Amazon.com will you please update your products to the latest ones when a customer is searching for a particular item. Try any item: tv, remote control, car stereo; it does not matter, invariably 4 or more items out of the first 10 will be products that are two to five years old.
Why has not Amazon figured out that a consumer looking for a new product like a laptop, wants to see the latest ones made, at least have a menu button option that will perform this action. The “New and Popular” Menu option does not solve this problem.
Search “laptop” in the computers section and the fifth computer displayed is an Apple Ibook g4 which is over 10 years old.
Add “new and popular” to that “laptop” search and the first 7 items will not be laptops but items like a Kindle Fire, Playstation 4, Chromecast.
Amazon.com’s search function is beyond subpar and yet their entire business model is predicated on the consumer finding what they want online through their search bar.

Steve Wozniak recently revealed that the Apple garage origin story is a myth. If Wozniak is telling the truth and by all accounts of Apple insiders, he comes across as an honorable person, one has to question if Walter Isaacson’s “Steve Jobs” biography is a myth considering how much he leans on this garage origin story.
Did Isaacson do a lazy job of researching, were his interviews superficial, did he rely too much on past Apple and Steve Jobs biographies?

Kindle Voyage Screen Problems, Yellow on Top, Blue on Bottom, Tech Media Ignores, Arrogant Amazon Refuses to Comment.
The Engadget and Techcrunches of the world are worthless because they offer propaganda for the large tech companies. ReCode, NY Times, WSJ, it does not matter, no tech blogs are reporting the massive number of Amazon customers who are returning their Kindle Voyages multiple times because of problem screens and lighting issues.
War69.com is the only blog reporting this and Amazon refuses to answer our repeated requests for a comment.
Check back as we will be testing and reviewing a Kindle Voyage to see if spending over $200 for an e-ink reader is worth it and if we have the same screen issues.

If you watch CNBC’s Shark Tank for a few episodes and you hear the botox laden Mark Cuban repeat for the tenth time “good for you”, questions begin to loom if any of this is real, remember this is CNBC, the land of the stock shills, bullshit personalities, and free CEO business promotion, where a CEO can say just about anything and the CNBC reporter will fail to challenge him or her.
In addition even if the Sharks actually invest real money in the start up ideas that appear on the show, it is rigged, there is little risk, the publicity from the show alone will result in mega sales.
But in this case, The Shark Stiffed The Entrepreneur.
Until CNBC provides the actual financial evidence of every promise, every Shark investment, every outcome, we have to assume that every Shark Tank Nation episode is pure fiction.

The real question for Sony and the news media is has North Korea ever committed an act of terrorism in a western nation? War69.com can’t find one single instance of a North Korean state sponsored violent terrorist act in America, Europe or anyplace outside of the Far East. None of the talking heads have discussed this aspect of the Sony/North Korea hacking scandal, no national security expert has revealed if they believe that North Korea has the foreign agents and network necessary to commit an act of terrorism in the United States.
Why has not one Obama administration official addressed whether they believe this violent movie theater threat is credible? Does any intelligence agency in the U.S. government believe that there is chatter or other evidence of an active North Korean violent terroristic plot against the United States?
In fact once the hackers invoked September 11th in their movie theater threat, one had to believe that the threat was empty, using that date exposed their weakness, a true national security expert should understand this.
Memo to Sony, vis a vis the violence theater threat, you got played. Release the movie and gain some dignity.

Josh Brolin’s Hedge Fund is “Lagovent Ventures”, his partner is Brett Markinson.
Josh Brolin discussed his theory of momentum stock trading in 2008 on The Charlie Rose Show:
Josh Brolin:[I use a very specific type of trading] which is Pull Backs, that is what I do. I find a momentum stock, I wait until it pulls back a little bit, and then it hits a support, I get it then, it will go back and test where it started to go down which is called resistance, and I nab that percent, that percent and a half, and if you do that enough then you got, you know, fifty percent, sixty percent, seventy percent.
We’re beginning to get into hedge funds… We’re just about to manage a forty million dollar hedge fund.

The Aaron Sorkin/Sony Pictures Universal Studios Steve Jobs biopic film is dead on arrival. David Fincher who claims Hollywood treats the audience like cattle yet directs Facebook movies and airport trash pseudo relationship novels, turned down $40 million to direct this movie, what a man of the people. Say what you will about Fincher but at least the movie would have been visually stunning but now that the MTV-esque hack Danny Boyle is in charge, get ready for split screen, flashing images, dubious quick cuts, and more post grad film school nonsense. Combine that with Sorkin’s three scene structure and you have a disaster on your hands.
The real question is why waste your time, even though Josh Hartnett was playing a real life dot com entrepreneur, he clearly chose to inhabit the character of Steve Jobs in the movie entitled “August” 2008.
Nobody will play a better Steve Jobs than Josh Hartnett already played in “August”.

NBC News Journalist Ron Allen Asks the Most Nonsensical Question in Ferguson/Michael Brown/No Indictment Press Conference, “There is not a single law in the state of Missouri that protects and values the life of this young man, who unquestionably was shot and killed dead, there is no dispute about that, by the police officer. What do you say to people who wonder is something wrong with the laws here that allows to this happen, that after this happens, says we just move on essentially, that this is justice, is this really justice?”
1. Ron Allen’s credibility goes right out the window and he should not be considered a fair journalist.
2. How is Ron Allen able to keep his job when he asked the most nonsensical question of the year with zero meaning and zero intelligence?

“Fury” Movie, Brad Pitt as WarDaddy Quotes Bible John 2:15 Near End Of Film, “If a man loves the world, the love of the Father ain’t in him.”
Wardaddy is in pain. Blood soaking his sleeve.
You’re no good leaking oil everywhere.
So patch me up. Gordo, get up here and
work the thirty.
Gordo slips into the turret. Reloads the .30 Cal and starts
ON NORMAN - Still shooting. Empty brass is up to his ankles.
Bible cuts open Wardaddy’s sleeve. Pours sulfa powder on the
gunshot wound and bandages it. As Bible tends his wound…
If a man loves the world, the love of the
Father ain’t in him. For all in the
world, lust of the flesh, lust of the
eyes, the pride of life, is not of the
Father. But of the world.
The world and its desires pass away. But
he who does God’s will lives forever.
Off bible’s quizzical look…
I once had a long spell with nothing but
the good book and my conscience.
With his arm patched up, Wardaddy recovers his .45 Pistol.
Bible turns to Gordo.
I got it.
Gordo has a worried look…
Here is the English Standard Bible version:
1 John 2:15–17
Do Not Love the World
15 Do not love the world or the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. 16 For all that is in the world—the desires of the flesh and the desires of the eyes and pride of life—is not from the Father but is from the world. 17 And the world is passing away along with its desires, but whoever does the will of God abides forever.
In addition there is another scene in the “Fury” film referencing the Bible:
He offers Bible the bottle. Bible takes it. He meditates on
the demon liquor a beat. Then:
I know you hate me preaching, but what
we’re doing is a righteous act. There’s a
bible verse I think about sometimes. Then
I heard the voice of the Lord saying,
“Whom shall I send? And who will go for
us?” And I said, “Here am I. Send me.”
That resonated. Bible sees it on the faces of the men.
Book of Isaiah. Chapter Six.
Bible is floored Wardaddy knew that…
Yeah, Don. That’s exactly right.
