Quartz is another great example of using e-mail effectively. Reading their "Daily Brief" is now the first thing I do when I wake up every day.

Apple paid a dividend in August and November. These are not special dividends - the March announcement clearly stated that this is a continuing quarterly dividend.

I believe you're correct on the other points though - trying to assign causality to every little swing of the market is a fool's game.

Dear PD,

 

Please don't ever do this again. I respect you too much to use caps-lock or profanity, but please don't ever do this again. I thought your mission was to be the site of record for Silicon Valley. This is just pissing all over that mission.

The problem of international travel and 2-factor authentication with Google is already easily solved. 1. Use the Google Authenticator app, anywhere you have wi-fi or 3G. 2. Print the 10 codes that allow you one-time access and keep them somewhere safe. Personally, I keep one set in my wallet (I altered the numbers with a simple algorithm that I can remember so that someone stealing my wallet would probably think its useless), and one set in the safe at my parents' house.

Great piece! Thank you for writing about Canada's start-ups, since the entire country of Canada is usually easily forgotten (especially by tech blogs). It's articles like this that keep me checking PD every day.

Finally. An article on internet and culture and that doesn't hyperbolize everything. Thank you.

oh and as for Notification Center, they could definitely take a few hints from Clear about how to make a nice gesture-driven UI without all the visual clutter and tiny X buttons.

 

and extra widgets besides Stocks and Weather would be so helpful. I'd love to have a Wifi On/Off and Bluetooth On/Off widget.

I'll agree that multitasking definitely needs an overhaul. Having a long sliding row of icons that are identical to the home screen icons feels useless to me. It might save you a split second while switching apps, but functionally it does the same thing as just going back to the home screen and clicking the other app you want.

 

I've seen a mock-up somewhere where the multitasking view would be a Mission Control/Expose style cluster of windows, showing you what the apps were last doing. It would overlay on top of the screen, and give you a real full view of the recently running apps. I like that idea, especially for the iPad where the little multitasking tray seems like it was lifted from the iPhone without considering if it really made sense on a much larger screen.

Considering that "it was not made available in my country," and that I live in Canada, it seems like TNT missed a step on how to make it viral: let me freaking watch it.That said, I did hunt it down elsewhere on the internet and it's a damn good commercial.
