Watching this clip by Big Lazy Robot makes me think robots and humans might not be so different. I, for one, hope Santa brings me an iPad Air for Christmas this year!

NYC, are you ready for this? 

Found out last night that I got accepted to Apple’s Tech Talk event in New York next month, so now I know what Charlie must have felt like when he opened that bar of chocolate. I can’t wait! Oh, and did I mention that this is right when we are also moving to NYC and beta testing our new app? Yes, that IS how we roll here. If any other developers are planning to be there, it would be great to have some kind of meetup. Fan mail, ask, or DM on Twitter if you’re interested. 

Oh, and who’s that stylish devil in the lower-right corner? That would be yours truly at an impressionable young age first learning to love/fear technology.

SXSW is right around the corner and—if the robots don’t rise up to destroy us first—it looks like this year might be the busiest yet (including a few Tumblr events). My wife and I created an iPhone app called Thinx Drinks to keep track of all the unofficial parties and day shows going on and to help get around the city during the festival. If you’re coming to Austin for SXSW, it’s available free from the App Store. And let us know if you’ll be around, we’d love to meet up with you. 

staceythinx:

As some of you might know, my husband and I live in Austin. One of the great things about living in Austin is that you can take advantage of all the fun stuff that surrounds SXSW every spring. Last year we designed a mobile site to help us get around all the free parties and unofficial events that were going on and it was so helpful we thought that this year we’d share it with everybody as a full-blown mobile app. We’re really proud to announce that Thinx Drinks is now available in the iTunes App Store and its totally free!

Some of the app features:

  • Nearby feature shows all the parties and events near your current location, plotted on a map for easy navigation.
  • Browse events by date or use the searchable database to find events by name, band, or venue.
  • The My Parties feature lets you mark your favorites for quick reference later.
  • RSVP from many events from within the app.
  • Other features include social media and iOS Calendar integration. The app syncs to information stored the cloud to give you up-to-date listings.

I hope you find it as helpful as we do and hopefully I’ll see some of you around town!

Rumor: Next iPhone said to ditch glass for Liquidmetal, arrive in June

Now wait, is Liquidmetal the same material the T-1000 was made from? OMG, APPLE IS MAKING A TERMINATOR PHONE!

Can buying a new iPad help prevent the inevitable robot uprising? It certainly couldn’t hurt.

Siri, you naughty robot ;)

See, I told you robots are inherently evil.
