Apples Slips in marketshare…and reveals exclusivity details with AT&T

Apple slips to #3 spot behind Android, and reveals in-depth details about their five-year contract with AT&T. Its taken 3 years to get a solid answer but today Apple revealed that it had signed a 5-year exclusivity deal with AT&T in 2007.  This has all apparently come to light as court documents in the 3 …

Site Move: Update

Ah-hah, it was pretty much about as easy as I thought it would be get the dynamic redirect in.  All links to old posts should work nicely as they will bounce to the same post at the new site. I rock!

Thanks Professa has it’s own host!

FINALLY! I mentioned something about this in early april, and since then have pretty much been quiet on the blog.  After I realized I really liked blogging, and I had FINALLY found the right software to do it with in this whole wordpress deal I also realized that my old web hosting situation just wasn’t …

Bot Attacks!

ThanksProfessa! finally got the attention of some spammers over these last few days.  One of my big concerns is allowing people to comment without having to log-in and deal with an account.  There’s a couple tools I just can’t use because of the way ThanksProfessa! is currently set up due to not having it’s own …

Star Wars Canon: Bridging the old and the new

Speaking of Star Wars… I think I originally got this off of Slashdot.org, although I no longer can find the exact post the source article has been sitting in my bookmarks folder for a while.  This fellow Keith Martin apparently wrote an essay explaining that the only way that the original 3 (middle 3) Star …

George Lucas just killed your sister and raped your mother.

Not really, but close enough.  I can’t quite summon the strength to say anything about this myself, I will let the story speak for itself: Yes, George Lucas is really going there. In the latest attempt to wring every possible cent out of Star Wars, the head Jedi has announced plans to spin off an …

sounds of silence

My apologies for the lack of posts over the last few days, I had a number of stories ready to go exploring race in America and the census, but I got into a discussion with my hosting company about moving ThanksProfessa! to its own hosting account.  Right now the thanksprofessa.com domain simply points to an …

Dead soldier’s father ordered to pay Westboro Baptist Church

This is absolutely and outrageously offensive, and stupid. For decades now the Westboro Baptist Church has run amok with hate speech and public demonstrations that strain the limits of public decency.  I still don’t understand how this country got so fucked up, do you?  How can organizations like the ACLU defend this group’s hate speech …

Santa Fe man hypersensative to electronic devices sues neighbor for Wifi use.

Wow, talk about a crazy neighbor. This is a new one for me, but the Chicago Tribune’s Michael Haederle wrote an article a couple days ago describing the plight of a man from Santa Fe, New Mexico who claims he is hypersensitive to certain frequencies of electromagnetic radiation.  Of course, like any other good American …

50th Anniversay of the Copier (& my tangential ramblings!)

Well, it seems this month marks the 50th Anniversary of the office copier.  It’s a milestone that definitely deserves some attention, as the first copiers revolutionized communication and office work.  Granted, the first copiers clocked in at a bit under 605 lbs and regularly caught on fire, but it was worth it to not have …
