Josh’s Lifelog for 2009-01-28

  • #pdxtst @portlandsnow is falling pretty hard in Hillsboro. About 1″ at Intel Jones Farm, falling in big fat flakes. #
  • Emma’s school just called, they’re not running buses to take morning kindergarteners home because of the snow. #
  • iStat for iPhone is out. $1.99, just snagged it. The remote monitoring of Macs via the free server applet is intriguing. #
  • Was going to go shoot some video of the ginormous snowflakes that were falling, but they stopped. Harrumph. #pdxtst #
  • @chippy Are you saying you don’t want to read my gripping up to the minute weather reports? It’s a mania that afflicts Portland tweeters. πŸ™‚ #
  • The next version of the Amazon Kindle will be announced on Feb. 9, at a NY library event hosted by Bezos: http://tinyurl.com/chj4co #
  • Amazon has been terrific about treating Kindle owners as an early adopter community. I really, REALLY hope there’s a cheap way to upgrade. #
  • @samgrover There are some really old rumor photos of the “Kindle 2” from Boy Genius Report. No idea if legit. http://tinyurl.com/4rdnpt in reply to samgrover #
  • @spinnerin There’s speculation that since Kindle is backordered since last year, orderers will receive the new one. Would be nice if true. #
  • @ericajoy My problem is that I KNOW I’m going to break down and buy the new Kindle eventually. Just hoping for a $$ break for being a fan. #
  • @maksbestfriend I understand your argument, but Amazon has gone out of their way to treat early Kindle adopters well, which is admirable. #
  • @buckmasterflash But what if the Kindle 1.0 backorders are the first to receive the new one? πŸ˜‰ I don’t blame you. I’d hold off, too. #
  • @maksbestfriend And Apple DID give iPhone early adopters a $100 credit. They didn’t have to do that, but it earned them a lot of good will. #
  • @buckmasterflash It will pay off. And I’ll totally be jealous if you get a new Kindle before I do. πŸ™‚ in reply to buckmasterflash #
  • @kristinwolff I can think of at least a dozen people who have bought a Kindle after getting an “evangelist demo” from me. Fans sell Kindles. #
  • Flickup, my favorite iPhone Flickr uploader, now has Tweetie integration. Cool! πŸ™‚ http://bit.ly/1v5z1A #
  • Cool – apparently the face recognition in iPhoto ’09 works on cats as well as humans: http://tinyurl.com/cbp5wf πŸ™‚ #
  • @billpearson I’m wanting to check out iLife ’09 solely for the amazing video stabilization iMovie now has. Have heard great things today. #
  • @billpearson I’ve heard (today, from people who just got it) that iMovie 09 video stabilization does great things for Flip Mino HD footage. #
  • @JoshProStar daringfireball.net had good links today (with sample footage) on iMovie 09’s video stabilization. Sounds like great stuff. in reply to JoshProStar #
