EMAILS

To make the gmail layout legible you have to click the gear (settings)
and pick compact. This makes it not look so bright. This should be the
default.

Now the redesign doesn’t make you dizzy at all.

Hey Buzz Crew,

In a recent voicemail, Champ asked if the AT&T website made a mistake claiming the iPhone 4S is 4G. BT said yes, but it’s no mistake. AT&T includes HSPA+ in their definition of 4G. That said, how long are we going to keep counting the number of Gs in a phone? I’m over it.

Hey its Blake ! Love the show…I was listening to some of your old episodes. And in ep.1556 y’all metioned that people send about 3200 or so texts a month. Well I JUST got a new phone Wednesday. I already have sent 7,421 Texts. Todays Saturday. That mean I sent about 1800 texts a day since wednesday. I also have an Unlimited 4G plans, so ontop of all the webbrowsing/streaming/apps/etc. I still text like a boss. Infact it took me about a minute to write all of this ;) #TeenageSwag

Mr. Stephen Beacham,

We are the 10 percent. We are getting forced to “convert” in elementary school. We have to choose between products that work well, but cost more, or products that work for everyone but us. We are denied quality cooking utensils. Our iPhones refuse to get service. We are seen as sinister. We have been ignored by the 90%.

On Thursday, December 8, 2011, we took the first step towards recognition. We occupied Twitter. By reversing the position of your tweet stream and sidebar, the 90% are forced to endure what the 10% must go through on a daily basis. So Mr. Beacham, when you call the new twitter “backwards” you are giving us just what we want. Who are we? We are the left handers of the world, and whether you like it or not, we are here to stay. We are the 10%.

~Joseph (southpaw spokesman)

P.S. If indeed you are left handed, those righties have gotten into your head. You’re not sitting at our table at lunch.
