Recommendations of Cool Stuff

Usually when I see a list of quotes, there might be one or two that I like. Here they are all zingers:

• “I’ve always been very careful never to predict anything that has not already happened.” — Marshall McLuhan
• “The cure for boredom is curiosity. There is no cure for curiosity.” — Dorothy Parker
• “Decisions are made by those who show up.” — Jennifer Pahlka
• “If at first the idea is not absurd, then there is no hope for it.” — Albert Einstein
• “Not long ago what we have today was so implausible that nobody bothered to say it would never happen.“ — Marc Andreessen
• “The first 90% of a project is a lot easier than the second 90%.” — Tim Sweeney
• “If you don’t like change, you are going to like irrelevance even less.” — General Shinseki

Unlocking phone:
If you bought a phone that’s locked to a specific mobile carrier, you won’t be able to use it with another carrier until you get it unlocked. AT&T says they will unlock phones you’ve had for two years, but the process is so arduous that it’s never worked for me. They make it difficult on purpose, I suspect. But I’ve unlocked phones using an unlocking service on eBay and paying $6 per phone. I gave them the phone’s 15-digit IMEI (International Mobile Equipment Identity) serial number and a day later they sent me an email to let me know it’s been unlocked. I have no idea how they do it, but it works. — MF
