Five simple fucking ingredients in this bitch right here. This is some good shit to make when you are feeling bougie as fuck. High-fructose corn syrup? Naw son, I don’t play that. Hit this with some vodka though, different story. Max relax.
5 cups of water
1/2 -3/4 cup sugar (yeah, it is fucking lemonade. without the sugar it is just real sour fucking water)
3/4 cup Meyer lemon juice, about 6 lemons (you can just use the regular lemons at the store too, not a dealbreaker)
juice of half a lime
4 sprigs of fresh lavender
Bring the water to a boil in a medium pot. Add the sugar and simmer that shit on a low heat for about 5 minutes. Make sure to stir it on the regular. The sugar should be all dissolved in the water by now with no little fucking grains rolling around in there. Turn off the heat and stir in the lemon juice, lime juice, and lavender. Let it cool until it is around room temperature. Take the lavender pieces out but use a fucking spoon and not your fingers if you are going to serve that shit to other people. Put the lemonade in the fridge to cool down all the way. Serve with lemon wedges and a pinch of dried lavender if you want it to look fucking impressive.
As a self confessed Apple fanboy I grew up accustomed to hold off on purchasing anything Mac related before Macworld, WWDC etc. Could developers heed this advice leading into conferences such at Chirp and F8?
I know of a digital agency that just launched a great retail website full of Facebook Connect features only a week before F8.
I’m sure life would have been great for those guys on the morning of F8 when Facebook pulled support for Facebook Connect.
With all the talk about Google, RIM and Apple any observer would think that Nokia are dead and buried and well and truly out of the mobile phone ‘arms race’
I doubt it.
The company I work for released an iPhone app at the start of February - it’s available for free on the AppStore. A few weeks back I received a call from a Nokia representative offering to port this application to the Nokia platform for free. Zing!
Makes me think that something is brewing at Nokia… they’ve got far too much invested in this market to simply lay over and die. The question is when will they make their move.
The other interesting point is that they’ve been the market leader for years (up at the top anyway). People have been buying Nokia’s time and time again as their contracts come up for renewal. The second question are modern day consumerists brand loyalists?
Now I agree that the Gowalla interface is superior, the object of the app is more refined but the simple thing is Foursquare seems (in my circles anyway) to have a larger audience base and location sharing is only fun with friends.
