Stop! The presses or why I love/hate Flipboard


  • Stop! The presses or why I love/hate Flipboard

    Surfing the internet on a touchscreen is wonderfully intuitive I find. I'm old enough to remember when hypertext links were new. I thought they would be incredibly powerful one day. Little did I know how much.

    And now there's this application that turns any Twitter/Facebook feed into compact and nicely formatted magazine.

    But only those.

    Flipboard makes my Google Reader account; Zinio, PDF reader and things like Posterous & LiveJournal look like dinosaurs.

    Flipboard has really spoiled me. And I can't wait until other magazines, blogs and media adopt the same kind of 'live' formatting.

      This one is 12.50 an hour, if, of course, you're only going to work 40 hours a week. I doubt that. After spending all day lugging equipment, answering phones, getting lunch, then you'll have to sit down and do your "expert"...

      I am, of course, speaking of coffee. The elixer of life.

      I'm partial to a Kona blend I get at the grocery store (I know, true afficianados will be cringing here). I used to make it in a french press, but it didn't make enough (!) and it got cold too soon, so I switched over to the ubiquitous...

      The Perfect Country and Western Song
      by Ed_L
      This could have gone in the "Let's talk music" thread, but I thought it deserved a thread of it's own. Do you have a favorite country song? I guess I have more than one. "I'm so lonesome I could cry" is probably the top for me. A couple of others that I really thought were special...

      Word of the day: paraprosdokian

      Unlike my last word of the day which was, for all tense and purposes macabre, this one is pretty fun. I got this in an email and copying it in it's entirety.

      We need your bookmarks

      OK, I got the bugs out of the new software (most of them, anyway). There's still a couple of ugly pages, but that's my fault and not the programmer's. I'm fixing them as I spot them (you'd be surprised at how many there are).

      So, what have I been babbling about, you ask?
