I’m saddened by James Gandolfini’s passing. He was a great talent & I owe him. Quite simply, without Tony Soprano there is no Walter White.

Jony Ive hates The New iPad

March 7, 2012 — Uncategorized1 Comment

Apple’s Jony Ive is not a happy camper:

  • The New iPad still has a black bezel instead of edge to edge screen
  • “The New iPad” is a silly and inelegant name

 

My favorite part is the commentator and the explosive celebration from the guy in blue.

I never would have guessed that there were professional paper airplane designers.  Maybe I could have imagined that, but I definitely wouldn’t have guessed there was an entirely separate group of elite airplane throwers who train and focus solely on their paper-airplane-throwing abilities.

Wouldn’t you want to throw the thing if you spent the time crafting it?  I guess at this level of competition you have to stick to your niche.

Wake up HBO

February 21, 2012 — Entertainment1 Comment

The Oatmeal posted a perfect depiction of stubborn media companies refusing to change.  Wake up HBO, upgrade your archaic pie charts, and at least make it possible to sell to the modern consumer.  The one that lives in reality, the one that doesn’t want to wait months after an entire season of a show is over to legally purchase and watch the first episode.

  • I’m not going to upgrade my cable package to the obscene 700-channel package with HBO+HBO Go+Premium Everything for only $250 per month.
  • I don’t have the cable package for you to upsell me from.
  • I don’t have cable.
  • I don’t even have a TV.
  • I have a monitor that I hook into my computer and use Netflix, Hulu, and websites of media companies that get it.
  • You aren’t incentivizing me to upgrade to your service, you’re forcing me to figure out another solution.
  • There are a lot of people like me.
