    @jws Hmm. Well, a mountain of cash will keep the lights on, but it can't stop an exodus. But that kind of failure can't be stopped, really. MySpace 2.0.

      I'm wondering if any web services are "too big to fail." As in, will someone bail out Twitter if their stock drops too low? Hollywood has a lot invested in hashtags at this point, for example.

        Twitter's timeline will soon show tweets out of order - http://www.theverge.com/2016/2/5/10925728/twitter-timeline-tweets-out-of-order I'll bet third-party clients will be exempt from this.

          Why is everyone saying Twitter is dead today? This is, what … the 4th time in the last 12 months? :/

            Proven - http://patrickrhone.com/2016/02/04/proven/ This is how I've come to approach much of technology.

                @rabryst I'm only two. Gotta find that other sheet.

                  Listed our iPad on eBay. Planning to buy one, possibly two Kindles with the proceeds.

                    @ferebee I'd worry less about those things than a potential software update that sends the stroller rolling into traffic. I don't trust people to write bug-free software.

                      Of all the technologies I’ve used, none have been so flaky as the ones that describe themselves as “streaming.”

                        @jws Weird. My wife talked to support. They say it depends on stock allocations in your nearest warehouse. He bumped our shipping to 1-day for free (but it's still going to take 5 days) and gave us an extra month of Prime.

                          @jws It probably is USPS's fault, though the shipping estimate of 5 days came up during the checkout process. Whatever it is, Amazon is aware of it.

                            Order something with Amazon Prime > choose free 2-day shipping > your order will arrive in 5 days. I’m bad at math, but that seems off.
