I think this article from The Onion in 1997 anticipates the Amazon Echo Auto perfectly.
I plugged in my #iphone 1 that I bought on day 1 in June 2007. It runs iOS 3. The App Store STILL has apps for it. Can you believe that? Go find an Android phone from 2007 and see what love Google is willing to give it.
Marketing math. Making mac and cheese in 10 minutes:
1. Boil 6 cups of water (takes 0 minutes)
2. Cook pasta 9-11 minutes (takes 9 minutes, even if you boil for 11 minutes)
3. Drain pasta (0 seconds because you multitask)
4. Add butter and stir (30 seconds)
5. Add pasta back to pan and stir (30 seconds)
Amazing how this is in any way “in 10 minutes”
At my new house in the US, these are my #internet speed choices. 100Mbps, 300M, or 1 Gigabit! I currently have about 70Mb via BT in London. It's fine. I can't justify the gigabit connection. What am I missing?
Can't wait to get that #overwatch reward. Gonna get 0x000000000!
I think Jeremy Hunt is right. Only he’s got his definitions of “right” and “wrong” backwards. No Conservative party at all would be a good thing. Conservative values are important. People who hold those values should be heard, represented, and respected. But the current party is disastrous. The current party should be dissolved. (With Labour right alongside it)
I collected a bunch of personal memorable moments on a blog post: highest height, coldest temperature, farthest north/south/east/west, etc. Includes some photos. https://blog.paco.to/2019/my-personal-records/
This is a completely brilliant exploration of the US budget. Someone should do similar for the UK. https://fiscalfs.blogspot.com/p/about-if-youre-us-citizen-you-just-paid.html
Perfect symbol of #Brexit. For several days the BT tower, which can be seen for miles, has displayed an error message. H/t https://twitter.com/thomasdaigle/status/1114878670139809792
I reworked the Guardian's flow chart to help make it clearer how #brexit was going. I coined the term 'fuckstention', which is exactly what it's going to be.
