Google TV


It's about time TV became easier to use. Its amazing that one of the most popular modern technologies with the highest adoption rate lacks an intuitive user interface and experience.

Celebrity Apprentice Business Competition in Class

Today in class we had a suprise competion. We were broken into groups of 5 based on peronality types, I was a connector, and given $20 a posterboard, markers, and perferated tickets. The goal was to raise as much money as possible in 60 minutes. The connecters merged with the Creaters and decided to do a raffle for $20 and sell tickets for $1. Our contingency was to hedge our bet on scratch tickets, but fortunately it didn’t come to that. In 60 minutes we sold 90 tickets! We dominated the competition producing over a 5 times ROI grossing $130.
It was a true hustle, but we came out victorious.

This is a picture of me presenting the raffle winner with his prize!
