Kim Dotcom Bankrupt ... such a shame.

My legal team resigned because I ran out of money after I spent $10m to try and defend myself. They have managed to drain my resources," ... an upcoming bail hearing, ... could end his liberty.

Hey, maybe each of those 50Million satisfied customers could all help him out and give him a dollar.

I'm guessing he's a republican

Exxon donated nearly $2 million to a group that financed NJ Governor Chris Christie's election campaigns. Then, Christie decided to settle a $9 billion lawsuit against Exxon for $225 million --just 3% of the damages it should pay.

- Where to sit in meetings ...

Actually, for the seating in meetings, I already adopt the "Next to the Boss" strategy, but for meetings with a projector, I may try the other alternative.

Data Only Cellular ... finally a reality?

... [Google] said Monday at the wireless show in Barcelona, Spain, that it will soon sell data plans for smartphones and tablets in the U.S. ...

To save me the hassle of retyping, may I refer you to my earlier post: Microsoft, Nokia, Skype, etc. Simply replace Microsoft with Google, Skype with Hangouts and Skype-in with Google Voice.

Craft Beer Festival

Craft Beer Festival Glass

Had a good few hours at the San Jose Craft Beer festival.

Naturally there were too many IPAs present, as they are the fad of the decade for beers.  But still plenty of good stuff: porters, bitters, ciders.

Worst stuff I tasted was the "sour ciders".  I've never encountered those before, and I don't care to encounter them again.

Most interesting was the Blue Moon "Cinnamon Horchata" beer.  As the server recommended: it goes great with beef tachos!
