How to Reach Me This Week
Unable to fall asleep. I blame excitement. Excitement because in 2 days 5 hours and 48 minutes, I will on a the first leg of my two-leg plane trip to Tokyo. People have started asking me how they can follow along at home and it boils down to: Thanks to a friend, I will have connectivity on my phone and this means I will continue to pester people on Twitter with up-to-the-second updates on stuff...
also, by virtue of the fact that Google+ is a Google product, there are...– Me, talking to Shannon.
100 Yen: The Japanese Arcade Experience @... →
Arcade gaming is near and dear to my heart. Console, PC, and handheld gaming can fuck off and die for all I care if that would mean the return of arcade gaming to North America. (That sadly won’t happen.) 100 Yen is a documentary currently seeking funding on IndieGoGo on the Japanese arcade gaming scene and judging by the trailer, it looks ridiculously well done. It seems they’ve...
Two iCloud Quirks Before Bed
Bookmark sync might as well not exist for me. All my devices now seemingly have separate sets of bookmarks, and certain mods propagate to other devices, but they never converge on something common, and there doesn’t seem to be a way to force it. This is irritating. Contact sync is one revision behind for me all the time, meaning I can add a contact and it won’t show up unless I also...
Clever name for an inductive charger business. Inductive charging is one of those things I’d like to see Apple steal from WebOS devices, but I’m not sure if Apple would want to do that when it could have a big negative impact on the third-party case ecosystem.

The Next Web: YouTube considers phasing out... →
Sounds like a great move, especially since Google+ usage1 is THROUGH THE ROOF. “Usage” is measured by the amount of people who load a page with an embedded +1 button or some other dumbshit metric to make it look like Google+ isn’t an echo chamber for Google employees and SEO/social media expert douchebags ↩

Gizmodo: One iOS Icon Is Larger Than The Entire... →
Gizmodo, once again, full of shit, reporting that one iOS icon is bigger than the Mac 128k’s screen. Of course, that is not actually the case. There are several sizes for iOS icons. The biggest one actually displayed by iOS itself is 144x144 pixels (the application icon on a Retina Display iPad), which is smaller than that of the Mac 128k’s 512x342 display. Gizmodo is talking about...

“Twitter’s gung-ho product VP Satya Patel told Businessweek that 2011 “was the year we began scaling… our ad business… And 2012 is the year when we demonstrate it’s a juggernaut.” The best is yet to come, in other words.” Translation: get ready for buttloads of Twitter ads in 2012.
Over on r-ch: Multiple PSN Accounts on the Same... →
As mentioned earlier, having multiple PSN accounts on the same PS Vita memory card is possible, and I wrote up the process you need to go through on my real site, along with a list of limitations if you choose to go through with it. I thought I had found a workaround that does not involve nuking your device’s settings and rebooting, but when testing it, I ran head first into a bullshit...
