My Polar Opposite presents a social media relationship primer

Apparently y’all are a bunch of punk-ass bitches.  Yeah, I said it.  According to a study released this week MoCoSpace and published by TechCrunch, 48% of you idiots have actually broken up with someone via text message.  Shame on you!  And shame on the set of doofises (is that even a word?) that went out with you in the first place.  They had to see it coming with your social detachment and reliance on communication via technology. Lord knows I did.

Apple Store: cigarette not included

geek-pornThe other day, I decided to go to the Apple Store on Fifth Avenue in Manhattan because I was looking for a few things (headphones, a laptop bag, anti-glare film and an armband for my iPhone.  You know, the usual).  This particular outlet is familiar to me, since I’d visited their Genius Bar for my iBook, and got my new MacBook there.  Yup, I’m that girl.  During those visits I had a mission – getting something fixed, making a specific purchase – so I didn’t really look around.  But this time I had some browsing to do and I came to a fascinating conclusion.  The Apple Store is the modern-day pick up joint for geeks, a nerdy amalgam of the nightclub and the strip club.  Allow me to explain.
