Lol. From Adobe's website: "Layout and design remain fixed no matter the screen size." #featurenotabug@shribr @geoffreyfowler Case in point: Windows supports "native HTML5 apps". But Chrome doesn't need to support Windows apps. +1 for Chrome.@shribr @geoffreyfowler I'm more interested in #Chrome (the browser) and #Android than in ChromeOS. It's all about where applications run.@bdeeter All good technology will be used for bad things. Nukes… drones… artificial intelligence… animated GIFs. Sigh.@smistephen We know the OS is irrelevant on PCs. Not true for mobile, but it will be. So homogenizing the OS across devices = more agility.$MSFT's vision for the integration of smartphone, tablet and PC is correct. But it feels like $GOOG is closer to doing it right, for now.@skonnard You can't move us over, but you can definitely have some of our capital. We have way too much anyway.
Difficult to give Mr. Obama much credit for his stance on #MarriageEquality. He's a turncoat; courts did all the work http://t.co/bvu3UsWanq
People forget that leadership is to management what kicking is to soccer. It is a higher accolade to be a great manager: it implies results.@bznotes Yeah, @elonmusk is doin' the Twitters right. Even his follow list has a sense of humor.When your spouse is also at work at 9:30 pm and replies to your tweet about being at work with the suggestion to go home… #MarriageEqualityWhen you are at your desk working away and you suddenly realize it became 9:30 pm… good or bad?Chinese food fail. @michaelbauer1 lambastes Crystal Jade in SF. Sadly, he was right. We were very disappointed. http://t.co/x5pKdYt0kA@bradneuberg I think @voxdotcom swerves from clickbait to in-depth coverage. It's too bad, because I'm increasingly reluctant to click.@destraynor At least, I'm 90% sure that's right.@destraynor We should talk about startups in terms of "expected value" instead of "odds of failure." More interesting and more informative.@pmarca I wasn’t alive in ’79, but given that I was born in early ’80, I'm pretty sure my parents were enjoying themselves.@craigbuj Stretch that graph out to 2020 for me, would you please?2/2 Larry Summers, love him or hate him, always argues with data. http://t.co/pXD2xZfl9k1/2 "With a 1979 income distribution, the bottom 80% of the pop'n would have $1T—or $11k/family—more. Top 1% $1 trillion—or $750k—less." Wow$FB is as much a "social network company" as $IBM is a "computer hardware company." Yet those are what Google search returns as descriptors.@gigaom 10 times what?@ed_lea Einstein forgot how much context was often needed in brain of the listener as a prerequisite to explaining something simply.The difference between a software application and a #robot is that the latter acts directly on physical, rather than virtual, variables.Loving your job is overrated, but caring about what you do matters.

Only @nprnews tweeted of "tax changes" and not "tax hikes" or "tax cuts" today. Bravo. POTUS is doing both and opinions will differ. Widely.@genechansf Why? Are you learning Sinhala?

Retweeted by Matt MacInnis@_sunilrawat I can see a logic for both predictions. But I'm a business guy; not as brilliant as economists at predicting the future. ;-)@_sunilrawat Would it not be logical that, if you think you can predict a black swan, it's by definition not a black swan? (cc @nntaleb)@_sunilrawat No, but it quite literally means that they'll theoretically charge you to leave your money on deposit with them.Our cartoonists respond, with their pencils, to the #CharlieHebdo attack: http://t.co/Kbqkut0wrq http://t.co/DVNuVZTmMr

I loved the Grand Budapest Hotel!@pdacosta @pmarca The uncap decision is a quintessential Black Swan of @nntalebUncapping of the Swiss Franc shows the long term unpredictable effects of drastic manipulations of interest rates and "quantitative easing."Currency exchange rates are like a taut mesh of elastic strings. When an inelastic string in the mesh suddenly gives, everything wobbles…Wow. Swiss Franc was cut loose vs Euro.

But…Per the Pew study, the only congressperson brave enough to say she's religiously unaffiliated is @kyrstensinema. #atheism20% of Americans are religiously "unaffiliated," versus only 0.2% of congress. 0.2% is one person. http://t.co/7BEBJUHMPDIn my job as a CEO, I have learned that, to succeed, I can give only a few fucks here and there. http://t.co/WPxF8LMjRh via @brianmirving@danrosenheck Wow!

I am so moved by the strength and good humor of the response to the #ParisAttacks. The next cover of the magazine is perfect! #JeSuisCharlie@realmistergray I'm also seeing a 500 on #DropBox right now. Bummer!@bradneuberg @schwa Publicly shamed for not replying to emails. Tsk tsk.
