I shot some video on my iPhone and was editing it using the iMovie app, and something was not going right with it. I became frustrated and said to myself “Why won’t this stupid thing work?!” It was user error, by the way, not the app’s fault. But anyway, right after I had that thought, I immediately had a bit of a reality check. I realized that I was editing HD video on my telephone. That is incredible! It reminded me of this video from Conan O’Brien a few years back where comedian Louis CK talked about how everything is so amazing, and nobody is happy. Kind of puts things into perspective!

Raise your hand if you use Gmail's (or another web-based email service's) web interface for email correspondence. My hand is up too. In doing so, one thing is is a little annoying is when you click on an email address on a website somewhere, and Apple Mail opens up. If you use another stand-alone app (Entouage, for example) to check your email, it's easy to switch the default app, but if you are all web-based, they don't make it quite so easy.
The following will not open up a Gmail window, but at least it will stop Apple Mail from opening.
