        @sn0man No, but we did get feedback from some women who listen.

          @sn0man I don’t think any of my coworkers listen. Haven’t heard any comments.

            Looking for a discount on some Mac apps? Acorn is on crazy once-in-a-lifetime sale of only $15. I use this app every day. http://flyingmeat.com/ …and Black Ink is updated to version 1.6, only $10 now. http://red-sweater.com/

              @manton …and would it have been a solid foundation for a phone/tablet OS?
              siracusa
                @manton I think it was a bad plan, a half solution. A great execution could have shipped, but it wouldn't have been a product that could carry Apple forward very far.

                    I hope next year Apple releases an iPhone app that lets you scratch off a virtual lottery ticket to see if you won a WWDC pass. *scratch scratch* Apple… *scratch scratch* Apple! *scratch scratch* Ohhh… Android. *sadtrombone.wav*

                          Anything that’s in the world when you’re born is normal and ordinary. Anything that’s invented between when you’re 15 and 35 is new and exciting and revolutionary. Anything invented after you’re 35 gets bought by an advertising company.

                                @davidchambers That’s synthesizing the name of an object attribute/function, not a variable, no? (Also, it’s not Perl.)

                                  @wedge @natesm It eventually prompted again and the update worked.

                                    @wedge @natesm How can a force an update? It tried to update this morning and failed with an error. I quit and relaunched and it didn’t offer to retry.
