Kevin (aka ThreadKilla)

Seattle-based PR guy who loves gadgets, the Red Sox, photography and bacon. Not necessarily in that order.
Came home to find the dog had pooped on the living room rug. And that wasn't the worst thing that happened today.
We refer to these events as *Turd Alert* - Janet from FFHound!

"Apple got more details right on their watch than the vast majority of Swiss and Asian brands do with similarly priced watches, and those details add up to a really impressive piece of design." - Kevin (aka ThreadKilla) from Bookmarklet
This: "... The Apple Watch is absolutely the best smart watch on the planet. That much I'm sure of. But are we sure that wearable technology is something we really want? In the same way those who publicly wore blue-tooth headsets five years ago and those who wore Google Glass one year ago, will smart watches ever become a thing that people genuinely want? If anyone can make it happen, it's Apple. It's going to take a lot of time, and a lot of test cases when this thing launches next year ..." - WarLord
I think the secret sauce here isn't the watch itself, but the (as yet unproven) ability of the watch to reduce friction in things like payments and IoT integration. - Kevin (aka ThreadKilla)

Apple Made a Perfect Watch, But Needs to Decide What It's Good For | WIRED
"[...] what’s missing amidst the Apple Watch’s litany of features is any sense of the restraint that has guided Apple’s products in the past. There’s no suggestion that Apple has cracked what these weird watch things are really all about. The watch seemed like a perfect opportunity to do less. Instead, Apple seemingly just threw up their hands and did it all." - Kevin (aka ThreadKilla) from Bookmarklet
Apparently there's a football game in Seattle today. Who knew?

"You'd think he'd have had the self-awareness to take a black marker to that five Gold Gloves nonsense. But maybe self-awareness, like ranging to his left, is one of the tools he lacks." - Kevin (aka ThreadKilla) from Bookmarklet
Maybe he could also wear a black armband in his own memory. - John (bird whisperer)
I think it would have to have his accomplishments stitched into it before it would pass muster. - Jennifer Dittrich
#DontKillSeanBean. But please, by all means, put everyone who works in the Legends writers' room to the gallows.
And then the disappointment settled in...

PSA, kids: just say no to bad plastic surgery. - Kevin (aka ThreadKilla)
Side benefit to working from home: I can pad my Fitbit stats by walking around during conference calls without annoying anyone (besides myself).
One of the few - maybe the only - upsides to training for a marathon is that I pretty much get to eat whatever the hell I want. Last night: pasta carbonara with plum tomato bruschetta made with tomatoes and basil we grew in our garden.
Titianfall would be a great game if you could play more than 1 round before getting a server timeout. EA sucks at server technology.
Or if you weren't required to do both landscapes *and* portraits in order to level up... - Bren from iPhone
One of Chris Satchell's shoes is untied. I am completely fascinated by this as he walks back and forth in front of the audience. #tfnw
Great talk on the intersection of company cultures & public policy in the development of a thriving tech community by @samsblackman. #tfnw
Laws & courts combine misunderstanding of technology with an outdated perception of privacy, to the detriment of everybody. @RonWyden #tfnw
This just in: I do not enjoy training for a marathon. At all.
No, that doesn't sound like fun. Probably involves running? - Eivind from Android
Yes, and for me also not drinking. Or eating. Or staying up late. Or, really, anything I actually like to do. - Kevin (aka ThreadKilla)
But how else will people know the Persians have invaded? - Spidra Webster
The Internet? - Kevin (aka ThreadKilla)
iCloud is down, Office365 is barely functioning… Welcome to the future everybody!
Hey Comcast, internet outage here in N. Seattle. Again.

"There is too much information available on the Internet to challenge what was said by the vaccine promoters interviewed for this film." Yes, because the Internet is always right. - Kevin (aka ThreadKilla) from Bookmarklet
There are days and then there are "days." This is a "day."
It's time for the Red Sox to cut Clay Buchholz loose. He's no longer good but frail. He's just awful. Daniel Bard 2.0.
The Red Sox may not be going anywhere this year, but at least they’re making sure the Yankees don’t either.

I can't help it. I read stories like this and all I can think is they're doing it to figure out how to serve targeted drug ads to people. - Kevin (aka ThreadKilla) from Bookmarklet

Ocala, FL criminalizes sagging pants - Boing Boing
On the one hand, this is clearly unconstitutional. On the other hand, wearing pants below your butt crack is criminally idiotic. - Kevin (aka ThreadKilla) from Bookmarklet
Huge Microsoft job cuts means we’ll probably be seeing fewer Maseratis and Teslas on the roads here in Seattle. Or not.

Now I need to decide whether the Pats are going to be good enough for me to spend $200 to watch about 12 games via Sunday Ticket streaming. - Kevin (aka ThreadKilla) from Bookmarklet
