    I’d love to be able to tell 1990’s me, “in 15 years Samsung will sell a WRISTWATCH with 2X the CPU, 2X the RAM, and half the storage of your maxed out Ti PowerBook G4… …and you won’t care.”

        I'm proud of coining "TwInstaFace" but "MyFace" is still my favorite amalganym.

          Once regular cameras get more connected (e.g. auto-post to TwInstaFace) they will be en vogue again and good photos will reign.

            This whole "the iPhone camera makes regular cameras obsolete" meme is for the birds. Blind birds with no taste.

              Nook is tanking Target breach affects ⅓ of US. iBooks sued into oblivion. It's becoming increasingly clear that Jeff Bezos is Lex Luthor.

                  @mrgan We prioritize travel in our budget (e.g. you go out to eat, we save for our next trip). We stay in B&Bs and fly coach; metro instead of taxi. The less you spend, the closer you get to the culture. Not *that* expensive (mortgage, no kids.)

                      I also say "hit" because I don't know if "tap" or "click" is more appropriate. I'm ruining Christmas right now, aren't I?

                        I hit "hide" on >50% of Facebook posts so I don't have to see them later as they fill with comments. FB needs a mark-as-read button.

                            I thought I was done complaining about iOS 7, but… here's a little annotated look at the new iTunes U app. Wasn't iOS 7 supposed to not just drop visual effects, but usher in a new era of "precise typography"? — photos.app.net/15007005/1

                              The not even released yet Moto G from a company Google owns won’t even ship with 4.4. That is the state of Android updates.

                                  Way too often in iOS 7, an animation looks like it’s finished, so I tap an app or button. Turns out I’m about 1/4 second too early, so my tap is for naught. Lost to the ages. Like.... tears in the rain.

                                    Twitter hasn’t stumbled on a profitable business model yet, but they’re asking the public for $1 billion in the hopes that they will. Correct me if I’m oversimplifying.

                                          Since Touch ID uses an electrical current, I wonder if it’ll work with iPhone-friendly winter gloves.
