Trump's immagration ban - playing games with his voters

This whole saga of banning people from 7 selected country to prevent inappropriate people entering the USA is preposterous. Trumpy, do you really think terrorist will come directly from those countries. Do you really think it will all stop now?  You must be delusional. The only thing you are doing is making these people think more creatively and enter your little domain from other countries. That is all.

What you have done now is create more enemies in more countries making US citizens more unsafe.

The war on the US was not created by the Middle-East, it was created by the US foreign policy, media, propaganda, economic greed and dependency on oil. 
I guess any country has a right to refuse immigrants from certain countries, but there are better diplomatic ways of doing it. Trumpy did it without  planning and thinking it through. It was a move to please his uneducated voters and to attract the type of attention he thrives on.

Periscope bad connection all the time

Periscope is a great app or idea, but I have to say 99% of the time you get bad connection or perpetual zebra like idle static video connection on your screen.  Somehow somebody is seeing whatever is being shown, but I guess that is only 1% of the time.

So, in order for Periscope to be really successful they need to do two things. Increase the connection between people and do something about the bandwidth problem that people have.
The Periscope bad connection or connection failed is really something that needs to be addressed in order for really good success.  
I tried today to watch various new year celebrations but no avail. You can hardly see anything, the slow moving chevron on the top of your screen from the Periscope app keeps on rolling while your Periscope enjoyment goes down the drain.
They should check if the sender has good enough band with for the receivers to enjoy their experience without frustration!!!!
I am sure that the programmers at Twitter know this, but the corpo…
