Re: What should TAG Heuer do? - http://scripting.com/2014...
"I may be mistaken (I'm not a watch person), but I was under the impression that the market for high-end watches is more like markets for art or haute couture (or, laundered, underground currency) than they are like something for keeping time or monitoring heart rates." - Rex Hammock
Re: Helpful Translation Tools While Waiting for Skype Translate - http://smallbusiness.com/...
"Note that in the article, I wrote both of the following statements: (1) "while not as good as speaking a second language..." (2) "Do you have a favorite translation tool for when a human translator isn’t available?" I could not agree more that translating for publication needs to be done by a professional translator. I think any of these tools, even an improved Skype Translate, are an improvement on NO translation, not a substitute for professional translation." - Rex Hammock
Re: What Apple Watch, Apple Pay and iPhone 6 Plus Mean for Small Business - http://smallbusiness.com/...
"Thanks Chris. I 100% agree. The payment processing fees for small business transactions already get sliced up among various parties. In the way that Apple first saw iTunes as a break-even play to sell iPods, Apple is the only player who can make money even if their part of the processing fee is thin." - Rex Hammock
Re: The ALS Ice Bucket Challenge is Fun(d)raising at its Finest - http://www.rexblog.com/2014...
"Doug, I think you and I have been watching these things a long time and may bring a little bit of a jaded point of view. I thought about it before doing one and found the ones that made me smile the most were not the famous ones, but the ones with pre-teens dumping water on their parents. I think if a meme can get pre-teens and parents doing something together for any cause or charity is a good thing. That said, your comment "shaming you into doing the same" is precisely why I didn't challenge anyone." - Rex Hammock

I tried out #Lyft this morning. Fortunately, I was the only thing in or on the car with a mustache.

NYT pans #sharknado2 for not reaching high enough. Huh? A triple sharknado isn’t enough for them? Sheeze. http://www.nytimes.com/2014...
I figured CitiBikes would make it into #sharknado2 but was expecting more Wizard of Oz homage.
TweetNado: (RT @redcrossny) If you're in an actual flood zone, @nycoem has you covered. http://www.nyc.gov/html... #sharknado2
Jumping the shark! Oscar winning writing...#sharknado2
In case of a NYC #Sharknado does one get more than 45 minutes when checking out a CitiBiki?
Baseball bats playing some type of recurring metaphorical role in #sharknado2 I think it has something to do with cheap props.
The CGI on #sharknado2 is is the best money can buy (and still use an iPad).
