    @duerig “We crave confirmation, but we need to be challenged.” Love that!

      @danv2 It could be forgiven if Apple hadn’t already hit a monster home run with the iPod, or if Apple hadn’t learned many lessons with the Motorola Rockr. But many observers were just unable to see the new Apple for what it was.

        @danv2 My favorite takedown of the iPhone gave me the name for my blog: “The iPhone is nothing more than a luxury bauble that will appeal to a few gadget freaks. In terms of its impact on the industry, the iPhone is less relevant.” http://luxurybauble.com

          @mdhughes That’s the Bible Belt for you.

            Shout out to @thedan84. He's learning #Swift by building @fireapp in it, a new client for Alpha/ADN. His enthusiasm and transparency may also have inspired me to fiddle with Rapport code last night… :-)

              @cgiffard That must have been quite the scene.

                Overheard: “I wonder if I approached him with harsh music if he'd contribute distorted screaming or something?”

                    Kudos to James Fallows for his tenacious Chickenhawk Chronicles. The A-10 saga truly is a microcosm of the larger problems in America’s defense establishment. http://snipurl.com/29s2ajy

                      @danv2 It’s interesting the contortions people go through to convince themselves that what they’re dong is somehow noble.

                        @danv2 “‘Brands sponsor it,’ Sawicki said. ‘But Machiavelli sponsored most of the great art of the Middle Ages.’” Hah hah hah. NO.

                          @mdhughes There’s an article in there somewhere, I just know it.

                            @holbrook @laurafisher @longstride Got Zingerman’s yesterday afternoon. First food I had all day after waking at 4 am California time. Epic sandwich. Loved it!

                              @mdhughes Cool. Thanks for the info. Gonna have to give it a look-see when I next get the urge to spend at DriveThru.

                                @mdhughes Hmm… sounds interesting. I ran 1ed Stormbringer back in the day, and the magic was always a blast. I’d be interested in your review when you’ve given it a full read.

                                  @mdhughes Beyond the editing, what do you think of BRP Magic World? Any reason not to just use RQ instead?
