Egypt: Day of Anger Suggests a New Protest Scene Driven by Youth, Free of Ideology

…the only slogans heard demanded change, freedom, social justice and a stop to corruption in Egypt

via Egypt: Day of Anger Suggests a New Protest Scene Driven by Youth, Free of Ideology – Carnegie Endowment for International Peace.

Excellent analysis. As I wait for the announcement from Egypt’s Speaker of the Parliament via Al Jazeera’s live streaming video on my iPad, my thoughts return to the reasons why this protest has taken hold and may likely succeed in overthrowing the Mubarak government:

Egyptians are rediscovering that  politics, before anything else, is concerned with citizens’ living conditions within the borders of the relevant nation-state.

As our House of Representatives votes to screw veterans, redefine the term “rape”, and further degrade the middle class, they would do well to pay attention to what is happening in Egypt.

This is getting a bit more subjective, but I much prefer the Zune Marketplace. The interface is colorful, has more flair, and some cool features like ‘Mixview’ that let you quickly see related albums, songs, or other users related to what you’re listening to. Clicking on one of those will center on that item, and another set of “neighbors” will come into view, allowing you to navigate around exploring by similar artists, songs, or users. Speaking of users, the Zune “Social” is also great fun, letting you find others with shared tastes and becoming friends with them. You then can listen to a playlist created based on an amalgamation of what all your friends are listening to, which is also enjoyable. Those concerned with privacy will be relieved to know you can prevent the public from seeing your personal listening habits if you so choose.

If you’re still on the fence: grab your favorite earphones, head down to a Best Buy and ask to plug them into a Zune then an iPod and see which one sounds better to you, and which interface makes you smile more. Then you’ll know which is right for you.

Apple now has Rhapsody as an app, which is a great start, but it is currently hampered by the inability to store locally on your iPod, and has a dismal 64kbps bit rate. If this changes, then it will somewhat negate this advantage for the Zune, but the 10 songs per month will still be a big plus in Zune Pass’ favor.

Do you have a spam issue on this site; I also am a blogger, and I was wanting to know your situation; many of us have created some nice procedures and we are looking to exchange strategies with others, please shoot me an e-mail if interested.

The Zune concentrates on being a Portable Media Player. Not a web browser. Not a game machine. Maybe in the future it’ll do even better in those areas, but for now it’s a fantastic way to organize and listen to your music and videos, and is without peer in that regard. The iPod’s strengths are its web browsing and apps. If those sound more compelling, perhaps it is your best choice.

whoah this blog is excellent i love studying your articles. Keep up the good paintings! You recognize, lots of people are hunting around for this information, you can help them greatly.

Yet again, the linebackers struggled in coverage and gave up too much yardage to opposing tight ends. You can even fly the iconic 1903 Wright Brothers airplane if you like. I too went through that low of where you don’t see the light even if someone is shining a flashlight in your face.

The new Zune browser is surprisingly good, but not as good as the iPod’s. It works well, but isn’t as fast as Safari, and has a clunkier interface. If you occasionally plan on using the web browser that’s not an issue, but if you’re planning to browse the web alot from your PMP then the iPod’s larger screen and better browser may be important.
