Mmm mmm good!

I’m really not a huge sweets guy! I’ll almost never order dessert while out to eat.

Say no to dealerships

I own a big truck! I like my big truck, it’s fun to drive. On top of that, it’s great for work and it hauls like a dream! I bought it from one of the local dealerships here in London.

While she pulling out her laptop to go over the proposal, she proudly pulled out a brand new MacBookAir! When I say, she was proud, she was PROUD!

As we went over the proposal, she was was very proud of the beautiful proposal that she had created in numbers. Read more »

Apple’s Foxconn Problem

Earlier this week I was doing one of my favorite things, talking with my good friend Andy Oudmann on his radio show, London Today, on AM1290 here in London. He had brought me on to talk about a potential issue with Wi-Fi in the classroom, which it a post for another day. Once we finished that discussion, Andy asked if I could stay and talk about something else after a commercial break, which I agreed to. When we got back from commercial, Andy told me he wanted to talk to me about a CTV report that focused on the labour conditions at FOXCONN’s factories in China that were specifically directed at Apple.
