Reengineering America, the failed experiment

1) Giving more money at the taxpayers' expense to companies with secret agendas.

2) Giving more money of the taxpayers to finance bankrupt car companies to manufacture more shitty cars.

3) socializing our medical care; ending up with rationed healthcare just like the Soviet Union. Way to go, Obama!

What's next?

According to social scientist, Dr Michael Hammer, reengineering attempts have a 50% success rate. Radical changes are harder to accept unless they are good ones.

'Life is no straight and easy corridor along
which we travel free and unhampered,
But a maze of passages,
But always , if we have faith,
A door will open for us,
But one that will ultimately prove good for us' - AJ Cronin

Why the Iphone sux?

1) can't play music without itunes

2) can't play flash videos despite WiFi capability

3) the glamour of owning a Iphone is fading away. Now users want to own a ebook reader.

I prefer surfing on the internet with a real computer either a desktop or laptop. Besides you can get a cheap laptop for around $300 and it will have more capabilities. So if you looking for mobile device to play music and videos, settle for a smartphone such as a Pantech P7040.

With expandable memory slot, you can play mp3s, wmas, and mp4s files on your phone. You get a bigger screen than a Sony media player. You can also take pictures and videos.

Using expandable memory cards is much quicker route to have music and videos on your mobile device without utilizing the cellphone's slow network and excessive data charges. In some cases, you can get a free smartphone when you sign up for 2 year contract with some provider.

The true nature of this blog is to highlight the BS of businesses as well as other walks of life with witty quotes from wise people. Virtually every large company has a mission statement that describe their values or ethnic of doing business with one another. Most sensible people know this is BS. In reality, most corporate entities cannot take harsh criticism, are accused of leading the double standards, and profit from endless lies and deception.

Fact or Fiction?

Or it is just a pipe dream?
