There Are Two Ways to Read — One Is Useless

We can’t talk to them, nor touch them, but their thoughts are immortalized through the written word. Without books, humans would never have escaped the boundaries of space and time. Each new generation would have had to learn the realities of life for themselves rather than having the luxury to build on the past; knowledge accumulation would have quickly dimmed towards an asymptote.

Angel’s Pizza! The Pizza from Hell – stay away! Far, far away!

After seeing this photo proudly posted on Angel’s Pizza’s web site, I am no longer surprised that their product and service is aligned with murderous criminality – the worst our country has ever seen in this modern age of lightning fast, fake news.

Having been convinced (Gullible? Generous?) to avail of “promo coupons” that would have usually offered significant savings for pizza-craving Ninja Turtle fans – I ventured into my first reception with The Pizzeria Formerly Known as Domino’s.

It was a bad first experience. Very, very bad! Here’s the letter I sent them after I cancelled my order then enjoyed a warm, fresh, succulent feast from Shakey’s:

I have given your customer service personnel attending to your 922-2222 number two suggestions after having tried, in vain, to see if your web site supports your Great Ideas coupon promo. I have been busy filling up your online order form to pass the time and perhaps ease the burden of information overload with names, email addresses, house addresses, card numbers, phone numbers, and whatnot.

#1. Your web site knows nothing about your promo. #2. I’ve seen better food photography from Instagram posts made with mobile phones. #3. Your web site just suddenly decided to end the information request and thanked me for my order! Read up on UX (User Experience) for the web.

#4. Then upon receiving your callback about my online order, and going through all the motions with the names, email addresses, house addresses, card numbers, phone numbers, etc., I was informed that it would take 1 hour and 45 mins for my order to reach my house. I informed her that this was pizza, not fine dining!

You are redefining what fast food was designed for! Anyway, I asked what hours I should order so as not to overwhelm your kitchen, and I was (Horrors!) informed not to order anytime between 11am and 8pm! Are you sure you’re in the right industry?

I will, eventually, get my money back from your Great Ideas coupon promo but sadly, everyone within shouting, speaking, and whispering distance, and that includes the entire gamut of social media, will hear about this. You should have prepared before venturing gung ho into the void of fastfood consumerism! Good luck!

From the young boy in the backyard to “rattan’s first virtuoso”

From the young boy in the backyard to “rattan’s first virtuoso” | DesignFaveshttp://www.designfaves.com/2017/03/from-the-young-boy-in-the-backyard-to-rattans-first-virtuoso#refnlA multi-awarded furniture designer and manufacturer from Cebu, Philippines, Kenneth Cobonpue made a name both in the local and international for his unique designs and roster of clientele that include names such as Queen Sophia of Spain and Brad Pitt.  Cobonpue’s trademark is the integration of locally sourced materials with innovative handmade production processes. His craft is recognized by different award-giving bodies around the globe like the American Society of Interior Design and French Coup de Couer to name a few. His designs have also appeared in films, music videos, and US TV series. In 2007, Kenneth was named by TIME magazine as “rattan’s first virtuoso”. Kenneth was born in a Chinese family and was initially encouraged by his father to take up a business course. But his love for designing was developed at an early age when he used to play with various materials and create furniture pieces at his mother’s backyard factory. Although he followed his father and took up a

Rejected Secret Service Code Names For The President And First Lady

by Allan Ishac @ extranewsfeed.com

In November, the Secret Service asked agents to suggest code names for the new president and first lady. The agency specified that both nicknames had to start with the same letter, as has been the custom for the past twelve presidential couples. They received a record number of submissions.

Shambling corpse of 3D TV finally falls down dead

by David Katzmaier @ cnet.com

Samsung dropped 3D support in 2016, Vizio hasn’t offered it since 2013. Other smaller names, like Sharp, TCL and Hisense, also failed to announce any 3D-capable TVs at CES 2017.

The 3D feature has been offered on select televisions since 2010, when the theatrical success of “Avatar” in 3D helped encourage renewed interest in the technology. In addition to a 3D-capable TV, it requires specialized glasses for each viewer and the 3D version of a TV show or movie — although some TVs also offer a simulated 3D effect mode.

Despite enthusiasm at the box office and years of 3D TVs being available at affordable prices, the technology never really caught on at home. DirecTV canceled its 24/7 3D channel in 2012 and ESPN followed suit a year later. There are plenty of 3D Blu-ray discs still being released, such as “Star Wars: The Force Awakens,” but if you want to watch them at home you’ll need a TV from 2016 or earlier — or a home theater projector.

Macintosh HD names

One late evening in 1998, Stefan Friedl and Wolfgang Krimmel asked themselves the names of their hard disks. As this already was quite a lot of fun, they asked the other guys and girls around and had of course a very long and funny night. MacintoshHD.org is a database for all the names you gave your previously called “Macintosh HD.” It now includes a voting system with more than 650 harddisk-names online!
