There seems to be a correlation between income and the kind of smartphone you might use. I'm not sure if it's because Android devices are cheaper and generally have cheaper apps, or because Apple products are a luxury item and/or status symbol, or if there's something else I'm not immediately discerning from these maps.

It's also interesting to check out the rest of the world. Mexico still has a strong Blackberry user base, as do parts of Europe and SE Asia. Singapore even has a good other presence, though I wouldn't know if that is Windows or even Palm.

In my quest to find an appropriate illustration for a truck of discarded Canadian law advance sheets, I came across this. Interesting!

+J.D. Hammond Canada as an alternate history where the American Revolution didn't happen is an interesting idea that might go a fair way towards explaining some of the cultural accents and idiosyncrasies. But the fundamental assumptions and principles upon which Canadian civilisation is built differ substantially from their US counterparts, and the differences permeate just about everything. Too late at night for me to go into more detail, but it's a fertile topic!

Mia's forthcoming ordeal had been plotted in meticulous detail.

The first major trick was to stop eating. Her entire digestive tract would be clogged with a sterilizing putty.

The second trick was to stop breathing. Her lungs would be filled with a sterilizing oxygenating silicone fluid. These two processes would immediately kill off most of the body's internal bacteria.

The third trick was to stop thinking. The blood-brain barrier would be scrubbed free from the capillaries of her skull and the cerebrospinal fluid would be replaced with a sterilizing saline fluid. Profound unconsciousness resulted.

The next trick, quite an advanced one, was to stop being quite so rigorously multicellular.

Sad, but true.
Metro Vancouver has now reached the climax of an orchestrated orgy of rage directed at its transit agency, TransLink. Over 60% of voters have rejected a sales tax increase for urgently needed transit growth, largely due to an effective campaign that made the transit agency's alleged incompetence the issue. There's just one problem. TransLink is (or was) one of North America's most effective transit agencies. Parts of the agency had made mistakes,...

We apparently narrowly missed a shooting this morning. I biked by this intersection about ten minutes before bad things happened, apparently. But +Josh Darland and I are OK.
There are reports of multiple injuries, at least a few deaths and perhaps three shooters. One of the gunmen, authorities say, is dead. They're looking for the other two "potential" gunmen.

Ft. Belvoir, just south of Washington, DC, has been infusing military base planning with a smart growth mentality since before it was cool. While new guidelines in the past year have compelled all U.S. bases to start building smarter and more efficiently, Ft. Belvoir has been working under a ...

Parts of Moscow are really starting to look like parts of Shanghai or Seoul or Osaka. I wonder if this bridge is an intentional homage to the Russian expressionists - and why are the supports so heavy...?

Look at this incredibly groovy Metro promotional film from 1976-77. That was back when five or six stations on the Red Line was all the Metrorail they had.

My favorite Ethiopian restaurant in the world! The decor is tasteful, the food is excellent, and Binyam and the rest of the staff really make you feel like family. I love the shrimp tibs, something innovative I've never been able to find in DC.

Everyone at my office goes to the Georgetown TbSP, so I finally went there and had their smoked turkey bacon sub. OMG, I haven't had a sandwich like this since I was in Spain. Their baguettes are awesomely textured, flavorful and richly accessorize their fresh ingredients. And the only Caesar salad I've had of this quality is probably my father's, which he learned from a Cordon Bleu chef. So amazing!
