It’s unusual for a cover of a song to exceed the original especially when that original song was written and performed by Paul McCartney.

I randomly heard a version of “Let Me Roll It” while listening to Pandora the other day, but I believe Brendan Benson has pulled off the rare feat of surpassing a classic by Sir Paul himself.

So many deadly acts of violence over the last several days. Let’s not kid ourselves; we see this at least every day now.

Yet no one in my almost 50 years has been able to convince me that anything in our country’s Constitution gives any one person the right to own a gun.

We are at fault for this. All of us.

Why Apple should have retired its (perfectly good) HomePod design

The new (old) HomePod from Apple shows a level of laziness we haven’t seen from the company since the days of the Macintosh Performa line. Those were definitely really bad times for Apple.

Where is the innovation? Where are the leading designs? Where are the products that get people excited enough to stand in lines around the block?

Today’s Apple is boring.

What Twitter has done to third-party developers using their APIs to create unique user experiences in the Twitter ecosystem is absolutely unacceptable. The developers should have been informed well in advance of any terms of service changes so they could make changes or plan their exit. I am convinced no one actually won here. Not the users, not the developers, and not Twitter.

I really hope that the product architects responsible for placing the ice storage compartment for ice dispensers inside the refrigerator instead of the freezer have been reprimanded severely for their lack of foresight and judgment.

Live Updates: Brazil Election Protesters Storm Government Offices

Sound familiar? Like it or not, we, the citizens of the United States, set an example for the rest of the world. It is up to us to set the example of what a constitutional republic is supposed to look like. We need to do better.

Now that customers and vendors have experienced successes with teams on both sides working 100% remotely, home offices are now in direct competition with traditional offices. The only way businesses will bring their desired talent into an office is to create an environment more desirable than their home offices. This includes both comfort and financial incentives.

So, which companies are up to the challenge and which will settle for second-tier talent because they do not take care of their teams’ needs?

The office came back to life this year—here’s proof

Why are we seeing Jesus commercials during the Bears game? I know Bears fans are probably doing a lot of praying for a better season next year, but it seems like a bit much.

Wouldn’t it be great if networks stopped showing religious and drug-related advertisements?
