Retweeted by Abdur Chowdhury@pandemona people who moved from Apple to Android still get iMessages (undelivered) so you have to turn it off when they're part of a group.@pandemona That would be great, this is killing me turning it on and off. off breaks my iMessages coming in...@iano nooooooI have to turn off iMessage whenever I have a group SMS conversation with an android user. So frustrating....@JugglingPumba Send some snow and cold to us in Tahoe please.@jkalucki Hoping that is true. See @squawalpine 's instagram feed... I cant figure out what is real and creative anymore...@jkalucki Its a scary prospect this year.I love @biz doing things because it makes him happy!

@tylr point is I don't even need that.@abdur: Anyone else have an email filter for all emails with the word unsubscribe or webinar in them?@sacca wait till you have to explain to her she can not sign any contracts until 18.
@SteepSkiing congratulations your an amazing skier and it's great to see all your accomplishments recognized. Thanks @skimagonline@united the minimum customer expectation in 2014 is first class has power. It's the norm in other airlines.@sm @united some do. Mine does not which is more the norm for domestic flights.That moment when you realize you have hours in the air and only 9% power on your iPad and @united does not have power on their planes. 😱@TheChrisSussman not possible.

Who benefits from this the trees or the post office? http://t.co/cZq8Xckbfw@superguenter I gave mine up after a month of hand discomfort.Where will you go next. Ask @StevenTheApp http://t.co/tby7XuVSZsLooking at 100yrs of aggregated activity data on @StevenTheApp the most probable next thing you do is go home.@jenna @tylr yes you guys should say hi... :)Apple tech support is playing 'walk around in circles' as they transfer me form help agent to help agent. #iCloud
@abatalion pretty simple. All my data is there Friday. Saturday it's gone from all my devices, all presentations, all spread sheets.This bromance between @iano and @ej is terrifying.

Good luck!Does anyone know how to contact Apple about my @icloud deleting all my data?So You Want To Fix The Housing Crisis http://t.co/pW9RoNF27B cc @pmarca @balajis
Retweeted by Abdur ChowdhuryDont trust icloud it deleted all my documents on all my devices!!!! @iCloud
@goels slow is fine. Seriously I think they deleted all my spreadsheets, presentations, etc. iCloud is scary.All my iCloud documents just disappeared on all my devices. That seems like a super bad bug. #icloud Anyone else seeing this?
@cayley don't forget the gin. 🎿🍸🍸@cayley I look forward to you teaching me all you learn. While skiing of course.Come check out the #DeepFlight sub display at the @GoPro booth at DEMA: https://t.co/T8kqJUauS1

Retweeted by Abdur Chowdhury@TheChrisSussman I hate phones, good thing @ATT makes sure mine never works.
@ophir Depends on the balance of vino to wishes. I personally would error on the vino and less on the wishes.@sacca It should auto correct to MR (Monthly reach).@uberreza @davidplouffe @sacca See Wikipedia vs Encyclopedia Britannica. :) But I get your point.@iano You would not survive in the midwest. Sorry.@uberreza @davidplouffe @sacca you haven't ridden in a DC cab have you. :) Most X drivers are pro & with GPS even more reliable than a cab.
