#estress level: 58
@KevinCTofel Ummm, ouch! I can’t deal with my email being that out of control, but I’m a filer, not a piler. To each their own, right?
Actually, let’s coin a new tag for email stress expressed as a value from 0-100, which is the number of messages in your inbox: #estress
My current E-stress level from 0-100: 136 (down from 200+ this morning)
E-stress: A big factor of my total stress level is a value from 0 (none) to 100 (max) based on how many email msgs are in my inbox.

Does Spaces in OS X regularly forget that it is set to show certain apps on all spaces for anyone else? It drives me crazy.

Windows Phone 7 Series? Doesn’t even have copy-and-paste. I’m sure MS never mocked Apple for not having it when the iPhone released…
Copy-&-paste was so important in Windows Mobile and its precursers that you had to prove you could do it to start using the device.

A marketer singing the praises of Facebook is like a commissioned electronics salesman singing the praises of the extended warranty.

@chartier I’m not saying the article is wrong, just that it’s futile. I write online too, and wish it wasn’t the case.
@chartier Asking web users not to block ads is like asking TV watchers not to skip them with a PVR. That horse is out of the barn for good.
@chartier It’s the age of Google, where content has become commoditized. If one source disappears, they just search for a new one.
@chartier Adblocking article’s good, but you presume readers love the sites they visit. I think few have that level of loyalty.
That’s probably only entertaining / adorable to me.
