  • So, iPhone people, now that launch day details are out (8 AM on 7/11), the question is: Line up, or no? #
  • I predict plenty of iPhone supply, so it won’t be necessary to line up to get one, but I’m considering it as a fun, social, geek experience. #
  • @mattg I always have stuff to read with me – that’s what my Kindle and iPhone are for! πŸ˜‰ #
  • Watching the AT&T video walkthroughs of the activation process for existing and new iPhone owners: http://tinyurl.com/6l3pwb #
  • @samgrover Re: the Intel discount working on iPhones now, I don’t know. It would be nice, but I don’t think it’ll happen… #
  • @jmoriarty I’ve existed at Intel without IT support for years. To me they just provide infrastructure (net, email, power). That’s just me. #
  • @jmoriarty I have no idea how IT accounts for “DIY” people like me. Ideally, I should cost less for them to support. Wonder how that works? #
  • @rachelbancroft Au contraire! Your Birks are just the right personal “I’m from Eugene” touch in your “suburban soccer mom” image. πŸ˜‰ #
  • @cecilwalker Oh, I know IT does all those things (helpdesk, custom apps, etc.). I was in Intel IT for years. I just don’t use any of them πŸ™‚ #
  • @jmoriarty re: IT innovation being driven by customers pushing on them, even though their focus is stability – that sounds about right. #
  • @reidab Yes, the Ignite Portland 3 slides are on SlideShare: http://www.slideshare.net/igniteportland/slideshows #
  • Microsoft Remote Desktop 2.0 for Mac has been released (been using the beta of this useful app for a while): http://tinyurl.com/63ty3o #
  • I just had an epiphany! Want to know the REAL reason Intel isn’t deploying Vista? Because NetMeeting is no longer available. πŸ˜‰ #
  • @Jmartens Silicon wafers are round because they’re created from big columns of silicon that are sliced into wafers http://tinyurl.com/6hr835 #
  • @Jmartens Go read the comments to that old blog post I linked – they give great reasons why silicon wafers are not square. #
  • @Jmartens And I just replied to your comment on the 18 month old post on my blog, with hopefully a little more explanation. πŸ™‚ #
  • @rodfather Welcome to the FriendFeed club! “One of us! One of us!” πŸ˜‰ #
  • Bummed I won’t make it to the Legion of Talk tonight with @garyvee, but I know LoT has a hit on their hands. Have fun, everyone! πŸ™‚ #
  • Just hacked the new and improved Google Site Search into my blog, http://www.tinyscreenfuls.com. Lemme know if it broke anything. #
