I made some delightful wallpaper for my Emmy-winning Simpsons fansite… no way to know for sure, I believe this may be the third piece of Just Stamp the Ticket Guy fan art in the whole world…
Wasn’t The Dark Knight Rises written and pre-produced months before Occupy Wall Street? I’m sure there was influence during the production stages – they contemplated using actual Occupy protestors as extras for the movie’s protest scene(s) in late 2011 – but every review I’ve read seems to treat the movie like it was made as Christopher Nolan’s Direct Response to the Occupy Movement
I mean this without irony… this is the best comic about Facebook I’ve ever seen. Only a strip like Blondie could do such an effective job capturing the dorkiness of middle-aged people using Facebook and chatspeak
Still kinda wonder what it would’ve been like had Microsoft acquired Yahoo!… would Microsoft’s online services division still be in the red? Would Yahoo! still be in disarray? Would Bing exist? Would they figure out how to sort all the many, many redundancies between Yahoo!/MSN?1 Since Microsoft would now own Yahoo! News, would they sell their stake in msnbc.com to NBCUniversal or try to juggle both? These are the kind of questions that keep me up at night.
1 The easiest way, I think, would be to make Yahoo! the brand for content (News, Sports, Finance, etc.) and MSN the brand for services (Skydrive, Maps, Calendar, etc.) instead of that stupid “Windows Live” stuff.
One imagines that Google might choose to launch a Nexus Two, then even a Nexus Three. What if the company goes so far as to launch a sixth in the Nexus series? Would [Philip K.] Dick’s family then merit a call from Google? Or would they call it Nexus Seven and claim that six was the company’s unlucky number?
I liked iGoogle… it was neat getting all my Google services (Gmail, Reader, Calendar, Bookmarks, News, Chat) in one place… if there had been a good Twitter widget I could’ve just left iGoogle in a tab all day and it would’ve been awesome. Farewell old friend… sixteen months from now…

Alan Moore watches 30 Rock, apparently.
