Summary

If you desire using and investing in smart media that integrates sports better than any available offering, it would have to be fuboTV, NYSE: FUBO.

As you cannot discuss streaming services without the issue of quality access to the Internet, to power fuboTV’s streaming capabilities, I would only recommend TimeWarner infrastructure or Verizon FIOS.

Here’s why.

My Rant on NBC Sports

A preferred experience that is NBC Sports is full of nauseating missed opportunities. After frustratingly searching online for an extended period after not finding skiing on the NBC Sports platform, I realized that NBC Sports will be integrated with Peacock. And?

Instead of further developing their offerings, NBC Sports merely stalled out, backtracked, then slid-off onto another, less promising platform. As a hopeful, NBC Sports fan, I am still in disbelief. …

I expected both marques to be processed through bankruptcy years ago as both entities have been horribly managed for over a decade.

I remember writing a letter to the J.Crew CEO over five years ago probably about the same time I made my last major Brooks Bros. purchase.

J.Crew developed an increasingly toxic internal culture, this paired with Gap quality and presentation did not bode well with their established audience.

Brooks Bros.’ lack of consistency in fit, service, and self-determined dilution of identity across countless collection segments was of equal disgust to J.Crew’s shortcomings.

Traditional J.Crew menswear can be had by the original designer elsewhere with a higher quality and more client-focused experience. J.Crew could be saved by resorting to old standards with new optimism for the future. …

FERRARI 250 GTO — AS IT SHOULD BE DRIVEN BY ROBBERT ALBLAS (2019)

This is what Ford v Ferrari (2019) failed to deliver.

And I will say it again, this is what Ford v Ferrari (2019) failed to deliver apart from adding to Christian Bale’s already stellar acting reel and shining another light onto Caitriona Balfe’s talents.

Instead, the audience was presented disjointed driving scenes that were not necessarily immersive nor memorable apart from having the effort to recall a few moments worthy of discussion; in short, they were not my favorite scenes of the film — which was a welcomed surprise as a skeptical audience member. …

Now Twitter is an abstract digital projection of technocratic tyranny. (Image Source)

You would create an account and almost overnight, you would have a new realm of friendships and social circles to explore digitally. It was engaging and it was fascinating.

Preface and disclaimer

This is a personal opinion piece. This is a reflection of knowledge that I have passively and actively attained over recent years of experience and research along with very recent personal experiences.

I am not a human rights nor a licensed legal advisor. This piece is not one that constitutes advice, it is merely entertainment, at-best.

As an early adopter, I have been assaulted by Artificial Intelligence (AI) protocols more times than I can count over the previous 15 years.

I would rank the Public Education system that I have experienced across-three states as a close-second to shutting down creative and personal freedoms (I could write a saga on first-hand Public Education failures), but AI has to take the cake. …

“Right-to-Repair” is more important than the rumored features on your next device.

If you are claiming that you or your company is a “disruptor”, an “early-adopter”, or “innovating”…

Then “Right-to-Repair” needs to be top-of-mind when resolving personal and business hardware technology requirements.

“The right to repair electronics refers to government legislation that is intended to allow consumers the ability to repair and modify their own consumer electronic devices, where otherwise the manufacturer of such devices require the consumer to use only their offered services (Wikipedia).”

For many years, I have known Louis Rossmann to be one of the biggest public advocates of Right-to-Repair. So I am all too happy to include his recent speech from YouTube. …

Fraiser, The Doctor is Out, Season 11, Ep. 3, 2003 (IMDb).

Well, this is awkward. The mid-life crisis automobile has gone missing.

The mid-life crisis machines of yesterday seemingly fit stylishly neat in any parking situation.

Parked here, and parked there from distressed urban centers to leaf-blown lawns of the suburbs, mid-life crisises on wheels were seemingly parked everywhere like your favorite video rental stores of the 1990’s.

These sharp jawed, curvaceous machines had something to say for themselves and the bravado of the men piloting them. They gratuitously loud-mouthed the latest pop singles and proudly became open-top runways for scandalously dressed women with voluminous, wind friendly hair. …

When you realize your Ferrari is a Virgin too.

If you are aware that your partner’s birthday would fall somewhere between August 23rd and September 22nd, this would signal that your partner is predominantly a Virgo by virtue of astrology. And of course, the term Virgo, translates to Virgin or Maiden.

Your Maranellesi machine shares a distinct September birthday with your significant other by way of its manufacturer. This may explain those interesting moments that spark between your Virgo partner and your Italian love affair on wheels. …
