  • I feel terrible. Lunch 2.0 comes to Beaverton, in a cool space I’ve wanted to go see (the Round). It’s right on the MAX. And I can’t make it #
  • Cool idea: 4 bloggers take a bunch of Intel MIDs on a tour, and share it with us. http://midmoves.com (via @chippy and @jmoriarty) #
  • I’m really glad to see the MidMoves tour become a reality. @chippy has been kicking this idea around for a long time. Follow along! :-) #
  • @gnarlyfarley Check out http://midmoves.com to see who’s participating, and see what they’re writing on the site. There’s a feed, too. in reply to gnarlyfarley #
  • The people involved in the MidMoves tour, in case you’re wondering, are @chippy, @ewanspence, @pocketables, and @nicolesimon. Follow ’em! :) #
  • Holy cow. MSPaint got a massive upgrade in Windows 7. It now has the Ribbon bar/interface from Office 2007. Um, yay? #
  • I upgraded my Eee PC 1000H to 2GB RAM (scavenged a stick!). Feels faster, but Windows Experience Index didn’t change at all. 2.2 (4.4 RAM). #
  • @RichClaussen I just fired up notepad.exe in Windows 7, and it looks exactly the same as it always has. No makeover there! in reply to RichClaussen #
  • @motherpopper As in, Will.I.Am “A New Day”? Do want! :-) in reply to motherpopper #
  • Wait, what? Steve Jobs is stepping down/taking a leave of absence? Trading of AAPL stock is halted? Wow. #
  • @TheSquare I heard the Apple/Steve Jobs news on Twitter, of course. A search for Apple is EXPLODING right now: http://tinyurl.com/8jqw9a in reply to TheSquare #
  • Was going to install Windows 7 on my Asus R2H UMPC, but I can’t get it to boot from my bootable USB stick. Will try DVD next. #
  • It’s a bad week to be a CEO. Yahoo, Seagate, now Apple. I hope Paul Otellini’s doing OK… #
  • Got Windows 7 installed on the Asus R2H UMPC. It’s quite slow, but then, so was XP (and Vista even moreso). Touchscreen works with no hassle #
  • I’ll mess with whatever R2H drivers Windows 7 didn’t manage to install later. WLAN isn’t working for sure, prolly some other stuff. #
  • @WarnerCrocker Re: Windows 7 on the R2H – I installed it. I didn’t say I was going to USE it. 😉 (I had Vista on it before.) in reply to WarnerCrocker #
  • @Clear is trying to get me to spend money on WiMAX. They’re going to resell those tiny CradlePoint wifi routers: http://tinyurl.com/7b44d9 in reply to clear #
  • RT @geekygirldawn Want to sponsor @IgnitePortland? You still have time! Get a 30sec video in front of the Ignite Crowd! http://bit.ly/1BMjJS in reply to geekygirldawn #
  • @steverubel says Google Notebook is shutting down. I echo his thought that I’m glad I never really used it much. http://ff.im/-C2XW in reply to steverubel #
  • @rizzn Yeah, I’ll feel very differently if the shutter Google Docs, or Reader, or GMail. Things I depend on. in reply to rizzn #
  • Wow, Google’s shutting down more than Notebook. Video Uploads, Jaiku, Dodgeball, and Catalog Search are done, too. http://bit.ly/I9OW #
  • “With the open source Jaiku Engine project, organizations, groups and individuals will be able to roll-their-own microblogging services” #
  • Link for the “Google Open Sourcing Jaiku” story: http://tinyurl.com/8bzjc4 #
  • Hey, cool! @googlereader is on Twitter, and it’s really them. Hey, guys? PLEASE don’t let Reader die! Put in ads, or whatever it takes! #
  • @mellowynk Google’s shuttering a bunch of services. Some are speculating that Reader might be next (http://tinyurl.com/74swn). I hope not! in reply to mellowynk #
  • @mellowynk I really don’t think Google Reader will go away. People use and love it too much! But it can’t hurt to beg @googlereader. :-) in reply to mellowynk #
  • @segphault I see this as a good thing for Jaiku. People can take it, implement their own instances, etc. It may die, but it may thrive. in reply to segphault #
  • @segphault I guess open sourcing a project is more “humane”, more considerate of all of the effort that went into it, than just killing it. in reply to segphault #
  • @realdnalyons gets into it with some other reporters on TV, gets banned from CNBC for life. And we get the video. http://tinyurl.com/8xm74v #
