Verizon/Sprint should use statements from this filing in their advertisements!

I'm graduating in less than 2 weeks. Interesting thoughts, but not really awe-inspiring or life-changing. Maybe that is THE message.

I graduated a year early and started working for Microsoft almost immediately. Now, staring 30 in the face—having worked for a startup, started an angel-backed one of my own, and having recently joined another—I can happily reiterate what Brad is saying: follow your passion.

Life is simply too short to do anything but.

I am a little further away from graduation but it won't be long.

I am curious if you have experienced the same thing I have. I went to grad school to gain knowledge and answer a bunch of questions. While many of them have been answered, they have been replaced with exponentially more questions, many of which are even harder than the original ones in the first place.

Not all questions need to be answered. What really are the questions that drive you?

Excellent insights by the author of "Innovator's Dilemma."

I would have thought that TweetDeck would have provided the right ecosystem partner for Tweeter to thrive!

Yeah, the iPhone 4 is ok for basic pictures. I hate how long it takes to find the Camera app and then wait for it to load before it can actually take a picture!

Why can't the iPhone allow for a "take a snap" button? Or do we have to wait for the iPhone 5 for this?

Camera+ helps with the startup speed (along with a burst mode, better focusing, and other improvements).

-----


You can program the home button to bring up the camera with two taps.

This is no longer true as of iOS 4.

Really? damn

I guess those scientists got bored of looking for a cure for cancer!

-----


Do you honestly think that the scientific community is incapable of working on more than one thing at once, or are you just a troll?

-----


Oh c'mon! I'm just wondering how they secured funding to prove this hypothesis. I'm part of the scientific community and I know how difficult it is to justify your research projects.

-----


Thanks!

-----


And one really driven CEO!

I like your analogy of the arms supplier! Is Google making any money on the Android licensing though?

From personal experience, iPad is a great consumption/reading device. When you have to create powerpoints/excel sheets or write code, you still end up needing a desktop computer.
