"Unsexy" Startups

In today's world, we tend to pay attention to the "sexy" startups. companies like Uber, Lyft, or AirBNB frequently grab our headlines. But there are plenty of great business in industries that most people find mundane: Laundry, Logistics, Auto Wreching, and Scrap Yards, just to name a few.   Here's an example: One of the largest Auto Wreching Companies internatonally is called Copart. All Copart does is buy wrecked cars (primairaly from insurance companies), and resell them to the publ

I was wrong...

On my last post about Quantum, I said that there was a 50/50 chance of the qubit collapsing into a 1 or a 0.

Quantum Computing | How does it work?

here  Quantum Computing. You might have heard of it. People call it the future, they call it "amazing", a "breakthrough. They are right. But how does it work? Let's break it down. First, the basics:   Moving on to Quantum:   Quantum Computing is complicated and this is a very short explanation with my knowledge, but it's something.

Wage Stagnation

Good article from 2012 on Engineering. Considering we are in a recession, this will become more and more true:   https://www.nytimes.com/2012/11/25/magazine/skills-dont-pay-the-bills.html?hp   To summarize the article, We don't have a shortage of Engineers in the US. We have a shortage of Employers willing to pay competitive salaries to Engineers.   We have a shortage of Engineers willing to earn $15 an hour after spending 4-6 years getting one of the hardest colleg

Where's the Manual?

Sometimes, you don't have one.    Academic Institutions, corporations, and government keep shoving the same message down our throats every day: work hard, get good grades, and get a nice, cushy job at that big company. Work there for 40 years, then retire when you are 65 with a 401K. But with the pandemic, politics, and mass-layoffs, the future doesn't appear so clear.    There are now more ways to make money, and more ways to reach others in the age of the internet than ever

Trump Wants to Start War, Ryzen Smartphone? : June 2nd Breifing

Politics Yep. Trump ordered police to use tear gas on peaceful (very harmful) to clear way for him for his photo-op (a Bishop said it was an abuse of the Bible), which resulted in violence instead of peace so tension is high.   The protests happened after a policeman suffocated a black George Floyd for no reason, and then lied about it in the report.   Tech AMD Ryzen on Smartphones??

It's already here. But where?

The internet of things, or "IoT" as it is called, has exploded onto the market With companies like Ring, Philips, Simplisafe, and Tive all developing their own technologies. All of these businesses develop products, connected to the internet 24/7, designed to do anything from keep your house safe to tracking supply chains. Suddenly this technology is available in every big-box retaill store acorss America, but it didn't start out that way.   Even as early as the 2010s, individuals have

Convenience

Something I've learned in the It world when it comes to hardware, is that people will pay a lot of money to be certain the part they are buying for their computer will work right out of the box. It is the reason companies like Serversupply, all HDD, or OWC exist. Even though they are all selling something you can buy on eBay for half the price, you can be given absolute certainty that when you buy from their website, the power supply, RAM, or motherboard is going to be directly compatible with t

Perspective-changing aspects of World War 2 that aren't taught in school

1. US companies heavily sponsored Hitler's rise to power and supplied the Nazis' war preparations to an extent that WW2 would likely not have been possible without the US' support of the Nazis. For one example, by 1942, 1/3rd of all the Nazis' vehicles were made by Ford, while half of the Nazis' vehicles throughout WW2 were made in GM factories (which GM lost control of in 1940), and Standard Oil (today's Exxon and Chevron) continued to supply 13,000 tons oil to the Nazis every month until

KDBfans x MITO Laser Cyan & Pink - Gateron Yellow Gets a Facelift

KBDfans teamed up with MITO and Gateron to create quite eccentric switches, known as the MITO Laser switches, with the design of the switches derived from MITO's Laser keycaps, which have the same purple, pink, and blue visual. Honestly, I had picked some of these up because of their color, otherwise, I would have bought regular Gateron Yellows and called it a day, as the MITO Laser switches are near-enough identical to the Gateron Yellows, but with a facelift, and different weight options.

The world has changed

Lessons from the coronavirus:   1. Don't have kids. Ever.   Having a spouse is fine, as long as they also work. But the cost of living is becoming so inflated, and children so expensive, people can't afford to have them. I see our economy becoming more like Japan in the coming decades where our birth rates crater because adults cannot afford to take care of dependents. If your parents hassle you over this because you did not give them "grandchildren" ask them who's life it is

Engineering and STEM

According to Forbes, the US produces roughly 237 thousand Engineers every year, with one qualified candidate being available per 1.9 job listings, whilke the national average is 1 per 3.6 job listings. But we aren't the top in producing Engineers, not by far. Especially on a per-capita bases:     The media likes to speculate why more individuals don't go for a STEM education of the career outlook is so great. Some say it's because we don't have enough people interested in ST

Money Printing

The US government and Federal Reserve have now collectively thrown $6 trillion dollars of stimulus at the coronavirus, according to the Washington Post:   https://www.washingtonpost.com/business/2020/04/15/coronavirus-economy-6-trillion/   The scary thing about the Fed printing money is while this sort of monetary stimulus will work today, there will be a day when it doesn't.   On that day, the US dollar will fail, and there is nothing your government can do to resc

I believe it is important that during the times of outlining and appreciating the efforts of high rankings we reflect on why we are folding. We give thanks to those that made it possible and treasure each and every single person that pushed and folded against this invisible enemy.   Coronavirus has claimed over 100,000 lives across the globe, infecting over two million people. This is why we fold, this is the reason we have been brought together. Only in times of such hardship do we se

What School Can't Teach You

School is a measurement of how long, and how hard you can work. School is a measurement of how well you can follow instuctions, and how obediant you can be. School is a measurement of how well you can jump through hoops, and how well you can deal with Buearucracy.   There's a difference between getting a good grade, and learning something. A BIG difference.   Doing well in an AutoCAD class means I get an A for making the design specified in the schematic in Solidworks. L
