A comment on the AppleCare...

A comment on the AppleCare discussion: Do get the AppleCare! Seriously. I don't think I'd get it for a desktop or screen or pretty much anything else, but for a laptop: definitely. If anything fries/dies in a laptop, chances are that you'll need a new logic board. And the cost for that is pretty much the same as buying a new laptop. I am speaking from painful experience, both my own and that of friends. It is totally worth it.

And there is no benefit in getting it towards the end of your 1 year warranty. The end date only depends on the purchase date of the laptop.

This is an essay about family, priorities, and Shakey’s Pizza, and it’s probably the best thing he’s written. »

Scared Shitless

Merlin’s scared. You’re scared. Everybody is scared.

This is the video of Merlin’s keynote at Webstock 2011. The one where he cried. You should watch it. »
