@mathowie said, "When I was a kid, I always thought in the future I'd get paid to look at something like the Sprint Now dashboard"
Intrigued, I looked, and then we discussed in our editor's chat room:
surely we can comment somehow on this
playing pong already
haha, boing boing is on there [First we'd heard of it – Ed.]
god damn it I want to hate this btu I don't
it's useless but cool
This is cooler than it should be. They should let you embed these
And customize them. e.g. set the location for the weather widget
Yeah, but did you se some fo the widgets interact?
is Les Savy Fav the default music for everyone or have they tapped into my brainwave cookies
like the trees into houses thing
I don't ahve music
I have ambient sound
one of the widgets is LSF - Let's Stay Friends fo rme
oh cool the widgets change
I LIKE THIS BUT I DON"T WANT TO
and actually the YouTube widget is something i just watched the other day, too
no it loaded les savy fav for me too
and I haven't listened to them
i'm feeling surveilled
Brooklyn-based indie pop? It'll never work.
Wow, that's weird.
This is one of those times we should just paste the chat into the post, but if we do it we should make sure we say something smugly meta-aware of our intentions.
DIVIDE BY ZERO

Looks interesting from a design point. Unfortunately, being a longtime Sprint customer, I think that you cannot tart up and gloss over things to sell what a service that is badly in need of improvement.
