Enforced Ads Coming to Flash Video Players

Bob Abooey I'm all for this (397 comments)

Frankly the "cult of free" generation is coming to an end. We've had it easy for quite a while - free software(free like mp3's and Public radio - not like free beer) free movies - free everything. It's can't last forever, at some point in a capitalist society people need to make a profit.

In fact I've ditched the free paradigm and started buying stocks in the companies who actually charge for stuff - when the gravy train leaves the station I don't plan on being left behind.

I'm putting the band back together!!!

Bob Abooey Bob Abooey writes  |  more than 10 years ago Good news gentle readers,

After a long breather I've decided to get serious and put the band back together!! Once again, Bob Abooey and the Atomic Overdrive Blues Corp. will be hitting the road and takin it to the streets. We'll be playing small clubs for a while until we get our chops back then we'll do a stadium tour next summer.

Of course this means I will no longer be working as a FreeBSD developer.. which... truth be told... I'm pretty sick of doing anyways.

So check your local paper for when we'll be in your sorry arsed town and come out to experience the "Three chords and a cloud of dust" tour!

Your pal,
--BA

Back to Apple????

Bob Abooey Bob Abooey writes  |  more than 11 years ago Yes, Hello!

It's been quite a long time so I thought I would write up a quick update for everyone out there to get caught up.

As many of you know I used to work at Apple back in the early 90's in their mouse division and worked there until the late 90's when I left due to a difference of opinion with Steve Jobs. Well, as fate would have it I've been having some secret discussions with Steve again lately and I might be going back to Apple!!

I would love to get back in the saddle again and Steve seems willing to compromise so keep your fingers crossed and it just might happen!!

All the best,
--Bob
