“Ever since we played Angry Birds in Maine,” Marcus said on the phone the other night, “I’ve been seeing it everywhere. I guess it’s becoming pretty popular.”
I just barely restrained myself from pointing out that Marcus is hardly the barometer for what’s hot in recreational tech. Other cutting-edge tech products to which Marcus has recently been introduced include Pandora, Twitter, Facebook games, and Skype.

“And you didn’t type it into Google? Wait, you’ve heard of Google, haven’t you?”
“Go play your videogames, woman.”
