A Quick Post to Address the Galaxy Nexus
College pals and I went out on the town tonight and had a blast; I also got to meet up with Shannon for the first time since he got his Galaxy Nexus. Overall, I played with it for about ten minutes, which isn’t much, but I was more interested in how different it would feel during initial impressions than how it does in extended use. It’s really nice. This is the first Android phone I...

ICS Paper Cuts →
The jailbreak community’s beloved Ron Weasley impersonator, Grant Paul (chpwn), put up a blog about rough edges he found in Ice Cream Sandwich, because Android users kept begging for examples of where Android has bad UI decisions. Naturally, the Android community denied everything about it. The comments are absolute gold. Now, Grant and I have gotten into arguments about dumb shit in the...
Hello! Pro Hour was an interview show of sorts between members of various Hello! Project units that aired online in 2006. The interviews were interesting if you could find translations, but the best thing about the show were the ending performances, which were collaborations between the two artists, and they were all (to my knowledge) acoustic performances. Furusato was the performance for the...
Fucking IR Blasters
I looked up Eric Schmidt’s comments on Google TV from the LeWeb conference a couple days ago because I thought I might have figured out a way Google TV could infiltrate the market within the next year. His exact quote was sadly, “By the summer of 2012, the majority of the televisions you see in stores will have Google TV embedded,” which my theory does not apply to, but it does...

Tired of hearing irreconcilable views on smartphones? Good. Go read up on some irreconcilable views on music games. Where I stand: Konami and Pentavision are not flawless entities. You can’t just assume they’re flawless and shift all blame to the community. Recent DDR releases are absolutely horrible. I hope I never touch a DDR X cabinet ever again. Don’t even get me started...

I love it when people all go on and on about how awesome it is that Android gives consumers a choice of devices, and then those same people will go out of their way to use a Nexus phone because they know as much as we do that carriers and manufacturers are incompetent little shits who will inevitably fuck something up.

If I see “fanboi” one more fucking time, I’mma punch a bitch. It’s fanboy, and amusingly, if he was using a Mac with Lion, it would automatically correct it for him. I wish journalists and bloggers would stop spelling like Avril Lavigne.

CNET: Google's Schmidt: Android leads the iPhone →
“Ultimately, application vendors are driven by volume, and volume is favored by the open approach Google is taking. There are so many manufacturers working to deliver Android phones globally,” Schmidt said. “Whether you like Android or not, you will support that platform, and maybe you’ll even deliver it first.” Uh. No.
I’ve come to this conclusion on Android and iOS: The iPhone was built around a simple idea: Apple is going to build this batshit insane awesome phone, and customers are really going to want it, but if carriers want it, they’ll have to play by Apple’s rules. When Google announced the Android platform to the world, the pitch they made was almost the complete opposite: Android...

oh my GOD. (thanks to squeeks for linking me to the guy’s soundcloud page.)
This week, a girl in Quebec called Marjorie Raymond killed herself after she couldn’t take any more of her classmates’ bullying. The story has blown up to insane proportions and it’s been all over the news today. The media seem to be tip-toeing around a big issue here, an issue I myself have faced as a victim of bullying as a kid. Everyone seems to be proposing that we have...
