George Burns on Acting

Acting is all about honesty. 
If you can fake that, you've got it made. 

-George Burns

Thanks to a business associate and friend from Maui I was able to see George Burns before he passed away. My friend and her husband came to Las Vegas, using my position as a write off, for her 30th birthday. She walked over to a roulette wheel and put $100 on number 30. It came up! Her husband dragged her from the table and they used the money for a first class vacation. Among the perks, they took my wife and I to see George Burns at the Rivierra. He did his song and dance without ever getting up from his stool. Music and comedy ranged from the 1890's to contemporary. "Oh God" what a performer!


How fast can we go?

Last Month China passed the US with the fastest computer in the world. They are only second to the US in number of the top 500 countries in Supercomputing power. In 2001 China had no supercomputers. This month Japan passed China with a super-computer two and a half times faster than China's.

Now Intel is saying there is a limit, as the age of speeds doubling in speed or more ever two years ends. The culprit is heat. Chips require cooling and the amount of cooling power to keep up with speeds is simply not available. So put the breaks on and slow down.

Plan for success

Dish Network looks to reinvent itself

Dish Network's Joe Clayton
Over the last several months, Dish has been on a spending spree, gobbling up billions of dollars worth of wireless spectrum and acquiring bankrupt video store chain Blockbuster in a deal valued at $320 million.
On the surface, the moves seem unrelated, but Dish says it has a grand plan that includes launching a subscription streaming service to compete with Netflix and getting into the wireless communications business.
"We are putting together the building blocks to be able to provide a whole suite of services to the customer," Dish President and Chief Executive Joe Clayton said. "Wireless voice, broadband, video, mobile ... we're going to have the capability to do all of the above."
"What Dish has basically done is bought itself a lot of options to keep itself more relevant," Wells Fargo securities analyst Marci Ryvicker said.
Primarily a satellite broadcaster with 14.2 million subscribers (which makes it the third-largest multichannel video program distributor behind Comcast and DirecTV), its co-founder and chairman, Charlie Ergen, has expressed doubts about the long-term prospects for that business.
"My kids think I'm crazy for being in the pay-TV business because they don't pay for TV," Ergen told analysts in November. Noting the competition from not only cable and DirecTV but Netflix and the Internet, Ergen said, "The world is changing" and Dish has to "figure out how we can do things differently and how we can compete."
Still, some Wall Street analysts worry that the company may be biting off more than it can chew with its recent spending spree.
"It sounds ambitious, innovative and expensive," said Sanford Bernstein analyst Craig Moffett, who last month issued a report on Dish calling the stock a "leap of faith."
