I've ranted before about Google's long game; see Google's Endgame. I 2011, I predicted that Google was aiming at a unified user interface. I was partially right. Google is still aiming at a unified UI, but their goals are going so much deeper than that. I just wiped my cell phone, and the experience gave me a taste of the future, Google style.

I don't think you realize just how awesome Beethoven's 9th really is. Beethoven was a rebel in his day - the original punk rocker - and he broke so many rules with his 9th Symphony it's amazing they didn't take away his baton. (Actually they did; he co-conducted the first performance of the 9th but the "real" conductor told the orchestra to ignore Beethoven.)

I am still a lawyer, even if I don't act like it much any more. But I have a client right now, a criminal defendant, and it's time to write a motion. I haven't written a motion in three years; my new laptop is set up for web design, not legal practice. But this was one of those skills that was beaten into me very effectively, so I know what I need.

For once, I'm not talking about the island; I'm talking about the new show. The premise: In 1963 the prison closed and all the prisoners were transfered. "Only, that's not what happened." Now, they're coming back, and the team dedicated to finding them is made up of one corrections officer, one inexperienced-yet-plucky cop, and an overweight comic book nerd.

It seems like this is becoming a common refrain on the internet. Let me preface it by saying that they're still better than AT&T DSL - I canceled that shit after one week, and I've been putting up with Comcast for over two years now. But I'm getting more and more sick of their abysmal customer service.
