Josh’s Lifelog for 2009-02-10

  • @jojohnson I’ve been on a Twitter sabbatical. Sorry. New Kindle looks great, but too much $$ for me to upgrade from Kindle 1 right now. in reply to jojohnson #
  • Google now supports Exchange Activesync for over the air syncing of contacts and calendar on iPhone (and others): http://tinyurl.com/dh6z4q #
  • *sigh* It appears that comments on my blog are broken. Intense Debate is reporting “your session has expired!”. No time to tshoot now… #
  • @shergill I won’t be buying a Kindle 2 right away. I want one, but not enough features to justify the $360 upgrade price. in reply to shergill #
  • Syncing calendar and contacts between Google and my iPhone is working like a dream. I’ve longed for this day! Now, to set up @rachelbancroft #
  • @buckmasterflash Just personal calendar and contacts. Check out http://m.google.com/sync for details. in reply to buckmasterflash #
  • @Jerry_Makare Nice pic! (http://twitpic.com/1es9f) Now, the question is, did I have any dignity to begin with? ๐Ÿ˜‰ in reply to Jerry_Makare #
  • @jmoriarty I backed up and nuked everything and forced it to use the correct set of contacts. But yeah, be careful. It could easily get ugly in reply to jmoriarty #
  • @lawduck IMO, the Kindle 2 is an improvement over Kindle 1 in every way, just not enough difference for me to upgrade my Kindle 1. in reply to lawduck #
  • @shergill No discounts for Kindle 1 owners, but if they pre-order a Kindle 2 before midnight, they get to jump to the head of the line. in reply to shergill #
  • @gregoryleff @jmoriarty My contacts list is pretty static, actually. Nice to have it sync, but not a Big Deal. Calendar sync is yummier. in reply to gregoryleff #
  • @civrot We should put our heads together sometime, see if I can assuage your Fear of Google. ๐Ÿ™‚ Gmail+Gcal is now like hosted Exchange. ๐Ÿ™‚ in reply to civrot #
  • @buckmasterflash Yeah, sorry I steered you wrong on the Kindle 2 pre order thing. I’m going to be totally jealous once you get it! ๐Ÿ™‚ in reply to buckmasterflash #
  • @civrot You could always use Google Apps on your own domain. I’ve toyed with switching, but I’m pretty entrenched in Gmail. in reply to civrot #
  • @buckmasterflash Yeah, the text to speech is definitely the most interesting new feature. And they hinted “other mobile device sync”, too. in reply to buckmasterflash #
  • @buckmasterflash I’ve been saying forever that Amazon should release a Kindle app for iPhone and the like. Would be a KILLER capability. in reply to buckmasterflash #
  • @jmoriarty You can sync just calendar, or just contacts, or both. As far as the iPhone knows, Google is an Exchange server. in reply to jmoriarty #
  • @samgrover I used A to G, a little app that Google recommends, to export my Add. Book contacts into Gmail. Smooth. http://tinyurl.com/5uruvx in reply to samgrover #
  • Here’s what I did: Backed up Add. Book and GContacts. Nuked Gcontacts. Exported Add. Book to GC. Set up iPhone sync. Works great! #
  • You guys were right. Nuking my Gmail contacts and reimporting killed my GTalk contacts. Feel free to re-add me if you want to chat. #
