Techerous

My name is Bill, I am a recent graduate in Information Sciences and Technology from Penn State University and this is a place for me to post or give my 2 cents on the fascinating world of technology. I am now working for a pretty big technology related company whose name I will leave out just to avoid any possible complications, however far-fetched them happening may be. Music gets included from time to time as well.

How Obama or Romney Should Have Answered the iPad Question

Exactly what I was thinking when this question was asked. Personally I thought Obama’s answer was a little more on track than this guy gives him credit for, but due to the nature of the election both sides weren’t willing to admit the hard truth.  Some in this country may think it’s nuts to not want every job available here, but some jobs are just not worth what an American wage would be. We should be focusing on training our workforce and creating a supply of skilled, qualified workers that are involved in the part of the process that can’t be duplicated anywhere else.

Obama's chief tech officer: Let's unleash ingenuity of the public - CNN.com

“The president is a hugely enthusiastic proponent of the power of data, technology and innovation to advance national priorities. Probably the highest compliment I can pay him is that his geek quotient is very high.”

Why is Silicon Valley silent on CISPA?

This is why we have to find a way to get everyone’s attention this time. Unlike what I’m seeing a lot of people say, the truth is these bills are very different, particularly in that this one actually benefits companies. The fact that it negatively impacts your privacy doesn’t concern them. There isn’t going to be a Google or Twitter joining in on a blackout date to reach the apathetic masses. I want to believe that this will get crushed by the senate/president as they claim, but let’s not leave it up to them and create another fight. SOPA proved that people do care about online rights and honestly this bill attacks ones that probably affect them more.

"Within the next five years, we will make it possible for business to deploy the next generation of high-speed wireless coverage to 98% of all Americans. This isn’t just about a faster internet and fewer dropped calls. It’s about connecting every part of America to the digital age. It’s about a rural community in Iowa or Alabama where farmers and small business owners will be able to sell their products all over the world. It’s about a firefighter who can download the design of a burning building onto a handheld device; a student who can take classes with a digital textbook; or a patient who can have face-to-face video chats with her doctor."
