SPX was awesome!!! Got a pretty sweet haul. I completed my Gunnerkrigg book collection! And I met Tom Siddell, Evan Dahm, Dannielle Corsetto, Meredith Gran, and David McGuire. Totally worth the trip!!

As a woman, I’ve slowly been written out of the phone world and the phone market. That extra “.2” inches of screen size on each upgrade simply means that I can no longer do what I enviously observe men do every day: Check messages one-handed while carrying groceries or a bag; type a quick note while on a moving bus or a train where I have to hold on not to fall.
I must put down everything in my hands and use my phone with both hands for everything.
There is no rule that says the screen size must get bigger with each upgrade in memory or capabilities, and yet it does. For most men, it’s just one small, added benefit. For many women, though it’s a reminder that the tech industry doesn’t always remember or count your existence.
Just so we are clear: I don’t want a pink phone, I don’t want “women’s applications” and I don’t want ruffles or hello kitty on my phone.
I merely want a design that acknowledges that women exist, and women often have smaller hands than men.
And most men can keep even the largest phones in their pockets, which often isn’t the case with women’s clothes. (cosmiccelery)
I can barely hold my iPhone 4S with one hand. My hands are THAT small and my entire hand can’t even fit into the pockets of ANY of my jeans. So obviously neither can my phone.
It’s the pockets things that really gets to me. I’m tall, and have generally big hands because of that, but my clothes come from the women’s departments and so have small pockets. I don’t want my phone falling out of my pocket, thankyouverymuch, and I would very much like it to fit in my front pocket and not just my back pocket, where it’s more likely to get stolen or broken if I sit on it.(via mybodymystory)
ugh yes I was thinking about this today. big phones are just not designed with women in mind at ALL (of course the real answer is to give women bigger pockets but the phone industry can’t really do that)
The human body has 7 trillion nerves and some people manage to get on every single fucking one of them
