  • For those comparing the new HP DreamScreen to a tablet, you realize that it doesn't have a battery, and is meant to sit on a desk, right? #
  • AFAICT, the stand poking out the back isn't foldable, and it doesn't look designed to be hand held. It's got a remote. It needs wall power. #
  • The HP DreamScreen is a (very nice) digital picture frame, that's all. http://j.mp/niyfI I want one, but it's not a "tablet computer" at all #
  • Here's a PDF of the HP DreamScreen specs: http://j.mp/gPzAQ I find no mention of battery. And the screen isn't a touchscreen. #
  • @abraun I can't find any mention of what OS and software it runs, so I don't know. But the VentureBeat article says it doesn't run Windows. in reply to abraun #
  • Woo hoo! @Posterous Theming is live. An essential feature, long awaited. Thanks, guys! ๐Ÿ™‚ http://bit.ly/ziW30 #
  • @LorenHeiny Heh. By that rationale, my TV could be considered a tablet. It can display photos/video/weather, controls are on the bezel. ๐Ÿ™‚ in reply to LorenHeiny #
  • @onportland Only found out yesterday about Girl Talk playing tonight, and it's a bit late for a work night, but I'll be there in spirit. ๐Ÿ™‚ in reply to onportland #
  • Wow – people are panhandling to try to get into the Girl Talk show at the Roseland tonight: http://bit.ly/7BV7x #
  • I just became the mayor of Papa Murphy's Pizza – Aloha on @foursquare! http://bit.ly/Wy8X9 #
  • Nice! Waze for iPhone 1.2 update adds turn by turn voice guidance, Google local search. Sweet update to an already awesome free app. #
