I came across this new store on Fulton Street this morning. The design reminded me of elements of the Apple Store.

Is The iPad Mini An Elaborate Chinese Hoax?

Something occurred to me last night.

This: iPad Mini drawings reveal design details: 7-inch screen, thin design, and 19 pin connector confirmed

So many people were convinced that this proved an iPad Mini was on its way.

But just what the hell is that?

Twitter Took Our Tweets And Now Takes Our Images

Go past a certain date or an unknown number of images and you can’t get access to your own property any longer!

I had many images that were uploaded before August 17th. Yet this is the last image I now have access to.

What is Twitter playing at here?

We’re being forced to use only Twitter for images — to complete “the Twitter experience” — and now we can’t have access to all of them?

TwitPic never pulled this on me! I still have access to everything there.

The more crap like this Twitter pulls, the more inviting app.net is beginning to seem.

As it is, I’m copying all my remaining images over to TwitPic so I can access them at will. Too bad for users if they’ll have to click through to an URL now to see them.

Same-day update: In the process of copying all my images to move to TwitPic, I now get this:


Click = big

Do you really want to trust Twitter with your images?

I will use TwitPic from now on.

Second same-day update: Twitter has a media partnership with WordPress. By reactivating a dormant blog, I can now post a photo there and it will still appear in-column in Twitter. So I have found a backdoor that lets me screw Twitter out of my images. This is so Win.

China Selling Dummy iPad Mini For US$13

So this explains why the screen on the photos of the “iPad Mini” from yesterday didn’t look exactly kosher. It was a dummy!

We’ve been punk’d by people who knew all along they were dummy units!

See the video after the break.

Occupy Wall Street: Year Two, Day One

Via Timcast, Bishop Packard in flexicuffs, arrested for sitting on the sidewalk in protest near Wall Street yesterday:

More Than 180 Arrested on Occupy Wall Street’s First Anniversary

Occupy is right. The protest must be non-violent. And it has been. All the shameful violence has been on the part of the NYPD.
