It’s probably a good thing that I’ve been in hospital orientation and away from my computer this week. There are some people out there that need their ears boxed. Let’s start with Apple Inc. Who was the idiot that approved Apple’s short-lived iPhone application, Baby Shaker? The application let users silence an imaginary crying infant by shaking the multimedia device. Wow, what fun, allowing users to create a brain damaged baby. Apple’s offensive app was on the market for just two days. They stopped selling it after child welfare organizations went on a rampage. Apple spokeswoman Natalie Kerris said in a statement that the software was “deeply offensive” and should not have been approved for sale. Well, Duh! I hope we don’t see any more screw ups from Apple like this one while Steve Jobs is out on medical leave.
The writers of this show tell viewers that Nurse Jackie walks the line between being a sinner and a saint. I say that she is another missed opportunity to showcase nursing in a positive light. Stay tuned. Sandy Summers from the Truth About Nursing will have a lot to say about this television show.
(Editor’s Note: Hat tip to Kim from Emergiblog for telling me about this upcoming TV show. I don’t have a cable. Now I have one less reason to get it.)
Before I sign off, one of my readers asked me to help him out. Edward J Gordon, RN is doing some research for a book and he wants to hear from you. The book is about burnout. I’m sure most of you know what that is. Here’s what Edward said:
Please send Edward an email at EdGordonRN@cableone.net if you can help him out.
