"The iOS7 thing.."   Sasha Agapov mocks Apple designer Jony Ive's choices. A commenter arrives and addresses her own concerns to Ive.

Dear Mr. Ive,

I am so disappointed with iOS 7. It is difficult for my 65 year old eyes; it is difficult to use and very “cold” in appearance.

I am just an “ordinary user”. I loved iOS 6. Friendly,easy to use, easy to see.

And I find it very controlling that I had less than 2 days to go back to “6”. In life we often have more than one day to redo a mistake.

I found information to indicate you are a “minimalist”. That is fine in a private life; however, I find it questionable to impose your personal views on the rest of society via your design for iOS 7 without an ability to alter various aspects of “your program” to fit another lifestyle.

"The Grand Mufti Of Google."   Another case of mistaken identity hits the pages of the New York Times. This time, it's Qu'ranical.

This e-mail with the pushy subject line was unlike any other I had received. “My friend, who lives in Sweden, wants to get married to a Swedish woman,” it began in Latinized Urdu. “But this marriage will be a fake marriage.” Tahir, the sender, explained that his friend was already married to a woman in Pakistan but wanted to marry a Swedish woman to obtain Swedish citizenship. Tahir’s friend wanted him to deliver fake Pakistani divorce papers by forging both his and his wife’s signatures. Oblivious to the forgery, the Swedes would allow Tahir’s friend to marry, putting the secret bigamist on a path to Swedish citizenship and all that it offered. I doubted that either of the women were privy to the elaborate scheme.

It was Tahir’s heedlessly narrow question at the end that surprised me the most: “If I forge the signatures on the divorce papers, will that really mean my friend will be divorced from his wife?” It was this small, rather arcane detail about God’s view of the marital bond that nagged his conscience — not the various international and domestic laws and criminal codes that he would break. “Would you do me a favor and resolve this problem?”

You do your best to help all of us. The ones who do not know very much about computers. Such as: what am I dong and now where am I going. I was directed to this site when I asked Office Depot how to get adobe Flash Player installed. Now can you help me please?


"Body Bazaar: In the poorest countries of the world, kidneys mean cash."   Of all the topics you don't want to invite into your blog's comment threads, third-world organ harvesting should be at the top of your list. Webzine describes how eager Third World residents are to sell their organs for cash, turning their site into an instant magnet for tales of woe and offers of fresh human kidneys.

"Oprah Winfrey: We will miss you."   In a recent post, the developers behind the web browser Opera recently shared, on the occasion of the last episode of her show, a number of emails directed to Oprah Winfrey which they had erroneously received.

Dear Oprah,
It was brought to my attention by an aquaintance that if you add the age you will be this year to the last two digits of the year you were born, the sum would equal 111. I tried it for the family around me….and it works. I would really like to have an expert Numeralogist shed light on this coincidence. Do you think the number 111 has any significance? Can you use this on one of your shows? I’m asking you because I don’t know where else to ask such a question. Thank you, [redacted]

Hi All,

This is my first blog… I am an Art + Drama teacher at a school in Nottingham.
I have been asked to research an art project for a Brazil theme week with the year 7 group ( 11-12 year olds).
I am enormously impressed by the work of Oscar Niemeyer and think that his work and ideals would be exciting and inspiring for my youngsters. Does anyone know if I can email his office to show the children’s work to the team, or to shout hello from 170 children to the great Oscar?

Thanks Lindsey [redacted]

"Dog Training Resources by eHow."   On a Facebook page for dog training, a commenter seems slightly unclear as to who is responsible for posting or deleting scam ads, and who is responsible for the right-hand-column ads.

Please delete the Work at Home ads below. They should be in the right hand column as ads that need to be paid for. I don’t believe them.
