Overall, I really like the interaction improvements in iOS 7.1; however, I don’t care for the springboard/jQuery easing of the control center. It feels cheap, not a surprise and delight Apple UI special.
State Sen. Brian Nieves doesn’t think lawyers or the courts have the only right to determine whether a federal law is constitutional.
It’s a state’s right circle jerk in the Missouri Legislature!
If this gets on the ballot, I sincerely hope that it is roundly defeated, and then the Supreme Court of the United States legalizes same-sex marriage just to see these bigots and mouth-breathers like Brian Nieves’ head explode.
Missouri sucks pretty bad sometimes. This is one of those times.
I kind of want one. If anything, it would be fun to play with.

The We The People online petition page at whitehouse.gov presents a captcha challenge question that’s probably too difficult for most adults, as written.
33, 84 or 69: the highest is?
If the developers and designers of this website were serious about getting users to execute this account creation process with minimal errors, perhaps they should have worded the question as follows to reduce the cognitive load:
Which number is the highest? 33, 84, or 69?
Also, embrace the Oxford Comma. That would help a lot.
Late to the linking party, but this is a pretty good read from people who I admire in the world of type and design.
Personally, I think the change is great. It should make reading nutritional labels easier, hopefully leading to better diets and a healthier America.
Shitty write-up from CNN, but still sad news.
I logged into the web version of Facebook today and was greeted with this lovely message:
Stephen, we want to let you know about an upcoming change to your Facebook email address: email@example.com.
When someone sends you an email at that address, it will no longer go to your Messages on Facebook. Instead, the email will be forwarded to the primary email address on your account: firstname.lastname@example.org
We’re making this change because most people haven’t been using their Facebook email addresses, and we wanted to make it easier to view all your emails in one place. Plus, we can focus on improving our mobile messaging experience for everyone.
First, I had a @facebook.com email address? Wow. I remember a while ago when this launched and was the default display for everyone; I changed it immediately because WTF.
Second, the reasoning behind the forwarding of messages is pretty weak tea. I’m glad they want a place for me to view all of my messages, but there is no setting (that I’ve been able to find, at least) to disable the auto-forwarding.
So, let’s say you want to send someone unsolicited email. Facebook just made it stupid simple:
- Find someone’s Facebook profile. It’s ok if you aren’t even friends with this person or they locked their profile! Just to test this out, I typed in Facebook.com/JohnSmith144; Facebook redirected me to /john.smith.144
- Send a new message to email@example.com and have it auto-forward to John’s primary email address.
Thanks for that.
