@danielpunkass I think the days of developing an active community via comments are mostly done, with Twitter, Facebook, Google+ taking over.
@danielpunkass Some people turn of comments because they don’t add much value, but add work to curate. Are you saying that’s irresponsible?

@GlenTrainor It’s not that at all; sadly (or happily, depending on your perspective), it’s conditioned learning.

The word “fugly” was invented for the express purpose of describing iCal in Lion. Good God this thing is ugly.
The problem is, the Apple Store App isn’t available in Canada. My appointment was for an Apple Store in Canada. They can’t differentiate?
After making a Genius Bar appointment, Apple sends me a confirmation (good) that recommends downloading the Apple Store app.

Current status http://instagr.am/p/IM5Q…
1st two days were really frustrating, 3rd day not so bad, and by the end of the 4th day I’d completely adapted.
It took me about 4 days to get used to Lion’s reversed scrolling (used a utility in Snow Leopard to mimic it). Now I don’t notice it at all.
Watching Arrested Development from the beginning (and for the first time) on NetFlix. This show is comedic genius!
@Seanfunk Good luck! Hope it goes as smoothly as it did for me!
@Seanfunk You’re probably fine with just TimeMachine, I just don’t use it so I don’t know what the restore process is like.
@Seanfunk I believe you can, but I don’t. The documentation for SuperDuper is pretty solid when you dig into it.
@GlenTrainor Sounds pretty good to me.
@fraying Leave it on; it takes about 4 days to get used to it, and it really does feel more natural once you are.
BizNasty2point0 Happy birthday Pavel Datsuyk. I’d let this guy impregnate my future ex wife at the small chance the child be born with even half his skill.
@Seanfunk Otherwise the upgrade was very smooth. Make sure you’ve got an up-to-date backup, but otherwise it’s been great.
@Seanfunk Nope, Esc doesn’t do it. You have to mouse to the top of the screen, wait for the menu to drop down, then click an icon. Annoying.
There’s no universal keyboard shortcut for exiting full-screen mode in Lion? Are you *kidding* me?
I get the feeling @wilymanager wants me to quit my job.
gregr Thank heavens for Preferences, General, Sidebar icon size (in Lion). Had this huge font over there and it was driving me crazy!
_ds Are people installing Lion Home Basic, Lion Home Premium, Lion Business, or Lion Ultimate? I’m not sure which is for me.
@ttscoff I need a USB2 to DVI adaptor that is Mac compatible, and I recall you’ve used a few. What do you recommend? Max res 1680x1050

@lexfri And now, holy crap do I understand and agree – I can’t believe how badly Google has screwed this up.
@lexfri I didn’t understand what everyone was complaining about until our company’s Google Apps account was migrated to the new version.
@jen_robbins Hahaha! When branding goes wrong, eh?
@marcoarment How long can you afford for Instapaper to be missing a killer feature that your competitors all have?
But, @marcoarment doesn’t mention that you can just view the article in Safari’s Reader, scroll to the bottom, and email it to your IP acct.
@GlenTrainor Wow!!! Congratulations! And, I’m sorry!
Just went looking for replacement parts for my BBQ (grease tray rusted out), and found it was recalled for: faulty grease tray!
@jsnell Wow, antennagate sure killed iPhone 4 sales.
macjournals PO: 86% of the Fortune 500 are deploying or testing iPad; 47% of global 500 companies doing the same.
jsnell Again, there are now 28.7 million iPads out there. Almost half of them sold in the last 6 months.
“Apple is now worth more than Microsoft, HP, and Dell combined — with about $17 billion left over.” - MG Siegler
iPhone sales up 142% this quarter, highest quarter ever (including holidays), and they haven’t released a new model in over a year.
Wow, that “antenna problem” in the iPhone 4 really hurt Apple…
@adampash Typically what would happen is I’d get routed to the front page instead of the article.
@adampash Thanks re: VIP feed, I’ll check that out. It’s been awhile since I’ve been reading, but I’ll report it if/when it happens again.
@adampash The new layout lost me. Partial RSS feeds require clicking through to the site, but often the correct page doesn’t load.

@danbenjamin Right side, 2D black
@nbradbury I doubt Apple’s concerned about how they look to developers that have already shown their dislike for Apple.
We have thirteen six year-old boys in our house right now for a birthday party, because it’s July in Vancouver and there’s a monsoon.
@adampash In my experience it’s usually (but not always) a misbehaving extension that causes Chrome to act up.
This is hilarious. Oh no! Apple didn’t release Lion on the *rumoured* date! Get ahold of yourself, people. http://forkbombr.net/no-…
