corpCon: Steve Jobs’ iCloud BullShit and consumer social responsibility



as posted on youtube



When you buy an ipad or related products, storage is part of the price. What this git Jobs has successfully done, with the help of all you dumb users of the ipad and iphone - including ed who didn't realise it when he bought what will be his 1st and last iphone - is that you're saying ok to this guy to re-associating the price of a computer item with the product only minus the storage. This must be quite the first in the technological world. This was already quite done with the help of those morons who bought the ipod shuffle and gave the thumbs up to paying more for less storage space because of the size.

Thereafter, the capitalists began to realise that,

“hey, those idiots whom are trying to keep up with the latest trends and fashions, and feeling real important by doing so, or being one of the first to have this or that product by camping outside of our stores for first releases, have fallen for our attempt to sell the product minus adequate storage space, or even built-in usb or memory card slots!”

Others are now following suit.

Innovation and invention, within the capitalist milieu, is a means by which progress in profit-generation takes precedence over technological advance, and regress in the intellect of the human mass is depended upon for them to confuse it for progress itself.
So now they can make more money through shite like the iCloud for which you’re going to be expected to pay even more. So you’re paying more for a device minus adequate storage space - you’re paying more because the price had to already include more space than is currently included but which is not. You’re not getting it even if you’re paying for it. And if you do want a bit more storage space on your device, you’ll have to pay more than the price of a memory card - and they do not have memory card slots. If you think you’re still ‘hip and trendy’ sporting the latest iphone or ipad, all you’re doing is making a public exhibition of your stupidity - well, at least to non-subnormal minds like ed.

Instead of coming up with this iCloud shite. Why not come up with a device that enables the syncing of all our devices at home with even greater ease? Innovation and invention, within the capitalist milieu, when consumers become consumers instead of cogitating human beings, is a means by which progress in profit-generation takes precedence over technological advance, and regress in the intellect of the human mass is depended upon for them to confuse it for progress itself.

It is quite a dilemma for the non-subnormal minds out there. How do we respect the freedom of choice whilst ensuring that we do not subject others to the stupid choices we make in our attempts to be fashionable.
The problem with 'being fashionable' is that we, sorry, people, desire to fill in the void of their empty personalities with keeping up with the latest because some idiot celeb or ad campaign says so. In that, social responsibility goes out the window. People do not think about how the free choices they make binds us all within a dungeon created by our ignorance, and profited from by the elite. And if you're one of those who know better, you're going to look at the people who strut pass you on the byways and highways of life, your family and friends, shake your head, and say, 'shit. I'm living under the tyranny of idiocy'. It is quite a dilemma for the non-subnormal minds out there. How do we respect the freedom of choice whilst ensuring that we do not subject others to the stupid choices we make in our attempts to be fashionable.

People complain that democracy isn't real as we only have the power to do something about our government once every 4 or 5 years. But what people forget that we are voting everyday by the choices we make, and if done incorrectly, leads to our and others being trained to be short-sighted at the polls. The greatest changes we can make is betwixt elections, when we cast the ballot at the checkout counter. It is that which sends a clear signal to the government of the day, and all those wannabe governments on the oppositional side, that we are empathetic, objective, and intelligent, and they'd better do more betwixt elections if they want to get their asses into those halls of what will thus be 'people's power'. But when we prove ourselves idiots in our consumeristic decisions, or turn our culture into 'shopping, eating and gambling' (as is the case in confucian or confucian-like states), all parties are going to take their cue from that and structure the manifestos and policies in a way that respects our disrespect for ourselves.

Alright. Go think. Idiot.

Is singapore a tyranny, or are people to dumbed down to feel it?

The following is a consideration of the perspective posted at the site, 'article14'. The site, in discussing the so-called 'Black Sunday movement' whose members wear black and congregate at Starbucks - perhaps they have an unstated desire to boost Starbucks sales of overpriced beverages, or perhaps Starbucks is paying for their black garments...silly people - to express their support for the freedom of expression - brought up certain points that seem to be commonly held by the 'singaporeans' of today.

ed racially harassed by police at Changi Airport

Well, V (singaporean chinese girl working in the UK....and now back for the holidays) kept bugging the crap out of me to write about this experience....so here goes.

I arrived in singapore on the 15th of Jan in the evening via SQ with V.  I got to the baggage retrieval belt first and quite immediately got the attention of the customs police standing at the checkpoint near the entrance to the arrival hall.  Well, never mind.
