Update: According to @Scobleizer this is all bunk, and Jason was lying. Sorry. I really believed him. To joke about a few features is one thing, but to drag on so many detailed tweets and to emphasize that he’s not joking is taking it too far. Why would you risk your credibility over something like this? Anyway, sorry folks for dragging you here.
