Episode 414: Use The Force, Don’t Use Force

hijinks-comic(Image above from Joel Watson’s Hijinks Ensue; it got a lot of replay this week as it super-accurately predicted the recent Apple news. Way to observe that crystal ball, Joel!)

APPLE NEWS! APPLE NEWS! SEO! Wait, what? New Apple products are on the horizon and everyone is in a tizzy! Well, everyone but Steve. Blissfully unaware Steve. He is, however, crazy stoked for the arrival of our Poke-overlords to arrive next year on all of our connected smart devices! Meanwhile, Jason got the chance to take in a Super Art Fight and his report should be enough to make you want to join him for the next one. WHEEL OF DEATH! WHEEL OF DEATH! WHEEL OF DEATH!


Tweet Thread of the Day ~FOR~ Wednesday, July 28, 2010

After a well-deserved, battery-recharging vacation, TTotD is back! And what better way to get back into it than to talk about the death of webcomics! …Wait, what? Seems Joey Manley (as well as others around Twitter who have since escaped my Following gaze) is curious about the current state of webcomics, even going as far as to ask whether or not the medium (or genre, not sure what classification we’re using this week) has run its course.

We chatted about this on the podcast we recorded last night (which will be in your ears next Monday) so I figured it was well worth a post, especially since the thread is a contribution from Scott Kurtz.

the iPhone needed a dedicated reader app. Pull out the strip, make it as big as possible. But the iPad? Man, safari on that thing is great. about 9 hours ago via Tweetie for Mac

I don’t see a reason for most webcomics to pursue an iPad app when their websites are already f***ing gorgeous on that thing. about 9 hours ago via Tweetie for Mac
