Bizarro World Apple fanboy Scott Adams — yes, THAT Scott Adams — shows some tough iPhone love


From his amusing essay in today's Wall Street Journal: "Recently I bought something called an iPhone. It drops calls so often that I no longer use it for audio conversations. It's too frustrating."


"And unlike my old BlackBerry days, I don't send e-mail on the iPhone because the on-screen keyboard is, as far as I can tell, an elaborate practical joke. I am, however, willing to respond to incoming text messages as long as they are in the form of yes-no questions and my answer is in the affirmative."


"In those cases I can simply type 'k,' the shorthand for OK, and I have trained my friends and family to accept L, J, O, or comma as meaning the same thing."

2010 U.S. Census Participation


I found the map above after loading Google Earth 3-D.

One of the great things about being a TechnoDolt™ is that you oftimes find wonderful things like Google Earth 3-D years after everyone else has hopped aboard the cluetrain, so you get to experience the awe and amazement without the chorus of early adopters moaning about what isn't there.

I've been looking for this variation on the shoestring theme for years and finally got lucky last night at the little convenience store at my BP gas station.

Bonus: two cans.


Best new junk food of the year to date and sure to be a finalist in my 2010 Junk Food of the Year contest.
