Reading poorly converted and edited ebooks is like listening to poorly compressed music through earbuds. Are we lowering a generations expectations? ~ eP

Poorly made ebooks are annoying…

And unlike poorly compressed audio there is no benefit, and everyone notices it even in a noisy environment.

Well, the World Cup began this weekend, and the Philippines lost three games that answered all questions about whether they belong at this level: First, there was a 3-point overtime loss to Croatia, which the Philippines led in the last two minutes of both regulation and extra time; then, a cold-shooting meat grinder of a game with Greece where Gilas hung within 7 to 12 points throughout but never managed to close the gap; and finally, a four-point loss to Argentina on Monday.


Wizards and Nets fans who followed Blatche in the NBA may find this hard to believe, but Blatche has played his ass off for Team Philippines. Against Croatia, he scored 28 points and grabbed 12 rebounds, and made several big shots in the endgame. This came after he plunked about six straight long 2-point jumpers off the rim in the first quarter — exactly the kind of start that might derail a player with a reputation for inconsistency. But Blatche got himself back on track with a nice Euro-step drive in the second quarter, then adjusted his game to begin attacking the slower Croatian defenders off the dribble. Monday against Argentina, even though foul trouble limited Blatche’s minutes, he finished with 14 points and 15 rebounds and was one rimmed-out 3-pointer away from giving the Philippines a lead in the final minutes. And in the Greece game, Blatche had 21 points and 14 boards while skipping around on a bum knee he twisted the previous day. The Greeks guarded him with a quick-footed, caveman-looking forward named Georgios Printezis, and when Blatche recognized that he couldn’t drive by him as easily as he did the Croatian big men, he took Printezis into the low post and earned trips to the foul line. Blatche also showed an encouraging trust in his teammates against Greece. After Filipino center Junmar Fajardo bobbled a baseline pass from Blatche that cost Gilas a layup, Blatche again found Fajardo in transition on the Philippines’ next possession, and this time Fajardo caught the ball, went strong to the basket, and drew a foul. It was during this game that Blatche inspired former Great Britain national team coach Mark Clark, who has called all the Group B games, to say, “You just can’t say enough good things about Blatche,” which might end up being the most unlikely bit of color commentary to emerge from the entire World Cup.

If this were Soccer World Cup, Blatche would get a huge new contract!

Joe Pinsker on a unique strategy employed by Herb Hyman, the owner of Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf:

He determined his shops’ proximity to Starbucks to be such a boon that he began opening locations close to established Starbucks—a sly reversal of the national chain’s strategy. “We bought a Chinese restaurant right next to one of their stores and converted it, and by God, it was doing $1 million a year right away,” Hyman is quoted as saying in Starbucked.

Rather than run and hide from the big guy, or be terrified of his arrival into town, Coffee Bean started doing the opposite. And they thrived — undoubtedly because it helps to be next to Goliath when you’re trying to get people to pull for David.

(Also interesting data on small boards versus big boards — which makes total sense.)
