Jobs resigns from job, What’s next for Apple?

Published August 26, 2011 by ladyserenity92

Now that Steve Jobs has retired from Apple Computer, many are wondering what will become of the billion-dollar bubble? Steve Jobs has battled illnesses, losses and rumors over the years. His resignation came as a no-surprise moment. It had to happen sooner or later. Jobs has done a fabulous job making Apple into a household catchphrase instead of a name of a piece of fruit. Instead of discovering apple pies; he went the extra mile and invented different styles of pies to sell to consumers. Yep, the man was a real ‘Simple Simon’ and a Thomas Edison.

Losing Steve Jobs means a loss of one of many ‘wizards’ that cannot be replaced. If I tell you Jobs’ rags-to-riches story it would take four years to fill this blog. Jobs was a nobody to the bullies. By age 13, he already knew of his destiny. technology.

Steve Jobs has a long-lost sister. Author Mona Simpson(Anywhere but Here). She’s one ‘Simpson’ that he calls a ‘best friend’. He’s no Bart to his only living relative.

With the losses of  Nick Ashford, Phoebe Snow and so many other talented people exiting or passing on; the loss of  ‘The Modern Thomas Edison’ leaves a crushing hole to Apple’s piece of the pie.

So what’s next for the Billion-dollar Apple pie now that its pie-maker has called it quits?

So far Jobs hasn’t decided who his successor will be. Apple Computer sales has seen its billion-dollar pie burned in stocks.

With so many losses in Wall Street, what will become of the Billion-dollar bubble and its pie?

What’s Next for Apple?

What will Apple do now that its pie making has left his job?

Go for broke.

“What do you like about blogging?”

Published August 25, 2011 by ladyserenity92

The  joy of the result when I click the ‘publish’ button. When it comes to blogging it’s much more different than writing in a paperback notebook. With a blog I can go ahead and take my time on a subject. Nothings almost forbidden. With blogging, I do drafts on paper, computer then blog post. There been many things that are so fast paced; it’s hard to get that right story for my audience. That’s what I like about blogging. Taking your time at your own pace and getting responses. Although I don’t have many fans right now and I’m sending invites, my blogging style is what gets me going. It’s a kick in the brain.

School’s back!

Published August 24, 2011 by ladyserenity92

Wednesday was the first day of school in my town. It was a day that I thought would never come. I’ll sure miss them. It’s oh so quiet around here. I recently wrapped up Kim Dong Hwa’s The Color of Water. He has drawn and written three graphic novels(manhwas). The Colors Trilogy has often been called a graphic novel version of ‘The Gilmore Girls.’ With a mother-daughter style story line. It’s funny, Original and heartbreaking. Part-sexual awakening, part coming of age. The one thing that’s rare: even in the 19th or the 21st century, the roles mothers and daughters have in is their love for each other will always never part ways with time.

Yesterday was a rare earthquake on the east coast. It happened in the evening while I was rolled up under my covers in my  bed. I was having a ‘big-sleep’ moment in the coal-black night. I felt nothing. The quake never set a starch on me.

No one was hurt. No major  property damages either.

I reading Stephenie Meyer’s “The Short Second Life of Bree Tanner”. Not to mention listening to the book on CD as I read along. I came to the part where Bree and Diego find out that they were not only outsiders; they were pawns in a sick revenge war pulled by Victoria(She). As the story is unraveled, the fates of the two best friends are sealed by the Volturi.

The book is a cross between Hans Christian Anderson and the Brother’s Grimm. Can’t wait to find out what becomes of Bree and Diego.

Little Butterfly (Book review)

Published August 22, 2011 by ladyserenity92

I’ve read the omnibus version of Little Butterfly by manga-ka Hinako Takanaga. The graphic novel is about 15-year old junior high student Yuki Kojima and his first brush of young love with the lonely Atsushi Nakahara. The coming-of-age romantic omnibus graphic novel is sexy, dramatic, and poetic.

The graphic novel is a romantic coming of age story about two young men who make the leap of faith into the adulthood of love.  Between the two, the young men make a pact to leave their childhood behind and engage into forbidden love. In the novel, the butterflies represent their short-life of childhood as their school days come to an end.  There’s  graphic homoerotic bed scenes in the picture novel.  It’s best that teens 14+ have a go at it.

In the era of gay-bashings and lack of respect, tolerance and love; once you have read  Little Butterfly, your heart will open and you’ll be flying on air like a butterfly without wings.

Now at bookstores, online and your local libaray!

Go for broke!
