Geek Smack! Geek News:
Geek Smack! Topic of the Week: In the Last 3 Weeks…
I say, let’s talk about it all.
First Yahoo – Jerry, this should have happened years ago. MegaUploads – When you go with a questionable company, you get a questionable product. Let’s hope you didn’t put something up there you need and made backups.
Google – It’s nice to have one policy, instead of a series of documents. We’ll have to see if it adversely affects Google.
Finally, the State of the Union. I refer to the line from the movie “Con Air” – Define Irony: A President that says we should penalize a company for taking Jobs overseas, but highlights a company that publicly denounced the workers in the US. If you didn’t notice, the SOTU bumped Apple’s stock up $25 /share.
