Tweet Follow me As of this writing, Google-YouTube is doing evil. It’s preventing any blog related post that has YouTube in its title from showing up in the blog search section of Google’s search engine. That’s right. If you do a search for “YouTube” and then press the “blog” link to see what blogs are writing, all you’re going to get back is a list of YouTube videos, and not blog posts. That’s not by accident. It is apparently Google YouTube’s gaming...

Tweet Follow me The Oakland Art Murmur Administration has left a statement on the website of the organization in the wake of last night’s First Friday shooting, where the killers are still at large as of this writing. The Oakland Art Murmur is deeply saddened and shocked by the tragic shooting that occurred in the Uptown area last night in Oakland. We offer our prayers to the families of the victims. We also offer our prayers to the city of Oakland, the state of California and the entire country. This another...

Tweet Follow me “Dear TMZ” goes the top Twitter Trend for today (one of them) because TMZ has said there are photos that have Justin Bieber and Lil Za, and Lil Twist with codine and Sizzup. But they don’t show the photos asserting that claim. Big error. Oh and if you recall, I met Lil Twist at CES, when he rolled out his headphones: If Justin Bieber, Lil Twist, and Lil Za’s representatives wanted grounds to sue TMZ for defamation of character, this is their best chance to do so. It’s...

Tweet Follow me The First Friday Shooting is a horror and a tragedy that Oakland and Oakland Art Murmur must overcome. The video made by this blogger shows the awful scene of a Downtown Oakland empty of life, with police cars and crime tape. That’s not the Oakland we want to have. The only way to not have that happen is to keep Art Murmur and the street festival going. But the only way I can see to curb the violence that’s happening is to have something like The Guardian Angels in the crowd, and...

Tweet Follow me http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Dekbi6qnyj0 Oakland Art Murmur Shooting rocks Uptown, Oakland. The Oakland Art Murmur’s positive energy was ruined by the negative energy of a homicide. A four people were shot, one killed, between 20th and 21st and Telegraph Avenue – the local heart of Oakland’s “First Friday” or “Art Murmur” gathering. As this blogger came upon the intersection, it was blocked off by tape and steel fences. A young man told me he heard...

Tweet Follow me The Waiting Room, last year’s award-wining, independent documentary about Oakland’s Highland Hospital, spun off the Storytelling Project, a “location-based social media and community engagement initiative that aims to improve the patient experience through the collection and sharing of digital content”. I was particularly taken by “Breathing Lessons” a 2-minute clip featuring 7 year old Nia Walker who was brought into Highland by her recurring asthma attacks. In his recent State of the...

Tweet Follow me http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3tbZk223n0w This was so bad. The folks at Worth Ave Group Insurance were making fun of my cracked iPhone at MacWorld today. The thing is, the damn thing has been in that state for the last five months, and still works like a charm! The bottom line is if you think of getting insurance, visit Worth Ave Group before something happens to your iPhone, not after something happens. ...

Tweet Follow me http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IWddk70DhHo The OlloClip is an incredible app that turns your iPhone into a terrific multi-lens video or photo-taking device. It attaches to your iPhone 4, 4s, or 5 and as the video shows, really makes a difference. This blogger interviewed Lena of OlloClip, who wasn’t convinced she could do a great job on camcorder, but as you can see, she really was effective.

Tweet Follow me Pete’s Harbor (located in Redwood City, CA) continues to be plagued by people leaving unwanted items that are a hazzard – in this case, a boat that was apparently abandoned after being tied up to an outer harbor dock without notifying the harbor master or marina operator. That’s a danger. Police are investigating the circumstances surrounding the boat’s abandonment on Wednesday and to determine where it came from and who it belongs to. An abandoned boat creates a nuisance and...

Tweet Follow me Chris Culliver is smartly backtracking from the stupid, idiotic, but also honest expression of his dislike for gay players in the NFL. Chris Culliver hurt the 49ers image just days before the Super Bowl on Sunday, but did open a door for us to see where bigotry comes from – fear of the unknown. Whatever he’s afraid of, it will not come to pass. Chris Culliver said “The derogatory comments I made yesterday were a reflection of thoughts in my head, but they are not how I feel. It has...

Tweet Follow me The NFL has released the Super Bowl XLVII injury report from Wednesday, and it has a few surprises with Niners Linebacker Ahmad Brooks and Aldon Smith seeing limited action in practice due to a shoulder problem.

Tweet Follow me http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DZCck8vnI4U Hadiya Pendleton was just 15-year-old, and shot in the back by someone who opened fire in a park near her high school on January 29th. That was this week, after Hadiya attended and performed in the 57th Presidential Inauguration in Washington DC. She went from the highest high to the lowest low, and for no good reason. The day before, an 8-year-old, who’s identity has not been released, was killed in a drive by shooting in Oakland. And the week...

Couldn’t get this lone Ravens fan to do the Ray Lewis dance, but he did give instruction on how to do it. Maybe I can get him to try it today! Stay tuned. Oh, my current prediction is Ravens 32, San Francisco 21, but wanting the Niners to win, I may change that, or just make two picks: one head, the other heart. ...

It basically syncs with your iPad and protects in in a hard-covered shell case. It also has a keyboard that’s as hard as the rest of the iKey Street Case. This is a great product for, say, the Oakland Police Department to use for its iPads, if and when they start using them extensively. It’s also great for real estate professionals...
