Josh’s Lifelog for 2009-09-10

  • Hey, look! iTunes 9! http://bit.ly/abCHe #
  • I won’t be live tweeting the Apple event news. But we are all following Ars, Giz, Engadget, and GDGT on the big screen in JF1. #
  • @ejacqui You’re definitely tearing it up over there. I’ve got all the live blogs open in tabs, and you and @clint and Ars beat them all. ๐Ÿ™‚ in reply to ejacqui #
  • Going to try to grab iTunes 9 and iPhone 3.1 when they become available today. Wish me luck! ๐Ÿ™‚ So when do we get all those AR apps? #
  • The new iPod nano, with video/pedometer/FM radio/mic is pretty tempting to get for my kids. I gave them an older digicam, they never use it. #
  • iTunes 9 is pretty slick. I like the redesigned App Store and other interface tweaks. #
  • App arranging in iTunes doesn’t work until you have both iTunes 9 and iPhone OS 3.1, apparently. #
  • iPhone syncing appears to be faster in iTunes 9, but I could be mistaken. It feels faster, anyway. #
  • iPhone OS 3.1 App Store Genius Screenshots http://post.ly/4UTP #
  • Wow. Searching the iTunes store in iTunes 9 is *VASTLY* improved. Nice job. #
  • Ha ha! ๐Ÿ™‚ RT @CAMURPHY: Oh good grief, look what a harmless search revealed: http://bit.ly/15N98Y
    (@jabancroft – that was you!) #
  • Some nice iPhone OS 3.1 changes: Voice Control works over Bluetooth, you can paste numbers in the Phone app, improved Exchange calendar sync #
  • @mattdavispdx *sigh* Posterous posted it 5 times to Facebook, too. Crap. Sorry about the spam. They’ve really got to fix that. in reply to mattdavispdx #
  • @posterous I desperately need your help fixing the duplicate posts problem. I’ve sent mail to help@posterous.com. How can I help you fix it? #
  • @verso iTunes 9 made the green orb do a true maximize (that switch to the mini player always bugged me). Mini toggle is now Cmd+Shift+M in reply to verso #
  • @colligan Podcast categories have been moved the the arrow dropdown next to the word “Podcasts” in the new iTunes store header bar. in reply to colligan #
  • What’s a good stereo Bluetooth headset for iPhone use? More music than phone. Last I looked, none were very good. Last I used was a Moto S9. #
  • Forgot I had a pair of MOTOROKR S9s sitting around. But the soft ear cushions are lost. Anyone have some they’d be willing to part with? #
  • Pfft. Voice Control does NOT seem to work over Bluetooth in iPhone OS 3.1. And the track controls on the MOTOROKR S9 don’t work, either. ๐Ÿ™ #
