Problems Magnetic I Am…?!


It sucks and I really hate to do this kind of entry…But really need to cool off a bit and really get it off my system…


I don’t know, maybe I am to strict on how I want an outcome of an action or maybe people expect my to be less expecting high outcomes so hard. Either way, I may never know the answer. Currently I am posting this after a at least 5 days of really uncomfortable situation and really needed to get on control. As the title of this posting implies, once again I am part of problem with a friend of mine…No is not about the previous post I made but also like in the other, I had no authorization from the person for posting this, but as I always said, my blog, my rules I will posting my view on the situation as always from a neutral point of view and will not be revealing the person’s name and gender, and will remain….”person” out of respect of the person.


Unperfected end of a not to perfect started day

Everything happened on this past Wednesday. We were supposed to finish an agreement about a shipment of a item she sell through my eBay account. By the way, I asked the person the previous day “Hey I still got time before my shift at work, we can go now so we can call it a day already about sending it. The person replied “I would prefer to do it tomorrow (Wednesday)”. After that I acknowledge it and I told the person, “be ready by 8AM because I needed to head eastern side to see my grandparents and my girlfriend and every second count if I don’t want to face any traffic.” And here is where I start to be neutral…I did fail meeting the person at 8AM, because unfortunately I am a human and no matter how much effort I input on changing my sleeping costume, that particular day I overslept and WAAYYY late considering it is a laboring day and at noon traffic is impossible considering the distance I was supposed to go. It was still ok at that time, the person insisted that I should go help with the shipment. I clearly told the person what the person have to expect on how “Come mierda” are at the US Postal Service and the person should just limit on asking between the Priority Mail or First Class Mail services and decline everything else. Then I just went away to try to at least catch up with my girlfriend, obviously calling my grandparents and apologizing that it is a 95% chance that I was not stopping by. An hour after getting at my girlfriend’s home, which I will note here, that I didn’t receive any update from the person until this point, I receive a message that like I told the person, the clerk at the USPS began ranting about the service and evidence if the item was really the person’s. After a few txt and failed calls, because I HAD NO GOOD COVERAGE since I am in the mountains of the eastern side of Puerto Rico. Then it all began…The person began complaining and was rather mad that the person was by two hours, the guy practically making fun of the person’s lack of experience on postal inquires and practically accusing me of being bad and suddenly the call got cut off. At this point, it is needless to say, that really brought a hard hour and a half with my girlfriend.


So…Analyzing this?!

Ok, really it hurt me being called bad…The person know that by the previous year I was trying to make the best of sharing the inn in we are currently staying. The were ups and downs between the specific situation from the two of us. Recently the person is having more downs than ups and I had made the best on helping the situation. Quite frankly sometimes I made trouble myself to make the most for the person AND not asking anything back. So all the suddenly I receive the “Jesus…you are bad” is like insult like “dick” or “fucker” after all that I done for the person.



I arrived around 11PM back at the inn and after three knocks on the person’s door, which I wanted to talk things in person like it is supposed to…Just to seeing that no one opening the door. So I took the step on giving my piece of mind by text. At the time really the person though that I was cooled off, but obviously I wasn’t, then all started to brought down the friendship we developed. The next day was the first of the 5 most uncomfortable days of the year 2010. Practically we being passing by and no look to the eyes, no “hello”. By day 3 I had enough. MADE NO MISTAKE, I didn’t say that I was taking back my piece of mind but really we are adults and this is for shitty kids having this kind of behavior and I took the step on texting the person back to no reply, but was able to meet the person after my shift and agreed we had to talk and get over it.



We didn’t sat and talk as I wanted. Seems the person feels offended and quite frankly I let the person be the one that call for the meeting, I just can’t stand be the one with the humility. The aftermath, at least writing this is that the person banned me from the person’s Facebook account and that was it until the writing of this at least. But meh…I’ll get over it…

Problem Magnetic I am?!….You be the judge.

Just Saying...

Finally returning for a new back-at-y'a!

Update from Grandma!
My uncle Carlos went off Florida for a visit this week. I had the privilege on getting of the Metropolitan Area and we head right to Manatí which Grandma is staying right now. It was nice how happy she was to see him again. Four years of absence seems it was somehow difficult to her, but was really amazing seeing her really upbeat as soon as we entered the door. Unfortunately for the unpleasant part has to be mentioned...I confirmed my worst case scenario about the therapy that she needed for recovering back her speech to a correct speaking. She lost the chance for therapy and the most of the bugging of all is that (In my theory) she was asked in the hospital if she wanted to have a therapy right away she was cleared out of the hospital and she declined right away just for getting out of the hospital. I mentioned earlier that she really needs to try harder to take her of herself, but seems she is not willing it to do it. Then we have to help her.

Welcome #NewTwitter
Since last week I had been able to use the new Twitter. Basically Twitter interface being re-done since scratch. I really love it. Unfortunately it was a month that it was announced and I was upset that was not available right away. But after a bar that show that I could use the preview I just click and closed the bar as I don't want to change back. It is funny to see that there is a uproar from Desktop users complaining that this is meant to make Apps like TweetDeck or Hootsuite, both desktop clients of Twitter to be useless as the new Twitter have a direct connection with 3rd parties services like Twtpic (photos) and Youtube (Videos) including a preview without clicking anything and high lining it with just putting the mouse cursor over a link. I think that the complain should have be made when Facebook did the same thing right after they began noticing the competition with Twitter (Nowadays they applied that saying: "Join 'em if can't beat 'em"). Personally I don't use desktop app, with the exception of Echofon for Mozilla Firefox and Chromed Bird for Google Chrome, I just see it pointless wasting computer resources with things I can do on desktop directly and via mobile with my trusty BlackBerry Torch.

"Security Threat"....PLZ?!
OK! For those following us at BlackBerryPR, you have noticed that we were posting news about some "security problems" with certain countries.
From BlackBerryPR:
BlackBerry UAE declares its National Security Threatt
United Arab Emirates just declared to the BlackBerry's as a potential threat to security in these countries.They state that these units operate outside the jurisdiction of national laws and are prone to misuse a clear reference to these units communicate with servers in Canada, where the parent company of BlackBerry, RIM.
"As a result of how it is handled and stored the information on the Blackberry, some applicationsallow people to misuse the service, causing serious social, legal and national security, "said Communications Regulatory Agency of the United Arab Emirates together.

This whole situation stems from the state-owned cell phone from the UAE, that is, AT&T , Claro, Sprint life, was caught encouraging BlackBerry users to install applications on BlackBerry's which they said allowed third parties access to these units. The UAE government has never fully clarified what happened in that case.

This is rather like the struggle that took the government of India with BlackBerry for a similar situation some years ago. The perse for some is something wild.

Saudi Arabia blocked the BlackBerry

Last week we said that the UAE had declared a BlackBerry as a threat to national security . Well, you know and a second Arab country in less than a week, said the BlackBerry's as a risk and intended to block their servicesfrom tomorrow Thursday, August 5, 2010
According to Saudi news agency, this block will start from tomorrow. Your government is afraid that the security and national information is affected given that the BlackBerry server are outside the country, and for them, this is a threat.

As they explain, "this will affect both businesses and individuals since the Manufacturing (RIM), they claim, has not complied with the regulatory requirements of its communications committee and does not comply with regulations and licensing conditions imposed on suppliers cellular service. "

In its submission, if they recognize that the information on the RIM servers and the Data are 100% secure and that there is nothing like a "Master Key" to access information, however, its decision to block the services seems to be final .

There are a number of elements related to architecture and related to RIM for years have established and will definitely make this a controversial decision:
  • RIM operates in over 175 COUNTRIES AND security architecture provides globally accepted by experts in security and governments around the world.
  • Governments around the world are working with a number of resources and methodologies to satisfy national security and enact laws needed to meet business security requirements.
  • Using encryption in wireless technologies is not unique to the BlackBerry platform. The encryption is mandatory for all e-mail services for businesses.
  • Using encryption in information systems is not unique in the wireless industry. It is used in practically everything related to the Internet and protect the confidentiality of individuals and businesses.
  • The architecture behind the BlackBerry was specifically designed to provide companies the ability to transmit information wirelessly with the assurance that no one, including RIM could access information.
  • BlackBerry technology is based on symmetric keys where the customer creates his own key and only the client has a copy of this to encrypt. RIM does not have a master key, nor is there any Backdoor to access it, nor any external agent.
  • Is designed so that you can not read or by RIM or any external agent the encrypted information under any circumstances. Just RIM will not pass any order of this kind, there is no way to do it.
  • The architecture is based on a model independent Global geography, the decision of where a client has located a Data Center or the service provider you have is irrelevant to the insurance bills in place and in no way affects the perspective of service provided. All the data remains encrypted through all points between the computer and the BlackBerry Enterprise Server .
RIM guarantees its customers that the integrity and security of their systems utilziando a BlackBerry Enterprise Server will not be compromised in any way.

You be the judge.
Right after that India began whipping too about this problems. Ain't no secret that all this countries are high on morals and do anything that help to people respect. Even going after (sometimes killing) to have a good behave from people. It is really sickening in this great 21st century, this world still have primitive minds. They can shove out in their asses their "securities" claim, they just want to monitor the BlackBerry Messenger and emails to see if there is no bad things happening with their people. Then all the suddenly, USA didn't complain but the want to use "The Patriot Act" to be used on BlackBerry services too. While this is really an unexpected move (Based in Barack Obama love to BlackBerry [No Bullshit, this thing was in the news when he arrived at The White House, quite frankly he begged not to be removed from his personal BlackBerry.]), it does really concern about real privacy. Hell, I know that all my reader have at least the temptation to get "frisky"on the phone (I admit it and GOD ALL MIGHTY I don't have regrets and need to apologize!). And that's the point, we pay our services, we follow the law, it just won't real justice that also the US goverment, although it is not secret that they already doing it, quite frankly it will give them more power to do it and keep the "I-DON'T-GIVE-A-F*CK!-I-AM-UNCLE-SAM-AND-IF-YOU-ARE-IN-MY-COUNTRY-FOLLOW-MY-LEAD-OR-KISS-MY-ASS-&-LEGALLY-YOU'LL-HAVE-TO-KISS-IT!" technique to avoid any legal backlash. We are just keep failing as more time pass by.

This past weekend I was having fun at the Technotron representing BlackBerry Puerto Rico & iPhone Fanatic on their booth. But this time I let the pics speak from themsleves...

A piece of mind on the most blow from the FBI on Puerto Rico

(CNN) -- In the biggest crackdown on police corruption in the FBI's 102-year history, authorities charged a total of 133 individuals in Puerto Rico Wednesday as the result of a probe into whether police provided protection for drug dealers.
All but four people, who were still being sought, were arrested Wednesday, authorities said. In all, 89 law enforcement officers and 44 other people were indicted as part of a two-year undercover investigation into 125 drug transactions.
The scope of Operation Guard Shack was also described as unprecedented because 750 FBI personnel were flown to the island to carry out the raids and make arrests, Attorney General Eric Holder said. In total, he said, more than 1,000 FBI personnel participated.
The investigation began when an undercover FBI agent posed as a dealer selling multiple kilograms of cocaine and "put the word out that he needed security during drug deals," the FBI said on its website.
"Many of those who responded were cops. They actively took part in the transactions by carrying weapons and patting down the drug buyers -- who were actually FBI informants."
The cops were paid between $500 and $4,500 for their efforts, the FBI said. "In all, more than $500,000 was paid in protection money."
Puerto Rico is a major shipping point for drugs between the East Coast and such South American countries as Colombia and Peru, said Rosa Emilia Rodriguez-Velez, the U.S. attorney for Puerto Rico.
She described the corruption as limited to a relatively small number of officers "who wanted to make a fast buck ... and needed the money."

A grand jury in Puerto Rico returned the indictments last month, and they were unsealed Wednesday, officials said.

Arrested were 60 members of the Puerto Rico Police Department, 16 members of various local police departments, 12 correctional officers, eight former law officers, three National Guard soldiers, two U.S. Army officers, one administrative examiner in child support matters, one Social Security Administration employee and 30 other civilians.

The operations began at 3 a.m. ET Wednesday, the FBI said, when 65 tactical teams fanned out across the island, the FBI said. FBI personnel on hand included crisis negotiators, evidence response team members, police dogs and their handlers and 80 medical personnel, including a trauma surgeon and a veterinarian. They traveled in armored Humvees, helicopters and some 250 rental cars, the FBI said.
Some Puerto Rican police officers assisted in the investigation into alleged law enforcement corruption, said Rodriguez-Velez.
"They refused to tolerate the corruption they witnessed," she said.
Puerto Rico Police Department Chief Figueroa Sancha knew of the investigation, the FBI said, quoting him as saying, "All the officers arrested during today's takedown did not honor or value the significance of working for the Puerto Rico Police Department."
Not all of the law enforcement officers arrested knew each other, according to Rodriguez-Velez, and they came from different parts of the island. A police lieutenant was involved in recruiting others to provide protection for the drug dealers, she said. "Badges were sold and honor was compromised for drug money," she added.
"Public corruption does not just strike at the heart of good government. It also jeopardizes the security of our communities and our nation," Shawn Henry, FBI executive assistant director, said in a statement.
If convicted, the defendants face sentences ranging from 10 years to life imprisonment, according to the Justice Department.

"This is a fight that cannot be won without the assistance of our community," said Rodriguez-Velez. "Today, I call upon the citizens of the community not to remain silent."
Really, what I got to say that it is a shame that we needed the FBI to clean the house because here, the "officials" doesn't move a finger to clean the crappy image that PRPD has nowadays. Please, family members of the guilts...Try not to defend them without not knowing the details, because is not necessary today's drug's absence, like a lawyer implied to say that the arrest are kinda unassertive with lacks of evidence, they say they have evidence, wait until you see them, then, defend them. But it is really hard to believe that just because it is a familiar they are automatically innocent. Unfortunately this is part of the economical crisis. When a government is unable to have a fair payment to the guys that are supposed to fight crimes (and not just writing parking tickets God Dammit!) they go out of the need to find alternative, but obviously drugs isn't a excuse. Where is the moral on arresting a drug dealer and calling him criminal when you defend your friends on the drug world, which also makes them criminal.

A Grateful Note
Before closing in and in a more positive note. Last week I had been blessed by overcoming my aspiration on attending to Ozzy Osbourne concert just to see my niece Yianelis after almost 10 months without seeing her. Sorry I got no pics because I wanted to enjoy every minute that I could with her and not messing with the camera. I gave her a Elmo's learning to go to the bathroom and I was just amazed, a almost 1 year and 10 months old baby girl already knows where to sit the doll, where it goes the glass included. Another amazing thing is that she hid in a corner of the house, because she just peed on her dipper and just for the sake on getting her mom's attention. When her mom saw her, she knew her mom knew and in a blink of an eye, she was looking the cleaning chups herself. I was so amaze and bless for seeing that. Intellectually she can kick my ass in fast learning comparing myself at her current age which I was more interested in having fun and toys.  She kinda didn't recognize me, hell last time I saw her was in the ends of November 2009 and she was barely learning to walk but she kinda give me trust real fast. I know babies would cry loud if they don't like somebody to be carrying them but she let me play with her, carrying her like she was flying, the classic baby-carrying game. Also while catching up what her mother was up to, the little angel fell asleep in my arms looking beautifully adorable and unfortunately have to leave but before that I got the privilege on laying her on her bed. It really made my weekend.

Monthly Geeky Vol 12: Android – An example of “Nobody saw it coming!”


I think that not many people foresaw what would become of mobile world. The reality is that now we have segmented the mobile industry between BlackBerry, Android, iPhone, Symbian and other. Today we are going to take a quick trip to the past and see how practically out of nowhere Android became what it is today.

About Android (From Wikipedia)
Android is a mobile operating system developed by Google and is based upon the Linux kernel and GNU software. It was initially developed by Android Inc. (a firm purchased by Google) and later positioned in the Open Handset Alliance. Android has a large community of developers writing application programs ("apps") that extend the functionality of the devices. There are currently over 70,000 apps available for Android with some estimates saying 100,000 have been submitted, which makes it the second most popular mobile development environment. Developers write managed code in the Java language, controlling the device via Google-developed Java libraries.
The Android operating system software stack consists of Java applications running on a Java based object oriented application framework on top of Java core libraries running on a Dalvik virtual machine featuring JIT compilation. Libraries written in C include the surface manager, OpenCore media framework, SQLite relational database management system, OpenGL ES 2.0 3D graphics API, WebKit layout engine, SGL graphics engine, SSL, and Bionic libc. The Android operating system consists of 12 million lines of code including 3 million lines of XML, 2.8 million lines of C, 2.1 million lines of Java, and 1.75 million lines of C++.

2003 – Android Inc.
What we know today as Android started as a brand new company by Andy Rubin, Chris White, Nick Sears and Rich Miner. Originally it was intended to be a mobile software development and technical solutions. They were, at the time, began developing a Linux-based operating system for cell phones and other mobile devices. Their main marketing targets were handset makers and carriers. An easy operating system that was flexible and upgradeable at the same time.

2005 – Google buy Android Inc.
In what was becoming typical of Google's acquisition strategy, a quota of buying a company per year, the search giant quietly bought (at the time) the wireless start-up in July 2005 for a sum that today it is still not clearly disclosed for general public but it is strongly rumored to be around $50 millions. At Google, the team led by Rubin developed a mobile device platform powered by the Linux kernel which they marketed to handset makers and carriers on the premise of providing a flexible, upgradeable system. It was reported that Google had already lined up a series of hardware component and software partners and signaled to carriers that it was open to various degrees of cooperation on their part. It was obvious at this time that Google was readying weapons to enter the warfare called “mobile industry”.
What we know today as Android, started out as a project using a modified kernel (Practically the vertebral column of an Operating System) of Linux. The design included programs that enable the OS to be upgradeable. Google had already at the time several hardware components and patent filed as testing currently went on.

2007 - The Open Handset Alliance was born with Android officially announced
During 2007, several top-manufacturing and mobile providers joined in a effort on creating open standards, as a business alliance between Google, HTC, Dell, Intel, Motorola, T-Mobile, Sprint, Qualcomm, Texas Instruments, Samsung, LG, Nvidia, and River Systems. Afterwards the alliance announced that they were using a new product called “Android” as an alternative to already established phones and programs as iPhone, BlackBerry, Symbian, etc.
For more information of the OHA, visit them here.
2008 – G1…Welcome Android
The HTC Dream, also know in T-Mobile USA as G1, was the first device with Android as operating system. Originally with Android 1.6 (discussed later), market a new beginning. The phone market as the first official product from the Open Hanset Alliance and released worldwide on October 2008. The price at the time started as $129.99 with a two-year contract with T-Mobile in the USA. The phone supported 3G and was built with a sensitive touchscreen with a physical, landscape QWERTY keyboard. Flash Memory of 256MB with 192MB RAM. Supporting aup to 16GB MicroSD card and CPU 528 MHz Qualcomm processor.

Android Versions (as of September 2010)
1.5 – Cupcake
  • Fast, smooth typing with the on-screen virtual keyboard
  • Easy access to favorite apps, contacts, bookmarks, and more via home screen widgets and live folders
  • Video recording, playback, and sharing
  • Full web experience with enhanced browser
  • Hands-free calls and listening with stereo bluetooth
  • Lots of UI refinements and performance improvements to the overall phone experience
  • New APIs and elements to enable even more innovative apps from developers
1.6 – Donut
Android 1.6 includes a redesigned search framework that provides a quick, effective, and consistent way for users to search across multiple sources—such as browser bookmarks & history, contacts, and the web—directly from the home screen.
The system constantly learns which search results are more relevant based on what is clicked. So popular contacts or apps that have previously been picked will bubble up to the top when a user types the first few letters of a relevant query.
The search framework also provides developers a way to easily expose relevant content from their applications in Quick Search Box.
Camera, Camcorder, and Gallery
An updated user interface provides an integrated camera, camcorder, and gallery experience. Users can quickly toggle between still and video capture modes. Additionally, the gallery enables users to select multiple photos for deletion.
Android 1.6 also provides a much faster camera experience. Compared to the previous release, launching the camera is now 39% faster, and there is a 28% improvement in the time from completing one shot to the next.
VPN, 802.1x
A new Virtual Private Network (VPN) control panel in Settings allows users to configure and connect to the following types of VPNs:
  • L2TP/IPSEC pre-shared key based VPN
  • L2TP/IPsec certificate based VPN
  • L2TP only VPN
  • PPTP only VPN
Battery usage indicator
A new battery usage screen lets users see which apps and services are consuming battery power. If the user determines that a particular service or application is using too much power, they can take action to save the battery by adjusting settings, stopping the application, or uninstalling the application.
2.1 – Eclair
Android 2.1 debuted on the new Nexus One handset and was reached on  other Android devices -- including the Motorola Droid, Motorola Cliq, and HTC Droid Eris. While Google calls the update a "minor platform release," Android 2.1 includes several interface changes that are sure to catch your eye.
Live Wallpapers
Those cool "live wallpapers" seen on the Nexus One are actually a standard feature of Android 2.1. The interactive backgrounds move in different ways: Some shift and swirl as you navigate around your home screens; others generate visualizations based upon music or finger-taps.
Additional Home Screens
Compared to the three home screens found by default in Android 2.0 (and the slightly updated Android 2.0.1), the 2.1 release of Android gives you five home screens to fill with shortcuts and widgets as you wish.
Updated Home Screen Navigation
Along with the added home screens comes a thumbnail-based navigation system that allows you to quickly jump to any screen. You can still swipe left or right normally to move through the various screens, but the thumbnail system gives you the option to also see small icons of all five screens and tap directly on any one to jump straight to it.
New App Launcher
Android 2.1 App Launcher
The standard Android app launcher gets a new look in the 2.1 release. Compared to the drawer-like look seen in previous versions -- where the app list would slide up from the bottom of the screen -- the 2.1 app launcher flies the icons in from the corners of the screen while fading in a dark background behind them. It then uses a rolling effect as you scroll down through the list.
Voice Typing For All Text Fields
Android 2.1 builds upon previous versions' voice-to-text capabilities by providing voice recognition for all text fields. As first demonstrated on the Nexus One, the expanded voice typing system allows you to do everything from sending texts to writing e-mails by simply speaking the words into your phone.
New Widgets
The newly black-colored system widgets introduced in Android 2.0.1 are present in the 2.1 release. Google has also added a widget that displays the latest news stories and weather on your home screen, then offers multiple tabs of news and weather information when opened in its full size.
3D Photo Gallery
The photo gallery in Android 2.1, developed with Cooliris, shows all of your images in a slick three-dimensional view. It also integrates two-way sync with online photo albums stored at Picasa.
Other Considerations
Neither Motorola nor HTC has announced an exact date for when specific Android handsets will receive the 2.1 upgrade. Motorola has, however, stated that all of its Android devices will be updated. HTC has mentioned the Droid Eris as an upgrade certainty and has suggested certain other models will also be included.
(During the Nexus One news event, Google Android guru Andy Rubin did say that some older Android phones may not be able to fully support the 2.1 experience, so it's quite possible that some of the early Android handsets may not end up getting the upgrade.)

2.2 – Frozen Yogurt (FroYo)
Android 2.2 comes packaged with a little piece of code called the just in time (JIT) compiler. A JIT compiler will increase the speed of Android and its applications by translating their code into a form that’s much faster for your phone to run.
It’s also believed that Google has performed some good ol’ fashion code improvement that would make Android quicker even without the JIT compiler.
Finally, it has been confirmed that Google has updated Android’s kernel to a newer version that consumes less RAM. More RAM for users means better application performance.
Google and Adobe have been working overtime to make sure that the mobile version of Flash 10.1 is ready for the limelight. Early previews of the technology on the HTC Nexus One, such as the video below, give a tantalizing glimpse of things to come.
Android 2.2 will likely allow users to finally store applications on a microSD card. This has been a popular feature request amongst Android users, particularly those with phones offering limited onboard storage.

Android Facts
  1. A simple version of Android has over 12 millions of programming codes, consisting of 3 million lines of XML, 2.8 million lines of C, 2.1 million lines of Java, and 1.75 million lines of C++.
  2. Each version are named as a pastries.
  3. Although Google had freed Android from the kernel tree…Android kernel is based on Linux.
  4. Android has done in a year and a half(2009-2010) what iPhone achieved since released in 2007 in terms of sales and popularity.
  5. Over 50,000 apps have been developed officially.
  6. Apple was and continues to be forced on re-adjusting it’s app developing policy as Android have a more developer-friendly policy with less restrictions which is very attractive and motivating for developers.
