China is this, China is that… So-called experts have said. Usually about whether they will go beyond the U.S. or not. But, no matter what, the social state of 1.3B people gets some close to her and is willing to disturb its neighbors plus remote ones. That’s the thing.
To prepare this oriental impact properly, we first have to see them straight and read them accurate. One-eyed speculation? Intentional simplification? No more!
How valuable is South Korea as an ally? What about the Korean Peninsula in a geopolitical perspective? People in my country—almost everyone—still think the former is dependent and close to the latter.
Back in the mid-20th century, the two were virtually the same. Nowadays, however, for free countries such as the U.S., one could be much higher than the other. Why is that? The hint is in what South Korea is doing outside the peninsula.
Looking back, he was eminent when in talking about the past and about theories. Applause here and there. But he left me with a shadow of a doubt when he entered the world he doesn’t know well: he started to deal with ins and outs of real-life politics, and environment issues. Finally into foreign affairs, he’s misleading tens of thousands of people, covering their eyes. His latest is at the top.
A webcast called JKJ-TV has provided economic and other insights for years in a libertarian perspective. It was kind of fresh air to many people tired of anti-government, social counterparts. Thousands of followers collected. Months ago, it changed its identity as a news cast—JKJ-News. And now, it’s about to charge.
But this tower started to lean as it covered things in a daily basis. In a few weeks, it became clear the cast came to its limit in many ways. As a seasoned subscriber, and also as a rebel, I pick up a scope and check it out deeply.
I would provide this as an evidence that upgrades in Windows world does not always mean getting better. But, don’t be relieved. The same came in the Mac world when Apple recently upgraded iWork to balance the desktop version with its web cousin.

Ups and downs of various comment systems for self-hosted WordPress blogs.
My favorite tech journalist Paul Thurrott is finally out from a corporate life and about to begin new on his own.
I left this comment on his reminiscence...
Oh… You titled this post so bad, ’cause this is not a good-bye, but a hello-again. :)
Like many others, the majority of my recent knowledge about Windows and the Redmond company has come from SuperSite for Windows. Thank you very much for that. So I strongly believe there should be a donation link in your new site to let us give you some back.
The following is my wish list for the new site.
Community. So that your followers talk to and discuss each other.
Improved comment system. So that people with social network accounts can leave their comment easily.
Contributors. You must have many friendly neighbors in the tech industry. So that some of your army can post their expertise.
Flat, responsive design.

This is what Marvel said when they found the latest trailer for Marvel’s The Avengers: Age of Ultron leaked ahead of schedule.
Have Shakespeare in mind? Prepare yourself for a trip to Italy in the middle age. It’s likely that he had been there for years. Even born there, says Shakespeare in Italy, BBC’s two-part TV factual. What does it mean? It means a freaking lot to every Shakespeare-dreamer.
In this presidential election, a slogan has been rising above. It is my country’s near-final step toward its own Share the Wealth movement. Expecting emotional, not rational, support from public, candidates for the slogan say they would swing the sword of regulations against big companies.
Last Thursday, Henry Edward Roberts, arguably the father of personal computer, passed away at the age of 68. He made an electronic kit named Altair 8800 in 1975. Soon the kit made two young men, moved from WA, popular.
On the day he’s gone, the two, now in their 50s, memorized him here .

Again, watch the video first. Already wide-spread, it shows a scenario with Courier device.
Courier in action
Some say it’s an another vaporware from the Redmond company. Is it? Look closer. The device in the video barely show any revolutionary. Each piece is clear and present technology. What looks truly amazing is the proper combination. Somewhere between OneNote and the following vision.

The thing is Courier looks almost away from the traditional, file-centric computing. And this approach was once tried and implemented by another player more than 15 years ago. It was the first device called PDA. Newton MessagePad wasn’t perfect. There was no connection, no camera, and of course no phone. However, it gave the world a new blossom of computing. I don’t remember who and where but it’s described as information-centric computing .
(EDIT: Read what happened later to the team that ignited Courier.)
