Count the Contradictions

I saw this comment in an article which stated Wal-Mart is going to start selling iPads. The comments after a news article are generally a source for some of the most inane, ignorant thoughts ever contributed to the Internet. They’re especially bad following articles relating to crime, but this one stood out because the article hardly covers a controversial topic. The crime related ones are just to easy to hate.

Wal-Mart single-handedly killed small town USA. They truly are “too big to fail” Stop and think what will happen if Wal-Mart suddenly went under.
It’s time to start pulling back and let them die a slow death.

Cyber Monday?

Americans have a new reason to ramp up their massive consumerism! Cyber Monday has arrived! Ok, so the term has existed for a few years now, but I’m hearing it for the first time. Cyber Monday is the day when supposedly online sales peak. So we are encouraged to celebrate by buying more! Now I’m not opposed to online retailers using the term as an excuse to offer great discounts and sell things at a cheaper price. I support any excuse to discount items. What I hate is how Cyber Monday is presented to us all as the day when we’re supposed to buy things online. And it’s done in a “didn’t you know this already?” fashion. (more…)

What’s On Your Mind?

A lot of Yahoo! users (and by extension, a lot of people around the world) have something on their mind. It’s not the war in Iraq, nor is it the war in Afghanistan. It’s not Obama and his peace prize. It’s not even the economy, gas prices or unemployment rates amazingly enough. No. If Yahoo! rank their most popular searches accurately it’s something a touch more trivial. (more…)

We Must Protect This Nest?

The Arizona Cardinals have come up with a ticket plan called the “Protect the Nest Plan”. Because of this plan any person who wants to buy tickets to the Cardinals/Cowboys game must also buy tickets to the Cardinals preseason game against New Orleans. That immediately strikes me as stupid. Plus it seems like they’re saying “Whoa! When the Coyboys come here it’s almost like an away game! Those Cowboys are so amazing… What can we do to change that?” I feel like they’re making total fools of themselves with this plan and they’re showing no faith in their fans.
I mean, you didn’t see the Rays taking measure like this to prevent their home games against Boston and New York from turning into away(ish) games. Instead they played amazing baseball and suddenly all of their home games feel like home games. Arizona should learn from that instead of making total fools of them selves and disappointing their fans.

This must be a recession; even Google is hurting

It seems like Google can do no wrong, and from reading the story they haven’t. But in this economic climate, that couldn’t stop their stock from slipping by 7.6 percent. As a matter off fact, Google is still growing. It’s making more money than ever before; it’s just that it didn’t meet expectations.

And you’re the problem.
