    IMHO, the most nerve-wracking kind of code to ship: 1) is billing related 2) sends email 3) manages a complex state machine (esp. when state machine is related to #1 and #2) This week we shipped a bunch of code that does all of the above. Whew.

      @joehewitt it felt very light to me, mainly because I expected it to be heavier based on its size. It feels less dense to me than an iPhone 5.

        @marco a Nano needing a Mac or PC and a Touch not is such a major difference.

          @benbrooks I received my Hidden Radio replacement. In fact I received two of them for some odd reason… :-/ I'll let you know if the new one(s) work any better than my turns-off-in-104-sec one.

            Giving a talk at a conference should be a show. Make it interesting. Teach something. Entertain. Don't just regurgitate your pitch.

              @mrgan I think it’s likely. Mainly because of the price differential. If Apple announced some keyboard cover (probably only for the standardized iPad), then game over.

                Held my iPhone OG for a bit last night. That thing has the best in-hand feel of any iPhone.

                  @andrewaburger it’s the headphone jack on the bottom that’s changing me.

                    I now stick my iPhone into my pocket upside down. It felt so weird when this would happen accidentally with the iPhone 4, but with the 5 I'm beginning to realize it's a better orientation for pocket-to-hand.

                      @yaypie because it’s too mushy. But maybe I’ll try turning it on again and see it I can handle it.

                        Every time I plug in a micro-USB device, I’m glad Apple didn’t replace the 30-pin connector with micro-USB.

                          @yaypie Source Code Pro is too wide and looks blurry, which might be because I have font smoothing turned off in OS X.

                            I really like how all content on ADN is public, and you have to pay money if you want to post. This seems like a great model for other services too… and the freely accessible content keeps with the spirit of the Internet.

                              @reneritchie @benbrooks I thought the same thing while watching it. The ad is perfectly geared towards kids.

                                I tried Adobe's Source Code Pro font for ~10 seconds, then quickly switched back to Inconsolata, which I feel is the best coding font. It too is open source: http://www.levien.com/type/myfonts/inconsolata.html

                                  @voidfiles At this point, I'm not even sure if I'd be surprised to see a Starbucks nested within another Starbucks.

                                    @voidfiles I wonder if they’ll out compete each other

                                      A share of $AAPL at $AMZN’s P/E would be: $13,426.23

                                        @clyde @marco it’s much more noticeable on the 5.
