Jeebus, Tomato might be the most awesome thing ever, but that page about functional QOS is one of the worst-written I've ever encountered. It seems that they took a major teaching opportunity and wasted it behind snipes, obtuse examples, and dense writing.
More importantly, why are you posting ANYTHING BUT BABY PICTURES to the web? Damn you....

Seriously, Gruber is so ridiculously one-sided as to be a Mobius strip; I have moved him into the same category of feeds as Winer, feeds that k read only while inebriated and able to resist punching my LCD.

9. (...) Every basic weather app required I put in my zip code even though the phone has GPS in it. Interesting -- we put Weatherbug on Shannon's phone, and my one quibble with it was that it seems a bit too aggressive at using the phone's GPS to get weather for your current location. This also seems a bit unfair, given that the basic weather app for the iPhone actually has no functionality to use the GPS to discover your current location. None at all. Zip.

I found that it's just another paradigm of computing, and once you're used to its norms, the phone makes sense just as much as an iPhone. For example, I never knew about the whole swipe-sideways-to-delete functionality on the iPhone until someone showed it to me, but now it's second nature... and most Droid functionality now feels that way to me too.

One of the other things it does *infinitely* better than the iPhone: Google Voice. I literally will never forgive Apple for essentially banning Google Voice from the iPhone, and now we have an example of how it SHOULD be. With Google Voice on the Droid, you can choose to use Google Voice with every single dialed call, or you can even tell it to ask you every time you dial a call whether to use the regular phone functionality or Google Voice. Even IF Apple and the dictators at the iTunes App Store allow Google Voice in someday, this level of integration with the phone and dialer is something we will never, ever see on the iPhone -- Apple will claim that it's too confusing, or something like that, and relegate it to a pure app that has no integration at all with the rest of the phone's functionality.

Plug it into your computer, and then a notification will show up in your notification bar; drag the notification bar down, and tap the option to enable mass-media mode.

This is the BEST THING EVER. Keep this up, and you'll keep me in stitches, which is really what you're aiming for anyway, let's just acknowledge right now.

Seriously, that's the greatest costume EVER. I saw that first picture and had flashbacks to watching late-evening Gallagher specials on our newly-installed HBO... wow. AWESOME. Thanks for the memories!
