Matte Cars, Google Now, Penguins-Bruins

I got that Q5 on dubs. OE dubs, but still: dubs. There’s a Maserati owner near me who keeps driving his ride down the street when I walk my dog in the morning. This is mostly notable because his car is painted matte black. I don’t know why peeps do this – when you go […]

The One Swear Word That Still Shocks Me, NFL Week 13 Picks, Yahoo! Fantasy Outage, Mobile Quotability

I can’t stop eating pomegranate seeds lately. Beautiful AND delicious – like a haggis. I’ve clearly been desensitized to foul language in my day, because the only word that still genuinely shocks me is “c—“. (Not the one that rhymes with “rock”.) I can barely even type the dashes without recoiling. This must be because […]

The Best Word in the English Language, Stop Saying “Broads”, Flipboard News, Awesome Couscous

Instagram and Foursquare: Together, They Kinda Make Sense Now

With last week’s release of Android Instagram — catalyst of mass monocle-dropping by iOS elitists — I’ve taken to Instagram in a way I never would have if I were still limited to homebound iPad pics of my dog and an empty beer glass. The app also made it easy for me to kickstart what […]

Pat’s 16 Best Android Apps

Not too long ago, I was admittedly indifferent to this mobile thing, even as a professional digital dude. This was because: I had BlackBerrys for work and found them useful but nothing revolutionary; I mistakenly chalked the iPhone hype up to characteristic Apple-fan hyperventilation; I stuck to my old clamshell phone because I’m really cheap. […]
