If there's anything that Facebook and Twitter have made me realized, it's that there's too much chatter to filter through in a day now.

Want to rename Siri? There's no point

Siri doesn't listen in the background. She has to be awakened by holding the home button. Now, if you could call on the voice command in the iPhone like the Speech Recognition on the Mac, then it would make sense to rename Siri because everybody's phone would start running at the least utter of her.

Can I rename Siri?

Apple's voice assistant is useful, and while I'm very sure it's not the most advanced voice command assistant available in the market, it sure is well marketed and I know that will make people believe it's the first, most advanced. Siri is a sleek name, especially to the American ear, but I would rather have the option to call it by whatever name what I want. It seems like the company is enforcing what "cool" should be by usage.

Arms So Freezy: Rebecca Black's "Friday" As Radical Text

An assertive and poignant essay by Dana Vachon on Black's music video, "Friday,

“The crying tires, the busting glass, the painful scream that I heard last…” sang J. Wilson and the Cavaliers, when pop still admitted technology's collusion with death. But that time is gone. For Rebecca Black there is only graphic effect, materialist schizobabble, “I got this, You got this…” she sings over and again, citizen as gaping appetite, grammarless and hungry.

Netflix CEO Reed Hastings sending me an apology letter in response to the complaints and rumors about price hikes and service changes, then segueing into an announcement of the split-up into Netflix and Qwikster is like finding out my parents are getting divorced.

"It’s hard to write this after over 10 years of being in a relationship, but your Netflix and I think it is necessary to move on... We need to let each other grow independently.

Don't worry though I'll basically be just the same service you're used too, but I'll go by Qwikster now (my old college name, actually). You and I will still have our have our special movie time. I promise I'll even get video games now. Remember who got you the Wii, PS3 and Xbox 360 games? The only negative with the separation is that since we will not be sharing the same website anymore, you and I will have to set aside special time every week to see eachother.

WebOS dies

I bought an HP Veer when it was first released just three short months ago. HP made all these promising announcements ala Apple style that's so popular nowaday. They had a positive outlook for their mobile suite. WebOS 2.0 was the next logical progression to the smooth, multitasking gizmos. It seems that somewhere along the way, frenetic marketing and their drive to hit a home run crowdpleaser right off the bat ruined a promising alternative to the "other" smartphones.

Oh well. We all have to move forward. I just hope the iPhone 5 is lighter and thinner.
