Josh’s Lifelog for 2008-09-08

  • As TechCrunch50 gets underway, does anyone still use (or even remember?) any of the stuff shown last year? Not me. #
  • @ejacqui Did you just admit to still using DanceJam? I don’t even know what that is, but it sounds embarassing. πŸ˜‰ #
  • Twitterrific for iPhone 1.1 is out, and the list of improvements is huge. Better handling of photos, location, etc. Go get it! πŸ™‚ #
  • Barack Obama’s new book, “Change We Can Believe In”, made available on Kindle 1 day before the dead tree version: http://tinyurl.com/5ert5h #
  • @magearwhig Yeah, Mint.com was a cool idea. I used them for a while, but deleted my account. Their alerts were just too slow – 2 days late. #
  • @sumwan Haven’t read Obama’s other books yet, but I have Samples sitting on my Kindle, waiting for me to get to them. πŸ™‚ #
  • Here I am: http://tinyurl.com/6k3szm (testing Mobile Twitterrific on iPhone.) #
  • @DinkerP2 Neither. I AM the tree. πŸ˜‰ #
  • Whoa. Amazon has the Eee PC 901 20GB 6 cell batt (the same one I’ve been using) for $499, in stock (was $599): http://tinyurl.com/5dhm62 #
  • @billpearson re: tweetups – just do it! You have to have built your network before hand, though. Make it cool and fun and people will come! #
  • I consider the Eee PC 901 the Cadillac 9 inch netbooks (fast, big battery, 802.11n, etc.). Amazon knocking $100 off the price is just icing. #
  • @atmasphere Yes, it has Bluetooth 2.0 EDR. I just didn’t have room in my tweet. πŸ™‚ Also, 1.3MP cam, array mics, SD reader, etc., of course. #
  • Let me put it this way: there’s nothing that other 9 inch netbooks have that I wish the 901 had. #
  • @andyabramson How would you characterize performance on the Acer? I’ve heard it’s, um, kinda slow. πŸ™‚ And do you have the 6-cell battery? #
  • @niksmit The Dell Mini 9, as ships today, doesn’t have built-in 3G. It has a slot for it in the future, though. Besides, without a plan… #
  • Monday Surprise: Out of the blue, Cory Doctorow drops a new book on us: “Content”, a collection of essays. And of course, free CC downloads. #
  • Go download Cory Doctorow’s new book, “Content”, in .txt and .PDF (so far): http://tinyurl.com/64l4ty #
  • And if you like Cory’s stuff, buy a copy, give it to a friend, or donate it to a library: http://craphound.com/content/buy/ #
  • @niksmit There’s a slot for a 3G card in the future, but it’s not there yet. See the tons of internal photos: http://tinyurl.com/5lmyqj #
  • @niksmit Gizmodo debunks the “all Dell Mini 9s have hidden built in 3G”: http://tinyurl.com/6nmep7 #
  • Here I am: http://tinyurl.com/5apb86 , at a friend’s kid’s birthday party. #
  • Now that Mobile Twitterrific pulls 100 recent updates instead of 20, I’ve got a LOT more tweets to read. More useful? Hmm… #
  • At said bday party, off by myself. Someone asked if I’m being antisocial. “No, just differently-social. I’m Twittering.” πŸ˜‰ #
  • @DinkerP2 Why, thank you! I’m trying out some new branch pomade. You like? πŸ˜‰ #
  • @ashokraj 15″? That’s a whole other kind of machine. Not a throw-in-your-bag system like a netbook. If I carry that big, I want my Mac. πŸ™‚ #
