Re: Stanford Cardinal's national title hopes crushed - http://www.insidebayarea.com/ci_2429...
"I thought I was the only one who would make a comparison to the Fiesta Bowl! Granted Stanford should have played a more complete game (probably shook up from the Washington game) but they made the rally look almost too easy...until the final 4 downs. It wasn't even necessary to score immediately. We could have picked up another 1st down using our bread & butter run game but instead threw some risky passes to the end zone. I'm all for opening things up with play action but not inside the red zone when there's no room to move. Utah played great but I can't help but wonder what might have been if the play calling in the last series were different. :(" - Jon West

Re: Preorders Go Live For Apples iPhone 5c: Here Are All The Details - http://appadvice.com/appnn...
"There were no preorders at my local Walmart even though they have a wireless center. I thought I read somewhere that Walmart wasn't doing preorders and that it would be available on Friday September 20th. Now all I see are articles about preordering today." - Jon West

Re: Don’t Execute A Backbone.js Route Handler From Your Code - http://lostechies.com/derickb...
"Thanks! The lack of "you have to code this way" is what I love about backbone but it's also frustrating. I came up with at least 3 or 4 different ways to solve a problem I've been working on and could talk myself in or out of all of them. :/" - Jon West

"@derickbailey:disqus What's your take on this? I think I understand the example you used which is model-based but what about navigation links which aren't really tired to a model? I have a few links in the header: #projects, #admin, #reports and I have a method which grabs the data-fragment value and passes it to router.navigate. I'd rather just use plain hrefs. Thoughts?" - Jon West

Re: Spotify launches iPhone streaming radio - http://money.cnn.com/2012...
"- Facebook isn't required for Spotify even though they do push that over standard logins - I too like Pandora but there is a huge difference between the 2 in that you can save songs to playlists for future listening with Spotify instead of hoping it comes up again on Pandora. You also don't have any limitations on how often you listen to or skip songs and you can cache songs locally for offline listening. It's pretty awesome if you give it a try." - Jon West

Re: We Have Communicators Episode 143: iTunes Match and More! - http://www.wehavecommunicators.com/node...
"Hey guys, I'm listening to the latest episode (late I know, blame iCloud) and you are talking about accessing smart playlists via iTunes Match.  They have always been available...but they have also always sucked. :( I have several playlists in which the rules don't get applied properly such as filter by genre and comment. It also doesn't respect the limit by # number of songs rule.  What's most frustrating is that this bug/feature only applies to iOS devices but works fine on a mac.  i.e. If I sign into my iTunes account on my work machine and enable match it will properly display my smart playlists and respect the rules.  What gives? Match (or any streaming music service) needs to provide good playlist tools or they aren't worth it. Anyone can dump songs on a server via FTP...accessing my customized library is what I'm truly after.  Still using match along side Pandora and Spotify Premium." - Jon West

Re: iTunes Match testing continues with iTunes 10.5.1 beta 2, still no public release - http://www.bgr.com/2011...
"In my opinion it's always been streaming but people seem to get caught up in the syntax.  If you can start playing a song within a few seconds without waiting until a manual download is complete it's streaming as far as I care. I tried it on my ATV2 last night and it worked great...or as least as great as Music Match on other iOS devices.  Smart playlists are still busted and don't respect the "limit by" feature. :(  Oddly, this works fine on iTunes and the playlists even auto-update." - Jon West

Re: Apple Updates iTunes Match and Adds Apple TV Support, Still Not Available to the Public - http://www.cultofmac.com/127720...
"I was able to enable on both the latest beta of iTunes and my Apple TV 2.  I'm still not a fan of how smart playlists work (or don't work) on iCloud/Music Match but access via Apple TV is a good distraction. Going on vacation next week and plan to bring the ATV so the family can listen to music and watch Netflix in our hotel. :)" - Jon West

"One of the big guys, Dish Network, did buy it a few years ago. Their most recent DVR, the VIP 922k, has been integrated with sling features. I've been trying to get one at a discount since I've been a subscriber for so long but they are still quoting me $200. I like your idea of getting a stand alone Sling Player and not dealing with the slowness and or crippled offerings of Cable Co's." - Jon West
