Phoney for Twitter for Mac
matthewrex: With the launch of the Mac App Store today, Twitter for Mac launched as well. It’s a fantastic update/replacement for Tweetie Mac. Loren & Co. have hit it out of the park, and as usual, I want to compliment their work with a piece of my own. I present to you a Twitter for Mac Phoney icon. Created with Twitter’s strict guidelines in mind ;-) Enjoy! Download

This one wasn’t too surprising as it resembles the iTunes icon. Like them or not, it makes sense for the two to be similar. Flight Control? — I still find it weird to see iOS apps coming over to the Mac. I love...
Aircraft engineers are funny people
mbisteni: After every flight, UPS pilots fill out a form, called a “gripe sheet” which tells mechanics about problems with the aircraft. The mechanics correct the problems; document their repairs on the form, and then pilots review the gripe sheets before the next flight. Never let it be said that ground crews lack a sense of humor. Here are some actual maintenance complaints submitted by...
