Remaindered Links for 14 May 2010

It’s been a while since I did one of these but my RSS feed reader has been overflowing with reads so I’m going to start doing these as I have links to share again.

iPad Gets Kitchen Cabinet Install
I expect to see a lot more of these kind of things with various touch screen interfaces. The benefits of a computer in the kitchen are numerous, from looking up a recipe to playing music to video chatting while working. It’s a matter of time until digital connectivity is laced throughout life.

We Are Out of Money
No matter how many “green shoots” people keep talking about, a simple fact remains: Government from the local to the federal level is living outside of its means and eventually, there’s one outcome: bankruptcy.

Students Get In Trouble for Wearing American Flags on Cinco de Mayo
Another sign of political correctness run amok, four students were almost
suspended over wearing the American Flag on Cinco de Mayo because it was deemed offensive to the Mexican-American holiday. Luckily the school board in the area disagreed with the Principal’s take on it and the boys were not suspended. I think they should have gone back wearing Gadsen Flags.

Tax Bills at Their Lowest Since 1950s
For those complaining that taxes are through the roof, the numbers say otherwise. People in 2009 actually paid about 9.2% of incomes, as opposed to the historical average of 12.

Chicago Mayor Daley Wants Gun Case Heard by World Court
Obviously not content to simply strip Chicago residents of their Second Amendment Rights, Daley wants to take the case the Supreme Court declined to the World Court in the Hague. Citing numbers that have been proven incorrect (e.g. 85% of Mexican guns come from the US, etc.) it’s just another attempt at pushing a ludicrous agenda of control. Mayor Daley, put a sock in it.

    I think the Daley issue is less about "control" and a little more about "hey, let's try to reduce the number of people getting shot in my city." Seems like a good idea to me.

  2. sean reilly says:

    (damn ipad error correction; see last name)

    Though I have to say that iPad cabinet thing is a fantastic idea. I tried doing something similar with a frankensteined powerbook a couple years ago, but the input method and software just wasn't up to it.
