+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.

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.

"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."
