Longing for a Sense of Community in the Social Era

by Scott Lindemann November 3rd, 2016
The year is 1998. You're sitting at your desk, connected to the internet via a Netzero dialup program you hacked so it would stop showing ads on your 15-inch monitor, which is running Windows 98 in 1024 x 768 resolution.

On the Pliability of Materials

by Scott Lindemann October 6th, 2016
It's always something with these Apple devices, isn't it? If they're not scratching, they're cracking. If they're not cracking, they're discoloring. If they're not discoloring, they're dropping calls. If they're not dropping calls, they're chipping. And if they're not chipping, they're bending.

It's gotten to the point where this is almost considered normal. Such behavior is representative of a strange feature of modern society, in that even as

  • Mockups, Rumors, and Sapphire Glass, Oh My!

    by Scott Lindemann July 7th, 2016
    So we've pretty much seen all there ought to be to see with regards to these part leaks, right? I mean, we've got physical mockups of the iPhone 6 in Space Gray, Silver, and Gold, in both the 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch varieties. Then we've got SIM card trays a-plenty, showing... well, not a whole lot, really.

    Up until this point, I thought we were going to be forced to
