Android Love

Ok, I’ve fallen in love with my Droid all over again.  Recently I decided to take a trip.  A short 4-hour jaunt to visit mom like every good son should do.  Turn on the GPS receiver, plug in her address, tap navigation and it starts telling me directions.  No biggie, any GPS can do that.

Yup, then flip over to the music player, queue up Ani DiFranco’s “Living in Clip” and rock out.  Any time the GPS needed to give me directions the music was automatically paused, GPS told me the next step, music resumed.  Awesomesauce!

I just set the cruise and drove.  One of the most relaxing drives I’ve had in over a decade.  🙂

Pot, Kettle?

Let’s see if you can spot the same problem in this following quote from Bill Clinton that I did.

“”To hear the Republicans tell it, from the second President Obama took his hand off the Bible taking the oath of office, everything that happened after that was his fault,” Clinton said this week at a campaign rally for Sen. Patty Murray (D-Wash.). “I’d like to see any of you get behind a locomotive going straight downhill at 200 miles an hour and stop it in 10 seconds.””  (Source: Washington Post)

See it?  Let me alter the quote slightly.

“To hear the Democrats tell it, from the second President Bush took his hand off the Bible taking the oath of office, everything that happened after that was his fault. . .”

8 years of Blame Bush for everything brigade, including much of the mess Clinton handed him, and he wonders why the same would be applied to Obama?
