In order to more efficiently read blogs and other sources of news, I use RSS readers. I'm annoyed by those who truncate their feeds requiring you to click through to the original site if you want to read the whole thing, usually at some arbitrary midpoint of a sentence rather than after a mere teaser paragraph. Contrary to some, this is not so that you have to spawn their ads so they make money because adds can also show up in my feed reader as several blogs I follow do, e.g. Dr. Grumpy. The worst offenders are those that show ads in their feed but also truncate their feeds, e.g. Dr. Wes. You have to see their ads twice. Scammy spammy.
As of this posting, I've unsubscribed to all truncating feeds. Good day, Sir!
Back in July, Jawbone did something puzzling. The company, best known for its Bluetooth headsets, teased a photo of a colorful wristband called the Up -- a deceptively simple thing that could purportedly track your eating, sleeping and exercise habits. The outfit left out a few teensy details: the price, shipping date and, the biggest riddle of all, how it works.
Update: Poor software, shoddy manufacturing, mass recall. Fail.
