I feel that the tech industry is having the same issue that I find annoying about the movie industry.  Everything is either remakes, sequels, or childhood things made edgier.  There isn't anything really new being done because the old stuff is seen as safe.  I see this as just a rehash of someones original idea of putting a calculator on a watch thirty years ago.  It just seems like a distraction for maybe a small short term gain at the expense of some real innovative ideas.

Biggest annoyance about google+ is in viewing images.  In most situations you click to open the image and if you click off the image it goes back to where it was.  In Google+ to kill the lightbox you have to click a close button.  /end rant

What I like about companies who recruit and advertise using sexism: it lets me know where I and my friends don't want to work. Here's my CNN.com op-ed.
Gina Trapani says the technology companies that promote a culture of frat house fun will lose out in attracting the smartest people.

On a whim I did a little Pintrest experiment today. Posted two movie quote images. One from "Miss Congeniality" and the other from "Top Secret!". In about an hour the "Miss Congeniality" image received 32 likes and 146 repins. The "Top Secret!" image received zilch, nada, bupkis.
