How To Be A Designer Like Steve Jobs


This book is probably the first book ever e-published to be read on a digital screen.  Using the latest in scientific research, the book is specially constructed to make reading it on a mobile device, tablet, phone or computer, easier to understand, easier to follow, and with 40% more retention.  But enough about the book.

This book gives you a framework of how to become a transformative digital designer like Steve Jobs.  It is the Steve Jobs recipe that involves excellence in the person as well as excellence in design.  For excellence in the designer person, it follows the Ten Living Principles of Eastern thought, applicable to the designer's life and his or her work.  It reveals the three major components that are now required in this day and age, to make an design a success.  It shows how to infuse your designs with the one element that everyone is looking for.  It also provides a cognitive tool box to allow anyone to design things that change the way that people interact with technology and themselves.

But even more than all of the above, this book is a call to action.  It is time to hallmark the digital world with personal excellence in execution of design. If there is one thing that the world needs more of, is transformative digital designers.  It could be you!

The dump in Nassau is on fire .... again !!!!!!!


Just like a bad "The Simpsons" joke, the dump in Nassau is on fire and burning again.  Me -- I think that the dump operators start the fires and blame arsonists to burn excess garbage. Just my 2 cents, or 5 cents as they say in the Bahamas.

Why religious nuts and extremists are the way they are!

Toothless Tiger! Tiger Woods Gets Tooth Knocked Out ~ Hair & Teeth Transplants

We all know that Tiger Woods has a bad back, worn out from power swings. His knees also can be a little shaky, especially when being chased in his SUV by a mad ex-wife after she found him skanking around.  It seems that his body parts need replacing.

He has already lost his hair, and as you can see in the pic below, his hair transplants are coming along.

The latest is that he will need a tooth transplant.  His erstwhile girlfriend is skier Lindsay Vonn, and he went out to watch her ski.  There was a scuffle and Tiger was hit with a TV camera knocking out his tooth.  Check out the gap in radiator below:

However, the tooth was already discolored because he took a driver to the mouth after his ex-wife found about his dalliances, so the tooth, like his marriage was essentially dead at that moment.  It took a TV camera to deliver the coup de grace to the tooth.

Given his recent golf performances, it is indeed fitting to call him a Toothless Tiger.

Cars That You Rarely See in North America Mitsubishi Diamante Espada

(click on pic for larger image)

This car belongs to a colleague of mine in the Bahamas. It is a Mitsubishi Diamante Espada, made solely for the Japanese market.  Japanese cars are imported into the Bahamas because they drive on the left hand side of the road in Japan, as they do in the Bahamas, and this car is a right hand drive -- the steering wheel and driver's side is on the right.

The Diamante Espada is a full-sized luxury car. It was also made for the Australian market called Magna instead of Espada. I drove this thing, and even though it was quite old, it still drove well. This car was made between the years 1997 and 2005.

Bill and Hillary Clinton ~ The Early Days as Hippies

(click on picture for larger image)

A read sent me this pic of Bill and Hillary Clinton in the early days.  Man they sure looked like hippies, in the hippy era that they lived in.  Bill had the long hair and beard.  He looks bookish with the stack of books in his hand, nothing like the Bubba image that he portrayed with his saxophone and love of McDonald's cheeseburgers.

One would never bet looking at this picture, that you were seeing a future president of the United States and a highly successful one at that.

More Haitian Fleeing Their Homeland To The Bahamas


The human rights record of the Bahamas is not very good.  This is how illegal Haitian immigrants escaping the grinding poverty and horrible conditions in Haiti are treated once they land in the Bahamas.  What does the average Bahamian have to say about this?  Fred Smith is a Bahamian lawyer advocating for them. Here are some sample comments from the newspaper when this pic was printed:


  • Ahhh they are used to worst conditions Mr. Smith...I'm sure you see and know the vessels they arrive in



  • all I see is a trailer load of parasites.



  • .............. Fred Smith The Haitian Advocate Jackass ....



  • A cage has 6 sides not 5 you dumb Haitian parasite! Your Haitian brethren are SITTING in a topless landscape type trailer for security and their own safety.



  • Wish YOU were with them Ashlock!

As you can see, the state of enlightenment and human values is quite low in the Bahamas among the natives.

What Barbie looks like after the Holiday Season


After me being a pig during the holiday season, I feel like the Carbie Barbie above.  That is what Barbie looks like after pigging out on all of the food during the past Christmas and New Year and Holiday season.

Time for New Year's Resolution, and hitting the gym. In the shape that I am in, Fat Barbie is the girl to match my girth.

Imagine keeping in touch with someone with the click of a button. This includes people like:
  • Faraway Friends
  • Kids at college
  • Deployed military
  • Elderly parents
  • Sick Relative
  • Lover
  • Long distance Relationship
  • Loved ones travelling to strange countries
Click4Me2U is a simple quick hassle free Android app that provides a way to keep in touch in less than a second. Just a click makes a connection with a reassuring message in return. Easy and simple app makes staying in touch easier than ever before. Peace of mind now comes with a click.

This app was developed after hearing the following:

  • "I will die and rot in my apartment and nobody would know!"
  • "My daughter is away at college and she doesn't answer my text messages. I am worried about her. I wish that I could just know that she is okay."
  • "I'd like to call my lover and let her know that I am thinking about her, but they don't allow personal phone calls at work."
  • "I'd want to keep in touch with my cousin, but I don't know what say in a text or an email."
  • "My mother is elderly, lives far away and doesn't know how to use a computer. I would like to keep in touch with her."
  • "My wife is having a difficult pregnancy, and I want to know that she is okay while I am at work."
  • "My girlfriend is an airline stewardess, and I want to know she is safe when she flies oversees."
  • "We have a long distance relationship, and we can't afford the phone calls."
  • "My friends are travelling to a strange country, and I want to know that they are safe."
  • "I am thinking of my BFF and just want to let them know."
  • "My fiancee is deployed in the military and we have trouble staying in touch."
This app was tested and approved by Amazon to work on the following devices:  All Android devices and tablets including Samsung Galaxy; Android Smart Watch; Kindle Fire HDX 7 WAN (3rd Gen); Kindle Fire HD 7 (3rd Gen); Fire HDX 8.9 WiFi (4th Gen); Kindle Fire (1st Gen);

An iOS for Apple is in development.  This app is brand new, and expected to be an easy way to keep in touch, even for people who are not computer literate and cannot send an email or a text.  All that they have to do is click a button.

What could be simpler than clicking a big red button on a screen once a day, once an hour, or once in awhile to let someone know that you are okay, or that you are thinking of them? It is that simple with this app. Open the app on a Kindle, an Android device, phone, smart watch or tablet, and letting someone know that you are okay is just a click away. The only effort to touch someone, is to touch a screen.

A woman gave this app to her estranged father, and it brought them closer together. The simple communication of a click transcends many words.

In this brave new world, just a little click sends and returns a lot of caring thoughts.

Celebrities Who Are The Same Age


It's hard to believe that Kate Upton and Selena Gomez are the same age.  Kate Upton definitely looks more mature, even though Selena Gomez was dirtied up by Justin Bieber. (oooooh can't erase that mental image -- gross!).

1979 Clip Art, Kentucky Fried Chicken Ad & Community

 click on pics for larger image

Here are a couple of more pieces of 1979 clipart that I salvaged from an old newspaper.  The old KFC ad really brings back memories.  Those were the days when a KFC leg and breast were huge and a meal unto themselves.  These days, the KFC chickens are the size of robins, and you would need an 8-legged hen to get as much meat as a two-piece dinner in 1979.  Plus you got a piece what they called "Grecian Bread" that was a doughy white thing slathered with "butter" or some sort of oleo.  It tasted wonderful!  Those were the good old days when nothing was bad for you, even smoking.

Product Review - Hipster MP3 Player


The main switch on my iPod Nano 6th generation went (due to a fault glue job on behalf of Apple, I might add) and I saw this Hipster player in WalMart for around $23 bucks.  The old adage in this case works -- "You get what you pay for.".

First of all, it was difficult to learn how to use.  You need a lot of button clicks to where you want to go. To get it to work in the first place, I had to watch the movie that comes on a mini cd in the packaging. The manual was of no help.

Less than three weeks later, I plug it in to recharge (doesn't last very long -- battery life of say 3 hours max), and when I unplugged it, there was a huge yellow streak across the screen. The screen is now divided and cannot be read.  I didn't drop it or anything.  It just appeared.

It still played music for a few days, and now it just plays the first few seconds of a song and skips to the next one.  Piece of crap.  I don't have the packaging to get a refund.
