The more I think about it, the more I hope Apple doesn't go Samsung crazy on gimmicky new features going forward.  iOS is still eminently productive and usable.  Keep evolving at this point Apple peoples--you already sparked the revolution, now just stay ahead of everyone. :)

I'm fine with the gimmicks in the Samsung to be perfectly honest.  I think its a great phone for my personal needs, and the Android store is catching up to the Apple Store.  That being said, I also have an iPad, and it is by far the industry leader in its segment.

ok, so chrome, right?  i've been forcing myself to use chrome on all devices the past two weeks.  it's ok--the syncing is pretty advanced when it works.  however, why do i always have to re-login to my email account and other accounts?  i click the "stay logged in button" and nothing stays logged in.  very freaking annoying.  i can't find a setting that would mess this up--cookies enabled, etc.  is this to be expected in chrome?  if so, buh-bye. :)

He probably has one for development testing and still has no taste and doesn't see its superiority.

Google+ has improved--especially the mobile experience.  Nicely done.

OMFG i was expecting to be underwhelmed with Lion. i'm, so far, overwhelmed.

i like where lion has headed. this feel is great. it's like the best of iOS combined with the best of Mac OS X. this is a smart move.

i always have contended, at least IMO, that the trackpad gestures on the mac are lamentably under-adored. they've taken the trackpad to the next level even. i don't know if most people will see or appreciate it, but i sure do because i love the trackpad.

also, a subtlety i've typing is autocorrecting like my iPhone. i love the iPhone autocorrection and always wanted it on my mac. it corrects my common typos as i'm typing!!!!

the contact list is gorgeous like the iPad now and iCal is updated to be even more beautiful. i can't believe it. every time i think apple is going to certainly drop the ball, they stun me with revolutionary improvements.

i'm loving lion so far and i thought i wouldn't. :)

Yay! One small barrier of interface idiocy at a time!

has been very reliable and the food is tasty! great noodles (my fave is roast pork), delicious crispy wontons, decent egg rolls. i think this is among the best "fast food" style chinese food in the west suburbs. just discovered this place about 3 months ago and have ordered about 5 or 6 times now. each time was really good. i know this is "made for americans" chinese food, so take this review more from that category.
