So Brad Sams puts up a story, Daniel Rubino from a rival site questions his sources publicly, then Rubino "confirms" that Sams did not make it up (which is a POS move), and finally Rubino puts up article that just says what Brad Sams said to begin with. Was there nothing else worth covering? Here… Continue reading Tech Journalism In 4 Tweets
These headlines have shown up in my RSS reader over the last few days. I can't argue with any of them. Since the Windows 10 launch it has been obvious the package delivered to users was not ready for prime time. I have had issues with Mail, Edge, and some awful problems with Action Center… Continue reading Windows 10, We Have A Problem….
On Monday morning Microsoft once again took the stage to introduce us to their new lines of Surface. After a rough year 1 Microsoft showed they are not backing down from what they believe are devices that can work for people.

After a public backlash, Komen reinstated the funding to Planned Parenthood. One big… Continue reading Leave Susan G. Komen Foundation On The Sideline
This morning the Susan G. Komen foundation reversed it's decision and will honor its pledge to Planned Parenthood and the thousands of women who have no other means of health care. If some out there question whether Facebook, Twitter, and the rest of social media matter, this is another example that shows the power of… Continue reading Common Sense Wins, Susan G. Komen Foundation Reverses Decision
Yesterday I posted on my Facebook page that the Susan G. Komen Foundation, the group that has "The Race For The Cure" and started the pink ribbon campaign, announced they were cutting all the money they give to Planned Parenthood for mammograms and breast cancer screenings. There is outrage all over the internet that a charity has given in… Continue reading The Real Susan. G. Komen Foundation
