a comparative review
of the $60
Razer Firefly mousepad
By and large, the mousepad is an irrelevant affectation. It’s a fashion statement. Its job could be outsourced to any decent-sized piece of cardboard. And so when Razer sent over a Firefly review unit—yes, even after reading my article on the announcement—I decided to test my theory. I took a piece of cardboard off the Razer Firefly box and compared it to the Firefly.
Apparently the reviewed item has been superseded by the Razer Firefly-Hard Gaming Mouse Mat and if you buy it at the link, my friends, I get a cut!
If you were amused by the previous link,
How would you express your amusement in your social media communications?
We analyzed de-identified posts and comments posted on Facebook in the last week of May with at least one string of characters matching laughter1. We did the matching with regular expressions which automatically identified laughter in the text, including variants of haha, hehe, emoji, and lol2.
For the geeky, the (Java-syntax, I think) regexes are in the linked article.
