Apple iCar

There are rumors that Apple, Amazon and Tesla are developing robocars. Frankly, this cannot happen soon enough. Traffic in Silicon Valley is so bad that drivers cannot text or talk on the phone. They should not even listen to the radio. Just keep your eyes on the road and your hands on the wheel.

Here is a top ten list if Apple starts selling cars:

1. The stores are going to have to be bigger.

2. The car will require a special set of wrenches to open it.

3. There will be only one USB port to charge it.

4. You will have to buy a black vinyl cover for it to keep clean like Porsche’s from the 1990s.

5. If you are in an accident, you will have to exchange IP Addresses and call Apple Care.

6. The most expensive model will be gold plated. The cheapest model will be available in a range of colors.

7. It will be so thin most people will not be able to fit inside.

8. If the car is stolen Siri will lock the doors and drive to the nearest police station.

9. If you fall behind in your car payments, Siri will lock the doors and drive to the nearest police station.

10. Critics will still say Steve Jobs would have made a better one.

Valentine’s Day

Yesterday was Valentine’s Day. If you did not realize that until today, you are in trouble. :-) If you found someone, I am happy for you. If two people can get along, then there is hope for seven billion getting along.

Getting The Message

Occasionally someone will try to call me on the phone and not leave a message. This phenomenon is happening with lots of other people. If someone is unavailable (for any number of reasons) please leave a message. This should include your name and phone number. Speak slowly and clearly. Not everyone is always instantly available, but I will try to get back to you. Even better, send an email, so I can keep track of the conversation thread. Remember, I cannot get the message if you don’t leave one. Beep.

Measles Outbreak

There is a measles outbreak because some parents did not immunize their children. Parents want the best for their children to live happy healthy lives. One of the best ways to do that is to vaccinate them against preventable childhood diseases. You will not only protect your children but the lives of millions of people. Be a good parent and a hero. Get your child’s shots today.

Half And Half Not

On Jan. 19, 2015, Winnie Byanyima, Executive Director of Oxfam International reported that the world’s richest one percent will own more than half of the world’s wealth by 2016.

“The international agency, whose executive director Winnie Byanyima will co-chair the Davos event, warned that the explosion in inequality is holding back the fight against global poverty at a time when 1 in 9 people do not have enough to eat and more than a billion people still live on less than $1.25-a-day.”

Oxfam recommends several ways to fight growing economic inequality. Create a global goal to recognize and deal with income inequality. Stop tax dodging and start taxing capital and wealth. Raise wages. Pay men and women equally. Provide free universal health care and education. Make sure the poorest have a minimum income.
