Relevant bit: "I hate it when people call themselves “entrepreneurs” when what they’re really trying to do is launch a startup and then sell or go public, so they can cash in and move on..." - Steve Jobs #truth #bullshit #disingenuous #steve #jobs #entrepreneur #society #success #quote #hard #work #pub
Article says "When people write critically about Facebook, they often say that “you are the product being sold,” but I think that by now we all get that...Thus it is a critical choice of any adult as to where they will perform their free labor. Tens of millions of people made a decision to spend their time with the simple, mobile photo-sharing application that was not Facebook because they liked its subtle interface and little filters. And so Facebook bought the thing that is hardest to fake. It bought sincerity." This is complete BS. As commenter, TEDPAVLIC, states, "wasn't the original (sincere?) point of Instagram was to be bought by a company like FB? They weren't making any money. They were just developing good mobile software (whose web presence depended on _other_ websites) that could be easily plugged into a larger beast. Seems to me like they were begging to be bought. I'm guessing there was a decent return on that investment. So is Instagram that "sincere?" Wasn't Instagram meant for exactly this?" #stupidity #disingenuous #lies #sheeple #lemmings #social #media #mass #journalism #bullshit #selling #out #instagram #Facebook #pub
"To put the acquisition in perspective I pulled together data from a selection of 30 notable internet acquisitions over the last 10 years, from Broadcast.com to OMGPop to see if Facebook/Instagram for $1 billion was as crazy as everyone thinks. (I left out companies without public purchase prices or user stats.)" He even uses companies like Zappos and Skype...you know...companies with actual revenue models and/or profitability.

Black kid is killed coming home from work. Police walk in with another black kid holding the dead kid in his arms yelling for help. "Moore, 19, was arrested the following day and charged with premeditated murder and robbery with a firearm...The case against Moore fell apart, though, when a key eye-witness confessed to lying....Moore pleaded no contest to robbing Ruffin. Prosecutors dropped the murder charge... As part of his plea deal, Moore was sentenced to nine years in prison followed by three years of probation." Yes, same Sanford Florida of Trayvon and Zimmerman case. Lulz. #police #bullshit #justice #system #black #stanford #florida #pub

Alain de Botton examines our ideas of success and failure -- and questions the assumptions underlying these two judgments. Is success always earned? Is failure? He makes an eloquent, witty case to move beyond snobbery to find true pleasure in our work. #alain #botton #success #failure #meritocracy #society #elitism #bullshit #lies #perceptions #work #video #talk #pub
"It is impossible within the bounds of the Mac OS X software to remove the "Trash" icon from the Mac's Dock, however you can remove trash in the form of icons you don't want from the Dock" - By Heath Wright, eHow Contributor #funny #stupidity #bullshit #SEO #capitalism #example #demand #media #web #empires #pub
This site is linked to as a proper tech information source yet it is just either pandering content or linking to other places. Filled with ads. #whitehat #masquerading #linkbait #elitist #disingenuous #bullshit #list #summary #then #link #pub

Includes Appstorm, FreelanceSwitch, Tuts+, their marketplace, job listings site, and more. The amount of pandering this network does is insane and shows why whitehat and Google rankings are such bullshit. #web #network #motivation #2.0 #linkbait #pandering #bullshit #whitehat #empires #pub
"I guess it’s not enough Apple has hired every employee who worked on Delicious Library, they also had to copy my product’s look. Flattery?" __This relates to iBooks looking like Delicious Library__ #bullshit #apple #sucks #corporations #stealing #pub
Yeah Apple is real innovative (sarcasm), spends a fraction on research and development versus Microsoft (13%) or Google (13%) #bullshit #corporations #no #innovation #laurels #apple #R&D #pub
An example of a big site that is usually considered respectable, but here is a clear example of an article that goes through such basic crap - eHow style - in far too many words. Add on to all this the hypocrisy of whitehat apologists being against eHow, but not this site and well…lol #linkbait #bullshit #SEO #fluff #whitehat #content #pub
Same old problem of this sort of shitty site. They need to pump out content so they'll keep releasing linkbait worthless content and if there isn't a problem, they'll say there's still a problem to keep content flowing. #pandering #superficial #bullshit #productivity #p0rn #pub
