We’re hitting peak VC Twitter satire. I’m OK with that.
 
Honestly If this much energy went into being empathetic to founders, we won’t even need VC twitter. Also I just follow @rabbis for real talk. Rest is just marketing speak

So @RichardPhotoLab it is time for you to learn that there is such a thing called too much marketing emails. I just unsubscribed and you lost me as a customer, because it is irritating like hell.
Does anyone know if @GNARBOX is still in business? Waiting for the 2.0 drive which keeps getting delayed and delayed. It makes me highly suspicious. I am looking for a new drive and might have to go elsewhere soon.

could. but its so handy. granted, it is way less handy than it once was.
 
I took it off my laptop for a week and iCloud with new soon to be released MacOS works well enough to say goodbye to Dropbox. They really screwed up on the product and pricing.
