Like a lot of people, I listen to my music on the go on my phone. I don't have the ability to appreciate all this fancy new stuff.

The #1 thing Apple can do to improve my buying experience is to put lyrics in the USLT tags, so I don't have to hunt around the Internet or use some other tagging software.

The #2 thing Apple can do is offer songs in Apple Lossless. AAC was a good choice back when 128K was the bitrate of the day. But, in a world where everyone is selling 256K and 320K tracks, I'd rather get my music in a lossless format and convert down to VBR MP3.

I thought iTunesLP was a cool format. But, for the life of me I could never figure out why you couldn't get the full iTunesLP experience in on your iPad or even iPhone.

As someone who is into watches, one of the things I have learned is:

Watch glass is either mineral crystal or sapphire crystal.

Mineral crystal is prone to scratching (as compared to Sapphire), but handles a direct impact relatively well. Sapphire crystal is much harder and is extremely resistant to scratching, but is much more shatter-prone than mineral.

If you don't want something to leak on the Internet in the 21st century, DON'T DO IT!

Perhaps the NSA could have learned that lesson with Edward Snowden...

These really are just nude pictures, some with sex. But are we all shocked that are celebrities look hot when they're naked?

Far worse would have been for photos to leak showing criminal activity, such as torturing dogs, doing drugs, or acting like complete assholes by beating up and torturing people.

>Give me one other part of history where everybody shows up to the same social space.

How about Usenet? It was the social space of the Internet through the 90s.

I really miss Usenet and the ability to go to one social space for all my hobbies. Now I have to hop on dozens of different forums. Rather than just fire up my Usenet client and go to rec.collecting.stamps, I end up going to 3 different web sites.

To thine own self be true. (If not that, at least make some money.)
