After carefully perusing this comic (and laughing a little bit too loud for office-level volumes) I was a little discomforted by the fact that the Pork'd mock design looks ridiculously similar to the current version of GLM.

The three best ways in which to build an iPhone app according to The Wall Street Journal.The three best ways in which to build an iPhone app according to The Wall Street Journal.

Here I thought WSJ was providing methods in which to actually build an iPhone apps and not advice on how to BUILD UP an iPhone app. A couple of extra words in the headline may have fixed that mixup for me, WSJ. Cough.

Call me crazy, but I think the hand basket building is actually kind of cool rather than ugly as the article suggests. They make hand baskets after all - so the architecture works on a functional level.
