You Wouldn't Like Jonathan Franzen When He's Angry -
"Think of all the women who have never slept with Jonathan Franzen. His anger must grow by the day.

The Guardian: Is a hot dog a sandwich? An extended meditation on the nature of America by Jeb Lund -
If a sandwich is a portable, relatively tidy meal of meat inside a bread conveyance, the fact that the bun is sliced lengthwise but not all the way through affects nothing in this discussion. The bread is in essence no different when fully sliced and presenting a more familiar sandwich form. To quibble further, one might say, is to simply argue about hinges.

E-cigarettes are such weird, fascinating objects.
Our [Apple] developer rep is a nice guy, but he’s not the least bit technical, and in general I could only talk to him when he contacts me. I say ‘could’ because ever since we’ve had success on the Android platform he’s made it very clear that his services are no longer available to us. —
Rusty Shelf: I/O Thoughts
This seems… bizarre, if true. The rest of this guy’s comments - particularly of Google/Android developers being less judgemental of other people’s use of competitor platforms - ring pretty true.
