Not missing in action

This blogger has been rather silent this past week. I am in Caracas attending some family and business matters that are actually taking more time than I thought. I am also having many interesting meetings that I hope will give enough material for a post this week end. That sense of playing journalist is increased because I have changed my cel phone for one that has a camera. Hopefully I will be able to document some of the constant governmental misdeeds that I keep writing about. I am sure that chavismo cannot be happy with the proliferation of relatively cheap visual devices that can only document their sheer incompetence when ruling the country.

Many news, but nothing that I have not reported before almost to the dot. That is, the government keeps passing more and more restrictive laws, and finding ways to loot the country more and more. I could use the same posts just changing a few key words and recycle. In particular the disgusting spectacle at the national assembly yesterday where all rules and proceedings were ignored so that chair, Maduro, could pass a law he promised to Chavez a couple of days ago. The servility of the parliament, and the lackadaisical temper of its leadership are now of the same caliber of the Cuban one.

More as soon as I can.

    Microsoft-Google battle heats up

    Microsoft's chief executive vowed to "kill Google" in an expletive-laden tirade against the firm, according to US court documents filed by Google.

    The claim was made in a sworn statement by Mark Lucovsky, a former Microsoft employee who quit for Google in 2004.

    Microsoft chief Steve Ballmer has denied the claims, saying they are a "gross exaggeration of what actually took place".

    The statement is the latest salvo in a bitter legal battle between the firms.

    In his sworn statement, Mr Lucovsky - a key Windows architect - alleged that Mr Ballmer hurled a chair across the room when he informed him he was moving to Google, before launching into an abusive tirade against Google's chief executive Eric Schmidt.

    However, Mr Ballmer has dismissed the claims.

    "Mark's decision to leave was disappointing and I urged him strongly to change his mind. But his characterisation of that meeting is not accurate," he said in a statement.

    Bitter row
    The row between the two firms was triggered when one of Microsoft's vice presidents, Dr Kai-Fu Lee, was hired by Google to set up a research centre in China.

    Microsoft claimed the move was a violation of a one-year non-compete clause in his contract and began legal action against the search engine giant.

    However, Google has retaliated by claiming that Microsoft's action is a form of intimidation designed to eliminate the threat of a fast-growing rival.

    The group has been moving further into the software arena - most recently with the launch of Talk, a service which lets e-mail account holders talk to each other via a PC, microphone and speakers.

    The system is a direct threat to online voice and instant messaging service providers such as Skype, Microsoft and Yahoo.

    Microsoft won the first round of the increasingly bitter battle between the two firms in July, when a King County Superior Court judge issued a temporary order barring Mr Lee from carrying out the duties he had been hired to do for Google.

    The two sides will face each other in court again on Tuesday when Microsoft will ask a court to extend that order until the matter comes to trial in January.

    Help me Dude, I'm lost.

    I was searching for Elvis and somehow ended up in your blog, but you know I'm sure I saw Elvis in the supermarket yesterday.

    No honest really, he was right there in front of me, next to the steaks singing "Love me Tender".

    He said to me (his lip was only slightly curled) "Boy, you need to get yourself a shiny, new plasmatv to go with that blue suede sofa of yours.

    But Elvis said I, In the Ghetto nobody has a plasma tv .

    Dude I'm All Shook Up said Elvis. I think I'll have me another cheeseburger then I'm gonna go home and ask Michael Jackson to come round and watch that waaaay cool surfing scene in Apocalypse Now on my new plasma tv .

    And then he just walked out of the supermarket singing. . .

    "You give me love and consolation,
    You give me strength to carry on "

    Strange day or what? :-)

Comments policy:

1) Comments are moderated after the third day of publication. It may take up to a day or two for your note to appear then.

2) Your post will appear if you follow the following rules. I will be ruthless in erasing any comment that do not follow these rules, as well as those who replied to that off rule comment.

3)COMMENT RULES:
Do not be repetitive.
Do not bring grudges and fights from other blogs here (this is the strictest rule).
This is an anti Chavez blog, with more than 95% anti Chavez readers that have made up their minds long ago. Thus trying to prove us wrong is considered a troll. Still, you are welcome as a chavista to post,> in particular if you want to explain us coherently as to why chavismo does this or that. We are still waiting for that to happen once.
Insults and put downs are frowned upon and I will be sole judge on whether to publish them.
