Grand Unification Theory of Baseball

10 Things I Believe About Baseball Without Evidence

Let me say that again: statistical analysis (that we in the public are aware of) takes the most important element of the sport, and ignores it.

It's like having Newtonian physics without relativity and quantum mechanics. There's a lot you can do with Newtonian physics, but at the extremes, it begins to break down, because it is ignoring some deeper, more fundamental truths.

If you're a team that relies on constructing its roster using such statistical analysis, what mistakes are you making by ignoring the most important part of the game?

Apple to GTAT

Apple to sapphire supplier: “Put on your big boy pants and accept the agreement”

  • A $50 million penalty for breach of confidentiality per occurrence.
  • No manufacturing processes could be modified by GTAT without Apple’s prior consent but GTAT must immediately implement Apple’s suggestions.
  • GTAT must fulfill any purchase order placed by Apple on the date selected by Apple or purchase substitute goods at GTAT’s expense.

When you are as big as Apple, you get to be a bully.

Spamming a Text Spammer

Guy Perfectly Turns The Tables And Gives Text Spammer A Taste Of His Own Medicine

Earlier this summer someone contacted me about golf lessons for his son. Long story short, he was going to send me a check for an amount (we'd never even discussed the cost of lessons), and I was to give the extra back to his son in cash to cover his travel expenses or some such.

Uh huh. :-P

Dropbox on Yosemite

John Gruber on Twitter: "@anildash I foresaw ambivalence. Even better, they've embraced."

Now if only the Dropbox app would work, and display the icons and whatnot, instead of crapping out and crashing all the time…

Yippee.

Lowest Score Wins

The book I co-authored, Lowest Score Wins, continues to sell quite well despite only promoting it occasionally through the Facebook and our Twitter account (@LowScoreWins).

Several people have called it "the best golf book ever written." We didn't even pay most of them! :-) Just kidding… we didn't pay any of them to say that.

But we agree with them…

Kindle Voyage Review

Six Colors: Kindle Voyage review

The Kindle Voyage is a premium reader at a premium price, targeting people who love their Kindles so much that they won't hesitate to spend $200 for the best Kindle they can buy. It's a smart decision, I think, and the Voyage is an excellent product.

That all said, I have to admit that of all the Kindle upgrades I've done over the years, this one felt the least significant. The screen is better, but the Paperwhite screen was already quite good. It's good to have buttons again, but the accidental touches I make on the screen adjacent to the buttons somewhat reduce my enthusiasm for that feature. The typography is unchanged and mediocre.

In other words… I'm fine with my PaperWhite.
