Sometimes we communicate in ways other than Gchat.
But we need an iPad, 2 iPhones, and a $10 app.
After having my iPhone for one week, I feel that I should update you on how well it’s working out for me. In short, it’s going very well.

me: Do you want to start a tech blog with me?
Kartik: I’m busy right now.
me: Okay, so just read this later, but basically, I’m thinking that we can write about new “tech” things out there. I have that psychology, “user experience” perspective and you have the technical expertise.
