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!

SXSW Interactive is coming to a close, but SXSW Music is just getting started. Start planning which free parties you want to go to with our free Thinx Drinks app.

I already have the Tumblr meet-ups on my list. I hope to see you at one of them!

SXSWi has been pretty amazing (and exhausting) so far. Hope the drone swarms are clear of the area for the Tumblr meet-up.

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.

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!

Now you can really suck like a real robot in the new “Rooma Revenge” game for the iPhone.

Siri VS Furby (by awarehead)

My new recurring nightmare: Siri and Furby joining forces. Game over, man! Game over!

This is what it’s come to: love songs about sentient intelligent personal assistants. What’s even more depressing about Jonathan Mann's song, “A Duet with Siri,” is that Siri ends up lecturing our paramour that she's “incapable of love.” Still, this is pretty darned adorable.
