Five Things That Are Wrong with Twitter

Some notes from a newbie Twitterer:

1. It is fun to twitter @ other people, but it’s only fun for you and the person you’re twittering @. To all third parties, it is boring

2. It adds one more link to the chain of things I do to avoid working (checking work e-mail, checking blog comments, checking home e-mail, checking …

It’s an Embedded Video Friday: Moon, Bioshock 2

First up, the first fully fledged Moon trailer:

I kind of … want this. It looks like Total Recall meets Eternal Sunshine. I’m trying not to think about the fact that the director, one Duncan Jones, is apparently David Bowie’s son. If you look on YouTube you can find a set of five clips from the movie, but I’m not linking to them …

March Maddeningness

Every year, it’s an ordeal. Some gung-ho sports fan in the office hands out that Xeroxed NCAA tournament bracket. I stare, mystified, at the meaningless grid of confusion. But I do it. I fill it out.

Will the iPhone Remain The Fairest of Them All?

Palm’s Pre is still months away from launch, but already it’s making the world a better place. Proof? Apple today announced that a raft of improvements is coming to the iPhone–including, at long last cut and paste.
