At age 85 (1960), she took up fencing, and continued to ride her bicycle up until her 100th birthday… Calment lived on her own until shortly before her 110th birthday,
Calment smoked from the age of 21 (1896) to 117 (1992)
Calment ascribed her longevity and relatively youthful appearance for her age to olive oil, which she said she poured on all her food and rubbed onto her skin, as well as a diet of port wine, and ate nearly one kilogram (2.2 lb) of chocolate every week.

Compass is my new favorite app.
Newstand in a folder, rejoice.
Buggy as hell.
Slow as balls on my iPhone 4.
I’m unable to detect any improvements in Mail. Swipe left to right no longer works? I imagine this will change in subsequent betas….
I guess swipe left to right is now standard for going back. Interesting…
No parallax wallpaper for the 4.
I just had to reboot because it was locked up.
Some tiny design features make me giddy.

Needs the sound effects from Letterpress.

Still would like a standalone dictionary app.
Today was a good day.
Oh, and Amazon et al wiping out large chunks of retail. And 3D printing on-demand set to wipe out even more manufacturing, transportation, and service work. And robotics - how long will “long haul trucker” last as a viable career once Google works the bugs out of automated driving? Taxi driver? Hell, pilots?
Post-scarcity isn’t here by a long shot, but you can see it hovering menacingly on the horizon.
good comments goin on too
A $100 million pool of venture capital … can now seed 1,000 small experiments, most of which will fail, one of which will become worth a billion dollars.
And so there is a frenzy on.
… We web developers are the limiting reagent of every start-up experiment
… in Silicon Valley, a start-up with no revenue is said to be worth exactly the number of developers it has on staff. The rule of thumb is that each one counts for $1 million.
It’s as if the basic structure of this sector of the global economy has been designed for my benefit. Since developers are a start-up’s most important — if not their only — asset, start-ups compete by trying to be a better place for developers to work.
