not really a blog, here are just some notes, quotes, links and thoughts that are as much for myself as anything. if anyone else ever reads this, please excuse the silliness. hi mom
and, "smallduck".. don't call me that. it's just an id from back in the day playing Marathon at work (guess what colour i always was). as well as going to this page, through the inevitable magic of RSS these entries also land on my facebook page - where i use my real name :-o
i recently changed the theme of this page again, i like this a little more.
no consumer could reasonably be misled into thinking vitaminwater was a healthy beverage
(Do you see this show surviving and being a presence 50-100 years in pop culture?)
Yes. Because we were right. The thing we made was right. The network was wrong. We were right, the universe was fully realized and very cool.
The fact The Lorax is a hit and John Carter is a flop makes me want to stab everybody.
You say you’re being denied the “freedom” to do what now? Oh, to deny others their freedoms? Right.
Now you’ve got theme park rides as the source material of movies. The only things left are breakfast cereal mascots. In our lifetime, we will see Johnny Depp playing Captain Crunch.
John Gruber asks “Not sure how they’re going to justify that later this year if iPad-esque Windows 8 tablets hit the market on schedule”. I think they’ll justify it quite easily: Windows 8 tablets will count as PCs because they run Windows, a PC OS, but iPad still won’t because they run a smartphone OS. Similarly they won’t count Android tablets as PCs.
I predict the industry will put Windows 8 tablets into their own category, ultra-tablets or some such, and continue to avoid direct marketshare comparisons to the iPad or to ebook readers even though the functions of all these devices will overlap more and more.
Corporations are not people; I hold this truth to be self-evident.
