I just want people to know that whatever news happens, I was on top of it way earlier.

But without anything to link to, my blog doesn't work, so I have to wait for someone else to finally come to the same realizations, so I can link to it and let people know how long I was aware of it first.

What else have you been thinking about for years, but have been keeping uncharacteristically to yourself?

Ha HA! I phished Gruber's pass! Now I shall hack into his notes and discover what he has in store for future blog postings!

What?! There's nothing here! Rats, foiled again! Curse you, John Gruber!

Why is the OS prompting for your iTunes password all the time? Fix the root cause. I was going to suggest putting a notification in the tray that your password is needed, which would take you to Settings with 1 tap, but we know that iOS notifications are a huge fuckin mess already so the user may never see it.

I have been thinking for years exactly what the first four posts said.

This verifies how correct I have been all this time.

I've had lots of times to think about this because I've seen that fucking "sign into iTunes" prompt way too many times over the years.

It's a lot better now than it was when it was popping up again and again and again for weeks at a time.

Much like Gruber I have been suffering in silence.

Also, Gruber, ya burnt.

You guys would not BELIEVE the amount of really insightful stuff I keep to myself. Trenchant, incisive commentary. Helpful advice and unique perspectives. I don't envy you poor saps, just waiting until somebody else says it before I dramatically reveal that I thought so first!
