How about an app which automatically defaces select politicians e.g. Eric Cantor and John Boehner.

Re: wearables; The subject came up on some podcast I listen to on weekends, mostly bad tech advice from a “computer expert” named Leo Leporte, but he also does a decent job of editorializing, and he spent a few minutes talking about the wearable trend on his show (The Tech Guy) over the weekend.

PS Sold the Miata last week via Craig’s List, as “things” (possessions) go an emotional experience. 22 years of history gone. Still recovering (-:.

what did u get??

Joe Rosen

1/7, 12:16pm

Joe Rosen

No longer can I fool myself into thinking I own an “antique” vehicle. I posted it at $2.3K and got over 200+ emails in < 12 hours. Sold it to the first guy I contacted back. What’s your regular email? I’ll forward you a PDF of the ad, saved it.

Now of course I’m thinking it was worth 2Xs that, alas the dealer offered me $1K on a trade, so I can live with the $2.3K I got. Wasn’t really about the money. More of an emotional attachment.

(i.e. don’t build your own custom hardware, instead just start developing for Pebble.)

Alan, sorry, haven’t been around here (Facebook or anyplace else) much. Without boring you w/ details (nothing worse than an old Jew discussing health issues) dealing w/ ongoing medical stuff, body parts are sadly (and literally) failing );. As a result, I haven’t been working much on anything the past week or two either. In kind of a panic state about health.
