Apple and Adobe...

To both of these companies comes a challenge. I've been a fan for YEARS, but let's get real about something that is so minuscule that both of you should be able to solve this one working together.


This is so far from rocket science that it's pitiful. But yet companies like Apple and Adobe don't allow users to merge their user IDs. Personally this would be a lifesaver because for me the one user ID that I want to merge is an email address that I would like to phase out but cannot because it's bound to so many product purchases.

What's truly surprising is that merging information in databases is such an elementary operation and people have been doing it for years so there's really no excuse or reason why not to allow this function for users.

What we really should find out is what's the true problem what's the true reason for not allowing people to do this having multiple Apple IDs for multiple product purchases makes it very difficult when you're trying to use devices to enjoy your media such as movies, music, TV shows etc.

What I personally would like to see is both companies working together to find a solution to allow users to have this flexibility so that we can then dispose of domain names that we may be using, and having problems with spam, viruses, malware, and other issues.

Is there any possibility of you to finding a solution for this please let the user populations of your various companies know. I personally know, that this is been on the plate for a number of years and it's really surprising, but nobody has truly found a solution for it yet. Apple should take the lead on this and Adobe should follow suit.

Also I'm sure that there are many database companies out there that would jump at the chance to assist either one of you in making this a reality for your user populations. So what's the hold up folks?

Thanks in advance for your consideration of this issue.

Best regards,


The Glasses...

by now some of you have seen the glasses and now it's time to share the story behind them which began many years ago while still working at PIXAR.

I worked for PIXAR from 1991-1997. For the most part I was like anyone else there. At least until the day I met Steve Jobs in the hall and we had the first of many talks.

I'd met Steve a couple of years before on University Avenue in Palo Alto. We'd chatted a bunch of times and in one of those conversations I'd shared with him that I looked forward to working with him one day. At the time he said "Mike, anything is possible".

When I saw him at PIXAR, he remembered me by name and said to me "Your dream finally came true". 

Well after a while I was lucky enough to have the ear of Steve often, and on occasion I was lucky enough to go on "the walks" with him that Isaacson speaks of in his book. 

In fact, Steve and I would meet and walk and talk about much outside of PIXAR. It was during this time that Apple was in turmoil and much was on his mind about the company. So we walked and we talked and we both shared with each other observations about what Apple could be and eventually would with the right leadership.

I felt then and still feel this day honored to have had that time with him. He was a great spirit.

One day at work as we sat and chatted, I noticed his glasses more than other times. So I commented "Steve, I really like these glasses of yours, they're quite unlike any I've ever seen except on John Lennon". He smiled and said "Here, try them on".

I was completely taken off guard by this and did try them. That moment stuck with me for a long time. I shared with him that one day I wanted to get some like them as they felt good to wear and easy on the eyes. He smiled and shared with me where he'd had them made.

So that day passed, the moment passed  and Steve passed in October of 2011. Since that time much has been written and along the time many pictures of the glasses have surfaced and I thought long and hard about it and finally made a decision a couple of weeks ago to get my own set of those famous glasses made.

However, being still a price conscious person, I didn't see the need to purchase a plane ticket to fly to New York and have a pair made by Robert Marc.

Wired put out a cover with Steve's Face on it recently and that magazine contained an article which was key to my moving now to get them.

And in the magazine was an article and a group of people wearing glasses similar to Steve's I had to see who'd made them.

Here's the picture of the group of models wearing the glasses:

It's funny for others to wear these glasses because they're all trying to be Steve.

For me it's about the comfort of them, the look of them, and remembering a day when Steve said "Here try them on". That's a memory that makes me smile.

I looked at the credits on the page to see who made the glasses. Gary's Custom Optik of Northridge, CA was listed as the provider of the glasses.

So I found the company information and an email address and sent them a note that explained my situation that I needed glasses, had purchased some from china which I had been pleased with but wanted to get a new set and wondered if they'd help me.

What is so fun about going to get these was to meet Gary. A great guy, very sharp and very customer centric. Steve would have seen him for his glasses had he been here. That I know.

So Gary called me and I went to the store for a fitting to order the glasses. He went over all the options with me, then we discussed lens sizing for optimal look and vision as well. One thing about ordering online, it's easy, but it's not always precise.

Working with Gary was easy and he's been doing this a long time. 40 years in the business. I enjoyed sharing with him some things that I'd experienced with Steve years ago and then found out that they'd been contracted to provide glasses for the upcoming Steve Jobs movie.

I ordered my glasses and he called when they were ready and I went to get a final fitting and then left with the chinese glasses in the case and my new Steve Jobs style glasses on my face. They've only left me for sleeping and are comfortable to wear.

I recommend that many go and visit Gary for their glasses. He's a consumate professional and will ensure that you have eyewear that fits your face, looks amazing and is of the highest quality. This is definitely a DocMurdock APPROVED business.

Thanks Gary for creating a memorable set of eyewear for me. I look forward to wearing these each and every day and they are truly some amazing glasses.

Warren Buffett & The Deficit...

Am going to share this simply because it sounds good. Vote with your heart when you do. That's all I have to say. I'd vote for Buffett, but only if he promised not to pass while in office.

Warren Buffett, in a recent interview with CNBC, offers one of the best quotes about the debt ceiling:

"I could end the deficit in 5 minutes," he told CNBC. "You just
Pass a law that says that anytime there is a deficit of more
Than 3% of GDP, all sitting members of Congress are ineligible
for re-election."

The 26th amendment (granting the right to vote for 18 year-olds)
Took only 3 months & 8 days to be ratified! Why? Simple!
The people demanded it. That was in 1971 - before computers, e-mail,
Cell phones, etc.

Of the 27 amendments to the Constitution, seven (7) took one (1) year
Or less to become the law of the land - all
Because of public pressure.

Warren Buffet is asking each addressee to forward this email to
A minimum of twenty people on their address list; in turn ask
Each of those to do likewise.

In three days, most people in The United States of America will
Have the message. This is one idea that really should be passed Around.
Congressional Reform Act of 2012
1. No Tenure / No Pension.
A Congressman/woman collects a salary while in office and receives noPay when they're out of office.
2. Congress (past, present & future) participates in Social

All funds in the Congressional retirement fund move to the
Social Security system immediately. All future
Funds flow into
The Social Security system, and Congress participates with the
American people. It may not be used for any other purpose.
3. Congress can purchase their own retirement plan, just as all
Americans do.
4. Congress will no longer vote themselves a pay raise.
Congressional pay will rise by the lower of CPI or 3%.
5. Congress loses their current health care system and
Participates in the same health care system as the American people.
6. Congress must equally abide by all laws they impose on the
American people.
All contracts with past and present Congressmen/women are void
Effective 12/1/12. The American people did not make this
Contract with Congressmen/women.

Congress made all these contracts for themselves. Serving in
Congress is an honor, not a career. The Founding Fathers
Envisioned citizen legislators, so ours should serve their
Term(s), then go home and back to work.

If each person contacts a minimum of twenty people then it will
Only take three days for most people (in the U.S. ) to receive
The message. Don't you think it's time?


If you agree, pass it on. If not, delete.
You are one of my 20+ - Please keep it going, and thanks

The year was 1955--- Show this to the young ones.

Interesting indeed. Shared with me by a friend who remembers those days.

Did you hear the post office is 
thinking about charging 7 cents
 just to mail a letter? 

  If they raise the minimum wage 
to $1.00, nobody will be able to
 hire outside help at the store. 

  When I first started driving, who 
would have thought gas would
 someday cost 25 cents a gallon? Guess we'd be better off leaving the car in the garage. 

  I'm afraid to send my kids to the 
movies any more.  Ever since they
 let Clark Gable get by with saying DAMN in GONE WITH THE WIND, it seems every new movie has either HELL or DAMN in it. 

I read the other day where some
scientist thinks it's possible to put
 a man on the moon by the end of the century.  They even have some fellows they call astronauts preparing for it down in Texas . 

  Did you see where some baseball 
player just signed a contract for
 $50,000 a year just to play ball? It wouldn't surprise me if someday they'll be making more than the President. 
I never thought I'd see the day 
all our kitchen appliances would
 be electric. 
They're even making electric typewriters now. 

  It's too bad things are so tough 
nowadays.  I see where a few
 married women are having to work to make ends meet. 

  It won't be long before young 
couples are going to have to hire
 someone to watch their kids so they can both work. 

  I'm afraid the Volkswagen car 
is going to open the door to a
 whole lot of foreign business. 

  Thank goodness I won't live to 
see the day when the Government
 takes half our income in taxes. 
I sometimes wonder if we are electing the best people to government. 

  The fast food restaurant is 
convenient for a quick meal,
 but I seriously doubt they will ever catch on. 

  There is no sense going on short 
trips anymore for a weekend.  It
 costs nearly $2.00 a night to stay in a hotel. 


No one can afford to be sick
anymore.  At $15.00 a day in
 the hospital, it's too rich for my blood. 

If they think I'll pay 30 cents
 for a haircut, forget it. 

Know any friends who would get a kick out of these, pass this on! 

Be sure and send it to your kids and grand kids, too

Get A Page Like This!!

So you've created this great product, you've got everything ready to go, you're ready to put it on the web...OH SHOOT!! We forgot to build a page for this!!!
You know you can sell 100 of these right away, but your designer is on vacation and you've no where else to turn! You start shopping around with others and you find out that they want $5000, $10,000 or more just to put up a page for you. Can you do this yourself? You could if you knew how. What can you do?

Have you ever been in that situation?

I personally know of people that have LOST thousands and even hundreds of thousands of dollars in revenue by missing a key piece to their marketing puzzle. The squeeze page, and the sales page.

The Squeeze page is the wind up to the marketing of your product. Basically you have a page set up, you're showing a video, talking about your product or service, or you simply have a picture and a name capture form that gets name/email/phone (optional) from people visiting your site that you're talking about at events, or promoting on facebook or twitter, and you're building your list to market to when your product or service is ready.

The Sales page is the PITCH. You're there in your video, you're talking about the product or service, you're giving people a chance to Add to Cart and get your product or service quickly. Maybe you have testimonials about your work, it's a refined piece of advertising. Your logo is on top, you've got some nice colors happening, people feel good about what they're seeing, you're establishing trust and then comes the opportunity to sell them the product and give them a thank you page where they can download information, get your product, or simply be told to watch out for the email coming to them requesting more information.

With the cost of domains and hosting, it's a wonder that more people don't have these out there, but they don't and they lose thousands each day for their business lacking these key marketing tools.

We're here to change that and we're doing it for a great price. This is an investment in your business. It's an ongoing tool to serve you and your products and services, getting you a quick marketing arm out there to bring people to your site, to create that list and give you a flock of customers to market/sell to who WANT TO KNOW ABOUT YOUR PRODUCTS.

So where's the catch? You can read more about things on the website at see the video, read about our PREMIER package that includes your hosting for your site(s), and the domain name as well. We're ready to help you and your business be seen by many, and then be able to deliver to them quickly your offerings.

If you're shopping around for a Squeeze Page/Sales Page and want to know the quickest way to get one, you'll want to get to our site immediately and sign up. We still have a few spots left open on this and once they're gone, then the $997 price will go away.

We'd hate for you to miss out on something that will change your presence on the web in a good way. Don't waste time, get over to right now.

Thanks for taking time out of your day to read this. Happy Sunday!


Allen West Letter to President Obama

I hope this is readable, especially by people like Mike Madden, Mrs. Hancock, Eugene Dittler and passed along to others so that we can all receive an answer from our current 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue OCCUPANT. Personally as a VET, I'd like to know "What were you thinking?" Who were you looking out for? What were you protecting by turning someone like this over to someone who was going to wash their hands of this matter while our brothers, sisters, mothers, fathers, aunts, uncles, cousins, etc., die to protect our freedom?

Why in UNIVERSE should you be re-elected to the highest office in the land? So that as Oprah put it in India you can "make mistakes?" Do that on YOUR TIME, NOT ON OURS!

And...have some balls to step up and explain things like this. You can google "allen west letter to president" to see how broad this one has gone. It's MEMORIAL DAY WEEKEND. A weekend where we HONOR our passed service people, as well as those who still are out there working and watching and marching and fighting to keep our shores as free as they are.

Mr. President...Can you step up to the mic and give us an answer? (insert the sound of a billion crickets here).

Of course if the image I posted is not readable it will be on posterous when I repost this.


And for those VETS out there who like me stand in a moment of silence this weekend/tomorrow for our fallen brothers/sisters/fathers/mothers/family I say THANK YOU FOR YOUR SERVICE. THANK YOU FOR STANDING WITH ME FOR OUR COUNTRY. I HONOR YOU. I BLESS YOU. I WISH YOU GOD SPEED.

And for all of the active duty personnel, no matter what branch of service. THANK YOU for doing what you do, wherever you do it, in the name of the Stars & Stripes which fly over this land and which serve as a beacon to those who would desire a better way of being in their time here.

We love you. God bless you, your families, and God bless America.

Here's the letter that was unclear of facebook:

Body by Vi...

So if you're hanging around with me in any form online, you've heard me mention this new program that I am on. Bodybyvi is what it's called. 
It's developed by a company called Visalus Sciences and it's a lifestyle change, not just a weightloss program. Sure you can lose the weight, that's the easy side of things, but the lifestyle changing is something you have to move into if you desire to be complete. Sure that's a bold statement, but if I didn't believe it, I'd not be using the product.

A month ago I tried a 5 shake sample pack and was impressed to say the least. I then ordered 2 packages of shake mix and decided to try it out to see what my result would be. I was impressed with a couple of things in this program:

b. actual results as in the weight does come off
c. actual results as in the weight STAYS OFF
d. the ingredients are healthy and your body responds well to them
e. if you're doing kosher things, it's kosher certified.
f. if you're diabetic this is good stuff for you as well.

So what have my results been you ask?

In the first 19 days of my "challenge" I've lost 15lbs and it's stayed off. Sometimes weight will just fall off, other times it will slowly move down the scale. My diet? Right now I am doing two shakes a day and then for an evening meal I have a small portion sensible meal. Sometimes just veggies, or I have chicken or steak in smaller portions that I have previously.

I drink Alkaline water (not a program requirement, just one of desire by me) during the day and I've cut my caffeine consumption down considerably as I don't feel a need for coffee when drinking the shakes. The metabolism is just moving right along and I rarely tire when walking the dog now.

I made a decision financially as well. This is the fun part. I wanted to see what my true savings would be monthly if I stopped doing all the eating out that I was doing previously. It's SHOCKING!


a. breakfast at Carl's Jr.

b. Lunch at Carl's Jr.

c. Dinner at Rubio's (fish taco tuesdays!!!)

d. Pizza from Papa John's or some other eating out venue.

Yes, that was my routine and it was one that was based on stress-eating. Now, same amount of stress at times, less eating. Go figure!! 

Taking those and multiplying them times 5-6 days a week...we're talking a HUGE investment in the fast food industry as well as the medical one for the health problems.

With Visalus I bought a Transformation Kit ($250.00) and I am still using that now and it's not even been 1 month. The savings...A LOT! Because when running out for fast food, there's the gas expense in there as well. I've been stashing that money back into the bank and now I can look forward to having some extra cash each month because where a month was costing around $450.00 - $550.00 for food, it's now $250 and that's substantial.

As my business grows and some others see the benefits in this, they'll join our "TEAM" and we'll grow their business together with ours and eventually we'll achieve some monthly residual income as well as a chance to have a BMW lease paid for by the company. That's second nature for me. The primary reason I got into this was not the income or the car. It's the HEALTH. That's my WHY.

So I wanted to take a minute and share with you this is why I am doing this business and program. It's working for me. Will it work for you? That depends on you. Would I recommend it? For the first time in more than 20 years, my own Father looked at me and said "DAMN!! You've LOST WEIGHT!!!" 

(He didn't even say that when I'd dropped 35lbs using HCG (which is a great kickstarter for weightloss, but not a lifestyle you can sustain. I guarantee that. I gained back all but 2 of those lbs in less than 1 year after I'd gotten on HCG. It's not something I encourage people to use as a long term solution. It's basically yo-yo dieting. However, if that's your kick then go to and purchase from there. That's the best solution for that on the market.)

Now, if you're serious about a shift in lifestyle that's healthy, that sustains, that doesn't make you crave things when you look at them, that keeps you full all day long, that leaves your body in better shape than it found it, and that will allow you to sleep at night knowing you're doing good things for you, then take a moment and go to: and learn more about this.

And if you're interested in doing the business you can learn more about it there, you can also see some of the tools that the program provides you when you sign up as a distributor to allow you to easily promote the program to others and create that residual income in your life. Here are some of the other sites they give you as a distributor, all ready to go and show, all ready to capture names, send emails to prospective clients and manage the process in an amazing way: - If you're wanting a BMW to drive around and enjoy paid for by the company, learn more here - Learn more about weight loss here - Learn how to leverage social media to make an income online easily - Learn fast easy ways to recessionproof your income NOW, not later.

In my business as DocMurdock when I like something I give it my "DocMurdock-APPROVED" stamp. Visalus gets that BIGTIME! It's working for me and I am not finished with my challenge yet. When I am you'll love the results as much as I will. I can't wait to share them with you and I'd be honored if you'd join me on this ride. It's a great one and it will truly change your life for the better.

Check out the sites, let me know if you have questions and I look forward to seeing less and less of you as we journey together to our chosen goal :)

With much love, understanding and wishes for abundance in your life.

Michael Murdock
