I have the worst time keeping headphones alive. I usually use them when I run, so they get a lot of wear and tear. I have really tiny ears, so in ear buds are the only kind I can use. Regular bud...

I thought of you, Jason, when I read about the whole closing of the MVP Program for WP. Then I saw Mike's tweet about it featured in Mary Jo's blog.

It's much worse here in Canada. Almost no working devices and I've had sales reps tell me they would not sell me a Windows phone on principle.

Maybe a secret shopper video would be a good idea.

I was being a bit snarky there. I just see some sort of convergence of MBA and iPad in the future, even if it they don't call it that.

Did manual typewriters have only a left shift? That's how I learned to type, so I only use left. I can also tell because my shift key is worn on my keyboard, but the right one looks brand new.
