They’ve been out for an entire day, they’re no longer in their gummy prime and therefor are unacceptable to be eaten as such. They’re stuck in this weird limbo between the candy they were and the candy they’re destined to become…stuck between two worlds…like transformers or mudbloods. colormelauren: Why!? Gummy Lifesavers are the best!! johnburke: I left...
I left gummy lifesavers out on my desk yesterday without realizing it. I’m going to leave them there and it is my supreme hope that in another day or so, they’ll be regular lifesavers.

Drunk Guy: Nemo
Cop: Like the fish?
I'm So Modest
Ellen: The kid who worked at the apple store reminded me so much of you.
Me: So you mean he was cute, knowledgeable and a regulation hottie?
Ellen: Indeed. That's precisely what I mean!

FCC Looking Into Google Voice Rejection →
Look’s like the FCC has sent out a few letters to Apple, Google and AT&T to “find out what’s going on with Apple/AT&T’s decision to reject Google Voice from iPhone.
Mom: So I read in the paper today that there's some kind of virus or something that may hurt iPhones. Have you heard about it?
Me: Well...yeah. I've known about it for like a week.
Mom: Oh sorry, I forgot that anytime the world Apple is uttered your entire little nerd world on the internet freaks out and blogs about it for other nerds to read.
Me: Thanks Mom.
Second Twitpocalypse Is Coming
A tweet today from the TwitterAPI account warned that the second Twitpocalypse was closer than people thought. Okay, most people probably didn’t realize that it could occur again, but it can, and it will, and it’s fast approaching. The current estimate by the API team is that it will occur sometime in the next 60 days, probably at the end of September. They warn that it could happen sooner...
Just gonna throw this out there. Two google searches and a wikipedia reading and I still have no idea what a meme is and why everyone keeps talking about them. Someone care to explain?

See Ya Belkin
I’ve officially been welcomed into the world of 802.11N and the superb wireless networking of the Apple Airport Extreme Base Station. I went to the Apple store today after having a terribly frustrating time with my vindictive and moody Belkin wireless router. I was able to score a sweet educational discount by bringing my Syracuse ID with me and got the new router home, unpacked it from...
TechCrunch Founder Quits The iPhone →
My response to this guy’s story: Oh suck it up. Like Google Voice is the purpose of the iPhone anyway. Sure, it sucks - but in true Apple/Google fashion, I really doubt it’ll stay this way forever - and if it does, oh well. I appreciate the problem this guy is bringing up, application selectivity on the part of Apple, the looming threat that apps will be removed without logical reason...

My Router Is Vindictive
Lately, I’ve been having a lot of trouble with my wireless router. At this point, it’s a few years old so I guess it’s to be expected. For some reason it’ll just randomly lose it’s ability to communicate it’s own IP address, will drop off signal, will just shut itself off, etc. I go through periods where it works really well for days and then I’ll days of...

iPhone Virus? Turn Your Phone Off →
From Mashable: How do you know if you’ve been infected? Reportedly, you’ll receive an SMS message with a single square character, at which point your phone will become inoperable. As we mentioned earlier, the exploit is supposedly so severe that your entire phone can be taken over remotely, as such, the “turn your phone off immediately” if you receive the message seems to be the only sound advice...

Being A Grandpa
I’m still so used to going to sleep early to be able to wake up at 7:30AM for my EMT class. Even though I’m all done now, I still have this weird problem where I’m getting really tired early and no matter how tired I am, I’m waking up without an alarm at around 8 or 9AM. I used to be able to sleep until 4PM but I guess it’ll take a few days to get back to that...
Wow, I wonder who discovered this song and sent it...
So far, I have $3,565,400,000 to collect from my friends in Nigeria, Russia and Thailand. All I have to do is send them my social security number, mailing address and they’ll send me the money that my long lost relatives wanted me to have, or the money that dead soldiers left me, or the money from the guy who shares the same last name as me.

Apple Releases Official iDisk App →
Apple has finally released their official iDisk application for iPhone/iPod touch. The app lets you access and view iDisk and iDisk public folders right from your iPhone. Best of all, it’s free!
People always make fun of me because I’m in a constant state of writing letters and emails to companies when they do something that bothers me. I’m not mean about it, but I totally milk the concept of customer service. I got this skill from my mom. When I was younger, and even still to this day, she would write letters when she felt mistreated by a company. I remember one time I got a...
