  • Grabbing a Jamba Juice for breakfast. Mango FTW! #
  • Watching a Summize search for “Nintendo” is just like being at their E3 press conference. Animal Crossing Wii yay! http://tinyurl.com/6o9lrr #
  • And I didn’t even notice that Summize has already been rebranded search.twitter.com. Cool! #
  • @jmoriarty I dumped Loopt because 1) It doesn’t DO anything, and 2) they’re acting kind of scummy with SMS spam: http://tinyurl.com/5fkdwt #
  • @jmoriarty Loopt won’t SMS spam YOU, it sends SMS spam to your contacts, no way to opt out besides emailing/calling them. Read the last link #
  • The Portland Craigslist market for used iPhones seems to have held up OK – still in the $300-$350 asking range: http://tinyurl.com/2dk5cd #
  • Restoring my iPhone 3G. Hold me, I’m scared! #
  • @ravenzachary Yeah, I expect it to take about the same amount of time as my 1.0 -> 2.0 upgrade. Still a scary time, though! :-) #
  • @jmoriarty Hey, how come I can’t comment on your Open Port post? Are you trying to stifle conversation? Don’t make me karate chop you! ๐Ÿ˜‰ #
  • @queenmarypat I LOVE my iPhone 3G, almost as if it were a tiny, glass-and-plastic member of my family. :-) #
  • @ejacqui I was getting MASSIVE delays in most apps when the keyboard comes up. 30 seconds or more. Doing a restore to see if it helps. #
  • And my iPhone is back from Restore Land. Had a scary couple of minutes where it couldn’t pick up a cell signal, though the radio was nuked. #
  • Wait. Why does iTunes want to restore my phone from backup AGAIN, when I try to sync now? #
  • @kellyrfeller Why do I have to register just to post a comment? And why is there nothing on the page that tells me so? Kinda user-hostile… #
  • @greghughes I want it to restore from a backup, but it JUST did that, like 5 minutes prior. I’ll let this one run its course. #
  • @eriksr I’ve brought all of my iPhone troubles upon myself – messing around, restoring, etc. Majority of people never deal with any of this. #
  • @bschlenker Looking for an iPhone game? Get Tap Tap Revenge. It’s free, and awesome! Think Guitar Hero/DDR on iPhone. :-) #
  • @eriksr iPhone is light years beyond Windows Mobile in terms of stability (I used WM for years). My probs are because I’m on bleeding edge. #
  • Hmm. This second, unnecessary iPhone backup restore seems to be stalled around 50%. Should I intervene, or leave it? #
  • As in, the “Restoring iPhone from backup” progress bar hasn’t moved in 20 minutes. How bad is it if I interrupt? #
  • I unplugged it. Phone was completely wedged. I forced it into recovery mode, going to try another restore. *sigh* #
  • After this restore, I’m NOT going to restore from a backup. Start clean, then sync stuff over. What I should have done in the first place. #
  • Plan Restore-but-don’t-load backup was successful. Data synced back over, syncing media now. None of the hiccups I was hoping to squash yet. #
  • Looks like the Last.fm free iPhone app is out: http://tinyurl.com/5dy9f7 #
  • Twitter Streamgraphs are very cool – a graph of the words you use most in your last 200 tweets: http://tinyurl.com/54rtqn (hat tip @blogan) #
  • @theRab I agree no scrobbling in the last.fm iPhone app sucks. But they know my music taste better than Pandora, because I’ve used them more #
  • Psst! 30 O’Reilly books are being released as DRM-free ebooks, and headed to the Kindle store today. Yay! :-) http://tinyurl.com/59re5m #
  • @bobduffy But when I go to Jeff’s post, not logged in, I don’t see ANYTHING that tells me I can post a comment. It just says “No comments.” #
  • Been waiting for a Kindle version of Devices of the Soul, so I can finish reading it. Might finally finish Wikipedia: TMM, too. #
  • Portvangelists take note: Charlene Li tweetup, Wed at 8:30pm at the Governor Hotel bar. Spread the word! http://tinyurl.com/6l75ud #
  • @charleneli says if you bring your copy of Groundswell, she’ll sign it, and buy you a drink. :-) @turoczy, how bout a blog post? ๐Ÿ˜‰ #
  • Created an Upcoming event for the @charleneli tweetup tomorrow night. Spread the link, would you please? http://tinyurl.com/5vgz66 #
  • See what Twitter is saying about tomorrow night’s @charleneli tweetup, and who’s going! http://tinyurl.com/6dxxuy #
  • @turoczy I figured I had to act fast if I was going to beat you to it. Actually, I don’t care, as long as it was on there somewhere. ๐Ÿ˜‰ #
  • @justinkistner That’s because @turoczy is going to be out of town tomorrow night. He gets a pass this time. ๐Ÿ˜‰ #
  • My iPhone 3G has been behaving MUCH better after restoring to 5A347 and not restoring a backup. No freezes/reboots, location working great. #
  • @kodachrome22 Haven’t tested reception yet, but I don’t expect it to change. The update didn’t touch the radio firmware. I’ll report, though #
  • @bschlenker These are basically the steps I followed: http://tinyurl.com/6onk9x Find where iTunes keeps backups and move em to avoid restore #
  • Ooh! My first iPhone app update (Evernote 1.0.1) just came through. #
