Idiotic Statements

Have you heard?
The internet is dying, dead & is "completely over."
- Prince
Reason ---- In reference on why he does not want his music to be available via downloads.

Ending of information at your fingertips?
I don't think sooooooooo.

This reminds me of
"Nobody reads a book anymore."
- Steve Jobs
Reason---- doubting the success of Amazon's Kindle and since has changed his stance, since Apple created the iPad.

Saying idiotic comments doesn't win you any brownie points with fans & consumers.
Look at Tom Cruise. Will he ever live down his crazy tirade on the Oprah couch? Box office sales are answering no.
And now we have Mel Gibson who is getting worse every year with his racial slur outbursts. They are both great actors. But the things they say make them sound idiotic.

Back to Prince... he is after all a Jehovahs Witness.
The head of the organization, the WTBTS aka Watchtower Bible & Tract Society has made numerous statements for its followers to be careful of the internet. I remember in the beginning they discouraged internet use period. They have since calmed down a little bit and now just warn of the dangers. "Satan is lurking everywhere." Or what the actual fear is ---- information can be dangerous.

Is it dangerous? Or does the truth set you free?

  1. Well, according to the POTUS, too much information is dangerous, so it must be true. Right? I mean, that's logical to me.
