Marissa you need to stop doing this.

Superb - this is exactly the kind of innovation I was hoping for. Now let’s get promo-codes.
I was speaking to an Android developer a while ago who was annoyed that this feature - the ability to respond to users’ reviews - was only initially available to ‘major app publishers’. He couldn’t wait “to respond to assholes.”
So, while, I love the idea of the Google Play Store actually taking a new approach to app store functionality, I have a hard time imagining this doing more good than harm. When a review sits on the top of your app’s page and asking it’s complaining about the lack of a feature that you’re already working on, being able to respond it is great (assuming that the response is then visible.) In every other case, it seems like you’d be attempting to rationalise with people who either wouldn’t bother to change their rating as a result or who simply wouldn’t care.
Still, it’s good to see innovation - any innovation - in an area where Apple’s been relatively unadventurous for a long while.

The halfcat, attracting newly revived interest on Twitter thanks to this blog post, appears to have first been spotted in this blog post in August 2009. But there are no attributions. The latest reports pin it to Street View - not mentioned in the original posting - and it certainly appears to be Street View image, but, lacking coordinates, the halfcat seems destined to be a mystery forever, one of any number of mythical beings, lost in the Clouds.
More interesting than the halfcat’s strangeness, perhaps, is its unknowability. Someone saw the halfcat, snapped it, but the route back is lost. The databases contain such multitudes of new myths.
Okay, yes, new thing.
