    Thanks for highlighting! What’s this tweet I read about your rent going up huge every week? Is the economy that strong?

    • Reply eemusings July 25, 2011 at 18:15

      $30 is huge? I suppose…

      Inflation is at its highest in 20 years, if you call that strong

        I guess it all depends on what $30 is as a percentage of overall.

        Do y’all usually look at rent per week? We look at it per month in the US.

    I like going through your links! I used to pore over my Google Reader, but since June I haven’t had the time …

    You have some good finds 🙂

    Thanks for the mention!

    My accessories say that all the time too! I think you have to get “upgraded” aka more expensive iphone accessories that are optimized for the iPhone4.

    For example, for non-optimized accessories, the only problem is that it won’t charge.

      Ah, i should clarify – this is happening when NOTHING is plugged in! I think maybe there’s dust in the port or something. I have a 3GS not a 4.

    The same message popped up with my 3G *all. the. time* I think it’s either a software bug or an Apple ploy to get you to upgrade
