“I could end the deficit in 5 minutes” by Warren Buffett

Warren Buffett, in a recent interview with CNBC,offers one of the best quotes about the debt ceiling …

“I could end the deficit in 5 minutes,” he told CNBC.

“You just pass a law that says that any time there is a deficit of more than 3% of GDP, all sitting members of Congress are ineligible for re-election.”

The 26th amendment (granting the right to vote for 18 year-olds) took only 3 months and 8 days to be ratified! Why?

Simple! The people demanded it. Continue reading


Google Voice Porting Request Refund Cancellation Failure

If you’re using Google Voice, which we LOVE, and have had issues, you might have discovered a problem getting a refund cancellation request to process successfully. When you click CANCEL THIS PORT and click the Yes/No dialog, you see either a hidden message under the browser frame indicating failure, or nothing at all. Nothing happens and the cancellation is ignored. We tried this on Mac and Windows in all reasonable browsers with no success.

Expectations for Mobile Media In 2011 and Beyond.

Companies will evolve their mobile strategy beyond “mobile friendly”. 2010 was the year where mobile devices finally drove enough site traffic to compel companies to craft a mobile strategy. Yet most organizations stopped at mobile friendly, assuming the battle was over once the website and marketing campaigns rendered correctly on mobile devices. In 2011, we’ll see marketers take advantage of device capabilities and characteristics to deliver mobile experiences, not mobile friendly websites. Users are open to more immersive experiences on tablets but will look for more transactional experiences on smartphones. Mobile development will no longer be an afterthought, and innovative companies will develop for mobile first, and progressively enhance the experience based on the capabilities of the browser or device.

A Flying Robot that Perches, Flips and Dives

Small unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) could help the military carry out surveillance in unknown territory or first responders look for survivors after a disaster. The trick is making them agile enough to pull off daredevil aerobatic maneuvers.

Daniel Mellinger, Nathan Michael and Vijay Kumar at the University of Pennsylvania’s GRASP Laboratory have developed software that lets a small, quadroter helicopter perform aggressive acrobatic stunts autonomously. They show off the impressive maneuvers–including a quadroter that autonomously maneuvers quickly through a tight space–in a new video, below.

Google is phasing out the internal use of Microsoft’s ubiquitous Windows operating system because of security concerns, according to several Google employees.

The directive to move to other operating systems began in earnest in January, after Google’s Chinese operations were hacked, and could effectively end the use of Windows at Google, which employs more than 10,000 workers internationally. Continue reading
