  • @Jerry_Makare Nice! We Kindle users will eventually take over the world, you know. You will be assimilated. :-) #
  • Was nervous about presenting my “10% innovation idea” in staff, but it was really well received. Now, to make it happen! :-) #
  • It’s so cool that I know most of the people who wrote the Obama iPhone app that everyone’s buzzing about this morning. Great job! :-) #
  • The new Nintendo DSi looks good. Two cameras, an SD slot, and bigger screens? Yes, please! Better use the same charger connector, though. #
  • Looks like the DSI drops the GBA cart slot to make room for the other stuff. That’s OK. That’s what my GBA SP (which I gave to Emma) is for! #
  • @eriksr Piracy is already rampant on the DS. I have a cart that takes a MicroSD card, and can play games from ROM files (only games I own). #
  • @eriksr It’s unclear if the DSi will boot or run software from the SD slot (beyond using it for pic/MP3 storage). But interesting point. #
  • @KevinCTofel XP in Fusion on Mac OS X on the MSI Wind? Let us know how that works out for you. I’m curious about VM performance on Atom. #
  • @gregscher Yup, I’ve been an Exposure fan from Day One, and it can still do some things the web version can’t – maps/location, etc. #
  • Just updated my Flickr iPhone Interface post with “what doesn’t work” and a screenshot of the home screen icon: http://tinyurl.com/4mfxnp #
  • RT @giovanni: SXSW interactive ’09 panels announced http://ping.fm/sXxv7 #
  • Hey, Flickr has an “add friends from your email address book” feature. Is that new? I just added a TON of you guys as contacts. Hi! :-) #
  • A cookie to the first to answer this Q: Does the multitouch trackpad on an Eee PC 1000 work (2 finger scroll) under Mac OS X (hacked)? #
  • Thanks for the Eee PC 1000 multitouch answers. @chrisorourke was first. @eriksr first with a link. Hon. mention to @superspiker. :-) #
  • As your reward, have some cookies! :-) http://tinyurl.com/4lfnwq #
  • I may have to rescind my cookies – those links go to the guide to install Mac OS X on an Eee, but don’t confirm that multitouch scroll works #
  • @superspiker et al: Ah, there it is. Mr X’s comment on August 18th confirms multtitouch scroll works: http://tinyurl.com/6cbx7t #
  • I unrescind the cookies I rescinded earlier. Thanks, guys! :-) #
  • @kellyrfeller This one’s for you (Robert Plant related): http://tinyurl.com/4snyp8 How was the show – I’m jealous! :-) #
  • My goal for the afternoon is to kick my inboxes you-know-what. These things are WAY out of control! #
  • RT @superspiker http://tinyurl.com/pdxbacon Donuts and Bacon t-shirt. Voodoo Doughnuts should start selling these – I’d buy one! :-) #
  • Work Inbox 8 achieved. Better than the couple hundred it was sitting at. :-) #
  • @lawduck I was JUST reading that. Very funny (cute aggressive Asus Eee PC marketing – http://tinyurl.com/3ql5ke) :-) #
  • My Hackintosh Netbook dreams take a twist: Mac OS X goes onto the Dell Mini 9, and EVERYTHING works (wifi, sound): http://tinyurl.com/53xwvz #
  • All of the netbooks have something that doesn’t work under OS X (wifi, ethernet, audio, etc.). The Dell is the first where it all works. #
  • Fun things I’ve heard of people cooking in honor of the VP debate: moose stew and Baked Alaska. :-) #
  • Me? I’ve been waiting for 20 minutes at a packed Papa Murphy’s for a chicken garlic pizza. Yum! #
  • I’m getting strange looks from people for how I’m dressed. I swear I didn’t plan a brown and orange ensemble on purpose! #
  • NPR analyst: “She did everything in her power to answer the question she WANTED to have been asked.” #
  • Paving my sister in law’s computer and reinstalling Vista. I feel dirty. #
  • I just discovered what the problem is with my SIL’s computer: it’s got an AMD processor. 😛 #
