What’s new in my life. What’s going on

So I haven’t posted a lot of artwork lately because we been in the process of redoing my basement which is my office and I have everything everywhere and all different places every way and until we get everything back in order. I feel like I can’t do anything productive. And I’m just sitting here looking at the wall and where my office is where all the pipes for the house. This house is really old. I wouldn’t say really old but it’s 50 some years old. My grandparents a.k.a. my mom and dad built this house. And it still I think have all original waterline and drainage. And there’s some major repairs that need to be done but we just don’t have the money.

But the guys that are coming to do the basement had a emergency call that they had to go take. These people are restoration team. So we got put on the back burner. Which blows but at the same time okay because I have all my art stuff and office things. In the place that they really need to focus on. And other than be taken some three big things out of the basement. That we just need to get rid of or sell or get somebody to look at. So I’ve been trying to organize all my stuff. Which I’m kind of proud of myself because I got most of it done last week. And I’m almost done getting the major parts but now it’s to the point where I can’t open spaces where I had shelves.

And all I want to do is rearrange my desk and put it somewhere. But by the time I do that ,they call or my mom would call them back. I think my mom at the same time calling them because she’s getting a new bed for her room because my dad is in a nursing home. And she cannot sleep in the bed that they have so she got up hospital. So we been slowly trying to get her room cleaned up. And her old bed taking down. It’s one of those waterbed frames. So I think that’s why she’s holding off. Which is nice! Because It gives me give little more time. Just to do random things in the basement.

Apple CEO Tim Cook Addresses The iPad’s Continued Lack Of Sales Growth

Originally posted on TechCrunch:

During today’s earnings call for Apple’s fiscal Q4 2014, CEO Tim Cook took time to address the iPad’s performance at length. Cook referred to a lot of the general kinds of negative feeling around iPad performance circulating around media and analysts, and brought up his own perspective on the product category.

“I take a step back on iPad,” he said. “I know that there’s a lot of negative commentary in the market on iPad, but i have a sort of different perspective on it […] We’ve sold 247 million over the first four years, that’s more than we sold over the first four years of iPhone.”

“To me, I view it as a speed bump, not a huge issue,” he added, referencing the lack of growth year-over-year for iPad during the past three quarters. “That said, we want to grow, we don’t like negative numbers on these things.”

With new servers, regions, an appliance, Microsoft kicks off another battle in cloud wars

Originally posted on Gigaom:

In case things were unclear, Microsoft’s latest Azure moves — including big freaking cloud servers, a Dell-based appliance to facilitate hybrid Azure clouds, and new regional coverage in Australia — the public cloud battle has moved well beyond price cuts.

In a phone interview after Monday’s event, Microsoft EVP Scott Guthrie, said Azure’s new G instances are bigger and beefier than what Amazon or Google offer. And Azure’s roll-out in Australia — to come online next week — brings total Azure cloud regions to 19 worldwide, twice as many as Amazon and six times as many as Google, he said.

[company]Microsoft[/company], unlike [company]Google[/company] and [company]Amazon[/company], has a fairly strong hybrid cloud story which it bolstered with news of its Dell-based Microsoft Cloud Platform System.

CPS melds Azure, Windows Server and System Center to deliver an “Azure-consistent cloud in a box.” This is sort of “son of” the Azure enterprise appliance Microsoft announced four years ago with…

This is madness

If you’ve been following the news about the shooting of 18-year-old Michael Brown in Ferguson, Mo. and the resulting standoff between police and crowds of protesters and mourners, you know that Twitter has played a key role in spreading the news of the unrest (along with YouTube, Instagram and other social platforms). Twitter’s head of data science Simon Rogers pulled all of the geo-tagged tweets that mentioned Ferguson and used the CartoDB tool to create an interactive map that shows how awareness of the violence in Ferguson spread throughout the network.
