The one where +Alex Dobie and I get mesmerized by Taipei tech shopping.
 
Taipei's Guanghua markets — and its newly-opened Syntrend mall — offer up a frenetic tech-buying experience unlike any other. More than most cities, Taipei is big on technology. The Taiwanese capital is home to major global tech brands like ASUS and D-Link, with the likes of Acer, HTC and… #android
Taipei's Guanghua markets — and its newly-opened Syntrend mall — offer up a frenetic tech-buying experience unlike any other. More than most cities, Taipei is big on technology. The Taiwanese capital is home to major global tech brands like ASUS and D-Link, with the likes of Acer, HTC and Foxconn headquartered close by in neighboring New Taipei City. It's also home to a big...

We're approaching 60 new posts today on Windows Central. Mostly from E3. I'm exhausted.

And I'm not even there.

Finger keeps hovering. I'm literally torn between online or going to collect in store.

I propose a WWDC drinking game.

So far I've got:

Magical
The way only Apple can
It just works
We're really proud of "xxx"
We can't wait to show it to you
One more thing.

Any more buzzwords and cliches that would work? I think we could get really drunk really quick.

I'm not saying there might not be some good stuff in there. But Apple keynotes are basically just ridiculous.

"Google"
"Android"

Those two words always seem to find their way into any Apple presentation.

Apparently Apple won't pay artists royalties for streaming their music during the 3 month Apple music trial?

Taylor Swift's gonna love that.

There's a bit of a witch hunt lately against data-driven services. But it wasn't long ago that the torch-bearers were singing a different tune. Today Apple executives will take the stage at the keynote address for the Worldwide developer conference. WWDC. I'll be watching.

Waze - the user-data-driven nav aid - is my favorite app. So far as I'm aware, it's the best example of a corporation using my (and everyone else's) data for a purpose I like. It has access to everything on my phone, but it's owned by Google - and Google already has access to everything on my phone. They need it to provide the syncing and backup service I also find incredibly useful.
I recently upgraded my phone and got the "permission" pop-up for the latest version of Twitter. I've never tweeted a thing, but I used it every day for following news that interested me. For some reason it wants access to my contact list. I now don't have Twitter on my phone, because I don't trust Twitter with my contacts list. There's nothing I do with Twitter that could possibly warrant it having access to my contacts.
Two ends of the spectrum. Give me something I consider valuable enough, and I'll give you access to my info. Google does, Twitter doesn't. I'm looking forward to Android M, where I can selectively turn off permissions for apps. I'd love to have Twitter back, as long as I can tell it my contacts are not part of the deal.

Time to leave this crazy, wonderful place behind.

Although I'm not going to miss the heat and humidity one little bit.
