  • Too Many Distractions

    Posted on March 26th, 2011 cwmoore No comments

    I must be getting old and even more lazy than I have been.  But then again, it may be the distractions…..

    I now have a Droid 2 and it has kept me more than occupied for the past two months.  I have installed a lot of apps and, of course, I must know how the work.  All my sundry emails come into the Droid so I get buzzed every few minutes all day.  A lot of my apps deal with sun/moon, marine weather & water conditions, weather conditions and winds.

    I am disappointed the Droid does not play Flash and Java via the browsers – I have FF mobile, Opera mobile and the installed browser.  None will play the Sailflow WindFxAni, which is a Java animated wind flow forecast, and thus it is worthless as a wind prognosticator.  Many others have voiced this complaint too so it may be coming if the corporate legal boys do not get too involved.

    As a parting shot – Boy am I glad I am retired,  all you poor slobs working to pay taxes when, for example only, GE with sales of $5.1B paid no taxes.  Are we daft boys? Corporations must pay their fair share.  Men, we simply cannot keep passing along corporate tax breaks while the dwindling middle class gets breaks too.  Legislators, beware GOOOH is out to get our house back and put in order.
