Such disdain for @1and1
. 4-day domain transfer times. 1+ day on DNS settings. Near impossible to leave. Dark patterns hosting. Shame on you!

Reason for asking about the Knock app: curious about the longevity of that interaction/other applications, ie knock to unlock bluetooth door
Well, GOOD MORNING. RT @st_vincent
Excited to announce the release of my upcoming self-titled album, out Feb 25! pic.twitter.com/VtOAwsHFlM
Anyone still using that app, knocking their phone to unlock their computer?
As if waiting on hold to speak with service isn't bad enough, Verizon is now rolling ads into the hold music. Monetize me, shitlords.

Must think on the abstractions bit.
Sometimes it sounds silly to say art can change your life. But if you give it power, it has power. It's as real as anything else you feel.
One of my big pleasures is recommending the last 2 Talk Talk albums. They're the kind of records that change/save your life—slowly unfolding

So much great music in 2013. Collected my favs:
Maybe I can have robots do even more, and have a robo-surrogate take my meetings. I wonder if it’d dodge the Roomba? vimeo.com/47000322

Maybe by next year I can TaskRabbit a drone to wait in line for me on Black Friday to buy a Playstation.
Krang from Ninja Turtles is the O.G. drone.

Darkside, DJ Koze, Holden, Jon Hopkins, Julia Holter, Oneohtrix Point Never, The Knife, & Tim Hecker killed rock and roll for me this year.
A quick stock of 2013’s musical miracles: new MBV, Daft Punk, The Knife & BoC, Outkast announces reunion, great albums frm Bowie & McCartney
