I'm 28, grew up listening to Graceland, and still love it.

Wait a minute... that's not the wallet inspector!

@12 Actually, the App Store didn't exist until almost a year and a half after the iPhone was first announced (and about a year after it went on sale). Apple initially said that users didn't need to install applications at all, and that web apps were fine for things not supported by the software supplied with the phone. People started hacking the iPhone and building apps anyway, and it was only after that that Apple reversed course. (And they've probably never been so happy about changing their minds).

Now, Apple is certainly very happy to be getting the revenue from the App store, in place of people playing flash games, but Apple's dislike of Flash predates their love of that 30% revenue cut.

Sheesh, I was just explaining what the "-XX" convention means. FWIW, the President does it too. No one is claiming is claiming that she doesn't stand by what her staffers write.

#2 - the "-PM" probably indicates that it was written by Murray herself, and not a staffer, as most of the other tweets on her feed almost certainly are.

Can I recommend the excellent documentary 'Helvetica' to everyone? I had never realised quite how ubiquitous this typeface is until I watched that film.

My grandmother, who gets most of her news from Fox, and watches Glenn Beck and Bill O'Reilly religiously, was full of praise for the speech this morning. It's probably the first nice thing she's ever said about the President. But she did say it.
