts from a variety of topics.

  • I feel like I stepped off a time machine, not really sure if it’s Monday or Tuesday, Can you image the jet lag coming off a time machine?
  • If kid doesn’t have his homework, it’s because the dog eat it. If a president sees economic down turns, it’s because of his predecessor. If a blue collar worker has a delay, it’s his coworkers fault. If a astro or quantum physicist makes a mistake or has delays firing up the LHC its because of either time traveling bandits or an invading intergalactic space fleet.
  • Time is a fractal and space is recursive.
  • Chicken doesn’t taste like chicken anymore, it taste more like hormone made plastic corn meal. If chicken does taste like chicken anymore what does everything that used to taste like chicken taste like now?
  • Facebook’s Zuckerborg remind me of Borg version of Pinky and the Brain. “what are we going to do tomorrow night, Zuckerborg?” “The same thing we do every night, try to take over the interwebs with the Like button, resistance is futile.”
  • What a day, I started chilling at University Ave., then shopping at an Chinese antique store, then BBQ in EPA, and now a nap. LOL. Plus nobody I know got killed in South Central L.A. Today was a good day. … Today I didn’t even have to use my A.K. I got to say it was a good day.
  • I want to fast forward to the weekend.
  • Today I drank water from the four corners of the world, Acqua Panna from Italy, Voss from Norway, Fiji from Fiji, and good ol’ tap water from the San Francisco bay area.

Buzz March 2010: iPad Madness

Forget March Madness, all the buzz was about the Apple iPad. If you are using Google Buzz, be sure to follow me I’ll follow back. Here are some recent buzz posts from a variety of topics.

  • Throughout my day I listen to a lot of music and podcasts, right now I enjoying Tiesto’s Club Life podcast. I have like 10 hour long episodes and I have been blasting them non-stop for over a week. What are you listening to?

  • Google’s realtime search results are freaky fast. If you publish a new blog post, jump over to Google and search for your brand new post, it is already been indexed, cached, and showing up on Google’s results. How do they do that?
  • If your body is an instrument, what part of your body needs some fine tuning?
  • Is it just me or are most of the winter Olympic sports just derivative/descended of the same thing event? They all involve going down the mountain in a ski, board, sled, toboggan alone or with up to four other people as fast as possible and then maybe a jump or some tricks in mid-air. Can anyone tell me the difference between the skeleton and the luge other than one is going face first/down the the other is on your back?
