the new hot app for iphone/ipad/facebook/android/whathaveyou is draw something, a social pictionary* style game in the vein of words with friends, the latest and greatest way to use your device to scratch your butt. according to the farhad manjoo, the joy comes from the ease of play and lack of rules. according to me, i signed up, started a random game with somebody who drew what were presumably shoes, then drew an arrow pointing at said shoes, and then wrote: ‘goes on feet’.
slate: better than words with friends, by farhad manjoo.

*i am a bit of a grump about this as i have always hated pictionary.
