@DanSlott  And to be honest, I haven't stopped fantasizing about a PG Wodehouse "Psmith and Jeeves " book since @neilhimself  put a copy of it in Lucien's dream library of every book ever imagined but not written.

What I want to know is, when they got home after #fanexpoboston  and she asked him to work the knots out of her sore back and shoulder muscles, did he use massage oil or was it a marinade? @kfc

I haven't played enough of the game to know if putting a beatific glow around Princess Zelda was appropriate. But this cosplayer's smile seemed to justify it all on its own. #fanexpoboston

@KenpoB10  @DarkoAudioI  @patricknortont  @iAm_erica  @Ohthatflow  @ronxoa  @beginneraudios  @ant_pruitt  @thurrottn  @AndrewZarianever , ever about delivering value or a benefit to the user. A headphone jack is an inconvenience to the manufacturer and each manufacturer is dropping it as soon as they think they can, regardless of what it does to the user experience.

Eating lunch outside, watching the Apple Event on my Android phone and taking notes on my Chromebook. But I'm listening via my AirPods so that's gotta count for something.

To every mobile app or mobile web developer who is about to implement an idea that will interfere with my phone's native "long press on text to access the OS' native 'select/select all/copy'" function: your idea is terrible. Stop that. At _once._

I can't decide which one is MORE wrong: "Long press on text now does absolutely nothing. Go **** yourself. " @Patreon (, @instagram  ) or "I'm a genius who's come up with a long-press action that does something even MORE useful than select & copy text. You're welcome! " @reddit ().

Tink, Peter, and Wendy at #fanexpoboston . The downside of a sudden obsession with learning Photoshop "for real" is becoming one's own worst client. "There's really nothing _wrong_ with this photo, as-is...but are we _really_ happy with that background?"

I grew up Catholic and a Star Wars fan. To this day. when I hear “May The Force be with you” I mentally add “..and also with you."

The healthcare bill has already improved the lives of Americans: it's knocked Justin Bieber off of the "Trending Topics" list.

This was't a gay issue. Just as racism isn't a black issue and the crap we put women through isn't a feminist issue. They're _human_ issues.

I was Ahmed. Except I’m white, and that makes all the difference.

The only big thing I didn’t like about the SW teaser was that the full movie didn’t start when I frantically threw my wallet at the screen.

Wouldn’t it be great if the government were like your PC, and shutting it down and then restarting actually fixed problems you were experiencing with it?

An environment where a consumer feels "lucky" to get an iPhone X, or a Nintendo Classic, or any product, is toxic to dignity and the soul.

"Character" is how a person behaves when they believe nobody is watching and nobody will ever remember.

ATTENTION Andy Weir's "The Martian," of which you have heard universally great things, is TWO DAMN DOLLARS on Amazon.
