  • @ev arctic sea ice loss is due to natural climate variability w/the warm AMO, but antarctic sea ice extent at all-time high. look globally. in reply to ev #

  • kicking off monday morning with computer failure. seriously i hate these fucking things sometimes. #
  • 0 for 2 so far today. computers, you win. #
  • apparently my tweet last night about disconnecting from technology really pissed off the computer gods. revenge is always brutal and ugly. #

  • more reasons to install facebook blockers in your browsers, or ditch FB altogether: http://t.co/hIY5YcTC #
  • today's drive failure has made it more evident that inventing data storage w/moving mechanical parts was a retarded idea. switched to SSD. #
  • @bbrooks have read about SSD failures but one would hope it would be less if mechanical problems are removed. in theory after all :/ in reply to bbrooks #
  • @subimage yeah, though sometimes i like to put more faith in technology than i normally do. ;) in reply to subimage #
  • wasn't "global warming" suppose to cause increase in hurricanes? reality shows a 30-yr negative trend in frequency: http://t.co/eBVIYGgK #

  • agree that apple should buy foursquare now if it plans on improving its maps app: http://t.co/Cu871ar5 #
  • microsoft's new site design is clean, but it just doesn't feel right… like it's too timid or something, esp for a corporation. feels odd. #
  • an no the new microsoft site is not really responsive, looks like just the home page is. inconsistent look + feel across different divisions #
  • @subimage was mainly referring to how ppl are saying theirs is one of the rare corp sites that's responsive, but looks like just home page. in reply to subimage #

  • if winning means doing nothing but attacking your opponent instead of details on your plan and being an asshole, then yeah guess romney won. #
  • last night, romney told 27 myths in 38 minutes: http://t.co/LbEx4HWV #
  • the perfect job would consist of xcode, ableton live, photoshop and after effects. #
  • awesome library design by MVRDV: http://t.co/LRhf1GEM #
  • never trust a designer who uses windows or android. #
  • don't think we all exist in our own reality distortion field? just observe people at the gym. #
  • strongly believe in only needing two form-factors of a web site: desktop and mobile. responsive design unnecessarily over-complicates things #

  • @yocline mtn biking is an amazing release. and snowboarding. and motorcycles. and anything outdoors. in reply to yocline #

  • @beansbaxter except for their version naming scheme. ;) in reply to beansbaxter #
  • @downshift83 i’d be down for a meetup. in reply to downshift83 #
  • “Trading the best moments in life for a digital ‘thumbs-up’ seems like the very description of lunacy.” http://t.co/Oh6snWMg #
  • glad my only interaction w/windows and microsoft is just IE testing, and even that's too much. #
  • it's clear when ppl care more about revenue than user experience just based on how they integrate ads into their site. #
  • feel sorry for anyone excited about using windows 8, such a wonky piece of shit. horrible user experience. #
  • the computer gods are angry today. #
  • @brdrck love your work on 4cast, was wondering what weather data you're using? i'm on a team that develops weather api and tools for devs. #

  • and ppl say android jelly bean is good? http://t.co/s6b9MWdJ #
  • great review of the iPhone 5 by @gruber: http://t.co/MG5nN4sA #
  • as he points out, the “bored-by-the-iphone tech press/industry” doesn’t regard perfection in design the same as apple; for them, it’s specs. #
  • in other news, iOS 6 is released to the masses today. #
  • @F_i that site hasn’t really changed in years. insane! in reply to F_i #
  • @jcroft probably b/c android is so meh and uninspiring? in reply to jcroft #
  • to everyone bitching about apple’s new maps in iOS 6, remember it’s merely version 1. how many years and versions is google maps again? #
  • the all-vector paths and labels in apple’s maps are far superior than google maps raster images. apple has improved maps since iOS 6 beta 1. #
  • apple users sure are becoming more and more bitchy as of late as if they could do any better. go to google’s half-assed, clusterfuck garden. #
  • @wxjoe think people are just disgruntled about being forced into change, happens every time one is comfortable with something. in reply to wxjoe #

  • …pretty sure that mentality is found within the definition of lunacy. #
  • @BigJoeBastardi economy crashed in 2008 before obama was in office b/c of the housing crisis, so how was this his doing? in reply to BigJoeBastardi #

  • interesting, @foursquare open-sourced their iOS networking library: https://t.co/WBczXBN0 #
  • getting into this level of detail on any design would be amazing: http://t.co/vAZDCDyc #
  • apparently apple had to throw out google maps b/c google wanted control of the app but didn’t want to license to apple as before. #
  • nice to see that @amazon is trying to enliven seattle’s rather boring high-rise architecture w/new downtown HQ: http://t.co/ZHtmUXwg #
  • another thing to take note of regarding apple maps, they use yelp's database for places; so if a place shows up in the river, it's not apple #
  • @bbrooks @nmyra awesome! in reply to bbrooks #
  • remember, google maps has been around for years and many updates and still has issues: http://t.co/ulRirbql. mapping is difficult. #
  • iOS 6 adoption is already at 28% less than 48 hours in: http://t.co/Wjbkcc54. compare that to android’s clusterfuck. #
  • nothing irritates me more than ppl who aren't true to their word. all talk, no action. #

  • OH: “maybe the requirements for having a car drivers license needs to be more than having a body temp of 98.6.” #
  • even though it may suck now, why apple made the right move by releasing their own maps app in iOS 6: http://t.co/5hvzcxKp #
  • @bbrooks @nmyra sweet! a lot of users amazing how much lighter it is too. can’t wait to get mine. :) in reply to bbrooks #
  • really need to surround myself by more inspiring people. #
  • @hwlee usability/interface isn't the issue, it's the lack of or inaccurate data. interface and usability wise it's better than google. #
  • @hwlee usability is primarily concerned w/user interface and interaction; the data side pertains to how functional. #
  • @hwlee in that case, torcher or torture works lol. in reply to hwlee #
  • @subimage that’s fucked up! in reply to subimage #

  • samsung clearly isn't the only one lacking any creative or innovation ability and blatantly ripping off apple: http://t.co/L69DrpuL #
  • as much as i'm sick of the endless lawsuits in the tech world, i hope apple unleashes hell on HP for being fucking ridiculous. #
  • your questions should always outnumber your answers. #
  • major case of the mondays; today will indeed be a struggle. #

  • severe introversion is severe. #
  • just noticed the flip reveal animation when tapping an icon in the iOS 6 AppStore disappeared recently, now it just fades. yuck. #
  • even after the US warmth this summer, global temp anomalies are only +.01 C, hardly evidence of major global warming: http://t.co/L0iouEuy #
  • that's year-to-date, january through september, which warming fanatics say was the warmest on record in US, but hardly globally. #
  • only reason "global warming" has been changed to "climate change" by those who preach it is so they can also include cooling in their lies. #

  • aside from coffee, nothing beats the sound of sportbikes in the morning. or any time of the day for that matter. #

  • first, html5 proponents say it can be as good as native. after zuckerberg statement, they retract and say mistake was using html5 as native. #

  • siri really needs to improve drastically to be useful, and put some of it on the device instead of all remote server calls. #
  • black + slate. sexy. #iphone5 #
  • @nmyra i’d rather have her reject my calls instead. in reply to nmyra #
  • still waiting for apple to release a device with haptic feedback. #
  • the ppl all about apple rumors prior to the event are the same ones that bitch and whine about not being surprised when announced. #

  • @friskygeek that's why facebook now needs a "hate" or "fuck you" button. in reply to friskygeek #
  • the new iPhone sold out of pre-order stock in *one* hour in the middle of the night. compare that to 22 hours for the iPhone 4S. #

  • the fact that each version of IE is so fucking inconsistent you waste more time working around its bullshit than any real development. #
  • what works in a newer version of IE doesn't work in an older (expected), but then you have things that work in older but not in newer. wtf!? #

  • as if we needed anymore, but evidence of how fucked up this country really is: http://t.co/EuUbZ9sn #
  • ios apps made with tools like titanium are a step up from web apps, but still clunky as hell. #

  • what’s behind at&t’s stance on facetime: http://t.co/vag6q5GI #
  • @mattgemmell most software support is like that; it’s always you’re wrong-doing, never theirs. in reply to mattgemmell #
  • @LeonGersen great work on your noUiSlider plugin! issue tho, when using .move() it stays between 0-100, not what my scale is set to? #
  • it’s pretty strange and pathetic that microsoft is rebranding their entire company after their lame tile (“metro”) obsession. #
  • the latest facebook iOS update just proves what i’ve been arguing all along: native trumps html5/web apps any day. #
  • @imjustcreative problem is the new microsoft logo isn’t microsoft, it’s windows. means nothing in regards to the company as a whole. in reply to imjustcreative #
  • @imjustcreative now just like apple, microsoft is using the new logo w/o the name on their stores (boston). most ppl think windows store. in reply to imjustcreative #
  • what happened to companies sticking w/what they’re good at instead of being up apple’s ass on everything. innovate your own products. #
  • google, amazon and samsung: “oh look, that’s made apple a huge success. we’ll just follow their lead and let them do the hard part.” #
  • now throw microsoft in that mix. all the companies that hated apple’s closed system year ago are now evolving in that direction lately. #
  • funny thing is these other companies don’t get it; for the masses it’s not about specs or performance, design is key. only apple gets that. #
  • microsoft’s rebrand design process: http://t.co/sIUFEKwV #
  • objective-c string encoding hell. #lesigh #

  • you can tell the media is antsy due to the lack of hurricane threats the past few years by their endless coverage of a tropical storm. #
  • so far sumsung loses big time in the apple-samsung verdict: http://t.co/cuiwVivE

    good. #

  • to all those saying the apple-samsung ruling just stifles innovation, so does blatantly copying another company’s work. #
  • patents promote innovation and diversity; copying a design is not innovation. how can apple’s win stifle innovation at all? #
  • if you can’t use a particular design element or feature b/c of patent, wouldn’t you be more willing to innovate and create your own? #
  • although some argue patents seem obvious after the fact, but clearly they didn’t before. however, the endless patent war is getting old. #
  • samsung says today’s win by apple should be seen “as a loss for the american consumer.”

    um, yeah, b/c we won’t have anymore iPhone clones? #

  • steve jobs stepped down from apple one year ago today. poetic. #

  • “The most reasonable course of action, therefore, is to truly innovate and design products that aren’t such close copies.” #

    fucking pathetic. #

  • @mattgemmell it’s getting ridiculous, can’t imagine what their probably is. in reply to mattgemmell #
  • with the clusterfuck array of browsers and what they support, esp mobile, i’m disliking web development more and more these days. #evolving #

  • twitter’s inability to block spamming accounts that all have the same pattern is fucking ridiculous already. #
  • iOS device + version support matrix by @empiricalmagic: http://t.co/GiNchXek #

  • just played w/windows 8 for about 5 minutes, long enough to realize it’s still a clusterfuck OS, esp w/the metro UI thrown in half-assed. #
  • windows “metro” style (or whatever it’s called now): yeah, because i like my OS to look like a big infographic. #
  • OH: “please don’t put your package on the counter.” (referring to the gym locker room) #
  • it’s pretty sad that we let media + network conglomerates stifle the huge potential of technology’s future. #

  • @TNelsonWNTV @WeatherNationWX a shot of downtown seattle. #heatwave http://t.co/UIkUHD9O #
  • evidence that the urban heat island effect and growing urban centers are false indicators of global warming: http://t.co/y5jjNThU #
  • of course none of the AGW alarmists will consider that, especially when most of the official and longest-reporting stations are urban areas. #
  • “…one site is not necessarily representative of a region and besides it might have observing issues.” http://t.co/y5jjNThU #
  • sounds like twitter is the next company to turn evil. #sigh #
  • @friskygeek think the outrage is more about how they went about it, kind of like screwing over all the devs and services that led to growth in reply to friskygeek #
  • @friskygeek not saying i agree 100% with those complaining, but understand why; for business it makes sense, for developers a big “fuck you” in reply to friskygeek #
  • @friskygeek much of the draw to twitter was its simplicity, only about the content; lately they are shifting toward a FB-esque platform. in reply to friskygeek #
  • it's difficult to find motivation to sit into front of your computer when it's 82+ degrees in your apartment and no AC. #heatwave #

  • current US drought and greenland/arctic ice melting caused by a warm phase of AMO, *not* global warming: http://t.co/ZLClJ4eS #
  • in a few years the AMO will turn cold and greenland/arctic ice will increase. i’m sure AGW alarmists will say due to global warming too. #
  • the biggest issue is AGW alarmists deny the effects of naturally occurring climate cycles due to SST variability in the pacific and atlantic #
  • “large-scale droughts in the United States are likely to be associated with positive AMO” http://t.co/NpB1BhLu #
