citrix and mobile device platforms

A Citrix study of mobile device platforms in business again gives iOS a share much larger than its sales alone would indicate. According to a report on enterprise use from the fourth calendar quarter, iOS claims 62 percent usage compared to 35 percent for Android, leaving just three percent share for all other companies — corporate and enterprise giants BlackBerry and Microsoft included.

The stable tilt of Earth’s axis keeps us well out of all this trouble. Although some have blamed Westerosi seasons on a wobbly planetary axis, we reject this suggestion as nothing more than sinister Casterly Rock propaganda. As even Ser Gregor could tell you, a planetary moon [3,4] precludes axial excursions by stabilizing the tilt.

The tragedy of all this is that George McGovern, for all his mistakes and his imprecise talk about new politics and honesty in government, is one of the few men who’ve run for President of the United States in this century who really understands what a fantastic monument to all the best instincts of the human race this country might have been, if we could have kept it out of the hands of greedy little hustlers like Richard Nixon. McGovern made some stupid mistakes, but in context they seem almost frivolous compared to the things Richard Nixon does every day of his life, on purpose, as a matter of policy and a perfect expression of everything he stands for. Jesus! Where will it end? How low do you have to stoop in this country to be President?

This isn’t about mutual tolerance because there’s nothing mutual about it. If we agree to disagree on this issue, you walk away a full member of this society and I don’t. There is no “live and let live” on this issue because Dan Cathy is spending millions to very specifically NOT let me live. I’m not trying to do that to him.

I am shocked, SHOCKED, that the GOP is completely ignorant of basic biographical information about President Obama in addition to his politics, policies, and nationality. Is there anything they can get right about the President?

I want to say a little something that’s long overdue –
The disrespect to women has got to be through.
To all the mothers and the sisters and the wives and friends –
I want to offer my love and respect to the end.
