iThink that is the mark of a good blog. A blog iSimply started as a response to a situation… it has spawned so much more and all of it for no cost to me at all. Except my time, energy and combination of the two to make the RSS subscribers happy. And speaking of happy, iAm officially happy to have reached 500,000 visitors to the web pages of Thunk Different.

Thank you readers, WordPress, Apple, the Wall Street Journal, IBM, and everyone else who has published my work and made this possible. iAm humbled, iThunk none of this was possible and wouldn’t have been with out the web & the people the make it possible… you. ūüėČ

Verizon Wireless & Macs

March 22, 2008

If you are a business professional, or just want to rock that mac 24/7. You will need a verizon wireless card, or a usb card. I’d go for the USB port antenna even if the urge to use your mac book pro port is tempting, it’s best left for other ideas – USB 2.0, SATA, SETI communication, etc.

mac verizonSo with Verizon you do get a kick ass network, you really do. I’m sure some of you heard about the 700 Mhz bandwidth deal going on that Verizon pretty much cleaned house in, but that is a ways off, for now they still have the bets US coverage for wireless broadband, and the only really quality hook up for mac.

So what do you get and how do you get it?

1. Contract? Yes. 1 or two years with a $175.00 cancellation fee minus $5.00 off for every month you are on the plan

2. Activation? Yes. Even if you have a Verizon cell phone, the fee is usually $35.00

3. Monthly Cost? $59.00 plus taxes. Sure, there is a small megabyte plan, but that defeats the purpose unless you are a granny/gramps that just needs to check email, doesn’t watch you tube, uses quicktime, itunes, or a comparable torrent service.

4. What are the limitations?

WTF Wednesday: Up, down, how about we lay down…

March 19, 2008

(CHICAGO) Tired with a capital T, yes – I am going to rest until I get washed around 10:00, then I have good bear behavior lessons at 11:30 where this guy is going to talk to me ALL ABOUT web 2.0 and how he has ALL THESE STUPID IDEAS about. My big hairy ass! How come he works at a zoo and talks to animals “Golly, I’m getting outta here one day.” HA HA HA That is a joke. So I’m busy today and unfortunately, very sleepy too.
