The 4 major principles of Object Oriented Programming.

Do to my interest in Apple’s new programming language Swift, I’ve taken the liberty of explaining the 4 major principles of Object Oriented Programming. Encapsulation, Abstraction, Inheritance and Polymorphism.   The best way to explain it in my opinion is to use Pokemon. Encapsulate: You can tell Charmander to use Flamethrower. You don’t know what flamethrower […]

When did humans start thinking the earth was flat?

In ancient sculptures and drawings, the Earth was depicted as being round and Atlas was shown as holding the Earth in the form of a globe. At what point did “flat earth” become the dominant theory?   If you’re referring to the educated (leaders and elites) the answer is simple, They DIDN’T! Very few humans ever […]

Why TeamTreeHouse’s Tech Degree for iOS Development is NOT worth it

<rant> If you’re wondering or googling whether or not TeamTreeHouse’s Tech Degree for iOS Development is worth your time and money, think again. For someone who would ever be interested in this program, regardless of price ($599/mo), wants something in return. A job.   In this program, you learn Objective-C and Swift to build apps for […]

Voting in big elections doesn’t really matter.

Many have suspected it, but now it’s obvious that voting in big elections doesn’t really matter. In the past it hasn’t been much of a problem because voters (generally speaking) drank the Kool-aide and voted for the hand picked candidates.   Now you have leaders in the Democratic parties that say that the purpose of […]

Top people who were wrongly portrayed as heroes…

1. Steve Jobs is a classic example of why one should never meet their heroes. He was a total dick in person. No disagreement there, but a lot of his actions had a LOT of rippling effects through the tech industry; he managed to bring Apple back from the brink of collapse (with the help […]

How would a $15 minimum wage ACTUALLY affect a franchised business like McDonalds?

  We hear this debate all the time, but nobody ever seems to have an actual conclusive answer what would happen to these businesses if it happened. Everybody’s answers always seem vague or over generalizing – some say workers would have to be fired, others say prices would have to go up for consumers, others […]

My thoughts on Yahoo’s Article regarding Scientists killing the kingfisher bird.

Here is the article I am talking about. This story reminds me of the story of Prometheus, a 5 thousand year old Bristlecone pine tree in eastern Nevada that was cut down in 1964 to count it’s tree rings to determine how old it was.   The “scientist” broke his coring tool and was impatient […]

The Next 10 Years Of Automation and What It Might Mean For The Job Market

Regarding Automation with the perspective of law, these sorts of stories and the studies that underlie them tend to fundamentally misunderstand much of the practice of law. There is no objective reality in law.   There are no immutable laws of physics. There is no universally accepted way of interpreting and executing code. The heart […]

Want a lot more focus and no caffeine jitters? We’ve Got You Covered.

After a disappointing attempt with Addium, I decided not to give up on nootropics right away, good idea. Instead, I found a new brand of cognitive enhancing supplements called RISE by Nootrobox.   The Nootrobox Team sent me free samples (month-long supply – 60 capsules, two capsules a day) and here are my 2¢. Nootrobox RISE is […]

Magento vs. WordPress

Magento is a very hard open source platform with only “self-supported” support. WordPress on the other hand is much, much, much easier to use.   First of all, I agree that Magento is an excellent choice for e-commerce and is not meant for a small store, but I find disappointing in this article that there […]
