  • @marusin I assume the new Apple buds work with iPhone, but I’ve heard conflicting reports, too. Waiting on a review. Would be silly not to. in reply to marusin #
  • Hey, remember when the iPhone 3G launched, and AT&T said they’d sell unlocked ones for $499 “after a while”? What ever happened to that? #
  • @junesix No, I remember them specifically saying that unlocked iPhones would be available in the U.S. for $499, sometime “after” the launch. in reply to junesix #
  • Hmm. Amazon Remembers employs *two* HITs on MTurk. One to say “is this identifiable and like to be on Amazon” for $0.01, and another… #
  • And another HIT for $0.10 that says “find this on Amazon”. So they have a penny filter to keep crap/nonsense out of the “identify this” pool #
  • here’s where you can see both HIT pools that Amazon Remembers uses on MTurk: http://tinyurl.com/5msskg #
  • @brampitoyo I use “non-trivial” as the opposite of trivial. Seriously. :-) in reply to brampitoyo #
  • Hmm. I’m likely going to break 3000 followers or 10000 tweets sometime this week. Wonder which will happen first? :-) #
  • Was finally able to get my Twitter Tools daily digests working again on my blog by grabbing this update: http://tinyurl.com/6p4xsc #
  • @adamd I was going to submit a picture of myself to AR, just to see what they’d do. Maybe they have a sense of humor? :-) in reply to adamd #
  • Oh awesome! I’ve finally found a video streaming site (like UStream, Kyte, etc.) that works behind the firewall. Yay Mogulus! Messing now… #
  • @Jerry_Makare If you ever wanted to do Take Five Live, this is how I’d approach it. Come over sometime, I’ll demo. in reply to Jerry_Makare #
  • RT: @rachelbancroft: “Mom, listen to my great rhyme. I know an old lady who swallowed a bell. WHAT THE HELL, she swallowed a bell.” #
  • @ahockley I’m ashamed, embarrassed, and I can’t stop laughing… :-) in reply to ahockley #
  • Hey, can you help me for a second? Join me here: mogulus.com/thejoshbancroftshow #
  • Thanks everyone for helping me expriment with Mogulus! That was REALLY FUN! :-) I’ll tweet/blog about the results, and you can expect more! #
  • @jmoriarty Hmm. It works (as a watcher) on the Intel network. At least we know that it doesn’t on VPN. Thanks for the data point. in reply to jmoriarty #
  • @petegrillo Don’t think I’m going to be able to make it to @cyborgcamp :-( but I always have my toys with me. Will share next time we meet! in reply to petegrillo #
  • Ooh, Google Reader gets a makeover. I haven’t seen it on my account yet, but I like the screenshots: http://tinyurl.com/63a7l8 #
  • RT @IgnitePortland Want to influence the next Ignite? Come to the planning kickoff on Monday: http://is.gd/afWR #
  • @Jerry_Makare @psteinb I don’t have butterscotch, but I have some Werther’s Originals, which are better, IMHO. Come get some! in reply to Jerry_Makare #
  • @psteinb Ah, I missed your sweet thief tweet. :-) in reply to psteinb #
  • @psteinb You’re not supposed to chew them. Just suck on them, calmly. That way, no teeth stuck together. in reply to psteinb #
  • @psteinb Actually, you’re welcome to any and all candy and snacks at my desk. And you get style points for tweeting a photo of the theft. :) in reply to psteinb #
  • RT @amybarton New video on ISN: Developer Viewpoint – FarCry 2 and Intel Core i7. http://tinyurl.com/takefive #
  • Ooh, I got the new Google Reader interface in my account. I like it. Much cleaner, and feels quite fast. Can’t wait to try on a netbook. #
  • @croncast Actually the old Google Reader layout, with the browser fullscreen and hit “u” to hide the sidebar, was quite good on netbooks. in reply to croncast #
  • Welcome @rogoway, tech reporter and Silicon FOREST blogger at the Oregonian, to Twitter. Glad to see you here, Mike! :-) #
  • You know, with all these new Google Reader features, it would be nice if we could rename a freaking folder by now. :-) #
  • Just trained about a dozen Intel folks in China on how to post to the ISN blog. That puts me at about 14 for today, and ~20 on the week. :-) #
  • @lunarobverse They may have made the advanced “beta” iPhone GReader interface default now. I’ve been loving it for months. :-) in reply to lunarobverse #
  • @pdxCJC How did you manage to rename a folder in Google Reader? in reply to pdxCJC #
  • According to iLounge, its only the new volume buttons on the new Apple in-ear buds that don’t work on iPhones. Clicker and mic should work. #
  • At least, I think that’s what iLounge said. Anyone have another source? #
  • Ah, excellent. Gizmodo says it IS only the volume that doesn’t work on the iPhone. Mic and clicker do work. I think I’m going to get them… #
  • Goodle Reader for iPhone got a little makeover today, too. Buttons are a lighter color, and it feels faster. #
