I don’t know how most people use twitter, but I personally use it to keep up on the news, technology, and possibly meet new people. Anyone I follow, I usually read what you tweet, I consider my timeline, something that I read in its entirety, one at a time. People who follow more than 100 accounts on twitter either follow low volume tweeters, have tons of free time to keep up with it, or don’t read all of the tweets in their timeline. I can usually do a decent job of keeping up with it as long as its under 400-500 per day. If it excedes that I start unfollowing or muting any bullshit that I don’t care about.
If its bullshit RTs from someone I would never interact with anyways, I’ll Block them, if its sports or something I can easily mute with a keyword, I’ll do that. If you’re a tech blogger and you start tweeting about sports, I couldn’t care less, either make another account or use a hashtag.

This machine allows anyone to work for minimum wage for as long as they like. Turning the crank on the side releases one penny every 4.97 seconds, for a total of $7.25 per hour. This corresponds to minimum wage for a person in New York. This piece is brilliant on multiple levels, particularly as social commentary. Without a doubt, most people who started operating the machine for fun would quickly grow disheartened and stop when realizing just how little they’re earning by turning this mindless crank. A person would then conceivably realize that this is what nearly two million people in the United States do every day…at much harder jobs than turning a crank. This turns the piece into a simple, yet effective argument for raising the minimum wage.

I’ve been using apple’s iOS devices since 2.1.1 when I got my first iPod touch, and then the 4th gen iPod touch right after my local target got the 32gb in stock, then my iPhone 4 ~18 moths ago and now with the iPad mini. At first I was running stock iOS but being someone who likes to tinker and customize everything I tried out jail breaking and couldn’t stay away very long. I’m usually on the latest untethered version of iOS so if I have to be without some features then so be it, I think 3.x was the last firmware that I wanted bad enough to go vanilla on besides just being short of time to jailbreak.
Apple has slowly been chipping away at the list of things that I can only get from jail breaking, the few remaining things are:
-Theming, some icons are either so ugly or just so different, I can’t stand them, also, having everything match or be similar just looks so nice, also, folders look like shit, I don’t know how Steve allowed that to happen, I theme my folder backgrounds to be transparent so that the tiny icons are just on the springboard.
-Infinifolders, I can’t stand having multiple folders with the same types of apps(games, utilities, etc)
-Gridlock, I like having open spaces on my springboard
-being able to change songs with the volume buttons
-being able to make the screen darker than normally allowed.
My vote is going to who ever is going to cut my taxes, increase taxes for the rich, keep shit like SOPA and PIPA from getting passed, and fuck up everything else the least.
Everyone saying Obama made it worse or fucked up, no, congress and the house fucked shit up, the republicans were acting like children(granted that’s just how the system works) saying either you do it our way or not at all.
I’m not saying Obama is perfect, he shouldn’t have bailed out wall street, not without having it by the balls indefinitely.
Speaking of wall street, I’m not saying we need to regulate it into the ground, but something needs to be done, having computers trading millions and billions of stocks in a fraction of a second, needs to be stopped. There is no legitimate reason that needs to be done, there needs to be a minimum hold time for stocks, now I’m no financial wiz but I’d say at least a week, the whole point of stocks is to invest in a company, you can’t lend someone $20 for 60 seconds and then ask for it back and expect that it should have done any good.
