"I’m pro-consumer, not pro-Apple. That said, nothing urges me to rise to the company’s defense like hearing somebody claim that Apple has stopped inventing, stopped innovating, stopped improving. That’s hogwash."  --- +Andy Ihnatko 
 
My writeup of today's Apple event. Much more excited about the 5S than I thought I would be. They're using that A7 processor to get results way more important than just strong benchmark numbers.

Loved the breakdown of how the photo processing works, compared to Android. I wasn't too excited about 5s, but am now thinking it might be upgrade time (from 4s) after all.

The man makes several, excellent points. #Apple  learned a long time ago that designing a product's complete experience is the key to excellence - not just cramming a bunch of high-spec stuff together and calling it done. If Android phones are going to compete with the iPhone on this level, these are the lessons that they need to learn.

This is a bit old (from Fall, 2012), yet still spot-on.

You may finally be able to read your ebook during takeoff! The FAA is likely to approve new gadget policies in September, but not cell phone use: http://j.mp/14b0XWk

Google+ Is Now the #2 Largest Social Network In The World
A recent report by Global Web Index has revealed that +Google+  has now surpassed Twitter in active users!

If anyone has yet to see the value in Google+ as a platform to build an audience for their business or brand, they seriously need to re-think some things.

"An iPhone's not just an iPhone, no more than a sandbox is a bunch of lumber nailed together as a square. It's what's inside, and how you interact with it, that counts. iPhones are just an iOS delivery system."  ---Brian Barrett on Gizmodo

Indeed. The weird thing is that every product category (cars, wines, tools, etc.) spans the range from cheap to expensive, crap to awesome. But these people fixate on price differences in computers, as if they're all created equally and should all be the same price (as cheap as possible).

Thanks to +The Verge for continuing to publish articles, even if they "offend" the followers of certain OS-based religions :D  I swear, every time they mention any +Apple Inc.  product, or that Android might not be the Second Coming, they get jumped on like a Catholic getting beat up by a bunch of Southern Baptists...

The #NTTA is mind-bogglingly inept at clearing wrecks on the Dallas North Tollway. I spent an hour getting from Park Blvd. to Trinity Mills on the southbound tollway this morning. But do they still charge me to drive on their badly-managed parking lot ? Oh yeah...

Aww, sad to hear. I have a post from 2011 about the invention of cut and paste, which features an image of one of Engelbart's early wooden mice:

Awesome – but where can they air a four minute commercial? Web only I guess.

Great to see Shatner doing the Bilbo song.
