I’m astounded that there hasn’t been a peep from Gruber about the problems and inconsistencies in the Mac App Store application, and those of the apps sold on it. My first experience with the Mac App Store was a purchase of the new Twitter app, of which Gruber had this to say:

You have an inherent need to solve problems, visually and conceptually. There is enormous value in this, but you may be misplacing your talents.

The internet, at this time in history, is the greatest client assignment of all time. The Western world is porting itself over to the web in mind and…

Pin Pres is a kid’s room shelf that makes the act of sorting up the room a playful experience where the shelf adopts its form to the toys, books and other things that are being stored.
Its the only shelf that will make your kid actually want to clean up and declutter the room!
Pin Pres has won Josep Ros furniture design competition.

1. What do you propose to do? [20 words]

Use participatory design to reinvent Shareable, an information hub about sharing and the sharing economy. Shareable 2.0 will be more transparent, participatory, and continuously co-created by its community.

2. Is anyone doing something like this now…

Wow.
In other news: Tumblr Android 2.0.2 is published and working its way through the marketplace.
For those of you on older phones who couldn’t upload photos, that should be working now.
There were also reports that the reblog screen wouldn’t switch to landscape mode.  That’s also now fixed.
I’m seeing people are having trouble logging in (invalid email and password errors).  If you’re typing your email and password correctly and still getting errors, please contact support@tumblr.com and we’ll get you squared away.
I’ve also seen folks having trouble launching the app.  The workaround is to uninstall and reinstall the application after-which everything should be great.  However, I’d like to stomp that issue out once and for all so if you’re seeing it, please ‘ask’ me to help you here or get in touch with support@tumblr.com.
We’re working on things like: Landscape modes for the dashboard, moving the app to the SD card, speeding up loading times, and making the app honeycomb compatible.
I, personally, am keeping an eye on reviews, comments, and issues.  Please don’t hesitate to contact me if you’re having trouble… or if you just want to say hi.

I’m really rooting for Google.

I believe in Android as a bulwark against iPhone’s greedy closed system of iTunes and its hypocritically Orwellian “freedom from porn” (and its “we’ve already solved podcasts” (and its love of Hitler (and its intolerance for satire))). (Plus Android’s Gmail,…

Four months with Android: reflections, grievances and some tenuous metaphors bundled up into a weighty tome

dinnerwithandroid:

OR, The longest, most awkward dinner of my life

tl;dr version: I’m really glad to have an iPhone 4S.

(Note: this was written over multiple days, spaced weeks apart.)

I approached this experiment with a lot of questions, the primary of which was quite simple: why do people use Android? I had my own preconceived answers — they dislike Apple or couldn’t get an iPhone for one reason or another — but I dove in with an open mind regardless. After over four months of Android 2.3 on a Nexus S, I’m left mostly answerless.

That’s not to say I didn’t learn a lot. I have a solid grasp of what makes Android Android, the ins-and-outs of the OS, and, yes, there are even a few really great features I will miss as I transition back to iOS.

But at the end of the day I’m left with mostly a bad taste in my mouth. What follows is a summation of four months exclusively using Android. They’re my opinions. I’m not trying to sway anyone away from the platform, and I’m not looking to troll Android fanboys. I am but one man who likes stupid gadgets and decided to conduct a dumb experiment. Let’s go.
