Petition: Body cameras for Baltimore police?


Recent events in Ferguson, MO have highlighted the lack of transparency in law enforcement when community residents question the actions of local police officers. These questionable offenses by law enforcement led many to cry for help and rally for justice. Over 800 miles separate Baltimore, MD from Ferguson, MO, but our stories of pain and unanswered questions eerily mirror each other in the area of police brutality.
This petition will seek to require all law enforcement officials to wear a body camera to record interactions with the community. Numerous studies and research reveal that individuals change or alter their behavior when aware that an outside body is watching or monitoring their actions. Body cameras will undoubtedly and quickly bring answers to questions pertaining to police brutality.
In addition, this petition will require law enforcement to live in the jurisdictions they serve. Similar to the requirement of public servants and politicians to live in the jurisdictions they serve, law enforcement will be required to be familiar with the areas they serve and protect prior to policing the jurisdiction.
For generations, communities have been plagued by stories of police brutality and questionable actions by law enforcement officials. The time is now for transparency and justice for everyone. “It Stops Today” because our “Hands are Up”!
Thank you for taking the time to sign the petition. Every signature counts!

Comments from people all over the web about Darren Wilson vs. Mike Brown...















"Any child regardless of race should be taught not to steal, not to attack others, to respect themselves, to respect others, work hard, not do drugs, and to know that choices good or bad have consequences. Sadly that young man made multiple bad choices that night that lead to his death. HE made those choices." - el jim chapo guzman

"And Darren wilson made the most important ONE...The final decision. Regardless of any of our stance on the matter. Also...you either most likely don't have kids or have very very young kids...If you find a teen that follows the rules to t he T and doesn't push the limits in life...give me a call." - Kingly_Caracter

SEE MORE?!

Nathan Cowen - On the day they named Wilson as the shooter the chief of police, in a news conference, said he'd spoken to Wilson and that at the time of the shooting he knew nothing about the incident at the store. This week that all changed? We saw it with Trayvon. Total character assassination to distract from the travesty of the events that truly matter

Jeannaandjosh Poe Ridiculous people are still even ranting about this!! It was a sad and messed up situation but it wouldn't have mattered if he was white black Mexican green or pink he did what he thought he had to do to protect his life. I bet noone would be acting like this if the child wasn't black. It needs to be let go all this riot is terrible we have enough enemies trying to hurt the us

Shit is Real in Michael Brown’s hometown....



 After months of tension, marches and sporadic violence, and then the unbearable anxiety of waiting over the past few days, there was a surreal pause just past 8 p.m. local time Monday on the streets of Michael Brown’s home town.
At the center of the crowd blocking the avenue in front of police headquarters, in a car with a masked man at the wheel, someone turned up the radio so the demonstrators could hear the prosecutor’s news conference.
The hundreds of protesters became as solemn and quiet as the officers posted in a long line behind a barricade. The prosecutor’s voice droned. The crowd leaned in to hear.
And then — pandemonium.
“It’s legal to kill unarmed black men in America!” shouted a man known as T. Dubb standing on top of the car with a gas mask slung over his baseball cap. Shortly, he would need the mask.
A portion of the crowd peeled off and sprinted toward the barricade. Several water bottles were hurled at the officers, who batted them away with plastic shields. The protesters began chanting obscenities.
With that pause for the prosecutor, they had forgotten the one requested by the Brown family — 4 1/2 minutes of silence before the demonstrations began, to mark the 4 1/2 hours his body lay on Canfield Drive.
Soon South Florissant Avenue was a chaotic scene of shifting lines of police and protesters, moments of calm and minutes of brief panic and anger as some demonstrators taunted police and others fled, only to surge back again. The majority of protesters were peacefully passionate. Police fired tear gas. Two police cars were engulfed in flames. Glass from half a dozen smashed shop windows — among them a beauty shop, a hardware store, a Chinese restaurant, a dentist’s office — glittered in the gleam of police spotlights and television cameras.

Petition For Body Cameras in Ferguson, Missouri?


Require Ferguson and St. Louis County and City police officers to wear body cameras

My name is Courtney Curtis. I’m a native of Ferguson, Missouri. I’ve spent my whole life in this community. Now, I am fortunate enough to represent our community in the State Legislature.
But I’m still a young black man who has encountered problems with the police. Five years ago, while waiting for a college friend of mine in his gated community in Kansas City, I was handcuffed, had my car searched against my will and was almost arrested. My crime? Sitting on the back of my car, working on my business plan, while waiting for a friend. I filed a complaint. No action was ever taken.
Fast-forward five years. I was pulled over for supposedly having a broken tail light. After the police officer runs my ID, he comes back and says the tail light is back on. Must have been a short, he says. Three days later, an unarmed Mike Brown was killed in the street. One incident brushed under the rug, another goes horribly wrong.
The killing of Michael Brown made me sick. But what keeps me up at night is that it will happen again unless we do something. We can’t bring Michael Brown back – but we can make sure his death is not in vain. It is up to us to do something.
That's why I'm asking for the St. Louis County Police Department, the St. Louis City Police Department and the Ferguson Police Department to require police officers to wear cameras. We're simultaneously going to file legislation requiring police officers all across Missouri to wear cameras. Sign this petition to support our cause and help get these bills passed.
Attaching cameras to the police officers' uniforms would come with many benefits. The cameras would cost a few hundreds dollars each and would:
- Provide greater transparency and a constant third party witness.
- Enhance police and citizen motivation to act lawfully and truthfully.
- Lessen the chance of deadly force being used by police.
- Increase citizen's trust of his/her police force thanks to recorded actions.

Police departments are using or testing on-body cameras and they're reportedly reducing police misconduct. When the Rialto Police Department in California adopted cameras, the number of complaints filed against officers fell by 88 percent and the use of force by officers fell by almost 60 percent.
There are still so many things unknown about Michael Brown’s death it’s astonishing. And still more change is needed for a true eradication of the types of problems that led to Michael’s death. But one thing we can control and do right now is to create accountability – for both police and citizens – with a digital record of what happens when a police officer interacts with a citizen. Vest cameras won’t solve all of our problems – but they will be a good start – and will create an accurate record of what happens.
The trust between my community, others and law enforcement is broken. Until all police departments have cameras in place, the trust will continue to be broken. Let's join together and ask for that trust to be restored with this first step.
Councilwoman Erby and I are asking for your signature on this petition so that we can continue to push for Ferguson, St. Louis County and St. Louis City police to adopt cameras, then start the process of enacting body camera legislation in Missouri.

Dear RadioShack: Close Stores on Thanksgiving Day! [Petition]


My husband has been in retail as long as I've known him and longer than that. Although he has worked other jobs, he has enjoyed retail above everything else. When he became manager of RadioShack, we knew he would have longer hours, and he would have many more responsibilities, but I told him it was ok, because we both knew that we would at least have one or two days off a week and our holidays. Unfortunately, this year it is no longer true... 
This year, RadioShack had orginally planned to open their door at 8 a.m. on Thanksgiving Day and not close until midnight. They would then be reopening at 5 a.m. on Black Friday. Now thankfully, their plans have changed. They are still opening at 8 a.m. on Thanksgiving, but will close down at noon, and reopen at 5 p.m. until midnight. The same hours apply for Black Friday, which means my husband and other employees need to be at his store about 4 a.m. Thankfully, the new hours help split the shifts and not over work their employees, and people still get to spend their Thanksgiving with family, but it can still affect people. I am personally much happier with their decision, but I still don't believe anyone should be forced to work on a holiday except in certain situations, certainly not those in retail. Because of this, I still believe RadioShack and ALL stores should shut their doors on Thanksgiving. 
By signing this petition, you will be telling RadioShack that you do not agree with their choice of opening their doors at all on Thanksgiving, and that family values are still more important than consumerism and greed. You will also be sending a message, not only to RadioShack, but to all the other companies that are forcing their stores to be open on Thanksgiving. Because if we do not say something now, forcing stores to be open at all, whether it's all day or part of the day, on Thanksgiving will become the standard, and all people who work in retail will no longer be allowed to spend any part of their holiday with their family. Again, I ask that you take a stand with me and tell them enough is enough! Tell them you will NOT be shopping at their store on Thanksgiving Day and you completely disagree with destroying a holiday that for many is the only chance they have to see certain loved ones.

(Video) 10 Reasons Why Nas Is Better Than Jay Z?!



It's now a tired discussion, but one that hasn't been definitively answered: Who's better: Queensbridge's prodigal son or Marcy's ambassador? The two have been at odds with one another since Nas reportedly flaked on a Reasonable Doubt recording session. They then entered into a back-and-forth that culminated in one of rap's greatest on-record beefs. A beef that produced some of each rapper's best work. It's also a beef that, according to Hot 97 listeners in 2001, Nas won. But when determining who's the better MC, we should start in 1994.
It was two years before Jay Z would drop his debut. It was the year when the Notorious B.I.G. would drop the highly anticipated Ready to Die. But, more importantly, it's the year when Nasir Jones dropped Illmatic, the culmination of his work with his mentor Large Professor and a bevy of the best producers available at the time: Q-Tip, DJ Premier, and Pete Rock. Lean, expertly produced, and preternaturally rapped, the 10-track project was given the then highly coveted five mic rating in The Source and would go down in history as the greatest rap album ever recorded. Despite himself releasing two albums that have been declared "classic" (Reasonable Doubt and The Blueprint), Jay Z has not released an album as good as Nas' debut.
It's not too difficult to surmise why: Jay Z has openly admitted to dumbing down his content to reach more listeners. Hov is a ruthless capitalist, a man who first sees bottom-lines and works backward in order to achieve his desired result. His goal, as he stated on record many times, was to become a multimillionaire many times over ("I'm raping Def Jam 'til I'm the Hundred-Million Man"). In order to accomplish that goal, Jay Z has trend-hopped his way through the years, adopting new flows, sounds, and styles from fresh talent. He hones his marketing acumen, figuring out new ways to bank off his image, even going so far as to fake retire.
Nas, for the most part, stayed true to himself. Sure, there was the whole Nastradamus fiasco, but everyone's allowed a misstep. Instead of borrowing flows, he refined the one he came in with. His flow is held in such high regard that newer rappers bragged about approximating it. Remember the opening to My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy? There's a new NYC rapper who, though nice with the pen, is getting massive shine because people thought he was Nas. And at a time when older rappers are trying to figure out a way to gracefully age while staying hip to the new shit, Nas, as displayed on Life Is Good, is comfortable doing what feels comfortable to him. There's no Drake hook. No Hit-Boy beat. No European fashion on the cover. Just Nas. In 2014, that sounds like a win.

For more evidence of why Nas trumps Jay Z, watch the video for 10 Reasons Nas Is Better Than Jay Z.

It’s here. The new iMac with Retina 5K display?!


With 14.7 million pixels — and more power than ever — inside the same amazingly thin design, the new 27-inch iMac with Retina 5K display is a sight to behold. And with OS X Yosemite, you won’t just see more. You’ll do more.

iMac has always been about having a huge, immersive place to see and create amazing things. So making the best possible iMac meant making the best possible display. The new 27‑inch iMac with Retina 5K display has four times as many pixels as the standard 27‑inch iMac display. So you experience unbelievable detail. On an unbelievable scale.

At such a scale, even the best existing technologies wouldn’t have made this iMac possible. So we did the impossible — developing a display with the performance to light up 14.7 million pixels, reducing energy consumption while maintaining our high standard for brightness, and advancing image quality for the most striking contrast ever.
And we did it all without compromising the incredibly thin design, just 5 mm at its edge.

TYGA COVERS DIGITAL ‘VIBE'; DISSES DRAKE?

tyga vibe

Tyga’s Attack.
In the midst of his disagreements with label YMCMB, Tyga keeps his chains heavy on the digital cover of VIBE. While discussing his new album and everything else in between, he elaborates on his rift with Young Money. Full article here. Oy vey!
Is Young Money a part of the creative process on this album?
Nah. I tend to distance myself from them.

Are you trying to break out on your own?
Yeah, I’m tryna’ go independent. I don’t really get along with Drake. I don’t really get along with Nicki.

Why?
I don’t like Drake as a person. He’s just fake to me. I like his music; you know what I’m saying? I think his music is good, but we’re all different people. We were forced together and it was kinda’ like we were forcing relationships together. It is what it is. But I been friends with Chris [Brown] for like six years. That’s my real genuine friend. We hang out all the time. He lives up the street from me, so we don’t just do music we hang. I think being signed to Young Money, everybody felt like they had to force a relationship ‘cause Wayne put us together. At the end of the day the reason why I signed to Young Money is because of Wayne. Not because of Drake, not because of Nicki. It was because of Wayne and my relationship with him. I try to be cool with everybody, but sometimes, everybody just has different personalities, motives, and different characters. When you realize that, you realize that’s not a place where you want to continue to grow.

Why Can’t Women Handle Dick?

Can-You-Handle-Dick-Or-Nah

9 out of 10 women reading this are dishonest. I’m not talking about telling lies or stealing, I mean dishonest in terms that they can’t even admit to themselves who they are and what they want for fear of being looked down upon. I once asked a girl who was going through drama with her boo what she wanted from him, a relationship or a friendship? Her response was that she didn’t have time for any of that because she was going to school and had to figure out her next move after graduation. I didn’t ask her shit about school or work goals, I asked her straight up what she wanted from the guy she was spending her nights stressing over. Her pride wouldn’t allow her to be honest enough to say, “Yes, I like him and I would like to be with him, but I’m afraid he doesn’t want the same– help.” She gave me a bullshit answer that wouldn’t make her seem weak, soft, or thirsty. The more Insecure the woman, the harder she tries to hide her insecurity behind attitude and excuses. No one can help you if you’re too prideful to admit what you want and that you’re afraid you won’t get it.

Women_Make_Wrong_Choices

In order to safeguard their feelings, some women drape a cloak of “I’m good” over themselves and pretend that they don’t care about anything. I don’t want him to spend time with me, I’m busy anyway—Bitch Stop Lying. I don’t want him to put me first, I’m not trying to be his girl anyway—Bitch Stop Lying. I don’t want other people to like me, I’m a lone wolf—Bitch Stop Lying. I don’t want him to ask me to be official, I’m not looking for anything serious anyway—Bitch Stop Lying! To even bring up, “I’m not even worried about him,” is an admission of being worried about him, or else you wouldn’t have brought him up! I’m going to let you in on a secret, men don’t believe you, that’s why they call your bluff, toy with your emotions, and act as if they don’t care—your apathy is transparent. Sad, lonely, and angry women make bad relationship choices because their actions don’t match the words coming out of their mouths. Players eat passive and defensive women for breakfast, because their buttons are out in the open and easy to push.

When a person thinks they will fail at something or be rejected, they become passive and act if they weren’t trying in the first place. This way if they don’t get the results they really want, it won’t seem like they failed. Read that again and understand it because I bet you do that shit. Single and happy, focusing on me, raising my child, waiting on Jesus to return, blah blah blah. That’s all bullshit. You can front like you’re not on the racetrack, but we know that you’re still secretly in the race hoping to get chose! How do I know that’s true? When a seemingly perfect man slides you his number, you don’t delete it, you get excited, all of those excuses go out the window, and all you can think of is, “Please God let this one be The One.” YOU. ARE. NOT. HONEST. The only thing that will save you from being played is to be honest about your shortcomings.

exploit-these-hoes

If you aren’t real enough to say, “The reason I want to call this man and yell at him for not calling me all week, isn’t because I love him, but because I have a weakness for attention and affection because my father never gave me that,” then you will confuse love of attention with love of that person. Those women that are able to self-diagnose themselves don’t have anxiety, they don’t cry, they don’t snap, they don’t blow up a dude’s phone, and they don’t ask every one of their friends their opinion on “What do you think he means by this text.” To be honest about your flaws is to be free of male manipulation, because men can’t pull your strings if you’ve already cut those motherfuckers. Today I’m going to talk about why women can’t handle Dick. No, Ratchet Raccoon, I’m not talking about how you take the penis of a nigga that barely likes you, I’m talking about how to handle users. Men know when women are fronting, they know the secret war going on inside your head when they don’t give you what you want, and they use that insecurity to their advantage because you aren’t honest enough to plug those holes and rebuke male mind games. So, if you’re ready to be honest to the point that it hurts, let’s talk about Dick.

WHY are some people so disappointed that Blue Ivy looks Black?!

image

Some people are really, really disappointed that Blue Ivy looks Black.
The people who wanted Blue Ivy to be their racially ambiguous dream-child have found themselves in the midst of a rude awakening. It appears that they forgot, or perhaps never cared to realize, that Blue Ivy is the child of two Black parents, and that their hopes and dreams of her being the beige child they could obsess over, and project their anti-Blackness onto, have been deferred. For as Blue Ivy grows and develops into the beautiful child that she is, her features have not stayed in the realm of Whiteness that so many of us are comfortable with when it comes to finding Black to be beautiful. Her hair is not the wavy texture that they hoped for. Her nose is not the thin one they hoped for. Her skin is not the beige, off-white, lemon color that they hoped for. Blue Ivy is a Black child with full lips, hair that grows defiantly towards the sky, and skin that is much more chocolate than vanilla.
And this has many people furious.
Perhaps it was inevitable.
Beyonce, for all her strengths and weaknesses, has not always presented an aesthetically Black image to the public. Her light skin and preference for straight blonde hair has, all too often, allowed her to appear as racially ambiguous in the public imagination. She could easily “pass” for a number of races, and no one would probably know the difference, and I think this is playing a part in the way Blue Ivy, her beautiful Black child, is being perceived. It’s as if people expect Blue Ivy to look like a biracial child despite having two Black parents. Some of those who are most frustrated and disappointed with Blue Ivy’s apparent Blackness are fans of Beyonce. It is entirely possible that they latched on to the singer due to her racially ambiguous features that allowed them to project their anti-Blackness onto her. This, however, has not been the case with Blue Ivy. They have grown frustrated with the fact that Blue Ivy’s hair is “not done,” they have lamented that she looks “too much like her dad,” and they have even stated their disappointment in how dark she is. People wanted Blue Ivy to serve as the recipient of their anti-Black desires and she has not turned out to be that for them.
It’s impossible to have a discussion about Blue Ivy being used as a projection of our anti-Blackness without mentioning North West, the daughter of Kanye West and Kim Kardashian. So far, North West has “passed” the test. Her hair is wavy enough, her skin is beige enough, and her features are palatable enough to those who are looking for a racially ambiguous dream-child to be recipient of their anti-Black projections. North West, unlike Blue Ivy, is an “appropriate” Black child, at least when it comes to the kind of children we prefer to fawn over in the media. Those commenting on the two children have praised Kim for refining North West’s Blackness by “laying” her hair down, but have decried Beyonce for refusing to “tame” or “do” Blue Ivy’s hair. The implication here being that our hair is something that needs to be controlled rather than being allowed to do its own thing, in its natural state. People have couched their anti-Blackness under “her hair needs to be done,” but anyone paying even a little attention should know what that is code for.
In a lot of ways, I feel like I am one of the few Black people who is not obsessed with beige children. I refuse to revel in the anti-Blackness that privileges lighter skin children with features more closely relating to Whites, or Asians or Native Americans. To quote the great intellectual bell hooks, “I am happy to be nappy,” and I love me some dark chocolate skin. I love all of the beautiful colors we come in, as human beings, from albino to pitch black, but I have to be on guard for the privileging of light skin and the anti-Blackness that has us believe that Black looks better when it is more closely related in skin color to White.
Toni Morrison once said that the most vulnerable person in any society is a Black girl child, and that is apparent with the endless criticism of Blue Ivy. It would be one thing if she were a little boy. She would be allowed to not be “pretty” or “beautiful” in a conventional since, but as a girl she not only has to be the right “color,” with the right features, she also has to be “cute.” Given that her mother is Beyonce, someone who is praised for her beauty and idealized for her racially ambiguity, I expect these criticisms of Blue Ivy to continue as she grows and develops.
In a white supremacist like ours, people are always looking for a place to project and display their anti-Blackness. Some people cannot seem to accept that Blue Ivy, at least, is not going to be the person they can do it on.

The Pain Of Being In Love With Someone You Can Never Be With

The Pain Of Being In Love With Someone You Can Never Be With

Love is a tricky thing. It varies in intensity and in the specificity of emotions. It is sometimes the most beautiful thing in the world and, at other times, it’s the most horrid thing we’ve ever come face-to-face with.
It’s odd how one thing could be the cause of so many contrary feelings. But that’s what makes love so beautiful – it’s the closest thing to perfection that exists in the world, the only thing that can easily and comfortably encompass both good and evil, beautiful and ugly.
It’s the closest thing to a flawless whole that man has ever claimed to have been part of.
When we think of love, we think of the happy kind of love, the kind that is the beginning of something beautiful – something that breathes life.
There is, however, another kind of love, a much darker and sadder kind of love. It’s the love one feels when one loves someone he or she can never and will never have.
It’s the kind of love that doesn’t signal the beginning of something beautiful, but rather the end of something that might have been beautiful, but will never amount to anything more than what it is.
Contrary to popular belief or popular wishful thinking, love doesn’t always end happily. It doesn’t always result in the joining of two people, the fusing of two lives into one.
Sometimes, on rare occasions, it results in the wedging apart of the two who love each other the most. You can love someone with all your soul and never get a chance to be with that person. Even worse, you can know that you love him or her, understanding there is no possibility that the two of you will ever be together.
Some people cannot and will not ever end up together, even if they do love each other. It’s a sad truth, but a truth, nonetheless.
The fact is, love is not enough. All those fairytales, all those stories and movies you’ve heard and watched growing up, lied to you. Love is never enough because love is not rational.
You hear that love is irrational all the time, yet you still hear the same people saying that love is enough to keep two people together.
Unfortunately, we live in a world governed by rationality, and while love may be irrational, and we may manage to make it work for some time, the real world always catches up with us and our irrational illusions dissipate into thin air.
Then we are left with reality and reality doesn’t always reason the way lovers do.
Some people don’t work out together. They have habits or beliefs that make it impossible to co-habitate with the person they love. There isn’t a couple out there that loves every little thing about one another.
Sure, they may find certain quirks cute or unique, but they don’t love them; they simply accept them. There are some people who have such habits, tendencies, or thinking patterns that really do make them incompatible with the other person.
The two may love each other fully, because remember, love isn’t rational, yet not be able to live and deal with each other forever. This is why relationships require compromise.
You’re not going to love everything about the person you are with, but you love enough about him or her to live with the things you don’t love. Not all people are willing to, or even able to, compromise. Sometimes it just doesn’t work, regardless of what our emotions tell us.
Compromising, of course, is a choice. You either choose to make it work or you choose not to. I believe this fully. As long as something doesn’t go against your nature, over time you can make it work. But there are still some cases when compromising isn’t enough.
Sometimes there are other reasons two people cannot and will not ever be together. In fact, this is usually the deciding factor of whether or not two lovers will be capable of spending their lives together: if they are able to forgive and forget.
Because love is as intense an emotion as one gets, it occasionally leads us to make poor choices – choices that are hurtful to the ones we love.
They may be poor calls of judgment, lies we told or things we said. When it comes to love, our pasts haunt us. We move from relationship to relationship, hauling all that luggage we managed to accumulate in our previous relationship.
Because lovers who can’t work together don’t like to accept this fact, they have a tendency of breaking up and getting back together repeatedly.
Each time they take a break from each other, they come back and try to start fresh. But the problem is, they’re still carrying all that luggage. And sooner or later, they start to unpack. All the demons come out.
When love scars, it cuts deep. The pain isn’t easily forgotten and usually cannot be willfully forgotten. When you hurt the woman you love enough, she won’t come back to you. And because you still love her, you wouldn’t take her back even if she asked you to.
You don’t trust yourself not to hurt her again and even if you did, she wouldn’t trust you not to hurt her again. Relationships are built on trust and you shattered her trust.
Chances are, you both have bruises that have never fully healed and likely will never fully heal. And that’s just something you decided that you’ll have to live with. Why?
Because you really don’t have any other options. You just hope that the two of you find others to love so you can think about each other less and so you don’t have to worry about her happiness anymore.
You wait in hopes that new love can take the place of the old — which it can. But that doesn’t mean you will ever stop loving each other. Some people will love each other until the day they die, spending the majority of their lives apart. And so is the darker side of love.

Apple to Add Gold to iPad Lineup?

Ipad_gold

Apple's love affair with gold is about to extend to the iPad, as the company is planning to introduce the color as a new option in an effort to boost lagging tablet sales.
Gold-colored backings for 9.7-inch iPads are set to be released sometime in October, according to Bloomberg. A gold iPad would join other products that have sported the metal (or at least the color), including the iPhone 5S and the new Apple Watch, which will be available in actual 18-karat gold.
For an idea of what a gold iPad might look like, Stuart Hughes, a luxury gadget designer, made a solid gold and diamond-encrusted iPad back in 2010.
Apple has struggled to sustain iPad sales, which have fallen in recent quarters, and declined in year-over-year comparisons. Analysts such as Gartner are projecting the global tablet market to continue to grow, albeit at a slower pace.
