You have to wonder if this wasn't the plan since the beginning.

I mean, not Taylor Swift and all; that was obviously sheer luck. But something along the lines of "hey, worst case scenario, by the time it blows up we'd have had massive media exposure, and upon reverting we'll enjoy another few weeks of free media".

Sad to have missed them in Austin. And the ugly side of dealing with record labels.
Their Times Square metal performance went viral, and a trio of 11- and 12-year-olds were signed to a $1.8 million record deal. Then they realized what the industry was all about.

Still saddened and shocked by the tragic death of David Carr. And incredible that it happened just a few hours after this great interview with Snowden, Laura Poitras and Glenn Greenwald. At least we get to enjoy his wit and greatness one last time.

Sometimes life is a joke. RIP.

ps: if you haven't yet seen CitizenFour, you have no idea what you're missing.
When whistleblower Edward Snowden exposed the National Security Agency’s worldwide electronic surveillance program, it was to Oscar–nominated documentary filmmaker Laura Poitras and Pulitzer Prize–winning journalist and author Glenn Greenwald. Don’t miss this special opportunity to hear the director of “Citizenfour” – the film nominated for the Academy Award for Best Documentary — and the first journalist to write about Snowden’s revelations, ta...

My initial thoughts on the Apple Watch:

1. it's slow
2. it's a remote control for apps
3. 97% of apps are totally useless

As a developer, it's an invitation for experimentation.

As a user, it's an invitation for patience, to find the 3% that doesn't suck.

For those that still didn't understand what's happening here, let's put the discussion about national security in... penis terms.

The 12'' is exactly what I was hoping for. But Core M, really? meh. With a fanless CPU, I bet it'll throttle like crazy under heavy use.
