Crap. Hard crash, now MacBook Air shows boot-screen and then shuts down. Cloning SSD from Recovery before freaking out.
Crazy idea: adopt car year pricing model. YourApp™ 2013 sold full price initially, then discount when YourApp™ 2014 is coming.
Pricing is always hard; but exposure to: mega markets, global competition and discoverability challenges make App Store’s very interesting.
App Store operators are concentrating on volume, so complexities like paid upgrades are not desired. It’s up to devs to figure out model.
But low prices in digital goods are perceived differently by consumers. Apps now are either expensive or cheap. Value has been left out.
Software prices in App Store’s need a readjustment. The need to stand-out in crowded virtual shelf space has driven devs to lower prices.
Crap, no unlocked 5s in online US Store.

Given the past 5 days, I hope to recognize the tech industry when I come back.

Party Buses: two things that make me throw-up independently —moving vehicles and alcohol— combined for maximum effect.
Done with A Storm of Swords. Good, but not as great as previous two.
Going to take a break into SciFi and then come back.
Somedays I looks at myself in the mirror and can’t help but wonder … why didn’t I add haircut to my tasks list sooner?

It amuses me to know Chavez uses this US based, venture capitalist financed, web service to manage his communist revolution.

Corrección del tweet anterior: no estas en una humanidad unida por el destino … estas en una cola de mierda llena de coño de madres toditos.
Sé positivo: no estas en trafico, estas en una inmensa caravana de graduación del colegio de la vida.
“Se le notifica a nuestra distinguida clientela …” es sinónimo de “Miren coño e’ madres …”
You know what they say about guys with big LED displays …
Which is how I know geeks are not as cool as we think we are.
I truly don’t completely understand any of the above.
Uno a veces no sabe si es serio o aburrido.

Angry drivers with Christian bumper stickers reassure me I won’t be alone in hell.
I will be less surprised though.
If you fail to grasp the importance of extending my WiFi … I can now tweet from the bathroom.
Just extended my WRT-54g WiFi range with new Airport Express via WDS.
I feel like a MAN.
Also, a bit annoyed that none of the kids wearing these sneaker boots don’t get my Back to the Future jokes.
Only reason I’ve noticed that Reebok boots are making a comeback is ’cause my brain keeps saying “Recalculating decade” every few hours.
Airport security checkpoints take so long that you can easily workout the process. That must be a security concern in itself.
If Pawn Stars has taught me anything, is that ending a negotiation meeting with a quick “No” … will never be followed by a commercial.

Nowadays you’ll hear: “Going on vacation, but I’ll be online”.
Ok. Last one, but you aren’t going to believe this:
Fuchsia is not a Brazilian singer, it’s actually a synonym for Magenta!
Turns out that Magenta is ALSO A COLOR (and not just a manly way to say pink).
We need tougher color naming laws.
I’ve just been told that “beige” is an actual color, and not a conglomerate of lesser know ones.

Feel more pervert than usual.
Very sure the next world war will start because somebody left an empty carton of milk on the fridge.
When the flying insect makes a noticeable shadow, it’s time to get the heck out of there.

Somehow heading to an office doesn’t seem like a well thought out plan.
Like a Pixar movie, the iPad is quickly developing two plots: a simple touch and go UI, and a powerful gesture language for pro-users.
Finally playing with MacAppStore and Tweetie 2.
I finished reading Peter F. Hamilton’s Void Triology last night.
Pure Sci-Fi space opera. But still the most fun reading of #2010.
If you’ve ever read Sci-Fi short stories from the 60’s, the time to start freaking out is right about … now. #2011

Not artsy enough for today’s concert at Blå. All I hear is static and echo.
“the simplest explanation is usually the right one” vs. “things aren’t always what they seem”. My brain needs a strategy meeting.

Some emails can knock your air out.
Really beautiful day in Oslo. Brain keeps saying “Must go out!”, body answers: “check the temperature, you dense grey goo”.
About to see in 3D how deep the rabbit hole goes.

Previous tweet misunderstood. Not ↓, just making a peculiar joke. Anyways, #ERP’it.
If I don’t have the skills to fill my competence skills in the #ERP system, should I just take the hint?
Cold, dark and snowy. IPod shuffle playlist just turned suicidal. What an #ERP walk home.

Keep thinking that is trying to tell us what we don’t wanna hear:
Humans are the ones that can’t multitask.
There should never be a Sync button on an App. It’s either an option that’s enabled and works in the background, or it’s useless.
Could the iPad’s 3G weird Micro Sim be more about an iPod touch 3G?
Maybe is segmenting 3G: iPhone (voice), iPad/iPod/MacBook (data)
Remember to reset your iPhone if it’s acting up. It may put a strong face, but it still has a desktop OS inside.

Twitter should have a friday night filter. The norwegian tweets I’m seeing are similar to the Venezuelan and east coast tweets I’ll soon see
Every time I say “it’s snowing, it’s snowing. God I hate this weather”, I’m quoting a Fointains of Wayne song. Don’t feel bad Oslo.

Back in Oslo. Turkey was great. Need to go trough 1000+ pics to make something shareable.
Sarps b-day party was incre-wait for it-dible. Headache is a reminder of the good times.
Leaving for turkey! I think I figured out how we can make nano CPU processors. Will tweet when I land.

Took hard drive out. It’s dead alright. Sounds like an old 14.4 modem trying to connect. I think I have original one somewhere.
Media center MacBook just died. Looks like hard drive is fried, then I’ll take this in stride. It’s not true I cried. Word.
Rework took a bit longer than expected, but happy with the results. Let’s see what the rest of the team thinks.

Yikes. It has been actually 6 years since Reloaded! They must be right: Time heals everything.
5 years after watching it (twice) in theaters, The Matrix Reloaded still does not deserve to be called a sequel. Great F/X. Bland world.

rum with iced tea makes the clouds go away. And also smile like a bloody idiot.
Had whale steak last weekend and elk burgers last night. If trend continues, will probably have fried puppies by summer’s end.
Rainy day in Oslo. Not that Norwegians notice.
Hmm. My “trick” to use • in front of some playlist names (• Latest podcasts) to keep them on top, doesn’t work in OS 3.0.

Back at work. Lots of it.
Hmm. Surprising how a little a little rum on the iced tea helps with video editing creativity.
Weird, twitpic points to another pic than the one I took. This could potentially be scary.
Really liked the Star Trek movie. Surprised how they managed to balance 6 TV series and 10 movies and keep it a good blockbuster.
