Physical Vs Digital

Here we are in 2012, Today we got all this new advance technology that it is now going to start replacing paper. some people don’t like that everything is going digital and some of them would like to go digital because electronics saves the environment which I understand it does,  but the fact is that you got everything that’s going to be digital and nothing is going to change that, Physical copies are still going to be around for a couple of years to come but later I know that physicals copies like Books, DVD’s Music and other media that I haven’t listed  are soon going to be or are already in digital format or already on-Demand format (or streaming format on if that what you call it now and days), Things are changing rapidly and I know that because I use it all the time now since it’s something that I doing right now for my own convenience heck I’m listening to Dream Theater on Grooveshark that I can listen to it streaming on the website, but does that mean I’m pirating?  No! it simply means I listen to it without purchasing it But does that mean that I’m not supporting the artist? Of course not! I am supporting the artist!  What I like about streaming a song is that I like to listen to the whole album before purchasing it besides I don’t want to purchase an album that’s not good from them even dough the artist worked hard on making this piece of work they done.  Another way you can support your artist is go to their shows on where their going to be performing at in your city near you or a place they’re going to playing live.  Heck I’ve been to now about five rock concerts in the past, Last one I been to was last week on Friday I was seeing Styx live in Miami and before that I went to see Dream Theater last year in Atlanta and both of them are amazing to see live plus they make allot of money while touring around the world not just for Digital and Physical purchase.

some how this is what leaves physical formats a disadvantage most of the time you can’t preview a Music, Movies and Books. (Expect for video games I know demo games gives you plenty of time to give you the idea how the game is going to be played on the consoles).  

I know another disadvantage that doesn’t have on a physical copy for instinct a book! If you want to read something at night but don’t want to turn the lamp on  you’ll have to get a portable night light to read which is something that I have at home that I used allot when reading physical copy.  But with the tablet it always light up with any tablet that you use, Apple, Android, Amazon, B&N Nook or what you are using,  A tablet I can bring a good example is the Amazon Kindle,  it’s only purpose it does is e-books since it’s very popular in the  market now for readers that travel everywhere I find that it helps allot,  If you’re the kind that like fill 1,500 Thur 4,100 titles that’s up to you.  Barnes and Nobles is still going to be around for a long time the way I see it.

Like I said about Music Industry before its having a hard time right now,  but I can still music having a future if music can be everywhere, I can imagine music stores being a big demand for music down loaders and anyone that was out of there houses and hang out in the malls or to the park or what ever it is you want to go,  unfortunately allot of people see that as a dying industry, I remember a time when I was little…I think it was about 10 or 13 years ago, I remember going to a mall allot and remember seeing people coming in and out of stores buying CD’s allot and one of the stores I remember that sell music at the time was Sam’s Goody’s back when I was living in Florida, that was very big at the time in the 90s,  which I remember it was a big store back then, I remember another store call sun coast I remember it so well when it was in every mall it was cool that had allot of videos and DVD’s in store Self’s of course Media-Play had something like that was as well. 🙂  and last time I heard Fye’s bought them.  Today’s Media store aren’t as good as it was back then, due to download and privacy.  (So If you plan to a musician…well Good Luck on your success because it’s not easy as it was before).

Today, We see a change in the times,  You know it’s a different world on what we see today then back then.  It’s like history the Roman Empire rose when it was biggest empire and then fell it’s knees, that’s how I see what the industry is an all out war, The online world vs the Nationwide Media store.  Way the world is there’s a balance to everything, one wants to physical and the other wants digital and it’s hard to who’s going to overcome. other way I see is that people only want one thing and one thing alone, Truth is you can’t make people switch to digital, most aren’t going to switch over night that not going to happen like that.  When you  hear a new device…for instinct the new Ipad 3 or HD what ever you want to call it, Is a very expensive that I don’t see many that is going to pay for it in the first day of launch, not many people are going to for a tablet in the first days of launch,  then after launch then tech critics are going to see problems to the devices pointing that rear view sucks or maybe the frame rate is slow and whatsoever.  The Many of the consumers are apples fans that are willing to pay high dollar for the price.  it’s only low percent of the apple user that are going to purchasing a Ipad 3 no dough,  Not that I’m saying it’s wrong to have a device like Ipad 3, I think there a great tablet to have,  some how I rather wait till the price goes down or apple announces the next Ipad that has less problems, I do know very well when purchasing a electronic that has a e-book feature and want to get it but can’t tell if that suit you…well it’s about research one most of the time it has to be you that needs to know if your going to getting it to make life as easy as possible to rid of the clutter of having so many books in your self…I can understand why.  

Weekend Trip: Miami March 8th-12th.

Thursday, I just arrived here since Thursday and I came here tried and all I wanted to do is sleep.  So I did.  I don’t remember much what I did from the rest of the afternoon but I do know that was with my dad hang and going out place to place.

Friday evening I went to a concert to see the band Styx,  its was a great show, they were outstanding and still today, to bad they don’t have all the original members but it was still great no dough.

Saturday, I went to the beach Saturday afternoon for about two hours had a nice time there also I went for a walk down in the beach get some sun on me.

Sunday,  I was trying to get out of Florida so I can get ready for a job training that morning around 10am. I was in the airport early but I found out what screw me up the most is Daylight Savings,  I hate when switches time around, I don’t like it at all!  The first flight of the morning was a pretty good flight and it had open seats,  but that day I was going through hell that morning, I was getting help from my mom about when will they’ll be good flights the reason I was asking her because she works for Delta,  I needed to know what I can get a good flight,  she told that Miami is terrible and there was no way I was going to make it,  then I remember while talking to her, she went on mentioning that West Palm Beach might be good,  So I decided to take a chance to see if West Palm Beach would be better,  So I called my dad and told him that I’m going to see if West Palm Beach had any better flights,  So I took a chance.  After an hour later riding to Miami to West Palm Beach it was full, the security in that airport was just as terrible as Miami and I waited about 2 hours and luck they kept bumping me and I wasn’t in the clear list,  I’m sitting thinking this whole thing is ridiculous and I’m not waiting any longer!  I forgot to mention that it was busy that weekend due to spring break for all the college kids out having a break.  I got out of the terminal and decided afterwords to see my cousin over and plus his new house has over there.  After the whole madness was over at the terminal,  My dad and I went to head to the theater to John Carter which I like it allot,  but as a Disney Movie its not a movie that attend to be for Kids its over for older teens and adults.  That was my day.

 Monday, I was in the Airport all morning till 3am! and finally I got a 9am flight and here I was finally glad that left because it is the last time I’ll be visiting Florida for a while.  Now I’m back home and I’m going to be starting working tomorrow morning around 10:30am,  I”m going to be need me some rest.  

Wolfram Alpha Computation Knowledge

This is not your regular search engine,  this is a computation engine that I have used in the past. Today I went on to this website and started using it for studying that I needed to keep up with school I got going on,  I love the website and I’m using the 14 day trail pro version, which I like but I know it still needs some work to be added like historic events from world history but over all it’s a great site to search for knowledge and facts and very similar to Wikipedia, the thing that separates a search engine like Google and Yahoo and a free Encyclopedia that its neither,  Its a knowledge computation engine to search up facts quickly than a search engine that you normally do.  Example let’s say if you’re trying to look for a math question all you have to do is type answer down to the search bar and it’ll compute the answers within seconds you get it in no time!  it’s pretty quick and one of the Internets hidden gems that you may not know about. I discovered it few years ago while the company was born 2009 when it was announced a press conference showing presentation on how the knowledgeable engine works.  So for anyone that’s need help on Science, Social Studies or Math it’s for anyone that’s in a Middle School, High School or at a College Level.  (it can also be use in a Elementary level).
