Does anyone watch this and imagine a dystopian future that's a mix of Brazil and Logan's Run?

So I look up and ask, "How many tabs do you have open?" And he replies, "All of them."

I love the physicality of the controls. I'm undoubtedly an outlier, but I much prefer a tactile response to a digital touchscreen in many applications.

Looking forward to checking this out, depending on how many quality titles are available for the subscription fee. Interesting that they started out with an iPhone version, and not a tablet version...

2/3 of their innovations look pretty standard on e-readers, but the subscription model seems pretty cool.  Let's see if they can pull that off...seems like the publishing industry has not been a very good partner with digital delivery mechanisms to date.  There have been successes in technical and training subscription services (like Safari), but they target corporate customers.

It's like they're jealous about all the headlines generated by killing Google Reader, but self-aware enough to know that their time in the spotlight wouldn't happen until the final death throes.

I'm currently driving cross country, and ten miles west of Albuquerque on I-40 my accelerator sank to the floor and quit working. AAA recommended The Garage, and Tim and Carl helped me by towing my car in and getting me a diagnosis and inexpensive fix within a few hours. My mechanic at home makes me wait all day! I'm back on the road now, and so grateful. The folks at the Garage treated me like family.

Passing through town, I ended up here at 6pm. The staff was pleasant at check in, but apparently the manager has a cat who lives here, so if you're severely allergic, keep that in mind. I ended up in one of the "refreshed" rooms. Which means the floors are cheap light-colored fake bamboo that looked filthy as soon as we walked in (it's raining) and the room smells like outgassing plastic. Unfortunately, when they redecorated they failed to do any additional noise-proofing. Which is unfortunate, since I'm on the back side of the building, facing the freeway. Bring earplugs, or ask to be put on the quiet side. For the money (about $90 including tax) I expected more, considering that other motels I've been staying at in this price point provide in-room microwaves, mini-fridges and coffee makers. There's no shampoo or hair dryer, either. I get that Motel 6 is supposed to be bare-bones, but when La Quinta, Super 8, and other chains provide these amenities for the same room rate, I have no idea why I should stay in a Motel 6 again.
