iPhone vs. Android: We all Win

I love the below article, but not for the reason you're thinking. Although I am an avid Google user, and I like my Droid phone, I don't hate Apple or the iPhone. I own several iPods and plan on buying an Apple for my next notebook. However, I hate any market where one company dominates as much as Apple has been dominating the phone market. I want to see it more competitive. With Android growing, we will have an increasingly more competitive phone market. This will ultimately benefit consumers like me with lower pricing and better service. Aside from Android's market share growing on its own merit (and AT&T's horribly expensive and terrible network coverage), articles like this promote the great things that the Android platform is now able to provide. Keep growing, Android, and bring down those prices for all of us!

Accenture/Facebook Spending Money to Empower the Less Fortunate

What a great concept! Good job Facebook and Accenture. I much prefer this 'empowering of people' idea to the basic giving of aid that we've been doing for decades. Just like the old proverb says "give a man a fish and he'll eat for a day. Teach a man to fish and he'll eat for a lifetime". While we're at it, maybe we should employ this concept domestically. Instead of giving people money to get by, as in our welfare system, we should be empowering people to build a better life. This has such great potential to improve the financial and social well being of the world. I love it. Come on congress, I'm looking at you!
