Baby did a bad, bad thing (with the assistance of butterfingers and gravity).




Apparently in a battle to the death, asphalt beats Gorilla Glass.

Good to know.

I suppose it could be said the timing is right since the new iPhone is due out soon. This is the perfect excuse to buy a new one.

Except.

Upon viewing my scarred device in a meeting, the IT team felt bad for me. One apps development guy said “Hey, I have an idea. You could do some testing for me.”

And he put a new phone in my hand.

The timing couldn’t have been more odd.



I guess in the wake of a $1 billion dollar verdict, going from an iPhone to a Samsung is about the most subversive thing I can do here in the Silicon Valley.

“Rebel, rebel, you’ve torn your dress….”

    That is so sad. I’d like an update, though. Now that I have an ipad, well, my phone is just so sad that I no longer use it in the same way. Really, and ipad is just a big ol’ iphone without the phone.
    I spend too much money on apps. And music… It’s all just a bunch of addictive whooey.
    Did you see the article about how Apple is like Breaking Bad?
