    I mean, come on. Someone sends you a message, you send one back. Rinse, repeat. It's not that hard. Throw things away, put some other ones over here for later. The world's full of tough problems. This isn't one of them.

      That might sound dickish, but the major problem with email isn't email. It's how people think about email. And if a product helps, great. But it's about thinking.

        I'd never take anything away from someone who ships a product. But as a user, I feel like if you haven't figured out how to manage email, you might just want to give up. It's like being in a band when you're 50, convinced you're gonna get signed soon.

          If you’re asking me to create something for you, don’t tell me how long you think it should take. You’ll get it when it’s done. That’s why you’re not doing it yourself. Because you can’t. Hence the inability to accurately estimate time to completion.

            I was going to complain about something but then my baby fell asleep on my shoulder and what was I saying again? I like being a dad way more than I'd even expected.

              If there’s anything better than coming home from a business trip to your loving wife, beautiful daughter, and faithful bourbon, I’m sure I don’t know what it is.

                I love these financial publications all telling Apple how to spend its money, and which acquisitions to make. I’m pretty sure they know better than you do, morons, considering you bet against them for the better part of a decade.

                  Millions of people are opening iOS devices today and downloading apps. And the *only* place to do this works intermittently, breaks often, and is full of questionable UI decisions. That is all. Back to your regularly scheduled Christmas-ing. :)

                    No more bashing Android’s UX and graphical performance until the iOS App Store (arguably the most important part of the platform) ceases to be a festering pile of barely usable shit.

                      I always wondered about the word “Xmas”, assuming it was some lazy 20th cent. thing: “The ‘X’ comes from the Greek letter Chi, which is the first letter of the Greek word Χριστός, translated as ‘Christ’.” Hmm. WIKIPEDIA TO ALL AND TO ALL A GOOD NIGHT

                        I was fortunate enough to be asked on the CMD+SPACE podcast by @imyke. You can hear that here. http://www.70decibels.com/cmdspace/2012/12/19/021-not-wasting-time-with-matthew-panzarino.html

                            Well, power's out completely already. I'm going radio silent to preserve batteries. SO glad those adapters didn't ship with the new iPhones.

                                  People who don’t understand sarcasm shouldn’t be allowed online. Or on Earth for that matter.
