Apple is sneak peeking their new operating system, OS X Mountain Goat.
It’s kind of a big deal.
Well I did it. Thanks to everyone (my mom and Ada) for your helpful votes, which helped me decide which iphone case to get. And the final decision is……(insert drum roll)….
This one! It’s name is “You’re the Wind that Blows me Home“. I hope that that means the wind will blow this case to me really soon.
So I got the iphone and the biggest challenge is making the phone less conceited. Here are my 3 sure fire ways of seeming less like a douche bag.
1. Make it so it doesn’t automatically capitalize.
I like good grammar in my texts (not well grammar). And that’s not pretentious at all, but when you end up with perfect capitalization as well, it’s a little excessive. For example saying: “yeah, i just got out of my meeting. meet there in five?” doesn’t seem pompous, but when you capitalize properly it does. ” Yeah, I just got out of my meeting. Meet there in five?”
It’s just too proper, and your friends will start thinking you are too proper to meet them in five. Go to Settings > General > Keyboard > Auto-Capitalization (OFF).
2. Make your signature not “Sent from the iPhone.”
It’s embarrassing enough to be seen with a country killer, so telling people over the internet is just tacky. Instead of having it say, “Sent from the iPhone” you can say, ” sent from my arthritic hands to yours” or ,”sent from (none of your business).”
Okay, but how do I fix it? Go to Settings > Mail, Contacts, Calendars > Signature > type in something funny.
3. Shoot it with a handgun.
Just be like the artist Michael Tombert and shoot through your iphone. Another possible option is getting this case.
Anyway. Hope that helps you navigate the world of having an iphone and not being an asshole about it.
Sprint is really good naming at phones:

…also this phone is in-your-endo…

These are 5 throwback items that you could buy people for Christmas if you had an irrational amount of money that you could only spend at Urban Outfitters.
It’s like a real camera except it can’t take photos, it doesn’t actually have a flash, and the yellow handle thing probably wont fit around your wrist.

Sometimes I ask myself, if only my cell phone could have all the benefits of an iPhone while still being clunky and hard to carry around.

For this one I had a ton of mean jokes planned, but it turns out some percentage of the sale goes to Project Linus, which gives kids blankets. That model sure looks like she’s thinking about the children.
In the event that your iPhone doesn’t attract enough attention add this lime green phone to your phone. Added bonus, it is even more obnoxious than a bluetooth.

When I was at the antique warehouse thing this summer, I saw a typewriter with this message. I thought it was hilarious.
Makes you want an iphone, doesn’t it! Check them out at Indie Cases. The title of the shop makes me feel silly for liking them.
As a kid I would attempt to play computer games, but I found them very stressful. My brother was always playing action games: Doom, Diablo, and other games that I can’t remember the names of. I loved watching, but whenever I would attempt to play I would freeze up. It was too much pressure.
So instead I stole my mom’s “game” Mavis Beacon Teaches Typing. It was awesome. The concept was simple: press buttons and get praise. And there was no pressure. If I did poorly, Mavis broke it to me nicely. She is sweet like that.
So now I am all grown up and I want to show Mavis Beacon how fast I can type with accuracy. So, I am downloading a free trial. Do you also want to make Mavis proud? Download Mavis Beacon for mac or for PC.
Here is the original picture that made me crave the support and attention of Mavis. It’s by Adam Lisagor, check it out here.
