Being a co-founder of Apple, you'd of course expect Steve Wozniak to have an iPhone. Indeed, the man—who incidentally hasn't worked for the company for some 25 years—is famed for waiting in line for hours at the launch of every new Apple smartphone. With his connections to the Cupertino company clear to all, it may come as a surprise to some that in a recent interview with The Daily Beast, he appeared to be Butterfly in-ear headphone champagne gold singing the praises of Android phones. That's right, phones running Android, the smartphone OS that another Apple co-founder, the late Steve Jobs no less, once vowed to "destroy" because he considered it to be a "stolen product." Wozniak, on the other hand, appears to be a little more diplomatic about the iOS rival. In the interview with TDB's Dan Lyons, Wozniak said, "My primary phone is the iPhone. I love the beauty of it. But I wish it did all the things my Android does, I really do." Phew, at least he still loves his iPhone, eh? So, what is it about Android that presses Wozniak's buttons? For starters, he tells Lyons that voice commands work better, as does Android's built-in navigation system. Voice commands? That'll be Siri then, Apple's recently-acquired voice-activated virtual assistant. Interestingly, Wozniak says he's been using Siri long before Apple before bought it and that since then, it doesn't perform as well. He told Lyons: "I used to ask Siri, ‘What are the five biggest lakes in California?' and it would come back with the answer. Now it just misses. It gives me real estate listings. I used to ask, ‘What are the prime numbers greater than 87?' and it would answer. Now instead of getting prime numbers, I get listings for prime rib, or prime real estate." Wozniak says that that while Android phones aren't as simple to operate as Apple's iPhone, "if you're willing to do the work to understand it a little bit, well I hate to say it, but there's more available white/red pro headphone from monster in some ways." While Wozniak also complained about poor battery life with the iPhone 4S, he didn't give Apple's smartphone a total dressing down. "The people I recommend the iPhone 4S for are the ones who are already in the Mac world, because it's so compatible, and people who are just scared of computers altogether and don't want to use them," he told Lyons. "The iPhone is the least frightening thing. For that kind of person who is scared of complexity, well, here's a phone that is simple to use and does what you need it to do." Despite his views on both operating systems, one thing seems certain: when it comes to getting hold of prime numbers greater than 87, Wozniak will be sticking with his Android device (at least for the time being).

From the perfect cat eye to hair the color of cotton candybeauty for 2011 editorials featured its fair share of traditional and modern techniques. For our latest installment of year and review, we pay homage to all things beauty including hair, jewelry, makeup and everything in between.I've been very lucky this Christmas. Being a beauty obsessive, my lovely friends and family have gifted me with some gorgeous makeup related items. If you're reading this blog, you probably share my obsession so I thought you might like to take a look!Her unabashed commitment to subtle beauty and ethereal lyricism set her apart from the rough-and-tumble Abstract Expressionist circles in which she gracefully moved. She stayed her artistic course throughout, with steadfast disregard of new fashions and movements.As much as the Beauty and potency of the liturgical year has been amplified by the lives of my children, I cannot act as though this is the sole source of this series or where my story begins. It began some time ago.After all, movement on the altar was already very important to me. I worked hard as an altar server, always trying to be in sync with the celebrant and the overall movement of the Mass. I preferred to serve alone, because most servers I knew were too clumsy and out of sync on the altar. Time and space are crucial for altar serving: if you do things right, if you move or make inevitable noises only at exactly the right moment and space things in just the right way you can almost become invisible up there, you can melt into the Mass. This wasnt about reverence for me, it was about beauty. It was art.
