Facebook Fake Hacking

I see this happening a lot lately. Why do people think they are cool by doing this? For one, you are not even hacking anything. The person ether - A. Left their Facebook open on their computer or B. Has their email and password saved to their browser of choice.

I don't even know why they call it hacking? It has nothing to do with hacking. It is called unauthorized use. As a matter of fact. If you do this. You are in breach of terms. Check it for yourself. https://www.facebook.com/legal/terms Check Section 3 sub-paragraph 5. You will not solicit login information or access an account belonging to someone else.

Although Facebook does not really enforce this term. I see it happening all the time. It gets annoying because so many people are doing it and claiming they hacked it! When in fact, a large amount of Facebook users do get hacked or phished every day! Is it worth reporting, not really. I doubt Facebook would even take action against it.

Hopefully the fad of doing it will stop on its own. I get tired of seeing people do it to a friend's profile, I don't want to unsubscribe them from my updates though. A majority of the time they post regular things. So I guess I will just have to bare with it for now. At least until it dies out or Facebook finally takes actions and deletes accounts because of it.

Oh wait, they wouldn't do that. They would lose out on all that advertisement money that user generates from pageloads.

Apple Beating PC In Sales - Really?

I have been a PC fan for a long time. I even worked for a company that did Apple Care support for Apple. When working on a iMac all day and then coming home to my PC. Which runs Windows 7 64bit. It got kind of annoying. Most of the people who called in didn't even know how to do basic things like. Ejecting the CD from the disk drive, just because there was not a button for it on the framing. The button is on the keyboard if you didn't know.

Apple is rich, I read an article about how they have more money then the USA government. Anyways, I still like to think differently about the sales. Yes Apple makes a ton of money from sales. Yet they offer more products. In addition, how do they base the sales of PC that run Windows? Do they take the sales of the main makers of them. Such as Dell, HP, Gateway. If they do, I think the sales chart is wrong. They are not adding into the equation that you can build your own PC from the ground up. Ordering parts and operating systems from sites such as Tigerdirect.com and Newegg.com. Which wouldn't even show on the OEM sales charts.

I have a lot of friends that are into computers. Hardly any of them own an Apple PC. They might own a iphone or an ipod. Yet when it comes to basic computing and gaming. They choose PC. For instance, not a lot of games are playable on the Mac OS. Heck  a lot of programs are not even made for Mac OS.

With that being said. Is Apple really the industry leader for Personal Computers? In my view of things. NO! I did a Google search for Mac vs Pc facts. I found this blog that broke the numbers down on which Operating System is more popular, statistically. The author says "Statistics show that Microsoft Windows has approximately 91% of the market share, while the Apple Mac OS has around 5% of the market share. The other 4% is owned by other operating systems such as Linux.". With that bit of info, it almost proves my point.

The author of the article went on to say this. (Note that I just copy and pasted, yet am giving full credit to those who deserve it)." Kelly Ford, the marketing and content head for Hunch, conducted an extremely helpful report that talks about “Mac people & PC people”. The report focused on their personalities from 3 perspectives: aesthetic preferences, media choices, and personality traits.
The key findings in the report were as follows:
  • Mac People are more likely to see the existing world in a light of “sameness” and thus express a desire to be perceived as different and unique. This is consistently reflected in their aesthetic choices such as bold colors, “retro” designs, one-of-a-kind clothing and highly stylized art.

  • PC People are more likely to see the world as “different enough already” and appreciate “being in tune with those around them.” This is reflected in their subtler, “mainstream modern” (neither retro nor extremely contemporary) design choices and their practical choices in clothing, footwear, and cars that favor getting the job done rather than making an overt design statement.

  • Media choices and preferences vary greatly between the two groups, with Mac People trending toward more independent films, specialized comedians and design-centric magazines, and PC People trending toward more mainstream alternatives as well as sports.

  • From a personality perspective, Mac People are more likely to describe themselves as “verbal”, “conceptual”, and “risk takers”, with PC People countering that they are “numbers oriented”, “factual” and “steady, hard workers”.".
Seems to me like PC is better for my stance in life. Mac may seem popular, but it is only popular to certain people, who are all pretty much the same in most areas of their lives. So to end this...PC ROCKS! Go Windows and keep making the work different!

Hashtags on Facebook

Recently I have seen tons of my friends using hashtags on Facebook. The bad part is, it isn't a cross platform thing with Twitter. They just say something as a status then #hashtag a phrase. It wouldn't bother me so much if they it was posted from their twitter, but most of the time it is posted from mobile or directly from Facebook. Here is a sample of what I am talking about.

I kept my name open, yet preserved the identities of everyone else. It must be the new thing to do. I don't quite understand why they use it like that. It used to just be *lovin life*, or something along those lines. It just bothers me that people are using technology wrong.

Not to say something out of place, but I notice that only certain people do this the most. I noticed the most used group of people (in my opinion) are African Americans, then 2nd comes in as the white people who want to be gangster/thugs...So I am not just saying that one group does it, but it seems like the genre of people are doing it. Maybe they was never taught how to properly use hashtags?

What do you think?

Americans Take Your Country Back

Americans need to wake up and realize that it will only get better if we make it better. We need to stop letting companies ruin this country. As a veteran of the Iraq War, this deeply disturbs me. I don't want to see my country fall apart. I defended it because I want to raise a family here and I love my country. Yet with the way the economy has been since my return in August of 2007. It has been a constant struggle. The U.S. seems like it has hit rock bottom, much like most of the friends I had before I left. Yet at least they can say their rock bottom was caused by the prescription pill epidemic. The only excuse America has is. Obama. Everyone blames him, yet in reality. It is our own faults.

We bailed out the banks while we were at war. Big companies pay off politicians to pass laws that let them benefit from something negative upon the country, company and persons who work for them. Bankers were bailed out, then gave themselves bonuses. Politicians receive money and make tons of money from the taxpayers, yet they complain and can't seem to come to an agreement on taxes. Which effects the general population more then it would them. Yet they will only pass something that will let them line their pockets with gold. It is a reverse Robin Hood. Take from the poor and give to the rich.

If in fact politicians were truly there to help the American people. They wouldn't have bailed out the banks for not doing their jobs and scamming the markets. It seems like the more crooked and corrupt you are in America, the more you can benefit from it. I try to live a pretty honest life. Yet I am poor. Should I do the wrong thing? It seems like it. Hey if bankers and politicians can do it, why can't I? Oh wait. I forgot. I'm not rich already or I don't hold a position of power to turn the tides in my favor.

Americans have forgot the essence of this country. For the PEOPLE, by the PEOPLE. Yet where are you people? Well to be honest, a lot of people showed up for the OWLs movement. We tried! Yet until Americans are directly effected, we will not stand up. Sadly I will say this...I don't want to but I am. We are lazy and do not care about the welfare of our countrymen.

We need to stop worrying about making a profit from something and start worrying about how to save humanity. Someone would rather make a dollar, then to help someone who is starving. To me this is sad. No I can't fix the problem myself, but at least I have the balls to stand up for what I believe is wrong and right.

It is wrong that the government allowed Police to break the laws, yet when citizens break the laws we get thrown in jails. We have the right to do these things, it says it in the Constitution and in the Amendments. Yet when we practice these, they come up with a loophole of how to stop us from doing it.

It is now or never America. Wake up, take our country back. These greedy politicians are not going to go down easy. I don't mean take up arms and rebel against your country. I mean take it down legally using laws already in place. Use the system the way it is designed and reclaim control!

5 Reasons to Play The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim

I have been playing The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim for about a week now. Yes I know I am a bit late, but I have it right? Anyways what got me interested in this game aside from the pure hype of it, was the fact that I had previously played The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion. As a fan of this game, I was very tempted to play the newer version of the series. Yet I was skeptical at first because of all the bugs and glitches from the previous version. As I sat down and started to play it, I noticed that getting the game was a great decision.

1. The game mechanic are much better. Upon playing for some time I noticed that you can't just run around and jump and sprint and gain a skill increase. Unlike its older brother, this was an issue for me. As it made the feel of the game seem a bit unreal. Yes I am sure in real life if you run around jumping, you will get better at it. Yet for game physics it would allow you to feel God-like. Jumping 15 feet in the air is not realistic, and for a game like Skyrim, you want it to be as realistic as possible. Even though it is a fantasy genre game.

2. The graphics are improved. I don't really have to show you to be able to tell, but I will. The fact of the matter is. Oblivion came out in 2003 and then Skyrim came out in 2011. Here is a visual of the character evolution from the two.

Picture found on Gamingbolt.com
3. Freedom to do anything you want. Well almost anything. The game is so open and so is the world. You be any type of character you. It has its limits just like any game does. Yet it doesn't force you to follow the story line if you wander off. In fact you can play the game without doing much of the storyline. It is up to you to complete it. You can always just follow your own path that attunes to your play style. The game doesn't block you off with an invisible wall that forces you to follow the story. This I like. A lot of games will make you follow the story. Yet with Skyrim, there are so many side quests and other things to do in the game. You could play for hours on end and not complete any of it.

4. Dual Wielding. Ah yes, who doesn't like to dual wield? Well magic caster normally don't like it, or do they? In Skyrim even as a magic caster you can dual wield spells. How freaking cool is that! This was something I always wanted in Oblivion. A lot of the times I just dodged the attacks anyways. With dual wielding you can take advantage of the extra weapons damage modifiers. When dual wielding spells it also allows you to use an overcharge ability that also has a modifier to it!

5. Skyrim has the ability to keep you engaged in play for what some say "hundreds of hours". The storyline, side quests, training of skills, exploration, and so on. Skyrim leaves little behind for almost any player. From what I read online, the fastest time someone has completed the game was in between 2-3 hours. For a game of this magnitude, if you completed it that fast, you skipped most of the fun parts. Rushed through quests, didn't read anything, and basically had the concept of how to beat it to begin with. You should play a game of this caliber to its fullest potential.
