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

Favorite Steve Jobs Quotations

Here are some of my Favorite quotations by Steve Jobs. I wrote under them my thoughts.


Here’s to the crazy ones, the misfits, the rebels, the troublemakers, the round pegs in the square holes… the ones who see things differently — they’re not fond of rules… You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them, but the only thing you can’t do is ignore them because they change things… they push the human race forward, and while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius, because the ones who are crazy enough to think that they can change the world, are the ones who do.

This is from the Apple Think different advertising campaign. I think it’s a very true saying.  This is a very inspirational commercial. Most ads are never inspirational, this one is different.

This is a never before aired version of that commercial narrated by Steve Jobs. The one that aired was narrated by Richard Dreyfuss. I like the one narrated by Steve Jobs better. Continue reading

R.I.P Steve Jobs

Today on October 5th, Steve Jobs has passed away. A sad day. He was only 56. Steve Jobs inspired me and a lot of people. He left behind a lot of innovations like the Mac, iPod, iPhone and iPad. He built a major app ecosystem that helped small developers hit big. He stayed with Apple till he died. Can many other people say that stayed with the company they love till death, no. He was a very dedicated man. People back then thought personal computers would never work out and wanted him to give up. He didn’t, he kept in the game while everyone else thought his ideas wasn’t that great but he stuck with it and proved people wrong. Now look at Apple, the company he co-founded. A very profitable company. Steve did things most of us would not do. He took big risks. I think he did what he felt was right by his heart. He changed the whole technology world. I never knew Steve Jobs personally. Only what I read, watched and heard about him. I will miss his keynotes also. I already wanted to meet him in person or visit one of his keynotes in person. He seemed like a great and a unique guy.

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
