A New Way to Blog-WebOS

A New Way to Blog is WebOS
WordPress is adding, a cool way to blog on HP Touch pad.
It is called WeBbOS.
They say they will add this feature to other Touchpads soon with WYSWIG (What You See What You Get) approach.
Apple ipods will have to wait and probably customers will beg for it to be included in its applications list which is huge. in thousands.
Which is one reason I promote Ubuntu’s Unity approach, catch and go with the trends setters of modern age determined by OEM guys producing new gadgets.
It is sad the ones who paid for netbooks, have to buy another gadget and put the netbooks in the skeleton cupboard.
Unlike few years ago, new devises reach the market within a year of innovation except for  3 years as in the past.
I hope Kindlier also take giant strides.
It is heart worthy to note Amazon is introducing audio books for the visually handicaps.

Nothing is going to be roadworthy unless the software catch up with the gadgets that come by dozens.

Multitasking

There is some system lag when one tries to do multitasking with TouchPads.
This I consider a teething problem, every new gadget will have but given few years from now Linux in the fringe (not windows) will do all these faster than it is today.
There is lot of background activity when you activate any gadget.

I think now Linux has to refine time sharing activity to nanoseconds and not milliseconds. I believe Linux can achieve this with tweaking and compression and possibly adding a swop partition to its hard disk (small disk-SSD) upping the RAM memory.

Below is a comment I borrowed and reproduced from a tech writer.

The philosophy baked into the iPad of one app at a time might be viewed as a shortfall in some folk’s eyes, but it results in a smooth, consistent user experience for all of the millions of owners. Do one thing and do it well was advice from my Dad growing up, and it has served me well. It is serving Apple well too.

Postscript.

This was written before the bust up of HP and with it the WebOS.

It is time for the Linux guys and wordpress in particular to grab the opportunity and develop WebOS into a Universal Utility that everyone can have it and use it in any form of tablet (any OEM) which will hit the market including Apple’s iPad.

Web Etiquette and finding a suitable webbing name for blogging and browsing.

Web Etiquette and finding a suitable webbing name for blogging and browsing.
I searched over 100 web pages to find my web entry (accidental) on a blog site and what I discovered was something I should write here and is important for several reasons.
It is remarkable that several tendencies of the SMS age is evident.
1. Most of them were blogging for fun and only a very few for humor or satire.
The world without humor for me is not worth living and boring.
I like the subtle humour as opposed to crude humor where one has to tickle one’s arm pit to initiate the process, almost self induced.
Humor has to be infectious and spontaneous.
 The modern age of computing it it is noteworthy of its lack.
The worst of satire in Linux terms is flamming which I am opposed to.
I was brought up in a age of discussion and discrete disagreement and not infighting but that is what one sees today.
2. Second observation I notices was one does not know how to use a pseudonym or what edifiers call the screen or newspaper adopted name for acting and freelance writing.
The problem with this is that one wants to search for self to see how one fares in the Wild Web as opposed to Wild West of yesteryear is that the pseudonym does not appear when Googling and often to the disappointment to many. 
That is the topic here but I should state one more of my observations before getting into that topic.
3. Most of the young ones start blogging after some personal grieve (not death) and disappointment. 
Often break up of love affairs. I often think breakups are good for many to learn real life situation before getting into serious commitments which most of them are not yet ready.
It should be of positive dynamics rather than negative so to speak.
So blogging is not a bad thing to pass over the tide but I found a serious impediment there.
It is like this if one is attending a a diabetic clinic for the young and fall in love with a diabetic i am in noway encourage that.
Two bad genes and you (the two) end up with many diabetic children as parents. 
Getting to know another diabetic is a good for one’s soul to learn to cope with but not to get married, for heaven sake.
My observation confirms that there was unhealthy pairing.
To emotionally labile getting together leads to disaster
Falling from ditch to a very deep pit which is worse than two diabetics getting together where on can treat with insulin.
This is sure recipe for more disappointments and even suicide.
At that stage what you need is a sympathetic friend (not a lover) and a very good counsellor with adult stature.

Coining a suitable pseudonym has to be done with care.
It is often trial and error.
I will come out with a story.
I went abroad for a short holiday and the idea was to buy a laptop without an operating system and to boot it at the airport with a Linux CD while waiting for the plane before check in call.
I actually did that.
When I went to several places knowing that I was foreigner they wanted to sell me (more profit) always with an operating system
Eventually it end up almost with a fight but I did not cave in.
For my like at last I found a very nice charming salesgirl who quoted me  a very reasonable price whiteout an operating system (boss did not want it that way).
I had show the guy I was not a stupid foreigner and pulled out a Puppy Linux from my front shirt pocket and booted up and in with the internet and typed Linux and my Christian name.
Presto!
There were 20 of my entries including Gonbas, Gembas and Gambase in Linux.

My friend who was residing in that country too was amazed and he was a computer guy. 
He helped me to go to the correct warehouse of course.
Without much a do we closed the deal.

Irony was the word Linux. It is very little used in the web and my Christian name was very, very common.
It was all fortuitous but worked for me.
If one has a common name like Sara or David one can still work with it without adding numericals.
I change paradox to parafox and it is the name I use here.
Then I start using not prefix or suffix like in English.
Tailing words combined.
1. Saralive or seralive or sierralove
2. Davidknock, Davidcook or Davidcock and the vagary is almost limitless.
The word is not a English, Name or a English Word and it will hit the top of Google engine in no time.
For French it is very easy.
Just combine se, le, la to make one word.
Presto.
Only nearest word that came near my parafox was in fact French.

I use fox to fox the foxes live, like the Channel 4.

I hope you got the onions and foxes right by now. 
Hope yup, you rise to the top in the web of antonymous
