newsweek japan: better than words with friends

okay, this is just a reuse of my slate piece about draw something, however, it got picked up by newsweek japan. how freaking cool does this article look in japanese? i am not much of japanophile, but i do find something wonderful about magazine and book layout in non latin formatting. to my myriad of japanese followers and readers[1. i’m huge in japan.], be sure to pick up a copy of newsweek japan, on newsstands now!

slate: draw something

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’.

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