The ending to the original was just disappointing. Batman always wins, because he's Batman. (Besides, you can't let Vader win...he's the bad guy!)

"An iPhone's not just an iPhone, no more than a sandbox is a bunch of lumber nailed together as a square. It's what's inside, and how you interact with it, that counts. iPhones are just an iOS delivery system."  ---Brian Barrett on Gizmodo

Indeed. The weird thing is that every product category (cars, wines, tools, etc.) spans the range from cheap to expensive, crap to awesome. But these people fixate on price differences in computers, as if they're all created equally and should all be the same price (as cheap as possible).

The man makes several, excellent points. #Apple  learned a long time ago that designing a product's complete experience is the key to excellence - not just cramming a bunch of high-spec stuff together and calling it done. If Android phones are going to compete with the iPhone on this level, these are the lessons that they need to learn.
Motorola’s top engineer called the Moto X the most advanced phone on the market and criticized the Galaxy S4 for not being true 1080p and for its cheap plastic design.

The #NTTA is mind-bogglingly inept at clearing wrecks on the Dallas North Tollway. I spent an hour getting from Park Blvd. to Trinity Mills on the southbound tollway this morning. But do they still charge me to drive on their badly-managed parking lot ? Oh yeah...

Aww, sad to hear. I have a post from 2011 about the invention of cut and paste, which features an image of one of Engelbart's early wooden mice:

Yeah, unfortunately they "went out of business" last month. Supposedly they'll fold their blog into the Engadget blog, but I'm seeing far fewer Mac-related postings over there :/

Join the Battle for Net Neutrality #InternetSlowdown
http://www.adafruit.com/blog/2014/09/10/join-the-battle-for-net-neutrality-internetslowdown/

Cable companies want to slow down (and break!) your favorite sites, for profit. To fight back, let’s cover the web with symbolic “loading” icons, to remind everyone what an Internet without net neutrality would look like, and drive record numbers of emails and calls to lawmakers.

"I’m pro-consumer, not pro-Apple. That said, nothing urges me to rise to the company’s defense like hearing somebody claim that Apple has stopped inventing, stopped innovating, stopped improving. That’s hogwash."  --- +Andy Ihnatko 
 
My writeup of today's Apple event. Much more excited about the 5S than I thought I would be. They're using that A7 processor to get results way more important than just strong benchmark numbers.

Loved the breakdown of how the photo processing works, compared to Android. I wasn't too excited about 5s, but am now thinking it might be upgrade time (from 4s) after all.

Thanks to +The Verge for continuing to publish articles, even if they "offend" the followers of certain OS-based religions :D  I swear, every time they mention any +Apple Inc.  product, or that Android might not be the Second Coming, they get jumped on like a Catholic getting beat up by a bunch of Southern Baptists...
