Columbia University studies of people with winter and chronic depression show that negative ion generators relieve depression as much as antidepressants. “The best part is that there are relatively no side effects, but we still need to figure out appropriate doses and which people it works best on,” he says.

It’s so good that you just don’t need that musty old laptop. And here’s Apple CEO Tim Cook to make it real clear. Here’s a chart showing the past four quarters – and there’s the iPad alongside… other companies’ notebooks: Dell, HP, Lenovo.
“What you might not know is we’ve sold more iPads in the last year than the entire notebook lineup of all of the biggest notebook manufacturers,” he said. The Macs were also in the list – down there in the middle of the chart.
Half of the 90-minute launch was dedicated to the iPad Pro – with every effort made to point out that it is just as good, if not better, than a laptop.

  • The protest is meant to send a message that the company needs more transparency around its handling of sexual harassment as well as more employee empowerment overall.
  • This is the latest in a string of employee activism events at Google.

Episode 23 – Oracle Back Peddles…Hard! Maybe Something CAN Escape A Black Hole… Just Like Hawking Said!

Published last year in Bitcoin , Cloud , Cybercrime , Security - 0 Comments

Welcome back to the Tech Fugitives podcast.  Oracle discovers that maybe they should be, you know….On the Line!  This cloud thing is catching on!

After a few snarky comments and giving everyone else a decade head start, Oracle decides it’s never too late to have been wrong.  Let’s see if building 12 new data centers is enough to stop the bleeding, as AWS on-boards 5000 new Oracle databases per month….WOW!

Episode 22 – Brought to you by China, the letter “N” and Winnie the Pooh.

Published last year in AI , Cybercrime , Facebook , Security - 0 Comments

Welcome back to the Tech Fugitives podcast.  When China bans the letter “N”, they become…you know… “Chia”.  It’s just a pet name.

When China locks down speech, they don’t mess around.  They go right after seditious concepts….like Winnie the Poo, uh…. and the Letter “N”.  I don’t think President XI could get his nose caught in a honey jar, but he’s trying …. hard!  We don’t see the likeness…really!
