Radiation…

I think people are downplaying radiation popping up around the USA and other parts of the world.

The key phrase always mentioned is, “…is not harmful.”

I think that the phrase should be prefixed with–“not yet.”

I believe that the “not yet” is going to happen sooner rather than later. With dramatic (horrible) effects.

Just like it’s being said that radiation levels are the highest they’ve been since the beginning.

So clearly the situation is not improving and if the radiation can reach all these regions in low levels it can also arrive there in high levels.

Now the worry of sea contamination and even radiation in the drinking water in Massachusetts(!)

Indeed radiation is manageable (up for grabs) in specified amounts; it is known that radiation is harmful regardless of amount. –it’s still radiation. The less you’re exposed to the better.

I fear for Japan and the surrounding areas. As well as any other areas that they may be affected in the future.

Music Industry Wants $75 Trillion

This just proved once again that I was right four years ago.

The music industry is insane. No one should listen to them.

They want anywhere in the range of $400 billion to $75 trillion

But Washington, D.C. has. So has Barack Obama–especially him.

His Copyright Czar  (oh, so illegal I may add) running around along with Homeland Security and ICE shutting down and seizing domains left and right.

Even explaining  why Google hasn’t been seized.

All in the name of copyright. All because of the MPAA and RIAA.

Mars is Green?

So I haven’t written anything in almost a year.

Now Mars is Green?

Yeah.  Mars is Green and dmotion is The Green Face.

Almost six years ago I was just dmotion: Investigating, and Then Commanding–now: Mars is Green: Sage Oversight is Renaissance.

It’s taken me almost six years to decide on a domain name and actually go ahead with it. (Among other things.)

The name–the statement: Mars is Green is what this is.

Mars–in Roman mythology (Ares in Greek) is the God of War and an agricultural guardian. Both which require oversight–sage oversight.

Green is associated with rebirth–renaissance…

This is my rebirth per se…

My rekindling of this site.

(Also Spike Spiegel is from Mars. I like Mars. I like green and I like stuff being green. Had to make it work.)

The iPhone & AT&T…

I can attest to the fact that the iPhone has forever tainted and ruined my image of Apple.

Had the iPhone been my first ever Apple product I don’t think I would ever seek to purchase another one of their products.

However it is not but my likelihood of purchasing another iPhone is null.

In the past, one purchased an Apple product and everything worked in sync. If it didn’t Apple customer service took care of it and you were satisfied.

Either way I am paying for their mistake for their inadequacies
With the iPhone it was not so. The missing link is service. The service is from AT&T and they certainly do not share Apple’s past view of service and quality. In fact Apple’s more recent behavior has been akin to that of AT&T and less a shadow of their former self.

I enjoy my iPhone for all the aspects that don’t involve the phone. For all intents I have an iPod Touch.

One of the main reasons my image of Apple is ruined is because I can’t use my iPhone as a phone. I can’t make a call inside of my house. I can’t use the data connection on my iPhone inside my house. In order to use the iPhone at home I have to step outside on the sidewalk next to my home.

This is unacceptable. If Apple decided AT&T was going to provide the ‘phone’ aspect of the iPhone which they did, then this is their fault–it is their fault. Apple made a product I can’t use.

However my bill is $100+

I don’t cancel my plan because I don’t want to pay the termination fee and lose the deposit I made. In spite that I had never been asked for a deposit from any other cell phone company.

When I complain about the lack of service they offer to sell me a device which uses my home connection to make up for the lapse of my service for a specified fee every month(?!) That’s insane.

Either way I am paying for their mistake–for their inadequacies. Why should I?

The thing that bothers me the most is that I know I am not the only one.

Then there is the other thing. My iPhone reads that it has no service. I call AT&T and they inform me that my phone has been disconnected.

Okay I say.

Yet they still send me a bill. As if I have used their poor excuse for a phone service.

When I call them none of the people I speak to know what to do about it. I’ve spent a literal two hours on the phone with AT&T and all they can tell me is that I need to open another account and do a deposit for $900.

I then tell them that is fine and well but how do I–what do I do to stop getting billed for a phone number that is not even active that I am getting billed as if it were active? Also that is still being billed under the phone number that has now been assigned to another person.

They tell me just to pay this remaining bill and I won’t get billed again.

Guess what…

I got another bill.

 The iPhone has forever tainted and ruined my image of Apple.

Apple has not done anything about it. I say this because they still offer the iPhone through them.
