False Recovery:

If you walk into a building and there is a crack on the wall, it’s responsible to patch it up.  Government (Bush, Obama, everyone for the last 40 years) has not fixted the crack in our economy, rather they put some paint on it.  Unfortunately the people won’t wake up to this until our dollar collapses and our economy bubble bursts again.  That is what Keynesian economics does, and that is what we have had in America for at least 4 decades.  We are just printing money, utilizing deficit financing, and we’re not allowing the market to adjust.  We’re not allowing the debt to liquidate which is what is supposed to happen in a correction.  Nobody in government want’s everything to fall apart on their watch, so they just patch things up enough to get to the next president.  It’s corrupt, and we ultimately pay the price.

Each job Obama said he created cost the taxpayers over $80K… for that kind of money he could have paid twice as many people to sit on their butts at home… then he could say he created TWICE as many jobs!  Even though they are jobs that we don’t need and are silly political games.

SOTU Fact Check: Obama Lies About Lobbyists

Obama won’t freeze budget:

I don’t like McCain, but HE proposed the budget freeze long ago… Obama is jumping on the bandwagon?

Obama lies about taxes:
Fact checks are being calculated as we speak so more will come on this.  However, when you inflate the currency like he and Bush did, you don’t have to tax.  You don’t take any money from the people… you just take it’s worth so it’s a tax you can hide.  No matter if he literally taxed more or not (which I am sure it will turn out that he did) he indirectly taxed us through evil inflation that is yet to catch up with us.

…other than tha the just told the same lies he told to get elected.  I’ll bring the troops home, I’ll cut taxes, I’ll do health care reform (presumably not making it worse), etc.  He used it as a big PR move… didn’t tell the truth.  Funny that he is now ready to Drill (a conservative idea that he was opposed to at first) go necular (a conservative idea that he was opposed to at first)… there were a few more things that I’m sure the partisin (D)’s will love to hear that they only now like because he is saying it.  No loyalty to truth or what thing is best… just whatever the puppet president says.  The republicans did this with Bush too.  It’s amazing how partisin politics play the people like a flute.  It’s like nobody things for themselves.  McCain says freeze the budget, republicans say YES and democrats say NO.  Then Obama says freeze the budget… republicans say NO and democrats say YES.  Bunch of cowards is what everyone is.

Digital media is re-introduced into the equation with the presence of MIDI files. Think of MIDI files as digital sheet music. When a musician plays any instrument or sings any song, they sing on a timeline. Each note they hit is placed at a particular point in time and with varying levels of volume. MIDI files memorize digital signatures of when and how loud notes were struck. In other words, if a pianist was playing a keyboard that was recording MIDI information, the computer would log exactly when a note was played, and exactly how hard the key was struck. Later, the musician can take this file and open the timeline. When he or she does this, a timeline will open with dots and lines indicating the keystrokes. The pianist can then click on the dots and lines and move them around, manipulating the performance. This means that if the pianist accidently hits a note a few seconds too soon, they can simply go into the MIDI file and move the note back into place. If the pianist decides he or she should have played that note an octave higher or a bit louder – no problem; then note can simply be edited. MIDI files allow even terrible musicians to record tracks in perfection.

and there you have it

and there you have it

Utilizing MIDI files, the artist can go far beyond just correcting performance mistakes. Notes can be completely added. Perhaps the pianist can’t play a blues riff. No problem – the musician can click in the MIDI timeline and indicate where a note would need to be, and how loud the computer should play it. Remember also that MIDI files are only recording when in time the note was struck, and how hard the note was struck – not the actual instrument that was used to strike these notes. In other words, a pianist can record a banjo solo on his or her keyboard, take it into the MIDI file, and simply apply a sampled banjo sound to the MIDI track. It is possible for a musician to record an entire album complete with everything from a full string section to a didgeridoo and not know how to play a single instrument.

Another Shady Apple Add

December 13, 2008

Apple released an add that describes the process of holding up the phone to a radio, and the iPhone will tell you “what song is playing, and where to get it.”

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hny-G-0nUBM

Then they say “That’s the iPhone.  Solving life’s dilemmas, one app at a time.” which implies that when you don’t know what song is on the radio, Apple will come in and save the day.

This is a CLASSIC example of Apple deceiving the public and what is worse, people are believing it.  Ladies and gentlemen, what I am about to say may shock you.  THIS SOFTWARE HAS BEEN AVAILABLE FOR YEARS.  You can get it on an iPhone?  So what.  You could have had music discovery software on your Verizon Chocolate a long time ago, and I know people who did.

Apple did not invent this software just like they did not invent the smart-phone.  Shazam works on the Google Android and a number of other phones.  Don’t believe me?  Check out their website: http://www.shazam.com/music/web/home.html

History of Shazam: http://www.shazam.com/music/web/pages/background.html

Apple has always been crafty about their adds.  I can’t say they are lying – they are not.  Shazam does work on the iPhone.  However, they make it sound like they invented it.  That’s dishonest and irresponsible and someone needs to hold these pirates accountable.

Don’t be brainwashed.

Think before you buy.
