This is amazing.
The power of celebrity can be amazing, if it’s in the right hands. I don’t think, however, that there’s very many people who handle that responsibility with as much grace, respect, and kindness as Wil Wheaton. He’s a good goddamn guy.

I’ve never really wanted to take a cruise. Even less now. And now, the cruise lines are costing millions of dollars and not paying taxes. Fun stuff!

Aucontrary Proofreads iMore.com

Today, I’ll be proofing a post from Rene Ritchie, iMore’s Editor-in-chief.

Our first example actually contains 2 typos in one sentence:

See if you can spot them both. I’ll give you a hint. It is apparent that whatever Rene uses to author content does not have a spell-checker.

Next we have ‘an’ where we should have had ‘a’. A common problem as you are revising a post and reword something placing a word that starts with a consonant where there was a vowel before. Still, easily identified and fixed with a quick proofread before publishing. If only there was an editor to do that.

Finally, we have a sentence that I’m not really sure what it is supposed to be, but I am fairly certain that this is not what Rene was thinking he was communicating as he typed it.

That’s all for now. Stop back often, because I am sure there will be plenty more examples to come.

I’m SO EXCITED! I just won $800,000 Canadian dollars.  That’s gotta be at least $25 US dollars or something like that, right?

I know everyone is going to be JEALOUS when they find out that I won and THEY didn’t!

Transporter Week 1

Last week, I received my  Transporter. You can read the unboxing and my thoughts after 1 day. After a week of use, I thought I’d update my impression of the device.

The biggest thing I’ve seen people talk about is how this is a Dropbox replacement.  And it is not bad as a Dropbox replacement.  Except, Dropbox is integrated into so many things. 1Password, FileThisFetch, etc. Transporter, not so much … yet.  Who knows what the future will bring.
