  • Does anyone know if Sprint offers a “Day Pass” for EVDO/mobile broadband, like Verizon does? http://bit.ly/eie00No-contract pay-as-you-go? #
  • @Jmartens In general, why do you prefer Verizon to Sprint for EVDO? I haven’t used either, would love to hear reasons either way. in reply to Jmartens #

  • @SarahCofer Yeah, but the problem was they were tearing up the young plants in the garden. @rachelbancroft didn’t appreciate that. πŸ™‚ in reply to SarahCofer #
  • @SuperSpiker @rachelbancroft spends at least an hour a day on backyardchickens.com. It’s her new online community. πŸ™‚ in reply to SuperSpiker #
  • It seems that Gmail’s spam filters are asleep this morning. I’ve received about 20 pieces of blatant spam since last night. What gives? #

  • @KevinDJones I know. AudioBoo sounds REALLY good. Super easy to set up. I’ll likely start doing more short podcasts/audio tweets with it. in reply to KevinDJones #
  • @gregleff I did have one person heartily recommend SocialScope as the best Twitter app for BlackBerry. I passed it on to my friend. πŸ™‚ in reply to gregleff #
  • @ahockley If you use RememberTheMilk, they have a great iPhone web interface and app that syncs. Google Tasks is great, too. in reply to ahockley #
  • Who knew there was an iPhone version of Yahoo Pipes? http://iPhone.pipes.yahoo.com http://twitpic.com/5888d #
  • Intel’s having a community celebration at Pioneer Courthouse Square right now. Just passed by on MAX, had a decent crowd. #
  • Date night! Going to see Star Trek tonight with @rachelbancroft. Would have gone last week, but it was our turn to babysit. GeekCred– πŸ˜‰ #
  • As a hard core, convention-going, tricorder-owning fan, I was prepared to be let down, but Star Trek was Perfect. Superb. Badass. πŸ™‚ #
  • And the Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen trailer had me bouncing in my seat like a little kid. πŸ™‚ G.I. Joe, not so much. #

  • @OReilly What? You don’t take advantage of your awesome Twitter handle? That could be a whole side business! (Thanks for correcting.) πŸ™‚ in reply to OReilly #
  • Thanks for all of the BlackBerry Twitter app recommendations last night. Seems like UberTwitter and TwitterBerry lead the pack. #
  • @emmabancroft (she’s 5) made her mom, @rachelbancroft, breakfast in bed this morning. It was pretty darn cute. http://bit.ly/OOh96 πŸ™‚ #
  • @lisapadilla Do you mean my favorite Twitter app for iPhone? It’s @Tweetie, no question. http://bit.ly/EFBQX There is none greater. πŸ™‚ in reply to lisapadilla #
  • I love my newly clean desk! The question is, how long will I be able to keep it this way? πŸ˜‰ #

  • Just cleaned off my desk. There were WAY too many empty gadget boxes. And where did all those dust bunnies come from? #
  • This Twitter @reply drama is getting ridiculous. It totally breaks the cool, useful “view threaded conversation” feature in @Tweetie. πŸ™ #
  • Dear @Twitter: Just put the stupid @replies system back the way it was. If it won’t scale, fix it. #openreplies #fixreplies #ridiculous #
  • @pdxjdangel I don’t know what a “legal CLE” is, but I’ve done “social media 101”-type presentations all over the place. It’s probably me. πŸ™‚ in reply to pdxjdangel #
  • RT @chockenberry: More about #replygroups here: http://bit.ly/IUg2v (interesting possibility opened by #bustedreplies) #
  • Hey, Twitter! What’s the consensus on the best Twitter app for BlackBerry? I need to hook a friend up. #
  • Hi, Twitter of an hour ago. Up here in the future, things are pretty good. Hang in there. If they get you patched up, you can join us here. #
  • I think @davewiner is on to something re: #bustedreplies: Celeb n00bs getting deluged with @replies. Stresses Twitter with 1M+ followers. #

  • Awesome morning. @jerry_makare is a rock star. Best Supar Sekrit Project test yet. Can’t wait to show this to you guys! πŸ™‚ #
  • @MCP85 Look for something in the first part of June… πŸ™‚ in reply to MCP85 #
  • @geekygirldawn Nice! I’ve got to see this presentation that @missrogue is showing that has my Flickr stream in it. I keep hearing about it! in reply to geekygirldawn #
  • RT @geekygirldawn: actually, it’s on slide 187 here: http://bit.ly/4GQJZ (my Flickr screenshot, which is also here: http://bit.ly/wH8tP) #
  • In other news, I’m amazed that @missrogue’s “Making Whuffie” preso is 280 (!) slides long. Hope she runs through it @lessig style! πŸ™‚ #
  • RT @IgnitePortland: Only 5 days left to submit a talk for Ignite Porltland 6! http://twurl.cc/xvo #
  • Oops. Just retweeted from @igniteportland as @igniteportland. Be careful when you’re logged into a multi-account app like Tweetie, kids! πŸ™‚ #
  • @bryanrhoads You’d better hope that @OregonStatePolice aren’t following you, in real life or on Twitter. πŸ˜‰ in reply to bryanrhoads #
  • @ahockley I highly recommend @Pogue’s Leopard: The Missing Manual. It’s excellent. Apple Hacks from @oreilly is also great. in reply to ahockley #
  • You were right, Twitter. Peggle for iPhone is supremely good. And supremely addictive. #iphonecrack #

  • Cool! Amazon released an iPhone version of the Kindle Store: http://bit.ly/iNy2u http://twitpic.com/4zx4x #
  • Now that it’s relatively easy to browse and buy Kindle books on the iPhone, it’s a lot closer to being a “mini Kindle”. #
  • @joewevans I believe it’s just Amazon’s Mobile Safari version, extended to show books from the Kindle store. Should work fine on the Touch. in reply to joewevans #
  • @mike_strock Hmm. I sent that iPhone Kindle link directly from my iPhone. Try this article from @ReadWriteWeb instead: http://bit.ly/18GOpd in reply to mike_strock #
  • @MCP85 No app update necessary – they just changed the web page that comes up when you hit “Get More Books” from inside the Kindle app. in reply to MCP85 #
  • RT @geekygirldawn: “You may own the software, but the community owns itself.” – Clay Shirky http://bit.ly/NjrFm via @mlees at #c20 #
  • Hey @bliptv gurus, how do I get an RSS feed generated by Blip to contain only the .mp4 video file, and NOT the FLV that it generates? #
  • @natetrue MP4 first doesn’t fix my particular problem (it’s eating both enclosures). But I’ve found a workaround. Thanks for the help! πŸ™‚ in reply to natetrue #
  • It seems Peggle is now out for the iPhone: http://bit.ly/W7sWN I’ve heard so many rave about it, but have never played. It’s $5. Opinions? #
