IconProject on iOS has stopped working under iOS 5.1, at least for settings shortcuts. I used to be able to go directly to the Bluetooth settings, which was extremely handy. Now I have to go to Settings, then General, then Bluetooth. Anyone know of a workaround?
iOS: If you're tired of navigating through the Contacts, Settings, or the Browser to perform common actions—like calling someone or turning down the brighness—IconProject will let you create one-tap s...

This usage of "most gifted," meaning "most frequently given," must DIE! In normal English, "most gifted" means having the greatest capabilities. The most gifted performer is the one with the most talent, for example.

Also, some truck manufacturer calls its truck the "most awarded" one in its class. Presumably the company means the truck has won the most awards -- not that it is awarded like a trophy.

Hey, Kottke, the phrase is "gild the lilly," as in cover it with gold, not "guild the lilly," which means, I guess, give it a union card.
You've probably seen the NY Times correction that everyone's talking about. Ok, not everyone, just everyone who works in media. Anyway, here it is: An article on Monday about Jack Robison and Kirsten Lindsmith, two college students with Asperger syndrome who are navigating the perils of an intimate relationship, misidentified the character from the animated children's TV show "My Little Pony" that Ms. Lindsmith said she visualized to cheer herse...

Is it possible that the new version of iTunes is even slower than the last? Seems like it.
