What's the play count of "Sin City," by the Flying Burrito Brothers, out of curiosity?
I know what you mean, the poseur factor being pretty strong in America, but consider that it's a good outdoor hat for artists, coming as it does from Basque shepherds, not only for warmth but because you can pull the edge in any direction to shade the eyes. So it's good for working under indoor lighting as well.This all gets more important as you get older and your eyes are more burnt out by contrast. The main problems with berets are the assumptions people make about you...
Rumor has it that there are vacancies on all sides of Apple ]['s apartment in New York.
You are confusing me with someone else. And I was just acknowledging Ireland's earlier post in this thread. I really don't need any help in despising Apple ]['s jingoism. Never have, never will.
Like you say, different for everybody. I plug in the old 4S every night, 30 pin, takes some attention. Also the iPad mini, Lightning connector, what a pleasure in contrast. If I get a Watch, it'll be long-lasting fun. Everybody's oxytocin circuits are different. I still get inordinate pleasure from feeling a naked iPhone 4. I'm looking forward to my contract upgrade for the 6 form factor alone. Function is secondary. I think many people feel the same way, which is why much...
One of the most repellent things you've ever said here. I suppose you get language like this from watching movies, since I doubt you're such a tough guy in real life.Anyway, you are saying that someone should assassinate him, correct? Do you think this is civil discourse in an international forum on technology?Ireland is right, you are a disgrace.
Like you were saying about iOS in the other thread, it's not for you. The watch is probably going to be most useful for people who go out in the urban world every day and interact with it in lots of little ways, sort of like the way you interact with your stunning array of tools at home.No one has grasped the charging part of the experience yet, but I will let you in on the secret, which I'm sure you will get conceptually better than anybody. The method, remember, is...
STEVE JOBS WAS RIGHT In the context of his statements, at the launch of both the iPhone and the iPad. Apple offering an optional stylus 8 and 5 years later respectively, on a huge glass canvas, has no bearing on what he said back then. The Macalope today is for those who would twistedly exploit his context-specific statements. http://www.macworld.com/article/2871919/never-say-never-again.html Via Gruber, who agrees. http://daringfireball.net
Very funny. Don't think either ethnic would mind.But you must have taken Glendale Blvd. past Aimee Semple Macpherson's Angeles Temple to get to Glendale, unless you took Alvarado, which joined Glendale at the Edendale post office, just before the Sennet studios. (I lived two blocks to the east of right there, in a damp little canyon with goats and chickens as neighbors.)Anyway, you had to go through Echo Park to get to Glendale. The Temple was on the north side of the...
Depends on the intent, not the quantity. You post a lot of great stuff. He posts a moderate amount of good stuff, enough to get him under the radar of some Panglossian types and other good-natured people such as yourself. My radar is tweaked for the layers under the skin of posters such as him. Maybe I've spent too much time around con men and other questionable characters. Twenty-five years in a place like the old pre-yuppie Echo Park will do that to you, if you keep your...
