I love this!

This is now one of my favorite sites for humor - http://scoopertino.com/
I had seen their Apple Water ad (http://scoopertino.com/apple-blasts-into-supermarkets-with-revolutionary-apple-water/) a while back and loved it, but didn't realize that the whole site was dedicated to making fun of Apple. Yes, I'm an 'all things mobile' nerd.

Good post complimenting Peoplefluent (where I work) at the Wisdom Conference last week! :-)  
Peoplefluent held its annual Wisdom Conference in Orlando last week. They announced Industry Veteran Jeff Carr as their new CEO and put on a very solid event.

Introduction
I'm a Web/UI developer and designer who loves to be creative and enjoys tech-talk.  I also love learning about  new technology for tablets, mobile phones, and, of course, the Web, reading everything I can get my hands on (plus some science fiction and fantasy for fun). I'm a connoisseur of good beer, good UI design and good apps.
