In short, Jony Ives can get as artsy as he wants but in the end, I just want to know which alert goes to what event. Go figure.
I'm wondering about that one. The only computer keyboard I have that makes an actual clickety-clack is my Razer mechanical keyboard.
And the clickety-clack of a typewriter when I type on my iPhone... I seriously haven't heard a typewriter in two decades.
And the iPhone sound that sounds like a telegraph, I know that's a text message. (Even though telegraph was way before my time too.)
I like the audible version of skeuomorphic icons. I don't know. To me, a beep is a beep. But if I hear something that sounds like a phone...
Not an email... Not a voicemail... Not a text... Not a calendar event... Not a Facebook or Twitter alert... Okay. I give up. You win iPhone.
I've had an iPhone for the last 5 years but suddenly, I'm confused and frustrated by my alerts. My iPhone is trolling me for attention!
I really wish I knew what these new iOS 7 sounds mean. Is there a setting so that I can see an actual alert that goes with a sound?
It was dark at 4:00 PM today... It's dark now and it's 4:40 PM. I will now sing Sweet Home California to the tune of Leonard Skynard's song.

We had Apple PowerBooks, Quadra computers, QuickTake 100 cameras, Newton 100 PDAs, email, and the Mosaic browser. '93 was a good year.
Apparently the question was, "How did we ever do business 20 years ago?" A: We were already pretty sophisticated tech-wise by 1993.
Unfortunately for her, she forgot I was a geek... And I proceeded to tell her in painful detail exactly what technology was available.
While in the car, my wife made the mistake of telling me about a discussion she was having about retro office/business technology circa '93.
I just realized that if I send images from the iOS Photo app instead of using the Twitter app, my images are going to have a bad time.

I like links, especially the sort you can throw on the grill!
One of the links is for parents. The other is for bloggers. Both are excellent articles and a lot of bloggers are in fact parents. :-)
For the record, I don't post links for the sake of posting links as a filler. Take a moment to read the last two links I posted. Good stuff.

Lol. I just saw a tweet I posted that was never actually completed. My wife parked the car too soon and made me get out with her mid-tweet!

Of all the games I've ever modded and played, Oblivion is still my favorite. Not for any realism. More like a beautiful fantasy painting.
I have 1,974 Fallout 3 screen shots. 701 Skyrim screen shots. 669 Oblivion screen shots. Why don't I have any Morrowind screen shots?

So many stellar people to discover & interact with in the world -- @twitter
's real value!
I have not lost and gained as many Twitter followers as I have today in a long, long, time. That, you know, is a good, good, Twitter day.

Also: If you don't have CLEAR objectives, aka KPI, you are doing nothing more than flailing. KNOW what works, be effective.
Seeing @TheJenATX @alizasherman
in my mentions all at the same time for the first time in a long time... Makes me very happy!
But yes. Content & connection are certainly important, but metrics drive the bus. :)
Oh noes. My wife just left again for a meeting. It's back to just me and the 5-year old and I was tweeting when I should have been working!
you can bump that statement up a level to cover all digital/social participation
& every audience is different. What works for one brand might not work for another. Trial & error, just keep learning.
Okay. I will resume tweeting about video games, posting amusing links, and complaining about whatever tech gadget is misbehaving now.
