Few things on the Internet giveth and taketh away the way a read receipt does. An immediate read-and-response is immense validation, while a crucial message that has been read but not responded to is emotionally crushing—you can never pretend hard enough like you have better things to do than wait for a reply.

Read receipts are transitioning from a quirky, semi-invasive e-mail option to an always-on feature in messaging services like Facebook, but they aren’t always welcome. In many instances, they create a mild, uncomfortable social pressure—just enough to keep you talking a little longer than you might want.

Matthew Panzarino:

Apple has released OS X 10.8.4 for Mac computers today, and it fixes a host of things, including an annoying iMessage bug which caused entries to come in out of order in the Messages app.

The “finally” joke actually applies here. Finally.

Google Glass’ awkward interactions parodied on ‘Saturday Night Live’

Google Glass and its new approach to a constantly-connected lifestyle has already been the butt of a number of jokes, including Tumblr blogs devoted to showing how ridiculous the device can be. On Saturday’s new episode of Saturday Night Live, the writers of Weekend Update also got into the fray, with fictional tech blogger Randall Meeks and his new Google Glass joining the news desk to speak to Seth Meyers. 

I couldn’t have been happier with an SNL segment about technology. What in the what is going on?

Mailbox bought by Dropbox

This is my news story of the week, non-Google Reader, non-Veronica Mars edition. In particular because this makes me hope they go email provider-agnostic.

Still don’t got time to give a damn about no pope.
