      @spacekatgal a few years ago I had a dream I was flying down the highway on a motorcycle. I woke up feeling exhilarated, full of adrenaline. Decided at that moment to never ride on a motorcycle, bc I would love it too much & never manage to be responsible.

        @kohlmannj yup. Amazing how a device many (you too?) consider too simple and “on rails”, the use cases and priorities are so broad that experiences are quite different.

          @kohlmannj as someone who came from a 3, I couldn’t use a Mini pre-retina. Staring at text that close for hours with the obvious pixelation is terrible. I found substantial eye strain compared to retina. Plus, reading comics on retina is awesome.

                  @swilliams it was unreal. Mostly because the employee looked at me helplessly as if to say, “Holy shit I can’t hear this one more time I wish someone would fucking care at all.”

                    @swilliams when W7 was coming out Dell came to my campus to push it. I went and at the end sales guy asked what we want. My response was, “Please make a light weight 13” sub 4lbs at that size is the future.” He said they knew that and were working on it.

                          @bradchoate there have been recent reports that this is not the case and actually iPhones locally cache it as an iMessage account. Solution is doing both what you said and having contacts delete all messages they have with you. @swilliams

                            @mps the rationale really is you grew up with them and like them and think it’s ok. Bad things happen with guns but they happen abstractly to other people for whatever reasons you think assure you and your family the good w/o big chance of bad @spacekatgal

                              @mps fwiw we can agree to disagree amicably on guns, but I think we need to be clear when we’re simply ok with it and think it’s worth the costs rather than discuss straw man situations that don’t even hold up. @spacekatgal

                                  @mps you’re response is to be a part of a vicious positive feedback loop rather than interrogate and challenge it. This suggests your rationale is actually straightforward support, these other ideas are just bad excuses for that. @spacekatgal

                                    @mps to say it’s acceptable to be in an environment where all toddlers/kids need to learn about gun safety is to concede the point before we’ve started. @spacekatgal
