  • I scored 6353 points playing #QRANK Can you beat that? http://bit.ly/b8lZZu #
  • @lisah you had to pick it up on site that day, but luckily I had a friend (@jkuramot) who was able to pick it up for me. πŸ™‚ in reply to lisah #
  • @dhohndel I'll stop sharing those. My policy is to do it sparingly, and stop when someone complains. πŸ™‚ in reply to dhohndel #
  • I'm willing to pay $5 to try Wired's iPad app. If anyone can do this right, it's them. But I'm not willing to pay $5 per issue ad infinitum. #
  • .@Doctorow has a good point about the future of "interactive" magazines like Wired on iPad: They cost as much as a feature film to produce. #
  • I have no idea how mags like Wired are going to make enough money to keep producing 527MB interactive wonders every month. Wish 'em luck! #
  • I'm not trying to be snarky about the future of "digital magazines". It's a real and fascinating problem. #
  • Something I hate about the dead-tree version of Wired: tons and tons of ads. Something I already hate about the iPad version: same. πŸ™ #
  • Thinking about the publications subscribe to. $5/month to @ArsTechnica because they're awesome. @MakeZine. Fray. That's about it… #
  • Navigating Wired on iPad is really confusing. Swipe left and right, except some pages also scroll up and down. Tiny disappearing scrollbars. #
  • Wired on iPad: Tapped a link to go to a story elsewhere in the mag? Good luck getting back to where you were. #
  • RT @chr1sa: For all asking about Wired iPad app pricing, it will evolve as we build new ecommerce methods. Freemium is in our future πŸ˜‰ #
  • I'm excited for the move away from tree corpse media – don't take my nit picking about Wired the wrong way. I critique because I care. πŸ™‚ #
  • RT @nevenmrgan: The other issue: Wired overdesigns their articles, so it's hard to tell at a glance what's an ad and what's a story. #
  • Guy in Gresham sees some dudes stealing iPhones, so he pulls out his gun, tries to shoot their tires out as they flee: http://j.mp/9hAxka #
