Just got stopped for being white in a black neighborhood by the reputable Baltimore City Police. Two racist, sexist pigs get out and tell us to get out and proceed to dig all around in my car without asking permission. When I asked “don’t you need a warrant?” he looked at me and laughed. Then they tried to scare us by saying things like “you’re high right now!”...

joft attacks the city: 100% →
joft: My father is 71 and still working. Both of my parents will probably never retire. I’m a first generation college grad who would have had no chance without federal grants. I have 10 nieces and nephews who I tried to set a good example for, and who might never get the same opportunities as me…
I’m probably supposed to be asleep, but somehow we ended up sleeping from 2am to 5pm, so now I’m all screwed up.
parislemon: I’m sure it’s purely coincidental that just as iMessage is about to hit in iOS 5, AT&T is removing all of their lower-priced text messaging plans.

brokenbride: Hey everybody, So I’ve been holed up in my office since I got back from my honeymoon in November, trying to write “Broken Bride” the novel. I’m working in a sound-proof room (well, it’s sound-resistant) that I built myself in our basement. The ceiling down here is only 6 feet high (and…
An iOS Developer Takes on Android
nfarina: Recently, we released the Android version of Meridian, our platform for building location-based apps. We didn’t use one of these “Cross Platform!” tools like Titanium. We wrote it, from scratch, in Java, like you do in Android. We decided it was important to keep the native stuff native, and to respect each platform’s conventions as much as possible. Some conventions are...
Matt Richman: A Consequence of Losing the PC Wars →
mattrichman: Apple brought in $4.976 billion in revenue from the sale of 3.76 million Macs last quarter. Divide the $4.976 billion in revenue by 3.76 million Macs and you get an average selling price of $1,323.40. A June 1st research note from Peter Misek of Jefferies & Company pegged Mac gross margins at…
