Apple's Customers Left Out In The Rain: "What Hurricane?"

With gale force winds and record breaking storm surges, the second largest hurricane is making her presence known not only across the country, but around the world. Millions of eyes are watching the frightening force of nature as it sweeps over the east coast bringing extreme downpours and flooding to residents in the storm's path. News and weather agencies are tracking the storm and serving updates keeping everyone informed and safe...except for Apple.

According to Siri, no one needs to be worried about Hurricane Sandy at all--not that such a storm exists in the first place. As hard as it is to miss all the streaming reports of flooding, severe storm warnings, public school closings, calls for evacuation, power outages, life-threatening conditions and the twitter talk that makes this a trending topic massive enough to eclipse even the debates, it looks like Apple has somehow managed to do just that. Maybe, it's just a case of Sandy being too mainstream for the hipster-centric corporation, or more likely, the "intelligent" personal assistant is a little slow on the uptake.

Apple Maps is equally clueless pointing to a church in West Virginia when queried about Hurricane Sandy.

Google, however, is leading the charge in gathering and displaying helpful information about the Sandy Ravage. The Apple crushing search giant has created an interactive "crisis map" to display the predicted path of the storm, wind speed and rain and life saving information such as the location of shelters and live webcam feeds. Google is working with the Red Cross,, National Weather Service and others in a feat of altruism that will help prevent loss of lives in one of the worlds fiercest hurricanes.

Apple had this excuse for the appalling performance:

"Maps is a cloud-based solution and the more people use it, the better it will get. We appreciate all of the customer feedback and are working hard to make the customer experience even better."

Clearly, Google is the real cloud-based solution for updates on this cloud-based topic. Only thing cloud-based at Apple right now is the clouded vision of Apple's (capsized) flagship software.

It is not our fault our magical and revolutionary software fails. It's YOUR fault as users for not working to make our software work as it should.

´╗┐Catherine Shows the World How to Look Beautiful Naturally

Along with several million viewers around the world I have just witnessed the quintessentially British spectacle of the Royal Wedding. I think it fair to say that no country can stage such an event of pomp and ceremony quite like the British. I don't know about you but what struck me most was how so many of the female guests chose clothes of such subdued colours. Catherine's mother for example wore a powder blue outfit of a shade so subtle that it was almost a pearl blue whilst the Queen's outfit was a very subtle shade of primrose.

Whilst Catherine as expected chose a white wedding dress, again she showed the world how to look beautiful naturally by its simplicity. Whilst she is quite clearly a truly beautiful young woman it struck me that she simply didn't need any artificial adornment to look beautiful naturally. I'm sure that she wore some makeup but it was so subtle looking it was almost as if it wasn't there.

The point I am making here is that sometimes, indeed often, less is more. In showing the world how to look beautiful naturally she was able to draw upon her core attributes of good health and natural beauty without resorting to a plethora of artificial adornments in an attempt to look beautiful. She was beautiful. She IS beautiful naturally. For me the simplicity and good taste of her wedding dress gave out the same message as a fine perfume. It simply enhanced the beauty that was already there. There was no need for anything overly brash or ornate. She could have been giving a lesson to the world in how to look beautiful naturally. A fine perfume only needs to be applied sparingly. There is no need to apply it by the bucketful! It is the same with what we wear and the makeup we apply.

So many women seem to think that bold outlandish styled clothes and a surplus of makeup somehow make them look more attractive. Indeed notwithstanding my comments above, some of the women guests wore what can only be described as ridiculous head wear. As well as being unwieldy they certainly didn't look in anyway attractive and almost certainly obscured the view of those around them!

No, if you want to know how to look beautiful naturally go back to first principles. Keep fit through regular exercise and eat a balanced diet. Develop a feeling of inner contentment as best you can and the combined effect of this will enable you to shine. This will show on your face and you will be able to show the world how to look beautiful naturally just as Catherine did. <a href=>bridesmaid dresses</a>
