Robert Scoble is a Hypocrite

I’m a big fan of Robert Scoble. He is one of the best geeks who brings all the latest tech news for me and I follow him almost everywhere. I loved this guy so much I even wrote a blog about it.

Since I read most of his tech news on FB, Twitter G+ I didn’t miss this post from him which brought my attention.
 

 

I had the same feeling in my mind when I heard about 3 Israelis students who were kidnapped. I kept thinking about how innocent people should never be victims for any hate or revenge, doesn’t matter which religion they belong to or which skin color they have. But that brought another question to mind, the fact that I never saw Robert write anything about Palestine kids or women. I thought I might be wrong so I searched a few things on Google but didn’t find anything. Again, I still thought that maybe I’m wrong. Historically, the Israeli government took revenge in a harsh way by killing innocent Palestine’s. So I decided to wait and see if Robert wrote anything during this time to protest against Israeli government. I have been checking his posts since then and unfortunately, there is not a single post or comment he made about this Israeli government terrorism!

This is called self defence Robert? Do you even know how many Palestine kids and women have been killed since you made your last post about this issue? Do you know how many people left their home and how many mothers lost their children since your last post? Where is your so called humanity now? Or does it not apply for Palestine people?

You proved yourself to be a hypocrite. I’m sorry, I will unfollow you until you can prove me wrong with some logics.

Can your employer be your friend?

I would have different answer if I didn’t work for Shane Merem. It’s been 3.5 years since I started working for him and I can hardly remember a moment where I felt like he was my boss. In fact, it was me who acted as if he was my friend by speaking my mind, saying “Shane, I dont want to work on that stupid project”. And I can’t remember a day that I asked for a day off and he didn’t accept. Shane actually encouraged me to take more days off to spend time with my family.

Few months ago when I let him know that I wouldn’t be working for him full time, because I wanted to concentrate a bit more on my own things (i.e. devdec.ca ), he made that transition smooth and easy, and I was able to freely do more work for myself.

I know what you are thinking now. I am a very lucky guy to have a friend like him.  Thank you Shane, I just thought you deserved a public admiration!

Dynamic Height For Facebook Canvas Page

To dynamically increase and decrease Facebook’s canvas page, put the following simple JS(jQuery) code at the bottom of your page. Please make sure to select fixed height 800px in your app setting. Don’t select fluid, it will add scroll to your page.

<div id="fb-root"></div>
<script type="text/javascript" src="http://connect.facebook.net/en_US/all.js"></script>/* Normal height should be your page height at first load. In my case it's 350 */<script charset="utf-8" type="text/javascript">
    var bodyHeight   = $('body').height();
    var normalHeight = 350;
    if(bodyHeight > normalHeight) {
        bodyHeight = bodyHeight - 100;
        FB.Canvas.setSize({ width: 760, height: bodyHeight });
    }else {
        FB.Canvas.setSize({ width: 760, height: normalHeight });
    }
</script>

UPDATE:

A simpler way:

$(window).load( function() {
         FB.Canvas.setAutoGrow();
    });
