  • Just finished a phone interview with @jimlee00 and John Rood about DC Comics' digital directions. After dinner there will be much typing. #
  • My job isn't like yours. I mean, today, did you open a FedEx box and find yourself wondering why Geek Squad sent you beef jerky? #
  • First workday with the office windows open. I feel like birds will flitter in and hand me the DVD-R I need, like I'm Snow White. #
  • Stupid damned Skype has locked up on me…desperately trying to fix for the show!!! #
  • The irony is, i cant force quit it while TWiT is calling me, & they won't stop calling because I should have been there 10 min ago! #

  • I say this with sincerity: "Jackass 2" isn't a better movie than "Network," but it has a much smarter and more solid ending. #
  • CSS design would be a less irritating if it DIDN'T turn out that the root of every baffling problem was a dumb mistake I made. #

    Hi Andy,

    I’m a big fan, and regular MBW listener.

    So … I emailed Steve (Jobs), thinking my question might be worthy of a reply from Mt. Olympus, but sadly the turtlenecked one has not deigned to respond … so I shall ask you, a tech demi-god:

    Will Apple release an iPhone version of iBooks which would allow us to read on the iPhone and ’round trip’ our reading between devices after syncing with iTunes, the way we can with Audiobooks and Podcasts?

    Muchas gracias, Señor!
