"Really awful. That was my first reaction to this PR debacle.
I really don't understand how this could have happened.
Customer focus groups showed massive enthusiasm for Xbox One. And the
Kinect really shines at another level here.

Really, I'm not sure where to go from here. My
only regret is that the hard work that went in on this won't be recognized. But
lots of people will still buy the XBox one. And I hope we get a chance to
learn from these lessons."

*Facebook Rejects Ad Highlighting Zuckerberg Group’s Support For Keystone XL*

"When a subsidiary of Mark Zuckerberg’s new political group started airing ads for expanded oil drilling and the construction of the Keystone XL pipeline, CREDO Action decided to post an ad of their own calling Zuckerberg out — on Facebook.

"This morning, Facebook rejected CREDO’s Facebook ad (pictured right). According to CREDO Action, Facebook initially informed them they rejected the ad because it used Facebook trademarks — specifically, Zuckerberg’s image. Though the image used was fully licensed for creative commons use, a Facebook representative told ThinkProgress that any images of Zuckerberg are off-limits, as he is part of the Facebook brand. The rules governing Facebook brand usage specify “trademarks, names, domain names, logos” but does not explicitly restrict images of Zuckerberg.

"Zuckerberg’s group, FWD.US, is ostensibly focused on passing comprehensive immigration reform, with long-term goals of expanding scientific research and reforming education. However, the group soon started funding ads promoting oil drilling in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge and constructing the Keystone XL pipeline."

It would be really awesome if this went viral all over Facebook and G+.

EDM is bullshit, really.  All music is electronic now, and at least The Band Perry knows how to play real instruments.  What, exactly, do Swedish House Mafia bring to the party?

Whenever we talk at work about "sharding" our data as an approach to database scalability, I always think that we're "sharting" ourselves.  

Yes, I'm 12.

Whether you're completely new to Live, or want a refresher for Live 9, we've created a new series of eight videos that cover the first steps of working with Live. Join Ableton's Jesse Abayomi and learn how to set up Live, work with external instruments and controllers, record MIDI, work with Session and Arrangement view, and finally how to export a finished track.

Watch the first video in the series below, then see the rest at

I have to say that Google+ is the first social thing I've used where the iPhone app is far better than the Web version. Google has quite an impressive team of iOS developers. WHICH IS DELICIOUSLY IRONIC!
