    Getting the same thing, in comments at least.

    - Item 1
    - Item 2
    - A third
    - A nested one

    Putting two spaces at the end of each line makes them a list but without bullets.

    You built a free app, that works, with no API. I wouldn't be so hard on yourself, people feel entitled to stuff but at the end of the day, they didn't build the app!

    Couple of mistakes maybe:

    - Putting ads in (I'm guessing there were ads, based on the comments?) - this makes it feel like a cash grab
    - Making the app at all, without an API. Your intentions were noble, but you are going to get this sort of negative feedback since apps that are simple a web view tend to fare worse. There's a lack of Snapzu apps for a reason, maybe?

    I agree, this is too soon. Battery life isn't evolving anywhere near as quickly as the rest of the components in the watch, but here it's the one feature that needs to improve drastically. I quite like Pebble's workaround, but obviously that isn't what Apple would do (I don't think they have it in them to work with an e-ink screen even though they should try).

    The iPad worked well though. It was initially hard to see its uses but once you got one in your hands you could instantly see the point. It wasn't for everyone, but it turned a lot of haters on first sight and of course the sales speak for themselves.

    The watch has the inverse effect to some extent. Once you get one in your hands it's frustrating and underwhelming. It doesn't do anything you think it can't, and it does a lot of things badly that should be simple.

    The real 'go-to' is Threes.

    It's a far better game.

    If you like group games, Spaceteam is also a good one. Lots of shouting.

    If I want to play something for five minutes, Threes! is the go-to game. It's so pretty, the soundtrack is really fun and of course the game is like crack.

    You don't even need that! I use git for so many things; notes, pictures, passwords - loads of stuff.

    With a simple remote server set up, it serves as my dropbox.

    Bitcoins: The Second Biggest Ponzi Scheme in History

    I hereby make a prediction: Bitcoins will go down in history as the most spectacular private Ponzi scheme in history. It will dwarf anything dreamed of by Bernard Madoff. (It will never rival Social Security, however.)
