The estimated kill rates are two to four times higher than mortality figures previously bandied about, and position the domestic cat as one of the single greatest human-linked threats to wildlife in the nation. More birds and mammals die at the mouths of cats, the report said, than from automobile strikes, pesticides and poisons, collisions with skyscrapers and windmills and other so-called anthropogenic causes.
(I kid, I don’t doubt the validity of this report, and in fact, as I type this, an 18-pound tuxedo short-hair lies next to me and I fear for my life.)
I noticed on the way into work this morning that the audio controls on my lately-upgraded-to-iOS 6.1 iPhone looked ever so slightly different.
Surer enough, as these two screen captures show, they are. Is this the subtle touch of Jony Ive’s new UX leadership in the post-Scott Forstall era? That scrubber control certainly bears resemblance to brushed al-u-min-ium.
That is a sad state of Android affairs. No wonder surveys continually show developer interest in iOS as leaps and bounds ahead of Android. Android has come a long way in the past two years, but what good are those advancements if you as a developer have to create for the lowest common denominator?
I’ve been a fan of Goorin Bros. hats since three years ago when a friend turned me onto them, and I have been spending a fair amount of time at their new shop in Uptown Minneapolis since it opened a few months back, walking distance from my apartment. Well, it turns out they make some pretty entertaining brand content too (how many companies have you ever seriously said that about?), that is, entertaining if you love hats. Take this post about how to wear a fedora for example.
There’s one way you can wear it that I didn’t recommend, and that is to not wear it, a little taboo, I don’t recommend it. Wear hats. They say a lot about an individual.
That Grizum is looking mighty nice. That might be my next hat.
