    .@ablaze but yea, this is what we expect from Apple for an iPad launch, not from a military for a rocket launch.

      @ablaze yea, but incredibly smart. They control the best content available to journalists means they drive coverage to best reflect the image they want. Most journalists won’t do the digging if it looks like someone else has.

        @ablaze nice piece just now on IDF use of social media.

          When you play letterpress, do you make the best word if it improves your position or do you play for the quick 13-12 win?

            Remember when we used to mock the computer UIs in movies because they beeped, clicked, chirped, and whirred audibly with every user action? Not so funny anymore, now that we're all using Tweetbot and playing Letterpress, huh?

              @ablaze the reviews are pretty solid

                @harryslotwiner what I think you meant was, get rid of the dark colored tiles and just have red and blue. The problem is figuring out how not to use the protected (dark red) tiles, since they won’t change color if you use them in a word.

                  @harryslotwiner I think we’re misunderstanding each other. I thought you meant “the dark red and dark blue tiles should be one color,” like orange. The problem I saw is that they count toward your score (13-12).

                    @jordan it’s over the line, which makes it ineffective with most voters. By contrast, this is a great ad: http://m.youtube.com/watch?v=vSLoTJySZmg

                      @harryslotwiner no, because they count toward your score.

                        @jimray @jordan Exactly. Punctuation-in-quote is ambiguous and contradicts the literal meaning of quotes.

                          .@kivus it’s typical big government over-regulation of access tokens…

                            Under President Obama, the price of the best Twitter clients has risen to $20. Can we afford 4 more years of this??

                              I saw the octal parsing right away, but the omitted part thing is weird.

                                @ablaze I wasn't trying to be obstinate; I just wanted to understand the reasoning (price, physical buttons) that were important to you. I trust your opinions, but I value your reasoning even more.

                                  @ablaze dumb question, but can’t you turn off the backlighting?

                                    @ablaze which would you buy right now if you didn’t have one?
