Great essay that I completely agree with. I'm getting so weary of reading pieces from both Apple and Google zealots that smear the "other side".

The good news is that I think most people just don't care.
The conflict between Apple and Google — and their respective audiences — is one of the most inane and pointless narrative threads in the technology industry. And, following I/O, it's at a disappointing height. Google has been vilified as a thief and a purveyor of less-than-stellar business practices. Accusations frequently rain down upon the Mountain View giant for its habit of culling services, whilst the company's executives speak of balance ...

Good essay.

I've been a big fan of apple for years because they had a design philosophy that was just better, and they executed better. But, I've looked Googles services since they launched search.

Lately I found myself like the author, using Google services on an Apple device. But, when it came time to replace my iPhone, I went with Android because it was executing better.

I bought 5 quick pick random megamillions tickets yesterday. Out of the 30 numbers on the ticket, i had only one match. This close to being the biggest loser of the night.

I decided to start doing some minimal shoe running this year. I spent the last two weeks working on my form to shorten my stride and took the first full run today in a pair of Nike Frees; I'll do one run a week for this month to see how it goes. Today was fine.

About one year later = suspected stress fracture in foot. Shoes to be donated shortly...

[edit] Strike that: turns out to be a Morton's Neuroma. Though the x-ray showed a healed stress fracture; at some point I had one. Two more weeks off running and then I should be good to go.

Is there anybody who has tried Mint for personal finance? Love it, hate it, like it?

It's handy for checking my balance and transactions, but that's it. When I've tried it before I four it unable to do more advanced functions like budget forecasting and checkbook balancing.

Cars with small leaks seems to be a plague this week - the Forester yesterday, the Highlander today. Bonus, though: Toyota dealer is letting us use a Prius for free while they keep the Highlander and wait for the parts to arrive tomorrow. It's a nice little car.

That's cool, my wife is interested in the Prius V because of the wagon back. Having driven my mother-in-law's Prius, I'm cool with that. It's a nice car.

Hey, I know that tomorrow I will be in the home area of the team that will win the Super Bowl. That feels pretty decent.

Nope, I'm in Jersey and flying home to Boston tomorrow afternoon. So, either way, I'm in the home of the SB champs tomorrow.
