UPDATE (06-10-09) - Apparently CNN received my message and changed their website so that now CNN Live works great with the Flash Player on Ubuntu GNU/Linux 9.04! You can get to CNN Live by clicking the "Live Video" link at: http://www.cnn.com/video

Great job CNN!! Way to support diversity in operating systems. Enjoy your new GNU/Linux viewers.





This is what I see when using an Open Source Operating System to view (LIVE) PUBLIC information that is disseminated from our American President!!

Is this America or what? Why should I BE REQUIRED to use a PROPRIETARY OPERATING SYSTEM to see what our Government (and current PRESIDENT) is trying to deliver via press conference to me, an American? If this is required, where is the Microsoft/Apple federal tax, that will at least give back to America for the restrictions it provides? How is this Freedom in the United States of America??

I was so ticked off by this that I sent an email to the Antitrust investigation department of our Federal go…

Open letter to wireless carriers: Give us Android phones!! Let FREEDOM ring!!

OPEN LETTER TO WIRELESS CARRIERS (Verizon, ATT, Sprint, et. al.):

Please give us Android phones ASAP!!

HTC and T-Mobile made mobile phone history yesterday(09-23-08) by providing us all with the Open Source Android Operating System on the elegant HTC G1 handset.

DON'T GET LEFT BEHIND!!

It would be too bad for you if all of us started switching over to T-Mobile just to get the Android phone, but this move may become a reality if you don't catch on quickly to the Android phenomena, and start providing this awesome phone very soon.

So that's it, GIVE US ANDROID AND Let FREEDOM ring!!

Good day.
