There are countless examples of bad stats in the media. Buy here's a new one that rates up there with the best of them.

TIM COOK: The 'Majority' Of New iPhone Switchers Came From Android.

Well, isn't that both obvious and useless. I could just as well say, "the majority of people who switched to vegetarianism used to eat meat." Or, "the majority of new republican switchers used to be democrats."

Does he think this is an impressive stat that makes Apple seem good?

Ever since Bluetooth headsets came on the market, I've been a big fan of the idea. I use them often enough that I've gone through several pair.

Guy next to me on the train started playing a movie on his laptop. We're not in a quiet car, but still, playing sound through your laptop speakers is pretty rude. I looked over and he's wearing headphones. I said, "You know that's not playing through your headphones?". He traced the cord and found it dangling off the seat, "Oh, I thought it sounded quiet. It's been a long day."

You were the first person that I knew that used BT headphones, especially stereo ones.  I have now been using stereo BT headsets and am on my 5th pair and have separate sets for my walks, workout and plane use. 

I just laugh at the people with cords tethered to their devices when I have a nice cordless pair of earbuds and keep the device in my pocket or on the tray table and can actually sit back without fear of pulling the tablet/phone with me.

The most annoying feature of terminal programs is "scroll to bottom on output ". This shouldn't even be a feature at all. But worse than implementing a bad feature, they insist on turning it on by default.

Ever try to check your scrollback when running ping, or tail -f on a busy file?

Sure, you can press ^s or disable the feature, but your terminal program should be helping, not hindering.

JuiceSSH for android is the latest offender I've encountered... it doesn't have a way to turn that off :(

This was at 7-Eleven. Maybe they should be called Negative Four.

Rice is much easier to clean up than sand.
