I got an iPad!

I recently got an iPad 2 as an early graduation present from my wonderful grandparents.

My iPad 2!This is my first tablet computer. After using it for a few days. It’s amazing. I haven’t been this excited about an Apple product since I got my first Mac. Continue reading

My thoughts on Stop Online Piracy Act and Protect IP

As a young entrepreneur I think legislation like this is very horrible. I don’t normally go in to politics but i want to speak out on this. But basically from the understanding the RIAA, MPAA or other similar mafia groups will have some government website where they can go to and add a website to a blacklist which then is blocked in the US by the DNS.  No  trial or due process. What ever happened to the constitution? Has any of the corrupt lawyers and politicians writing this legislation read the Sixth Amendment to the United States Constitution?

In all criminal prosecutions, the accused shall enjoy the right to a speedy and public trial, by an impartial jury of the State and district wherein the crime shall have been committed, which district shall have been previously ascertained by law, and to be informed of the nature and cause of the accusation; to be confronted with the witnesses against him; to have compulsory process for obtaining witnesses in his favor, and to have the Assistance of Counsel for his defence.

Well copyright infringement is mostly a civil issue but this seems to make it more of a criminal issue. Lets travel back to January 19, 2007 where Justin Bieber sings So Sick by Ne-yo and posted it to YouTube. If he was living in the united states and this was law that cute kid everyone loves would end up in JAIL or maybe I would also for linking to it. Very bad idea.


Watch the video by Fight for the Future below to watch an entertaining video about it.  Better than me trying to explain it.

Thoughts on online dating

I am interested in Online dating somewhat. I have joined dating sites like eHarmony and Zoosk, both sites i deleted my account on. I have a few problems with websites just for dating. They want money, but they also don’t have banner ads so someone has to to pay the bills. So they have to make money, but I’m not sure if its something worth paying for. eHarmony didn’t show profile pictures without paying, Zoosk did show pictures for free. Both of them require you to pay money to communicate. Another thing I don’t like about both Zoosk and eHarmony is that you can only list if you’re interested in “Men” or “Woman”. You can’t list “Men and Woman”. Seems like they both are leaving out bisexual people.

So I think sites that are designed for just only dating aren’t that great. I think it would be better to meet someone over Twitter or chat rooms. Maybe even on Facebook as in maybe they have a mutual friends. So I think its possible to find your prefect match online for free. I think I would rather find someone online and then do online video chats to get to know them and feel more comfortable. Then do offline dating.

I really want to move to San Francisco and build a company also. So I’m not in to dating really right now, but sometimes I will feel lonely and wish I was dating. I think I would date someone who’s in to technology, Moderate politically, healthily, nice and cute. Also religion of them won’t matter really to me as I’m not a religious person but maybe they could help change that.

I also think a kid or a few would be okay, but it’s not something I want to do right now. I see children as getting in my way. I want to build something and do financially well.  Maybe adopt or have kids when I’m 30 or 40.

So far theses are my thoughts on online dating and just dating in general.

Thoughts on religion

When I was younger and uneducated I believed in god because my mom did and she called her self a christian but we never went to church. Back then I thought going to church would be cool but my step dad was like church is just about money and crap. I thought he was crazy, but he said believing in god is all that matters no church needed. Plus you shall not kill or steal. I would pray sometimes at night before but I never really made it in to a habit. Most of the times I would ask god for a new toy. I thought of him like some magical creature. None of the toys I asked for magically showed up when I woke up. I put god and santa in the same category. I kind of started disbelieving in him but other people told me I was doing it wrong, you don’t ask him for stuff. Plus family told me he’s real because he’s the only reason this earth and I exists. Continue reading

Thoughts on College

Well as I am writing this, I am still in High School, I do go to an online charter school so I do have more free time than most high school students. Got about 2 years left. Almost 18.  So thinking about college isn’t far off. Well my Family wants me to go to college. They want me to be a doctor or lawyer. My grandpa helps funds my servers and he kind of doesn’t understand this web stuff, he thinks its something I’ll grow out of it. Right now I been work on my Start up NewHills.com that isn’t open yet.  I really hope it becomes something big but I kind of doubt it. So if I go to college I’ll have something to fail back on but I have not decided yet. Continue reading
