The East Side Trail

Sun, 03 Feb 2013 16:55:09 +0000

A while back I posted a few photos taken on the High Line in Manhattan. Since then, we’ve gotten our own High Line of sorts: the East Side Trail of the Belt Line re-opened last October after being paved and otherwise improved. And it’s a big hit. If we’re in town, it’s a fair bet […]

And then there were 3

Fri, 11 Jan 2013 23:00:05 +0000

Well, four, actually. But only three models. So, where were we? Oh, yes . . . Well, within a couple of days of writing my lieber querulous, I had orders for an 8GB model (estimated delivery 8 – 9 weeks), and a 16GB model (estimated delivery 4 – 5 weeks), and I prepared myself for […]

Title 2 rules in a Title 1 world

Wed, 05 Dec 2012 16:36:56 +0000

There’s an amazing statistic in this Bloomberg article: Traditional wire-line service was in 95 percent of U.S. households in 2000 and less than 40 percent in 2011 This tracks with our personal history. For all practical purposes, we’ve been mobile-only since 2001. When we switched from DSL to cable internet in 2005, I ported the […]

Nexus Purgatory

Wed, 28 Nov 2012 18:10:23 +0000

Google, I love you, but we need to talk. It’s time for an intervention. Like many people, I looked forward to the Nexus 4 being available for sale on Nov. 13. Like many people, I started watching a few hours in advance of the announced Noon (ET) availability, and refreshed regularly. Like many people, I […]

“people were more inclined to take video than to run”

Tue, 14 Aug 2012 14:12:01 +0000

Interesting tidbit I gathered from reporting on #TimesSquare shooting: people I spoke to were more inclined to take video than to run away. — Aaron Edwards (@aaronmedwards) August 12, 2012 NBC: As the man backed down Seventh Avenue, police pepper-sprayed him six times to try and disarm him, but the man continued to threaten officers […]

“This is for everyone”

Sat, 28 Jul 2012 13:56:30 +0000

I don’t qualify as the most ardent of Olympics fans. Over the years I’ve watched Opening Ceremonies on the lawn of Centennial Park (complete with Ray Charles on piano), and in a restaurant in Maine. But mostly I haven’t watched at all. But like many people, yesterday I noticed a link to the BBC’s broadcast […]

The tweet that sums it up perfectly

Tue, 17 Jul 2012 14:43:34 +0000

Like everyone else, my reaction to yesterday’s Yahoo news that Marissa Mayer had been appointed CEO was “whoa, that came out of nowhere.” The universal outpouring of good will has been something to watch – as you can see over to the left, I got a little retweet-happy myself. Mark Rogowsky also sums it up […]

“No one came to Google’s party”

Wed, 14 Mar 2012 13:36:40 +0000

Update: A spot-on reply: But. But. Google was supposed to be different, folks. And what do you know? Like every start-up before it, it has matured and started to morph into a larger, more bureaucratic organization, concerned with threats and working to protect the core revenues. It was supposed to be different but, in fact, […]

Since everyone’s linking to it this week . . .

Sun, 22 Jan 2012 14:16:04 +0000

Why not. But then one gray morning did Internet Explorer 6 no longer load The Google. Refresh was clicked, again and again, but still did Internet Explorer 6 not load The Google. Perhaps The Google was broken, the people thought, but then The Yahoo too did not load. Nor did Hotmail. Nor The land […]

Bye-Bye Reader . . . Hello +

Wed, 02 Nov 2011 17:49:06 +0000

And I shared quite a lot of those. And hundreds of other items in two other Reader accounts over several years. But this week, as part of bringing Google+ (and Profiles) to Google Apps, Google is turning off sharing in Google Reader. It’s something of a milestone, because as Shreeharsh Kelkar points out, users tend […]
