Southwest Crash Landing

I like Southwest - a lot, actually. They are friendly, funny, and don't charge for baggage. I don't like the way they board planes, but it has its advantages, too.

This, however, is a sad tale: a Southwest plane crash landed, and then things were stolen from the passenger luggage before being returned. Shame on the Southwest employees (very little shame on Southwest - I don't think they could have trained everyone there to handle that kind of situation very well).

Slowing Down Time

When you're old, things seem to rush by. Why?

Possible answer: because we stop learning.

Institute for Creation Research is Hiring!

ICR, together with the rest of the creation science movement, has made great strides in the last 40 years. In many areas, the superiority of the creation worldview has been clearly demonstrated. Even now, ICR is making exciting discoveries in the fields of biology and geology, and we have started new research initiatives in the field of astronomy. However, there is much work that still needs to be done, and this work is hindered by a lack of trained scientists.

This article on Kait Weston parlaying her YouTube success into a career reminds me of what my friend Dave always says about American Idol: it's genius, because the buying public is literally voting on what they'll buy. It's irrelevant what the judges think - they're for show - the voting public is constantly refining their choice, week after week, guaranteeing at least some level of success to the recording company.

Newton Devices

I still have an eMate 300, and this article explores connecting one to Mac OS X.

I miss the handwriting recognition. It was quite good, Simpsons jokes aside… Or, let me put it this way: it was less frustrating than Siri speech recognition and network availability.

Twitter Fakes Real Users’ Tweets to Advertise

How stupid are some companies? Seriously?

The tweets look completely real, but SFGate discovered that while the Twitter users who are featured are real, their tweets are not. The users featured raving about TV commercials never said anything of the kind, and were unaware their profile pics and accounts were being presented in a post on Twitter’s blog sent out to hundreds of thousands via the @Twitterads Twitter account and retweeted to more than 1.5 million.

Verizon iPhone Activations Grew 41% YoY

TUAW has the story:

But then a funny thing happened. Last week, Verizon reported its earnings results from Q2 2013 and the results were better than what most analysts were expecting. Last quarter, Verizon activated 7.5 million smartphones, of which 3.8 million units were iPhones. Put differently, nearly 51% of all smartphones Verizon activated last quarter were iPhones.
