Steve Jobs | iPad | Female-centric Technology

FutureTracker| TIME magazine rarely puts the same cover story on its four global editions. The fact that Appel’s Steve Jobs is front and center on TIME all around the world shows the power and influence of Apple.

Apple products are female-centric friendly, a fact highlighted by Stephen Fry, writing The iPad Launch: Can Steve Jobs Do It Again?

The article is unusually ‘soft’ and personal for a TIME cover story but as Fry writes with an affection for iPad that only a long-time Mac user would understand. He also calls out the longstanding right brain, left brain disagreement between Mac and PC users.

Head of design for iPad, Jonathan Ive says “For us, it is all about refining and refining until it seems like there’s nothing between the user and the content they are interacting with.”

In a real sense, Macs become extensions of the users personality. In an ET sort of way, users embue their Macs with their own creative personality. Among PC and techno geeks, goosed-up tools win.  The left-brain PC techno geeks make this a battle of brain-wiring dominance.

It amuses me to think that my partner for 10 years was a PC guy.

Moscow Authorities Fear Return of 'Black Widows'

Russian investigators believe one of the two women suicide bombers responsible for this week’s deadly attacks in the Moscow subway was a 17-year-old girl, the widow of an insurgent leader from the Caucasus Mountains in southern Russia. via NY Times

Top Islamist militant Umalat Magomedov was shot dead during a security operation in December 2009. His wife pictured her as Dzhennet Abdurakhmanova has a strong resemblance to one of the women terrorists on subway-attack video footage and photos. 

Young Muslim women mostly from strife-torn Chechnya, they are called Black Widows, having lost husbands and relatives in two wars Russia fought against Islamist rebels since 1994 in and around Chechnya.

In recent years, the black-clad women have blown up two airliners, detonated at a rock concert and attacked the Moscow metro twice. They were among the band of Chechen terrorists who died along with at least 130 hostages in a Moscow theater in 2002. via USA Today

Erykah Badu's 'Window Seat' Video Confronts The International Morality Police

via thehotness.comBlack women have understandably been quick to claim Erykah Badu’s new ‘Window Seat’ video as their own. One of the great tragedies of the women’s movement in America — unlike the international women’s scene — is that feminism divides on racial lines.

We’ll step out here, claiming Badu’s video for all women. Her personal message at the end of her song is about what’s happening in America, not what’s happening to Black women in particular.

I reiterate that we welcome the liberating aspect of the video for black women.

Erykah Badu’s ‘Window Seat’ video

I wish Badu’s lyrics had been as introspective as her comments at the end of the ‘Window Seat’ video. Then she would have created an rallying cry for 21st century women’s rights, under assault with the whip and words by fundamentalism and the global morality police.

As Erykah Badu reminds us, the morality police live in America’s back yard, too.

Fashion Media Nudity vs Social Conservative Values

Updated on Tue, April 6, 2010 by Registered CommenterAnne

When New York Magazine loaded up the photos for this week’s fashion ‘Military at Ease’ photo story, they didn’t lead with ruffles, choosing a bare bottom instead. The mini feature says that the military trend has ‘staying power’ and we agree.

In commenting on the above photo Village Voice blogger Jen Doll gets in a bare-bottom germ tizzy, which leaves me nothing to say except that it’s a new day at the Village Voice. Janis Joplin and Jimi Hendrix would roll over in their graves, reading the germ talk.

Women As ‘The Thinker’

We agree that the model looks like Rodin’s The Thinker. But rather than worrying about germs, we think she’s pondering the need for women to run the world — or at least have a major say in it — and whether cupcakes and macaroons can bring peace to the Middle East.

Nudity IS everywhere in fashion editorial this spring and not at all to our surprise. Knee-jerk reactions to nudity bring nothing but confusion to the subject because more than one trend is happening at the same time. Sorry, but the subject of nudity expressed in fashion is a far more nuanced topic than bad boy photographer Terry Richardson would have us believe.

Women As Slut Girls or Modern Muses

In our minds, the ‘slut girls’ have achieved nothing but heart ache and disrespect. Taking on conservatives, men in general, and the porn industry, young women saying they would own the name ‘slut’ as Blacks own the name ‘nigger’ has not born positive fruit, from our perspective. (See Women As Muses: What Is Our Place in the Modern World? Or Are We Just ‘Slut Girls’ Today?)

But nudity expressed by embracing the body is another matter. When confronting the conservative, fundamentalist, patriarchal forces in Islam, Catholicism, Jewish and Southern Baptist doctrines, voices pounding away in our psyches that female sexuality is the work of the Devil and a persistent evil temptation to men — enlightened women and men are pushing back by embracing the human body.

Personal Power | Learning Life from Birds & One 747 Turnaround

Flickr photographer jack weisberg
An updated essay from Anne’s original journal

My Aunt Naomi says that reading my letters is an adventure in itself. She never knows where she’s going, when she opens the envelope. And often … neither do I when I begin writing.  In truth, I’ve left parts of myself and unfinished business all over the world. Fragments of me are also spread across the website, difficult to track at times because I tell too many stories at the same time.

It seems that now is the time to look back into my writing … considering the years after I returned to New York from Ohio, where I stayed after leaving Victoria’s Secret to continue my eight-year relationship.

I originally wrote “Life Is For The Birds” after Sept. 11 and more importantly at a time when I launched this ‘Life Journey’ of mine for real. I’ll do my best not to be too confusing as my tale unravels. More than one editor considers my writing style a nightmare.

“Life Is For The Birds”, written Jan. 15, 2002

Forgive the superlatives, but I shop at the most picturesque food market on the planet: Whole Foods in Edgewater.

Flickr photographer Lesliepear

Last week, I experienced a life lesson in their parking lot, trying to avoid a hundred sea gulls prancing around like dancers, double-daring me to harm just one feather. I like to drive fast, but I inched along in the Whole Foods parking lot, cajoling these sea birds to give me an opening. “Come on birds,” I pleaded in frustration. “Give me a break.”

I drove my five-speed sports coupe masterfully and prided myself on being able to answer almost any question in cyberspace in under 60 seconds. I’ve travelled around the world over 100 times from New York to Europe and then Asia and home. Round and round the world I went for 10 years.

Nevertheless, these birds stopped me dead in my tracks.

In India Famous Hindu Holy Man Paramhamsa Nithyananda Has Own Sexy Scandal

In India Paramhamsa Nithyananda, the popular Indian Hindu holy man with a reported 2 million followers, over 11 ashrams in India and 26 in different countries around the world has decided to live a life of spiritual seclusion after being filmed in a sex tape.

Today the holy man is officially missing from law authorities, unable to sort out his holy man status from a growing number of legal cases against him.

Nithyananda’s problems all began with a mildly compromising sex video, shown on TV all over India in early March 2010.

The Nithyananda Mission ashram released a statement calling the video “a mix of conspiracy, graphics and rumours”, but followers attacked the building. The revered spiritual leader says he was the most watched guru on YouTube.

A former disciple Nitya Dharmanada alias Karuppa Lenin, has claimed he filmed Nithyananda’s sexcapades ‘to unmask the man masquerading as a spiritual leader’. The videos showed Nithyananda in compromising positions with actress Ranjitha, who served as Nithyananda’s personal attendant during her frequent visits to his ashram.

Last week in Bangalore the Karnataka high court, on Tuesday, ordered the state police to produce all documents relating to the cases, after Nithyananda petitioned the court to stop the proceedings against him.

The 33-year-old godman said he was ”in a state of samadhi (trance)” when the video, showing him in a compromising position with an actress, was taken.

Smart Bird Babies 'Know' Food Supply Before Hatching

RedTracker| Scientists studying bird behavior have concluded that canary mothers send messages via androgen deposits into the eggs, giving baby canaries a heads up on what to expect foodwise once they hatch. In response, the nestlings adjust their begging for food behaviour.

Dr Rebecca Kilner, from the Cambridge University research team, told Wired that while it is not known how the chicks “read” these androgen messages, “We do know that chicks with higher androgen levels beg more intensely.”
