Kevin (aka ThreadKilla)

Seattle-based PR guy who loves gadgets, the Red Sox, photography and bacon. Not necessarily in that order.
Is Google Glass still a thing?

See that picture? I took it at the Vancouver Olympics in 2010. Outside credits it to Wikimedia Commons. I don't mind them using it but the photo credit would have been nice. - Kevin (aka ThreadKilla) from Bookmarklet
And it WAS shared under CC with an attribution requirement. - Kevin (aka ThreadKilla)
So they should have credited me. - Kevin (aka ThreadKilla)

2015 BMW i8: The Jalopnik Review
"Compared to everything else in its class, the i8 feels like the first generation of something new and exciting. The other cars feel like the last generation of something that has been around forever." - Kevin (aka ThreadKilla) from Bookmarklet
Observation: I need better headphones.
I have found the perfect antidote to iTunes. And it is tequila.
Not gonna lie: I'll probably be asleep by 7.
Or running through my neighborhood Will Ferrel-style. - Kevin (aka ThreadKilla)
Ice is for wimps. So are mixers.
I'm getting drunk!
Aha Toro Blanco. Don't need no stinkin' ice. - Kevin (aka ThreadKilla)
Another weekend, another couple of hours wasted swearing at iTunes and its inability to handle even the most basic syncing chores.
The upside to iPhone 6+ Bendgate? People who probably shouldn't be wearing skinny jeans anyway may finally stop wearing them.

There's some things you can cover up. And there's some things you can't. He really said that. Yes, he did. - Kevin (aka ThreadKilla) from Bookmarklet
Murder. Murder is one of those things you can cover up. As soon as I saw he was on ESPN's countdown this year I stopped watching that show. - Steve C Team Marina
This is his second season on there. - DB, Lil LB's Dad from Android
iOS 8 and my iPad 3 are not getting along. At all.
Uh oh. Not much hope for my iPad 2, then. - Spidra Webster
Working ok on mine. Am I missing something? - Eric - It's My Thing from iPhone
I've seen reports that the older the device, the more likely it's going to be painfully slow. - Jennifer Dittrich
For me it wasn't about speed, it was that it was completely unstable. The iPad would spontaneously reboot every 5-10 minutes. I finally fixed it by doing a complete restore. Works finally and it's not horribly slow, but it's not 100% smooth either. - Kevin (aka ThreadKilla)
But I have heard that it runs like a bloated dog on the iPad2. - Kevin (aka ThreadKilla)
Going from the iPhone 4s to the iPhone 6 is like going from a Honda Civic to a BMW. Same activity, completely different experience.
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

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.
