It All Depends On What The Meaning Of "Unlimited" Is

AT&T vs Verizon vs Sprint vs T-Mobile. In the law, many terms don't mean what you think they mean. Some terms are impossible to determine what they mean. Take "reasonable" for instance. Negligence is defined as falling below the "reasonable man" standard of care. What would a "reasonable man" do? Of course, the definition depends on many variables. Like the law, mobile phone plans can be inscrutable. This comparison of cell phone plans reads like the Internal Revenue Code. It all depends on what the meaning of "unlimited" is. Happy wandering through the fine print. I wonder if these plans were authored by lawyers.          Related StoriesStephen Curry Says: "Show Me The Money"!Why I Wear A Samsung Gear S3 FrontierNexus 6P - Why It Is My GoTo Phone  [...]



Politics And Protests - Don't We Have Enough To Worry About?

Uh, Oh.Happy EasterDid United Airlines Have The Legal Right To Remove A Boarded Passenger?  I went to a protest that had its own app. I have always hated politics. I don't care what your political views are. Does anyone really believe they can change minds by marching in protests, acting out in public, or whatever? Now, my love for technology and apps is being used to enable such behavior, with apps to organize protests. I suppose it takes a family illness or emergency to focus our minds on what is really important; which is the people we love and are with, and the daily struggle to survive. To the extent that getting out and attempting to control other people is a coping mechanism for avoiding your own problems, have at it. But, perhaps we need to ask ourselves whether dealing with our own problems, illnesses, faults and foibles, privately, would be more likely to affect the quality of our lives. The Stoics tell us that we can't control things external to ourselves. That includes the people we are trying to reach when we march in protests, carrying signs. That behavior looks more like someone who is in denial about their own life, and is avoiding what is really important. The Stoics are the real authors of the wisdom of the Serenity prayer. Control what you can, yourself and your reaction to life's twists and turns. Accept what you can't control. Have the wisdom to know the difference.           Related StoriesNo Cell Phone Calls On Planes? Uh, Oh.Happy EasterDid United Airlines Have The Legal Right To Remove A Boarded Passenger?  [...]

Android Wear, now upgraded to version 2.0, is a great watch OS; but, the Gear S3 with its rotating bezel, and classic good looks, is still the best watch on the planet.           Related StoriesWhy I Wear A Samsung Gear S3 FrontierAndroid Wear 2.0 Now Rolling Out To LG Watch Urbane 1st EditionAndroid Wear 2.0 Starting To Hit Older Watches  [...]

He was a Stoic, and wrote this in a letter to a friend: "The most fortunate of us, in our journey through life, frequently meet with calamities and misfortunes which may greatly afflict us; and, to fortify our minds against the attacks of these calamities and misfortunes, should be one of the principal studies and endeavours of our lives. The only method of doing this is to assume a perfect resignation to the Divine will, to consider that whatever does happen, must happen; and that by our uneasiness, we cannot prevent the blow before it does fall, but we may add to its force after it has fallen. These considerations, and others such as these, may enable us in some measure to surmount the difficulties thrown in our way; to bear up with a tolerable degree of patience under this burden of life; and to proceed with a pious and unshaken resignation, till we arrive at our journey’s end, when we may deliver up our trust into the hands of him who gave it, and receive such reward as to him shall seem proportioned to our merit. Such, dear Page, will be the language of the man who considers his situation in this life, and such should be the language of every man who would wish to render that situation as easy as the nature of it will admit. Few things will disturb him at all: nothing will disturb him much." While these are difficult ideas to live while in the middle of crisis, they are nonetheless true. Another way to say it simply is that we all must surrender to the Will of whatever God we believe in.           Related StoriesThe Powerful Indifference Of StoicismHow Does A Stoic Deal With Taxes?Keep Swinging  [...]

In the future, solar cells printed on window tint will coat our windows, and supplement electricity use in homes and offices. This is the promise of new tech that is revolutionizing the solar industry. Already, roof cells are becoming thinner, more powerful,  and more pleasing to the eyes. These computer printed cells remind me of the wearable revolution. We wear computers on our wrists, around our necks, in our hands and pockets, and as jewelry. Soon, computer mind interfaces will augment the way we interact with the world. Here's hoping we live to see more of these marvelous technologies. I am optimistic about the possibilities that the new tech will improve the lives of billions of people on our planet.          Related StoriesHard Drives Over Fifty YearsWhy FutureLawyer Loves Gadgets And TechSignal Proof Headwear - Xmas Gift For Conspiracy Theorists  [...]

"The truth is, indifference really is a power, selectively applied, and living in such a way is not only eminently possible, with a conscious adoption of certain attitudes, but facilitates a freer, more expansive, more adventurous mode of living. Joy and grief are still there, along with all the other emotions, but they are tempered and, in their temperance, they are less tyrannical." I have been spending a lot of time in hospitals lately, and, believe me when I tell you that worry, sadness, love and every other emotion are on full display in such places. However, the Stoic's indifference to life's travails is a stark reminder that there are defenses to the unbridled emotionality of the human psyche. Assume the worst, and live the best, has been turned by some into an indictment of the Stoic mindset, when, in actuality, it is a celebration of the power of the mind over the only thing we CAN control; which is our own reaction to the things life throws at us. So, be indifferent to the bad stuff, celebrate the good stuff, and realize that both come to everyone, sooner or later. Celebrate what you can control, and ignore the rest.           Related StoriesHow Does A Stoic Deal With Taxes?Keep SwingingShocker - Life Isn't Fair  [...]
