I had difficulty logging into facebook from my mobile phone yesterday. It kept rejecting my attempts to log in. I was curious about this, as it had never happened before. I did a bit of Googling but couldn't really find a satisfactory solution, or a remedy for this problem. I was thinking maybe because I'm logged in from my pc at home via I don't sign in our out: I assume that with the correct cookies in places I'm automatically signed in... OR... is it perhaps like those messages you see with yahoo "stay signed in for two weeks." Does FBK think I'm already signed in so it blocks the attempt from my phone? Oh yeah, I almost forgot about the blogosphere:::
50% Of Android Phones Now Running OS 2.1 - Every few weeks, Google's Android team updates their Platform Versions page that breaks down how many Android devices are running each version of the OS.

By the way I'm working on a new project online and fine-tuning this blog a little more. The blog has seen huge swings in traffic, most for no apparent reason. I'm watching Google analytics and I've signed on to two other services in efforts to get a better view of what's happening. In glanicng at my calendar, I noticed that Father's Day is almost upon us...
In honour of Dad's Day this Sunday, Irie Diva is “taking a small moment to say thanks dad, good fathers are few and far in between and I am blessed to have you in my life…”

While World Cup 2010 tops news programs in other lands, the BP Gulf oil spill and President Barack Obama's reaction to it have taken center stage in the evening newscasts on US network television. As Cuba readies itself to face the effects of the BP oil spill, News of St. John wonders whether the Virgin Islands will be next and Pancier's Photo Blog declares: “Enough talk folks. Fix it and clean it up. 58 days is much too long…”

Because, like the fine publication Tablet, whom I borrowed this concept from, I too am committed to bringing you the best, smartest, most enlightening and entertaining reporting and writing I'm able to provide, all free of charge. I take pride in my loyal readership, and I'm thrilled that you choose to engage with me in a way that is both thoughtful and thought-provoking. But the Internet, for all of its wonders, poses challenges to civilized and constructive discussion, allowing vocal—and, often, anonymous—minorities to drag it down with invective (and worse).

I'm asking people who'd like to post comments on my blog to pay a nominal fee—less a paywall than a gesture of your own commitment to the cause of great conversation. All proceeds go to helping me bring you the provocative and/or entertaining articles that brought you here in the first place.

Readers can still interact with me FREE of charge via Facebook comments and Google+ comments! You can also reach me via Twitter @davelucas

I hope this new largely symbolic measure will help create a more pleasant and cultivated environment for all! Those of you who choose to contribute, thanks for your support.
