Yahoo! Japan’s (very good) iOS map app displays its name as ‘MAP’ and it is honestly driving me nuts it’s so ugly.

How would you pronounce ‘Dara’? I’d say ‘Dahra’ but the Americans I listen to on this podcast say ‘Dehra’.

With the latest series of scandals in the U.S., I’ve found myself drawn back into Twitter. Calling the dopamine rush a ‘hit’ doesn’t feel metaphorical in the least. This can’t be good for you.

Speaking of @mentions, I’m constantly frustrated:

  1. if you reply to a @mention you wrote, it directs it at you rather than at the person you mentioned; and
  2. if you reply to a @mention someone else wrote, by default it only includes the username of the mentioner.

As I understand it, @manton didn’t include a like/heart mechanic in Micro.blog because @mentions make for more meaningful interactions. I agree but then I wish we could turn them off in the timeline. I don’t send as many as I’d like because I don’t want to spam my followers.

I got a GEDCOM file from my grandfather this evening and loaded it up in MacFamilyTree. Didn’t realise I have family that arrived in Australia at, essentially, the beginning of white settlement!

This is so ridiculously petty but one of the things that bugs me the most about discussion regarding the NBA is the apparent inability of any pundit to think of alternatives to the word ‘credit’. ‘Approbation’, ‘plaudits’, ‘commendation’?
