Give me a good punchline and I might try to fit it in next year!  I'll even let you eat them if you come work here :)

Weird how Google Search has a share box at the top right corner that doesn't let you share the current search results.

"The store was removed because Apple rejected any updates which included it, period. They also rejected any updates which stated that Apple required its removal, or indeed any mention of ‘compliance with App Store guidelines’. It was further rejected for the cardinal sin of allowing users to create a Kobo account within the app. Then it was rejected for providing a link to let users create an account outside the app. Then it was rejected for simply mentioning that it was possible to sign up, with no direction on where or how one could do that. Then it was rejected for making any mention of the Kobo website. Then for any mention of ‘our website’ at all, in any language. We additionally cannot make any assertions that Kobo provides content for sale, however obliquely."

Yeah, the Apple App Store went from something that could filter out the crap to being something that filtered out good stuff too. I've heard the Android market has been getting better with how it displays rankings and how it tries to hide the crap though. The dev tools are just awful compared to iOS though.

I'm digging the http://www.thegatesnotes.com/ search implementation. Example search query: http://www.thegatesnotes.com/All?search=economy

Whoa.
Randall Munroe originally shared:
 
Do you know why mothers kiss their babies?

Babies crawl around in filthy environments, yet their immune systems aren't fully developed. When a mother kisses her baby, she gets a sample of whatever dirt is on the baby's skin. Her immune system analyzes it for pathogens, and the next day she produces breast milk specially tailored to kill whatever the baby was crawling around in the day before.

+Kevin Matzen sorry about that nonsense on fb. I just assumed after looking the screenshots that Windows Phone gave apps the ability to overlay text on the lock screen (sort of like what the calendar does).

Also, it's interesting that I feel more willing to post this message on Google+ than on Facebook. Facebook has turned the profile into a beautiful scrapbook that I don't want to make dirty with inconsequential posts like this one. Google+ is better than Facebook (in my eyes) for chatter.

I'm guessing Amazon. Seems like a frequent trend on Facebook.

Google+ makes a beautiful icon when you pin it to your taskbar in IE9.

It's fun looking on Twitter where "Windows 8" is and isn't trending. Seattle, yes. San Francisco, no. Denver, yes. New York, no. Also, on Tuesday while "Windows 8" was trending everywhere else, "Win8" was trending in Seattle because so many of us are used to abbreviating it.
