Finally! Confirmation of an Apple special event as the company has formally sent invites confirming 09-SEP-2014 (that’s the 9.9.2014 bit in the invite) as THE DATE for their special announcement. Like Moses wandering the Sinai for 40 years before finding the Promised Land, my time with the POS known as the LG Neon dumbphone might […]

In the normal reasonable sense of things, it’s an accommodation of a minority population that doesn’t cause a disproportionate or undue hardship, and that’s how the United Nations frames the […]

No, now is not the time to be sitting down to something light that is the deliciousness of schweinshaxe or cocido montañés. There is a siren call for something substantive to reflect the heaviness that is summer eating. Meatiness or the umami semblance of meatiness are the appropriate responses for the day.

Life on a dumbphone these past few months has been more than painful on a myriad of levels, the least of which being that LG probably went out of its way to design a truly idiotic UI for it. That and its on-again/off-again touchscreen that pocket dials and yet resists attempts to accept input when […]
