“i'm not saying the cop was justified or not. i couldn't care less at this point, but while reading the article i found a lot of gaps in the author's storytelling. namely that on one hand is a kid that everyone seems to think is an upstanding citizen, and on the other hand this kid apparently incited a cop to shoot him. my point is that this article doesn't even attempt to fill in that gap in information regarding this case. as for this "nonsense" you'd like stopped. i have no hand in it, as my comment didn't actually voice an opinion either way.”
“ditto that. i can't believe they published this article with such a scarcity of information on the event. among many questions this article fails to even approach are how exactly redus was an integral part of the campus, or why someone who isn't an aggressive person at all would be driving erratically at two thirty in the morning and badmouthing a police officer so loudly that the neighbors could hear it.
i would like to borrow a quote from the article and direct it to huffington post regarding this very article: ...so the story just doesn't really make sense to any of us.”

“Who cares if he badmouthed a cop. That's not a capital offense. Stop the nonsense.”

“if it's your job to run around and sing at the same time, then you do it. outkast used to rehearse their sets while running laps around the block so their vocals would sound tight when they were running around on stage, and believe me, outkast does a lot more than strut around on stage, they dance and they hustle, and they sound damn good doing it (to someone who likes their music) - because it's their job to sound good. britney doesn't write, compose, or produce her music. she doesn't play any of the instruments. she doesn't even need to dress herself. nobody's asking for heavenly choirs up there. her album music is so over-produced, i'd accept it if she could at least just hold a melody while on stage. if she can't be bothered to figure out how to sing and dance at the same time then what is she getting paid for exactly?”

“I think I love you. I LOVE that you knew that about Outkast. lol”
“"as common as it is to buy a standalone camera... there's a good chance that either you or someone you know will have a wearable device"
if we're talking one in ten smartphone owners owning wearable devices (which is generous since the numbers indicate a one to fifteen shipped units ratio, and that's considering that a billion smartphones shipped this year alone, and 64 million wearables is a number that has three and a half years to manifest itself, by which time the smartphone industry will no doubt have grown even larger), then with any luck this is doomed to fail.
successful technology must fit the context. if i whip out my smartphone at a party, it's not immediately considered an intrusion because everyone has a phone. it's not unusual. if i pull out my DSLR while hiking with friends, nobody rolls their eyes and says "oh, you're one of THOSE people". the context of wearables is ALWAYS. if my focus is set on something an inch from my face that only i can see, however, and i'm constantly fiddling with my watch, while talking to my devices, i'm going to be an intrusion, eyes will roll, i WILL be one of THOSE people, and i'm going to have to pocket the wearables if i want to quell those reactions, making them all but pointless.
not to say this will DEFINITELY fail, or that it won't come back as something more marketable but, with any luck...”
“we're not seriously trying to turn this into a discussion about the lingering racial divide in modern american society, are we? this is a two and a half sentence description of a picture of a bumper sticker. let's all shelve our self-awarded "citizen of the year" trophies for a minute and take a break.”
“i'm less concerned about the fact that HP is disguising an advertisement for tupperware as an article, and more concerned that they are employing a team of people (or so i assume it is a team from the excessive amount of self-references using "we", though more likely it's a single obnoxious author) who could barely scrape together two paragraphs of readable copy and who thinks "we kind of can't wait to see what they think of next" is a sentence that should end in a question mark.”
“i'm with you. i say pick your battles. personally i can't believe how much hassle certain teams get, while no one seems to have decided to go to battle over the cleveland indians "chief wahoo" logo or the redskins... well, just the redskins, plain and simple.”
“i'd like to quote jeff golblum from "the great white hype": "my father used to tell me, son, smile and the whole world smiles with you. cry and i'll give you something to cry about, you little bastard"”
“the only new feature i'm seeing here is the ability to "snooze" an email, which, as a human being, i am already equipped with. it's as simple as ignoring the email until i have the time or desire to respond to it. leaving it in my inbox without dealing with it is not quite the same as say, letting a dog piss on the floor and not picking him up and moving him outside, and it's not the same as letting a physical inbox on my desk pile up until the clutter infringes on my ability to work with in a clear space with a clear head. internet and electronic information exist in "the cloud" or on my hard drive. the "mess" it creates can never be bigger than my screen, and "getting that mess out of the way" is always as easy as closing the window, or turning off the device. i love seeing "zero messages" as well, but it is a fairly meaningless achievement, and a very fleeting and nonsensical joy. meanwhile everyone drops backhanded humble brags about how they deal with hundreds of emails a day, so we'll all know how important and busy they are. which is it? do you want a thousand facebook friends and hundreds of emails, or do you want to be a self-contained efficiency unit with no emails? pick one, be that, and i'll eagerly await the day that there's an app for just shutting up about it altogether.”
