Waiting for that revolution

I'm sure people in the 50s imagined the future of mankind to be so much different than what it is right now, they've all been expecting those underwater bubble cities, floating cities, hover vehicles, ultra fast air travel and much more, but in my opinion i believe our biggest accomplishments so far are creating and developing the internet and landing the Huygens probe, we definitely have the technology to get to that futuristic stage but we're being held back by politics. Many conspiracy theorists believe that the only reason the supersonic airliner Concorde is out of business is basically a plan that was set up by larger airline travel firms to take out the competition of supersonic air travel and in my point of view they actually make sense, yes of course the Concorde had it's engineering faults but i'm pretty sure they can be fixed, so why debunk the whole project?

I'm sure there had been many innovations that were buried just like the Concorde but they didn't grab much attention so here's the question, how long would it take for us to step over that political borderline that's stopping the scientific development?

A piece of my mind: Tree huggers? more like corporate agents

I'm sure we've all seen these videos around YouTube where they show you how evil a certain corporate is and how it's damaging the environment and suddenly the viewers believe they are now environmentalist and start fighting and arguing for the cause blindly. that's what happened in my economics class today "KILL THE EVIL CORPORATE!" said the rival firm, that how i would summarize the presentation given by fellow student in my macroeconomics class, so the presentation showed your typical video, dramatic music, poor little dead fishies and birdies, skinny African child and evil men in suits, it was about the bottled water business and how it's damaging to the environment, don't get me wrong I understand how this is a just cause to fight for and how dangerous this is but what happened later on is they starting naming names, "NESTLE! they produced bla bla bla bla killing cute billion bunnies bla bla bla, but on the other hand FIJI supported bla bla bla and removed harmful substances bla bla lba increased health bla bla bla fed the kids bla bla bla. tap water is nothing compared to fiji bad bla bla bla, you should ban every product from your school except ours bla bla bla" that's pretty much how it went on, now for the average educated mind it's clear how obvious this video is, it's basically an ad for fiji, and not even a subtle one yet tons of viewers actually stood for this cause and a week later I see a bunch of girls setting up a table in the middle of the campus distributing flyers that say BAN THESE PRODUCTS, THEY KILLED INNOCENT BIRDIES! so here's the good products, a bunch of unknown products that no one has ever heard of and of course, Fiji. really?

A piece of my mind: Anti-zionism and anti-semitism

So here's the deal, the other deal I was involved in a debate about Israel (big surprise!) and everything was going quite smoothly and we we're having a reasonable civilized conversation until I was called an anti-semite because I opposed the existence of a Zionist state that kicked a bunch of innocent families out of their own homes and claimed them as their own, hey don't get me wrong Zionist are welcome to claim a piece in the middle of the desert and start building a bunch of stuff in there. anyway lets get back to the matter at hands, I was called an anti-semite because of that, now let's think about Anti-zionism and anti-semitism, there's a HUGE difference between the two, bear in mind that there are tons of Jews who are anti-zionist, are they anti-semites?  I doubt it, just because you oppose the existence of an oppressing state that is controlled by a certain religious group doesn't mean you oppose the existence of that religious group as a whole, bear in mind that Seinfeld, my favorite show of all time is basically a Jewish fest. .

I just wanted to lay that out in the open, please think about that for a second.

Hi there

So it's been exactly 1 year, 1 month and 2 days since my last submission here, I know that I've abandoned this place but it seems that through all these years I'm lacking readers and subscribers, but it doesn't really matter to me, I've been using this place mostly as a journal :)

Anyway... about my recent activity, I've obviously shifted from the iOS category and i don't own an iPhone anymore, just an iPad which i didn't update since the day i first bought it. There is really no specific reason for abandoning that field, except the fact that I'm bored. I still remember the days when i was working on my iPhone E-book, it was a real pain, each time i finish a chapter, a new iOS update comes out and most of my work is considered outdated, i guess that's one of the main reasons why i stopped working on it, other than the fact that i lost my e-book files.

My interests are mainly editing, video editing, graphics, 3D design, visual effects, etc..
It's been almost a year and i think I've done pretty well, some of my work is published on my second youtube channel (www.youtube.com/spammyvidz), but the majority of my projects are not there, I've done a reasonable deal of projects and i abandoned some of them due to the lack of interests or other reasons.

So right now I have nothing to do, it's holidays season, and i have no projects to do, if you have anything that needs to be done, any video to edit (real life clips, gaming, etc.), any picture that needs to be edited, or if you are interested in doing some work together please contact me @ Mustafastation@gmail.com , i would gladly help.

Thank you.

iOS 4.2 on iPhone 3G should run faster

As everyone are now waiting for the IOS 4.2 Apple received so much negative feedback from iPhone 3G users running on iOS 4.x, I personally wrote this topic right after I installed it on my 3G (http://iraqtigers.blogspot.com/2010/06/ios-4-installed-on-iphone-3g.html) , users claimed that apple intended on purpose to make it run slow so they force them to buy the 3GS or 4 ,but apple declined and satiated that 3G users will definitely have faster performance on 4.2

Also few hours ago apple released iOS 4.2.1 for developers, although 4.2 is not released yet, I think because 4.2 will be released in few hours from now, I hope I'm right so I can test it out on my 3G

Movies You can't wait to see

Hello again
Ever watched a trailer of your favorite movie upcoming sequel, or just a movie that's too damn good? That's how I feel about few upcoming movies that I just can't to wait, on top of my list is Meet the parents upcoming sequel little fockers, that movie series Is my favorite and I really can't wait for December to watch it.
The other movie is Sherlock holmes part 2 , they movie is pretty good and it mixes up comedy with action in a very creative way, sometime in 2011 it will be released.

I've got a huge list in my mind of the movies I can't wait to see but I just can't think of any at the moment. What are some of the movies you can't wait for?
