I’m just kidding. We’re a bunch of literates who enjoy reading so much that we built our own news readers. But when a behemoth like Google makes a call that places you at the business end of 100,000 frantic power users, reminding yourself how tough you are is…
Carlin sat patiently as the FUCKING DELICIOUS SAUTÉED FILET MIGNONNE EGGPLANT LASAGNA (because Carlin is Vegetarian) WITH BRAIDED BAGUETTES was placed in front of them. They looked up at their date and smiled warmly; as always, FR was FLIPPING THE FUCK OUT, exclaiming about EVERY FUCKING…
Carlos’ perfect hair did I step into a Night Vale post OMG I have died. Halp.
You know that old joke about bachelors only having like, a case of beer and a bunch of half-opened empty jars of condiments in their fridge? And how having all of those condiments is a sign that the guy is immature and doesn’t have his life together and is basically someone you shouldn’t date?…

Also, Sriracha, Mustard, and Soy Sauce (and soy sauce-based condiments) are my life.
As iOS evolves, it continues to empower developers with new capabilities for enriching the lives of our users on a daily basis. Allowing apps to be smarter about exposing data to and consuming data from other applications would be a natural progression. By providing dynamic inter-app communication, iOS would allow developers to focus on what makes their particular applications great. For users, a seamless integration of services would make our ever-increasing time spent on mobile devices more productive.
Lots of good thoughts. This needs to happen. I assume (hope) this is the next logical step after allowing all apps to run in the background.
This is the one thing I love to show people who swear they’ll never leave the confines of Apple. They’re converted shortly after. I don’t want it to come to iOS just for the sake of being able to show that off. Yes, Apple’s production of it will be slick, but it will never meet the raw power of the Android implementation. Apple will find some way to deny developers access to the functionality if they don’t want certain actions to have it.
Same with setting default launching programs. They day I see that come to iOS is the day and Android wins the war showing that the feature is righteous and good, but I lose that aspect of being able to show it off.
