Passbook. As worthless as Siri?

Some developers seem to be loving Passbook.

As for Siri, well, Google's voice support just seems better to me.

Yeah, you probably don't need to. If you do, you can just get the Migration Assistant from Apple to do it. If it isn't much, put what you need on Dropbox or whatever and then get it back later.

That said, I am surprised you say you have an external drive that isn't compatible with Macs. Is it using a weird filesystem?

In Topic: Mass-Market Food Products That Are Actually Good

I consider Maille mustards as mass market, and I like them fine. More bite to their Dijon than Grey Poupon. And I could eat the grainy stuff with a spoon. Tin mustard (the brand, not the metal) is very good, but Maille is okay enough that I don't need to seek it out. (Mustard we do use.)

I'll admit that I'm a Colman's man. I always have a tin of Colman's English mustard in my pantry and I use it like some would use French's.

In Topic: cricket, the thread

Call me a heretic, but I do like Twenty20 cricket. Of course, that might be due to the fact that it's about the only cricket I can watch here in the US. Thank you, WatchESPN.

ETA: That said, I could do with out the freaking mandatory powerplay. Just let the defense be what the captain wants.

But in all, it's been great fun. I'm not happy with QuickTime Player, which seems dumbed down and has no Preferences.

Yeah, I pretty much use VLC for all my video needs on my Air. QuickTime is just too simplistic.
