A reviewer on the app store gave an app a 3 star review with this commentary:
This app is kind of a disappointment. There is no demo version to try it first, which is sketchy for an app that costs so much (even when it’s on sale). I thought it would be able to do more but it seems kind of limited. If it wasn’t three dollars on sale and five dollars regularly, I wouldn’t be so disappointed.
The app costs three dollars.
THREE FUCKING DOLLARS.
Less than the cost of a cup of Starbucks coffee.

In passing, Luke asked the team, "Do you think that all the power that goes into lighting the exit signs in the US is more than that of a small country?"
I love questions like this. My immediate answer was, "No."
"They don't?" he responded.
"I don't know. You asked, 'Do you think?' and I think it doesn't." A much different answer of "I think" versus "It is."
I also love that instead of immediately googling the answers, we talked about it. The team had done some energy-related calculations at the beginning of the year, and was able to recall some of them. I was quickly wondering, how much does a sign use? How many signs are in an average sized building? How many buildings are there? WHO ELSE HAS ALREADY DONE THIS CALCULATION?
That last one was the right one to ask. The EPA had done the calculation (of course). You can't believe everything you read on the intarwebs, but let's go with this one:
