Two years can be a lifetime

Two years ago, Randall Munroe of XKCD fame had his girlfriend find out she had breast cancer. Now his wife, they have had a moving journey often captured in his comics. Beloved of geeks everywhere, many of us held our virtual breath and hoped. Things are looking good for them both, and we all breathe again in an exhalation of relief. He has given us all so much, there is joy in knowing he has his gift too. For science!

A site about Siri responses:)

STSS, aka Shit That Siri Says, is rather fun, and shows what a deep understanding Apple has of their market. They knew people would push the envelope, and have shown a lot of style in being ready for it.

Customer complaint email and response by GASP clothing goes viral

These people have no idea of the hellish mess they have gotten themselves into. They deserve it. Oh , they are so exclusive are they? Well, I think they are probably going to find themselves too exclusive to have customers at this rate.

GASP clothing has defended its position involving a customer dispute, releasing yet another jaw-dropping response.

The statement came after a spat between the retailer and a customer, who was told that their clothes were too exclusive for her, turned into a viral email sensation.
