If there’s a certain flatness to this review, a lack of enthusiasm, it’s not intentional. Apple keeps repeating that the iPhones 6 are “better in every way”, and as far as I can tell that really is the case. Better fit and finish, better feel in hand, better display quality, faster CPU and GPU performance, better still photos, better video, better battery life, faster Wi-Fi and LTE networking speeds. I don’t know what more we could ask of Apple from a year-over-year improvement over the iPhone 5S, which remains an astounding device. And I’ve barely mentioned iOS 8, which I think is an improvement over iOS 7 in nearly every regard, with a strong focus on improved utility and no unnecessary gimmickry.

And, see some great looking babes. And a fire engine goes by. And I give them the thumbs up. And, and ask a woman what kind of dog that is. And, and I don’t know. The moral of the story is, is we’re here on Earth to fart around. And, of course, the computers will do us out of that. And, what the computer people don’t realize, or they don’t care, is we’re dancing animals. You know, we love to move around. And, we’re not supposed to dance at all anymore.

When I wanted to browse the web, play a game, read anything of any real length or (and I think this is most important) watch a video, I reached for the iPhone 6 Plus. If I wanted to shoot a photo or message someone, check Instagram or my fantasy football scores I grabbed the iPhone 6. This leads me to believe that the iPhone 6 Plus will be very big wherever people use their phones in a ‘tablet’ fashion. The iPhone 6 Plus is a great option for people who don’t have or want an iPad — or simply don’t want to carry it. Where the iPhone 6 is a great upgrade to the iPhone line, the iPhone 6 Plus is a fantastic ‘computer’. I would feel much more comfortable typing out blog posts quickly or proofing articles with the larger iPhone. The iPhone 6 Plus is a great mobile command center for work uses, and I think that its adoption will spell that out.

Read Bad Feminist

Bad Feminist: EssaysBad Feminist: Essays by Roxane Gay
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Roxanne Gay is an excellent smart intelligent writer of a first rate and a perfect example of someone who thinks a great deal about certain things and is able to present and defend strong opinions on them.

I was fond of reading her essays on The Rumpus so I was greatly looking forward to this collection and having much more of that in one place. I was not disappointed in the least. For a smart funny honest take on what most everyone is talking about all of the time and yet not enough, read Bad Feminist.

God, what a book. A beautiful, devastating, simple and honest look at an average man trying to make his way through life. All at once it’s about academia, choice, love, regret and the invisible forces that are quietly at play in our lives every day.
William Stoner is one of the most subtle, compelling characters that I’ve ever read and even though there are no dramatic fireworks in this book, it left me breathless and near tears by the end.
You know that odd mixture of melancholy and beauty that you get sometimes? When you hear “Landslide” while on a red eye flight or you see a lonely old man wearing corduroy pants sitting on a park bench alone in the autumn, that kind of thing that tears at your heart but also makes you so glad to be alive at the same time? That’s what this book did to me. It’s a celebration of life in many ways, the life of a man who struggled and suffered but also shared moments of love and minor triumph. He didn’t build the pyramids or cure cancer but he was alive damn it. He was here.
There are no clear narrative arcs or plot devices that neatly wrap up the story. It’s messy and subtly gorgeous and full of pain, but I think that’s how life can be and I like when books make me feel that way.
This is one of the most beautiful, saddest books I’ve ever read and probably one of the best books I’ve read this year.

Agreed. Once you read Stoner you become an evangelist for it and start speaking truths like this to people who can’t get it because they haven’t read it yet.
