Josh’s Lifelog for 2009-07-09

  • Managed to buy and download Tweet Reel this morning, but it wasn’t $0.99 anymore. πŸ™ I’ll test it out later. #
  • @aaroneiche 8 Twitter apps on my iPhone right now: Birdfeed, Tweetie, Twitterific, Birdhouse, Tweetdeck, Audioboo, Tweetmic, and Tweet Reel. in reply to aaroneiche #
  • Finding great new iPhone apps already. Check out Lyrical (show lyrics of playing songs) and DoGood (collective acts of kindness). Both free. #
  • Audioboo (post audio to Twitter and more) is about to get a killer feature (though not for free): text transcription. http://bit.ly/asUcl #
  • RT @rachelbancroft: Gabe yells “car party!!” every time we pass a car dealership with balloons. So we hear that every 30sec on TV Hwy. πŸ™‚ #
  • So the Kindle 2 got a price drop, huh? $299 – http://amazon.com/kindle There goes the resale market for my first gen Kindle. Oh well. πŸ™‚ #
  • Oh, crap. I missed 12:34:56 7/8/9 by *THAT* much! πŸ™ #
  • Testing posting a video with Tweet Reel on my iPhone 3GS. http://tweetreel.com/?4dhpr #
  • Looks like Tweet Reel does the same compression (640×480 to 480×360 and 3.6Mbps to 800Kbps) to video files as emailing them does. #
  • So far, the only way I’ve found to get full 640×480 3.6Mbps video files off of the iPhone 3GS besides syncing is using PixelPipe. #
  • Another thing I love about PixelPipe: I can upload a full quality video once, and it goes to multiple destinations (Blip.tv, YouTube, etc.). #
  • @unclenate Actually, PixelPipe was made for images, and does them very well. Only recently added support for video. in reply to unclenate #
  • @shadowbottle I haven’t tried the copy/paste full res trick with a video. Anyone know if that works? in reply to shadowbottle #
  • Huh. I can’t seem to copy/paste a video on my iPhone 3GS into an email. When I paste, nothing happens, and email goes without attachment. #
  • Dang it! I missed 04:05:06 07/08/09 (both times), too! :-/ #
  • @todd_logan Actually, we’ll get 05:06:07 08/09/10 next year, no? in reply to todd_logan #
  • At Bete Lukas Ethiopian restaurant for the #IP6 speaker/organizer dinner. it’s delicious! πŸ™‚ – Photo: http://bkite.com/09omU (from Bete…) #
  • OK! It’s @Whiffies time! I needs me some fried pie goodness. And I only get to this side of the river every so often! #
  • Cool iPhone app discovery: if you like Daft Punk “Harder Better Faster Stronger”, you *need* the free iDaft app (samples on a soundboard). #
  • @turoczy I still say “twoosh!” in my head when I nail a 140 character tweet. And I subconsciously try to make it happen with each tweet. πŸ™‚ in reply to turoczy #
