Boston blacks: the African Americans, Caribbeans,  Haitians, Canadians, the Africans and others rarely support each other’s organizations like the National Urban League, the NAACP, the Haitian Reporter newspaper, the Bay State Banner, etc.. it may be  fair to say.

Over time, this blog service will create a mashup of organizations founded by distinct black ethnic groups in Boston.

Paris blacks look up to the African American these days. They are studying the Black American Civil Rights movement, giving props to Obama and educating themselves about how African Americans have achieved so much in the United States, despite being brought here as slaves.   Boston’s first blacks checked into town on the slave ship name “Desire” in 1600.

And so what, bloggers are questioning the lifestyle of Obama’s dad, so what? – there’s nothing to learn there except this: Blacks know each other but there are things blacks do not respect about each other.  Click the commentlink for this article to add your point of view.

Apple’s iPad in 5 digitalPlumbing dashes

leave a comment »

Watched Steve Jobs demo the iPad and it was so cool.
Go Steve!! You da man!!

Cool photo of the Amazing Motorola EnvoyDEAR STEVE: Did you ever see, sir, the Motorola Envoy wireless device? (photo to the left)

Do you know it could  send faxes too?  Can your iPad send a fax direct to a regular fax machine from anywhere?

I bet it won’t!

to wit:  we sent a fax from an Envoy while sitting on the Massachusetts state house steps, read our emails,  etc., but that was 20 years ago and  it worked wirelessly with little effort.

The Envoy is buried in vain now,  now this:

5 dashes from a digitalPlumber

– at less than $500 retail today, your  iPad seems like a winner! And, its got a black face plate cover.  Oh, wow!

– those schools who have stocked up on the Amazon Kindle should return them

– don’t know the facts yet, but if you gotta pay Apple big licensing fees to make software that will run on it, then its a PROBLEM.  If the iPad software licensing policy descriminates against FOSS programers then they should be pissed about this.

–  Apple should co-invest with  LTE wireless technology companies to insure this thing will run  everywhere there is oxygen and LTE cells on the planet.

– prediction: African entrepeneurs who live in areas on Africa’s continent where there is no governmental mission to administer and monetize waste disposables could enjoy the largest profits by producing and selling  cool iPad  covers and cases for the unit as they work with those abundant raw materials their communities dump into the trash bin.
