  • Finished “Breaking Dawn” last night. Great book if you like the series. Lots of twists. Not sure why it’s attracting so much hate. #
  • @iSundevil You can browse/search Amazon’s Kindle books, to see if what you’re looking for is available: http://tinyurl.com/5enz46 #
  • Whee! My Eee PC 901 20GB Linux version arrived! It’s a wee PC! Squee! ๐Ÿ™‚ #
  • @jezlyn I agree. It was fan service – giving the people who love the characters what they want, rather than taking itself too seriously. #
  • Hmm. The Eee PC 901 Linux version comes with Firefox 2 instead of 3. Strange. Will upgrade soon, but I want to run “stock” for a while. #
  • @Yasumoto The Eee PC 901, with the 8.9″ screen and 1.6GHz Atom processor is $599. Windows version has 12GB, Linux version 20GB. #
  • @Yasumoto There are other, less expensive netbooks, though. MSI Wind, Acer Aspire One, Dell, Lenovo. They shoot closer to $300. #
  • So, a couple days later, what’s the verdict on iPhone OS 2.0.1 on a 3G? I’m hearing scary things from @xenijardin… ๐Ÿ™ #
  • @gregr Thanks for the vote of confidence. To everyone – does it make the interminably long “Backing up your iPhone” go faster? #
  • Because seriously, I haven’t synced my iPhone in a week or so, and it’s been “backing up” for almost an hour now… ๐Ÿ™ #
  • Anyone know where the @gnomedex Friday night party is going to be? Trying to decide if a $50 party pass for @rachelbancroft is warranted. #
  • @sondrasondra I think that’s the Thursday night welcome reception/party. At least, that’s where it’s been the past few years. #
  • @verso The Twilight Saga, of which Breaking Dawn is the 4th and presumably last, is a teenage love story with humans, vampires, and more. #
  • @verso It’s campy, emo, and the largest audience is probably Mormon housewives. But I loved the whole series. ๐Ÿ™‚ #
  • Giving in, installing iPhone OS 2.0.1. Wish me luck. #
  • @fiveforefun Yes, the Twilight movie should be… interesting. The trailer is boring. The series has a RABID fan base, though. #
  • @chrisorourke I’ve heard that 2.0.1 does revert jailbroken phones, as most updates do (until the community catches up). #
  • @sumwan I hadn’t heard of Dashwire, but it looks pretty cool. Let us know if you try it! #
  • iPhone 2.0.1 update went without a hitch. Now to see if I notice any differences. A backup happened in less than an hour, so hey… #
  • FT.com / Columnists / John Gapper – Why Sony lost the battle of the e-book (via FriendFeed) #
  • Informal Eee PC 901 (Linux) battery observation: 1.5 hours browsing the web (802.11n), battery at 79% left. #
  • That little sub-2-watt Atom chip really sips power. The 6 cell 6600mWh battery helps a lot, too. Wonder how many hours I can get out of ’em? #
  • @philips Which Eee PC model? I’m optimistic about the combo of an Atom proc (2 watts to .5 watts) big battery. Will experiment with OSes. #
