USAIR...old school and not in a good way
USAIR ("now part of the new American Airlines") is going to have to grow up or someday they'll fail. I always try to fly Southwest Airlines because they never have change fees and the customer service people and in fact all their staff are, in my experience...

Definitions of seed funding: a perspective beyond software
The inimitable Jason Calacanis has written a blog post called "Official Definitions of Seed, Series A, and Series B Rounds". I always enjoy Jason's posts and he holds a special place in my heart for declaring a war against angel groups that charge startups ...

Sounds fake and insincere. What he doesn't realize is that he's effectively an ISIS sympathizer.

I gave up my BlackBerry Q10 a few months ago. The keyboard started double typing, producing multiple letters for certain keystrokes. I replaced the keyboard myself and was very proud of the mixed black and white look I created by installing a white keyboard...

Key feature in Android is missing. Apple's iOS has it. I plan to buy an iPhone 6. At that point my Moto X goes up for sale, though I love all its other features

Will the last BlackBerry user please turn out the lights?
I just couldn't take it anymore. After replacing my keyboard on my Blackberry Q10, the headphone jack failed. I'm done.

things I miss now that I've turned off my BlackBerry
I recently switched to Android (Moto X) from BlackBerry (Q10). I'd used a Nexus 4 for a while as a back-up phone so nothing was new to me but I'd always also used a BlackBerry. Now I'm sensibly down to just one phone. I don't regret the consolidation but he...
