The swoopy zoomy animations and retina searing colours in iOS 7 make so much more sense when you're tripping on acid.

You, Sir Jonathan Ive are a true design genius, and I tip my hat to you!

2014: Worst Year Ever

Too many people have died or had major health problems to mention, everybody seems to be struggling to hold on to what they have. I'm personally facing the threat of eviction, and consequently losing everything I own because I can't afford even a modest rental home on the outskirts of town.

And it's still not over. Hopefully 2015 will be better for those of us who manage to survive until then...

A group of druggie meth users living in my grandmothers house illegally did this to her toilet.   Police in Trinidad Colorado did nothing absolutely nothing because the courts there are also druggies.   I HOPE SO MUCH THEY CAUGHT A DISEASE FROM THERE FILTH.   I have no idea which one of us is crazy enough to clean the mess up in the bathroom like this!

Did Google buy Sparrow out of spite?

It's nearly 2 years now since Google bought the makers of Sparrow, my favorite desktop email client.

I was expecting great things: At the time, Google's iOS Gmail client was a weird hybrid html/native glom thing, while Sparrow on iOS was a clearly laid out and extremely snappy native iOS app. It seemed obvious that Google would rework iOS Sparrow's UI and release it as the official GMail iOS app. I even secretly hoped Google might start work on an official desktop gmail client based on (OS X) Sparrow's UI.

Since then, apart from there being no more updates to Sparrow, nothing has changed. No official desktop clients, and GMail on iOS still sucks balls. 

Which leads me to ask why the hell they bought Sparrow in the first place. Was it just to ensure that I have to suffer through Google's own terrible UIs?

Now is a great time to stock up on disposable burner prepaid phones from The Warehouse. 

This $9 2degrees Prepaid SIM & Samsung 1205T bundle is discounted from $19, making them the perfect disposable phone that you can snap in half and throw into a river after using for one call.

Conservatives are funny.

Apparently a human being's right to life needs protecting from the moment of conception right up until the point of birth, where someone has to actually contribute something in order to sustain their life, at which point they're on their own.

Hey Zoomy, KiwiBank, 2degrees, TradeMe etc. I want to love your mobile apps but you use butt-ugly titling fonts everywhere, even for showing screeds of text.

You hurt my eyes with your thoughtless amateur interface typography! 😫

This reminds me of watching those videos where "terrorists" chop people's heads off.

They wear uniforms and publicly murder people to make an example of them as well.

This is what happens when you assert your rights to the police. You have been warned.

Nice place, could pop out and watch auto-racing at the Hampton Downs racetrack during one of my many escapades. Security is a little on the low side though, was always worried an outsider might take stuff out of my cell while I was out.

Too bloody cold. Staff are much less corrupt than in Auckland. All in all, my stay was miserable.

Boring! Being so far off the beaten track its hard to get all the comforts of home. The staff do their very best to help, but nothing can make up for the isolation, not even a hike in the surrounding bush.

Easily the best correctional facility in Auckland. Had great fun networking with others in my line of work. Will definitely be staying again.
