On The Kindle Fire

Amazon now has a reasonably priced Android based tablet available for preorder. I’m not totally sold on the Kindle Fire. The initial price point is encouraging, but the lack of a clear upgrade path is disturbing. Will favorable economics of scale be able to reduce the price point to around $149.99? A fifty dollar price drop would certainly create substantial demand for the Kindle Fire.

Right now, I am researching keyboard options for the Kindle Fire. Will the Kindle Fire integrate with the Android Marketplace? I own a few games and I am hoping they will be transferable from my HTC EVO to the Kindle Fire.

Alternatively, I could just buy a Bluetooth keyboard for my HTC EVO and consider purchasing an HTC EVO 3D. More or less (for better or worse) I really would to be able to create weblog posts or massive amounts of prose on the go or while traveling.

NBA Regular Season Questions

Will anybody notice if the National Basketball Association (NBA) failed to play any regular season games this year?

Nobody really cared when the National Hockey League (NHL) skipped the 2004 to 2005 season. I think the NBA might be overvaluing their stock by about 40%  to 60%.

Consider for a moment average game attendance…

During the 2011 season 893,462 people attended a total of 41 Chicago Bulls home games. By comparison during 7 home games 782,776 attended University of Michigan football games. If a college football game can draw in over 100,000 people per game, then how does the NBA stand satisfied with a league best average of 21,791 per game?

Press Release: Help Bring a Honey Badger to Colorado Springs

In case you were wondering, you can help bring a honey badger to Colorado Springs. A new philanthropic website just launched tonight COS Honey Badger dot org.

  1. I plan on filling out the paperwork to form a non-profit organization in the State of Colorado.
  2. The donation section will be setup after the non-profit organization has been setup.
  3. We will solicit t-shirt designs later this month.

National park office decorations

Yep, it seemed like a strangely long day. Some days just seem to take longer than others. I finally got to move into my new office. The walls seemed a little empty and bland. Starting tomorrow my office walls will be adorned with posters that commemorate some of my previous visits to national parks. How many wall posters can an office handle? I’m thinking 3 or maybe 4 wall posters might work.

Will the new Fox television show Terra Nova be picked up for a second season?

Who knows when the new Apple iPhone 5 will be released?

Will Apple decide to maximize efficiencies from very large economies of scale by using iPhone 5 components to power the new iPad 3?

Weekend Activities Reconsidered

Apparently, the Joni plan involves some type of activity during every day of every weekend. My weekend may very well involve a trip to Costco or maybe even Lowes.  After acquiring a Keurig Platinum B70 gourmet single cup coffee maker with 60 samples I have watched my supply of k-cups dwindle. Costco only sells a handful of K-Cup varieties. It would be nice if Costco sold a sweet variety pack. Outside of coffee considerations a trip to Lowes will probably involve looking at ceiling fans.
