What did Apple do wrong with U2 album?

horse mouth photoI have read a few complaints about Apple giving away the U2 album Songs of Innocence. I don’t understand the outrage. I had ignored the ruckus until I read an article in one of my favorite blogs, Successful Workplace.

What did Apple do to incur this outrage? All the company did was give away an album that was going to be widely popular anyway. But instead people have come out against Apple for their generosity.

You may not love U2, but a lot of people do. Apple spent a reported $100 million dollars to give a gift to a lot of people.

I agree with this man

Man Frustrated by Ferguson Riots Goes on Legendary Rant: ‘It’s Time For Us to Change’

Following the shooting death of Michael Brown by the police in Ferguson, MO, and the riots that have ensued as a result, here’s Johnathan Gentry’s perspective.

This appears to be the original Facebook post and I want to give a shout out to it as well.

“Look Up” from your phone – there is a world out there

Great video. I hope all of my friends watch it. Or better yet, don’t watch it and have a real conversation (non-texting) with someone you love.

‘Look Up’ is a lesson taught to us through a love story, in a world where we continue to find ways to make it easier for us to connect with one another, but always results in us spending more time alone.

RANT! Geese will move out of the path of a car

Canadian GooseI am continually frustrated at drivers that come to a dead stop to let Canadian Geese cross the road. When the front car in the line waits for the geese to cross, it drives me to rant.

Geese will move very quickly to avoid a slow moving car. All the first driver needs to do is drive slowly into the parade of birds. Don’t drive so quickly as to hit the bird but slow and steady. The procession of fowl will accelerate their walk or even take to a short flight.

You won’t harm the birds by doing this. You may make them a little upset but there will be no lasting harm. In addition, you and the cars behind you can get on with their business.
