  • Stopped my Kindle subscription to ArsTechnica before the 14 day trial was over. I just never read it on the Kindle (but do on the web). #
  • I still <3 Ars a ton. But I guess Bezos is right – the Kindle really is more suited for long form reading, not "information snacking". #
  • Besides, it’s not like I don’t always have at least a few devices around me with with read the web, feeds, and Twitter. πŸ˜‰ #
  • Guess what? I think I’m coming down with something. Had a stuffy/runny nose for a few days. Today, my throat hurts, and my head feels funny. #
  • @Jerry_Makare Dude, you are ISN’s video god. We wouldn’t have nearly as many good videos without you. You’re a machine! :-) #
  • @Jerry_Makare Cool. I think some of the other IDF videos I did (the MID hands on stuff) have over 5000 views so far. Yay eyeballs! :-) #
  • @Jerry_Makare Best way to increase views to your videos? Start a blog, say interesting stuff, build an audience, then send them to ISN! πŸ˜‰ #
  • @Britopian @kellyrfeller Twhirl is an Adobe AIR app. You have to have AIR installed. And I don’t think your browser LAN settings affect it. #
  • @tcv On my person, I typically have: iPhone, 2GB Flash drive, my Kindle, my Nintendo DS, and the Aiptek Go-HD video camera. :-) #
  • Just fixed the dangling Wii sensor bar in the JF1 lobby. It had been affixed with Scotch tape, always falling off. Now using velcro, sung. #
  • I meant "snug", of course. :-) #
  • I have kind of become the unofficial "Wii Guy" around these parts. I’m totally fine with that. :-) #
  • So who’s going to come over and play some Mario Kart with me? I’ve got two wheels now. #
  • Doing my expense report for Shanghai. This is going to be ugly/complicated… #
  • OK, expense report done. Time for some Mario Kart. 12:30 in the JF1 lobby. @samgrover, you in? :-) #
  • Back from Mario Kart. No one came to join me! You people work entirely too hard. πŸ˜‰ #
  • I’m actually probably not going to be around for Mario Kart at lunch tomorrow, but Friday, it’s on! :-) #
  • @chrisorourke This is the new Kinder, Gentler Intel, a.k.a. Ikea Hillsboro (new new pilot office space in JF1). :-) #
  • @jmoriarty Um, yeah. I’m not going to be the guy who gets fired for creating a "hostile work environment" by playing GTA4 in the lobby. :-) #
  • @jmoriarty Although they do have Halo 3 for the Xbox 360. I’ve never bothered to check out the controllers and fire it up. Wii = more fun πŸ˜‰ #
  • @KevinCTofel Does voice-only 3G even exist? Isn’t that, um, just GSM? I was a T-Mo guy for 7 years. Dumped em cuz they just DON’T get data! #
  • @Philhellene Yeah, but in the U.S., the best/fastest data plan that T-Mobile offers is still EDGE. What is this, 1999? πŸ˜‰ #
  • @MightySquid I second @mellowynk’s vote for WordPress. Use wordpress.com if you don’t want to host it yourself (which is more flexible). #
  • Oh, cool! Visigami is an open source image search app/screen saver for Mac from Google. Downloading now! http://tinyurl.com/5vquf5 #
  • Played with Visigami a little (Google image vis for Mac thingy). Very, very cool. Might be my new screen saver. http://tinyurl.com/5vquf5 #
  • @kellyrfeller Want to help kids work on their interpersonal skills? Get them using Twitter! πŸ˜‰ #
  • I love that, since I Twittered it, I can Google "jabancroft mario kart wii code" when I need to look it up to give to someone. :-) #
  • @kellyrfeller et al – how young is too young to start Twittering? I know that @ravenzachary and @oleoptene’s kids are on Twitter. InstaPoll! #
  • @mnology I haven’t been on WFC for Mario Kart since Monday night, but I’ve heard of the 61010 errors over at Ars: http://tinyurl.com/3tmk24 #
  • @influxx Well, it seems that basic reading/writing are prerequisite for Twitter usage. So maybe start them in Kindergarten? πŸ˜‰ #
  • @memathews Wires are so 20th century, man. I’m all about the 5.8GHz 802.11n, baby! :-) #
  • @davest it’s a rights thing, and our version of WP kinda hates youtube embeds. Can I help you in the AM? We’ll make it work. #
