Girls Gone Wild In Madrid

...Random Video Of The Day...

Girls Gone Wild In Madrid

When I was a kid, growing up in San Francisco, California, I was a skate rat, which means I was really into skateboarding. Basically, my stick (skateboard) went everywhere with me until I was 16 and got a car. I was stunned when I saw this video because I have never seen girls getting this agro on sticks (old-school California Surfer-Dude lingo for skateboarding).

Windows Magazine Editor Becomes Apple Fanboy

Windows Magazine Editor Becomes Apple Fanboy

This is one of the most interesting, best write articles I have read in a long time. It was written by Mike Elgan, who is the Editor of Windows Magazine, and it is published on

"The perfect out-of-box experience with the iPhone, the elegance of the whole experience of using an iPhone, re-set my expectations for how consumer electronics and computers should function. I started looking at the out-of-box experience of buying a Windows PC with a new contempt. The crapware. The stickers. The anti-virus software problem where the cure is worse than the disease. The flimsy hardware. It’s not so much that I despised Windows PCs, but that it felt like Microsoft and the PC makers despised them, like they all have no respect for their own platform."

President Obama Sends First Live Tweet
on Apple MacBook Pro

On the 4th of July, I posted an article about President Obama rockin' his 3G iPad in San Francisco. Yesterday, President Obama typed and sent his first Live Tweet on a MacBook Pro–at least publicly.

President Obama is pictured below with Twitter co-founder, Jack Dorsey and President Obama is typing and sending his tweet on a Macbook pro that has been enhanced with a Presidential Seal that covers the Glowing Apple Logo.

Here is the video of the Twitter Town Hall where President Obama sits down to talk about Twitter and tech.

Here is a video of President Obama giving a demo on Healthcare on his Macbook Pro

This is a photo of President Obama when he was running for the Presidency, and somebody took a photo of him sitting next to a MacBook Pro with Pacman sticker on it. If I recall correctly this Apple MacBook (with the Pacman sticker) belong to a campaign staffer.

Apple Coolness U.S. President Barack Obama Rockin' an iPad II

...Apple Coolness...

U.S. President Barack Obama
Rockin' a 3G iPad II in San Francisco

President Barack Obama is pictured below on a recent trip to San Francisco. In this official White House photo taken by Pete Souza, President Obama is looking at the Golden Gate Bridge on April 20, 2011, from Chrissy Field, which is located in the San Francisco Presidio.

If you look closely, you notice President Obama is holding his 3G iPad II in his hand, which is really cool. It is great to finally have a President who "gets" technology ;-) In the future, I plan to write a detailed review of the technology that surrounds the President. Since I was born and raised, and still live in San Francisco, it is really cool to see this great photo, which has a tremendous amount of positive symbolism in it.

In my mind, this image of President Obama standing in front of the Golden Gate Bridge with an iPad will always be ultra iconic and profoundly symbolic of the fact that we are now definatley living in the digital age–finally!!!

So why am I so excited "that we are now definitely living in the digital age?" Because humanity has been trying to harness the power of computers for way too long. We have struggled with computers and technology that were full of unnecessary friction. The iPad, in my mind, symbolizes the future of learning. Remember when you were a kid and you had to carry a backpack that weighed almost as much as you because it was full of old heavy books? The iPad should finally do away with all that, and herald in a new age of friction-free learning.

These are truly amazing days we are living in!!!

Think Different In the 21st Century
Declaration Of Independence for the Digital Age

When I look at the image of President Obama standing in front of the Golden Gate Bridge with the 3G iPad in his hand, I could not help but think back to the now-retro Apple Think Different Posters from the late nineties, and since it is Independence Day, I thought I would make a color and black and white version to share with you ;-)

"Here's to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The trouble-makers. The round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. They're not fond of rules, and they have no respect for the status quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify them. But the one thing you can't do is ignore them. Because they change things. They push the human race forward. And while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world are the ones who do." –Apple

Update on October 3, 2011: Here is a video of President Obama and he mentioned Steve Jobs gave him his iPad 2 before it even came out.
