Apple (or someone) really needs to come up with a reverse-lookup phone book. The majority of calls I get at home are from suspicious numbers. Google used to do it with a simple phone number search, but some Chicken Littles whined about privacy so Google removed most of the functionality. Maybe Truecaller is the answer. Maybe. The taking a screenshot thing seems burdensome.
Who Originally Said “I’m Not A Doctor, But I Play One on TV“? I watched the show back then, and still didn’t remember.
The reason people hate airlines, and especially United, is because the gate attendants simply aren’t always nice. I was on my way to Dallas last week and got to the airport early. I walked up to the departure gate as an earlier flight was leaving and asked if I could get on that fight. Not one of the three ladies behind the (not at all busy) desk looked at me or acknowledged my inquiry. I thought maybe they didn’t hear me, so in a minute or so I asked again, nicely. Nothing. Eventually, one of them started typing away on her computer. A few minutes later, she finally looked at me and said she’d put me on standby. All I needed was a glance and some sort of response (yes, no, maybe) to be satisfied. What I got was the sense that I was bothering them.
I was relatively late to the Oxford comma. But I generally follow that approach now.
This is exactly why I have never acted on my recurring urge to switch to a standing desk.
Yeah, I’m thinking Facebook’s Paper app is on the Google+ trajectory of use adoption. I tried it. I deleted it.
Not recommended: Three times I have tried to use an Eye-Fi card. Three times I have tossed them in the trashcan, irritated by the user-unfriendly, non-intuitive interface. There is no way I am going to go through that sort of hell again just to create more cloud space, when Google and Amazon( AWS) are almost giving it away.
They aren’t that hard to swat. If you have a fly swatter.
