I followed my stolen iPhone Across the World, Became a Celebrity in China, and Found a Friend for Life – I shared this with a friend who has intimate knowledge of China. Which is to say he’s lived there, speaks Mandarin, and regularly conducts business there. His response: 1) That’s so very China, 2) That’s f*cking hilarious. I imagine he’s spot on. And if you’re anything like me, you’re jealous – if not inspired – by the adventure. That’s not to say I want my phone stolen but I’m super down to be an international celebrity.
I Paid a UX Expert $100 to Get Drunk and Evaluate Gizmodo’s Design – First of all, if you want to pay me $100 to evaluate anything of yours while I’m drunk, I’m more than happy to do it. Email me at Pachoops25@gmail.com. Kthanks. Secondly, the timing of this linkage is unique as ESPN – my favorite sports site to never visit – just got a redesign. This is ESPN’s first overhaul in five years. What do you think? Considering I haven’t used it much for customization (I’m rarely logged in) I’m not convinced it’ll work great for me just yet. But I can most certainly appreciate change. And I love UX.
