So, in case you heathens weren’t anywhere near a news site, Apple has released their new tablet, the “ipad.”
Gizmodo (and the rest of the relatively non-important tech blogs) have gone bonkers. Just visit the homepages. But some other stuff has been happening in the world.
First, the ipad will be revolutionary and all that rot. Goody for it. But here are some things that still aren’t happening. LIKE MULTITASKING! You can’t listen to pandora (or itunes) and work on a word document at the same time. Seriously, Apple? Seriously. I’ll wait, thanks, even if you do have a killer Unlimited Data Plan for $30/month.
Also, “iTampon” is a highly rated trending topic on Twitter right now. Marketing Fail, Apple. Heads I’m sure will roll.
Yellow Submarine Tea Infuser. Awesome? Yes. Potentially annoying if you have a “morning-person” for a flatmate? Definitely.
Someone put funny captions on pictures from a modernist spread in Dwell Magazine. You will tear up with laughter. Sample:
“Ever the realist, he built his table for one.”
People turn their heat on in New England before Thanksgiving? What? I had no idea!
I am definitely in favor of this. I wonder if there could be an expo-marker version, as well. Probably not that great around the food, though…
Oh, Shapely Prose, how I love thee. Also, Whole Foods will be giving higher employee discounts to those with BMIs in the “normal” range. Yes, because making it harder for larger people to buy healthier foods will make them “healthier.” There is a carrot/stick metaphor that is crying in the corner on this one. Good going, Whole (paycheck) Foods. Ugh.
Been to a HotTopic recently? I have. I needed that Percy Jackson and the Olympians shirt. Inside, however, I encountered the commercialization of rebellion. You, too, can be alternative if you spend $20 on this mass-produced shirt! Anyway, the link is a cute comic about said subject, only for adults with Harley Davidson.
Speaking of Harley Davidson, if you (or anyone you know) is looking to unload a motorcycle, I’m vaguely interested. Don’t worry, Mom, I’ll wear a distinctive helmet so you can identify the remains.
Dear everyone. Please pool together some funds and get this for me. Thank you.
