No good reason

While I believe iOS feels more fluid and there's tighter hardware-software integration because the same people make both, I prefer iOS purely because…well…I do. That's it. The latest phones running Android are fine, and even the software seems to run well. But it's not worth the hassle of switching platforms. I… » 11/10/13 2:47pm 11/10/13 2:47pm

One small tip from William Zinsser – He wrote "On Writing Well". Use parentheses to highlight unnecessary words instead of crossing them out. It becomes easier to read the before and after versions of a sentence. » 5/12/12 7:43am 5/12/12 7:43am

I once had a sony walkman mp3 player. Tiny as hell, and had a great output. Also had smooth drag and drop functionality, so worked as a data storage. » 3/18/12 9:28am 3/18/12 9:28am

I completely agree. I had an unlimited plan for two years, and ended up going over 200 MB only twice. For some of that time, all AT&T had was an unlimited plan, so I don't beat myself up too much. Most people are best served with a 200-MB plan; few need 2 GB, and fewer still need unlimited. People are so worried about… » 3/17/12 11:35am 3/17/12 11:35am

This might not be the answer you're looking for, but my girlfriend and I share URLs of whatever we wanna watch, and then countdown to 0 to press play. Works great with netflix or any other online video source. » 2/27/12 1:12pm 2/27/12 1:12pm

Did they control for the fact that people who are depressed with their lives might tend to medicate it by drowning themselves in work? That would lead us to the old correlation-causation debate. » 1/30/12 6:26am 1/30/12 6:26am

What abt the fact that the device has to be powered during the sync? Isn't that a little annoying? Wifi sync gives me convenience of not plugging into my laptop but at the cost of powering it with a wall unit charger or the laptop itself. Seems a little counter-intuitive to me, unless I'm missing something. » 10/14/11 2:59pm 10/14/11 2:59pm

Have heard this before. It does make a good point. People somehow blame themselves less for poor inactions than poor actions. So, they stick to something even when the opportunity cost they're paying is too high. By quitting something when there's no clear path ahead, we might expose ourselves to good ideas for what… » 10/05/11 5:46am 10/05/11 5:46am

I was always a fan of streaming. I couldn't afford the 3-DVDs at a time plan and was sick of waiting for my 1-DVD to arrive in the mail. I hope Netflix increases the availability of content on streaming. Right now, it's not that high. Everytime I think of a movie that I really like and wanna see, it winds up being on… » 9/19/11 12:37pm 9/19/11 12:37pm
