Farewell, Internet (Download Squad)

Apr 12th 2011 12:24PM Can someone post a list of those twitter accounts mentioned in the article? The ones for the writers of Download Squad?

Google Chrome changes its logo... again! (pictures) (Download Squad)

Mar 25th 2011 2:20PM I liked the old one quite a bit. The new one? Notsomuch.

Apple plans software fix for iPhone 4 reception problems (Download Squad)

Jun 26th 2010 9:20AM ...except that it's not left-handed people who are affected, it's those who hold the phone in their left hand while telephoning, which is typically true of right-handed people.

2010 Subaru Legacy 2.5GT: May 2010 (Autoblog)

Jun 4th 2010 12:59AM As an '05 Outback owner... every time I see what's become of the Outback/Legacy body styling, I die a little bit on the inside. Awful.

in design, the Outback's looks like every other pavement-bound sport utility, as opposed to the "go anywhere" wagon it used to be, and the Legacy has lost all of it's sport feeling, becoming just another blah, cookie cutter sedan.

Oh quirky cool Subaru... where have you gone?

Scrabble for the iPad: stir in some iPhones and it's the best $1,000 you ever spent on a board game (Engadget)

Apr 4th 2010 9:47PM Not surprised about the lost game issues. The Scrabble app for the iPhone is embarrassingly buggy, as well as being so user hostile I hate myself every time I launch it (despite having paid for it, and loving the game of Scrabble itself). EA should be ashamed. There are 13 year olds writing better iPhone apps.

'The Vampire Diaries' and Microsoft team up, try to add 'Binged' to the lexicon (Engadget)

Mar 26th 2010 10:26PM @Wolfticket - This is, and has been, very common. About a decade ago I did some web development for deBeers leading ad agency*. I remember the ad agency talking about how they paid quite a bit of money to have the characters in Melrose Place discuss the fact that you should spend two months salary on a diamond ring, going so far as to pay them to have a character utter their tagline about making "two months salary last forever."
*actually, the agency worked for some kind of diamond marketing council, because deBeers wasn't allowed to operate in the US at the time due to monopoly laws.

Fusion Garage CrunchPad video conference liveblog (Engadget)

Dec 7th 2009 1:44PM Ooops, I meant "...brought nothing to the party, but would we even be..."

Fusion Garage CrunchPad video conference liveblog (Engadget)

Dec 7th 2009 1:43PM I know he says Arrington bright noting to the party, but we we even be talking about this thing if it weren't for him? Not defending him, I don't really care either way, just seems that without Arrington's evangelism, and without all the controversy, this wouldn't have gotten nearly so much attention from the gadget blogs, maybe a post or two on launch day.
