Going to pick my 6 year-old up from the Jason Mraz concert. He has a better social life than I do.

@chartier It’s human nature, as per Predictably Irrational or Stumbling on Happiness.
@chartier I’m not saying it IS wrong, but that people aren’t whiny dingbats for feeling the relative difference is unbalanced.
@chartier Even though Tweetie 2 is a ground-up rewrite, to the user it’s just an incremental upgrade. The relative price feels wrong.
@chartier Conditioning. People are used to paying incremental prices for incremental upgrades. Software devs have conditioned customers.
@chartier Of course, I’ve seen “Tweetie 2” more today than ever before. Any press is good press?
@chartier And completely Apple’s fault. If Tweetie 2 cost $2 for existing users, there’d have been no controversy at all.
@chartier People are upset because of the relative value of an upgrade costing the same as buying new. Human nature, not whiny dingbats.
What a clever metaphor. Oh wait, software isn’t coffee.
Turns out it’s configurable - you can set the order of the network services in the Network Preferences pane.
Why is it that my Airport connection takes precedence over a wired Ethernet connection on my MBP? Shouldn’t wired be “better”?
$3 doesn’t seem like much, but with the number of reasonably good Twitter clients out there, $3 x many adds up fast.
I’m not annoyed that Tweetie 2 for iPhone will cost another $3, I’m annoyed that Apple hasn’t provided a way to try before I buy.
Doesn’t crowd-sourced journalism feel yucky? Ask followers a question, write up their content instead of making your own, repeat. Boring.
iTunes 9.0.1: Slightly less beach ball than iTunes 9.0.0. Slightly.
“100 PR People Worth Following on Twitter” sound like my own little personal hell.
@jsnell Too busy playing games?
There’s nothing like viewing Twitter’s trending topics to reaffirm your faith in humanity. No wait, I got that backwards.
Wow. @Rogers made it look like I’d won some amazing loyalty award and had me jump through a bunch of hoops. The prize? A free movie rental.
You analyze the earth and the sky I ask you why you can’t analyze the signs Of the present time #fb
I can’t tell you how much it pleases me to see PR blasts that are particularly spammy actually get filtered out by Gmail’s spam filter.

Wow, tired Jason is grumpy. Time to sleep.
What’s the best alternative to Evernote?
I want to use @Evernote as a critical part of my workflow, but unreliability is sinking that option; worse, I lose what I was submitting.
There are at least 20 bright, interesting people that I follow whose tweets become slobbering gibberish on Sundays. Just sayin’.
Oh good, it’s football season. Time to start unfollowing some otherwise interesting people. Wish I could mute certain people on Sundays…
Beautiful family walk at Stanley Park, followed by a day at the Aquarium. SO glad I’m not an NFL fan; I like my Sundays too much! #fb
RT @zefrank to motivate myself i have started each day by thinking of myself as my own employee. so far i have fired me at the end of each 1

@jeffjarvis Haha - okay, that was funny.
@bradlinder “Horrible blogging injury” <- I know it’s very real and possible, and yet can’t help giggling a bit when I read that.
Telling someone “oh, lighten up” when they have a complaint isn’t likely to make them feel more favorable towards you. Strange strategy.

Could Jeff Jarvis possibly plug his book more EVERY SINGLE WEEK on This Week in Google? It’s gone from tiresome to grating already.
Is it bad that my computer speakers sound 100 times better when the USB cable for my printer is plugged into my USB hub? Grounding fail.
When @hotdogsladies mentioned the new spinning beach ball visualization in iTunes 9, I didn’t know what he was talking about. I sure do now.
Beware of short weeks… they have a way of sneaking up and kicking the crap out of you when you’re not looking. #fb
@jsnell Have to disagree with you about Apple’s resize UI. You should be able to resize from either side - eliminates moving THEN resizing.
I’ve got a case of the Mondays.

RT @ethanschoonover I think i would have switched the “Video Camera” and “Sort your iPhone apps” for “one last thing”… way more exciting.
When I think Rock ‘n Roll, I think… Norah Jones.
How is it people are surprised there’s no Beatles news from Apple’s event? “It’s Only Rock ‘n Roll” is a Rolling Stones song. Hint hint…?

@leemathews Not for me it didn’t. IMAP connectivity was in and out for me.
Unsolicited PR email used to make me feel bad. But I’ve finally come to terms with the fact that I have no responsibility to respond.
I love Gmail, but Google’s support sucks in a big, bad way.
I seem to be lucky enough to be experiencing a lingering Gmail issue with my work account. But it’s not a full scale outage, so I’m screwed.
RT @irreverend Only gmail could get so many nerds to plead, “Don’t go down on me!”
