  • @debbieweil Blip lets you pick your license. Blip doesn’t claim an egregious amount of rights over what you upload. Blip let’s you download. in reply to debbieweil #
  • @debbieweil Blip auto-generates a podcast feed (with the extra iTunes metadata). Blips embedded player is customizeable and awesome. in reply to debbieweil #
  • @debbieweil Blip doesn’t force ads. Blip can sideload to archive.org et al. Blip supports HD. And the people who run blip are responsive. in reply to debbieweil #
  • @debbieweil Can you tell I love blip.tv? πŸ˜‰ Been using them for years, they’re the best video service out there, IMO. in reply to debbieweil #
  • @tomreynolds You’re welcome. πŸ™‚ I’ve been a huge Blip.tv fan for years. Keep up the good work, and say Hi to Mike for me! πŸ™‚ in reply to tomreynolds #
  • New issue of Make Magazine arrived last night – all about steampunk and “lost knowledge”. Mmm, brain candy! πŸ™‚ http://makezine.com/17/ #
  • Data point: been using Safari 4 beta (on a Mac) full time for about a day now, and it hasn’t crashed once. Better than Firefox 3.1b2 there. #
  • So, happy new Kindle 2 owners, how is the text-to-speech, really? Do you think you’ll use it much? #
  • @iSundevil How are the speakers? I think I’d use headphones more often than the speakers, so as not to annoy my neighbors. πŸ™‚ in reply to iSundevil #
  • @jkuramot That bugged me, too (Safari opening new windows instead of tabs), so I enabled “single window mode”: http://tinyurl.com/4bm5bg in reply to jkuramot #
  • @aaroneiche I’ve done a few of the projects in Make, but I WANT to do them all. It tickles the geeky parts of my brain something fierce. πŸ™‚ in reply to aaroneiche #
  • @aaroneiche I’ve subscribed to Make from the beginning, happy to support what they stand for with my $$, even if I never made one project. in reply to aaroneiche #
  • @clint Really? I had the opposite problem (links that should be new tabs spawned new windows). Fixed by forcing single window mode. #Safari4 in reply to clint #
  • @clint But I see what you mean about windows that *should* be popups (like the forum reply on Ars) capturing. Any idea how to fix? #Safari4 in reply to clint #
  • @gregoryleff So far, Safari 4 has been VERY fast, and VERY stable. At least as fast as, and more stable than, Firefox 3.1 beta 2 IMHO. in reply to gregoryleff #
  • @tweetie @atebits nice to see Tweetie at the top of “What’s Hot” in the app store. Congrats – you deserve it! http://twitpic.com/1p3kb #
